Stop, let go.

Stop, let go.

Stop, let go. Just stop. You have been running since long. Just wait here. Take a nap. Calm down and then go. Just stop so that you can see around. Stop and see who else is there. Wait and check if your direction is right. Observe and appreciate the efforts. Just wait here until you catch your breath. And then start again with an enthusiastic scream. Stop and look around. Look and be perplexed by the sight. Take a moment and cheers to those wheels. They kept you on go. And also to the will inside. Appreciate it. Hail to it. The snow on path is dense. Will be. Make sure you don't make snowman everywhere. Snowman are interim. Be the sun that melts them or the snow that makes. Stop, while the dense snow melts out. You deserve the ease. The path hadn't been simple. You chose the right. But now, stop. Right there. Understand that you no more need to understand. Be free of it that weighs you down. Shed it off. You are done. Start to let go and stop holding it...

Unsung Heroes

Unsung Heroes

I lie to you dressing in cheap clothes, an old duffel and pretending to be a cable operator. I lie to you washing your car, doing over jobs and making you think I'm poor. I lie to you. I lie to all. and you live on thinking you know me. you know my name, or perhaps the name I told you was mine. you know what I do, and not that what I do is lie. I lie of being a software developer. I lie of working on the weekend. I lie about going to the conference. I lie about all the meetings with the clients. I lie about my whereabouts. I lie about the deals. But perhaps, it is all true. I disguise to look poor. I act as a wallflower. I tell you the truth, and so I scream to all, but all of them are too blind to see perhaps you know me as I'm a software developer deciphering the coded messages working on the weekend as I kill a few sleeper cells conference with the mission operators disguised meetings...

Unpaid Loan

Unpaid Loan

An unpaid-loan is the most stressful thing in the world. But of course, to those who care to repay. A loan, left unpaid, leaves us with a feeling on uneasiness. A mindset, which constantly forces our attention to the incomplete thing. More or less, it is like a unfulfilled responsibility. Loan is a mere borrow-return agreement. But the care is to be taken that the borrowed commodity is not exploited by you. Perhaps we have forgotten the same. The world we live in is not an ancestral gift, but a loan approved and sanctioned by our future generations. We do not own this, but have borrowed it and are bound to revert it in the good condition that we got it in, if not better than that. It is our responsibility to care for this beautiful gift but not forget it being an unpaid-loan, which we must return. Every single element of it, should be intact and should remain so. We have lost...

Master of Death — Story behind something huge.

Master of Death — Story behind something huge.

Becoming the Master of Death. If you're a Harry Potter fan, then brace yourself and skip the next few paragraphs.(You can still read the quoted story to get nostalgic.) But in case you're a muggle, I'm sorry but you'll have to read the next few paragraphs to really get the depth of what I'm about to reveal. Have you seen the symbol before? If your answer's yes, then skip to the quoted story. If no: Popularly known as "The Deathly Hallows". Rooted from the Wizardry World presented to muggles(humans) by J.K Rowling. The symbol is a representation of the three gifts given by Death, itself, to three brothers.(Don't worry you'll understand everything in the story.) The triangle is the Invisibility Cloak. The in-circle is the Resurrection Stone. The median is the Elder Wand. Do you know what they really mean? If your answer's yes, then why the heck are you wasting your time reading this? I told you to skip to the QUOTED STORY. You're still...

My first steps.

My first steps.

Hola amazing readers and fellow bloggers! This is to tell you all something I've been planning to do since the time I got my very first 30 followers. I remember Deepika has been there since Honest Fabler had only 2 followers. Kudos to the humble soul and every person who has considered Honest Fabler good enough to be followed. Now, back to the topic. Back then it was something I only dreamt of and said to myself "Bleh." Well, turns out I was wrong. And thus Today, it gives me immense pleasure and butterflies loaded with excitement to announce that- thehonestfabler.wordpress.com will never be the same from this Saturday i.e. 15 April, 2017.

It's all because of you guys that this is even happening. If it weren't for your criticism and...
