A thought that ran on my mind is Who are we and Who we want to be seen to the outer world?

Everyone is there to judge who you are and what you do but they fail to realize you have been where you are after all hurdles to be who you are now. Yes, this is me penning it down as I have been through all obstacles since childhood of who I wanted to be since then. …


It was the month of October 2020 and I was just moving around buying stuff for home as it was covid times and we had to keep stock at home. It all started with a mild cough and cold where I started taking medicines to ensure I don't get detected with anything. It was going all well for when past few days I couldn’t smell anything.

That was a state of shock for me as I tried to smell food, flowers, perfume but in vain. It was an indication that I need to get myself tested and was praying and…


Positive thoughts bring positive energy.

In this world of pandemic all, we are filled with is negativity around us and in the world. Every morning we wake up to find out who and what would happen today. There is nothing in this world where we feel we can look back in 2020 and say this brought back happiness in our life.

Positive Attitude is what we have throughout but is it taking over by negativity. We feel we can push ourselves to get the negative thoughts out of our minds. But do we think we really can? Think for a second that you have a…


Traveling for Peace.

Are you running away from something?

Whether it’s work or personal, some people want to hide things from others or they feel it’s best not to open up as they never know the repercussions it might have. We still believe in the old traditional format of what if they know about it and would pinpoint me for it. The old belief that you live in a society where all respect you for who you are and what you do. Your actions play an important role.



I still remember everyone telling us you can’t do this because what will people…


Memories To Treasure.

We all have spent almost 5 months now at home but did we realize how many memories we have made at home. We have worked all day to clean our houses, take care of our health, hygiene, and be more careful about what we eat or drink. Yes, we have realized we have become more health-conscious. And did we also realize whatever we did was teamwork beautifully projected at home?

Our approach is more practical. We think we can build ourselves by following a routine schedule at home from waking up to ending the day on a good note. But…


It’s time we believed that no one around is for each other but you need to be strong with yourself. Everyone is just here to either talk behind your back or make someone believe that you are not the right person. Humans have started thinking just for themselves more than others.

The lord has got us to the world because he has rightly said in the Ten Commandments, “Honor your father and mother”. Hence, not many would want to hurt their feelings so why not hurt someone else. …


Everyone used to be excited the moment the rains were in, the thundering the lightning, and all kids rushing to school in the morning to catch the bus. All moms getting up early to pack bags and tiffins and bid a good day to their husbands and kids and then start their day as well at work. It was the time we all wished we needed a break from routine to spend time with each other.

Yes, the Lord hears us who truly pray from the heart. Here at this moment, we are spending time with our families, our parents…


Change is inevitable as said, but we all know it’s going to happen because it just does. We are living in a world where every day every moment there is a change in the way we look at each other to live with each other.

This change has brought out a different person in each one of us. From being a person who has learned how to meditate to a person who has brought out dancing skills, we have got adapted to this change by our skills which we never knew we were good at.

The most important of the…


Who are we in this world of Pandemic

We are puppets who are being put behind doors and to follow what’s been told. We are been informed about what we need to do and what to take care of. No hard feelings towards anything but this are what we had signed up for to live.



We had thought about our year ahead and felt we would make a difference this year by bringing out the best in ourselves. We didn’t know Karma would be a bitch to us of our goodwill. We never had felt we would lock ourselves behind a…


Life in a Lockdown 1.0

It all started with the mystery of what, how, and when. Everyone was curious to know what next. And in all of this suddenly the government announced a curfew from the next day. We had to pack whatever we had in the office which is important and leave.



Everyone was worried about what if someone beside me sneezes or coughs will I also be transmitted the virus. No one knew what to do and whom to believe. There was no one to give guidance nor did the government know what should be the message they should…
