Of love & loving…

It's funny that the word 'love' alone wasn't enough for us, we had to bring another word 'unconditional' before it to understand that love on its own is infact unconditional! After I had written my previous post, a couple of people in my circle took offense, for I was disowning a sentiment that rules the … Continue reading Of love & loving…

This is what dreams are made of…

I was 10 when I decided I won't drink coffee or tea, cos I didn't want to get addicted to a drink, as it was the case with several elders I knew then. Why should a habit dictate my life? I was 15 when I decided I won't be confined to terms like family, cos … Continue reading This is what dreams are made of…

Beyond the oppressive play!

Of a ‘Life’ beyond labels – 2

Last morning, Swati, my junior from the SSSIHL campus, shared a blog post: ‘Why Donald Trump is the Best Thing to Ever Happen to the USA’. The title will have you gobsmacked, but the author talks of the evident consciousness shift that is about to happen in our world, and how Donald Trump will play a key role in … Continue reading Of a ‘Life’ beyond labels – 2

Of anger, emotions and how world problems are a learning!

“Why didn’t Bheeshma help me in the sabha even when he saw how much I suffered?” “Bheeshma thought too deeply about the laws of men. It paralyzed him. He wasn’t sure whether you were already Duryodhan’s property – in which case he had no right to intervene. But sometimes one has to drop logic and … Continue reading Of anger, emotions and how world problems are a learning!
