There’s something about solitude……

There’s something about loneliness and solitude that pulls me towards itself. It is something that has no description whatsoever. You need to have a fair amount of first-hand experience in order to understand it. To be very honest, solitude is more of something that can only be felt, it’s pretty much intangible. It can’t be described graphically or even in words.

Powder, Powder everywhere……

It’s a common fact that drug abuse is on an all-time high in India. However, the true extent of the proliferation of drugs is still unknown to many. According to the data shared by the Narcotics Control Bureau, there are nearly 70 million drug abusers in India. A majority of the drug abusers are concentrated in the states of DELHI, Punjab, Dharamshala and Goa. Drugs are also smuggled into India through the Rann of Kutch in Gujarat and from the areas near the Wagah Border in Punjab as well.

It’s all a bit complicated….. :)

Gone are the days when people used to write a 1000 word long love letter in order to express their love.

Love used to be a relatively simple affair in those days ( I’d certainly like to believe that loving someone was far less tricky in those days than it is in the 21st century).

Cut,cut,cut…..

I guess, all of us have seen the war of words that became the front-page headline of every National daily in India. It was about the rift between the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the producers of Udta Punjab, a film based on the rampant drug use and abuse in the state, slugging it out amidst mud-slinging, all of which is gleefully finding its way into the various forms of media. But, in all fairness, the issue/problem around which the debate was supposed to revolve was completely lost. Continue reading “Cut,cut,cut…..”

Breaking the Shackles: part-2

‘It is not the disability that defines you, it’s about dealing with the challenges the disability presents you with’.

Today, when I look at myself,I witness sheer darkness surrounding me. I hold myself responsible for throwing myself into a dark prison of disabilities from where neither can I be freed and nor do I have the courage to walk further. But with the passage of time, I somehow realized that whatever has been lost can be regained. I realized that I actually stand a chance of breaking the shackles of the limitations and rise above all odds. My disability has nothing to do with my capabilities and potential.
