Love Me…Leave Me Not

Love me...Leave me not

This is the first novel that I wrote as a part of the course that I had taken with The London School of Journalism. I will be publishing  two chapters per week starting from the first of August. Would love to hear from you.




If all the people were Hindus

Or If all the people were Christians

Or if all the people in the world were  Muslims

Promise me that there would be less blood shed.

If all the people were brown

Or if all the people were black

Or if all the people were white

Promise me that there would be no hatred.

If all the people spoke Spanish

Or if all the people spoke English

Or if all the people spoke Hindi

Promise me that there would be more understanding.

In a world which flourishes with diversity

Where everything and everyone is as unique as one can be

Why do we seek to conform  humanity to singularity?

There is beauty in our variety

So let no one take propriety

Let’s learn to rejoice in our differences with humility

and be united as one big human race family.

#251 – I realized that if I wanted to keep my sanity and not let others define me, there was only one thing I could do and that was to have faith in God’s plan for me.” Michelle Obama

After enduring constant criticism and finding it difficult to tune it all out, Michelle Obama realized she had to ignore the noise and be true to herself.

Two of my e-books are about women who struggle mightily to be true to themselves. .

We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by news and sms and non relevant forwards. 15 minutes of silence is a great way to start or end your day. I have recently taken up the Deepak Chopra and Oprah’s meditation for 21 days and should say it is helping me a lot. I feel more centered and able to handle the stresses of daily life routine more calmly. I now catch myself when I am chewing on past events or anxious about the future. My inner voice is finally visible and I would say I am finally listening to it instead of the critic who always used to put me down. So let this year be the year when you too take the time to sit quietly and focus on your breath. Turning on some pleasant music helps too.There are umpteen number of videos on youtube to get you started. So let us stop the excuses Of saying “I have no time” “I am tired” “I don’t know how to do” and start taking baby steps this year.
Start by creating a routine where we sit down automatically for meditation after a set of morning chores or even better to do it before putting our legs down from the bed. Once we allot the time and stick to it I am sure life will start guiding you through those quiet voices which we had shut out long back.
