Where did we go wrong?

You know my biggest fear? That one day, I would look at the man my son had become, and wonder what went wrong with my parenting. That, he would be far from the sensitive, loving, generous and honest boy I am raising. That my values, my teachings won’t mean anything. That I was an unsuccessful…

Those 6 months

Do you believe in Astrology and fortune tellers? I don’t. Well except for that crazy fascination with Sun signs during the growing years. Looking up for the best matches; Scorpio goes well with Cancer and Pisces, Leo and Gemini are a bad combo. Apparently. Thankfully, I grew up and learnt that people don’t need the…

Thank You

I am not a poetess and I don’t pretend to be. Just another girl telling what she feels. That someone sitting on her couch, trying hard not to slouch. Thinking how far she’s come, and how life isn’t always about fun. We say thank you when everything goes good. And thank we definitely should. Thanks…

The art of getting high

Disclaimer: There is a lot of profanity used in this post. I feel very passionately about this topic and literally boils my blood every time I think of it. So, I profusely apologize for the language used. I hope you will understand why I did that when you read it and maybe feel the way…

Fight Club

Somebody once called me a popularity w**** (not the exact word used by them, but exactly what was meant), trying to piggyback on social media, spreading lies and trying to get famous. Get famous? Really? I have a paltry 1000 followers, and a few hundreds read my blog post. Sometimes the likes on my posts…

Living with anxiety

I can’t breathe. My heart’s pounding. I look up at my Fitbit and my heart rate looks like I am on the last sprint of my 5 Km run. But, I am sitting on my couch. Or bed. Or at a party. Watching a movie. With my friends. On a holiday. I want to cry….

Lost and Found

I started writing this the morning we found Hela. I haven’t changed it because this truly expresses the despair we felt. It was exactly 20 days since we had lost her. This was the first morning, that I woke up and told myself that I had to get a grip over myself. That no matter…

Tipping the scales

A lot of tough love is coming you way. Sorry, I am not sorry. 😛 I love what I do. I love guiding and being a partner in people’s fitness journey. But unfortunately, that’s not how most people see it as. They forget about the journey and just want to fast forward to the destination….

In the pursuit of happiness

One of the most commonly used hashtag in social media right now? #happiness or #happy or #happyme All of us trying so hard to let the world know that we have one of the rarest commodity. Happiness. Most of us, trying to make ourselves believe that we are happy. Overuse of this word doesn’t make…

Third time lucky

This was supposed to be my third trip to Pondicherry. A trip I wasn’t really looking forward to. One of the main reason: Trip no.2 was traumatic as hell. I came back with a few physical and emotional scars. My friend Tanay, who was one of the good things in Trip no.2 tried to calm…
