    Having faith in your work, even when everyone doubts you takes a lot of strength.
    To keep going, even when you are alone.
    They say, time changes.
    Though not every time for the worse.
    Sometimes even for the better.
    So have faith.
    No situation is final.

    After a long time I have been feeling that I am right where I need to be.
    Not to say, I don't feel like achieving anything anymore or that I don't want anything else.

    I do want to do a lot with life.
    But even more than that, I know that I will get there when its time.

    Just doesn't mean I'll hate and loath every moment of where I am now.
    All things happen in its due course of time.
    But how you live, when you are waiting patiently after working hard for your dreams to become a reality will ultimately be known as your story.

    Like Naina would say to the Bunny in each one of us -
    " life mein kuch na kuch toh chootega hi.
    Toh jahan hain, wahin ka maza lete hain."

    P.s. - If you don't know this movie, what are you even doing with your life????

    As much as you'd like to rewrite your past, erase your mistakes and maintain a clean slate.

    Don't forget, the story is still going on...

    You really cannot forget that as tempting as it is to wanting to change what has been your past, you still hold the pen.

    You will have to continue to write your story, today and in the future.

    You may not be able to re-write your past,
    But you can decide and act wisely on the present situation.

    I was told that the musician ,
    That once enjoyed and loved in his art.
    But doesn't play anymore...
    I asked them, "Why?"

    They told me -
    He enjoyed music.
    It gave him happiness.
    Fed him and his family generously.
    Helped countless people as well.
    But the people closest to him couldn't bear
    to see that.
    So, when they betrayed him in the most unethical way.
    He was made to think the cause of it all was his art.

    I still could see the glitter in his eyes.
    Oh, how he must have loved being on stage!
    Now I can only imagine that.

    An ode to all those who had to abandoned their art because unlike today, the world was very restricted back then.

    Saving Yourself /

    We sometimes think that people deserve multiple chances, that they'll change someday.
    That something, some random day will be different.

    But it doesn't work that way, does it?

    If you are going to self-sabotage your own happiness, just to make sure the other person isn't hurt by it , then no matter how hard you try to make things works it will end up making you feel miserable in the end.

    Going that extra mile. Running around.
    Nothing is going to change.
    It will never be a fair deal.
    Atleast not for you.

    So if you can save yourself from all that has drowned you and hurt you, when it happens again.
    I think you won.
    Saving yourself isn't the easiest thing to do every time.
    But it is the bravest one.

    -apurva


    This is applicable to people as well as situations.
    You should choose yourself and your happiness.

    Remember that the greatest songwriter of all time Taylor Swift once said -

    "May your heart remain breakable
    But never by the same hand twice"

    You should feel proud and happy about everything that you have achieved. You are allowed to be happy about the everything you did to get by.

    Be it doing odd jobs, taking extra classes, to taking unknown path while everyone else was having fun. Some of us had the luxury to have fun, while many didn't.
    Just because of that you don’t need to feel bad about the efforts you took to be where you wanted to be.
    And no one should make you feel guilty for that, either.

    You did what you could, with the resources you had.

    That takes courage. The kind that only you know makes sense as you are the one who walked in those shoes.
    No one can tell say how easy it was for you.
    It probably was more difficult than anyone could ever imagine.

    As much as thriving in life and getting every goal accomplished should be celebrated, so should be getting by when things get difficult.

    We all did the best of what we could, with what we knew.

    Quoting Eminem so you never forget,

    "...be yourself man, be proud of who you are.."

    When a part of Section 377 was declared unconstitutional in September of 2018, the LGBTQIA community was overjoyed.
    Three years later, even in 2021 the situation is quite the same.
    Though it’s not criminal offence anymore, the moral policing is still there.

    And I am not talking about the mob attacks or discrimination in public.
    How many of you would really support a friend who comes out of the closet and not make fun of them?
    I don’t even want to talk about the slurs and names people of the LGBTQIA community are called on a daily basis. It’s simply wrong.

    And no, don’t try to justify that.

    I know we grew up in a society that considered any sexual orientation other than a male or female to be a sin. But you blaming that on your conditioning and refusing to change your mindset is exactly the orthodox thinking we grew up observing, and you are making sure that it will continue.

    As an ally to the LGBTQIA community, all I am asking you to do is be open to accepting them as they are. Not change them. Not shame them for being who they are.
    They are still the same person you knew.

    When we are struggling to make sense of everything around in turbulent times, even something that is said in the most nonchalant manner can replay on our minds long after its been said.
    So much so that it can break you down, and make you question, “Is this really who I am? Are the words that are said to me, truly what I am?”
    Just like the words that are said to criticize you can stay with you long after they have been said, so do the kind words of encouragement and hope.
    So, when the war is over, and the dust has settled, I hope you look at your reflection and feel proud for using your words for the good.
    I hope you’ll feel proud for being kind to yourself and others, when our world needed it the most.

    You can never be sure how long the words you said to someone that broke their heart keep playing in their mind. But so do the words of encouragement.
    Choose yours wisely.

    /Mundane Nights & Closure /

    Someday when you are done with your work for the day. Trying to think of how some days are kinder than the rest, while on others you have to be kinder than your days. Maybe you are watching the night sky and thinking about some memory of the past. That one memory. Where everything changed. That time, you now wish you’d known better. You wish someone would have told you to choose otherwise. Its something that you think about on a regular basis.

    But one day, maybe when you are gazing at the night sky. As the clouds part way for the full moon to cast its mellow glow, you’ll realise that its ok.
    You no longer feel the need to change the past. You accept the lessons it taught you. You take them with you. Lessons, memories you’ll keep them close but you’ll chose to let go of all that was hurting for so long. The people, the circumstances, the incidents that followed. And in that moment, you’ll stop finding the reason of why it was the way it was.
    You’ll no longer feel the need to get your reasons validated by others. You’ll find the peace that you were looking for so long.
    Everything won’t be picture perfect, but is it ever?

    Its on one of these mundane nights, that you’ll find the closure. No longer wishing for much. Just happy about the new found peace for yourself.
