CHOICE OF WORDS #QuotedStories

March 15, 2017

CHOICE OF WORDS is something I failed to pick up from my Mother.     I adore my Love for my Family, I adore my faithfulness for my Friends, I adore myself for being  a good listener, I adore myself for being a continuous learner but above all, I hate myself for not being a person who carefully chooses the words. I hate myself for hurting those who love me most and the fact is I hurt the only ones…

January 24, 2017

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Yes, my dream has a future. When I close…

It was about proving to myself that I could do it. However, along the way, I noticed numerous other things. If you can dream,…

Do you fear from dark? Yesterday, my Son woke up midnight crying and shouting “Baba Baba” That moment, I was full of anger and guilt.

WTF we had- Cheers to Girl Gang

June 4, 2016

I was sad the day my Father got me admitted to All Girls college. Not sure why- Should I blame teenage or the missing male element or just the preconceived notion of boring and life-less girls college   Phew! I cannot be sure about the answer as it was a long time now (It was 2003), leaving faded memories. But the crux is I WAS WRONG. I couldn’t enjoyed that much if it was a co-ed counterpart rather than girls…
