Let go.

There are people who enter your lives for a reason, perhaps to teach you an important lesson? They consume your time, your energy, your positivity, then suddenly leave you bereft of it all. You begin to wonder, what went wrong – what is it that you had said or done that has led to this, and try all that you can to figure out, to set the equation back alright, 

Only to go through doom all over again.

Let go. Let go of them. Happily. ‘Cause no one is indispensable. No one is important enough for you to lose your sanity over. Let the efforts be mutual. Only then does it become an equation. 

Whatever it takes…

Let’s stick on to each other,

Like ink on a piece of paper,

Irrevocable, undetachable,

Let’s live in a fable, let’s live without a label πŸ’–

On a loop…

I go on a loop, with a clam, 

Seeking reality amidst all the sham,

In the mission to figure out who I am, 

Only to discover bliss in the mayhem!

A good turn, my way :)

Yesterday, my friend and I got into a share-auto on our way back home from work. Soon afterward, the heavy downpour started and as the auto sped off we were worried about how we’d reach home on time. Since we were the last 2 passengers in the rickshaw, the driver said he’d better head straight home, when he asked him if he could drive us to our destination (we had to take another bus to reach home). Fair enough. But then, as we reached our stop, the downpour became heavier making it impossible for people to walk on the streets without an umbrella or a jerkin – and we had neither. The auto rickshaw driver sensing that offered to drive us to the bus stop (for which he had to take a left from the junction where we had planned to get down and drive a few metres, whilst he had planned to go straight) and we gratefully agreed.

But he didn’t just drop us off at the bus stand and leave yesterday. He was kind enough to let us wait in the auto rickshaw until the bus came (10 minutes later), he ensured both of us got in safely and then left the place. 
That was one good turn our way yesterday. God bless him in abundance ✨😊

Why?

Why meddle when you’re unsure,

Why meddle if it wouldn’t find you, your cure,

Just play along,

For He knows what is right and what is wrong,

Why meddle and spoil the fun,

When you can focus just on what you want to get done?

Les petites joies de la vie πŸ’–

First day of the week and I’m drenched from head to toe as I return home, and, I’m famished. The dark clouds always definitely are an indication of something good, but getting drenched in the rain is definitely not my cup of tea. I splatter water all around in the house as I make my way towards my room, when an astonishingly familiar aroma hits me. An astonishingly familiar, yet mouth-wateringly delicious aroma. Patience not withstanding, I ask my mom what she’s cooking and she replies, albeit with a bit of hesitation “Rava Kichdi” 
Though I’m more than willing to gulp down anything she gives me, I mock-gag at the name and sneak into my room.
Minutes later, I get to gobble platefuls of hot piping Kichdi generously lathered with the best sambhar on earth. 
This, without a doubt, is the BEST meal I’ve ever had, until date. 

I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world. Anything.
Each has his own favorite rain-food. Masala chai. Moong Dal Ke Pakode. Bhajiyas. This, has to be mine. πŸ’–
Cheers!✨

Hang in there :)

Each of us has a story,

To be sung out loud in all its glory,

A story to be proud of, 

A story that you wouldn’t wanna morph,

So hang in there a bit more,

Even if things turn a little too sour,

‘Cause, relieved you’d be only if there were,

Experiences and nuances you get to share!
