Life Happens At The Crossroads

Incredulous as it may seem, but life happens at the crossroads. Every road has something in store for you. 

One can take you to where your dreams lie, but it's fraught with uncertainties and failures. But this is your dream path, a path if takes its course, you have the opportunity to turn yourself into a dream man/women you always wanted to be. Nonetheless, the path is less traveled and you are quite oblivious to the mishaps and misfortunes it throws your way. You may stumble and fall umpteen times. But didn't they tell you that it's in falling that you rise like a star. I know it's easier said than done. A road less traveled is traveled less for a reason. Being a magnet of uncertainties, only few have the nerve to go through it all...sweat, blood and tears. And only a few have the courage to have their hearts cracked over and over again.       

The second one can take you to where your family and friends want you to be. Secure and safe, your life is more or less certain over here. You don't have to test the waters here. Someone is already ready to share your burden willingly. And there are people to support you.You don't have to undertake the journey on your own. Since you are following the most treaded path. But will you ever find happiness taking this road? 

The fact is people who have reached glorious heights were courageous people who let go off the certainties in life. Am i courageous enough? Or better to put it this way. Will i ever have the courage to let go off the certainties and take the road less traveled and live my dreams.

The Story Of A Designer Diya

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT" (Today, fifteen-years ago, Roshini had first lighted this antique designer diya at her dilapidated shanty. Today, fifteen-years after, Roshini is still excited about this old designer diya; and she’d once again light it up with all the energy and enthusiasm; but no, not at her shabby shanty.)                                         -----------------------------------

The designer diya was old, dull, dim and dinted. It lay there in the corner of the kitchen store room unwanted, uncared for amidst other regular diyas, half-burnt candles, unused rangoli colors, plastic thorans: all tightly tied-up and stored in a thick polythene bag.
Deepawali cleaning was going on in full swing; and for best reasons known to Reshma, my mai…

7 Bloggers Who Were The Wind Beneath My Wings!

A super short post: yes, I had reserved it for the final day.
For various reasons, one being sounding sycophant, I was wary of writing this post. But after reading, “Don’t Think of the Blue Ball” by Malati Bhojwani (as part of readerscosmos review), I knew in my hearts of hearts that what I am doing was right. Yes, the book pumped me up so much!
The premise of the book is quite promising. It talks about gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation for people around you. In fact, the author suggests readers to maintain a Daily Gratitude Journal, wherein they should thank all the people who helped them during the day. (Sadly though, am yet to come up with such a journal.) 

So much for the greatness of the book. Honestly, I always wished to thank many bloggers promptly and profoundly for visiting my small space for these last seven days (well, almost), by replying to their priceless comments, but I admit, I've miserably failed to do so. Time constraints…hope you understand. So, here I a…

Gujarat to Goa - A Photo Story

Goa - It's 3702 square kms of pure adrenaline, where the sun, the sea and the sand never go on a vacation.
But then, for me and my family, it was the Holy churches, Home-stay concept and the Carpet of greenery turned out to be the ultimate showstoppers. (Talking about churches and greenery, Goa and Kerala could be referred as twin sisters. They are so much alike in terms of food, climate, churches and the greenery around. The moment we entered Goa I became extremely nostalgic.)

We were in Thivim, Goa from January 23, 2017, to January 27, 2017,  and we loved every bit our stay at Ajit Navelkar’s Villa. We had booked his house online through Airbnb, and I tell you, it was worth every penny spent. My younger one liked the house so much so that he nicknamed it as our “Doosra Ghar.” 
By the way, our Doosra Ghar was huge. The living room was spacious and lovely.  From the wooden lamps to the lighting arrangement to the perfectly synced wall frames and the wooden furniture, almost every…
