The tussle between the past and the future... when the future beckons you but the past is not willing to let go off you!
I emerge from the shadows of the past that have railed against my fatesI shrug off old memories, I cast aside doubt, walk out of depressed gates.I peer, I look ahead to the future; confidently it meets my tentative smileIt extends a kind hand, emboldens my resolve and I walk that last mile.
Alas, but he past refuses to stay quiet, it rises up again warring with meMuch as I refuse it still badgers me, harangues me to look back, to seeWhat a pitiful state was mine, what depths of sorrow I have called homeMuch as I try to shake off the dread, I fear that it still lingers in me, some.
Its clutches may have weakened as my intent strengthened but alasIt still has the power to shatter my will, strew it like shards of glassFor I have to admit, my past has weakened me, it has enfeebled meIt debilitated me, blinded me to a degree that I was unable to see
I stand at the crossroads looking at the path behind and ahead,Unsure of how to move past this turmoil that rages in my head.Then, taking a leap of faith, I gather my courage and walk onAhead on the path, embracing what fate and the future bring on.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
