Thanks Maa! Trust me, you have done a good job!
In the nights of agony, you were my solace
Your comforting words Maa, led the flame burning!
All my fears, inhibitions disappear, the moment I think of you,
I know we all have to walk our own path,
but thanks Maa for being my torch-bearer
I know, my restlessness always worried you, still you never showed,
“Come on, you can do it”– this is what you roared.
You know Maa, my friends say that I am so tough,
They queue up to take my advice and call me to solve their problems,
That very vulnerable and sensitive girl inside me peeps out and applauds-
and I can imagine your face brimming with pride & joy,
I chuckle to myself “Ah! What a transformation!”
You nurtured me with rich values and ethics,
You taught me to trust, when the whole world seemed despicable,
You taught me to be compassionate and to love,
I believe, this has really worked,
I can let go hard feelings so easily, and I can breathe…
I breathe to be free, I breathe to be at peace, I breathe to live my passion.
I am able to stand up for myself and for the things I feel are right,
Nothing can crumble my self-belief, nothing can deter my confidence,
I am no more brittle, nothing can break me down,
I breathe to aspire what I desire, I breathe for my ‘continuous evolution’
I promise Maa, I will always keep my conscience alive
See Maa, I am growing up and have grown up all these years,
I’ve captured my doubts, I have fought with my weaknesses,
I’ve followed my dreams and have explored my strengths….
Really Maa, your cocooned caterpillar is slowly growing into a butterfly,
A butterfly with spread out wings and multiple colours of life.
Maa, now you can heave a sigh of relief, just sit back and see me flying….
Thanks Maa! Trust me, you have done a good job
Kudos to you,
Your baby J

He said that he needed sometime to himself. I waited for him as any other woman would have done, and I gave him his space, I didn't want to be the clingy one.
Trigger Warning: This deals with mental trauma and depression, and may be triggering for survivors.
I am someone who believes in honesty and trust, I trust people easily and I think most of the times this habit of mine turns into bane.
This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
This can have a drastic effect on other victims of domestic violence. It will also encourage the abuser that they can now threaten their victim that he/she may end up like Amber Heard on the internet.
The lives of actors, be they from Hollywood or Bollywood, trouble my peace. Though they are worshipped by their fans, the real-life of many is quite troubled. It is scary to see what money and fame can do to a person. These are the people who have made me realize that fame and money are not that important.
I usually try to avoid reading about actors and their lives but there is no escape when the internet gets flooded with news and you come across it again and again as it happened with Aryan Khan’s arrest, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock, or now Amber Heard v/s Johnny Depp case.
We clearly see the pattern of uncivilized society in the above-mentioned cases where the mass verdict is passed even before the jury or judge passes the sentence. Usually, there is no middle ground for these people who are just there to make a topic trending on the internet. One is black and the other is white, there are no shades of grey for these modern-day witch hunters.
