My Story On The Secret Website

57668473-1a9f-47e5-a7cf-7343fd73138c

We have all tried to understand the effect of positive thinking and law of attraction since the movie “The Secret” came out. Over a period of time, I have developed my own understanding of it. Nine months ago, while I was traveling through Rajasthan, I was sitting on the window of an old fort in Udaipur, looking at an aerial view of the valley and the little houses there, contemplating my approach to life. The sun started to set and I felt a calm sweep over me as I looked at the crimson sky,  I realised a couple of things that day. Continue reading “My Story On The Secret Website”

Let’s Save The Humanity Left In Us

I read a terrible news in a news portal today, it painted a horrid picture of what monstrous deeds humanity is capable of, and not for a cause, not for their beliefs and miss believes but just for their own selfish sadistic pleasures. I was feeling deeply disturbed and enraged to the point that I felt my faith in humanity diminishing, but then I came across a post on Facebook shared by a friend, that restored all my faith in humanity again.

He had shared a link requesting contributions on behalf of his ex-colleague and mentor Anurag Bhatnagar whose wife, Puja has to undergo an urgent liver transplant and is currently admitted at Max Hospital, Saket, New Delhi.

It’s so great meeting people who have been tested by life a number of times, but life has still not managed to rob them of their energy or dim their light.

Road Less Traveled By

10 months ago I left a position of marketing manager at a luxury sports travel company where I was heading marketing for North India and I took a travel break.

I always wanted to travel, but I always had reasons to postpone it. I decided I can’t keep waiting for life to hold my hand and take me on adventures. When I first realized that I want to quit my job and decided to take a break and travel before I start looking for another one, my friends told me how it is a huge career risk. In India we don’t appreciate career breaks, they were right, we don’t. Did I want a life in which I had never taken any risks or a career that was at best, safe? NO. I served my notice period, saved some money and started my journey. Continue reading “Road Less Traveled By”
