It's the time to shift from outer to inner world, from unconscious to conscious.
Everyone is feeling cacophony of emotions: fear, uncertainty, anxiety, blame, denial.
Though there is silence in the outside world ,the world inside is loud.Is it the calmness or the storm or the calmness before the storm? Every heart and mind is saying something ,either silently or loud enough to create a mayhem …Safe and Comfort ,seem to be alien to all …When people are panicking, impulsive buying is happening , going into self isolation is becoming depressing, no malls, no theaters, no pubs, and no socializing, I am finding love… That’s the bounty of being positive and content… And I’m not boosting about ‘self love’ here… That is there and will be there… Going inward is a process whether being in quarantine or not being in quarantine…
But we are creating a model for ourselves. Amidst all the hopeless thoughts there is love, compassion, respect, forgiveness, patience and grace. Unity, generosity, community these feelings are flourishing in the most inspiring way.I can see and feel love around… Long lost souls are coming together and getting connected emotionally, spiritually… People are taking the pain of calling each other which they generally forget in their so called ‘I’m busy life’…
Free gifting of online services like yoga, meditation, sharing motivational videos, playing silly games online, singing for each other, getting connected over video calls or voice calls with friends, family, colleagues are the things which don’t happen otherwise.It’s a journey from being ‘selfish’ to ‘selfless’.Board games, Cooking, Dancing, spending time pursuing hobbies, and enjoying that sip of tea watching a beautiful sunset, all these and many more are happening… Where we pray we will defeat this demon soon but at least we are taking a step to conquer the demon inside… We are taking lessons and valuing time, emotions, efforts…
It makes you realize the difference between need and desire.It makes you value the resource.Makes you survive on basic meals instead of an elaborate meals. It ask you to get in sync with the mother nature.It makes you realize the value of following a routine.It allows you to pay gratitude to people(househelp, cook, nanny), nature, resources, food.
Look at the bright side…Come closer to your inner self, listen you inner voice, embrace the vibes of the universe…It’s the time to fuel the mind, body and spirit. It’s the time to shift from outer to inner world, from unconscious to conscious…It’s an opportunity, look at the bright side, utilize it, untangle those knots and express love and happiness…Love everything and every one around you.
Get in sync with the slow life… Zindagi race nahi, ek khoj hai apne aap ki…
Is it a troubling time? Yeah !!!
Can we overpower it with love, compassion, patience, respect and grace??? Certainly…

Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education
Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education.
Come Monday morning, homes with young families across the country are in a chaotic yet familiar dance. Ceiling fans are turned off, and lights turned on with a vengeance.
Teeth are cleaned, and breakfasts are shovelled down. Uniforms and shoes are thrown on, and heavy school bags are picked up as parents and kids alike make a mad dash for the door.
But if you look closely, the underlying reason for anger and frustration in both groups of women is the same. It is the anger amongst women in being told what (or not) to wear.
A twenty-two-year-old Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, was detained by the morality police for breaking the country’s strict dress code. While in custody, Mahsa passed away. It was alleged that Mahsa was beaten in custody, leading to her death. An allegation, the Iranian police have dismissed as baseless.
The incident has sparked protests all over Iran. Women are taking off and burning their headscarves. They are chopping off their hair in public squares. These acts of defiance are against a regime that makes the hijab mandatory for women.
Closer home, in Karnataka, a few months back, young girls in PUC colleges were protesting against the administration’s decision to ban headscarves in the colleges. They were demanding their right to education while following the tenets of their religion. The matter was taken to the Karnataka High court, where the women lost. The matter is now sub-judice in Supreme Court.
