Why is it that our caste or religion is way more important to us than humanity and the greater good of people? I wonder what these friends of mine would be like if the people of ISIS or other such terrorist organizations belonged to their caste as well. They would have certainly cried every time a terrorist was hanged to death by our law and protested against it in the same way they did for the reservation.
One day, we sort of overdid it and were way too late before we could reach home. It was already dark and there was no way that our parents would believe that we studied for so long. I reached home at about 8 o’clock and my parents asked the obvious question as soon as they saw my face.
“Sorry” is one of the most commonly used words by people these days. We are taught when and how to use this word from the beginning of our lives. As frequently as people use it, they seldom mean it.

These myths have ruined a number of relationships just because the people involved in them had unrealistic expectations from love. And if there was any hope left, it was killed by the fancy world of entertainment – movies and TV shows. They show such a dreamy picture of love that the real love fails to meet the expectations of people.
It’s not easy to decide which things to keep and which ones to let go. Then there are certain habits everybody has that they should let go off sooner than later to find some relief and inner happiness.
Sunny Leone, on the other hand, accepted the fact that sex is a beautiful, entertaining and liberal act, and decided to be a part of it without caring about what others’ opinion might be. She did something that all of us dream about doing but do not have the courage to do so — follow our hearts.
You live only once and this is your one and only chance to do what you really want to do. You can live in fear and continue to lead a life of mediocrity or you can learn to let go of secure paths and choose the kind of life you were born to live. The choice is yours!
The reason I wrote this post is that without us realizing about it, we really give people around us a hard time by just bragging about our goodness and selflessness.
