Happy Diwali! ❤

A very happy Diwali to all of you out there. May this Diwali bring lots of happiness, success, peace and prosperity.

And I take this opportunity to present to you a YouTube video where I talk about Superstitions and the need to follow your heart, and pursue your passion. Do check it out and lemme know what you think, because, it’s absolutely relatable to all of us and it’s something each of us have gone through

P.S. I’m a bit worked up and my pace is too fast. There’s noise in the background too. But don’t give up on me yet, will you?

Love

Pursue your passion 💖

Our society, I believe, has its own twisted definition for Darwin’s “Survival of the fittest”,

For it clearly reminds us time and again, about how it wants to be impressed –
“He owns a two-storey apartment, he drives to office in his own car,

He’s been to the U.S. twice, oh my God, he is such a star!”
“She works at Xyz. Everyone’s so proud of her –

See how the world will look up to you if become an engineer.”
We’re expected to be, even if we ain’t cut out to be, where the rest of the world is,

We’re expected to fit ourselves in, into the society’s definition of success and bliss,
We’re forced to run a race we don’t even intend to be a part of,

We run it, but, because we’ve grown to fear becoming a failure, we’ve grown to fear being written off,
So we begin to bury our insecurities deep within and without a clue –

We send our dreams back to sleep, we begin to chase what we are asked to –
But every time we pause, gasp for breath, and look out for that fresh whiff of air, we figure –
Our passion, we realise, is what we univocally turn towards, for solace amidst all the chaos, for clarity amidst all the blur.

Conversations that matter.

“Scared?”

“Erm…No, but I’m nervous. What if things turn haggard?”

“Chill. It’ll be a smooth sail.”

“I might fall. I might fail. 

I wanna have a ball, but I know I am too frail”.

“You are meant to reach the stars. 

Begin to look, beyond your scars.”

“You haven’t given up on me yet?”

“Never have. Never will. You’ll always have my back. For you, are my best bet.”

Break the shackles…

You ain’t meant to be, in a cage, confined,

You ain’t meant to be, by boundaries, defined,

With your attitude, slay, with your confidence, stun,

Brace yourself for everything under the sun,

Break all barriers, set your soul free,

Be as wild as you’d want to be,

Flap your wings for you are meant to fly,

And you wouldn’t know what you can do, until you try!

Create…

An idea, A thought,

A poem, A plot,

A picture, A painting,

A song you might want to sing,

Sober or slick,

Well thought out, or just candid and quick,

Create, something new,

Create, something out of the blue,

Create, something that stays to your heart true,

Create something, that speaks for you!

​The Transformation. 💝

“That’s a nice house. But isn’t it a bit too small?
Would it be able to fit in you all?”

“No, but this would, literally, bring us together,

Get us to see a lot more of each other, 

Teach us to adjust and accommodate,

Make us spend a lot more time every day than just on an ear-marked date,

Above everything else, I hope the smaller space, between us, helps reduce the distance,

And turn this house into a home in every real sense!”

Cheers ✨

Celebrate “You”!

‘Tis sometimes good, to let your hair down,

To laugh out loud and forget to frown,

To indulge yourself, to make you, your first priority,

To enjoy your happiness, and shed that anxiety,

To live a little for yourself, just how you’d want to,

To be haywire, awry and askew,

To take time off and find your zen,

Because if you wouldn’t, who would, then?
