Unfounded fears, irrational beliefs Confound and confuse me Is it a phase in life Or life is phasing away Many new experiences Many new people The expectations from another To live the way You think is the way Forgetting that each of us Have our own special way ! What […]

Leela of life !

Krishnan found this poster on pinterest and I have read it almost everyday since he found it. I feel like adding more things to this – we are an amazing species… we complicate everything ! We first create plastic and then kill the earth with “plasticfills”, we then find ways […]
