This blog is about me contemplating and trying to make sense of this fascinating journey called life and penning down various life lessons that I learn along the way.....
So make yourself a nice cup of coffee..pull a chair and sit back and enjoy the little ponderings that I share with you...

About The Blog

"A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it" - Roald  Dahl

" Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a truth.'
Say not, ' I have found the path of the soul, say rather, 'I have met the soul walking upon my path.'
For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals."
- Kahlil Gibran  
Sometimes unknowingly life puts you in a situation where you are forced to look inwards and do a whole lot of soul searching. And then begins your inner journey to get in touch with your true self...a journey to heal yourself completely at soul level...And you realize that nobody said its easy.. Infact nobody ever told you anything about it!!  Its a slow process of self discovery with its own highs and lows. Surely not for the faint hearted and surely not if you can't handle some humour with grace. Because the way I see it, the Universe surely has a strange sense of humour to get its way.... 
Some of the lessons learnt on the way are deeply personal which are for one's own soul as they are unique to you and some are universal in nature. I am just a regular person and no one to advice anybody but I find that writing heals me and I believe that sometimes just reading someone else's journey helps us at many unknown levels and somewhere finds a resonance within our hearts too...helps you understand that you are not the only moron thinking all this. :) Hence the sharing.... Read at your own risk..:) 
I think a book needs to be written which is already waaaaay past its deadline ..."What They Don't Teach You In Any Damn School!".... :) And I have a thing or two to add to it!!
Take what you care out of it and leave what is irrelevant to you...

P.S. Not everyone will understand your journey. And that's fine. It's not their journey to make sense of anyways...... It took me a while to understand my own and am still figuring things out on the way! :)
