I had my first epiphany this February

February was life-changing. I had my first epiphany this month. In the first week of February, after hitting another low in life, I wanted to give up everything. But because I'm stubborn, I thought of giving it another try. I wrote what I wanted from life on a piece of paper. Then I did what I do best - I planned. I made a daily routine in which I included the activities to bring me closer to my goals. (By the way, my goals are to have peace of mind, attain happiness in things I have, and live a simple and meaningful life.) And most importantly, I made an effort to delete what was toxic or unnecessary. This is what I changed: I kicked off all the negative and bad influences - people, food, circumstances. I don't log into Facebook as I don't get positive vibes from it. I'm being picky with food and exercising portion control. But the challenge was to kick-off bad circumstances as they are never under our control.  The best way, in my opinion, to deal with a bad circumst…

Love is a marathon

We were 2 lovers, Who fought most of the times. I must write a crime novel for us, Certainly not a rhyme.
The frenzy in our bodies, The fire in our souls. Devil must have married Hell, We only fit these roles.
When I craved rain, He gave me fire. What ought to be worshipped, We lit its pyre.
The two of us, Made passionate love by the moon. Talked Rumi till wee hours, Slept naked till late in the afternoon.
But by the weekend, Anger steamed from every pore. And we confessed to everyone, We couldn't take each other anymore.
This off-on relationship, Was the talk of the town. The kind of love, In which couples often drown.
And we did drown, Too much passion filled-up our lungs. We made too many mistakes, We were way too young.
Love is a brandy-poison mix, We gulped our portion fast. We never talked about our emotions, We let the body did all the talk.
A kiss for a sorry, A hug to compensate a mistake. We ran towards an ocean, When we were not even ready for a lake.
15 years down the lane, 15 years of sifting the pain, I …

Want to Tone Down Your Spends in 2018, Follow These Habits

Did you know the top two topics for New Year’s resolution are health and money related? And did you know that 80% of the resolutions fail by February? What is that magical element that makes a resolution last? Even I’ve struggled to keep up my resolutions. I feel our resolutions fail because we set unrealistic standards and we don’t make a plan. To make resolutions stick, we have to set them in clear terms. To lose weight, the resolution shouldn’t be ‘I will lose 5 kgs in 2018,’ it should be concrete statements like – ‘I will work out 5 days a week,’ or ‘I will not eat after 7 pm.’  These straight and clear-cut statements have a better effect on our psychology. So if you want to tone down your spends in 2018, we have habits that work every single time. No more emotional spendingWe are emotional beings – emotional eaters, emotional shoppers, or emotional travelers. We try to buy happiness when we feel low. It works but for a very short span of time. The moment emotions wear off, we regr…

Vodafone endeavors make NCR residents happy and the entire nation proud

Back in 2006, being a small-town girl, I was awed by the magnificence of Delhi. I exited the Sabzi Mandi railway station and marveled at the engineering wonder of our country - Delhi Metro. The experience of riding Metro from Sabzi Mandi to Rajiv Chowk was a peek into the modern way of life - I was mesmerized by the management of Delhi Metro. It was nothing short of magic - the opulence and magnanimity were breathtaking. But the moment I stepped out of the air-conditioned premises of Metro, reality struck me. I cursed the June heat. It was even harsher in Delhi’s pollution. The buzzing traffic, vehicles coughing smoke, and dusty sidewalks - I felt sorry for those who live there. As for me, I was to catch the evening train back to my hometown where air quality is better. The picture of Delhi I saw on TV faded within minutes. I saw the authentic Delhi where heaps of waste, pollution, and Dengue were a part of normal existence. I made a mental note of never living there. The idea of sett…
