365/9 – This food definitely works wonders during depression


Helplessness: that dull, sick feeling of not being the one at the reins. When did you last feel like that –- and what did you do about it?

I feel like that everytime when I see an ice cream parlor near me. The moment I see an ice cream parlor, i feel I am depressed and I need to eat Ice Creams now. The feeling of helplessness/ not being in control are all just reasons to grab that big tub of Chocolate Ice Cream, because sometimes all you have to do is….

365/8 – My All Time Favorite


What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.

Well the answer undisputably remains the one and only SRK.

I think I have spent 99% of the time of my life, in thoughts of him. His songs are all over my phone and his quotes are all over my mind. What’s more… he is all over my heart.

365/7 – A Roundup of the year spent in Reading Books and Blogging


Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?

Since many days I was longing to write this 2015 Roundup article and yet I was so busy in my work that I almost kept finishing all the other drafted blog posts except this one. Its already 18 days past New Year and today I am writing the 2015 Roundup article.

Last year, I started off with big lofty ambitions and ended up completing less than 15% of what I had actually pledged.

Some of the prominent ones being

  1. Completion of 100 Books in a year
  2. Completion of writing 200 Blog Posts
  3. Purchasing a Camera
  4. Reviewing all the 100 books

To my luck, all the 4 went utter flop. Prolonged Illness coupled with my recovery period totally took toll on my reading and blogging hours. But, there is always Next Time… isn’t it. I am happy for the fact that, inspite of all the challenges posed by life on me, I still managed to complete 16 Books yesterday which is good thing because in 2014 I could read just 12.

Books Read

Coming back to Blogging, I could finish off some 70 Blog Posts last year and which is a bad number as compared to my 2014’s record which stands at 119.

Apart from all this, I spend some awesome time with my friends during my short film shooting. It is due for release this 2016 and I am also happy for the fact that I got rid of some emotional vampires out of my life. But life is always unpredictable, right when everything is settling down, it sends a lil storm for sure, just to make sure you are NO GODWOMAN to escape from the troubled waters of life.

There were major ups and downs, sprinkled with lot of tears and mayhem but right now as I am sitting and writing all this… I feel whatever happened, happened for a good cause. Most importantly I learnt few things last year:

  1. Having big goals are always helpful. Because, if you miss the stars atleast you will land on moon
  2. Never expect all your plans to go the way you had sketched them. Life is highly unpredictable.
  3. Be prepared for challenges. They come when you least expect them to arrive.
  4. No matter what people say, trust and believe in yourself. You are born to shine.
  5. No dream is too big. Its all in your head. Because when me and my friend both started KTM Page we were really clueless. Today, after a year, the page is still going viral and we are both amazed at how our hardwork has finally paid off. The same applies for my BEING YOURSELF page too. I never thought, people would come to the page and support my message. 
  6. Never ever believe what others say to you. You are what you think of yourself. I think I am a writer and today I am proudly declaring myself one. You call yourself stupid, you remain stupid in your eyes forever. Its all in your thoughts.
  7. Its okay to be a failure for big things shall arrive. If not now, atleast after few days. God’s delays are not God’s denials.

This year, hopefully, I believe in completing few more books, and blogging few more posts. All in the name of Passion. Because that defines me perfectly. I am passionate and it is this passion which keeps me going amidst all the chaos in my life.

365 Days Writing Prompts #5 – Stroke Of The Midnight


702830_10206491197896173_1005401600_n

This year, right after the stroke of Midnight, there were no wishes awaiting for me except for few of my close friends asking me to come and party. For which, as usual I had a huge NO Board in my hand.

But as I was busy denying all the party requests, somewhere in the deep abyss of my heart, I felt I should let go of all those NO Syndrome and start something new. Hence I thought of changing my mind, the very stroke of midnight and next morning, went to Nandi Hills with my friend Kishore.

It was a breath taking experience for me… the chilly weather, the mountains covered in thick clouds and above all, your bestie clicking photos of you. ha ha What more do you want. It was my first time, visiting Nandi Hills and I enjoyed it so much that, I had to reluctantly take the road to Bangalore after some 3 hours of loitering around the Nandi Hills. We were glad to take some of these pictures and had a very peaceful time.
