I have never planned anything in life, everything just shaped itself. On my part, I have just made sure that I live every second king-size because life does not give you a second chance and you don’t wish to look back after 30 years and sigh that you could have enjoyed so much, had you done this, had you done that…had you decided on this…had you decided on that– Sandeep Balan when asked about his life
“Study” is a very inappropriate term here.By using that you are giving me an indication that you are not loving what you are doing.

We need some stress busters at the end of the day! There are only a handful of people who attempt humor. I believe its the toughest job to make people laugh at your jokes. It’s very easy to put across your emotions but to cook something up which has people in splits, its damn tough!
I do understand the importance of what I have created. I do understand the importance of being able to live…I do understand the importance of being able to breathe. I do understand the importance of being able to inspire. I do understand what “Writers Lounge” means for me
Blog is the inhaler I use to clean up my choked nose called “life”. This choke can be defined as “struggles” which can only be decimated when you use a support system. Blog for me becomes that. Ensuring that i breathe freely. Every time!
That’s how life is. A never ending search. Things are never hiding from you, they are searching for you all the while. All that is required is a stroke of luck and some efforts.
1) Beautiful eyes – because eyes are the windows to one’s soul…And I would love to see me when you look in those eyes. Because I think when you are soulmates your soul become one

3) Love – Showering me with her unadulterated love 24×7…

There is no definition of true love. No one knows what is true love. There is no explanation anywhere given that defines “true love” for you. It is what you think and likes to believe. I have never seen a couple when they are in love fall short of branding it as “true love”. And then they break up. But that does not mean that “true love” is non-existent. It is like a flower which blooms in a desert.
You don’t know what caused it to bloom despite the unfavorable circumstances. It turns out to be the one drop of rain that found its way to make the flower bloom. The flower knows when it happens, so does the raindrop realize that it has been the reason for the flower to bloom. Its the knowledge. The acknowledgment. The understanding. You know. You don’t have to force-fit true love into the scheme of things. If it is, you will know. You feel the difference.
We inspire…We intoxicate…We create magic… “T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R”even a letter missing would end the spell
