Some Drum Glory

One day in 2010, a girl in pigtails and a skinny school boy sat in his room, watching their favourite TV show, ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’. She went downstairs to get something to drink, and when she came back up, he was holding up a big wide smile and 2 drumsticks.  He happily told her all about how…

The Melton Orientation

Life doesn’t come with warnings. Neither does it make announcements. The things that change your life always happen in the blink of an eye. And one life changing experience happened to nineteen young adults from across the globe in January 2016. The Melton Foundation is an international organisation promoting global citizenship and as one of…

Re-Engineering Society

Ashwin :”It was 3 am at night, during our semester end exams. He got a call from this really rude stranger. The guy on the phone told him, “You walk around as though you are a messiah , trying to save our society. If you really are what you claim to be, there is a…

The Capture

 The stories Re-Engineer Yourself is receiving are leaving me speechless. The number of people out there, stuck in mainstream lives, unwillingly going through desk jobs and pointlessly studying subjects they don’get, will leave you speechless too. And while most of these people join such courses because they don’t want to take risks, one story caught…

The Dramatic Engineer

Everybody is an artist. A doodle, a twist on a recipe, grooving to music, writing an essay, making up a love song for valentine’s day, thinking of a good lie, it’s all art. And so is engineering. Engineering is arguably the most intricate art there is. Thinking of a product or a process or a…

Re-engineer Yourself

Hey reader, long time no see.   Over the last one month I have been able to travel around Europe and as you know, collecting stories is my favourite past time. But, on this trip, I realised a few things. I have cousins drawing six figure salaries every month in different MNCs, and they say,…

Objects, objects everywhere!

Every time this twenty year old girl felt low, every time she felt like she needed a little bit of cheering up, she went and looked at this page called ‘Sugar Daddies’ on Instagram. Not porn, nothing vulgar. Just some really fit men. Her big mistake was to share this little bit of good news…

0010 0000 0001 0101 ( 2015 )

Good and evil. North and South. Man and woman. Night and day. Zeros and ones. Black and white. True and false. Right and wrong. She liked to classify things. Divide them up, sort them out. For every selfless thing she did, there would be another act of complete self benefit. So on the new year’s eve of 2015,…

Dream and his Lady Delusion

They walked up to the counter hand-in-hand and ordered a double cheese chicken burger, two plates of fries and a beer ( for him ) and a lemonade ( for her ). Well fed girlfriends are hardly a beacon of emotional stability , and Del was on a diet. Confused what to say , he…

Who’s that girl?

Phone call #1 : “Yeah baby, I’ve reached safely. Thanks for sending your car. Miss you.” Phone call #2 : “Hey hon, yeah just got here. He had just called. He never leaves me alone. But you do know you’re all I think about. Miss you.” Phone call #3 : “I love you too. I’ve…
