MOON BASE

MOON BASE

I've heard that many people have "flying dreams", nighttime visions of soaring through the sky like some kind of superhero or a magical human-bird; however, I doubt that the majority of those people have flying dreams akin to mine - ones that are often more frustrating than enjoyable. This type of dream is a recurring one for me. Every few weeks or so, it will pop up in my sleeping mind. I can't decide whether I look forward to it or not, but regardless of my wishes, it's with me for the good, it seems. The dream always begins with me speeding across the sky. The landscape below often differs, but the one that appears most often and did so most recently closely resembles that of seaside cliffs. Flying through the air, skimming the water as a weightless, human airplane, there's nothing I would rather be doing. It feels incredible to have the wind rushing in my face and to watch...

Inner Joy (A Happy Heart)

Inner Joy (A Happy Heart)

“Happy” is just a word. It doesn’t mean anything more than a random jumble of letters that I decide makes up a word. Happiness is a rush. It is also a slow burn. It comes all at once but it also builds up like a plotline with intense suspense. Everything builds up to one apex. It can’t be something superficial, or something that only lasts for a day or two. It’s something that affects your entire life. It lasts. It burns inside of you and it doesn’t go out. That is happiness. Happiness is a warm feeling. When we are happy we feel a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. The journey to happiness is not achieving success or having enough things, it is not productivity or affirmation from others. The road to happiness is a life of purpose where our desires extend far beyond meeting our own needs and into the rich world of service to others. How we feel...

A Mother’s Wisdom

A Mother’s Wisdom

An hour past midnight. The cold winter winds blew in through the open window & I tightened my grip on the blanket. My room's door was shut, the phone placed on my ear turned static. I couldn't believe the words I just listened to. "It's over. I can't be with you." The sentence screamed in my mind and I realized it isn't a dream. A sudden gasp left my mouth followed by loud sobbing. I knew everyone's asleep so I muffled my mouth in the blanket. 10 minutes. 15... 20... 30... An hour... Two? Or more? I don't remember how & when I fell asleep.  A heavenly morning. All I remember is the next day my room's door was ajar, the sunlight warming my cold face and illuminating the room with a shade of white. Everything else stood as still as it was last night, only more brighter than ever. I wondered if I were dreaming it. "Good morning, Alfred." Ah, no. Not a dream. I heived a sigh...

I’m blue, I’m beautiful!

I’m blue, I’m beautiful!

Is that what we wake up to every day? From time immemorial, appearance has been foremost in humans' mind. Humans are judged by their physical appearance. Thus, it is not surprising to witness mankind, especially women from all walks of life desperately try any means possible to achieve the perfect beauty. However, beauty provides a perceptual experience of pleasure and happiness. It has no relation to features of our face or body, but rather character traits and qualities. Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly lies to the bone. Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own! Create and cultivate inner beauty that never fades away but grows and matures with time! Especially women in our society need to realize this fact and change our perception of the way we see beauty. What should be regarded as requisite in someone? It could be their pleasant character traits, or some might name it as the word soul. People with inner beauty are those that love...

ZODIAC PROGNOSIS

ZODIAC PROGNOSIS

The life of a being in one round chapter. If you are frightened of dying & still holding on, you will see devils tearing your life away. But if you have made your peace, then the angels will retaliate and the devils will ask for mercy, freeing you from the earth. The fact people are taking a horoscope post so serious is comical. Horoscopes don't determine the way a person acts and treats people. I'm a Leo and according to "moderate believer" we are the devils. Personally I wear my heart on my sleeve and bend over backwards for good people. It's all about our heart and mind and the way we act within. As mentioned by Victor Hugo: "How can one possibly believe, that every ray of a star is a thread attached to a man's head?" We shall overrule our stars and have a greater influence upon planets of the firmament . Astrology relies heavily on our "selective memory", a tendency to remember successful "predictions" and forget missed predictions. Play...

13 Reasons Why.

13 Reasons Why.

There was a time when she was ashamed. Ashamed to step out of the door. To be judged by those eyes. To be looked at, by those who owned the eyes. She didn't hate the dresses her mom chose for her, she hated wearing her own skin. She didn't hate being called a "slut" or a "whiny bitch", she hated her own name. Yet she survived. She survived the mess her life had become, she got back up everytime she was let down. She fought her own demons and untangled her tangled strings. But for how long? For how long would a heart crave for love? For how long would a heart crave for someone to see through the window amidst the walls, built by itself? How long....? Post Script: The story of Hannah Baker, live and in stereo, though a fiction, it's the darkest and the purest one I've ever read/seen. It may not be your usual TV series, but it's one that would make you re-think your world. It's one story that would re-shape...

Wide Awake

Wide Awake

I tried to get sound sleep, again. This time, the dead woods stood with a leaf blower on my roof. And that neighbour still won't muzzle. It troubled my thoughts. That keep me restless. Wondering, if I will ever find peace with my mind. I lay my head upon a weeping tree to be one with the earthly leaves. ©The Honest Fabler- Pooja Mukherjee ©Image source- Google Images...

Remaining lives: None.

Remaining lives: None.

Remaining lives: None. She gasped. I tightened my grip. She pleaded. I tried not to hear her cries. She struggled. I didn't like that she's afraid. She was tired. I knew the climax is near, "You'll be free." She turned rigid. I saw her eyes roll up in her head, the moment had arrived. She was pale. Emotion, pain, heat she could feel none. It was all because of me. Her gateway. I was a hurdle she had to conquer. Why did I do it, you ask? I did it, for her. She was in pain, But I knew what she had to gain. It was freedom. And what better freedom than being in her purest form? As a soul. Never trapped in a body. So, I did it for her. I snapped my cat's neck on a bright afternoon of summer. ©The Honest Fabler ©Image Source- Google Images...

WOMANHOOD

WOMANHOOD

|| Womanhood || The word which was alien to me struck in my mind. Out of curiosity, I went to search its meaning from the "Collin's Advance Dictionary" which states —Womanhood. The state of being a woman rather than a girl. I'm not sure whether the dictionary talks about only physical or mental status into account or not. So, the very term is baffling to me. I remember once my father called me in the house when I was playing Holi with some guys and girls in the street, albeit, I played in the same manner last year. His strange behaviour puzzled me. I went straight up to the terrace and watched my brother who is 10 years elder to me continue having fun with them. I was given no valid explanation for such behaviour, apart from the concrete statement that "I'm grown up now". I still didn't find out what does that "grown up" meant at that time, I always wondered, "Have I attained...
