‘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

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? 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…

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…
