I

The blood in my veins rushes to its maximum speed, correlating with the beats per minute of my heart, sending signals to my brain that I am highly excited at this moment.

Wait, isn’t the above sentence wrong?

Is it ‘I’ who is excited or is it my body? Continue reading “I”

Hope

Twenty four years is a long time. One doesn’t get born and grow up to be twenty four years old. It takes five stable governments in India, five five year plans, five green revolutions, two hundred and sixty four months. Just think of how much and what could happen during that time. So many people die before getting to that age. So many people fall in and out of love and stop trusting in the magic of love before they get that old. College gets over, even university in some cases, people start to work and fall into a routine that will eat up thirty four precious years of their lives. Continue reading “Hope”

Whispers

Of late, I am highly fascinated about the origin of whispers. Whispering is, without doubt, the most unnoticed gesture in the human communication.

Whispers sometimes are agreement and at other times disapproval.

Sometimes, whispers carry love from lips of one lover to the ears of the other and at others they carry curses for a boss of an irritated person at work. Continue reading “Whispers”

Milestones

Milestones are good beings. Not only they tell you how close you are to your destination, but also how far you have come from wherever you were. They don’t travel themselves, their life’s purpose is to remain static. It is the static of the milestones that pushes people to achieve them. Imagine if milestones were also on the run like us, there wouldn’t be much of an achievement then. Selflessness, that is what we ought to learn from milestones. Continue reading “Milestones”

Sufi

In continuation of Mystic

If you have ever been lucky enough to spend time in the company of a Sufi, you would have noticed that he keeps his eyes closed while he sings or dances. To an outsider, it seems that the Sufi has forgotten the outside world and is completely immersed in the act of enjoyment. A Sufi celebrates the entire existence. Continue reading “Sufi”

Celebrating Life

Life is unpredictable.

Such vast is its expanse of unpredictability that all the well planned events are tossed into a whirlpool of uncertainty and sent through a constant turmoil.

You wake up one morning in a happy mood. You ponder upon your life and the way it has shaped so far and you expect it to go on the same course for the rest of the years you have. Right there, in that moment, lies the catch. You expect it to follow the same course, you don’t know whether it would or not! Continue reading “Celebrating Life”

Blocked

I am forcing myself to write from the last two hours.

I started six stories and stopped them all. I can’t feel the words flowing through me tonight. I haven’t written a single blog post since two months. How lazy I can be at times!

I worked on my book in bits and pieces during the last two months. I watched cult movies and read lots of motivational quotes online, but couldn’t motivate myself to pick up the pen and write. I am angry on myself. I want to slap myself so hard that my lazy self wakes up and act on the laid out plan because I do not have much time. Continue reading “Blocked”

Why I Do What I Do

How do you feel when people advise you?Restart

There are three kinds of people in this world.

Firstly, there are those who hear the advising person uttering just one word. Bla.

Secondly, there are those who actually hear what the advising person is saying and feel that he is making a lot of sense.

Thirdly, there are those who hear an advice, ponder about it and finally make up their mind to change the stupid idiotic kind of lives they are living. Continue reading “Why I Do What I Do”
