The real one..

Your lowest days don’t define you,
Do not take them too seriously..

They won’t last too long,
If only you let them pass by like a breeze..

They hit you in the face
With stuff you dislike the most..

They give you feelers, your lowest days,
Of the disconnection..

It’s a call to be alert, and change course
Thought by thought

Steering towards
that which lights you up..

The lowest of days are nothing more
than a sign,
a reminder to look at something nice..

Evidence that we’re surely looking in the wrong places,
Proof of our disconnection,
which is nothing more than a nudge

To look at something beautiful
To smell something lighter
To feel a little different

Look out the window, the real one,
You find on the real walls of your home..

Not the ones on your screen, or Facebook..

Listen to the cooing of the birds
Or the rattling of the cars, making their way through a city full of traffic
That’s some will power..

Look at the sunshine .. yeah!!
Hits us hard, especially in Mumbai in the scorching summers

Feel the changing times, and the ease they bring along…

How EASY!!!

At fingertips are options of a meal,
a party or even a vacation

Sometimes even an alternate life set up in a distant location

Life indeed has become easy
And bright!!!

Love is around, all the time!!
If not around you, maybe just around the corner

And if you still can’t find it,

Be certain!!!

You’re looking in the wrong places..

Just change the view, tilt your head
Or if not..
Look out the window, the real one..

My saving grace: being OKAY!!


I’ve learned this lesson several tens of times, and yet when I’m struggling with any kinda negative emotion, I forget to turn to it.

We have been raised to escape from our emotions, and taught that it’s not right to feel anger or disappointment or whatever it is that others think isn’t desired..

I myself feel weird when my son feels guilty of expressing his disappointment. He openly speaks it! He expresses it by crying out loud. N I’m getting used to being okay with that..it’s tough n yet I’m learning..

It’s okay to feel anger! The minute we let it pass, it’s gone!! Struggling with it makes it stay! 

I intend to choose the ‘being okay with any negative emotion’ part.. It makes life super easy..
