If you trace my footsteps they’ll lead you towards the mountains,amidst the mist,away from the chaos of ideality. If you follow them further, you’ll find yourself near the sea of hope,edged by the sands of time,under the moon of tranquility. If you trace them a little more,you’ll end up amidst the ruins of a battlefield,a battlefield of insecurities, complexes,and weaknesses. If you still have the courage to further walk by me you’ll see yourself fading into my traces,merging away into the faces of reality. The footsteps will now seem stray. And then you will meet ‘you’,not me. Because ultimately there is no other,you are always meeting yourself.
The thing is the world lives in grief. It longs for happiness,happiness that is just an illusion. Happiness is the death of grief,but grief still wants happiness.So,what keeps us away from happiness is actually what longs for it.
We are all parts of stories we share , stories we wish to tell,stories we hide or stories we ignore. We live in stories and die with them.Our roles, characters, incidents and duration in each story is decided by factors like destiny and fate. Once our purpose of entering into this gigantic hoax of happy, funny, confusing or tragic collection of stories called ‘life’ is served, we make an exit. Some of these stories die with us,while some continue to live even after us, outshining death or end. So technically it is not us, but our stories that define us.
At the end,we are all stories,so rather than grumbling about stories we aren’t a part of, lets focus on making ours worth a read.
Memories haunt. Realizations groan. Conceptions collide. Expectations are buried. Thoughts clash and dreams are killed.
Certainly there is no battlefield as cursed as the mind.
Dear wordpress family,
We leave something of ourselves behind with every person we love. A part of ourselves stays with them even when we go away. And there are things in us that we can find only when we turn back the pages of life and return to them. And I love you all,so a part of me will reside in you, even after I leave. Keep it happy and keep it alive within yourselves until I return to you all.
This journey has been an amazing one,and that too because of you all. Who knows what tomorrow unfolds? So I want to thank each one of you for being a part of my journey in the world of writing,before I become lesser active. Words fall short to describe the profound impact you all have in my life.💔

Time changes. Bonds break. Smiles fade.Lives complicate. People leave.
‘What remains then?’
‘Chilly winds blowing amidst smiling faces,fairy lights glimmering across skyscrapers, snow covered aveneus, air filled with laughter and joy, aroma of freashly baked cookies and pies lingering in the air,presents…I just love Christmas’, said the child while unboxing the gifts.
While somewhere in the corner of the street,’ bone chilling winds freezing my face,snow by covering pavements taking away my only place to sleep,mocking smiles judging my tattered blazer,extreme cold making it difficult to breathe, empty stomach groaning and eyes hooked to delicious food that I can’t buy..is this the spirit of christmas? whispered a voice.
Different people have different notions of christmas, for me christmas is family time, laughter and joy,and presents ofcourse!
What is Christmas for you?
‘Her smile was as calm as the moonlight that lights up the dark’,she said.
‘Where is she now?’,
‘Where the moon is,among the stars’
I live in a world,
Where hearts are made of shooting stars,that illuminate smiles.
Where minds are composed of birds flying high,free from constrains.
Where tears are made of fire,not a symbol of weakness.
Where emotions form galaxies,that contain everything.
Where kindness is everywhere and cruelty is nowhere to be found.
Where destiny is the same for all,
Where time favours all.
Where there is no ‘me’ and no ‘mine’,
Where I am you and you are me.
I live in a world,
Where reality is just an illusion,
I live in a world
Of my dreams.
Peace can not exist without distress. Peace depends on distress for its survival. It is distress that controls peace,it’s presence and it’s absence. Peace is thus muted by distress. What is peace then? An illusion or a mere lie?Distress hustles and bustles to bring peace. Peace finally comes. Peace comes after destruction. Peace comes after deaths. Peace comes piece by piece. Peace is thus unstable,peace is fitful ,peace is dead. But we all want peace,even if it means creating distress for others. Distress on the other hand is constant,it makes us feel alive, it tries hard and hard to bring peace,to become peace. This wobbly nature of peace makes me wonder, is peace really peaceful? Actually in life, there’s no peace and no distress.You can never ever be either at peace or at distress what you can do is just BE at the moment.
