Silent Gratitude!!!

It’s quite true, “Silent Gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.” But expressing gratitude only in simple words is not only the solution. One should have a deep feeling for it. The word, “Thank You” has a great meaning attached to it and if real emotions are strewn with it, the impact is much more. My…

Friday Foto Fiction Week 13.

The huge palatial bungalow where we grew stood today, dark & dingy with cobwebs hanging all around. Tears welled up in my eyes, this was the place where Maa-Pa lived with dignity and kept the ancestral property neat and clean…and what we did? In race of earning high, we uprooted our roots. Now, I have…

Five Vices!!!

How can one be thankful for the vices? Never heard of it before nor had ever tried, but The Thankful Thursday asked me to jot down the vices for which I am thankful to Almighty. Even the Supreme power will be astonished as what I am upto. I racked my brain and finally closed to…

I checked my watch, it was 2 am. “Pa…what are you doing at this time?” “Nothing Beta…venting out my emotions.” Pa said without stopping his hands on the typewriter. As usual, I entered Pa’s room with morning tea but…

Lost! #Stress

Learning Never Ceases!!

Life is the best teacher and learning lessons of life is an ongoing process; it never ceases. The day you stop learning; the flame of life is extinguished. I firmly remember my school days when our bags were much heavy and my great granny used to make fun of us, saying, “Tumse bhari tumhara basta”…

The day starts with the dawn and the view of sunrise emerging from the horizon is impeccable and the sight is  tranquilizing,leaving us…

I Count on My Blessings!!

  I am happy because I count my blessings rather than abusing Almighty for the shortcomings in my life. There was a time in my life when I too had the habit of cribbing, lost control on my pangs of emotions and thought I was the unluckiest of all. As I grew and started understanding…
