I’m Not God-fearing #SoulfulSunday

For a long time, I used to believe that praying means asking God for things. Things that made my life good and happy. Then one day some years ago, I realized if there is a god he or she doesn’t need my telling what I want. God would know everything.  Why would I pray to […]

Fiction Monday – 38

Hello writers! Welcome to the thirty-eighth edition of Fiction Monday. “Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.” ~Jane Yolen It’s the same old advice that keeps […]

What is the point? #SoulfulSunday

Sometimes I stumble upon this question. After all, what is the point? Because life is so messed up on so many levels and beyond a point, we humans can’t even make sense. Look at the events that transpire in the world every day. There is no rhyme or reason.  Why some people are poor and […]

Happy Place #SoulfulSunday

Life is a mix of this and that. Sometimes life resembles a pile-up crash on the highway. But we need to keep moving forward irrespective of how disastrous it appears.  To keep moving forward we need to fill our head and heart with happy thoughts and positive vibes. Especially, when our life goes through one […]

I Don’t Have A Niche! #SoulfulSunday

When I created my first blog, Void Thoughts, in 2008 it was to document the random thoughts that strolled my mind.  I wasn’t blogging per se. Neither was I a blogger. In 2014 I gathered the courage and started publishing posts with the intention of connecting with other bloggers. I gradually accepted myself as a […]

Let it go #SoulfulSunday

“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” ~Anonymous It’s normal to feel angry. But holding on to anger – that’s a different matter.  Sometimes I feel this incredible anger from within. And often it is directed at someone else, originated from some undesirable memory. I’m not saying this […]

It doesn’t have to make sense always! #SoulfulSunday 11

I don’t think of myself as a profound writer. Nothing I write is of a ‘must-read value’. I don’t earn through my writings either. I tried that but it’s not for me. I am at peace with writing these flawed pieces that serve no purpose whatsoever to others but compels me to write rather than […]

What Stops You? #SoulfulSunday

I am a person with many aspirations. I want to be a writer. I want to restart my career in software development. I want to do many more things before the final adieu. There was a time I used to feel sad that I wasn’t working. After a couple of attempts, I went on to […]
