Light and hope




Lights will guide you home..”

                        As the very famous band Coldplay says it, Lights do guide us. They ignite hope in our lives of endless troubles, and they help us push through the darkest of times.

        We tend to associate darkness with light, because if it doesn’t get dark, why shall we use light? Therefore, doesn’t it become necessary for darkness in our lives to prevail, so that we shall discover our strength, our capabilities, our abilities to cross the storm to get to the rainbow? Doesn’t darkness become a prerequisite for light?

                           During a storm, and during dark times, we must have faith that we shall make it to the rainbow, and we shall discover a light, that this too shall pass, and what comes next shall come. This light is not necessarily discovered in our surroundings, or in other people, it can, and most often is, discovered within oneself. For we are the our beginning, and we are our end, and we are what comes between.







Along with writing and photography, I have another passion-travelling. Visiting new places, meeting new people, trying new things, learning about different cultures is what I am all about. I wish to have a travel book, where I record all my beautiful moments of all the different places. I believe travelling is to a soul what water is to thirst. The thought of filling the soul with memories, experiences, adventures is one that all the people admire.

         Travelling is something which can be enjoyed with company, like friends, family, and your partner, as well as with yourself. I usually would prefer to travel alone, because it would give me time to be with myself, and it would give me a break from people, which, I believe we all need at some point or the other. Imagine, you wandering in new places, by yourself, just enjoying the alluring moments and making pleasing memories.

      I believe travelling gets you into another world, a world where you can do anything you want, wander anywhere you like and whenever you like. It is a satisfaction that all must experience.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

                                          ~St. Augustine


Criticize. In this world where we encourage everybody to be positive, think positive and try to look for the good in all the situations, we forget to realize that criticism isn’t always bad. Where excessive criticism is unhealthy, and is an obstacle to solving problems as well as thinking creatively, criticism in a limited amount is necessary. I feel so because when we tend to criticize any basic event, or object, we discover it’s flaws or drawbacks, and being able to discover the drawbacks of anything means we can come up with solutions to make the situation, object, or event better. Of course, I believe that too much of criticism produces nothing but de-motivation, and there are some situations in which even limited criticism should be avoided, but completely thinking that criticism is irrelevant would not be the right way to go.

Daily Prompt: Tempted

via Daily Prompt: Tempted

Tempted? The first thought that comes to my mind after seeing this word is chocolate. Nothing can tempt me as much as chocolate. It’s taste, it’s texture, just everything. Want me to do something for you? Get me chocolate. This is something my friends like to use very often, yeah. They just know that I can never say no to chocolate. I think I might go eat one now!
