On the Times you Feel Down!

We all showcase our happy moments, our moments of victory and pride, but fail to express our low, sad, and embarrassing moments. Why is that? Because we think that it’s a sign of weakness to express our low moments. But in reality, it’s a sign of ultimate strength to recognize your overwhelming emotions and trying…

Musings of a locked down Research Scholar

With everyone talking about mental health these days, I thought I would pen down my experience on the subject. Being a PhD research scholar, I have had my fair share of these demons. I have been a good student throughout my life and was accepted to an elite engineering school as a PhD candidate. My…

Depression is Real

Yes, depression is real. Being sad is not the same as being in depression. Sadness is natural and unique to each individual. Both sadness and depression may overlap, but they differ in many ways. Depression is more than just sadness. It is a common, but serious mood disorder. A lack of interest, sleeplessness or excessive…

The heart desires remorselessly and the mind suffers- bearing the weight of all the consequences and fretting over the tiniest of things.

It is a science, science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul. @amitray Yoga is not just doing some exercise, it is much more. It…

Most Important Things

The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them, words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie…

I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

വൈറസ്

ഏകാന്തത ഒരു മാരക വൈറസ് ആണെന്ന് പലപ്പോഴും ഞാൻ വിചാരിക്കാറുണ്ട്. നമ്മുടെ അനുവാദമില്ലാതെ തന്നെ, തൻ്റെ നിശബ്ദ ശല്കങ്ങളാൽ അത് നമ്മെ സ്പർശിക്കും.. പിന്നെ, ആരും കാണാതെ, ഒരു വിഷവള്ളി പോലെ..നമ്മളിലേക്ക് പടർന്നുകയറും. അപ്പോൾ ആൾകൂട്ടമൊഴിഞ്ഞു നാം തനിയെ ആകും.. ഈ ലോകത്തിനു നേരെ വാതിൽ കൊട്ടിയടക്കാൻ,.. ആരും കാണാതെ ഒളിഞ്ഞിരിക്കാൻ…നാം പഠിക്കും. ചൂടും കുളിരും നമ്മെ മാറി മാറി പുണരും.. നാം ചുമയ്ക്കും, കിതയ്ക്കും, ശ്വാസത്തിന് വേണ്ടി പിടയും…. അപ്പോൾ, ‘നമ്മളി’ൽ നിന്ന് ‘നീ’യും ‘ഞാനു’മെന്ന…

Broken Ones

Who fixes broken people? Is it only other broken people, ones who’ve already been ruined? And do we need to be fixed? It was the messiness and hurt in our pasts that drove us, and that same hurt connected us at a subdermal level, the kind of scars written so deeply in your cells that…
