Baffled!


Hello all you wonderful people! How many times do we actually do what we want?? how many times do we actually know what we want in life??

 Talking of writing, it was all I wanted to do a few years back!! okay, to some people my writing may be mediocre or below that, but still, I had that innate desire to roam around with a pen & paper & write my thoughts....but I am a physiotherapist today, in the medical field, which although I accept, is very interesting & I like it but is nevertheless far from what I wanted to do intially....
A series of questions baffle me..after you read them I'm sure you too will be baffled after reading them......
Do we actually do what we want to do, or do we do that which we think we want??
what defines, who defines & how does one define what we actually want in life?? how many times do we act on our instincts & how many times do we don't?? How many times are we influenced by what others feel is right for us & how many times do we stand our own ground & be firm on what we want?? when should we be stubborn & when should we not??

Was corruption what the so called 'corrupt' people wanted to do?? were they corrupt always?? .. you'll tell me they wanted money... If they wanted money, they already have loads of it.... then why don't they seem happy??? & are still craving for more money?? more power?? or are they craving to win the love & appreciation of people, by wanting to be popular by remaining in power??? same applies for criminals, terrorists and the so-called 'baddies'....you'll say- who knows?? & maybe in today's  "I, me & myself" world, nobody cares...!!!

I guess, its a bit hazy when it comes to what we want & what we do.... there are so many people involved in a single decision of  ours.. so its unfair & not right to think of only what we want.... isn't it??
who knows, what we say & do may affect others in ways we may have not thought of.... 'think twice before speaking or acting' is what is very applicable!

So how do we choose, what do we choose & when do we choose... is it always based on what the situation at that time, or is it just the way we think??? 

I guess life is an illusion... or a mirage in the desert... the moment you feel you've almost achieved what you wanted, that moment the illusion disappears!!!!!

crazy lifeee...... crazy me & crazy people all around me, crazy world...... wait... didn't i just call everyone 'wonderful' before??? I guess change really is the only constant thing in life.... other things don't last forever.........  :-)

Dream. Imagine. Be Crazy. Be You.

Au revoir!

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Gaurav Ghatnekar - A candid interview with a gifted actor!

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-


Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.


  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
