Is this what love is about?

Love is an emotion which makes us do a variety of things which we may not always do. From surprising them with gifts to taking them out to an expensive restaurant; from doing things that evoke nostalgic memories of the times gone by to just giving them a call to express how much they are missed and loved, all of us do all this and more to keep our loved ones happy and smiling.

Success or Happiness – What comes first?


Happiness is the key to success..

I have always believed that we are responsible for our own feelings. If we are sad, it’s because more often than not, we ourselves tend to think about the unhappy and depressing things in life rather than appreciating the happy moments.

If we are happy and satisfied with our lives, there are more chances for us to succeed and achieve our goals and dreams. A happy mind and soul is a perfect ingredient for success.

Success should be considered as a result of happiness rather than the other way round since the barometer for success changes from time to time.

Buddy parenting – Does it work?

There was a time when the sight of parents evoked fear, tension, nervousness and so on and so forth in children’s minds. But with the changing times, parents have also undergone a sea change. They have started acting more as buddies with their children empathizing with their problems, issues and difficulties rather than just acting as an overbearing and towering presence who do nothing more than scaring them. But does this so called buddy parenting work?

Most of us have always been averse to sharing the secrets of our relationships, bad habits, parties etc. with our parents. We are scared of them reprimanding us and putting up all sorts of restrictions to not let us do whatever we want. But isn’t that because we perceive parents as those humans who are always angry and looking to scare us? What if they behave like our best friends who listen to us and then advise us accordingly without jumping to any conclusions? What if they don’t judge us based on simple incidents in life? Wouldn’t it be a really delightful feeling?

All the world's a stage and men & women are merely players

All the world’s a stage and men & women are merely players

Isn’t the world a stage where all of us have different parts to enact? As infants, we are small and want all the love and care of our elders. Though we don’t understand emotions or the trials and tribulations humans face in the big bad world out there, we do know that crying indicates that we aren’t happy. From wanting food to going to sleep; from feeling uneasy to not getting what we want, we have a simple reaction to all and sundry – Cry.

Microblog Mondays: 6 years of blogging..


Blogging..

Blogging..

And I complete 6 years of blogging today. It’s been one interesting journey of learning to write, meeting new bloggers, making new friends, winning a few contests, making a name for myself in the world of blogging but most importantly having the pleasure of being able to convert my thoughts into words.

As I got deeper into the facets of blogging, I started to read a lot more. I began my blog as an online diary where I could pour my feelings about anything and everything affecting me directly or indirectly. But, over the years it has an evolved into a one stop shop containing stories, reviews, opinions, interviews and a lot more.

Stepping into my 7th year of blogging, I thank all of you for the constant feedback, encouragement and critique over all these years. Without its readers,  any blog is nothing but a barren land.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you could go all out to achieve it? Have you ever been so determined to get that one job? Have you ever waited for that one break to kick start your creative career as a musician, artist, writer and the likes? Have you ever studied with as much dedication as you could to pass the entrance exams to the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs)?

Is abusing elders a fad in today’s society?


Abusing elders..

Abusing elders..

Abusing and ill-treating our elders has become more common than ever in today’s fast paced world. These are the same elders who take care of our every need from the time we are born. These are the same elders who answer our every innocent query. These are the same elders who woke up at night when we cried as babies or even teenagers. But when the same teenagers become old enough, they feel that abusing and disrespecting elders isn’t really a big deal.

Be it our parents, uncles or aunts, we always tend to have arguments with our elders on anything and everything under the sun as we reach our teenage years and beyond. Everyone talks about ‘generation gap’ being the main reason for all the problems. What’s this generation gap all about? Simply put, its the  feeling among youngsters that the elders don’t understand them while the elders feel that they are best placed to guide the youngsters since they have seen many ups and downs in life. And there begins the clash.
