When I came to this world I was not this tall or this strong. I was not in this shape. I had no shape. I was irregular a boulder if you may. I had no way in life. I was just lying there gathering moss.
Then one day some unknown people came and told that I could do bigger things in life. I could support others, help bring joy to many lives and do more than just gather moss and turn Green.
I thought this was amazing as they took me to a far away land from where I was born. Some unknown place with all these strange looking structures.
There I saw many others who have been gathered like me with their head held high to do good for the world, to give back for what they had been given.
Then the nightmare began: I was beaten, starved, kept in a dark place, heated till every part on my body, inside and out, was burning. They cut me, broke me to pieces, took away my form and forced me to change to this ideal form that they needed.
It was not just me but countless others. Some like me. Some different than me. But I could tell that all of us had gone through same or similar fate.
They loaded me and took me somewhere I did not know. They dug a hole in the ground. And they stood me up, buried my legs in the ground.
Now I have nails and holes in my body and they put these things called wires all over me. I cannot do anything. I just stand carrying these wires.
Sometimes some kind hearted person puts a paper around my skin. I feel warm there and protected. But soon that paper is torn away or washed by rain.
After all the promises and ambitions here I am standing, carrying the baggage of these wires. Standing in the rain, the heat and the cold while thousands of people pass by everyday trying to fulfill their dreams their ambitions. And the only solace I find now is providing the occasional shade to the travelers and the animals and a place for the tired birds to rest their wings
I think I speak for everyone when I say “Everyone wants to take the window seat on a travel”. For some reason the window seat is always attractive.
I have seen siblings fight on who gets to sit by the window and have overheard people discussing how they want to take the window seat even on air travels.
And I am no different. I want the window seat too. If there is a window seat empty at the very last I will go and take that seat even if I am getting off the bus two stops later.
On one of my such travel by a window seat I had a thought. “What if we are taking a window seat on our life?” Read more
A quick search of the term “personal space” in google greets you with the following result.
So personal space is the immediate physical space surrounding our body.

You know what an earphone is. Those grammatically correct among you might have this urge to say earphones but you get what I mean.
All of us own one. If you have bought a phone or if you just own a phone you have a pair of earphones. Or at least had until those little guys got lost somewhere in this big world or died to natural causes or an accident.
Earphones I believe is just as revolutionary as the smartphone. It allows us to listen to what we like while being in the middle of a crowd without letting anyone around us know about it.
It’s a must have in our current world. Some of you might have earphones (or headphones or airbuds or other variations) in your ear right now which you clearly don’t need it to read this. It has become a culture of some sort to have earphones on your ear.
Cursing. What is cursing? I am not talking about those magical curses that one person puts on the other in a fit of anger. What I am talking about is the uttering of the curse words, those f – words and a – words in English and other curse words that I am confident is present in every language around the world.
Now that we are clear about which cursing we are talking about let me ask you all a question. When was the last time you heard someone curse? If you are not living under a rock, its probably not even been 24 hours.
Another question. When was the last time you cursed? Read more
