Compliment.


It was a sunday morning and I had gotten up a bit later than usual that day.

During breakfast with my family, we were having our usual discussions when I noticed that the house was all clean and my mother looked a bit tired. When I asked her if she was feeling okay she slowly replied, “I was just doing all the household work since morning and then today I also cooked your favourite meal.”


It struck me how much effort my mother takes for me on a daily basis. This is just one of those countless subtle moments when, if we take a pause, we will realise the efforts that some one is putting in for us. Its those kind of moments when we should verbally give a compliment or say thank you.

Sometimes we wonder what difference would it make if we do or don’t vocally appreciate our near dear ones… Maybe we make excuse to ourselves by thinking that the other person is just doing their work as usual and take things for granted. Let’s not take things for granted anymore. Let’s not keep our thank yous for other days. Let’s take a moment now and today.

Do you know that it’s a fact and many studies also show that complimenting or genuinely appreciating someone creates a positive impact on the person. It also helps to build their self-confidence and motivates them to continue with their good deeds. So keep spreading positivity around.

P.S. – Try to compliment one person in your day and see the magic and positive vibes it reflects in your life. ­čÖé

Feel the fear but do it anyway.

Sometimes small things scare us. First we stay in denial, then we delay in accepting it and then finally one day we deal with it.

From a very long time, I have not been uploading doodles or my writings on my blog because I’ve been afraid. It’s been a strange feeling. I’ve been afraid of being judged for my work and have also just wanted to put the best out for my readers.

Still a bit anxious, but uploading this doodle for you.. ­čÖé

P.s. Hope this quote lightens some of your monday blues. Do tell me how you feel about it. Also, share your experiences if you have ever faced a similar situation like mine.

Will things ever change? #mentalhealthIssuesAreNotaTaboo

We sometimes ignore people’s messages when they want to talk to us. We call them names or crack jokes when they might be already upset with their lives. If they share their problems, we call them ‘rotlu‘. If they say they are depressed some of us shun them as if it’s a taboo. We forget we hung out with them in good times when we get too busy to be with them in their bad times…

We all have done such things sometimes.. either directly or even being a silent spectator to someone’s misery. Today we are shocked, tomorrow we’ll forget. ­čśę

This isn’t a one-off case. There have been many Sushants previously and there may be many like him in our circle too.

According to the WHO, 1 in every 4 person suffers from mental health issues. Sometimes children to sometimes elder people, people from humble background or the high-end class of society. Your class topper, office colleague, your doorman or maid, the guy next door. Anyone literally.

We are all posting about mental health. It’s great. Let’s put it in action. Let us be kind and compassionate. Let us be approachable.

And beyond social media, let us build true relationships with people who’ll hold our hands when things go wrong.
