Immense love for words!

    It's never to late to be what you could have been  Nor is it too late to see what you could have seen Be right now where you should have been And say only what you wish to mean Time runs and will some day run out Then don't wonder what this was all about Don't just look for things you love, but scoutLast thing you should do to yourself is doubt Free your mind with all that clutterTalk to yourself, don't just mutter Make others happy, do not flatter There's a life out there beyond Facebook and Twitter Sun doesn't fail to rise, Spring doesn't fail to surprise There's a reason why we see dreams with those eyes Please be silly sometimes, its stressful to be constantly wise!

    That awkward moment when you leave a store without buying anything and all you can think is "act natural, you're innocent".

      There is a world out thereWhich doesn't always function fair, But it is up to you how much to careand whether it's worth all the scare Be firm and stand your groundLet your courage know no bound Don't just be there, go ahead, astoundIt's easy to be in a herd, but be the hound This world is for us to shareWhether it's a turtle or the hare But create a world that belongs to youWhere you stand tall and it is your favorite view - Kalamwali

  • Woman, you are beautiful!
    Kalamwali | 03-Apr-2016
    You. Yes you. You look great. Now please don't try and hold or pinch a piece of flab on your body and say if only you lost that much, you would look better. No. You look great the way you are. You were born to be an individual. You have been the best looking girl child for your parents. Then why prove them wrong? If every woman had to have a perfect body, flawless skin, tight assets, wrinkle free ageing, and all that the global standards of beauty have enlisted, wouldn't we all look the same? Cast out of the same mould? And how interesting would the world look. We would all look like clones or robots walking around just like a scene out of a sci-fi movie. I too, was (and to a certain extent still am) a victim of wanting to be "perfect". I have spent years, working out, eating right, reading about weight loss, researching about what garments would make me look 'kind of' lean, etc. I gave up on many foods only to find myself cheating and binging on them at many occasions. And soon after, pacifying myself to be

    The strength of a woman lies in being able to attract and hold anyone's attention without feeling the need to showing her skin.

    Over a span of merely six months, a wave of optimism has taken over the state of stagnation which lasted us a decade. The term of a prospect "Super Power" doesn't sound like a rude joke anymore. The daily news includes national achievements too now, rather than just national scams. "Achhe din aane wale hain" doesn't seem like only an intelligent election campaign, but a journey towards something positive. There is a sudden leap from the state of 'self pity' to that of a 'go getter' as a nation. All of a sudden its not about a district, a state, a community or a section. Its about what is geographically known as a country. What happened at Madison Square less than 48 hours back created history. One man, on a mission , with a vision, and the conviction was able to tune millions of minds into believing that his campaign was for real. As I heard him speak, I saw the way status updates and messages on social media changed from indifferent/negative/critical to proud/optimistic/patriotic/respectful. Its hardly a mat

    When I sit down to watch these reality shows sometimes, I tend to carefully observe the judge's comments. Most of the times mine match theirs but sometimes if they don't, my instant reaction is, "what a dumb judge". "And he/she gets paid to judge plus gets to wear all those lovely outfits plus gets to decide someone's destiny for the moment?". "That's what I call a dream job". But subconsciously all of us, especially us women, are always at this dream job. The only difference is that neither are we paid for it, nor does our opinion matter and most of all, its unsolicited. But we still continue to do it. Judge people, judge situations, judge behaviour, judge appearances, judge the judgement even. 'Oh she's got so many tattoos, seems to be a wild chic', 'She's doesn't know how to cook, bad upbringing', 'She's always out of the house, wonder who looks after the child, and why to give birth if she wanted to stay out all day?' 'Always well dressed, must be a spoil brat from an illustrious family', 'He's joined his

    So this afternoon, I watched the most coveted movie of 2014, "Mary Kom". Needless to say, an array of emotions ran through me in those two hours and even after that. A Biopic, that too of a sportsperson who has surfaced from that part of the country which most people in our country don't even know exists, is heart wrenching to watch. If I treat it like a movie, yes there is entertainment and drama plus the songs and a brilliant background score. If I treat it like someone's real life, there is so much to learn. So much to be inspired by, take back, ponder upon and apply in life. Yes Mary Kom as a woman should be worshipped in our country, given the way she fulfilled her dream in spite of all the gender biasness, family pressure, hierarchy and ego issues of all those who didn't matter to the sport and motherhood. She defeated all that came in her way with immense bravery. And this will touch any woman's heart who watches the movie. As at some point all of us have in some way let something or someone derail us

    My this write up may cause a stir or may not be received very well with many. But I still feel the need to do this. This whole ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has divided our generation in two halves. The ones who have taken this challenge, donated/not donated the money, done it for fun. And then there are those who have refrained from taking this challenge, which is fair enough. There are also a few who are going on aggressively writing against this on social media. I am personally no one to judge anyone's actions or opinions, but I take this platform to discuss about this. The challenge takers are being criticised for wasting a bucket full of water when water actually is a limited resource and should be utilised wisely. I agree. Completely. But in this ice bucket challenge, there is literally not more than half a bucket of ice+water. If that really is a concern, one can easily use that half a bucket of water less while bathing (quite achievable I think). About people not having enough drinking water: How many of u

    Mardaani: Star Cast: Rani Mukherjee & a brilliant supporting star cast!! Director: Pradeep Sarkar Yash Raj Films. This is an extremely fast paced unconventional Bollywood movie. The story revolves around Shivani (Rani) who is a Crime Branch Officer, living with her partner, a level headed doctor and her 12 year old niece (an orphan) in a humble set up. Shivani is passionate about what she does and is in every sense Mardani. She hits like a bad cop, hurls abuses, smiles wicked where necessary and gets her work done. The other side of her is a loving and caring woman just how every woman is. She and her niece have befriended/adopted a girl from the signal who is the same age as her niece. Its beautiful to see something like this as its totally believable. So one day this girl "Pyaari" from the signal goes mysteriously missing from her shelter home. This is where the story begins. Shivani takes it upon herself to find Pyaari, and burst this racket. Its heart wrenching and stomach churning to see how these young

    Sometimes we live in a bubble and surround ourselves with things that become unnecessarily important for us. We don't really need these things for survival but we put a lot of our life into them. This is exactly what had happened to me. I was lucky enough to be able to live in a lovely house in a plush locality of a city, which is otherwise known to be brutal to most who come here with dreams. I had more than required resources to spare which pushed me deeper into the bubble where it became a habit to be the centre of attention wherever I went. Mostly for what I wore and how I wore it. This was feeding my ego. Obviously I must thank my provider for it as not everyone gets these extra, extra resources. But I think I was losing myself deeper into this bubble. To rewind a little bit from my bubble state, I grew up in a very different atmosphere. It was far from the Glitz and the glamour I was getting myself used to. That does not mean that I studied under the lamp post or had to walk miles to get to school. Nor

    I am a mother to an almost 4 year old, extremely sharp and emotionally aware girl child. She was born to me after a very emotionally challenging pregnancy and a very long labour where I almost lost consciousness due to some error in treating my labour pain with adequate sensitivity. When I regained consciousness and held her for the first time, I promised her that I would never let her feel unprotected or unwanted. I don't know why my heart was promising her that but I just wanted her to know that she was the most gorgeous looking life I had seen and I would make sure no one ever made her feel otherwise. This had somewhere risen out of the constant pressure in todays time and age to look perfect, feel beautiful. As she grew up, she obviously turned out to be a gorgeous toddler, extremely happy and a flexible baby. She had, or I can say still has that shine in her eyes that make her connect with anyone. She has the personality whom everyone wants to be around. even though she has never looked like me in her fe

    A road less travelled often takes one to a destination so unique and an experience so virgin. Ticking the 'to do' list of a destination is an agenda of a traveller. But tapping what's beyond the famous 'to do' list is the passion of an explorer. If a diary of a traveller who has just returned from Spain is glanced upon, one would certainly find mentions of Tapas, Paella, Flamenco, Antoni Gaudi, Soccer, Bull fighting. A diary of a more passionate traveller would read, Tomatina Festival, night life of Ibiza, quaint little nudist towns with heavenly beaches and more. But an explorer's diary would enlist beyond all this, right into the depth touching each angle of Spain's versatility. Arguably one of Western Europe's most multi faceted offspring, this country has something to offer to each category of travellers and explorers. Right from pristine beaches to Europe's highest mountains, glitzy cosmopolitan cities to traditional tiny villages. Here are a few elements of less explored but breathtakingly gorgeous Spa

    The Country is free, it's people aren't, Thoughts are forward, actions aren't, Words are inspiring, approach isn't, Knowledge is plenty, it's application isn't; Resources are abundant but their usage isn't. Such is the state, our so called fate, but it's never too late, remember this date when things will begin to look great. -KalamWali

    MY DEAR CHILD, Being a parent is not easy. But being a child is equally difficult. You are loved immensely and that isn’t easy to deal with either. Because I love you, I may want the moon and the stars for you while you may just want for yourself a candy and some crayons. You are exposed to so much more than I ever was as a child. More options, more emotions, more expectations, more rewards and of course more stress. Stress of abundance. Even a Birthday Party is no longer about cake and wafers. It’s about a theme cake with fondant to go with a theme party serving finger foods and personalized gifts as back presents. I know this is not what you choose. This is what I choose for you.     Subtly I do to you what was authoritatively done to my grandparents, openly to my parents and out of habit, done to me. But my dear child, as the world is changing, so should I. I may make choices for you out of my belief that I know better, but I want you to know that you are allowed to say n
