Dare to Dream!

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them". ~Walt Disney 

Childhood days are the best days in our lives. One day we desired to be a Doctor, Another day, engineer, One day we aspired to become a scientist and another day we decided we would be an entrepreneur.

When we were young, we dared to dream, beyond our will, beyond our might. We believed in ourselves and we had the confidence that we would be able to accomplish and fulfil our dreams. Looking back, I’m not sure of how and where that confidence came from, but still there was something deep within , some burning desire, to set a dream; a destination and to fulfil it, at some point of time in the future . Agreed that we were completely ignorant of the course of actions which we would have to undertake to realize our vision, but our mind was set on the destination. We dreamt without being gripped by a sense of fear, we knew we could do it; we knew we would do it. We just had to figure out how.

The Story of My Name!


Every day something interesting happens to every one of us. Some of us are lucky enough to pay attention to the little “interesting” things which happen. Some of us are too busy to notice it. It all comes down to how you respond to, when something happens.

The other day when I was on my way to office, I as usual, kept myself occupied with twitter and music, when a lady came and sat next to me. She was accompanied by her son who was around 5 to 6 years. He was very well behaved, sat quietly without pestering his mom. I was surprised. Such a well behaved boy, at such a young age!

If I Had Two Extra Hours In A Day...

If you had two extra hours in a day, how would you spend it?

This is the question which Indiblogger and Surf Excel have been asking us bloggers.

Today, in this fast paced world, in trying to cope with the speed, we tend to sacrifice a lot of things. Things and activities and people who are dear to us. We do not have the luxury of spending time for our favourite shopping or for a match of cricket. We are not lucky enough to manage the hectic schedule and spend quality time with our loved ones. We are deprived of time to enjoy the small things in life. We complain when it rains, we complain when its sunny, we complain for anything and everything. We’ve lost patience and the art of relishing things. All this leads to anger and irritation, and finally one is never content.

It's Today!

The alarm went off.
I got up immediately.
I couldn’t stop smiling,
The day had finally come.
The day I’d been waiting for so long,
The day I was looking forward to
Ever since I was a child.
I’d dreamed of this day, so many times.

Guest Post : "Real Treasure " By Saru Singhal

Saru Singal. She doesn't need an introduction, because I'm sure everyone in Blogosphere would have read her wonderful poems. I was under the impression that one could write poems only on certain topics, until I read her blog. She chooses the best of the words and writes poems on topics one could ever think of. She has inspired me ( and many others )to write poems. I would describe her poems as "Soul- Stirring " ones. I'm happy she consented to write a Guest Post for my Blog. Thank you Saru, I'm extremely honored


We can live alone, lest we wish
Treading day in and out. 
All success we can achieve,
Enough to stand on roof top and shout.
No song is difficult to sing, 
No wood difficult to cut.
But try listening unsaid,
Cut the silence for that you must.
No one is born to be alone,
No one is born to shed tears.
Bring more people in your life,
And shed all your fears.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Keep a treasure, a treasure of relations;
For all ups and downs of life.
When stuck in storm,
They help you survive...


~ Saru Singhal

Guest Post : "The Secret Of Our Society" By SUB

Subhrashis Adhikari aka SUB writes at  KHOJ . His blog makes one think, or rather challenges one to think and stretch one's level of imagination. He writes on common topics of discussion, but his style of writing and the way he frames it up, and the way he clearly conveys the abstract thoughts is simply amazing. I'm sure his words have a huge impact on his readers and followers. Simple yet, powerful it is! I'm glad that he was able to write a Guest Post for me, when I asked him. Thank you Sub. I'm honored

Inequality is the biggest problem in today’s society. However it is inequality that makes us, some of us, rich. ‘Enough’ is never enough for human beings, they always want more. They want more so that their future is secure. That is why we work hard everyday over-stressing ourselves to have our own house, a big car, a big bank balance. And in that process we forget to live our life that exists only in the ‘present’. Precisely because of that reason we started agriculture 10000 yrs ago, to have more food than required for the ‘secured’ future.

Guest Post :The Letter" W " By Sahana Rao

Sahana's blog,  Ahamkaara is one of its kind. She writes about instances which happen in our everyday life in a very engaging manner. Anyone reading her blog will be able to relate to what she writes. Among other things,I like the way she sticks to conveying simple thoughts, in a beautiful way. I admire the way she plays with words and her ability to connect with the numerous fellow bloggers who follow her blog. She is one of the best bloggers in Blogosphere and one of my favourtie Bloggers.  Thank you Sahana for writing me a guest post. I'm honored! 


 The 23rd letter of the English alphabet. Yes. The letter I do not like to see. A Plagiarist. A Copy-cat. Letter sans individuality. A Parasite.  Oh.. Am I calling names? Wait. Wait. Let me explain..

Now, go back to your phonetics and voice out "W". Loudly. Now, again. Loudly and Slowly. Did you say "double-u"? Supporters of W, try not using "Letter U" for voicing out "W". Does it have a unique sound? No. It does not. Let us come back to this later.

Guest Post : "Beauty is Skin Deep" By Sujatha Sathya

Sujatha's  "Conversations "was the first blog I read, after joining Indiblogger. Reading her articles on various topics written with a natural style, triggered me to get into blogging more actively.If it had not been for her, I wouldn't have taken blogging so seriously and I would've been completely ignorant of  the beautiful world of Blogging. The thing with Sujatha is, she can write on any topic under the sun, and ensure that her readers enjoy what she writes irrespective of the topic, which proves her versatility. I felt so honored when she consented to write me a guest post, when I asked her. Thank you Sujatha.

Beauty is Skin Deep

And hence, it is superficial; it doesn’t last, it can’t be trusted & so shouldn’t be idolized or desired.This is the puritanical view of beauty. Is it really so?
