A note of kindness for myself

Does that sound selfish? Oh no! It’s self love. Last month, I attended a virtual talk of a friend who is a counsellor. In the talk, we were asked, who is the most important person in your life.

While many of us consider our families as the most important people in our lives, we forget to count ourselves. That’s was the point those counsellors wanted to put forth. Interestingly, my answer was:

ME! SAUMYA! Continue reading A note of kindness for myself

Dear Stranger(s)

We were on the same train. Not only were we unaware of each other’s presence but also existence. In all these years, I have met so many of you. We may have had eye contact, we may have passed each other a smile or may have just walked past each other. Continue reading Dear Stranger(s)

Dear Dream

You seem like an unachievable transitory thing to me. There was a time when I lived for you, then there came a time when I gave you up. A little more than a year ago, I saw you again. I started to believe in you again. But I didn’t know if I’d ever be able to meet you. Continue reading Dear Dream

Dear Time

Dear Time

It’s been a long time since I wrote to you. To be precise, it’s been 1 year, 11 months and 26 days. A lot has changed in this period. I have started to realise your worth and that I should not let you slip away. Continue reading Dear Time

Dear Zindagi/ Dear Life

Dear Zindagi

Aaj socha humne
Thodi guftagoo tumse ki jaaye
Kaisi ho tum?
Socha puch liya jaaye
Bahut samay hua
Baat-cheet hum
Tumse nahi kar paaye
Dear Life

Today I thought
I’ll have a conversation with you
I thought I should ask you
How are you?
It’s been a long time
Since we didn’t talk Continue reading Dear Zindagi/ Dear Life

A letter to my present self

Dear Present Me

I don’t know why everybody is panicking but you am not. Is the world mad or are you? You have stepped out of the house just once since the evening of 13th. And now, we finally have a nationwide complete lockdown for 21 days. I don’t know if you should be happy about it or not. Continue reading A letter to my present self

Bag of happiness!

I’ve never received any authentic letters. But I have received notes. Handwritten notes have that personal touch that give me a different sense of happiness. I believe people leave a part themselves in their handwriting. Continue reading Bag of happiness!

Blogging Chums Award

I am on top of the world right now as I start writing this post. Just another award post? No! My friend Robert over at The Non- Alcholic Student got a thousand followers on his blog and for the celebrations he invented this award called The Blogging Chums Award! Isn’t that great? What makes me happier is that he nominated me for this award. Thanks Robert for considering me! And I apologise for delayed it for almost a week.  Continue reading Blogging Chums Award

Dear Time

I always heard that you heal everything. But I could never believe it. I could never consider you a friend of mine. Now when I rethink of what I just said, I realise I never had the thought of having you as my friend. It seems like I’m just playing with words. Continue reading Dear Time
