Live Life Lovingly!


You and I

When you take a step
And hold my hand
As we dance as one
Listening to the tunes
Of our beating hearts.

Moving to the melody
Sensing the synchrony
Sharing the love
Spreading smiles.

Without a word…
We know for sure
Whatever comes along
We can make it all right
However lost we may seem
We will find our way
Yes, you and I.

Sharing this immensely fulfilling read of stories which came my way today!

  • Once, All villagers decided to pray for rain, on the day of prayer all the People gathered but only one boy came with an umbrella.


  • When You throw a baby in the air, he laughs because he knows you will catch him.


  • Every Night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next

Morning but still we set the alarms to wake up.


  • We Plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.


  • We See the world suffering.

But still, we get Married.


On an Old Man’s shirt was written a cute sentence
‘I Am Not 60 Years Old.., I Am Sweet 16 with 44 years Experience.’


Faith is a certainity & trust is a true measure in hope that comes with a knowing confidence of the unknown which is what brings forth the bonds in a boundless love that warms the heart and soul when a life is lived with a never say die attitude !

So keep the faith

Keep the trust in belief

Keep the hope alive in life

Keep the love in the heart always

Keep the attitude of gratitude going strong.



In Striking A Balance!

Ego matters!

Ego is a sense of self-identity

Between being an asset and liability the ego drives our being.

Unmindful and ungrateful often times as such is its way!

It can interfere just as much as it can be indifferent to the being

It can alter goodwill and stall humility from expressing itself

It can change the words we were meaning to speak

It can halt a chance to commune with others

It can steer a dialogue to a monologue

It can become a bone of contention

It can rob us of cooperation and collaboration

And yet all this while a sense of ego can be a source of self-esteem

It can help a person from crumbling in a crisis

It can create a curiosity to know and acquire

It can be a strength of support in times of dire need

It can propel us to do more & achieve more

Your Ego can be your trusted aide

For it knows you more than you ever can.

It is born with you from your first breath

And plays on its course till your very last.

So the question is not about banishing but of balancing.

In striking a chord of balance between the states of being.

Mindful words from a heart full of grace,

Can be a precursor of changing ways.

A respect and regard for another’s perspective

Appreciation and value for others much as one’s own!

A few reflections on striking a balance

Accept that your ego is like your shadow

It follows where ever you go

It creates hurdles in your deeds

It can doubt and induce fear

Simply trust with your loving self

For it’s your internal guide

That leads from the heart

To let you see and know

Who you truly are!

Let your love meet your fears

It will understand the power of love

Choose to be loving and considerate

Change your track to being compassionate

Choose to avoid loose talk

Choose the virtue of generosity

Choose to be inclusive and expansive

Choose to admit your mistakes

Choose to see the world beyond the self

Choose to take your self lightly

Choose the freedom of laughter

It unshackles the chains of self-restraint

Let the self, express and entertain itself!

So allow the ego to a little space but make sure it knows its space.

Allow it to be a part of you but don’t allow it take the whole of you.

Transcending the Ego is the aspiration,

For every religion speaks of this very transcendence…

From trivial and baseline pursuits to higher consciousness.

Ego can be a tool for survival but it can be a weapon of mass destruction!

Transform it into self-improvement manoeuvre it to reconstruction.

In every deed of Giving the ego cannot be far behind for, to give itself seems so full of itself. The Giving means there is something to give an upper hand a stake a superiority if nothing else a contentment of a fulfilment. So to give seems a little egotistical in all its glorious ways.

Yet there is a transformation in every act of giving, that finds its path in the journey towards transcendence .



Strike a pose

Stir swirl and swivel your passionate self. 

Just dance your heart out!

Body shaming has to stop!

Yesterday I happened to revisit this very strong yet contemplative piece of writing by my dear mother.  And I knew I just had to request her to share this because of its significance as much as the sensitivity of content which I felt is very relevant to the times we live in.

My mother writes a lot on and off  and I want to share this as I feel she should put out her writings in a blog but she simply hasn’t done so yet for reasons best known to her. So while I try convincing her to write and share more, here is this post from her that touched my heart💙💚💙


Love All!  

Making someone feel badly about the way they look is the worst thing that one can do to another individual. It has the power to make someone feel unlovable. It creates so many insecurities and unwanted feelings. That is something we shouldn’t do or inflict upon anyone.
Body shaming has to stop. We have to stop tearing people down just because they don’t fit to  the standards created by another in the first place. We also have to stop judging people based on their appearances. There is no meaner phase of being than hating oneself for the looks and it is not fair that we are pushing people to that point. We need to be accepting of all body types.

We need to encircle each other rather than bring each other down and we have to understand that every one is different, both physically and mentally. Anjana

We are created to be different, and we need to learn to love those differences.

Body shaming, a term that has become all too popular recently because humans are obsessed with appearances. We criticize the way that others judge us yet never hesitate to pass comments on others in a sarcastic friendly manner. We have separated ourselves into categories based on the way we look and it is wrong.

Effects of body shaming

What people don’t understand is what body shaming really does to an individual. It gradually breaks their confidence. Instead of holding their head high — they scan the floor because they don’t want people to notice them. Instead of feeling beautiful, their self worth decreases and feel like an alien in their  own skin.

Body-shaming is a serious issue that’s secretly and silently ruining the lives of many out there. It’s high time we addressed it. And equally so for both women and men and children.
Those who are born fit or beautiful or intelligent didn’t do anything great to achieve it . It is the way they  are born genetically.

What use is physical beauty if the mind is ugly? Let’s learn  to value individuals for the values  they hold,  their character, their goodness and compassion, their talent and in general as a fellow human being who are all equal to one another.
As it is the society has created large gaps based on caste, creed, status and richness.  On one side as educated and civilized people we are trying to eradicate them and on the other side creating new dividers between individuals.

Respect and value individuals for what they really are.
Instead if seeing others as

Being short or tall,

Being fair or dusky,

Being fit or fat,

Being beautiful or ugly

Being rich or poor

Being modern or simple

Let’s learn to see others as

Being kind or cruel,

Being adaptive or adamant,

Being compassionate or egoistic

Being selfless or selfish,

And above all

Are they humane enough ?

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

Nature need not have to create so many different species to co exist, it could have  easily made an assembly line of similar looking robots.

Value the differences.

That is where beauty is hidden.
Love all.



Poems & Emotions 

Poems & Emotions 

Is there a dividing line 

Where both can stand apart 

Poems are thoughts from feeling

In sensing is the emotion 

Poetry cannot be senseless 

For that would make it neaningless. 

Even a limerick puts a lot of heart out in rhyme.

To feel and sense the humour  in just fives lines.

Trust the verses to see you through life and living.

A rainy day or lazing with a book in the sun.

Writing is a pleasure reading is a joy. 

Emotions dance in reading through the verses.

And the feelings wonderfully embedded

In the thinking between the words and spaces. 

Yes like us, emotions and poems are inextricable   by far…

There is no one without the other.
