Hello! Been a while since I got in touch with you. It feels a bit rusty when you stop writing or take a break from your creative activities—life happens. Well, at least I am back, albeit it took me a few travel trips to make it happen. Keep reading to know what my mind has to chatter about in today’s post. Note: I use we, you and I in an interchangeable manner to keep the flow of thoughts intact.Continue reading Random Musings #4
Hello! I hope you are keeping well and safe. The lockdown is still imposed upon us here, but this is June, it is the Pride month and I have been wanting to write about it for the longest time.

Also, do not forget to see my list of recommendations below for your learning and entertainment. Happy Pride Month 2021!Continue reading Have you slept with Women?
As I sit down and look through my cloud-stored folders and update my financial budgeting sheets for the year, it does not feel like a new year is about to begin today. 2020 has been insane – #lockdown #Covid #virus #WFH #mentalhealth #burnout and so forth. A lot has been going on in the last few weeks and I have not been in an emotionally stable place to gather up some courage and continue posting my blogs. However, I am getting better and it is a good time to wrap up my major hits and misses, high and lows, what I read and what I have learnt during this unusually chaotic year. Also, here is wishing you and your dear ones a healthy and prosperous new year ahead!
Let me take this moment just to say – you lived; every single day you woke up and tried to fight your blues due to this collective stress that has been impacting your daily life. Please pat yourselves for keeping it together with hope, strength and perseverance.Continue reading Wrapping up the year 2020
The world of self-help or self-improvement books is a league of its own. Whether you want guidance on an area of life that you would like to improve on or are simply looking for suggestions from those who have been there and done that, picking a self-help book can become cumbersome since you can easily search for suggestions on Google/Quora/YouTube etc. These books can cater to a range of interests—money, productivity, people skills, motivation, mindfulness, creativity, spirituality etc. Any book that claims to help you in improving or managing it better can be termed as a self-help book.
I have noticed people who usually do not read fiction books somehow like to dip their toes in reading a good self-help book. But while picking such a book, there are certain things that I would like to share so you don’t end up feeling that the recommendations put down by the author are all in the air. In my next post, I will share my list of six self-help books which I have read (or re-read) this year and would highly recommend it to you.
