How I wish I could’ve written this blog on time and ushered in the Leo Season (21Jul-22Aug) with it! Nothing is ever too much or too showy for the regal Lioness/Lion/Lion-cub! Unfortunately, it just wasn’t meant to be and now as we are well into the Virgo season, I get this urge to do this blog right now! I do not have the patience to write it and keep it aside for next Leo season either! At the end of the day, does it really matter? Anytime is a good time to hail the children of the Sun!

For those…

Tomorrow, on 21August21, my blog turns four! This post also happens to be my 100th! That calls for double celebration! What if I told you that I am reaching another milestone tomorrow?! Well, I am completing my 21-day Better Living Course with the Yoga Institute. My hundredth blog is my tribute to the Yoga institute, for doing so much in these 20days, for me, giving me hope that despite all my wrong choices in the past, I can still transform and live a wholesome life! Doesn’t that sound too good to be true? It is and it isn’t! …

For those who have been following this blog space for a while, you would know that I seldom watch the News or read the papers because my sanity is dear to me. News trickles down anyway but watching it firsthand or reading it for myself affects me in a big way especially since I am an empath and more so, since I am not adept at shaking off or cleansing other energies. And yet, I broke the rule and watched it yesterday- on YouTube by accident and then those eyes led me to watch TV…

As I write this, the…

Fasting is a trend now from a health point of view. You have the 16:8 fasting and different varieties depending on whom you follow. However, before making fasting scientific in the manner it is being made today, it was an age-old ritual followed in all traditional religions if I am not mistaken. Patterns may vary. Be it Lent before Easter, Ramzan/Ramadan before Eid or the number of fasts in the Hindu tradition especially in India, for every occasion and region for instance the two Navratris, Chhat pooja, the 41 days fast during the Sabarimala season and many more which we…

I get a frantic call early one morning. My mother! She never calls so early I thought and quickly sent up a prayer for all to be well. It was and it wasn’t. By God’s grace, Daddy and she were fine but she had witnessed poltergeist in real life! “My phone is making calls and sending voice messages on its own”, she blurts out hysterically. “X Aunty said that some gibberish via voice mail was posted on the society group from my number. I have also been told I’ve been calling people whom I never called.” I had just finished…

  • Why is Haryana pronounced Har-ya-na in every language but Kerala pronounced Ke- ral in Hindi? Why is the ‘a’ eaten? Makes no sense and bugs me to no end.
  • Why is that men graduate from Master to Mister at 18 and that has nothing to do with their marital status but for ladies Miss is unmarried and Mrs. is married and this vague Ms. is not understood by anyone?
  • Why do people you love and who supposedly love you back, go out of their way to cheer you up and get you…

“The innocence and imagination that appears in the hearts of young children. As the children grow older, they become more mature and gain more responsibilities. They lose their muchness.” I was sent this message by a dear friend and I don’t know who said/wrote this originally but the word has stayed with me since.

Do dwell on that for a while. It is so important and just taken as a given. “That’s life” or “This is reality” should not let us accept it but we do, mostly without giving it a second thought. I believe that at the very least…

Altruistic or Codependent, what are you? Does the question seem vague or as though it is an odd choice between two options which aren’t necessarily related? Think again. It was an eye-opener for me as well. In fact, the past two years or more have been such a roller coaster ride for me, in terms of spiritual growth if you’d like to call it that. I would describe it as a process that has shaken a lot of my core concepts making the “musingswhileunlearning” blog title a prophecy of sorts!

Altruism is when you have selfless concern for another’s well-being…

An inspiring piece and just when I needed it. I am doing what you did with your blogging only difference being I am still posting and hoping after nearly four years and not earning a dime! I thought I had taken decisive steps but really small ones and not informed ones either, as I learn from your blog! Well, better late than never!

Thank you for this two-part strategy.

P.S- Brilliant caricatures too!

Being a movie buff all my life, I’ve surprised myself over the past year and a half by hardly wanting to watch a film. Yes, I do love watching movies in a theatre but I have no qualms of watching it on TV or on the computer and with Netflix running all the latest movies it is really unlike me to not want to watch anything at all. And then it happened! I forced myself to be normal (read my old self) again. I was hoping for some company but none seemed interested so I picked out a movie called…
