In my city

What’s your favourite part of the city you live in? Peace among the crowd? A haven of greenery where the wet soil exuberates you? Or is it a quiet point away from the city where you go to view the stars?

As much as you hate the crowd in your city, almost each one of you has found a secret spot that has the power to calm you. It is a place that is the epitome of serene, a secret locked away and treasured for no one can know about its magical abilities.

It is a place where all shackles are broken, all disguises are shattered.

It connects to your soul in a way that maybe nothing else will. It guides you, gives you the means to search for your ultimate truth, your goal.

Love your city
Enjoy each part of it
The frenzied crowd
Peace at night
The rat race
That’s where you live
That’s where you belong
That’s who you are
That’s what makes you YOU
And that’s what will never let you back down.


The Power of Me

I am who I am. I will not justify myself to anyone. I don’t need to love myself through the skewed version of society. Irrespective of whether I’m religious or an atheist, whether I enjoy alcohol or am a teetotaler. Whether I’m a vegetarian or not. Whether I smoke, whether I believe in social service. Irrespective of any of my beliefs.

Why are there socialistic pre-requisites to survive in this world? Why is each one judged based on their choices? Why welcome some and shun some based on their right to live life the way they want?

No one has a right to judge me for anything I do, did, didn’t do or don’t plan to do.

I live irrespective of what people believe I should be doing. I do not owe them a justification for my faith.

I believe that the Almighty sees all. I believe in karma. I believe in giving more than expecting. I believe in leaning away from the materialistic world we are brought up in. I believe in a fairy tale. I believe that the best is yet to come.

And it’s okay if you don’t believe these things. Because we believe in humanity.


Just to clarify this write up does not relate to the physical meaning of the word naked but rather the state of mind.

‘Naked’ is a state of mind, a thought, self – awareness

It is a form of clarity that can unleash our innermost demons. This type of creativity is baring your soul on canvas, via a camera, write ups or music. Strip down all the walls and let the world in.

Unless and until we try we will never be able to accept the good with the bad within us, take the acceptance with the denial and the compliments with the suggestions. We must gauge how the world reacts to us in order to realize to what extent we need to improve. Being a perfectionist in this manner would take us to the level that we want to reach.

How to embrace Solitude

It’s not that difficult to tell yourself, “I’m not alone, I have myself.”

You have to remember that you have yourself. All the time.

Do we ever question ourself, “Why do I need someone else when I have myself?” 

You don’t really need anybody else. You need to love yourself and the way you are. You know what makes you happy, sad, excited or bored. What else do you need?

No one will love you unless you love yourself. 

No one will respect you unless you respect yourself. 

No one will be kind to you unless you are kind to yourself. 

Work hard but not to prove it to anyone but yourself.

Greatness need not be proved. It will be recognised by others 

Believe in YOU and the world will too!

You don’t need company for a movie, lunch, dinner or any outing if you are content with yourself. 

Don’t compromise for the sake of others. Today parents compromise for their children. Spouses compromise for their better half. 

Live a little for yourself as well, instead of sacrificing and compromising all your life. Sacrifice and compromises are a part of life but they should not allow you to lose your identity at any point of time.

The above will result in lack of confidence and a lack of interest in life.

Be yourself for yourself. 

Don’t try to please someone in exchange of yourself. 

Don’t try to compete with anyone but yourself. 

Don’t try to imitate any one as they are not you and you can not be replaced. 

Remember that you are equally important.

Have faith in yourself, love yourself. End this year with the best gift to you – YOU!


She loved him. He said he loved her.

Got married to a girl of his parents’ choice. 

Convinced her that she would always be the special one and they’d be friends forever.

Madly in love with him, she believed each and every word. Life seemed bearable again. She had him in her life and that was all that mattered.

But life isn’t always what we make it to be. Her heart was broken into a thousand pieces when she found out that he dated someone else while he kept proclaiming his love to her.

Her self confidence was broken. She was broken.

But with time, she learnt that you need to love yourself first before you love others. If your love hurts and betrays you, then he does not truly love you and you must not be fooled.

Today she thanks him for all those scars that reminded her to become a wiser, happier version of herself. Today, she values her near and dear ones and this experience made her realise what truly matters to her.

Today those moments don’t matter, no one can break her and her confidence.

Only after being subjected to extreme pressure, a piece of coal turns into a diamond!
