    Again, just an opinion. If you don't like it, don't react. Thanks!

    Try and list all the major mistakes you did in life. The list of "if you wouldn't have made that mistake your life might be a little different right now." Keep updating the list whenever you feel like it. Don't show it to anyone else, just keep it with you.

    In the future, when you have a family, and your beautiful kids are almost 15 to 16 years of age, make a habit of sitting them down once a week at night, and tell them about the story of how you made one of the mistakes from your list. What it was, when it happened, how it happened, why it happened and tell them how they should avoid doing the mistake you made.

    Don't make it a lecture but more like a conversation. Because kids at 15-16 will be at the age where they won't listen to you. Also, you can start talking about the list when they are young because they are immature and won't relate to your story. At the age of 16, we tend to become responsible and mature.

    Try to keep one story per week. Don't rush. Make them relate. They'll realise and understand your stories when they face a similar kind of situation.

    I'm not an expert nor I'm a parent. But what I believe is that this method of making them understand is a way much better alternative than being strict parents. And most importantly, they will be able to understand about taking decisions wisely.

    Start making your list! :)

    During evenings, I sit outside and I see my friends hanging out and not inviting me. It's so hard to know the fact that they are talking shit about you and you can't confront them.

    Yes, it hurts every time thinking about it but every evening, I sit with a neighbourhood doggo who lives in my street. He sits quietly beside me, I try to talk to him about being a human. And he tries to listen (I hope!).

    His company is what keeps me going through evenings.

    The gifts
    The gift ribbons
    The love letters
    The movie tickets
    The chocolate wrappings
    The memories
    The love
    I kept
    She left.

    When you meet the right person, it feels like forever won't be enough.

    My crush changing profile pictures!

    It is 2 AM. Google sends me a memory of a couple of years back.

    I was in my hostel room. It was a picture I took with a book in my hand of a subject I had no idea of. The next day I had to appear for the same. I remember that day. I said to myself - "What is this life? I want to go home and enjoy."

    And then COVID happened, and life has never been the same since.

    I wish I hadn't said those words and enjoyed, savoured that moment.

    When I first saw her, I didn't know I would be able to love somebody so much. Adopting her didn't change anything.

    Fall Of Humanity

    I haven't visited any other country, so I barely know about it. But if you are from India, you must have surely heard street dogs barking near our houses at night. And dogs bark right? I mean to fight with other street dogs but also to protect our surroundings. That's the beauty of these creatures. We, as Indians, rarely adopt them in our houses and even though they keep us safe at night.

    Two days back, one of our street dogs was barking. The next day, our neighbours came to fight with us. And they told us to not give them "food". According to them, they are selfish beings who are inhabiting our streets just because we feed them every day. Their whole argument was stupid. I spoke out in front of them that they'll not go anywhere else and I'll continue to feed them and no one could stop me.

    The neighbours while going back to their house said something that made my heart sink and I felt ashamed being a human being. They said," We'll bring poison tomorrow and mix them with their food, they won't survive."

    Even though they whispered, I had heard it and it felt like we humans don't deserve to be here. I felt ashamed of myself and everyone! How could someone even at least think about it? And they were planning to do this with no shame on their faces or their voices!

    I accept that we are the most advanced beings on the planet, for now, but that doesn't mean that we get to choose who lives or who gets to die. There's a term called ecosystem which simply translates to LIVING and NON LIVING things that work together. However, we consider ourselves as the dominant species which is where we fall. Not me, not you, but US!

    I have no idea how much money the garbage truck drivers earn. But a garbage truck comes every other day in our street and the driver NEVER forgets to bring a packet of biscuits for the dogs. That gives me hope, that humanity is not dead, yet.

    This message is to everyone reading this. It's okay if you don't like dogs. There are many just like you. But don't be against them. And it's just not about dogs. I am saying this for every animal out there. Our hope of humanity is dangling by a string.
