  • Mahabharata revisited – Draupadi’s Insult Part I
    Introducing a new series of write-ups , a series on the learning from the Mahabharata, a personal perspective , named Mahabharata Revisited. A Disclaimer- my assumption is most of you know the basic story and characters in the epic, as I will be picking up incidents at random from this story. The Mahabharata is one of the greatest epics in human history, it is more than an epic, I believe it is the psychological profile of humanity. Every character in the story has a big presence and impactContinue reading “Mahabharata revisited – Draupadi’s Insult Part I”
  • From a writer’s block to the secret of life…
    This writer’s block is killing me, it has been three months and I have not written a single article, not sure why. I am not in any crisis or pain, the stress and work are as usual, yes things are changing and life is happening but why should that stop my flow of words or self-expression? This is the first time since I took up writing on a regular basis that such a phase has happened. I tried writing in bits and pieces but nothing satisfactory. I amContinue reading “From a writer’s block to the secret of life…”
  • Hoarding, Minimalism, Consumerism and Frugal living
    The topic will give you a gist of what has been on my mind the past few days and the photo on the blog shows the pictorial depiction of those thoughts (photo credit – Google). I have been calibrating my finances, my debt, and expenses. I found a motivating method of budgeting and I have refocused my financial goals this year. The last year has helped in moving me towards a mindset of minimalism or rather I should say the travel restrictions and restrictions in general due toContinue reading “Hoarding, Minimalism, Consumerism and Frugal living”
  • Social Media Distractions : How long will we choose to live in denial?
    About a month ago in India, WhatsApp announced its updated privacy policy. As a normal user of WhatsApp, I clicked on the agree button without even reading the policy, I never gave it a second thought, in my mind WhatsApp was an essential communication tool and I saw no other alternative to reaching friends and family. Until I spent some time watching videos and reading in detail on what this privacy policy change really meant, and it hit me, how callous my approach had been to my ownContinue reading “Social Media Distractions : How long will we choose to live in denial?”
  • Looking back at 2020
    Never before has a year been such a mixed bag of everything. Usually a year sums up pretty neatly as a good year or a bad year or an average year. This year has only one adjective to justify it “Crazy”, no year in the history of humanity shook each and every human being at the same time with the same intensity as this one. In terms of the evolving universal consciousness and the feeling that we are the same, this hits a score of 100. Not allContinue reading “Looking back at 2020”
  • I Promise Myself
    I Promise Myself To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own. ToContinue reading “I Promise Myself”
  • Loss of a romantic other
    Today’s topic is in popular demand, I have been thinking of penning it down for many days now, and yes it is a part of my upcoming creative project, so will be a sort of sneak peek or preview. Loss of a romantic relationship, it can be a girlfriend /boyfriend or a 20 yr old marriage, it can be due to separation of loss of life. A heartbreak as we call it can happen at any age and at any stage of a relationship. The hurt or painContinue reading “Loss of a romantic other”
  • Osteoarthritis – the story of my invisible illness
    The picture is me at the famous Chele La pass in Bhutan, the highest pass with a beautiful view, I managed to climb a small bit near the top with the help of that walking stick, our sweet cabbie and motivation from a dear friend, I was in excrutiating pain but wanted to scale the small bit for the view and it was worth it. The thing about invisible illnesses is that they take years to get diagnosed. Doctors are not sure and first try and rule outContinue reading “Osteoarthritis – the story of my invisible illness”
  • Age and society’s milestones
    You never really think about age when you are younger, not until you hit the magic number 30. Then you start counting if you achieved the milestones society has set for all of us. Are you at least in a middle management role at your job? Are you in a stable marriage?Do you have at least one child? Do you have savings, fixed deposits, stock options and right mutual funds? Have you booked or bought your first house? Do you own a car? And the list goes on.Continue reading “Age and society’s milestones”
  • Back to future – is the future closer than it appears?
    Over 100 years ago a writer named John Elfreth Watkins made a number of predictions about the future, some of which have come true and we consider them commonplace. He predicted digital photography, mobile phones and pre-cooked meals to name a few around the year 1900. Imagine the time he made these predictions, they would have sounded ridiculous and impossible, but we are living this impossible in our daily lives today(Here is a link of the full article of this predictions). My cousin shared a short video clipContinue reading “Back to future – is the future closer than it appears?”
  • The day of the ultimate Victory
    Today is Dussehra/Vijaya Dashami, the day Goddess Durga won the battle against demons after nine days and nine nights of continuous war. This is also the day when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after defeating the demon king Raavan. This day is also the day the Pandavas retrieved their weapons and ended their exile. It is the day of victory of good over evil and restoration of faith and goodness. In Northern India, it is celebrated by burning down a large effigy of the demon king Raavan, aContinue reading “The day of the ultimate Victory”
  • Mirror Mirror on the wall..
    Check out the podcast version of this post Click here I saw a beautiful oracle card the other day, it depicted a white swan swimming in the pond, and looking down at its reflection in the water. What it saw was not it’s plain self, it saw a queen sawn with a diamond crown and a beautiful necklace. This got me thinking, what do I see in the mirror?  At some point in life, most of us have seen a grander version of ourselves in the mirror. DoContinue reading “Mirror Mirror on the wall..”
  • A visit to the office amongst COVID
    Last Monday, I had to visit the office to help onboard a new joiner to my team. It was not mandatory for me to visit the office, but I wanted to meet this person at least once and welcome her into the company. I had to take a few approvals before visiting the office and finally was ready to go there. After 6 months I stepped foot into the office building, I swear I almost forgot the name of the landmark to my office building. I took anContinue reading “A visit to the office amongst COVID”
  • Destiny and Karma; an attempt to understand them with the help of an avatar
    Click here to check out the podcast version of this post Today I want to share a small story from the Ramyan, the great Indian Epic, the story of Lord Ram. The Marathi language is blessed with a beautiful creation called “Geet Ramyan”, a musical version of the Ramyan, written by the great G.D.Madgular and composed by Sudhir Phadke. This creation contains 56 divine songs picking key events in the Ramyan. I am going to discuss one of the songs from this composition that describes the scene whenContinue reading “Destiny and Karma; an attempt to understand them with the help of an avatar”
  • Power of a tiny clumsy little creature
    Animals are connected to source energy on an unadulterated level. They have no filters, no preconceived notions, they do not pretend and most importantly they always live in the present moment. Guess where divine always resides, in the present moment. A tiny clumsy little bird has shown me that God can reach out in so many ways and it is not always a grand entry.  When an animal decides to trust you, it trusts you completely, there are no reservations, and when it showers you with love, theContinue reading “Power of a tiny clumsy little creature”
  • Surrounded by Excess yet searching for More
    This post will take 15 -17 mins to read, if you would rather listen, click here for the podcast version This best describes the generation we live in, no other generation has faced this dilemma and it is graver than we imagine. In today’s age, we lack for nothing, most of us have good jobs, we can afford to indulge in any whim we want instantly, yet hardly a handful are at peace. Very few people are aware of the gravity of the situation this generation is in,Continue reading “Surrounded by Excess yet searching for More”
  • When the past comes haunting..
    For those who would rather listen, here is the link to the podcast episode of this write-up head to Spotify- https://open.spotify.com/episode/157LqjrzaOMBFPGPNGvbip?si=NtdfR5OWTmOGvm7d0wAkKg All of us have a past, technically we wouldn’t be in the present otherwise. Some have a sordid past, some a loving , caring one but all of us have a past. And every now and then our minds reminisce in the memories. How would you define memories? Are they just video recordings of events as captured by our brains? To an extent yes, but that isContinue reading “When the past comes haunting..”
  • What travel means to me
    Note: This post will take 12-14 mins to read, if you would prefer to listen instead, click here for the podcast version With the current world situation, a lot of travel enthusiasts like me have been forced to stay home. Most of us have gone the longest without travel and it is starting to get bit uneasy. Why is travel so important to this generation than any before us? Our parents are ok with not travelling for long periods of time, in fact summer holidays were the oneContinue reading “What travel means to me”
  • Soul Journeys and Desires- perception of happiness
    This post will take 10 mins to read through, if you would rather listen, here is the link to the podcast version on Spotify Whilst pondering on life’s purpose, I thought one of the possibilities is that we have taken birth to fulfil our soul’s journey or a small part of its journey, and things that give us satisfaction are somewhat checking the boxes of our soul’s desire. If you feel a compelling need to donate to someone poor, and you feel good after doing that, it isContinue reading “Soul Journeys and Desires- perception of happiness”
  • Courage – hiding in plain sight
    What is courage? A highly regarded and sought after virtue. We have heard numerous stories of courage from David & Goliath to our armed forces protecting our borders from terrorists. Courage has always been seen as something only a few brave people exhibited. Not everyone’s cup of tea, the brave few who act during times of crises and life threatening situations. The fire fighter who jumps into the fire to rescue a child or the rescue teams at Mt.Everest who risk their lives to save stranded tourists andContinue reading “Courage – hiding in plain sight”
