“You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page. Writing comes from reading, and reading is the finest teacher of how to write.”
-Annie Proulx

Wise Words Wednesday 16.8.17

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

Kevyn Aucoin


With this happy, freedom quote I wish that everyone reading has a great day!

Wise Words Wednesday 2.8.17

Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You…Be Free…Share.”

Steve Maraboli

Have a great day 🙂

Flashback Friday: Ultimate Flight

I look for love, for peace, for rain
A drop that forever quenches my pain
The moment of immense bright white light,
My chance of the immortal ultimate flight.

Top Ten Tuesday: Best Drama Shows on TV

Drama is the spice of life, Or so I say when I’m in *that* mood! The millennials would say that there hasn’t been a perfectly good drama show on television since the Sopranos, but today’s list has the guts to take it on (This is me attempting to be dramatic with the words). In all seriousness, these shows showcase how the drama genre has evolved over the years to birth some very epic shows. From catchphrases to ultimate scenes to award-worthy acting performances, these are the best tv dramas of all time. This in itself is a very sensitive topic of discussion because all of us have our own list of the best shows on TV right now. And I am willing to accept your suggestions and criticisms of my list. This Top Ten Tuesday post will be different-obviously I have listed more than ten, I couldn’t stop. As always, there are honorary mentions because they appeal to a different part of the audience are best according to them. Here we go: Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Best Drama Shows on TV”

My Blog Turns Two!

Two. Last year it was one! It is all so surreal. Is it weird I have no words? While normally I’m rambling?

I have a couple of people to thank for this. Although I had had this thought of a blog for a long while before I finally took the plunge. Before I finally started researching about the best platforms to do this, I was a common person, just writing for the sake of it, living off on the appreciation of two-three friends who would be privileged enough to read my poetry. But, having a blog has been a rewarding experience. I felt myself getting more confident about my writing, even when I changed my style of prose and poetry. Even when I chose to write on more complex, non-mainstream topics. Choosing to focus on the moment has also been a big part of my writing in the last year. Looking at the blog, I can actually track my growth, the variation of the thought process and in me as a person.

My first thank you is directed to the WordPress community. Continue reading “My Blog Turns Two!”

“A mother is the truest friend we have. When trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

—Washington Irving

The bond that a mother has with her child is incomparable to any other. That level of purity is akin to spirituality and the infinite love and wisdom that she shares with us over our lifetime are priceless too. It is just the theme for today’s quote because we should stop and think more often about our mothers. And, thank them for their endless commitment and sacrifices.

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

-Mark Twain

Celebrating the birthday month for my blog in July! Which is why a birthday-themed inspirational quote. Mark Twain has the best quotes, concise and perfect. Finding out the reason why you exist is the biggest challenge ever since we’re born. And those who realise what their calling is, go on to become very successful. On this note, hope that everyone who is reading has a nice day. 🙂

Flashback Friday: Secret

Myriad colors and faces in the crowd,

Thoughts, dreams and wishes echoing loud

Find the man most glad, he’s stark,

For he hides a secret most dark.

PS: This one is from my diary archives. I remember penning this forever ago! It’s still remarkably accurate.


This was posted on my blog in July 2016 and received mixed reactions from the ‘crowd’! Because it is a litte dark, it seems like a twisted quartet. But the thought behind it is actually the common thread that binds us all today – that we carry deep secrets within us and yet be social, pretend to be happy and hide behind our smiles to appear normal. If you believe another interpretation of it is valid, I’d love to know.
