Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
Every person has a place they connect with, some call it their happy place, most-frequented outlet, I love to call it my paradise.
“Over the hills and far away
Looking out for a better day
When it seems like there’s no escape
Take me to my happy place.”
Have you heard this song by Saint Phnx? Every living being on this earth has a place they connect with, some call it their happy place, most-frequented outlet, I love to call it my paradise. You guys don’t agree? Well, how about I start with some examples.
The list is long and I can just keep going on. Anyway, sometimes this is not just a place, but maybe a person, a feeling, a dreamland, your thoughts, but for every being, there is something like this. And today I want to share about my paradise.
Ever since I can remember, I grew up in cities along the border of India, so there were always a lot of beaches and for some reason, I fell in love with water, it may be a swimming pool, a tributary, a lake or the majestic Indian ocean, whenever I am around a water body, I feel that it is inviting me with open arms. Just lying on the water floating with my ears covered, I can hear nothing but absolute silence (for the first few seconds until my thoughts start destructing my paradise).
The feeling of floating in the water or simply swimming or if I get lucky and get a chance to go snorkelling or scuba diving. During my earlier days when I felt sad or alone, even when I was homesick, I went for a swim in the nearest backwaters or the sea and that was sure to bring a smile to my face. In the last 5 years, I haven’t been able to do that and I regret my decision, but today I have decided that soon I will find my paradise again.
So, what is your paradise?

Neena Gupta made a statement in her interview with Humans of Bombay that she doesn’t believe love exists between a man and a woman. She said it starts off with lust, which then changes into affection, and becomes a habit. The only love she’s ever known and felt is for her daughter, Masaba.
Neena is married to Vivek Mehra, a chartered accountant who she first met on a flight. Vivek Mehra has two children, and it’s his second marriage. It’s Neena’s second marriage too. She was earlier married at an early age of 20. She has one child, Masaba, from her previous relationship with the now retired West Indian cricketer, Vivian Richards.
Her statement about love evoked some vehement reactions ranging from she’s not met the right man to “blood runs thicker than water”.
