As kids, we were often fascinated to see our teachers outside the school premises. It is as if we didn’t think they had a life outside. What do they do, how do they speak, dress, and function? Somewhere, this notion gets carried into our grown years, knowingly or unknowingly. And, most often then not, we end up seeing a person in line with their role towards us rather than an individual. Interesting, isn’t it? One of the workshops I had attended during my student years around soft skills, called out this one point explicitly. We should learn to see a person … Continue reading Let’s talk – person to person.

But what if, at times, the gratitude comes with a sense of guilt. I am fortunate to be in a space in life I am content with. I am surrounded by loved ones, have the basic human needs met, at a good headway professionally, and get to pursue my passion for writing. Despite that, I wished sometimes I could do more and … Continue reading Gratitude without guilt.

There is a method to everybody being. So, what’s yours when it comes to your favorite workout regime? Are you a gym person, more into outdoor activities, or practice yoga and the likes of it? While the options are many, after years of deliberation, I have found the regime that works best for me – Power Yoga. (Needless, to say, I have not explored ALL the avenues available around the world.)

I see the person you are now.I remember the person you once were. I recall the day the glass shattered and your countless attempts to put together its shambles. All I see now is you covered in scars and some … Continue reading Shine on
