Making Every Drop Count !

"You never know the worth of water until the well runs dry"
Imagine, a hot summer day and you're running errands exhausted, and would give anything for a sip of cold water to refresh you. Now, imagine a similar scenario- but now, there's no water left on the planet. What would one want to consume to refresh oneself? It's a scary thought, which we are quick to dismiss giving an excuse that the situation is still a long way to go! Well, that's where we are wrong! 
Out of all the water on Planet Earth, only 2-2.8% is fresh, drinking water. This small percent which currently sustains all life forms is fast depleting. Places such as Cape Town in South Africa have already run out of water. Several other cities are already heading towards this sad situation. Rajasthan, interiors of rural Maharashtra and Bihar face drought like conditions every year. Water conservation requires the efforts of each and every human being. Tiny steps towards saving water daily will help t…


You've got to feel something completely
In your heart, till it explodes
Only then will it leave you.
Be it love, be it pain,
Hope or jealousy,
A person.

And then you feel liberated,
A light hearted feeling.

Life As You See It

Ever wonder why, when you see waves lashing against a rock,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is?

When you see the orange sun setting behind the clouds,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is.

When you see a freshly bloomed flower with sparkling dew drops,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is.

When you experience the warmth of the sun on an extremely cold day,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is.

When you see a mild red sun, rising in the horizon,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is.

When you see a bird feeding its fledglings,
You are reminded of how beautiful Life is.

A miracle in itself,
Life is beautiful.
Maybe we complicate it,
With expectations and ambitions.


Sometimes you wait, and then wait some more,
"Be patient", they say.
"Good things come to those who wait", they say.
But the wait leads to expectations,
Expectations spread like weeds,
Dis allowing roses to bloom.

Then one fine day, 
You're jolted out from your reverie,
Cause you're in the midst of the very dream,
Living it. 
Observe. Be grateful.

Of Almosts

Neither complete nor uninitiated,
Know that feeling of being in between?
Almost best friends,
Almost promoted,
Almost in love,
Almost finalized holiday plan,
Almost committed,
Almost reaching the destination,
Of Almosts. 
The world teaches you black & white early on,
But it's the greys you've got to learn to recognize later.
Not just recognize but to accept.
Cause you can't fit a "grey" anywhere,
Neither here nor there.
And you'll learn to unlearn,
That every story has not only a beginning & an end,
But also, a grey in-between!
