Accept and Love the Gold Diggers

A lot of times people are ready to sell their souls for money and a lavish lifestyle.

The reason people resort to giving money, things and a lifestyle more… Continue reading Accept and Love the Gold Diggers

Dowry- A Play on Love

Dowry should not be taken or given. It makes love transactional as if it's a commodity. A person who truly loves you, will love and accept you despite the exchange of expensive "gifts" given in the name of dowry. It perpetuates subjugation of women. Why must a woman pay to be loved and cared for?… Continue reading Dowry- A Play on Love

The Silence of the Saint and the Sufferer

A lot of times people who are not invested in spiritual growth do things similar to that of a person walking the spiritual path. But what we don't realise is the huge difference in the reasons why things are done by both parties. A saint here implies anyone walking the path of spirituality, not necessarily… Continue reading The Silence of the Saint and the Sufferer

Some of us find every day a struggle with ourselves in a different way, maybe due to our focus, maybe our habits, maybe our perspective or due to the things we want which we know aren't good for us.

Is There Something Truly Missing in Your Life?

There isn't much we need to live a happy and fulfilling life. Yet when we look at things people have, maybe a bit different or maybe more than us, we begin to question whether we have enough to live happily. We begin to set goals based on what the society thinks we should have rather… Continue reading Is There Something Truly Missing in Your Life?

How We Age- Micro Poem

The Rain and Her Sorcery (A Poem)

Sitting alone I stared out of my window. Her presence was felt Even in her absence. I traced my finger as she did, Chasing the raindrops Slinding down my window- Racing down, mingling and sometimes Diverging onto separate paths. Life! I smirked. I saw her smile. Pain melted into my chest, spread And rested there.… Continue reading The Rain and Her Sorcery (A Poem)

Change with Time (Short Poem)

It's not always a lack of money and resources that can bring a place down. Time wrecks havoc on a place in many ways. Don't you think it's important to adapt to changing times?
