[caption id="attachment_1034" align="aligncenter" width="232"] Love Thyself!!![/caption]   Sometimes working from home and working solo, handling personal and professional commitments can be quite overwhelming. Today was one such day. The multiple deliveries of projects, online mentoring and reviewing of students, hundreds of mundane household chores, and above all my never-ending pursuit to hit the gym. Oh, My God, today was one among the exhaustive days with lots of certainty and uncertainty. What better than a long walk accompanied by the evergreen tunes of the Legendary A.R. Rahman to beat the tiredness. A man who doesn’t need a definition. I am proud and blessed to be born in this time of the evolution where I can cherish memories of his music. (Don’t worry, I am not going to talk to about ARR).…

I watch the last scintillating rise of the glorious sun of this year, giving me infinite positive energies and sowing the words of gratitude and grit in me. And once again, here I am, writing yet another, Thank You Blog for my incredible audience who have been sailing with me in my journey of life. I owe every pie of the success and failure (vital steps of the ladder of growth) to my audience who have given me constructive feedback. I am indebted to my readers who are a passive catalyst in my life as a writer and aid me pushing my limits.

The Lost Road

[caption id="attachment_969" align="aligncenter" width="300"] The Lost Road[/caption] It’s Friday Morning and I get this text from a friend, ‘I have not seen your blog for a very long time. Neither any other activity happening on your website’, a message from one of my silent, subtle followers of my writings and work. Strange to know and realize that, there are a set of audience who wait for your work and thoughts. It has been quite a few months that I have written for myself. Umpteen number of commitments in the personal and professional end; and most of the times procrastination and liberty of zero deadlines have led to the almost death of my website. There have so many times when I wanted to write, but something or the other stopped me.…

Is there a thread that connects Age and Maturity?

Is there a thread that connects Age and Maturity?

[caption id="attachment_938" align="aligncenter" width="250"] Is there a thread that connects Age and Maturity?[/caption] ‘When he becomes older, he will act maturely’, ‘She behaves in a childish way. Hope she is matured enough to handle life’, ‘At this age, you are supposed to handle your life in a matured way’. Yes! We have all grown up listening to these clichéd conversations. Personally, I have experienced many people using such statements, in their wisdom of affection for their loved ones. Sometimes, even I tend to utter such words. Maybe consciously or unconsciously, our minds are wired to those thoughts after years of constant hearing of the same. The link between the age of a person and their behavior are to assess the maturity level of the person. Is the society, the thought…

Far Away from their Roots

Far Away from their Roots

Blog, Personal, Social
Is their life Glossy or Gloomy? A phone call which uncovered a deep wound, filled with blood stains of heart-wrenching emotions, pertaining to thousands like her. ‘A dreamy, fantasy filled, glossy life is what they believe, I live here in a foreign land’, utters with a wet eye, choking throat, with a subtle smile. Far away, little did they know, why and how, we are living a life, far away from our roots, in a foreign land, amidst the aliens? With a strange feeling and hundreds of unspoken words and emotions, the call ended abruptly, followed by text message of reconnecting, some time later. Alas! An Indian in Foreign Land. The days passed by, but the conversation lingered in my mind. There has been millions of instances, while I have…

Who says resolutions and goals don’t work after the first week of the New Year?

Blog, Personal
Who says resolutions and goals don’t work after the first week of the New Year? A few years back, when Facebook was a new member of our social life, many people posted stating, No Resolutions, No Goals; Resolutions and Goals blind’s the realities of life; ‘Resolutions are tools of placebo effect’ etc. I was uncertain about those statements. To start the year, reading such messages, undoubtedly gulps a negative attitude into the readers. That’s when I decided to prove the same to myself, drafted and implemented SMART goals and resolutions. Now I ask all my readers, who says resolutions and goals don’t work after the first week of the New Year? A New Year is like writing a new chapter of your life with your own hands. It is an…

[caption id="attachment_898" align="aligncenter" width="257"] Thank YOU Readers[/caption] A Flash Back into the Year 2016 A flash back into the year of 2016 reveals a life of potpourri of extreme of emotions. The first half of the year was filled with mundane routine, juggling between personal and professional errands. After a lot of efforts of impulsive outbursts of giving up and compromising moments, abandoning the ambience of uncomfortableness and crushing of the pulse of creativity, I quit my job. Post the decision, life blessed me with an energizing vacation to Leh-Ladak. The second half of the year, fused the stay at home syndrome, accompanied by persistent efforts to get a new job as per my criteria. However, life threw unexpected scenarios, powered by an emotionally draining experience of rejection. I reached…

This is year was a mix of both happy and sad moments. The year started with a proper romance with cold and fever for almost 20 days. As the illness left me, the month of January culminated with a sudden demise of one of aunt whom I respected a lot for her zeal towards life. Times passed and two of my close friends Shyamalee and Aishwarya got engaged on the same day. Amidst all this, was the shopping feast, for one of my school friend Sindhuja’s marriage in the month February. Her marriage was full of fun frolic…
