The Glass Right Before Us
The Glass Right Before Us

A child is worried about school, a teenager is worried about college, a graduate is worried about getting a job, an office worker is worried about getting a promotion, a boss is worried about profits, parents are worried about their kids. My question is, in this endless cycle of worry, when are we actually going to live? Where are our moments of happiness? The spontaneous trips? Where is a joyful get together with no formalities? Where is a nice dinner date without worrying about time? Or where is the night under a sky full of stars? Where is life? Where am I?...

Second Step Towards Interpretation
Second Step Towards Interpretation

I can proudly say yes, I live; I live to love my work and I work to be in love with my existence. Even in my journey, my soul fuels me up. The only difference it makes is, it never ends; it enables me to take hold of my life. I am an individualist because I cannot work on collective thoughts. This makes me smile when I go to sleep. I do not have to live up to the expectation, which the society wants from me. I live for my work and set my own benchmarks. My passion and efforts are aligned in the direction that define me....

Xeno, The Human Connection
Xeno, The Human Connection

Perhaps, the most heart warming one would be ‘the love at first sight’, when your eyes clash into his, and ‘sparks fly’, how transient and yet sweet does it feel like, when you associate love only to sight? The most flattering would perhaps be, answering a question in the most eloquent way; and the teacher would pass the glance of being impressed, that you couldn't admire yourself any more than that as you would....

First Step Towards Interpretation
First Step Towards Interpretation

Every night, a part of me raised a question, 'You call yourself a man of principles, but really, are you?' I never had an answer. Therefore, rather than deconstructing my life piece by piece I started to do things that made sense to started working as a teacher in an NGO. I thought if I will work honestly and with dedication, I will be of some use to the society. However, my work unfolded a chapter of my life that helped me interpret who I really was....

Experience Life Once Again
Experience Life Once Again

Not everything can be defined in terms of right or wrong. We often use logic as a medium to rationalise. If we are not able to explain something, we dismiss it as illogical. This is how we to restrict our source of ideas, narrowing our mentality. What if we got the chance to experience everything for the first time? What if we were to experience life and things in for just their aesthetic appeal?...

Subconscious: I know, but I don’t know that I know!
Subconscious: I know, but I don’t know that I know!

On a subconscious level everyone is true to themselves. You put your faith in yourself. There is no room for pretense. Usually my words are articulated in a manner that pleases people, my feelings are suppressed, my thoughts are orchestrated. I am not myself; I am not totally honest with myself. Although while I am asleep, I am vulnerable and all my thoughts are in their true element. I dream; the dreams that reflect my inner most thoughts. I talk in my sleep and say things I would not dare to while I am awake. If only I could rely on intuition and not rationality all the time....

Those Moments
Those Moments

Although fortunately there exist moments that fill our soul with hope. And it is no secret, that they make us live each day with gathered courage; just so we see more of those rare hopeful days. Just to familiarize us with the emotion called love in a land full of discrete detestation. Those moments help us prepare to face life. And helps us register the fact that life is not going to be fair, yet somehow it is beautiful....

The Invisible Wall
The Invisible Wall

That is when I started building a wall around me. Yes, the invisible one which almost every single person has, at least once in their life. How’d I construct it? The same way all of us do, with those bricks that are thrown our way when we start to express a little more, when we try to expect more than we should. Scar by scar, brick by brick....
