Rediscovering Writing

I no longer fight against my wishes. I just do as per my calling. I realized that if I just do the things that make me happy every moment, that itself would be enough to make my entire life happy.

International Women’s Day Thoughts

Days like the International Women’s Day (IWD), Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, attract some kind of criticism every year. Nevertheless, the Days continue to get observed. I have noticed that the general concept of IWD is that, people must focus on something serious like women empowerment, conference on women entrepreneurship and so on. Is it necessary? We can discuss such things...

Home

Home – There is more to this word than meets the eye. The general concept of home is the house you grew up in. Then you move to another place for studies or for work. The place you reside there becomes your new home. For me, the word home means more than just a place of residence. It is a...

My Religion

Did it ever happen to you that an event really annoyed you and you looked up and asked, “Why me?” Even while asking that, deep inside there is a whisper that tells you the correct answer to that “why”.

Chores

I was about to make a “to do” list for today. I have so much to do for my websites, magazines, household chores and so on…. I thought of doing the chores first so that I can focus on my real work (read: websites, magazines) more. Then this realization struck hard. The first to do in the chores list was...

Religious Guilt or OCD

Every day is different and that’s how it should be, at least I think so. That way we will always be excited to live every new day anticipating the new! But in reality, this is not the case and we human beings are responsible for that. In our quest to live a safe and organised life, we make routines for...
