An engineer by occupation and a traveler by heart, I also like to dabble in writing the occasional article. I am also a newbie in the world of books, finding my way. What I write here are simply excerpts from my curious mind.

Summer vacation was about to start and my pocket-sized brain was managing a massive brainstorming session for the holidays. Hitting the ground for an early morning cricket game was a good option while sleeping till 9, was not a bad thought either. My thoughts were in oscillation until a tap on the head broke the momentum; it was my elder brother. Meanwhile, Dad enters and announces that we will be visiting our native place this holiday. Well, to make it more generic and let you feel the moment, his exact words were “Dadi ke ghar jana hai iss chutti”. Hearing that I was so delighted, my heart floated away in the river of ecstasy.
At the mere age of 4, a kid barely has knowledge of anything. Rather, has his own interpretation of the world, pushing against imaginative and physical limitations and constantly re-creating the world as they see it. Well, I was also one among those who had his own stories to recite.
“Ma, I’m coming home next week”, exclaimed Rohit
“Really!!” his mother rejoiced
“Yes Ma, my leave just got approved”

The third year was on the verge and as per the college curriculum, every student had to undergo one month training. Rohit had a strong political background and that made it easy for him to get a jack anywhere he wanted while I belonged to an upper-middle-class family which meant inconclusive struggle. I managed to get a positive response from a company in my hometown.
Depression is not often believed to be a serious problem and people don’t take it seriously. Well, regardless of your belief nearly 4.4% of the world’s population is suffering from it which hints at a serious problem and I was one among them.
