Welcome to the hedonic treadmill

Perhaps, if asked, what would you say about scoring happiness as of now on a scale of 10.

I answered 7/10 and asked a few references to spill their point of view on this. Surprisingly, the constant answer kept coming as 7. It differs for some. …


Can you embarrass yourself today?

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…


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?

Busyness is an addiction

Busyness is addiction

I do nothing daily. It is my meditation.
