I had broken up with her on December 5th, 2015. It had been really tough over the last few months of our togetherness. We had both inflicted too much of pain and chaos in each other's lives. Our relationship would mostly be about both of us blaming and grousing how the deeds of other one … Continue reading Only Those Who Are Already Hurt End Up Hurting Others.
Yukti and I met first when we were both small and stupid. We used to go to the same school in Hanumangarh. She used to top the class every year, while I used to struggle somewhere at 8th or 9th rank. I am not much aware of the convention followed these days, but back in … Continue reading Nugget-34: Meetup With Childhood Best Friend.
I was that intransigent son, who gave his parents a really tough time in his teenage. Probably it was adolescence or my company, which had hit my consciousness and sanity.

And, today is the seventh day and … Continue reading Miracle Morning #7: 5 October 2017 -The Book That Did Not Pan Out. Twice.
I love to read. And, with almost every successive book that I complete I find very many more reasons to further fall in love with these priceless creations. I mean, I simply can't express in words the ways in which my life has transformed, by simply trying to inculcate into my life several lessons that … Continue reading Miracle Morning #6: 4 October 2017 – This Book Helped Me Give Up My Hate.
Well, what a fantastic start to the day! Woke up just in time by 4:30 am, got some water, performed some stretching and exercising, and then got on with my 5-minute meditation ritual. And, done with all of that, all set to begin with my reading ritual by 4:50 am. Wuhhoo! Yesterday I was an … Continue reading Miracle Morning #5: 3 October 2017 – The Tough Choice Between Heart And Head.
Ah! I messed up. I was supposed to wake up before 5 am so that I could get on with my miracle morning rituals by 5. But, apparently, I just woke up three minutes ago at exactly 6:01 am. I guess it was because I got late in going to sleep last night. I did … Continue reading Miracle Morning #4: 2 October 2017 – Flashback Into A Well-Spent Yesterday.
Around fourteen months back, I used to be a part of a cohort of thirteen people. Four guys and nine girls to be precise. And, at the same time, I also used to share a camaraderie with a number of other people who I still am a neighbour to.
