Motherhood from a different perspective

The foundation of motherhood is laid in the adolescent age of a girl when she has her menses for the first time. Initially accepting the fact that this will be there throughout her life is very difficult to digest..She feels its a curse on womanhood and eventually accepts it. One fine day she gets pregnant.

Out of coverage area..

How many of you believe in telepathy? There was a time I did not believe in it too..However, there were some sentimental moments when I was proved wrong. Lying on the bed with heart full of intense emotions for some loved one, I used to express my emotions before I slept. When I badly missed [...]

Loosen happiness boundaries

'Life & happiness' has always been my favorite topic to think and talk all the time. Pursuit of happiness is a continuous process which leaves us with infinite revelations. I would like to share a recent thing that enlightened me when my life took one of the worst roller coaster rides. We always have set [...]

I walked away..

Yes..I walked away. No...I wasn't a coward. I walked away when I became strong.. realizing they aren't worth my time and energy. I fought the battles, I also won them. I put together all my strength for the good and the truth but there I lost, for the evil doesn't value either. So today, I [...]

The breeze at dawn

The silence spread over me like the dark night engulfing my soul. The storm of my feelings was showing its tantrums. The high tide of my emotions dashed on some pieces of my heart turned into rocks. The chaos of the tornado of grief deafened my ears. The clouds of gloom over my eyes soon [...]

The other side of tearless eyes

Once upon a time I was very proud of being an emotional person. I considered emotions to be the only sign of liveliness. On the other hand I always saw practicality as heartlessness. As I saw more life, I realized that emotions have invited numerous scars on my heart. When I cherished extreme pleasure I [...]

Self realization

Once upon a time I struggled to understand my potential. Neither had I thought of utilizing my potential nor had I thought to expand its horizons and test its limits. I did not realize who I was and what I was capable of doing... Till ...I started thinking about it. There I began, the journey [...]

Eternal happiness – a mind trick

Eternal happiness is difficult to realize as happy moments don't last long. Perhaps, that is the reason why some of us feel that eternal happiness is a myth. But this holds true if we think of happiness on a shorter span of time. Nothing lasts long and how can happy moments be an exception to [...]

The enormous wave of bliss, confidence and strength spread [...]

We are humans too!

"Be a man!"(Oh! So being a woman is something shameful right?😣).. "The cave man was a hunter and gatherer.." (So it seems women did not exist that time!Or were women cave wives that time and could not hunt or gather food ??🤣) Wait! I am sure you must have wondered why am I quoting such [...]

Change begins with us

I loved to control the situations around me. I tried my best to change them. But I failed..Do you know why? I did not know that if we need to change the world the change begins from us!!!! That was the turning point in my life when I began to introspect why I failed. The [...]

It’s not my birthday its my rebirth!!

It's my birthday today! I realize I am 27 now! I am neither happy that I am one year older nor I am happy for spending 27 long years of my life. I am happy because I have grown by more number of years just in a single year. I have seen more of life! [...]

Fight with the night

The night spread out like a demon waiting for his prey, intimidating, frightening and filling up every corner of my heart with fear. Asking me to fight or flee in the pitch darkness at my every step. The ghosts of nightmares attacking me and then the time to slow it down. I lie on the [...]

Treasuring someone

Too many facets😏

Human being is so complex! So many faces and so many dimensions! When we get to know a person we hardly know a face or two of this incredible complex being. As we proceed in our life, we take a look from different perspectives and get to see different faces from new dimensions. That's where [...]

The uncontrollable force within

I have heard many saying .."I wanted to do it but the situations suppressed me..people around me were not supportive..I did not get a conducive environment for my growth.." Nah..I don't agree with them. Strong emotions of love for someone or something intensified with dedication and commitment...nothing stops them from growing. Nothing stops them from [...]

Setting the wrong right

We end up with wrong people, wrong career paths, and wrong decisions. What decides your future is not your wrong, but the ability to rise after you fall and set the wrong right. That's the time when you have to mould yourself, make yourself more flexible to adjust to fit where you exist and flow [...]

A ride in life

I was very upset and disappointed. I was not able to sleep for a long time. I tried to close my eyes again. Now I was sitting in a car and I turned the key to start my car. Suddenly, the darkness vanished and I felt myself driving the car on a smooth road through [...]

When moving on is difficult..

Emotions are like a flowing river. When the time flows they get replaced. The emotions become memories frozen and get locked behind. The time flows and these memories are never lost. They never lose their place. These impressions created by time can never be washed away. But the ties flash in the form of tears [...]

My genuineness…they thought was a mask

I was taught to be genuine.. I was taught to be honest...I was taught not to wear a mask. As I grew up my eyes got baffled with the constant color changes of the masks around. I stepped ahead to feel and love the faces I saw and the images that were behind the beautiful [...]

Befriending the situations

I was a person who always wanted complete control over the situations in my life. When they went out of my hands, I felt insecure and anxious. As time passed, I realized that the rigidity we have in our nature and behavior stops us from adapting with the situations. If we show our resistance to [...]

Don’t LET!

Are you hurt? Are you sad? Who was the one who made you feel so bad? Did anyone insult you? Did anyone embarrass you? Yes??? Now I will ask you.. why even did you allow someone to do so? Baffled??? I believe no one can hurt you without your own permission. Neither can one cheat [...]

That sensitive part of us!

The dynamics in human relationships is dependent on that hidden thing in our hearts. The person who is capable of maneuvering that sensitive part of us emerges powerful!

Home, should it be a place?

Home is not a place where you stay. Home is a place where you are free. It is the place where you do not require poise, you can be spontaneous. Nobody stops you from crying here. Ino worries if you show up the craziest face. It is the place where your emotions seek shelter. It [...]

Feel grateful..or else the worst times in life will teach you..

Setbacks in life best teach you the value of happiness. When the whole world is constantly finding rational and spiritual ways to pursuit of happiness; I feel intense grief can only be the easiest way to teach this art of achievement of eternal bliss. When life takes you through the most unexpected and inadvertent twists [...]

Need for human empowerment

Women's day was celebrated with a great zeal and enthusiasm. Everywhere every person talked about women empowerment. Men conveyed their best wishes to women on that day. But I have a few questions to raise. I feel we all need to think about it in a different way. Women made themselves feel and look special [...]

Struggle

When a seedling sprouts, it has to emerge from the heavy soil growing upward. It has to use all its strength to let it survive in the intense sun and sometimes in paucity water. This is struggle, survival and success. No one in this world can ever escape struggle. The person who doesn't struggle becomes [...]

Could lowering of puberty age be the reason?

"Even I have a girlfriend," said a ten-year-old kid. I was surprised. There was a time when having a boyfriend or a girlfriend was a status symbol during our junior college days. Things have changed now! It's a status symbol for kids too! Not just that, but we also hear cases of a kid trying [...]

Words vs silence

Distance created by words is more painful than what silence can create. It pricks, it hurts it wets the eyes with tears. Silence can atleast leave a hope but words kill the flame of hope that silence can leave in a hopeful heart. There is always a chance that silence can end with words. Words [...]

For the baby only..

Girls are so irritating in those four days of the month, right? So insane and so intolerable! It's not them. It's their body and their hormones.

Mirror mirror on the wall!

She is tired. She hasn't slept last night. She has those puffy eyes that clearly indicate that even the tears left her eyes all alone. She has those dark circles and even the glow of her face is not willing to come back. The first thing that she would have thought is to wear a good [...]

Liberate men!

Hey boys, Do you remember when was that day when you were in tears and your eyes puffy? Maybe one day in your childhood when somebody must have said, "Don't cry like a girl". It’s good to be strong and not cry. However if a guy feels like crying and weeping, it’s not a crime. [...]

Lost love for brown

Traditional Indian people talk about "feeling proud of Indian culture....cherishing Indian culture...". I feel like asking them a question. "Are you proud of Indian skin colors?" I'm pretty sure that most of them won't be. They will prefer fairer brides for their sons and will definitely underestimate the beauty of darker skin shades. Oh! I [...]
