They say that there is a spark inside each of us, and all it needs is to be ignited. Once it is given the fuel, it becomes unquenchable. It consumes all that is fed to it, and comes out stronger. However, a flame which is still growing is easy to put out. A few dropsContinue reading “There’s a Spark in YOU”
He was so busy looking at the mirror, he forgot to look at himself. He was so busy seeing his reflection, he forgot to reflect. He was so focussed on what’s outside, he forgot there was something within.

We all have been running in circles. We have been running in circles ever since humankind evolved. We wish to get out of it, yet we are afraid of trying.

“And the man plummeted down the cliff, and fell for five straight minutes…” “Impossible! He would fall 450 kilometres in that time in vaccum. With air, it would still be well over a hundred. Unless the cliff was on the ISS, he couldn’t fall that long!” “It’s a story Ishaan!!!” The class roared, and sighing,Continue reading “It’s a story!!!”

Some thoughts: . When you think that the past was better, remember that one day, today will be that past. So live each moment to the fullest. One day, it will be just an unreachable and fading memory. -Ishaan

Today, I was struck by a strange idea. What is reality? When a man is awake, to him everything around him is reality. Whatever happened in his dream the night before, was an illusion. Yet when a man dreams, all that he sees is real, and anything else is not. So what is reality? HowContinue reading “Reality: Some thoughts”
