This is Nikhil's primary blog. My secondary blog is called brownguygossip and that's the one which i've been using frequently. However i wish to move back to this blog and it would be highly appreciated if you can follow this blog if you're following my secondary blog too.
Makes the transition a lot easier. Thank you

You’re torn between what you have, what you want, and what you should want. And that’s when you wish someone else could make the decisions for you.

I know that one day, I’m going to regret my inability to communicate my emotions effectively. I’ll just keep self-destructing till then. Hoping that people read my mind. And getting mad about the fact that they can’t.

If I try hard enough

If I try hard enough, I can smell the interiors of my Hyundai I20.
If I try hard enough, I can taste Pramila Aunty’s delicious chole bhature. 
If I try hard enough, I can see my best friends huddled together, smiling back at me.
If I try hard enough, I can hear “Dhoom Machaale” being played at the musical fountains opposite my house at exactly 7 pm.  
If I try hard enough, I can touch the cold rails of the rickshaw as I get into it.
If I try hard enough, I can feel the warmth of my mother as she hugs me when I wake up in the morning.
If I try hard enough, I have created my very own time machine.
And India is just a few stops away.

Anonymous asked: How would do you describe your college years? What have you learned? How have you changed? Sorry for the questions! I'm also coming from India to study in states!


Answer:

Umm college has been a really long life lesson. An eye opener. Sure it’s the best four years of your life and you’ll have a lot of fun, but then again who doesn’t.
For me, college was more about becoming independent and adapting to a new society. I was very sheltered back in India. And then I was thrown halfway across the world into a country where they spell aluminium and colour wrong. Today I can actually deal with my shit without going to my parents for literally everything. To give you an idea of just how pathetic I was before college, I didn’t care to make my own bed and clean my room (my maids did it), I didn’t know how to do my laundry, I refrained from walking into the kitchen to even get myself a glass of water (I would yell for my maid to get it), I sure as fuck didn’t know how to cook, and I was horrible at managing money. Not that I’m a spendthrift but still. 
Apart from that, I’ve just been exposed to so much after coming here. If you’ve lived in India all your life like I have, you know the shortcomings of our society. There’s so much censorship, there are so many close-minded fucks and you just don’t have this kind of a college community where you can openly discuss everything under the sun. That’s what I got here. Different cultures, different groups, different individuals, different issues, and different viewpoints. And I have received as much if not more education outside the classroom than I have in it. 
I’m more tolerant and more informed.
And lastly, the people in this country love to talk. Small talk is an art that they have perfected. And they find even the most boring shit interesting. 
For an introvert like me who couldn’t make small talk even if someone held a gun to my dick, the whole culture of talking so much was frightening at first. But it helped. I’ve become better at communicating and expressing myself in a group. I’m a lot less shy. And that’s a good thing, right?

Anonymous asked: Makes sense. I believed that it would make them a bit proud but it was too much to hope for. Indian family members seem to never be happy but mine could be the exception rather than the example. Oh that's pretty cool. You're already a good story teller so it'll definitely transfer well. So, since you're a Psych-y, what am I thinking? Lol.


Answer:

Yea I’m planning to pitch NBC a story of my life haha. Let’s see if they’ll take me up on that.
And you’re thinking…”Man I hope this guy doesn’t guess which blog I’m running”

Anonymous asked: Hmm might be a regional thing? My cv and resume are non-existent. Wandering a la ngo/np, joining rebel causes but it's something. I don't think the walls of an institution can satisfy me as much as education in the streets. To each his own. What did/are you pursuing (if you want to share)?


Answer:

A regional thing? Rebel causes. You sound so badass! Forgive me if I sound stupid. Can’t help it at this point. 
And the walls of an institution aren’t meant to satisfy us. I’m pretty sure my parents wasted a lot of money on my four years of education. And I’m pretty sure that a year’s worth of work in the field will teach me more than I’ve learnt all this while. But whatever, I have the seal of approval from society. Now, the indian uncles and aunties can’t say shit to me….Except make fun of me because I can’t read their minds. Because that’s what they expect psychology majors to do.
Oh and I’m majoring in psych and econ. And going to grad school for television and film.
