Making Your Soul Smile


What is it that makes your soul smile?
What is it that gets you going in a jiffy?
What is it that makes your heart race?
What is it that feels like a divine plan?

What is it that connects ‘you to your core?

What is it that resonates to you?

What is it that feels just right to you?
You will know it all at the right time.
And once you do, just follow your path.
You will make your soul smilešŸ˜‡

Joy Of Writing

Today I touched a milestone on WordPress.

Have completed more than 365 days of writing a post every single day.

WordPress reminds me I have written a post everyday for 365 days in a row.
Here I reminisce about my experience of writing a post every day on WordPress .

What is it to write 365 days consecutively?
A lot of passion patience and perseverance.
But above all is the joy of writing…

Looking back I realise the amount of contentment in the personal fulfillment of a promise I made to myself to write every day for a year.

The 365 days have certainly had their share of challenges..like relocation, health issues medical emergencies, and ensuing operations and recovery phase, marriages and demise in the family and a host of all those sudden changes of both the personal and professional kind that is prone to occur in the span of an entire year’s time.

But the whole idea for me was to see how committed I was to my writing and if writing every day would make me short of ideas ever.

What was the purpose? Simply to see if I can truly sustain in making time to do something I love and enjoy every bit of it for a long period of time.

My only clause I set for my self is to never write with a pressure to publish but to write with a passion for self expression and send out positively charged messages through these words into space… hoping it will make a difference!

My heartfelt gratitude to my wonderful readers and followers for your support and insights that sparked much of the creativity.

Some would take time to share relevant quotes and resources, some beautiful thoughts that were truly inspiring and some would send mails sharing their personal stories and experiences and even express a desire to connect and collaborate on artistic endeavors.

So this year of committed and consistent writing on varied topics has had its rewards too inspite of the grind. Like an offer for conducting my dance workshops. an opportunity to speak on motivation and womens empowement, invitations to judge local school competitions, write and compile a book of these blogs and two enquiries to ghostwrite their books. More importantly to have come across some truly amazing people and their writings many of who have turned into great friends here in these interactions.

Good start I would say! There is after all no writer without a reader. Thank you all for your generous words and comments that kept pouring in motivation required to continue in those challenging times.

Looking back at the posts published, I found my life experiences of the day moving like an imagery through these words and I am truly happy to have written and published my positive reflections in time.

Sharing my thoughts on what writing truly is to me in verses….

The Joy Of Writing

Never force the words out
For then there is no joy.
In fact, let your words flow from you
And remember you are just a channel.

The giving vessel will pour the words
Water this gift of creativity.
Your innate sense of understanding
Will summarize and summon the words for you.

Be proactive and prepared.
Provide time for reflections.
Reference from life and experiences.
Contemplate and convey.

Joy of writing is in the trust
Of allowing and accepting
The endless possibilities
Of creativity in the flow.

Know your thoughts are unique
In the way they arrive and arrange
In the flow is the magic
That is playing out through you.

Enjoy witnessing the tumble through
Of words in their own arrangement.
Trust in yourself and your maker
For all is pre ordained in time.

The Essence Of The Art of Dance



The Essence of the Art of Dance

To dance is to honour your body in every move.

To dance is to sense the freedom of the spirit.

To dance is being human to value all that you love.

To dance is to breathe in the soulful connects.


To dance is to tune in to every new moment.

To dance is to inspire another to unleash their shackles.

To dance is to meditate with creative intent.

To dance is to breathe in the wisdom of the creative spirit.

A Connected Life

This year I celebrate my five years of being and serving as a Member of International Dance Council UNESCO

Sharing a note I wrote 5 years ago…

Honoured to be nominated as an official Member of the International Council of Dance UNESCO. Itā€™s the official umbrella organization for all forms of dance in all countries of the world. Its members are the most prominent federations, associations, schools, companies and individuals in over170 countries.

Have to certainly add that back in the 1960ā€™s it was a visiting delegation from UN that had come to India who had got my dear father interested in learning these International Dances and later on teaching these dances as a hobby and now after all these years as his daughter, to have been certified by CID UNESCO I am touched indeed to say the least.

Thank you Dad for sharing with me this Magic of Dance. I am truly grateful that our simple dream of sharing the joy of Dancing by not only training people to dance but also specialising in applications of dance in holistic wellbeing through Dance Concepts, has been nominated to join UNESCO CID.

It surely connects the dots into a beautiful circle.

The prospect of working under the guidance of this phenomenal institution gives one unbelievable new strengths.

Learning to dance is indeed a ‘labour of love’ and I cherish every moment. How privileged we are to share this indescribable ‘magic of dance.’

Hoping to take the art of Dance to empower more and more people to sense and love the beauty of every movement in the moments called Life.

The whirling wisdom

In the gaze
Between nowhere and somewhere
Half opened eyes
Focussing within
Finding the sense of balance
In the inner recesses
Of the spirit and soul

Juxtaposed between
The art of the moves
Is the rhythm divine
That manifests the flow.
Subliming the Souls calling

Knowing the wisdom
Of the whirling moves
That centers
The mind spirit and body
All rolling into one
In the state of flow
A divinity in motion.

The truth by far
Is within us to find
Every truth unravelled
Conveys the wholeness
Of the harmonious flow
Each truth is sufficient
For the being to know.

Wonder of wonders!

Streamlined bodies shaped succinctly

Designed to function optimally

To float and swim in the water

Such precise definitions

Of structure and shape.

Each of the maker’s manifestation

So unique and unparalleled.

Wonder what moves the creator

To create such form and function

So remarkably created!

Every life is truly magnificent

Blessed and ordained

With life’s infinite abundance

Such is the Wonder of wonders!
