Read With Me: The 10 Books I Am Reading In 2017

Ever since I started my own marketing agency, there’s one thing that I really haven’t been able to get back to – reading. No matter how many times my mother gets me books from authors I was obsessed with before, there is absolutely no way I am able to ‘take out time’ for uninterrupted reading….

What’s age got to do with it?

“You’re not old enough to say something like that.” “Before we move ahead, how old are you exactly?” “You’re in your 20s’! That’s it?” “When you talk it doesn’t seem like you’re a 20-something.” To be honest, these questions are just as irritating as asking for my sexual preferences while I’m just signing up on…

Forever (or not)

“Life is fragile, handle it with a prayer.” Amidst all the posts talking about the Nepal earthquake – how many people died, how many building collapsed, what remains, what doesn’t and what’s being done to help the people there, you’re often left to wonder, is there any such thing as certainty? Browsing through the various…

Life is all about ‘your’ choices

“Life is the sum of all your choices” – Albert Camus Even though there are many who believe they are just playing with the cards life dealt them, life is actually what we make of it. The direction (or ambiguity) of our lives is determined by the choices we make every day. Big or small,…

Guts over fear

“Life is a roller coaster ride. Scream or enjoy the ride.” Whoever said that life isn’t easy, is absolutely right. It is that roller coaster ride that you can’t excuse yourself out of. It is that ride that doesn’t come with a set of safety instructions. You just need to do what you have to…

Acknowledge

There are innumerable times when one does everything they can to make another human feel good – friends or foes; they’re human after all and you think making them feel good is something you’re bound to do. But all this while, keeping ‘you’ and everything that relates to you on the back seat, did you…

The twenty something

Is nothing but, AWKWARD. “Growing up is overrated.” A saying we have all heard innumerable times before, but never believed in until we actually grew up. Sounds a bit complicated? Well, that is what growing up is – complicated. An adult is basically someone who has developed fully – physically and mentally. In other words,…

Date or wait?

There is one thing that I have realised over time, I’m really bad at dating. Well, not all that bad when it just starts but pretty pathetic when I realise it isn’t what I want. Today, the word ‘date’ can send shivers up my spine in less than fraction of a second; something that even…

The independent woman

“Who is she?” Depending on what you’re looking for, she could be just about anyone around you – probably the woman standing beside you or the one who just walked past. Here’s a definition that comes to my head almost immediately.. An independent woman is the one that lives by her own rules, likes to…

Daydreaming

Daydreaming has a bad rep in this world and no matter how many studies get published, it continues to maintain its position in the list of things non – productive people do. Daydreamers are often equated with degrees of laziness. These are those everyday people who you write off as Major Tom or space cadets…
