“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.” 
― William Shakespeare

On a windy & dusty Sunday, I made a trip to a place I had planned to visit since 2013. In spite of being only about 30 kms or so away from where I live, and inspite of passing by the place quite a number of times, I simply could not manage a trip to this place. I guess, things happen only when they are meant to be. And so, one Sunday, I finally stepped inside the Assam Buddha Vihar, a Buddhist monastery perched on a hilltop in Amingaon, Kamrup, Assam.

Is it February already? Where did January go? I am so caught up in things and work and I don’t know what that the first month of the year just flew by and I could not even write a post to welcome the year……sigh! But as I always say, better late than never! 🙂 (more…)

If we were having coffee…

❤ I would tell you how fast everything around me is moving, especially these last few days of 2016. I have so many things to do and so little time. My laziness, especially while getting up in the morning, is adding to the woes :/ (more…)

I am Woman!

The past weekend was kind of a let’s-celebrate-womanhood for me. Today, many people understand feminism as feminazi and I would like to make it clear here that I am all for the former only. Let’s make it clearer with their definitions –

Feminism (noun): the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. (Source)

Feminazi (noun): a term used pejoratively to describe either feminist who are perceived as extreme or radical, women who are perceived as seeking superiority over men, rather than equality(Source)

It’s Magic!

The picture above sums up my thoughts & experiences on being kind and showing love & compassion to the world around me. As my friend Natasha commented on one of my Kindness posts, “…… I feel the power of kindness is really underestimated in our world. It is kindness in our intent, thoughts and actions that really keeps the world going”. (more…)

Some inspirations…..

Kindness has ripple effects. When someone is kind to us, we feel motivated to do the same for someone else. And if we listen to our heart and do so, before getting back to our busy lives with hardly any time for anything, we experience a happiness that warms our souls. (more…)

What a wonderful world!

Thinking about kindness….

Participating in this challenge has made me more aware and witness the kind gestures my fellow human beings show all around me. And at the end of the day, I realise that kindness is, after all, a choice that we make & a matter of the heart; whether we want to be kind or not reflects the person we are.  Sadly, even when kindness is free, within our control and makes us feel great too, but even then some of us cannot be kind enough. :/ (more…)

Sprinkling some kindness!

Being kind, for me, is being kind in words, thoughts and deeds. I feel that it is like sharing something which I have to give away and which the other person delightfully accepts…and every time, I do it with a smile on my face and gratitude in my heart for the opportunity. ❤ (more…)
