Fix It

The hardest promises to keep are the ones you make to yourself. You can’t blame anyone else for breaking it—if you do, you are punishing yourself twice over. Just a few months into the year, and find myself running dry of words, how am I going to keep this blog running? Since I wasn’t keen…

Look And Leap

For a really long time, I found myself in a limbo. I was nowhere close the person I planned to be when I was young. Yet, I like what I’ve become—the blood, the sweat, the tears, the bruises and wounds, I wear them with humility. It’s really easy to yearn to be something we’re not,…

A Verb Called Love

Love is a verb, a word that makes you do and feel things like no other emotion does. It is really a neatly laid bouquet of synonyms that makes you feel and do a lot of other things too.

While you will be explained that your spiritual being is always a singular unit that is above everything else, it will be drilled into your system from an early age, that you need to keep that very self, or ego aside to accommodate everyone and everything…

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee…

Wallowing in haves and have-nots is the easiest and the most convenient thing to do. The next most obvious step we take when we find ourselves in a difficult situation is start looking for a scapegoat on whom we can shoulder the blame on. When it’s about time you wake up and smell the coffee,…

The Paradox called Life

The two most essential things that most people consider to be a wholesome life is to have expectations and then fulfilment of these expectations, that too quickly, using the least possible efforts. Everybody wants another person to care about their feelings, but they are usually too caught up with themselves. That basically leaves no room…
