We once had a conversation with a friend who's building up huts and a campsite in Assam.
We will be planting mustard seeds all around the property, he said with a smile. It will be so beautiful and yellow when it bloom.
Not having the faintest idea what a mustard plant looked like, we just smiled and nodded. We assumed mustard flowers are the same sad, dark colored as mustard itself.
Until we saw this mustard field on Majuli River Island, that is. It's safe to say we now understand mustard's appeal.
You don’t get everything in life and it is important to know when to give up on your dreams. Even if you don’t want to. Even if it hurts. You have to realize when somethings are not really meant for you. And that’s okay, because there is so much else to do in this life. You will find something else which will almost cover that gaping hole in your heart left from your dream.
It’s okay. It’s okay as long as you can let it go. Because sometimes, things have a way coming back to you if they are meant for you.
So, stop torturing yourself. Stop obsessing over it. Stop surviving it. And for some time, just live and be happy. Because, honestly, there is so much else to be happy about in this world. .
You just have to choose what that is. You just have to choose what makes you happy. But you have to choose. There is only so much that you can leave on fate.

I always love the way mountains make me realize how tiny my problems are, every time I visit them. Humility, Discipline and Simplicity, the more we stick with these three words, the more god blesses us, that's what I learnt from mountains.
वक़्त की क़ैद में ज़िंदगी है मगर
चंद घड़ियाँ यही है जो आज़ाद हैं
इनको खोकर मेरी जान-ए-जाँ
उम्र भर ना तरसते रहो| P.S. In the end, we will be judged by the courage of our hearts
One day I shall become what I want,
One day I shall become a voice
Over frozen parapets
Blazing across the wonders of winter
pushing the cold off my shoulders
with airy effort, calling every soul again.
And everyone shall listen.
जो भी दीवार उठाती है गिराती है ये शाम
शाम के वक़्त बहुत धूल उड़ाती है ये शाम
ठहरी ठहरी सी थकी-हारी मुसीबत में घिरी
ऐसा लगता है कहीं दूर से आती है ये शाम
एक बे-नाम सी उलझन की तरह फिरती है
शहर से रोज़ मज़ाफ़ात को जाती है ये शाम
घोंसले हैं न घरौंदे कोई कुटिया न चराग़
देखिए आज कहाँ ख़ैर मनाती है ये शाम . ~ शाहिद लतीफ़
Standing at 3500 m above sea level, somewhere in the Himalayas, on New Year's day I recall my days at @mahindra_auto.
Every new year we used to look back at the year gone by, make a list of things gone right and things gone wrong and make a list of improvement areas for the coming year.
Its not that I didnt love my job at Mahindra, it was great working for them and I am thankful for everything that I have learned there.
It was just that I loved the Himalayas more. So I quit my job last year and co founded @thesearchingsouls
With 3 of my best friends @vishal_0619 @lp.mukesh @shubham.agarwal.12
So much had happened in just a year. We have had the best and the worst moments of our lives in this one year. There are things which went well and things which went terribly wrong but together we grew stronger.
Now, together we aim to reach greater heights.
It is Draupadi ka Danda peak in this picture that I am looking at, I will be at its base camp in the coming 3 months training for my basic mountaineering certificate. That is my way forward.
Its my story so far from an engineer to a mountaineer.
And I have only one thing to say, live your passion, do what you love and it will never leave you astray.

There is something very beautiful about a woman empowering another woman.
They say, women are their own worst enemies and it really feels that it takes time for us women to compliment other women (except for the club restrooms, we are best friends with everyone in there 😐) .
We like something but mostly scroll through and never appreciate, I too never had that habit of taking a pause and letting someone know how great I think they are and I still have to work on it.
Some positive words could mean a lot to someone. It could stop someone from giving up on things. May be someone is going through a rough phase or a rough day, those two words can heal someone.
Anyway, the point is every girl gets these dms from random guys initiating small talks and sometimes it gets a little too much amidst our busy lives and own set of friends, but when I get a msg or comment from a girl appreciating something I instantly feel so good about it. Well, in no way do I mean to sound sexist but this sure is a rare thing and I love when that happens. It doesn't mean other people's messages mean any less, but when girls do it, it's a lot more than hi, how are you, let's meet, it's pure admiration or opinions.
So keep that love flowing ladies, Empower one another!! We have enough hate to deal with already!! Let's spread some love.
Go compliment someone and know that you are beautiful, don't let anyone tell you otherwise ❤️
