What is sacred to you? I read this word in HPMOR recently and it kind of stuck with me. I love this word.

I have been going around asking my friends what they deem sacred and it came as a surprise to me that people were astonished and couldn’t think of things on hearing that word. It saddens me 😦

Now, if I take it on me to come up with things which pop into my mind when I think of the word SACRED then I will also be surprised myself. But on further thinking, I can think of READING A MEANINGFUL LINE/PARAGRAPH IN A BOOK tops the list ❤

Lately, I read STUPIDITY IS DOING THE SAME THING AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT and I was left aghast at how perfectly it was written.

I feel sad that we have lost touch with our soul. I fell sad that we don’t know WHO WE ARE? I feel sad that we end up all our life running after things that won’t matter ever. I feel sad that temporary pleasure is all that matters to us. I feel sad just because I haven’t felt sad for a long time. I feel sad because feeling sad is all I can do as of now.

But what can we do? What can I do? I am sad and devastated. But then a ray of hope comes thinking about those times when many of my friends asked me WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIFE? WHY DO OUR SOUL CHANGES BODIES EVEN AFTER DEATH BUT ITSELF DOESN’T DIE? WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE LOVE TEMPORARY PLEASURE MORE? and I feel happy because we ask the right question. Above are the right questions. I admit that I don’t have answers to it. I admit that most answers won’t make me feel satisfied. I admit that I am happy that the questions are correct and someday we’ll get the correct answers.

It might be so that the time will be gone and it’ll be late. That’s okay, but, we would have definitely reached our destination even being late. It’s all about timing, I understand, but there’s no roadmap, no help, no guidance, no successful history, and we discover successfully WHO WE ARE? WHAT HAPPINESS MEANS TO US? WHAT IS URGENT AND WHAT IS IMPORTANT? WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE FOR THE FUTURE GENERATION? If we discover some of these, we’re the winners, maybe LATE WINNERS, but still smiling ❤

P.S.: As always, I don’t think my post makes sense much but such confused is my way of thinking now. To clear it all, to become #sacred again, I am going for a trek this weekend to Kodachadri, Shimoga. Will post the pics ❤ If you have not already, do subscribe to my YouTube channel, Darshith Badiyani.



How was the weekend?

For us, it was a long weekend because of Diwali. But as always, the weekends rushes by at the speed of light and the weekdays drags itself at the speed of a snail.

We’re back again in our respective cubicles, doing our respective work, savoring our respective favorite coffee in our respective mugs 😀

So, as we’re talking so much about PERSPECTIVE, let’s talk in details.

We all have our respective perspective of Life 😉 As Dirish says, “We all have our own A take on Life” and that’s true!

Since last many a weeks, I have been learning things. Things related to perspective by talking to more people, by listening to them, by trying to see from their POV. It is helping a bit but it’s difficult to think from their perspective.

I think all my life(which is mere 26 years), I have been trying to look at everything from my perspective and never think about the other person. It may be because of several reasons. No one pointed this out to me earlier, hence I didn’t realize it. Now as I am being questioned, I am feeling cornered that how can anything be wrong when the perspective is correct?

POVs are a great way to express our thoughts and again a great way to get out of any situation, but when we realize that our perspective has been defeated and that other’s perspective is more purposeful and right, then what do we do?

That’s what I am going through. I am not saying, I am wrong or I am right. I am just saying that I don’t see my POV as the BEST anymore and that I have to consider other’s perspective too.

There’s a quote by someone very talented, “We judge those whom we don’t know, and if we don’t know them, why do we have to judge them?” 😀


I don’t know why there is so much of confusion within me nowadays that it’s started to make kind of a mess. I sincerely feel like the above quote by Mr. Lennon ❤ I love that guy and his words and his songs. This quote, in particular, is close to me. I feel like a loser and God, all at the same time 😀

Hope I can sort things out sooner rather than later. I think traveling will help me and I am doing that now on a regular basis. If any of my friends are available then with them or else I love to travel solo too ❤ What are your preferences while traveling? You like to pack everything with you or you keep it light? Do you call yourself a traveler or a tourist?

P.S.: I was reading one of the previous blogs of mine called REINS and I loved it. I loved the flow with which it was written. The connection, the beauty. Now when I sit to write, it’s all confusion and haphazard and not pleasing. Recently I am listening to an old favorite song Bubblin by Blue.

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









Mistakes and how to analyze them

We all do mistakes and some of us do blunders, including me. But, wise people are those who learn from their mistakes and come out victorious by not doing the same mistake purposely.

“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.” – Johnny Cash

Wanna know what kind of mistakes I have done?

  • Not listen to my parents in some of the situations, which led to my loss/harm somehow.
  • Not trying to save money even after working for around 3+ years. I should start using a piggy bank.
  • Buying so many books a regular basis(No! This ain’t a mistake), but not able to read all those books is. I cry at the sight of those beautiful creatures sitting there in the cupboard and all I can do is bat my eye.
  • I am a selfish guy. See! There it is out in this universe and I feel relieved. I have been telling this to most of my friends and frankly speaking, I am getting various reactions. Why am I doing this? Because we all are selfish and I want everyone to accept it. Just try to think and assess.

I can keep on going but all I want to let you know that we’re full of mistakes and we gotta accept the fact that we have to keep on evolving to have a good life so that we learn more from our failures and mistakes than our successes.

If my cell phone falls from my hand, it’s because I was careless or because of something other or someone else. If the same is done by someone else, I start thinking that they did knowingly.

So, to tell in short is, my mistakes are granular in size and other’s mistakes are humongous or blunders.

Ideally speaking, this should not be acceptable, but, as humans, we tend to do it. We tend to be impartial and follow favoritism. Now, don’t tell that you’re not your own favorite. I love myself.

So, before getting angry and trying to judge others based on their mistakes, think by being in their shoes and by being rational.

Good luck and do check out my video on the same topic.

P.S.: How are you, people? This is Rains of Castermere from GOT. Just 1 more month for GOT new season ❤ I love B’lore and my life. What about you? Do you love the place where you stay? Do you love how you spend 24 hrs of each day? Please do share your thoughts 🙂












Taming my own demons

It’s difficult, just like everything else. Or, it’s easy, just like everything else.

Henry Ford rightly said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.”

With me, it’s the same. And I am sure, with you all, it’s the same too. But my inner heart says that most of us just fail to have a strong will power of DOING IT.  To have a strong will power means to have a strong character. To have a strong character means to have a strong guidance throughout our life(childhood, youth, and next). To have good guidance means to have good people around ourselves everywhere(home, office, friends). So finally, to have good people around ourselves, we ourselves have to be good first. To be a good person, we have to be good at heart.


To become or remain good we have to tame our demons, regularly. It’s similar to an app’s update because new changes and features keep on coming. Or, new bugs like the Ransomware virus ruling the market since 2 days. So, it’s important to evolve and keep on taming our demons to stay good and then only good things will happen.

How to tame our demons? Good that you ask. First, we have to be strong mentally to face them, keeping aside our fear of facing and also the fear of losing. Then, we have to prepare for the face-off. What to do when we actually face our demons? What tricks we can play? Like Mohandas Ranchod Das’ words from the Movie ‘3 idiots’, i.e., ‘Aal izz welll’, we have to keep on reminding ourselves that no matter the outcome, it’s always in our favor or whatever happens, happen for a reason and we just have to try and forget about the outcome.

Taming is not an easy process and a time consuming one too but it definitely gives the expected result if tried regularly and with dedication. Many try to stop smoking or drinking or biting nails(yeah, that’s me!) but we fail the first time. Forget the first time, we fail the 50th time too. I have always failed in the case of biting nails but in the back of my mind, it’s there. I want to get rid of this bad habit and someday I will. When I will be mentally ready and then, I will let you all know about it.

We have to keep on fighting and trying to be better the next day always. That’s the key. One of the other reasons is in the below video. Feel free to have a look.


P.S.: Today’s song pick is All my Loving of Paul McCartney. I love this song and this guy and Paul is in Pirates of Carribean 5 movie so it will be interesting. See you soon and how are you all? Miss me? Want me to travel to a place? Want me to gift you a book? Please let me know in the comment section ❤



The engine or the driver?

Woah! I am on fire lately because I am reading books again regularly. It’s maybe because I have switched jobs and I am getting some more ‘me-time’ than usual or because I have fallen again in love with books and I am spending quality time with them.

I am observing things and all this observation is leading to many findings. I am compelled to think whether I am a driver or just an engine? Am I a leader or just a soldier and a warrior? Because the engine faces the accident first. Because the soldier dies first.

What made me think this? Maybe because I am not doing things differently. I am not thinking out of the box. I am rooted. I am scared of change. I have started loving my comfort zone.

To become a driver, a leader, I have to leave all this and start doing things better, forget my comfort zone, and start thinking out of the box. I am ready to think that I need change but am I ready to embrace that change? Am I ready to expand my comfort zone? What do you think?

I know that I don’t have any other option and that’s the best thing for me. I have to do it all. I have to suffer and I have to toil hard and I have to get things done. I have to smile, smile from my heart and be satisfied with my efforts.

Being content will make me a leader maybe because I will be in total control of myself and the outside factors cannot affect me. For that, I have to be satisfied and also find inspiration from others and my surrounding.

Below is my video about how I find inspiration from people.


I am trying my best to be a leader but for that, I have to keep on learning and expressing my knowledge via actions.

P.S.: I have been just a name in the Blogging world lately and I am trying to turn the tide and be back with more frequently. I finished ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ book and now I am reading ‘The Girl on the Train’. Till that, keep smiling and enjoy Capsize of Frenship and Emily Warren ❤ Promise to see y’all soon 😛
