Do Good
For you are only doing, what you are meant for!

Have fun
Along the way, live, love & laugh heartily !


And the woman labours on!

A balloon seller now she is

Her name does not matter

Married for she was considered a burden

By her very own parents.

A poor girl from the city of Rajasthan India

Surviving, living by and around

Cafes in the city of Pune

Just 19 solar cycles old

Her malnourished body has no signs of youth

She works all day selling balloons in hope

For one square meal to come her way

Often she says she eats only once in the day

If she is lucky she gets a bite-sized meal.

She wanders around till late evening

and sells her wares outside the hip street cafes

Often times to children and some for grown-ups too

My daughter is all of 19 too

Was visiting the cafe with friends

She chanced upon her last evening.

Begging her to buy some balloons

She took a bit of time and listened to her woes

She was deeply moved and she fed her dinner

In return, she was gifted a balloon from the heart

And this story above is the truth of this balloon seller’s

Life and existence

That she heard first hand and narrated to me last night

I reflect on how she said…

‘The balloon seller is stoic and yet hopeful’

Her life is a tragic story and pitiful

An account of a woman’s day!

Another day dawns …

They call it Woman’s Day!

The woman labours on

With the same fervour and faith

Like every other day

It makes no difference to such countless women really

If there is a day marked in her favour

Using her name politics is played

Institutions have events and clubs have parties

Felicitating and celebrating in the name of womanhood

When will lives of every female child truly change

As a mother or the daughter or the sister

Maybe there is a recognition and sweet words

from your family and friends for a day or so …

Her life is a mere existence in making through each day and night…

What a day like this going to matter to her.

Really not much.

She is out in the open vulnerable and bare.

Bounded by duty imposed without a right

Carried on in the throes of life and living.

Praying a day will dawn when every life matters.

Where every child is born and raised with love

For the future of this world belongs to them.

Empathy :  The Unique Gift of Being Humane.


Empathy is about inclusivity and expansivity…
In thought & understanding in action.
In applying the sensitivity to the needs of the another in pain.
In doing without expecting in return
In feeling a oneness in spirit

Empathy speaks through heartfelt words
And kindred souls.
When empathy speaks it channels the thoughts to kindness and compassion.
Empathy speaks at times without words
From one heart to another
Empathy instils hope in the being when all hope has left.
Empathy operates with the goodness of nature and denotes the goodwill of nurture.
Empathy is a feeling, a sensing, a knowing
whose true measure is undefined and uncontained.

At times it springs forth unexpected.
And at times needs be cajoled to manifest from within.
As in the throes of life and living
Empathy at times does the disappearing act
But humans are endowed with the sense of empathy in the being.
Law of nature balances itself by nurturing empathy in the human lives.
For that is what makes up the uniqueness of the species.

A few traits that are empathy driven …

  • You have a strong sense of intuition
  • You feel and sense another’s feelings.
  • You are sensitive and receptive.
  • You prefer the positive in and around you.
  • Being in crowded places overwhelms you
  • You avoid negativity from all quarters.
  • You can easily tell when someone is telling stories or lying.
  • You enjoy the calm of peaceful environment
  • You enjoy the beauty of art and mellow music.
  • You find having time alone to recharge helpful.
  • You may feel vulnerable at times due to being extremely sensitive.
  • You may be a very large-hearted & generous.
  • You tend to feel refreshed in natural surroundings.
  • You may find yourself listening more than talking.
  • You may have an evolved sense of awareness of your surroundings.

Do you identify with all or even some of

them and if so feel glad that you are

empathic. as being so can be tuned to

become your source of inner strength.

Empathy can be seen as a gift of being humane! Respect it! Value it! Nurture it!



Thriving In The Winds of Change

In a world of kneejerk reactions

And sense gratifications

It is no wonder that most of us are lost

In finding our sense of being. 

In fact this very cluelessness 

Is what the media manipulates

As we grapple with trust, faith

And a whole lot of values and emotions

That seem to get all juggled around

As per the  conveniences of the moment.

We are living in the crosswinds of time 

Where we are unable to flow in trust

As the winds of change blow hot and cold.

Life takes on a different meaning 

Sometimes in path u cant identify your being.

In such moments of chaos and confusions 

Put Your inner compass to test in trust 

It will never lead you astray!



On Kindness

A kind thought, a kind word a kind deed changes the energy equation of matter across dimensions.

Sharing kindness is integral to replenishing  life and living… 
Start with one kind expression to the next person you meet and let the ripple begin from you…

Be kind it always makes a difference..
