Ekam evadvitiyam brahma

[The Truth is One, without a second]Chandogya Upanishad This hymn was precisely the sentiments of the morning air, as my husband and I went on our usual morning stroll with our dog. Lily, Tantri, Pluto and Johnny walked along with us: running, playing, sniffing, exploring the sunny world around them. Lily is missing the huddle...... Continue Reading →

Are You a Harbinger of Change or Silent Accomplice?

"I hope you don't find answers to your questions, because if you do, you will settle."These were the parting words of my therapist friend, after we were discussing the hues of oppression. I don't get how 'oppression' of any kind exists even today, but they do, and how very much so. Being one of those... Continue Reading →

Abuse Awareness: Take 2

After my last post, several people reached out personally, and it made me realise one thing. Very often, in order that we conform to a set standard, there is repression / suppression of all kinds, and that is why though people were agreeing, there was this general feeling that this isn't a talked about topic....

With so many balls up in the air, it seemingly becomes rather sensible to tackle the balls, rather than winding down into the bird's eye view.... Continue Reading →

To a friendly neighbourhood…

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened!" is a quote I could swear by, for having Phoebe has helped me understand the animal world a lot more, which would have been otherwise unlikely... Probably, the weight of this quote may not reach those who haven't lived with a pet... Continue Reading →

Of a life beyond ‘labels’ – 3

Post the heart-breaking CNN video, and Hony's War Veteran series, I stumbled upon the sentiments/outpouring of a Pakistani citizen, the animal vs. human debate in NY Times, and few other related articles this past week. Either in the articles or in the comments section, there is very often a debate, an insult, or insinuation, whatever people seem befit to pull the other party down. It... Continue Reading →
