How to cure loneliness? It can not be cured because it is not a disease. It is the truth of life. The proof is that we were born alone and we will die alone. In between life and death, we surround yourself with other people and things to create an illusion of belonging. And we…

Terms And Conditions, And Love

People admire you when you fit in their frames. They stand up with you when it is convenient for them to do so. They be friends with you when you have something valuable to give in return. Love, it seems, comes with a lot of terms and conditions…That we rarely happen to fulfill. The only cure…

Gems in our life

We meet so many people in our lives and connect with them on many different levels. But most connections are like water on sand. But then, we meet certain people who change the very nature of our being. It’s like the radioactive effect. Suddenly you are not the sand, you are something else. Something much…

Life as it is

My sister’s pet died today. As I held the corpse in my hands, I felt something strange. Being closest to a dead body I have ever been, I didn’t have any thoughts about it. Neither could I decipher if the feeling was positive or negative.  Later I concluded that… At times, we have to stop…

Running Behind Things

We run behind different things in life. But if we look deep, we will realize that all this running is just a pursuit of happiness. You don’t want that car. You only want to feel happy about owning it. Though there is nothing wrong with owning the car, it is time to address the problem…
