Enjoy the journey...

        Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.

Her eyes...

The eyes are one of the most powerful tools a woman can have. With one look, she can relay the most intimate message. After the connection is made, words cease to exist.

Her walk...

Her walk is like a shot of whiskey. Neat and strong and full of purpose. And so many underestimate her punch.

Many more colours....

I'm a multi-faceted woman and person, like all women are - there's no black and white. We have shades of grey in the middle. And even many more colours that other people don't see!

Here I am...

The night is calling, I have to go
The wolf is hungry, he runs the show
He's licking his lips, he's ready to win
On the hunt tonight for love at first sting
Here I am
Rock you like a hurricane (Are you ready, baby?)
Here I am
Rock you like a hurricane!!

- Scorpions.

I am proud...

Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. 

I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I'm tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become. 

-Johnny Weir

Toogu Manchadalli...

Swinging together
Leaning over his beloved,
As Shyama speaketh sweet words into her ears
Turning scarlet, blushes, a demure Radha
Twining the pallu of her saree onto a finger,
Pressing to her cheeks, the tip of her long, dark plait,
She casts at him, coy looks, batting her eyelashes, thick.
Resting her face over his chest, broad
Wrapping around his neck, her slender arms
As her swollen lips brush against his,
A gentle sigh, in pleasure, out she breathes
A flame of passion ignite their hearts
Whilst the roguish pallu slips and drops
Becomes the skies, the earth
Become the earth, the skies
A warm treat of milk in a cup, silver
Pleasure serves those lips that quiver

Whilst the moon inches toward Yamuna
Love blossoms, blooms, stretches far afar
In ecstasy, their eyes daze
As a row boat sails, smooth, far in gaze
To and fro, swings the swing
Away to an end, euphoric, swaying .

Lyrics from the Kannada movie - Kirik Party (2016)

All you have...

Realise deeply that the present moment is all you will ever have.
- Eckhart Tolle

Burn yourself...

Sometimes you have to burn yourself to the ground before you can rise like a phoenix from the ashes. 

-Jens Lekman

I believe...

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death. 

Robert Fulghum

        जयति महाकाली जयति, आद्य काली माता
जय कराला वदने जयति, जगाता मातु विख्याता

Victory to you, O Mahakali! - To you Victory,
The primordial source of all beings - Victory!
The formidable-looking goddess - To you Victory,
Renowned as the mother of the world - Victory!


My natural bent is to have an overabundance of energy, and motion-capture essentializes your every breath, your every move. Seeing yourself through that mask, you realize how far you can pull back and make the performance even more powerful. 

-Andy Serkis


We are supposed to enjoy the good stuff now, while we can, with the people we love. Life has a funny way of teaching us that lesson over and over again.

"Somewhere, someone is searching for you in every person they meet...

— Unknown Author

Thursday, September 14, 2017

You are....

        You are the stories and incidents that you never tell to anyone.

        You are the thoughts that you get while standing under the shower.  

        You are those memories that won't lets you sleep at night peacefully.

        You are those words that you will never say while 
speaking with someone.

        You are those scars that you always hide from everyone.

        You are those little secrets that you will never let the world know.

        You are everything that you hide under the identity that you call the real you.

[T]here's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away.       

Sarah Kay

All I wanted was to live a life where I could be me, and be okay with that. I had no need for material possessions, money or even close friends with me on my journey. I never understood people very well anyway, and they never seemed to understand me very well either. All I wanted was my art and the chance to be the creator of my own world, my own reality. I wanted the open road and new beginnings every day.

Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. 
Bob Marley

Friday, September 8, 2017


Sometimes, I think of the sun and the moon as lovers who rarely meet, always chase, and almost always miss one another. But once in a while, they do catch up, and they kiss, and the world stares in awe of their eclipse.” 

– Anonymous

Twilight of memory...

If in the twilight of memory we should meet once more, we shall speak again together and you shall sing to me a deeper song.

 -Khalil Gibran

This is love...

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet. 
- Rumi

Don't be angry..

Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards. 
Vladimir Nabokov


Rain is not only drops of water. Its the love of sky for earth. They never meet each other but sends love this way. 


And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

Add colour...

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. 
Rabindranath Tagore

Friday, August 18, 2017


True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness. 

- Petrarch

Never reaching...

        Many never realize they always had the key in their pocket, so they die at the locked door, never reaching deep inside to pull it out.

You won't let me go...

I can't keep running back to you every time you show me some sort of false hope, leading me to believe that it isn't really over between us.
It would so much easier for me if you just would outright say that you aren't going to come back to me anymore.
But you won't, because that's not who you are. You won't let me go, even though you let me go as soon as you knew you had me.

Monday, August 14, 2017

He lives in me...

When he sees me in all and sees all in me, then I never leave him and he never leaves me. And he, who in this oneness of Love loves me in whatever he sees, wherever this man may live, in truth, he lives in me.

-The Bhagwad Gita.

Don't try...

Don't try to play with my head,
because you seriously don't want me to start playing with yours...

Strong women..

“Strong women wear their pain like stilettos. No matter how much it hurts, all you see is the beauty of it.” 

~ Harriet Morgan

Through love....

Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, Through Love all that is copper will be gold, Through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.

Crazy as the other...

What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other... but for two people to have met their match and yet they are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.
-  Barbra Streisand

Behind the most beautiful eyes, 
lay secrets 
deeper and darker 
than the mysterious sea.

Where am I going??

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

Without expectations...

You are only as beautiful as the many beautiful things you do for others without expectation. 
- Janelle Monae

Extinguish my eyes, I'll go on seeing you.
Seal my ears, I'll go on hearing you.
And without feet I can make my way to you,
without a mouth I can swear your name.

Break off my arms, I'll take hold of you
with my heart as with a hand.
Stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat.
And if you consume my brain with fire,
I'll feel you burn in every drop of my blood.

Anticipation of kiss...


He wanted to draw out the moment before the moment- because as good as kissing feels, nothing feels as good as the anticipation of it.

I fell for its spell...

I was free with every road as my home. No limitations and no commitments. But then summer passed and winter came and I fell short for safety. I fell for its spell, slowly humming me to sleep, because I was tired and small, too weak to take or handle those opinions and views, attacking me from every angle. Against my art, against my self, against my very way of living. I collected my thoughts, my few possessions and built isolated walls around my values and character. I protected my own definition of beauty and success like a treasure at the bottom of the sea, for no one saw what I saw, or felt the same as I did, and so I wanted to keep to myself. 
You hide to protect yourself.

Same answers...

    Never give up on someone. Sometimes the answers you are looking for are the same answers another person is looking for. Two people searching together are always better than one person alone.

Essence of beauty..

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.

- Steve Maraboli

I take risks..

"I take risks, sometimes patients die. But not taking risks causes more patients to die, so I guess my biggest problem is I've been cursed with the ability to do the math."

- House M.D.

Don't go....

And he understands. He understands why people hold hands: he'd always thought it was about possessiveness, saying This is mine. But it's about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don't go.      
Cassandra Clare

Connecting threads..

  Everyone knows how to love, because we are all born with that gift. Some people have a natural talent for it, but the majority of us have to re-learn, to remember how to love, and everyone, without exception, needs to burn on the bonfire of past emotions, to relive certain joys and griefs, certain ups and downs, until they can see the connecting thread that exists behind each new encounter; because there is a connecting thread.

Paulo Coelho's, Eleven Minutes

Woman's heart...

        A true gentleman is one that apologizes anyways, even though he has not offended a lady intentionally. He is in a class all of his own because he knows the value of a woman's heart.

Hate and love...

Within my heart is lurking suspicion, and base fear, and shame and hate; but above all, tyrannous love sits throned, crowned with her graces, silent and in tears. 

- William Hazlitt

When the truth is ugly...

When the truth is ugly, people try to keep it hidden, because they know if revealed, the damage it will do. So they conceal it within sturdy walls or they place it behind closed doors or they obscure it with clever disguises but truth, no matter how ugly, always emerges. And someone we care about always ends up getting hurt. And someone else will revel in their pain and that's the ugliest truth of all.

Pull yourself...

    Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.


The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation. 

- Michael Jackson

A part of you...

There's a part of you - the born-again part, your spirit - that's dead to sin. That's why it bothers you now when you sin. The 'wilderness' part of you - your soul - is your unrenewed mind, out-of-control emotions, and stubborn will. 

- Joyce Meyer
