Love for me is…

self-love. I believe it is the purest form of love. Only when we can love ourselves, can we pass on the love to others. And i believe its not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself and make your own happiness a priority, because it is necessary. Also, if one does not feel good about  oneself, it is hard to feel good about anything else.

As they say, “Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.” (more…)

Blissful it was for sure! 🙂 ❤

And amongst the many fairs & expos, the one thing I love most is the book fairs. (more…)

I love Social Media. It has enriched my life in many ways. Keeping in touch with friends in all corners of the world has never been this easy and this instantaneous. Sharing and propagating an idea or thought has never been this convenient.

But, of late, I’ve been struck by the realization that all this ease and convenience has made us lazy. We are gradually becoming a generation of clickers. When I use the word ‘We’, I’m including myself since I know that I too am guilty of aiding the creation of noise on the internet.

Social Media has managed to manufacture a whole breed of Armchair Activists. Any issue, be it political, religious, social or cultural, creates a Tsunami of opinions and an army of protestors. In the earlier days, if standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square was a symbol of protest…
