The Path to Silence

    “Let silence take you to the core of life.” The practice of being here and now without any inner noise is Silence. We might come across different definitions and ideas regarding this concept but it’s essence is very basic. It is simple. No mental tremors, no pressure, no fluctuations. Just being.  Just breathing. We…

Dear Anxiety, please leave.

  1 in every 13 people suffer from Anxiety disorders. 60.05 million people suffer from anxiety disorders in the South-East Asian region. If this is not troublesome to know, I don’t know what is. I have been friends with anxiety since childhood. Specifically my early school years were full of lengthy conversations with intense fear,…

No : The Necessary Refusal

Growing up I was a shy and very quiet kid.  Moreover, I could never utter a word of refusal to anybody..my classmates, cousins, friends, even bullies! This behavior was perfectly normal for me as I was so uncomfortable saying ‘No’. Now I look back and feel abnormal about those days when I could never respond…

क्षमा – Forgiveness

    “To be free from all elements of prejudice and self-obsession.” – Unknown. In life, this is one of the most difficult parts to act upon mentally. To forgive. To let it go from the depths of our hearts. To shine in our own light and not burn in flames of hatred. We all…

Such a relationship can be with a dominating friend, bossy sibling, abusive partner..anybody!! And it is crazy to bear with them. The longer we are entangled in…

(Old age) Home

  Sitting with my parents and exploring shades of life through our talks is as enriching an experience for me as traveling or meditating is. Parents are Home. A home with a learning everyday. Every time I start talking about them, I get teary eyed. Anybody would be. After all they are the institution we have…

Black and White

  I read somewhere ‘Absorb what is useful, discard what is not.’ and this thought never left me. This helps me every moment, everyday. So to start with, black and white are two aspects of life. There will be joy and jolt, rainy and sunny days, depression and laughter. All these travel along with each other. Black…

Trapped

DAY 1 She jumps with joy, his sight takes her to the sky. The beauty of his laughter, the spirit in his eyes, in those arms her world lies. Her companion in right and wrong, knows her favorite color, food and song. Best companions and partners in crime, they fell in love in no time….
