“I love you”- the most commonly used line in today’s world. However, do we remember what it means anymore?

Relationships- they could be either a hub of happiness or a fountainhead of tears and despite all the history we learn, despite what we see around us, we’ll never really know which one of the above two options fit in best with us unless we see it for ourselves.

Family, friends or your special beloved; Can we pick one person to stand by us unconditionally? Can we, i...

What is love? This tiny four-letter word has millions of versions when we try to define it. However, I always had just one interpretation of this most over hyped feeling- Love is God, as simple as that. It’s the purest kind of feeling that is the glue between two souls.

Hence imprisoning ourselves in our se...

The human mind is the most sophisticated machine on earth. Supercomputers & many species enhancing inventions have come out of it. Our thinking capacity is superior to all other living beings on the planet & it’s a gift.

We have the power of a vivid sense of memory and a fantastic sense of imagination. But, unfortunately, we have mistaken this beautiful contrivance...
