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:)

On love and attachments.

Learning to live without the person whom we loved more than our life is one of the toughest things we humans experience during our life.
Almost every moment of our day we spend in their shadows, enveloped in their love; we don't even realise when they became an extension of our selves. We come to accept them along with their flaws, their peculiarities, which often have the potential to drain us of our patience. Yet, we love them, unconditionally, at times wondering how we survived before they entered our world. Often, we also wonder how we will ever survive after they leave our world.

The human mind is such.  Its ability to give birth to a thought and then mull over it however unpleasant it may be, is quite baffling! We realise we stand to lose our sanity if we don't get rid of that negative thought; we understand how important it is to live in the moment and enjoy it with the loved ones we fear losing someday, yet we keep worrying ourselves to death about what would happen t…

You are The Man!

I admit, I am late in discussing this event, but did you watch the controversial 'Koffee with Karan' episode, two weeks ago? The one where the ubertalented Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan were Karan Johar's guests on his famous couch, sipping coffee along with him? Did you notice Kangana's confidence and her sassiness?   Do you remember her repartees, her jibes, her ripostes that were well-aimed at Mr. Johar? How fearlessly she spoke her mind without mincing words! And, she was in conversation with one of the Big Daddies of Bollywood.

I confess, I am an admirer of Ms. Ranaut, and I was blown away by her candour. The fact that she gave two hoots about diplomacy, and about the men in power in the hindi film industry,  shows how self-assured she is. She wasn't born into the industry, with a silver spoon; she entered the industry as an "outsider", who, despite being written off by the industry bigwigs, worked her way up the very competitive ladder, right to…

How I wish I could turn back the clock!

"Youth comes but once in a life time!"

             Traversing through  life, how often do we look back wistfully at our past and wish we could go back, wish we could live it all over again, just one more time?   Each time we witness the young around us enjoying life, enjoying their freedom and pursuing dreams with an enviable vigour, how we wish we could swap places! Sigh.

             A few days ago, I happened to have a chat with a 23 year old cousin. Excited about her future and the plans she had chalked out for herself, she had quite a lot to share with me. The sparkle in her eyes and the enthusiasm in her voice spoke a lot about how eager she was to embark upon the path she had chosen! Her enthusiasm was, indeed, contagious, for it left me yearning to turn the clock back and re-enter that age I left behind almost 2 decades ago.

          Were I to find Aladdin's lamp, I would ask the Genie to transport me back to the past I so wish…
