Everything Changed as I Began to Change My Sleep Cycle The First Rays of the Sun Yes! On most of the Sunday’s, I get up as early as 3.00 AM to go to my Temple for my weekly prayer.

Just like school children, the moment clock strikes 7.10 AM, he is out on the road with his laptop bag and lunch box. His early schedule has made me…

What I Consume Matters, but What I like also Matters… Vegetable Street Market ‘Would you like to eat an apple?’ ‘Some grapes, maybe?’ ‘Do you like to have an orange?’ And the answer was always a silence with a subtle smile or no.

Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure This morning when I was in the lift, witnessed a parent thrashing her little one for the marks she had scored. This took me to my school days.

An age when I dint even know how to pronounce this word, Atychiphobia – The Fear of Failure got deeply rooted into my system. From what I remember, it was during my 9th grade when I failed for the first time in Math subject. It was the first time I ever failed in any subject. Failure is Needed All exams over and we were back to school after the holidays. It was the day…

Born in the ’80s, most people around me, tell me that ‘I am an Old Soul’ and should have born in the 60’s era. That, I haven’t yet embraced the millennial generation.
