Three books that I can read any number of times.

I was going through a bad break up, my worst so far. I knew in my bones that it was over, but I willed the universe into giving me signals that there was still hope. I looked out for signs behind cars, anything that could be his name. I played Ludo and bet that if…

What If You Fly?

“There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly?” Erin Hanson There is the age old battle between the mind and the heart.

If you must do something, then inspire people to truly live.

Language barely does the job of expressing how we feel; words cannot always convey the depth of an emotion a person can feel at a moment for another person, be it for a friend, a lover or a child. And funnily, as much as we would like to pretend otherwise, the intensity of the emotion…

Bella Ciao, Bella Ciao, Bella Ciao!

Good Beginnings are overrated 

  In my experience the phrase, “First impression is the last impression,” could not be more inaccurate because one of my closest friendships had a shaky beginning.

Courage is Fear Walking

As children you always look up to your parents as the perfect human beings, they are your personal crisis managers, your A-Team. At midnight, when the monsters come out, they take out their magic wands and chase them away. When they hug you, the world is restored to a happy place. When they say, it’s going…

Not my first love..

You were not my first kiss, But all the others faded with my first with you.   You were not my first date, But how you opened the door for me, Made all others feel less first like.   You were not the first person to hold my hand in a movie hall, But you…

Breaking yourself… Open

What I feel for you hides within my unguarded thoughts..  My guarded thoughts have become wiser with time..    The walls aren’t to keep you out,  They only serve to keep me together..    When you think I am closely observing you,  I am only looking at how I am moving into  yet another story.. …
