When you look into the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you or just a mask, a facade that lies to everyone? Everyone including you yourself? there are very few pure souls and then there are the many complex ones. Which category do you belong to? Do you fit into any at all?
There are so many different faces that a single person can have.
The kind of person you are. The emotion that you feel reflects on your face. When you are taken over by a whirlwind of humane emotions, what do you do? When you know the answer but have no energy or the will power to act.
What do you really do?
Men all muddled,to work they struggled.
They all lost hope, to them life was a joke.
Someone had to save them, needed they a Dame.
To them she came,she wanted no fame.
She swept them with her boldness,lead them with her shrewdness.
They struggled no longer,they rather grew stronger.
They toiled under her, growth stuck like a bur.
All done and dusted,she went and rested.
They revered her, the future forgot her.
Their greed grew sore, History knew her no more.

It was full moon that night. The Moon gave out an eerie glow that cast shadows over the forest encircling the village. In these very shadows hid men who had nothing but greed in their hearts. They had been sent by the Mogul sharks looking for rich land. These men lit up the torches and set the forest on fire. The vile men ran away as the Moon looked down upon the villagers screaming. It continued casting it’s orange tinged light till the village people saved the forest and a new day was born.
Hey there Sunshines! Today, I feel so at peace with myself. You know there are times when you just feel like doing what you shouldn’t do? When you know it is really wrong and it could just cause problems for you, but you still do it? When your head screams out ” Don’t do it!!!” and you heart just nudges you saying “Maybe…it may not hurt me after all”? Ugh! I am going through this right now. The more you try to ignore it the more you find your self thinking about it. The other things take the back burner.
All that goes on in your head is “I shouldn’t do this but I should do that but I don’t want to do that I want to do this“
The best thing to do at this point of time would be to do neither. One is something you shouldn’t do and the other is obviously a chore. Do something that you love. Clean up your apartment. Read a book. Go dancing. Meet that friends you haven’t met in ages!
There are so many things that you can do. Just think about it for a second. That one second is enough for you to form a list of things, you love, in your head. Do the one right on top. Don’t stop to think if it’s feasible. Jut do it. I am writing my blog. This was the first thing that I thought about. This is my first step. You take yours too 🙂
You will thank yourself later 🙂
A rain that made the rivers flood and gush down the mountains. Mountains that no one could move but stood weak as it broke into two halves bit by bit.It called out its last in anger to the hot molten lava like heart within it. the heart sprayed its sadness and breathed its last breath into the air as the sky turned dark. Just because I cried. And I cried again seeing the sadness of the world. And I will cry again in the hope to take away the world’s misery and anguish. I will cry again. To end. The sadness.
Or do I instead wait for the peace to fall upon me.The Sun to shine bright. To see everything and think everything clearly. To fight back instead of washing away even the good along with the bad?
This is not just about the gay community out there. It is also about that woman who is beaten around by her husband. It is also about that man who is mistreated in the work space. It is about all the wrongs that go about in the world. The wrongs that we all know about but don’t react to.
What do we do? What should we do? Tell me in the comments section. I want to hear your thoughts.
I recently got into a debate with a senior of mine, about mind. It opened my mind to a different perspective. I, for the first time ever, had a glimpse of how people can relate everything to philosophy and religion and come up with different explanations about any and everything- even big bang theory.
In this same debate, I was introduced to the concept of counted breaths. According to my senor, we all come into this life with a certain number of breaths allocated to us. When the breaths are up, we all pass away.
This got me thinking and I decided to share my views with all of you :).
I believe that this concept can be looked at differently. When we get stressed, there is an adrenaline rush that makes our heart pump faster. A constant state of stress leads to short and fast breaths which some people may also refer to as breathlessness. This can cause a lot of damage to our body and mind in the long run. So in a way , counted breaths theory warns us to take slow and long breaths, to relax so that we can lead a longer and healthier life.
You should invest some of your time in meditation because it has amazing returns and long time benefits. One way to do this can be :
- In the first stage you use counting to stay focused on the breath. After the out-breath you count one, then you breathe in and out and count two, and so on up to ten, and then you start again at one.
- In the second stage you subtly shift where you breathe, counting before the in-breath, anticipating the breath that is coming, but still counting from one to ten, and then starting again at one.
- In the third stage you drop the counting and just watch the breath as it comes in and goes out.
- In the final stage the focus of concentration narrows and sharpens, so you pay attention to the subtle sensation on the tip of the nose where the breath first enters and last leaves the body.
I don’t know how true the theory of counted breaths is but I can surely say that long and slow breaths can help us heal 🙂

Blistering Burnacles! Being in a state of doubt is such a bad thing! Phew! Does that take a toll on you. I find myself loosing weight and isolating myself when I go through this phase. The reason of doubt may not even be rational or even related to you. We sit biting our nails and pondering upon the yays and nays of people around us.
I find myself standing at crossroads with tons of people walking past me and I am not just worried about myself at this point. I bring in other people’s worries and make a nice juicy mess of my life. I made such a dear friend and started on a new life. I was so happy and yet in some part of my head I believed that this friendship will not last long. Guess what? Yes. That day came sooner than expected and it hit me like a ice cold bucket of water making it hard to breathe. But I know how to struggle. I kept trying to ask him the reason but he slipped away like sand. I tried moving on but his thoughts still make me sad. I realized that in that short while he had become more than a friend. I liked him. I still like him. I am in a relationship, I love my boy friend but this small part of me that still likes my friend, does not help me. I feel like I am cheating but I can’t even confess to anyone because like dominoes everything will crumble down. I know all this will pass away and I have tried moving on. It is hard but not impossible. I made a mistake but I don’t regret it.
Though I do wish that people would not take small matters to their heart. I wish that little things don’t eat away the good things that we can build. I have made other friends but I cannot not gel as well as I could with him. But it is annoying that small things like me being busy and giving them 10 minutes less of my time hurts them to such an extent that they behave childishly. To be practical is something that we need to learn. Following our heart is important but that should not cloud our own judgement.
But it may just be me. My internal struggle has forced me to hide inside my shell like a turtle and I have started keeping my conversations with people to the bare minimum. I can hear the din outside this shell. It scares me.
But when I close my eyes everything is clear as day. I know what to do. I know I am not somebody who is defined by where I am from or what others think of me. I am who I choose to be. I don’t chose to sit back and let things go the way they are going now. I am going to come out and face this with my head held high because I know I can.
