Be brave, be selfish, be you!

I am me!
Meet me!
Greet me!
I am a speck of dust
Yet, I am important
You know why?
Because I am alive
Because I exist
I breathe
I laugh
I smile
I cry
I express
I feel
It’s all important
For me because
That’s what makes me who I am
And I am awesome!
Got any doubts?
Please, don’t ask!
Do I care?
Yeah, damn, I don’t!
I love vulgar words
I love to express myself
I love to show who I am actually
I care for you
I like and love you
But you’re never a priority
Because my priority is me
It was difficult to digest it
Learn it
And, thankfully, I did!
I am everything, I know it!
I am grateful for all the things
The sun, the sky, the moon,
the flowers, people, family,
smiles here and smiles there,
hugs, stolen kisses, winks
All the things
But, all of those stop existing
If I stop to exist
If I don’t take care of myself
If I am not my own priority
I am grateful for these selfish thoughts
It has made me happy
It has given me time to invest on things I love
I am happy to be selfish if that makes me happy
Because smiles here, on my face, are important
So are yours, but first,
smiles here and then smiles there
If it is smiles there first,
then for you, it is too,
smiles here and smiles there,
So always the first person,
I, me, myself
I am grateful for such happy times

Be brave, be selfish, be you!


Last weekend I went on a #soloTrek to Shivagange and I loved it. You can tell I am selfish. The hell I care. I love to spend time with myself. If you don’t love/like to be alone, trust me, you’re boring. Start making your life an adventure. Do things you fear. I feared to go on a solo trek, I did it. I conquered it. I was 2640.3 feet above the ground, bare foot, scared, but moving forward. I have shared pics and videos of the place. Feel free to go to the place, if you’re near by Bangalore.

P.S.:Β One of the new songs which I like to listen to is What lovers do by Maroon5.









Do you know what I did last February?

As I mentioned in my last blog Struggling days and me, I have resigned from my job because I got a good opportunity somewhere else. I did all the hard work in my previous job and I was not there to reap what I sow πŸ˜›

Now I am serving my notice and I can’t be sadder because of the bonds I have formed here and the love I have received. Still, one has to go for his betterment. My time has come.

It’s just that I hadn’t written since a long time and I DO NOT ever want to walk away from my writings or traveling. Everything else is fine. Jobs come and go, people come and go, happiness comes and go, love come and go. What stays is football and passion(writing/reading/video making) ❀

How was your Valentine’s month? Mine was good because I roamed with bloggers and attended weddings of Pratyusha & Nimitha ❀

Below are some of the pics–

And now, the best, i.e., Video about the trip and some gyan πŸ˜›

P.S.: April 2016 was special because I started Vlogging and my life has changed for the best. I have made awesome vlogging friends and people have heartily welcomed me as a motivational speaker and that actually gives me a great sleep in theΒ night. Today’s song is Who Am I To Stand In Your WayΒ by Chester Lee ❀

Highlights of 2015

“It’s been a long day

Without you my friend

I will tell you all about it

When I see you again”


And here we’re again. A new day, a new month and a new year. No doubt, 10 days are gone but still some part of the new-year-feeling is still lingering somewhere inside us. So, from my lingering feeling to your lingering feeling, a very Happy 2016 πŸ™‚


To understand life, we have to turn back and look at it. How we fared in the past. It’s time to think and make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes again and don’t feel like standing at the same square one, where we were last year.

Each moment is different and my last year was unique in its own way.

I was followed by more 450+ people in WordPress in 2015. Definitely an achievement for me. In the beginning of 2015, I had thought a total of 100+ followers will be my goal. But in reality, I reached to somewhat 500+. Cloud ninety-nine feeling πŸ˜›

More the followers, more the interactions, more friends. I have made many friends from this community with various positive thoughts. We all learn from one another here.

Books have also been an important part of me as I read many books like Hope we never meet again by Srinath(a WP friend), Journey of my life by Jithin(another WP friend), Brida of Paulo Coelho, Siddhartha, Bhagvat Gita and many more. I never thought I will read Bhagavad Gita, but I am almost on the verge of finishing it and it is brilliant.


The chariot in which Lord Krishna rides Arjuna to the field of Mahabharat and the teachings of Bhagavad Gita is imparted to Arjuna. This statue is outside of a hotel in Bhubaneswar.

I have started book collection also and have now 25+ books with me. Hope it will be 50 by the end of 2016 πŸ˜€


The best thing was I came close to nature. I traveled to places like Bangalore, Manali, Shimla, Amritsar and some native villages in Orissa itself. That really made me connect with nature. It has its own charm. A flower, so timid yet so beautiful that I won’t be bored looking at it for hours.

“Who doesn’t love music?” Old-me.

“Who loves music?” Everybody & Present-me πŸ˜€

I was not a big fan of music but since the month of September, every post I have shared here, I have shared a song with it. Many of you have also shared good music with me & that has really widened my music world. So, WordPress, Books & Music are done.

So, overall I learned to talk to people all over the world and read books and discuss stuff and traveling too πŸ˜‰ All in all, 2015 was a great year and nothing much can be expected more from it.

2016 has also started with a bang. I will write about that eventually because this post is all about 2015 and let’s stick to it.

Have a great year ahead and post as much as possible because that is what counts πŸ˜›

The ultimate champion

I don’t feel the same
Writing anything in
WordPress app
Laptop has it’s charm
Similarly one can say
Paperbacks has their
Charm than ebooks
And I can’t argue with
Them because we all
Are born with our
Own perspective
And our own views
And hence not anything
Is all right or all wrong
It all depends on
The people involved
And the situation they
Are in and
Life can be easy
And bearable
Blaming someone
For something
Won’t make things better
Understanding the situation
And convincing yourself
That whatever happened
Is for the good
Will make things
Better than the best
And if you’re lost
And not finding
A way to a situation
Surrender to it
Surrender to something
More powerful
To your passion
Of writing
Of painting
Of reading
Of sports
Of cooking
Of anything
Which comes from your heart
And that passion
Will pave a new path
For the troubling situation
You’re in
Easier said than done
Facing situations
Is the ultimate thing
Hiding and running away
May postpone it
But the climax
Is when you’re
There with a bandanna
And pumped up
Ready for the face off
Breathing deep
And focused
And in some few moments
The situation surrenders
As the enemy showed the white flag
Without the fight
Stand up
For yourself
And smile with all
You don’t lose anything
For trying at least..


P.S.: Happy weekend beautiful souls ❀ Faced anything like this before? Feel free to share and I am extremely sorry I am not able to read your posts but will be back to reading sooner πŸ™‚ Today's song choice is Hello by Adele ❀

The chain of extinct.. Hope to break the chain in future..

Blogging and writing has become a part of me since months.

But, in the past, there were people and things, which were also a part of me. But, now I don’t think about neither.

Will blogging also become extinct to me?

Do you people feel the same kind of confusions of life?

What I love the most is the blogs(no doubts) but also the way people share their thoughts/views/suggestions in the comments section and the author appreciates it and shows gratitude. So I would say, comment section is the best here πŸ˜›

What are your takes on blogging? And your future in it? πŸ˜‰


How to add permalink in WP in the simplest and perfect way.

This post is not about Rocket science. Nor is it about some breaking news πŸ˜€

It’s about just some basic WordPress information. I know most of us know this. If you know, then you can skip reading the post. But, don’t be harsh enough not to LIKE/COMMENT the post πŸ˜›

Coming back, it’s about adding a PERMALINK to the text.


I won’t tell the TECHNICAL and TEDIOUS method of linking a post/website to the text. It is via using the HTML section from the WP editor. And, you gotta have knowledge on HTML writing and add the URL link to <a>.[See the area marked as “X” in the image]

See, your interest to complete the post is decreasing already. So, skip it πŸ˜€

The easy way is :Β 

  1. Select the text you want to add the permalink to.[See the area marked as “1” in the image]
  2. Click on the insert/editΒ icon on the toolbar of the WP editor.[See the area marked as “2” in the image]
  3. Add the URL to the place provided.(You can open the URL in the same tab or new tab by using check/uncheck).[See the area “3” in the image]

But, there’s always a but πŸ˜€ You can see the extra other things also which you can do. And, these are the MORE essential things also related to PINGBACKS.

  1. If you want to, and you DEFINITELY WANT TO, let the person whose URL you’re using know about the pingback, then you HAVE to make sure you use a VALID URL.
  2. By VALID URL, I mean, there must be a comment box present in the URL you are using, so that your PINGBACK will be added there.
  3. Mostly, we use the URL of the main site as “”. This is not gonna notify the user, that He has been pinged back. Instead, if you use the ABOUT page or any blog’s URL, it will add a pingback and let the user know.

Thank you bearing with me through the most unimportant blog you read today πŸ˜€ Hope you have a better day πŸ˜‰

Happy weekend !!
