The sands of time.

Day 3 of the 7 day blogging challenge at Write Tribe.

        Today's rule could actually be called a panacea for all our maladies.


       The only thing that heals not only our physical, but also our emotional wounds, like no other medicine!

                                             Time heals almost everything. Give it time.

      How often have we been advised by our elders to just give things time to work out? Our problems, our stress, our sorrow - we are so bogged down by it all.  We are left reeling under tremendous pressure, worried if the phase will ever come to an end. It's times like these, when we completely forget that this too shall pass!

    Times - they keep changing.  Every night comes to end and we are blessed with  a brand new day. Every storm passes by and the skies clear, bringing the vigour and vitality of the bright sunlight to  nourish our weather-beaten souls. Every minute that passes by, takes us further away from our grief and our troubles.

     Yet, I think, not all of us have faith in time. We somehow don't trust it as much as we should. Maybe, our belief system isn't as strong, else we would be having a much better relationship with Father Time!  The problems we face today - do they even seem half as taxing after an year, or even a month? The severity of our problems subsides with time.

     Putting all  our trust in the gentle hands of time will definitely help us breeze past those moments of distress, won't it?  Of course, patience is paramount. Without patience in tow, belief in time is of no use whatsoever! Know, that these tough times, too, shall change  in perfect time, and that all the trauma that we go through, will be a thing of the past.

     Have faith! Stay blessed!

     Here are a  couple of quotes I would like to share to reiterate my sentiments..




  1. What a beautiful thought to read in the morning! Problems never last forever but tough souls do!

  2. Very well said ! Time has its own charm !

  3. This too shall pass, yes indeed! Every time something bad happens we think it will take forever to get over it, but time heals. Patience is paramount..inspiring post. :)

  4. Time has its own therapeutic effect. Once we are determined to move forward the scars and pain diminish with time even if they may not be erased. A thoughtful and thought provoking post!!

  5. Patience and time are like miracle healers.

  6. Time helps....but sometimes, it takes a lot of time.....!

  7. Once a dear friend told me when I was going through a terrible break up, 'The Universe will take you along only if you allow it!'. It made me feel better and in harmony with myself:)

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

The Pakistani Bride - Book Review.

I had been on quite a long reading hiatus, which, fortunately, ended last week. I bought not one, but three books of varied genres to begin afresh. I wrote about Love stories, an anthology edited by Ruskin Bond, and,  I let you go', by Clare Mackintosh. In today's post, I review the third book, 'The Pakistani Bride', by the internationally acclaimed  author, Bapsi Sidhwa.

   Her books have been translated and published in several languages and she has received many an honour for her literary works. As humbled as I feel reviewing her book, I hope I am able to do justice to her work. So, help me God.

The Pakistani Bride  is the story of Zaitoon, a little girl orphaned during the exodus that was the Partition of India and Pakistan. The bloodbath that led to a complete annihilation of the fabric of our country left countless families shattered and destructed.

 The following two lines  paint an accurate picture of  the aftermath of the Partition, of people's struggl…

The Wise Man Said - Book Review.

Book: The Wise Man Said.

Author: Priya Kumar.

Genre: Motivational.

The story in a nutshell: Sammy, an 80 year old billionaire, realises that the secret behind his success in life has been the various sacrifices he made along the way. One of the foremost being his neglect towards his family that rendered him a lonely soul bereft of a single person cheering him for his win in the race called 'life'. This realisation spurs him to leave behind his identity and money and participate in the life he missed out on. Eleven months in a year, he takes on a new identity and sets out to experience anything - even death - to participate in adventures across the world. All he carries with him are his curiosity and his willingness to experience anything that life may present him with.

The Wise Man Said is a collection of twelve stories from Sammy's adventures that he penned down in his diary; experiences from his exciting journey that left him feeling enriched and contented at a life well liv…
