I started writing for Women's Web two months back. I haven't written many articles though, just two in two months. I am always looking for topics to write, and quickly discarding every idea as 'not good' without even trying.

Jerry's mother was bipolar. It began when he (her second child) was born. When it got worst, she tried killing herself several times, by jumping in front of a bus or cutting her wrist or running off with Jerry, a toddler, on her tow.

It is after a long time that I have completed a book in one sitting. The last time I achieved this feat was with Jhumpa Lahiri's 'In other words', in 2016. The two long years were totally worth the wait. What a shame, I have not discovered Jerry earlier! I have not even heard or … Continue reading EM and the big HOOM- book review

It is easier to meditate when on a bicycle. It is easier to meditate while running. In fact, it is easier to meditate anywhere, anytime- if you just know how. I have been juggling between cycling and running from last one week. Running becomes monotonous after few days, if you keep running on the same … Continue reading Day 90
More than two months ago, I took this resolution of 100 Days of running. Last 70 days were amazing. I never thought a resolution as tiny as running could change me and my life in such tremendous way.
