Mundane, but that’s Life 🙆‍♀️

Where does one gowhen one loses the only ‘go to’ they have? In a shocking and upsetting development,I lost my will to read yesterday. Too overwhelmed by words, Inundated by a deluge of thoughts and expressions,I didn’t know what to turn to. Reading had always been my escape from reality. My Catharsis.My Solace.My Consolation.My Deliverance.Continue reading “Mundane, but that’s Life 🙆‍♀️”

Almosts…

How many times have you asked me-‘Almost there’, where!! How many times have you read my inkwith this rhetorical question in your tone!! How many times have you implied that I deserve better…Better than you… What you don’t understand is that I don’t need Perfect.I need you. With all your flaws, with all the shortcomings,WithContinue reading “Almosts…”

❤️A Free Verse❤️

‘I wish we could love in moderation’, Said her best friend. She was reminded of her sister’s wordsFrom a few months ago.‘If only you could hate that one lessAnd love this one with boundaries, You would be happy.’ It wasn’t in her to dilute her emotions.The love, the hate, the compassion, the fearEverything ate atContinue reading “❤️A Free Verse❤️”

Home🏡

Every evening I sit and observePeople getting back from work,Cars and bikes rushingTo the safety of their premises.Like birds returning to their nestsAfter exploring fresh spaces. Big or small,Designed or regular, Full or empty,There is nothing that beckons us more.Safety, contentment & a sense of belongingSome find it in a place, some in a personContinue reading “Home🏡”

Of Indifference & Love❤️

In a quest to get to the bottom of the indifference I, so frequently, see in people these days, I went back some years on the Facebook timelines of some of my more perplexing friends. I was so heartened to find normal college lives, camaraderie with friends, venting of emotions without hesitation, in some cases,Continue reading “Of Indifference & Love❤️”

Of Music & Life🎹🎶

This morning I was listening to an audio book ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama. Not only is the book absorbing, but her narration is spell- binding too. In one of her anecdotal episodes, she recounts how she learnt to play the piano from her Aunt. She tells us a little something about pianos. On her veryContinue reading “Of Music & Life🎹🎶”

⚖️Striking the Balance⚖️

We learn everyday. We learn from nearly everyone and everything around us. We are not the same person as we were yesterday. We won’t be the same as we are today. Life has a sharp learning curve.It is not always kind. Nothing ever goes away without teaching us what it was created to & metContinue reading “⚖️Striking the Balance⚖️”

😌Solace😌

An unmarried friend of mine used to extol the virtues of spinsterhood all the time, saying that she would never miss something she hadn’t experienced when told that she would miss the company of a partner in her old age. I agreed with her wholeheartedly. I remember telling my father about yet another unmarried friendContinue reading “😌Solace😌”

🥰On Connections🥰

Human relationships are so weird. Rarely, are people satisfied with their lot in life. We have a mental checklist of what would appeal to us and what will fulfill us. More often than not, we don’t actually find what we are looking for, in a friend or a partner. And sometimes, just sometimes, it allContinue reading “🥰On Connections🥰”

To be or not to be… FREE

I went to watch Kabir Singh a couple of days back and since then I have been itching to write this but have been apprehensive. I am a non-confrontational person and I know, I would have to answer my fair share of questions after I put my thoughts in writing. What gave me courage toContinue reading “To be or not to be… FREE”

🦸‍♀️All in a day’s work 👨‍⚕️

Life has been good. God has been kind! True, there are ups and downs in any life. One may be the tiniest of insects and face challenges or the king of the jungle and yet life may not be smooth. We, as humans, have more faculty to deal with problems that come our way becauseContinue reading “🦸‍♀️All in a day’s work 👨‍⚕️”

❤️Rebels, Misfits & Shattered Souls❤️

My mother always says that the character of an individual can be gauged only when you live with them as truly as purity of gold can be measured only on testing it.. “सोने के kasne से और इंसान के basne से पता चलता है…” True, may be! But energies don’t work that way. There isContinue reading “❤️Rebels, Misfits & Shattered Souls❤️”

Chaos.. And the Calm!

Chaos! Chaos! Chaos! We hear the word and a visual, a mental image comes up! Something that is helter-skelter, without a set pattern, disorganised, broken, shattered, full of din, mayhem.. Almost violent! That has been my state of mind, more or less, since I last took to writing. So many things have happened. I haveContinue reading “Chaos.. And the Calm!”

💫Trusting Energies!💫

Energy doesn’t lie.. I have waited for a week or so, since this realisation hit, to write it all down. I am not an expert on this branch of thinking, I just write what I experience so my account may not be statistically correct. It is at best a point of view, not a pointContinue reading “💫Trusting Energies!💫”
