Who is an underdog?

Meet Wiggles Our Lionheart Lhasa❤

Animal Rights Awareness Week -June 14-20, 2020

Yes adopt an underdog
But by no means think
That of some sad brown little creature
They come in all shapes and sizes.

Think no less of them
For they are so much more
For they have had it truly tough
Life has been challenging enough.

Resilience and tolerance
Is in their bones
But love is flowing all the same
Through their beautiful hearts.

Some are amazingly warm and loving

Some are fearful & some too friendly
And some a vision of cuteness but all just simply abandoned.
Some are street dogs, with the highest immunity.
Some are just born in a little special way
They are all just as beautiful and have a right to be
Like you or me.

Meet The Happy Faced ‘Buddy ‘of Wiggles.

Meet The Happy Faced ‘Buddy ‘of Wiggles.

There are many that are sadly discarded
By inhuman puppy mills.
Created in the most unethical ways
How can one life torture another so! The bane of humanity
That sees no hope for them.
For they are apparently imperfect
In some odd little way. They may not be the strongest
Or the most beautiful
But that’s what makes them special
Just the way they are!

Meet Tia Our Black&white Beauty

Make some space in your heart
Adopt a dog that needs a home
Every dog gives unconditional love
Reach out your hands for a paw.

Choose to adopt a dog with love.
Pleases don’t buy, you are simply encouraging
This heart-wrenching trade and trafficking
Of million innocent hapless little lives. So much cruelty by so-called human
Please think before you join in.

I implore you to not ask
For a pet of a particular shape color or size or breed. There are many puppies culled because of your unethical desires.
Respect creation and sustain this world
choose to love and adopt a pet.
Take a step to change one life today!

All these beautiful fur babes featured here are our adopted and rescued family and office pets.

My heartfelt plea to adopt an innocent life that needs a home.

A Message of Gratitude.

A Message of Gratitude.

5 years on Word press
A mighty task for me
To stay on, dedicated
To my writings.
But WordPress gives the canvas
To paint my words every day.
It encourages from the background.
Never in your face or intrusive.
But silently keeping tabs,
On every learning curve.
Rejoicing by a share
On every milestone
It has been a journey
Of many learnings
Along the way…

To my fellow writers & readers
Yes, I am no poet
Nor a writer by profession
I started on a lark
To dance with some words
To process my own thoughts
And give vent to my feelings
In a constructive and fulfilling way
And express I did
And continue to do, till date
With all my fellow writers
And readers, love, wishes & support.

We are an ever growing circle
Emerging through our words
In the sharing we have grown
We have eased into each other’s hearts
We may not see one another ever
But we have connected in mutual respect
Of each others creativity.
Though the power of words
Comforted and understood
Accepted and appreciated
One another in our own little ways.
For we all know the power of words
That, one heartfelt word can change a day!

Thank you all for being here and hoping for a joyful journey ahead together for us all.🙏🏼

On Awareness.

Moving in Awareness.

From chaos to clarity

Swimming through it all

From peaks and troughs.

Every thought sets a pattern
In fact in a loop
Of interwoven scenes
Some that seem relatively strange
And some unidentifiable
Every loop jumps and lights up another
In the intersection

Is thought quantifiable at all?
Thoughts come and go
But what if we reflect on our thoughts
Like witnessing our breath, as it goes on
Thoughts may manifest on their own.

When we are mindful of our thoughts.
May be just for a bit of time every now and then
We flow along and cultivate an awareness of its nature
We become gradually mindful of the now.

In time, a sense of connect develops
In conscious awareness of our intentions.
We are creating spaces between our thoughts
And pauses in our reflections.

When shift is known by the mind
And felt in the heart
Then every thing moves
In conscious awareness.

Mystic called Love!

Love is fragile & vulnerable

Yet love is empowering in itself.

What is it about love that we are weakened before it?
And what is about love that we are strengthened by it?
What is this power that love wields over us?
Love hurts and heals all of us, one way or the other.

Love is the most sensed, most quoted, read,
most written and talked about.
Yet the most confusing and complex an emotion to decipher.
Inspite of its simplicity…
There is both calmness and chaos in love.
The ocean of love tides washes you over
Yet one cannot get to the root of love.
For love is a sublime embodiment
Of the essence of creation itself.

Love conquers and connects it all.
But every love story is too unique
To come to any conclusions.
Perhaps we ought to let love be mystical as it is!

Everything is going to be alright

When our lives feels overwhelming

By emotions running a muck

Let us take care to remember

Every thing is going to be alright!

When our words felt lost

They were lost in the incessant chatter

Where we went about creating noise

But never learned to sustain the world.

Yet all is not lost

Hope is here to stay

Let’s truly believe

Every things is going to be alright.

In these times of anxiety.

Let’s keep saying

All is meant to be well

We need to assure ourselves and others

More often than before

Everything is going to be alright!

Breach and Trust🐋

Have you seen the whales breach
In such confidence they soar upward
They even maneuver a twirl
And fall back in complete trust
In the support of the water below.
How beautiful an example can mother nature give
Of unfolding grace in trust and confidence

Much of our lifes story can be just as beautiful.
When it is in a flow like that
When we rise in success with faith
Being completely confident of our purpose
When we surrender in complete unflinching trust
Knowing there is support and love flowing in the roots.

Why are humans rising and touching the stars?
Why are we progressing phenomenally
Yet why are we crash landing at times?
Why are we failing?
While it is the faith in ourselves that may take us upwards
Bu the lack of trust and support for one another brings us down.
Perhaps we need to learn from water
How to be flexible in its fluidity.
To be adaptable in its buoyancy
And then we too can rise again with every fall.

For inspite of every ability we have …
Support from our family and friends
Matter more than we know!

Wouldn’t you agree?

When you have faith in your roots then every leap of faith is of a trustful knowing
That no matter how far you reach you have a home to come back to!

No room for I, Me & Myself

In a world that is literally shrinking globally,
In a world where respect for cultural diversity,
Is paramount to humanity.
In a world where inclusivity is a necessity,
In a world where businesses are adopting empathy driven approach.
In a world where love, kindness and faith is needed much more than ever,
In a world that is changing states quo…

There is need for all of us to come together.
There is need to value connections.
There is need to understand each others vulnerabilities.
There is need to be inclusive in the diversity.

When we move beyond the I
And envision the Us
When we see the world as ours than mine.
When we care to collaborate together,
In mutual respect of the differences
When we acknowledge the strength of unity in the diversity.
When the, Me and Myself
Shifts to Us beyond the Mine.

The world will evolve for the better of all.
Let’s know, how interweaved we are!
For that’s where our true strength lies
In this very interconnectedness.
No matter the distance of space or time.
So, in a world where it is right now
There is no room for the I Me &Myself Anymore.

Sweet moments.


Sometimes life gives you beautiful memories where you least expect it from.
 Or maybe all happens for a reason.
We were meant to meet!


A month back, work took me all the way to China. And while some industry visits were happening as scheduled, a  small moment of connection and conversation resulted in great joy and camaraderie.
Met some very beautiful and loving hearts. We warmed up almost instantly with each other. We shared much about our cultures, our food and traditions.
We spoke to each other from the heart all with the help of a translator app.
It was such a beautiful flowing conversation. We circumvented language barriers although I spoke in English into the app and them in Chinese. It hardly came in the way. By the end of it what mattered was the joy that emerged. The beautiful moments shared will always be treasured in my heart.

Thankful to the useful translator app that made it so simple. And helped create fond memories of that day!

The Gift of Life…

Had shared it earlier in 2016 but will share this again as I believe it is relevant always.

The Gift of Life …

“When I was a little girl I often have witnessed my dear father see and give great value & acknowledge every little good that is or happens, however small they may seem to others. It could be a with a gentle word, a tiny appreciation or a little compliment.

He taught me one of the most important lesson for a lifetime…to notice, respect and reflect on the good in and around us … and to live positively and think of life always as Plus++++es.

Life is beautiful as it is and it is in us to see it so.”

Thirsty?

Thirst is meant to be quenched

A thirst for knowledge .

Is a wonderful start of all learning

But is thirst simply enough to know?

Thirst for knowing must never be coerced…

To truly want to learn one needs

Focus and drive.

Passion and purpose

Patience and perseverance

Analysis and deduction

Attention and retention.

And most of all patience.

Knowledge is wonderful

But knowing is valuable…

For all knowledge does not mean knowing.

As there is always more to learn and unlearn.

Knowledge dances on the edges of true knowing.

And wisdom lies in every bit of knowing.

Master or mastered




Why mind.
Who is the master?
Who is the mastered?

When mind masters you follow

When the mind is mastered you lead.

Want to lead or follow…
The choice rests with you.

Beyond Judgments


Art of living 




Truth is
Life thrives 
In nature

All we need to do
Is to not stunt
But let it bloom.

Only remember
To Nurture life
Move beyond judgements

Without  discrimination
What emerges will be
The truth of the being.

As it was
As it was
As it is
Meant to be!
