Love thyself! And be proud of it!

“You are so much in love with yourself” “You are always so fond of yourself” “You care a lot about yourself” I have heard these phrases so many time I had to write about it here. My question every time someone says something like this to me is- when and how did we begin to…

Book Review: The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins

Freedom of mind; blessing or a curse?

What do you want to do? I want to live as a dreamer. (Imagine the stillness on my father’s face) This sounds silly. To many, its a very immature answer. To a soul searcher like me, this is the essence of life. The greed for material and love for freedom of mind can’t co-exist in…

Adultery by Paulo Coelho

After a continuous hype about the book & since im a fan & follower of the author on twitter, I couldn’t resist reading the novel, even though I hated the storyline of the novel “eleven minutes” by the same author. The movie is all about love, falling in love, the restlessness you feel in your…
