Sections and Subdomains

Creative & Writing

  • blog - Personal blog containing my thoughts, reactions, musings, and abstract tangents running around.
  • stories - Short stories that I write. Inspired and derived from various day-dreams, inspirations, and thoughtful encounters.
  • poems - Poetry as means of expressions. Sometimes I just feel the need to sing, and to write, and to tell. What comes out is poetry.
  • articles - Thoughts and opinions about non-personal things such as politics, technology, love, friends, and everyday life.


  • journal - Personal/Private/Public journal containing entries related to my daily life.
  • lifeX - Life Experiments are something I do to make living exciting. I experiment with certain like the sleeping pattern, diets, calling people, time management, technologies to learn and a lot more. It's a great way to do and try things that I would otherwise have made excuses for citing lack of time. Know more about Life Experiments through a (quite good in my opinion) presentation based on a talk I gave on the topic.
  • friends - the place for my friends where I keep my messages and gifts for them.
  • hobbies - My hobbies are Books (Reading), Movies, TV Shows (Watching), Games (Playing), Photography. I keep a log of them with details such as duration, whether I completed it, how much did I like it, whether I recommend it, making lists, etc.
