Dudhsagared Part -2


Dudhsagared – Part 2           It was 4.30 PM when we finally finished our photo-shoot and had enjoyed looking at the majestic waterfalls, experiencing the atmosphere to the fullest. We remembered that the return train arrives at Dudhsagar exactly at 5:15 PM. Without wasting much time, we started walking towards the station. It took us about 20 minutes to reach the station and to our surprise there were about…

What’s True & What’s Untrue?


At this wee hours… I want to share a few things. The Struggle between the truth and the false In life very often, we are caught amidst a strong vortex of “What’s true and what’s not”. Its this dilemma which causes great things unfold infront of us. The constant lies that we keep telling ourselves…. like the ones we say to ourselves whenever we see ourselves obese on the weighing…

Dudhsagared Part – 1


It was 10.28 AM by the time we reached the Castle rock railway station, we hardly had time to realize things around us, we all started running towards the platform, “Run faster ladies… faster… we got to catch the train before it leaves …” I kept shouting as we all were running from the bus parking lot to board the train which was about to depart exactly at 10.30 AM.…

Teacher’ Pet ? Is that you?


Since my childhood days, one thing which constantly used to haunt me till my teens were few kids being constantly labelled as “apple of eye” by teachers. I being a teacher’s daughter, ideally should not be feeling jealous of such kids but the inner underdog sleeping inside my head, just refuses to keep calm. One of the many problems that the non-favorites of teachers suffer are as follows: There used…

Gone Girl Posters

When I think of my wife…..


    These were some of the opening lines from the Bestseller book “The Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. For those of you who have already watched the movie and have fully understood the plot, I need not  introduce you to the dark twisted world of Amy. And for those, who have not yet read/watched the movie, I would say… go and grab the book/dvd and start exploring the world…

What I liked about Mr.MKG


It is better to be charged with cowardice and weakness than to be guilty of denial of our oath and to sin against God. It is  a million times better to appear untrue before the world than to be untrue to ourselves. What a powerful and virtuous lines by Mr. M.K.Gandhi. Well, personally just like 1 in every 10 Indians, I too used to hate Gandhi for the following reasons: Non Violence…

Kick IT….


“When life throws lemons, make lemonade out of it” Better said than done. It is easy to pat someone’s shoulder and say “Hey bud… its gonna be alright …. Life’s like that”. Its terrible when you put yourself in their shoes and experience what they are actually undergoing through. When things go wrong all you get to hear is dozens of laws and quotes and free advices from people around…

Stroke of Midnight


At the stroke of midnight I woke up from a nightmare Only to realize I have travelled several miles away from my reality Not just my skin but my surroundings are not the same as it was yesterday Everything changed, Everything gone….

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “180 Degrees.” Tell us about a time you did a 180 — changed your views on something, reversed a decision, or acted in a way you ordinarily don’t. Let me start this post with a very beautiful quote by Kahlil Gibran It is very much true in our lives. We crave for love, and we meet heartbreaking moments. We crave for happiness…

Journey to the centre of my soul


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Journey.” I was sitting on the terrace one cold night and was watching the cloudy sky….. When my mind as usual took me to a journey towards center of my heart…. When I was almost done with all the analysis of my emotions, I realized it had started raining. That was when I remembered this song. I had listened to this song…

Toggle Button of emotions


Standing on a bridge… Looking for the stars…. I reach out to you, O God for some hope in the form of light…. I breathe some fresh air and press the toggle button of emotions…. I just let them go silently….   From happiness to sadness… from love to betrayal… from revenge to forgiveness…. the emotions keep toggling from one state to another Only to end up in dead silence…..…

quotes from Gita

The Haunting Silence


At this wee hours, I wake up from my bed and start typing these words haphazardly. I had a strange dream of losing my loved ones. In my dream, I lost 2 people for no reason. I kept running behind them and they just disappeared, leaving me all alone in this weird vast world. I turned back to see,how much of emptiness it has caused in my life. I cried…

Yesterday, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were taken from Kerobokan gaol in Bali and escorted under (unnecessarily heavy) armed guard to the island of Nusakambangan where they will be executed.

You took my heart away…..


After having a bad day today I decided to find some place where I can sit lonely and stare at the sky endlessly for atleast few minutes. I suddenly remembered the song by Passenger called “Staring at sky” although I was not clear about the lyrics but the tune stuck in my mind.   There is always something magical about watching sunsets.They make you realize 2 things 1. How beautiful…

A tribute to Udit Narayan


It was a bright Saturday and I had to meet one of my friends at 3. I woke up at 12 only to realize I am not going to make it. When I called him up, he suggested me the best option was to stay at home and relax. I was so disappointed that I turned on to Fever 104FM and started continuing my household chores. Thanks to Anurag Pandey…

My friend Hamsa recently wrote a very beautiful article called as “Women- Being Powerful“ on the book “A thousand splendid suns” by Khaled Hosseini. Towards the end of the blog, she posted few questions which really stirred out the hidden “bitch” inside me. Well before answering all those questions, let me first answer what does the word bitch mean to me. If you ask any layman the meaning of bitch, he/she will jump from…

The wrath caused by human mind


The human Mind is supposed to be one of the most beautiful creations of God. It has the power to transform things around it. The Mind makes the impossible the possible. And yes what happens to the Mind when it happens to start some wild alchemy in itself. It gives birth to the invisible cloak of “Suspicions Perceptions Vice Avarice and Extreme destruction” We all have two things to think…

The top 20 books “to-read” in 2015


Countdown. Everybody loves (or at least loves to hate) a list. This is especially true around the end of the year, when our inclination to rank things and to build coherent narratives out of the chaos of loosely-related events goes into overdrive. For this week’s challenge, I invite you to breathe new life into the established genre of the end-of-year countdown list. Sure, you’re welcome to share your top-20 books, songs,…

Analysis of Consequences


Cause, Meet Effect. You can singlehandedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why? One of the most common problems, that I usually face is in handling my own anger. I am very very thankful to…

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail!!!


Tell us about the object of your dejection — something you made, a masterpiece unfinished, or some sort of project that failed to meet your expectations. What did you learn from the experience? How would you do things differently next time? They say “Failing to plan is planning to fail” The reason why I remembered about this quote was today’s daily prompt. I had a beautiful goal of blogging daily…

Vintage Letters

You mean a lot to me!!!!


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Language of Things.” You have to write a message to someone dear to you, telling that person how much he/she means to you. However — instead of words, you can only use 5-10 objects to convey your emotions. Which objects do you choose, and what do they mean? Message I want to convey: You are the creator of your destiny. Gear yourself…

Share one of your unsung heroes with us — how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar? Since childhood, we all grew up listening to the heroic stories…

Sweet Little Lies. As kids, we’re told, time and again, that lying is wrong. Do you believe that’s always true? In your book, are there any exceptions? When it first comes to this word “LIE” we all remember this guy He is the symbol of untruthfulness states WIKIPEDIA :) Coming back to the topic, I first heard this word “Sweet Little Lies” from my English Professor during my graduation.
