Business Tales πŸ˜‰

I have a small business. When I say business, I often wonder if there’s a softer word for what I do. I do not feel like a business person: I have read only one book on business and I am stuck on a business course. My savings account has only begun to feel like it….

Chats of 2018: On Language.

Hello! It’s good to be back. Compliments of the season. (By the way, this is ‘compliments’, not ‘complements’. We sometimes see that mistake, right?) Well, this year, someone called me ‘English Advocate’. It wasn’t funny at the time but really, can’t be bad for a compliment. πŸ˜‚ Let’s talk about English and grammatical correctness. ☺️…

Chats of 2018: Of Hair and Expectations.

Hello, reader! Welcome to our gonna-be-so-sweet series on Chats of 2018! I talk to a streamlined group of people with whom I can really talk. My chats are important to me because they are more frequent forms of writing. And when I do it with the right people, who luckily make up most of my…

F’s: On Fear and Failing.

I wrote this on 22nd November. I had MB Anatomy Multiple Choice Questions and Theory the next day. I have edited slightly. *** On Thursday morning, say about 4am, I was lying in bed and in between funny dreams and the reality of classmates revising in my room, I said: ‘I am afraid to wake…

Fickle.

I now often ask people to do what I have recently found hardest. In a chat or at the end of a call, when I say my goodbyes, I often write or say: ‘Be happy and be glad.’ Because somehow, I sense that if they do, if they are truly happy and their hearts are…

Be.

Maybe you should let yourself hurt, let yourself experience pain, and not think that in this evil sorrowful world, saying that you hurt is selfish. Do not think that your pain is frivolous. Maybe you should let yourself cry when the tears sting your eyes. Maybe you should not accept the idea that gives you…

The beauty of these days

I observe that life is mostly beautiful, the times altogether enjoyable, if we look when our eyes are good. I realize that somehow, people are beautiful. In the way they attempt to make a living, in the way they try to make transactions with life. Sometimes they are the leader of the chain, sometimes they…

Just Enough

Truth is, to leave this (the love and companionship I have found) and search as though I had nothing, is not only ungrateful, but foolish.

Picture Perfect πŸ˜‹

Let’s talk about yesterday and the last year, shall we? People, I was posing for pictures! Laughter, how I got the year started. There goes the advantage of family. Secret: My Mum still buys most of the things I wear. I say ‘most’ because you know my age and I know your expectations. What I…

Youth Forever

If I said I am learning to be grateful, I’d say it with some fear that it sounds cliche. But reader, it is true. It is true that it is hard to celebrate the good, to enjoy a moment, and be grateful for it. No one really asks far enough so that I am bare…

Back. 😁

Hello People! So I’ve been off for a long time- almost six months now right?!- and I apologise for it. That’s pretty much why I am writing. To tell you inestimable reader, how sorry I am to have been away and how excited I am to be back on. I had earlier written something I…

Much More

I may have unconsciously internalized the world’s message that the female child has to continually strive to stay in place: prove her worth because it cannot be seen, or is easily forgotten, or is not even there altogether.
