Uncharted Territory

There are times when I don’t know what to write. Much like the times when I can’t figure out what to do, which option to choose and which to forego.

Difficult times. running away isn’t an option. Every other door is closed. Desperately trying to figure out where the window might be…

Funny thing about making decisions (life changing ones) is that you know once you give in, you are done. There is no going back, no do overs. That is what makes it all the more challenging.

But the real question here is to see how long can you avoid the inevitable.

The quest of the unknown continues…

PS: This is also sort of an apology for not being regular with my posts. I kinda have been caught up in my own mind! Gonna try to be regular now. Thanks for being so patient with me.

Much love ❤

The Real Neat Blog Award

Ok so after much procrastination and accumulation of a few award nominations, I finally decided to write my acceptance speech…err post! I have been nominated by one of my most favorite bloggers Noir for *drumrolls*….The Real Neat Blog Award!!


Well thank you so much Noir for thinking that I should be the one to get this award. I do try to keep it clean and tidy! 😉

You guys should check out her blog, she writes in the most interesting manner about History, love and other stuff, poetry as well. Trust me you will find a lot of good writing there.

Also do read the post where she nominated me, she has written some amazing things about me! 😀


And now I present to you the copy-pasted Rules:

1) Put the award logo on your blog.

2) Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3) Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4) Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

5) Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Now here are the questions which I have to answer:

1) You have $1 million and 24 hours to spend it. What do you buy?

I would like to buy a big company. Maybe a publishing house too! *grins*

2) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

Australia. (I want to see koalas and kangaroos hanging out in my backyard!)

3) Do you prefer to blog on your phone, tablet or computer and why?

I prefer my laptop to publish and edit posts as it is easier and more user-friendly. For commenting I generally use my phone. For reading, either.

When I walked the ramp for my college fest. 😀

5) What job did you want to have when you were a child?

Animal Doctor (didn’t even know back then that they are called Vet!)

Yes. This is the only place where I forget all the other things going on in my life! (even if only for a while.)

The More You See, The Less You Know

Have you ever wondered, if we wouldn’t have been living this life, then where we would have been?

This question strikes almost every inquisitive mind once in a lifetime.

Perhaps the question is wrong in itself. Instead, we should ask ourselves, are we really where we actually belong?

Are we there yet?

Thought provoking thought, isn’t it?! It’s quite amusing to wonder about as well. This would all make sense only if someone found the answers; if not all, then at least some of them.

As someone aptly said:

“the problem is not the problem; the problem is our attitude towards the problem.”

Hence, try changing your attitude once, who knows, you might finally find that all your answers were lying around in front of you – exactly where you have been looking (too closely to even notice) before.

Another Drama

There are times when you feel you are going in the right direction. However slow you might be going, but you are going to get there. Then suddenly, boom! Something happens, you see something, you feel it’s a sign, and everything you have been doing till now feels wrong. So wrong, that even you yourself start questioning the path you have taken.

Why isn’t there a better way to know for sure that yes! Yes, you are on the right track? It has had been so difficult to take that decision already, of moving on, of forgetting the past (only been trying, not succeeding) that now anything which even hints that all this has been for nothing, sends me into a frenzy.

It scares me now. How many times is history going to repeat itself? I’m tired of the games destiny has been playing with me. My life must be a cosmic joke to the universe! Whenever I feel, ‘all right now, this is it.’ At the exact same moment, life throws another curve ball. The drama continues.

After all Shakespeare was right:

“All the world is a stage and all the men and women merely players.”

Let’s just keep playing our roles.

Que sera, sera.


Have you ever experienced something which felt unreal? Ever felt what happened in reality was like a dream? I did. The past few days went by so quickly that I didn’t even get a chance to pause and ponder that what is going on?! Like something which was forced over me. Some kind of evil power at work. i wasn’t able to think or use my head properly. Like it was some sort of dream and reality was different. I had lost my senses. Living in a bubble. Experienced another world, a different zone altogether. It was so creepy now that i think about it. How could i possibly let it happen? What made me blind? What made me paralyzed? What made me stop using my brain?

The whole matter went about in front of me like it was some sort of motion picture and i was a mere spectator. Now i want to slap myself for letting it happen in the first place. I wish i could go in time and fix everything, stop myself from doing what i accidentally let happen, just erasing everything i could. It just feels like the worst nightmare of all times. What was it? I was acting on some kind of imagination? Some fragment of my imagination popped out of my head and started dancing in front of me that i couldn’t judge right from wrong, truth from lie, real from imaginary! It felt just like I was hypnotized and someone else was controlling my actions and my brain as well. Surreal.

What could possibly be the logical explanation behind all this? I still am in shock; unable to believe it was all real. Such kind of incidents are not supposed to happen to good people. But then who made that rule? Who decides such stuff? Where and what is the truth? The quest continues…
