Why you should never stop reading?

More often than not, we feel and think that we should read more often. Maybe we already read. Maybe we don’t. I am writing this article for those people who used to read a lot and due to unforeseen circumstances or even foreseen circumstances have resorted to not reading. I am telling this from my…

I wish it didn’t happen

Of the many things that happen in my life, there is one thing, one very specific thing that I wish to avoid. And that is guilt. When I wake up every morning, I wake up with guilt, feeling bad about the time I woke up. Feeling bad about the targets that I have missed. Feeling…

Monday, like Funday

And with Monday groans, I have started the day. What is weird is, I usually am active on a Monday. It is not “Oh God! It’s Monday” (You can imagine me, trying to snuggle in my blanket, as the alarm is ringing), but “It’s Monday!” (Imagine me jumping with excitement shouting that) for me. But…

Wait for it…

Waiting. The one dreadful thing that happens in all our lives. We wait in traffic to reach work. Then we wait for lunch. Then we wait for the shift to get over. And another wait in the traffic to get home. About quarter of our lives, we end up spending… yes, you guessed it right,…

On Hope

I feel weightless. I can sense that I am moving, but to where? And in which direction? Left, right? Or is it up or down? If it was up, then wouldn’t I feel some force on me downwards? Or was it downwards? If it was downwards, wouldn’t I be able to feel that? How long…

Write, my child. Write

You are at a crossroads. Before you, is a man and he has gestured you to come closer to him. You can see that he is old, probably too old. He had a white flowing beard, paired with a white dress. He looked poor, but intellectual. He had a small sack, in which you can…

Day 9 – Teach Something

How great is passion? And how to chase it? This is a question that had bothered me for a while. The greater question after them is what is my passion? I used to read a lot of stories of great people. All of them had something in common. They followed their passion, even though it…

Day 8 – A list

So today’s task is to write a list. Any list. But what is a list that I could create? What list could I write? A to-do list? But what would you do with the to-do list? A wish list? I really don’t have a wish list. The one thing that I want to do in…

A letter to my younger self

Dear 16-year-old me, Hey. It’s me. 20-year-old you. It is going to be a little odd, me writing to you, but bear with me, as I have something I want to tell you. You might not like the way I am going to break the news to you, but you need to be strong.  …

Day 6 : A page in the diary of – Guess whose?

It’s nearly 4pm and no one has yet come in. I have been waiting since morning. It is not just today, but many more before that. I like talking. I like having interesting people walk in every day. I have worlds that I want to show people. When they visit me, I’ll have a nice…

Day 5 : A page in the diary of – Guess whose?

And as my energy rises to the peak, I stand straight, with my head held high, facing the sun, shining bright, to make myself visible for him. It was a proud moment for me. I was completely charged for the day and I will take my rest at night again. Only if he doesn’t drain…

Day 4 : A page from the diary of – Guess whose?

“Pick me, pick me” I secretly hoped as he walked by us. I would do many things for you and help you too. But would he pick me? No, never. He left me long time ago. He spent many years imagining how his life would be, for the first time he held me. For the…
