Rediscover Yourself – A Journey


Started a journey towards the unknown
to understand how I could handle the situation
without any help or support
carrying my weight all along

I faced many challenges in this part
they were unique and funny at the same time
this made me think how wonderful challenges are
they push me and make me a whole new person
all at the same time

These challenges when i overcame them,
i felt satisfaction and sort of relief
knowing I did push myself from the valley
but managed to land safe with some scratches

I created a habit to push myself in different horizons
to understand and learn how to deal with situations,
because life is a journey and when we set out
it’s always a learning curve even if we think
we have reached the pinnacle

The best thing you could do I feel is
spread your story across and share
your difficulties and how you overcame them
so that many don’t  face the bruises
which you did happily with a smile

How prepared are you – Do your Homework


Planning for a Childs future in terms of education is always in the top priority whenever you ask parents, education is that framework which will secure a Childs future and that’s why the emphasis on quality education is a set benchmark with parents who are willing to invest in their Childs education. Now talking about a Childs future, the basic research as a parent you would do is understand what does your child aspiration is and what does he want to become, I know that children these days get easily inspired after watching certain things  and it keeps on changing multiple times, however if we consider cost of education in any field today compared to say 1 or 2 decades, you will be surprised to know the inflation rate in education sector has been soaring more than 300%, now that can set any parent on the back seat considering how to plan financial with such high inflation rate for Childs future.

The trend in India as we might have observed from our parents, their friends, neighborhood and society is that firstly education funds are not always the set priority and its heavily dependent upon funds from FD’s (fix deposits), inheritance funds left by grandparent for their grand children and in many cases which is common these days is education loans which I feel is more of a burden which creates pressure for both parent and child.

I would give a fair share to my parents for providing me quality education, they definitely understood that education is a must for a brighter future and kept saving from the very beginning, however the saving were not enough to fulfill the complete fees and we had to opt for other resources however the intend was always there.

We are now an educated bunch of youth developing in India and we sure know the importance of Education but what we lack is the understanding somewhere about what could be a healthy and profound solution of saving for our child’s education? Mutual funds! How does that sound? Yes, with the ever growing and developing market, mutual funds investment has that right algorithm to fight the mighty inflation, as the investment grows and evolves with market at a brisk consistent rate.

The Guiding Light


Striding along the part
where life maneuvers me,
not comprehending where i am headed
but trusting the lines so true

Gravity kept me grounded
and the wind helped me move
to this ghetto where i headed
scary were my guts, so blue!

My mind refused to scramble
but my heart was leading the way,
creepy feelings accompany me
as i try to clinch my way through

Travelling through this phase
i behold and gulp in all those thoughts
which were hovering over my mind
and making me feel so insecure

As i moved on crossing, dodging
those valley of spooky feelings
i saw a light so bright touching me
as if it was the holygrail required
to push me all the way through
