Writers can change the world for their word knows no boundary.

We love writing. Don’t we?

Our very core wonders. We observe others and ourselves. Do we also wonder why we write?

Yes, I do. We all do. I wonder why we write. What brings me back to a pen, paper, and keyboard to put down my thoughts or observations or just to let it all out and express?

Sometimes it flows, while sometimes it may not. The urge to pen down a thought even if the mind resists is what makes me wonder. At times, the world around me tends to fall and crumble, but not my desire to write.

Busyness is addiction

I do nothing daily. It is my meditation.

Doing nothing is something I crave. A go-to vaccine when it seems everything is slipping away is to sit around doing nothing.

It seems contradictory. Right? Do, and nothing do not go hand in hand. If there is a doing, then how can it be nothing?

What I intend to tell is- It is nothing that I do.

I lay dead in my bed motionless. No movement, no thinking. …

It’s not shitty writing. It’s not writing.

“Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river.”

― Lisa See

Writing is an enigma, sort of, yes. The daily grind comes at a price you chose to pay. I believe things are overcomplicated and glamourized when it comes to putting words on paper.

Writing is neither complicated nor needs romanticizing.

You see all sorts of advice pouring in from each quarter on how to get better and master the craft.

There are invariably more pieces written about “how to write” than the actual writing itself.

The thing is, we love to read and create a…

Life is frittered away with details — hence, simplify.

These are testing times. You’ve got so much on your plate to consume, coz, hey, you need to impress people about stuff you have, your lifestyle, and that costly lobster you ate.

We live under constant scrutiny and prying eyes of loved ones and strangers who we try to impress for validation. Life is a chaotic mess waiting to explode.

“Waiting for the weekend” describes life now. As if the weekend’s going to straighten out your life. Since when it became about living for two days while dreading the entire week and making it through, just making it.

The majority…

The other day, I watched a TV interview of an actress who claimed she knew she would become an actor growing up. It seems she knew the answers to all the bizarre questions that can help her find a true calling in life.

Wow, I thought, because I suffer indecision deciding what to eat, and she had it all figured out.

The thing is- every decision she made thereon had a specific reason and purpose. Where to study, what to do, and where to live and connect? The entire thing planned to last mile.

She reached where she intended to…

The word gets thrown around loosely as we struggle to find a mid-word that may describe the relationship other than referring to someone as a friend. So, the word friend comes to the rescue.

Notwithstanding the actual discussion, even the word comes to the rescue in times of need.

We all have friends, and then we have-“the friends.”

What is the difference between a true friend and some acquaintance?

Behavioural scientists describe close friendship as a relationship that involves a long-lasting bond of sacrifice and moments. …

Life is a pointless affair, you declare with despair

Hey You,

Yes, we understand how pointless everything seems right now because of the monotony of life. The daily slog and effort is your way to fight another day and stay afloat on this ride called life. Life has its way of humbling you, for one day you might feel on top, and the other day you feel lost. The daily grind wears you down till you slide into your bed, waiting for the mornings to rise. Is it all worth the effort, you begin to wonder, and does it all seem so pointless?

We understand, and we see you…

The year you waited for is here. Now?

Do you remember the euphoria you felt on 31st Dec 2019 to welcome 2020 with your full might?

Here came 2020 and dashed hopes of one and all alike. Had I or anyone would have known what’s in store, we would have slept through the celebrations on new year’s eve.

After all, why waste the energy and wake through the night to walk into a disaster celebrated last night.

Midway through the year, I had this trivial thought of how I wasted money on the celebrations to welcome a new year.

I said, and I quote- so much money and…

The marketers have played their cards right. They have created needs and desires for us.

I want to know what’s about to happen tomorrow, next month, or maybe the next few moments.

At least, I think I do, but then the thought strikes me. What if there is a disaster waiting to happen that’s uncontrollable or a catastrophe I wouldn’t want to see?

The thing is, there are things that we think we need but don’t. It may be a perfect body, partner, or just about anything that seems to be better than the existing one.

Our life is one endless cycle of acquisitions and purchases. Anything within our reach and easily acquirable is for…

Anything pushed down forcibly has to go through barriers created by the human mind.

Changing self is the least of our concerns. Instead, what bothers us is making someone else change. Here’s the thing- No, you can not change people. That’s how it is.

It’s a desired two-way victory of sorts:

  • You can enforce a belief dear to you.
  • Your limited ego takes a pat on the back for doing something.

We are surrounded by people all the time, and we are always obliged or adamant about changing someone we think has gone haywire with life.

Our relationship with a few depends totally on mutual understandings and common goals. …
