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.

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...
