Words of Gratitude and Grit – A Million Questions

Words of Gratitude and Grit – A Million Questions

Blog, Personal, Relationship
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

The Lost Road

Blog, Personal
[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.…

The Magic Box

The Magic Box

Blog, Science & Tech
Twenty years before could you have imagined, that, you could have a small box which would rule and ruin your life? A small tool, which can show the tremendous magic of technology and offer a luxurious and comfortable life. A power packed commodity on which our complete life is dependent upon. A reliable and affordable product connecting the threads of life. Yes! I am talking about the greatest invention of mankind, Mobile Phones. The Magic Box of all our lives. The joy of possessing the first mobile phone is an amazing and unexplainable emotion. Recently, in a bus stop, I purposefully counted the number of people, glued to the mobile phones, not realizing and feeling the world around them. Probably more than three fourth of the crowd was in their…

Do you Eat to Live or Live to Eat?

Do you Eat to Live or Live to Eat?

Blog, Food
[caption id="attachment_944" align="aligncenter" width="300"] http://www.zoozoo2.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/updated-livetolove-poster.jpg[/caption] A family member recently commented on my increase in the body weight. My instant reply was, ‘Hum Khathe Peethae Ghar Ke Hain (We come from a lavish eating family). Maybe which is why you feel so’. The prolonged silence was broken, after the continuous taunts, on my gain of weight from different facets of the society. Despite the fact, that the intention was to bring in a sense of humor, it turned out to be otherwise. Nevertheless, conversations changed, thoughts changed and the setting changed. I wonder, why do we keep assessing and commenting on someone’s physical appearance. There were few instances in life, when people have questioned, whether I eat to live or live to eat. While I knew the actual answer from my…

Is there a thread that connects Age and Maturity?

Is there a thread that connects Age and Maturity?

Blog, Parenting, Personal, Relationship
[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…

The Bumps, the Potholes, and much more…

Blog, Civic
‘I was there to protect you, when speed thrilled you’, utters the inner silent voice of a speed breaker. ‘I was malnourished in my formative stages, so it’s not my mistake’, the potholes of the India Road roar tearfully. The Indian Roads have always been under the scanner of the public. The government of India relentlessly puts forth an erroneous strategy of road development of the roads and ends up having dissatisfied and unhappy citizens. The Indian roads, filled with bumps and potholes disrupting the smooth travel experience for the commuters are the most cursed aspect of Indian civic society. Rupturing the civic society, the tale of Indian Roads is far beyond the bumps and the potholes. Many Economists state that a flawless infrastructure development strategy of Roads of a…

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…

Being Blind… What are you blinded by?

Being Blind… What are you blinded by?

Blog, Social
Being Blind… What are you blinded by? A group of people knotted to each other for being blind. A small stick of its own kind assures the presence of their group and the conformity of the path. A regular scene experienced while crossing the roads near my house, questioned the inner inquisitive mind. An unparalleled conversation with those blinded people, who are suffering for no fault of theirs. A result of birth, accident, sexual harassment, etc., were some of their reasons of blindness. However, their vision of the inner self is far beyond the challenges of biological defect. Ignorance, neglect, fear, helplessness, distrust, uncertainty, weakness, etc., were some of the emotions common to all of them. Having said that, they were all happy and peaceful in their own world, sharing…
