There will be days when you would feel like escaping from everything around you, you would wish to run away from everything that affects your mental health. You might even ignore phone calls or text messages just because you dont feel like talking, maybe, you’ll prefer your own company over someone else’s. People will call you rude because you will be busy, choosing you. You will play your favourite song, you will read your favourite book, pour yourself a cup of coffee just the way you like it, you’ll indulge yourself in all that keens your interest, you’ll talk to yourself, remind yourself wherever you are, but, just remember, its okay to be just be like this. BEING YOU..!
And, trust me, that’ll never be selfish. Because choosing yourself is not selfish, choosing your happiness over someone else’s is not selfish. It is not at all selfish. Just ask yourself, putting myself before anyone else, does that cost too much of inner peace? Or, is that..that difficult? I’m sure it’s not. Why do we always tend to choose others over and over ourselves everytime when we know we are worthy of it. This may help you in a short run, but, on a long run it may end up devastating you, destroying you completely; and thereby ending you up in a state of mess which you may have never thought of. Though, taking that leverage to hurt someone is definitely is.
So, choose yourself if that what it takes to make you feel proud of what you are, choose yourself a thousand times if that what it takes to make you love you for whatever you are today. Know your worth, and all that you are worthy for. Dont keep things to you about someone, open up, when someone is wrong, say them, no matter how much courage that takes, or how the other perosn will feel. Silence is not the key to your happiness.
I dont think anyone of us present here would ever like to remain silent, only because what the other person will feel like, and not just caring about how we ourselves, the inner us, will feel like.
First of all, I would like to thank each and every person who believed in me and my writings out there. If you and your support had not been there, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve it. Thanks a ton all..!🙂
To be very Frank, when I started this blogging, I never thought people would cherish it so much. Actually I started all this with no hope at all. Lol. And, the main reason behind me writing, was the urge to inspire people, even if a single person could be influenced by even a single piece of mine, I would be really overwhelmed. As we know, change for good, change by taking a small step, is even always welcomed 🙂
So, there it goes, I feel so honoured and enthusiastic to be nominated for this award, even more than that, https://dsgn4.wordpress.com/, she believing in me to be liable for this so prestigious thing. Thank you so much . I cannot explain in words how I felt the day you nominated me for this. It is a great pleasure for me.
Also, you all must go and check, https://dsgn4.wordpress.com/ , she has some so great pieces out there..! I’m sure you’ll like it as much as I did.
Coming to this award, I guess we all are a great bunch of unconventional writers, reading a lot, writing tons of pieces altogether and scouring the web for new content to consume and even give us the opportunity to award ourselves for this very stuff. That’s what this award is , a recognition of bloggers by other bloggers. And, I really feel privileged to be recognized by this great blogger, https://dsgn4.wordpress.com/.
R U L E S..
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. 2. Share 11 facts about yourself. 3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you. 4. Nominate the 11 bloggers and make them happy..! 5. Make upto 11 questions and ask them to your nominees. 6. Notify your 11 nominees.
11 FACTS ABOUT ME.
1. Firstly, coming to the very wired thing about me, I’m actually an omnivert..! Yes..Lmao..! I can be either an introvert or an extrovert. And, that totally depends on the other person, like if I feel comfortable with him/her, I’ll be sok exrovert; and forgive me for the first meets, I’m too an introvert for them, I dont open up so easily with a person I met the very first time.
2. I’m a hell big overthinker. I dont know why I think about a particular thing so much that I try to assume a lot many times, maybe in some way it is good, but sometimes, it kinda stresses me a lot.
3. I’m a curious wanderlust. I love travelling to remote areas, small towns, crowdy places and anything which brings me peace; capturing every beauty of nature, be it small children dressed in traditional wear, or a roadside stall or a regional dance going by the side.
4. I’m a big foody, that much that if you say to have anything at any time, and it looks kinda delicious to me I’ll be ready to be your company🥵. I love exploring different cuisines and dishes all over the world. And, I must say, JAPAN has a very good collection for this.
5. I love reading books. Novels which really keen my interest include ‘THE RUDEST BOOK EVER’by shwetabh gangwar and ‘WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE’ by oprah Winfrey. I suggest you all to have a read of them. I couldn’t find anything better than them.
6. I’m quite a art loving person. I love painting and sketching whenever I fetch sometime from the so hectic schedules. And, nevertheless, this inpistation comes from none other than the great, ‘ LEONARDO DA VINCI’ ; I must say to all those who love to draw, paint, sketch, doodle or whatever, just do, dont think of what the hell world says.
7. I prefer walking miles, no matter how much it starts hurting after a point if time; rather than sitting in a car or any other vehicle. Walking brings peace, especially when we are with someone who understands us, hand in hand.
8. I love exploring. Whenever I go out, I try to find something new, and coincidentally I always tend to find, something new, everytime i pass by the same place. As we know, everytime we go out into the world we can choose to be alert to see what we’ve not seen before.
9. I love gardening. Actually I started this out of enthusiasm, and I really dont know when this became my hobby, and when did I actually started enjoying it. And, after all plants do listen. Try having a convo with them, try sharing all your pain, I’m sure you’ll gonna feel better.
10. I love surprises. Though I still dont know how to react to one, but still, I really like having them. After all, it keeps a spark alive inside me, of the so called unknowing curiosity.
11. And the last one, I don’t feel like giving up easily. It takes a billion efforts for me to give up.😅. Life is not always as we want it to be, so how can we expect anything if we give up. Kudos to a billion chances we get, and the very fact of recognizing them in time.
THE Q AND A’S..
1. AFTER READING THE FACTS HOW MANY OF WE ARE COMMON IN?
So, reading the 11 facts about you, I could come to a conclusion , maybe 6 of them; – I do even mess up things inside but tries to come clean and organised with everything. – even I’m a fan of drawing, writing, leaving stitching😅. – always welcoming to the process of learning new things, after all this is what we call an evolution in ourselves. – pastels are love, and yes, yellow is even my favourite. – too a believer of universe, quite religious and believe in any religion it could be, after all god is one👼. – and, yes, spending time with nature, my soo called the so beautiful time.
2. ANY ADVICE FOR ME?
Ummm, actually you are a whole one great person in yourself. So, my only advice to you would be ; be kind, be humble and polite to anyone who crosses your way, be it even a stranger, as we never know what all is going on in another person’s life. You are such a good soul.
3. DO YOU HAVE ANY FEAR?
Fear, yes, actually it is not a fear from a creepy animal, insect or anything if that kind. I just fear sometimes that what I’m gonna start, wont work, and what if it doesn’t works? After all, this never conquers me what I’m doing, but whenever I start something new, this appears as a great wall in my mind.
4. ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE IN YOUR LIFE?
Yes, obviously, I want to achieve, above all, internal peace, peace of mind. We all are so messed up with our lives, in our minds, kinda so busy with what we are doing or accomplishing that we tend to forget we have a life apart from all this chaos, the life which includes us, only us. So,yes, amidst all this chaos, a complete peace of mind is what I desire for.
5. IT BECOMES SO DIFFICULT TO ACCEPT SOME THINGS WE CANT CHANGE. HOW DO YOU ACCEPT THE THINGS YOU CAN’T CHANGE?
Okey, so coming to this question, I would like to say, yes, sometimes we cannot change things, so the least we can do is just accept them the way they are. It is hard, but do we have an option? We cannot just sit back all day long, with tears in eyes and stress in mind..right? We can’t spoil our other opportunities waiting. So, the only thing we can do is understand, make up a mind, that, this too shall pass, and trust me, it really does. 🙂 Have some belief in you..! Things gonna happen right soon.
6. ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WRITING?
Coming to this, the best thing about writing, what I feel like, is, we can open down all of our thoughts going through in our heads, some we can never say to anyone out there in person. So, writing gives us the privilege to penn down those thoughts which, if we keep in our minds, can be devastating. Also, another thing, I wanted to help people, inspire them and push them that they can do everything they want to and that they need no one for this, so I chose this path to put forward my words in front of those hesitating to say, to share, maybe reading them, may help them in some or the other way.
7. WOULD YOU HAVE A PLAN TO WRITE A BOOK?
Ofcourse yes, actually I was thinking about this from quite a long time ago, writing is like pleasure to me. I feel at peace when I do this, and if even a single person is influenced by me,writing; and that he can change any of his/her habits, it will be such a great thing for me. So yes, i was actually planning one, maybe someday. If any book publisher is reading this, I would really like to be a part of your publications.😁🖤
8. ONE OF YOUR BEST MEMORY.
Memories, ummm, actually seriously speaking, I dont have quite a good memories in my life. And, neither I’m a memory keeping person as well. Maybe its something, like, whenever I’m out in nature, feeling the soothing breezes over my face and all of my body, and the peace I feel in there, that times be my best memories, and such ones I love capturing.
9. ONE THING YOU WANT TO LEARN.
Okey, when it comes to learning, I feel like we learn at every single step we take in our lives in small small ways. It has no boundations or limits for ones who rely want to learn. And, one thing I would like to learn, is to focus. Yes, I would really want to learn to have a clear focus in my mind of what I’m really doing, having self confidence for that.
10.WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING?
For writing, yes, my ultimate motivation always comes from, when I see the people so stressed out in their lives, so depressed to even give anything a try; I feel for people who cannot come up with their own words, what they actually want to say, keep bothering themselves by their own thoughts. These people need help, and how the society ignores them, is so a very sad part of this patriarchal society. So, this inspires me to lay a platform for such people, WHERE THE INSPIRATION LIES…!
11.WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU LEARNT FROM 2020?
Well, the most important thing 2020 taught is, how we disagree the very fact that life is short, and how we should indulge ourselves in every part of it and make the very best of each day we come across. Death is inevitable, and no one can overlook it, we are all gonna die one day, so fuck it, why not just live, every moment to the fullest…!🌸

THE Q AND A’S..
1. IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE INSPIRED WHEN YOU WRITE AN ARTICLE? WHY AND WHY NOT?
Maybe it all depends on the type of person writing. Some people need an inspiration to write something, for example breakups tend to come up with some very great poetry😂😂..it becomes an inspiration for many to penn down. Well, this was just an example. Many a times, people who write, write because they have experienced something like that, maybe in their past life, some failure, a heartbreak, or anything of that sort. While, on the other hand, some people write just because they feel at ease penning down their thoughts, bringing peace to their minds. So, according to me, it is not always important to be inspired to write something, though not neglecting the fact either.
2. WHY DO YOU THINK YOU DESERVE TO BE NOMINATED FOR THIS AWARD?
Well, to be very Frank, I was not expecting something like this in the very first place. It’s just a big thanks to all my followers out there, who believe in me and my writings. I really appreciate the kindness of this person, to really give me this wonderful opportunity. I dont know if I deserve this or not, but I surely know that if i can give at least a bit of inspiration to even a single person out there, if, even a single person brings even a slight change in their lives because of what I wrote, that would mean so much to me, and would be more like a great achievement to me. I’ll really appreciate me for that. A smile, which comes on the faces of many, by reading what I wrote, is all what I deserve and am worthy for.
3. DO YOU NEED MUSIC TO BE ON THE BACKGROUND WHEN YOU WRITE? IF SO, WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Certainly yes. Actually that really depends on the mood. Sometimes, I really need some background music, and that has to be something like a jazz instrumental, old opera music or even Beethoven’s symphony; yaa this may sound crazy, but yes, I really love these being played as I’m writing. But, there are times even, when I really feel like writing without any noise, like when something’s really distracting me. So, all depends on the mood. Though, I’m not like totally dependent on a background music, to write quality, it’s just like it eases my mind, and brings it more peace.
4.IS IT PROPER TO NOMINATE A FRIEND-ON-LINE THIS AWARD? GIVE A REASON.
I guess yes. Award is an award, be it anyway and we should all appreciate in anyway we get it. So, yes there is no bad in nominating someone online for this award. After all, these give a hell lot of inspiration to the people who are actually hoping a lot. Getting a tag or appreciation for something we do with our whole heart, brings a lot of satisfaction and self confidence to the people out there. I feel this is the best way we can appreciate someone online.
5. ARE YOU HAPPY TO BE ON A NOMINEES LIST OF THE AWARD? WHY?
Who will not be happy to be a part of this award nominees?😂…well, this nomination, was so unexpected for me, I really started this blogging thing out of nowhere, just to let people know what they are worthy for. I just went with the flow all these days, and maybe, this is also a part of it. Afterall, someone believing in what i write, appreciating that, bringing it in their own lives and having a wide smile over their faces is all needed for me to be happy and yes, a part of this beautiful journey too …!😊❤
THE QUESTIONS I WOULD LIKE TO ASK TO ALL MY NOMINEES..

“We may be feared, but, our fear can never overcome our strengths.”
Since born being told, education is not to hold and, that , you are the caretakers to behold. A star was born amidst this chaos.
Determined she, combating the brutish rules of Taliban, kept paving ways for her and thousand others. Well, if one man can destroy everything , Why can’t one girl change it? Nevertheless, fancy times don’t last. Constant setbacks, abandoning schools, everything left misruled. But, as is said, can we dim the brightness of a shining star? i guess no. Choosing to continue, her inspiration couldn’t stop her to pursue. Diary of a Pakistani girl, when became the heartbeat of every girl, fear couldn’t conquer strength and she proved it to the length.
Overwhelmed she, influencing thousands, a small twitch, echoing in the silence. Ending up with noble peace prize, still continues to rouse billions, in the hearts of all.
I salute you, young lady not all raise voices against these uncalled noises, education is a must, leave the gender rush just you need a thrust, to hold your rights, just trust. As said, with guns you can kill terrorists, but, with education, terrorism.
“We may be feared, but, our fear can never overcome our strengths. “
Would you listen to what I have to say, when I have nothing to say? Would you ever care to see my eyes, full of, the broken dreams of you and me? Would you ever care to look into my eyes the way you did the first time, ever?
If I decorate my skin with words and metaphors, and not some seductive attire; and my mouth with Elizabeth’s love poems i wonder, would you even notice me then? If I tend to have an ancreontic convo, playing with the metrical compositions and diving deep into each others minds, i wonder, would you even try to read mine?
Would you mind having a stroll alongside the brook under the lamppost on a lonely winter evening, with a cup of cappuccino in our freezing hands, snow pouring on us like the puff balls that float down from the clouds. Amidst, all this, we, having a soft tête-à-tête, over the classical literature, lyrical ballads, similes and rhymes, Would you mind? As I would never mind, listening, a few poems, or maybe, just a few words of love maybe, just anything; dripping from your lips like honey, while dreaming and breathing sustainable scenarios .
Tell me, would you notice me if I cover myself in an out of sight ensemble? Or, in a faint vanilla scent? Would you listen to what I have to say then? Would you even bother to read all the poetries and verses, i wrote under your name? Would you listen to what I have to say? Ever?
Maybe, we aren’t afraid of heights, we just fear of falling. We aren’t afraid of love, we just fear of getting a heartbreak after investing so many fruitful years of our lives, we are afraid of being heartbroken , of that anguish, of that feeling, feeling of being alone. We aren’t afraid to be intimate with someone , we fear the after-effects of it, which can be even toxic to our lives, we are afraid that if we show ourselves to the world, it wont like it. That once we are open, we may be left. We aren’t afraid of flying, what we are afraid of is that once we start flying, we’ll not have control if something goes wrong, we’re afraid of dying.
Why do we carry so much fear in us? Fear of losing ourselves just without giving it a try? Why do you feel so hopeless when all hope is your way, just you are not able to see it..and have caged it inside the four firm walls of your mind?
Just Remember, everything you are going thorugh, will ease. It may not go from your mind but the pain you are feeling, will definitely get easier to handle as the time goes by. It will take time, but you will eventually heal. Everything is temporary and life has a funny way of paving ways for the sunlight. If you remember the last time you laughed so much you cried or felt completely content and warm, you will feel that way again. Please keep trying to take care of yourself because “self destruction” is a tough habit to break and you will know why recovery is so freeing once you get there. Life is more than punishing yourself and having the same patterns repeat. Its okey to lean on others for support and admit that you need help because the voices in your head are just lies.
You will be okay, you will be happy again and, I believe in you.
I hope, you risk. I hope, you fall so that you can yourself see the jump you took wasnt as grand as you thought it be. I wish the ground to hit your feet and see your smile and tears when you discover the space that was there all along. I hope, you love. Love, so hard, that you may grieve for years and I’m not saying this because you’re weak or soft, but , to cheer up because you opened your heart with ferocious might, only some can do this, believe me; and once the salt of those tears have run from your blood, I wish you to exhale all the bad vibes and fall into the heart of someone new with all your might again. Trust me, this is a great feeling too, of falling.
Risk, overcome and get up again. You will be okay, you will be happy again, and I believe in you.
Sitting in the back porch, with my grandma, she, oiling my long curls me, gaping at the sky; i asked her, grandma, does this sky has any end? Is it limitless? Or nameless?
Chuckling about in her croaky voice, she whispered my dear girl, never look upon anything in your life as if, it has limitations. Yes, these blues you see are beyond limits, and so are you too measureless and countless. Nothing has limits unless we, set some to them. May this blue azure always remember you, the infinities out there, and plentitude of new opportunities lying at the shores waiting for you to approach. Just, you need to adjust your crown, and hold your head high. Cause, you are meant to grow beyond your restraints. Keep walking, as just like the sky, even your path is limitless. and, you know what, some flowers take time to bloom, but, they eventually do.
Yes, these blues you see are beyond limits, and so are you too measurelsss and countless..!
Just when I thought, i had lost all my hope in anything to cope you stepped into my life, like a fresh new wine. Cheering to a new start, a new beginning like the starting of a new inning.
The day, yes that day, you set your dark cocoa hues on my blue ones and courteously smiled and uttered “YOU’RE PERFECT” with that little crinkle on your forehead, Me, denying and denying; still not believing how I am, but, nonetheless, you, my mischievous betterhalf, repeatedly kept telling me the same thing, as if it was a mantra stuck in your head .
It was that day you made me believe that I, i could actually be held and possibly, fall in love without causing damage . And now, i can do anything to be your everything.
The biggest battle will always be you versus you, and trust me when I say that, you can go around making homes in people, seeking refuge in temporary shelters and giving parts of yourself to every next stranger you meet but at the end of the day it’d be you against you, making choices and silencing the noises in your head. These are the silent wars we all have inside our chests, some of us dont talk about them, but they do exist. I hope you end these wars. I hope you find courage to walk away from everything that affects your mental health.
You’re not your emotions. If you feel like a failure, you aren’t. You just need reminders that mistakes help you grow. They dont define you or put you behind everyone else. There are endless new sunrises and opportunities for new beginnings. Your past doesn’t defines your future and you can always change into the person you want to be.
If you feel hopeless, you are not. Everything you are going through will ease. Hoping for the best in all of us and the ending of the wars we are waging against us for long.
Last night i had a dream, a dream quite unusual to say a dream, kooky enough to give me a sleep twitch. God, I still remember that dream, where I was caged, a bird caged by her demons . Like I was trapped.
Everything was pitch black, leaving me to discover dozens of fallen Angels following my back. Me, running and running maybe, escaping from my demons as if someone was giving me the summons to not get suffocated by those demons.
Those amateurs, The light, my light, were continuously yelling “May the sky always remind you how far you can reach. No matter how much trapped you are you will find a way Remember who you already are a warrior, a survivor. You have to grow, dont let those demons make you wage a war against you. Unless you dont want to be saved from your demons, you can’t save yourself. Reanalyze everything you have to bloom again. You are your light I am not…! A deja vu, it is, It will happen again.”
And boom, there goes my amateurs like a glitch in the matrix. It was then I realised, i am my light no one else. And , the very next moment, I could reevaluate anything, I was there, lying on my bed everything vanishing in just a glance of time.
Little did I realise, trapped is just what we feel birds caged, trapped; by their demons until only we let them confine us.
