In brief!


thirty years since this birth
accumulation of many moments
some lived with awareness
some lost in ignorance

thirty years since this birth
accumulation of many people
some remain a long acquaintance
some fade away in short durations

Let it go!


letitgoAttachments work strangely. Without our knowledge, most of the time, we attach ourselves to a lot of things. We take them to be ours. We own it or constantly keep trying to. A feeling of possession rises within us. This obsessiveness always comes with a fear – the fear of losing – sometimes losing the whole and sometimes losing in parts. With this fear, comes sorrow and pain.

Khushwant Singh


khushwant_singhThose were the days when I used to read and follow Ravi Belegere very feverishly. Every piece of article written by him in “Hi Bengaluru” and “O Manase” magazines,  every one of his books published, anything and everything associated with him never used to go missed. It is through his writings I got introduced to writers like Jogi, Chalam, Malagaonkar, Ramachandra Guha, Ruskin Bond, William Dalrymple and many more. Khushwant Singh was one such writer I came across and got glued to since then. With each passing book, I got more and more interested towards his writing and towards the man himself. I got greatly impressed by his witty narrative, strong vocabulary, bold and straight forward writing.

Go for your dreams!


A famous quote goes like this –

The only thing between you and your dream is YOU.

Often we have tendencies to blame it on X, Y and Z which are stopping us, which are strongly holding us back from achieving what we want. We are experts in this. After all it’s always easy to blame external factors, isn’t it? However, if we try to open up a little to ourselves and dive deeper into those reasons, we will realise that, it’s always the “I” that is stopping us and not the external factors. First step towards achievement is to accept this and next is to work towards it.
