It's natural to be afraid because you've faced pain in the past. But - life's experiences all matter, even the disappointing ones.
It’s natural to be afraid because you’ve faced pain in the past. But – life’s experiences all matter, even the disappointing ones. Let go of your fears in 2018!
Not everything in life goes as expected. Sometimes, in fact a lot of times we are disappointed…I certainly am! And then we start missing a lot of things – food, friends, family, love, hope and perhaps lots of other things…
We are humans. Made of emotions.
And when it comes to emotions, we crave for them and fear them at the same time..
It’s that sudden surge in your heart to pour yourself out unconditionally in all directions into everything around you. That mystery of not knowing the depth of your feelings incites the excitement to fall for it. And even though the fear of getting hurt may be shallow, as you fall into it, it proves that it is for real!
For those who measure and confirm every detail can never get through such unforgettable moments of bliss.
The human heart can’t be forced; it is or it isn’t. If it is, nothing is can harm it, and if it isn’t, acceptance is really important. It isn’t meant to be handled with caution, it’s meant to be passionate and understood sans words.
It is adorned with the scars of the past on a slate that can’t be rewritten or wiped clean. It just has to be this way; memories are precious – good or bad, we cherish them and we must understand that none of them were futile. They are all meant to be purposeful for reasons only the universe knows. We hold on to the lessons of the past and that’s selfish. But that’s okay, maybe because we have been selfless for too long.
Its just that all of us need somebody to talk to, about nothing specific, but just like that, to feel good.
Without any questions or answers, but just to know that somebody, someone is around…that’s all.
So, this being the last post of 2017, before I begin my celebrations for New Year’s Eve, I promise that I’m going to let my heart be free from all the fears and love unconditionally. I’ll be selfish, yet magnanimous. I’ll embrace my flaws and work on my strengths. I’ll give up anything that bores me or stresses me out. I promise to take up that hobby that I’ve been wanting to since years. I’ll not let the unknown stop me and I’ll let my curiosity develop and explore the mysteries. I’ll pack my bags and strike off all the items on that bucketlist.
So cheers! Here’s to a new start! Here’s to lots of beer and love and adventures! Here’s to 2018!

I recommend reading Manjiri Indurkar's Origami Aai alongside her memoir to have a fulfilling and enriching experience of telling one's story with grace.
It’s All In Your Head, M famed author Manjiri Indurkar’s debut poetry collection, Origami Aai, is independent and yet an extension of her memoir in which she speaks with utmost grace about all forms of abuses that she has survived. In this book of intriguing and evocative poems, the poet weaves words to form images of the everyday life of her middle-class family, love found and lost, trauma, and healing.
The collection is divided into four segments, beginning with the family, slowly moving towards the world, and finally colliding them together.
We aren’t in mourning, but we are creatures of habit.
So we talk of each one who died of drowning,
and I listen to her stories with the patience
of a chronicler.
– Funereal Stories
When someone accuses you of "too much feminism", what they are really saying is, "I am uncomfortable with you challenging the status quo and disrupting my privilege".
Time and again, there is one phrase that keeps coming up in the social media discourse on feminism. Any guesses?
Ah, no prizes for guessing the infamous “itni bhi feminist” or “too much feminism” phrase, a classic eye-roller for me, and I am sure for many more of my tribe, in the realm of gender equality discussions.
Pray tell me, how can an ideology, a movement be too ‘much’? It’s not salt or the seasoning of your soup where you can go, “Oops, too much salt, only one spoon was required”. Either you stand for what feminism stands for, or you don’t.
