What Makes Dogs Better than Humans?

What Makes Dogs Better than Humans? - My Take 
Do you know what surprises me the most? It is the relation between an animal and a human. How come an egoistic human who lives as though he rules the planet be friendly towards an animal? Whatever it may be, the most adorable friendship is that of a human and a dog. A man or woman can never get a friend who is as dedicated, devoted and faithful as a dog.
They will never judge you. If they like you, they show it whole-heartedly. A pet dog always shows compassion towards his human no matter what he or she is like. It hardly matters to them even if you earn less, don’t have a big house or a fancy car. Your appearance also does not bother them. It is the soul that they read and when all is well deep within, you will always be showered with kisses from your dog.


I have never adopted a dog officially as I feel you need to raise the pet like a child. However, there was a time in my childhood when I had befriended a stray female dog. She was a qui…

Are Dance Reality Shows Exploiting Kids?

Are Dance Reality Shows Exploiting Kids?
Superrrr se bhi Upparrrr – Can you connect to this remark? It is common in one of the leading dance reality shows on National Television! I am not naming anyone here but you know which show I am talking about! Not just this show but every dancing reality show I have come across is exploiting kids.
Have you seen these shows? I happened to see one episode and the amount of effort the children put into their performance is mammoth-like and what really irked me the most at one point was when a judge said that there are more expectations from the contestants! The competition level is simply going higher and higher with every new season of the show. Children are doing death-defying gymnastics and not DANCE! A little mistake can lead to an injury; this is what I feel as a spectator. Anything can go wrong at any point of time. It is highly deplorable to see such innocent children being used for showbiz. The judges are filling their pockets, the channel …

Life of a Freelance Content Writer - My Take on it!

Life of a Freelance Content Writer!
“So what do you do?” “Well, I am a content writer.” “Which company do you work for?” “I am a freelancer and I work from home”.
Hi Folks!
The above is a standard template used when people ask me about my profession! Some people are glad or may I say rather jealous to know that I work from home because commuting is a huge problem in Bangalore. Then there are some who feel that it is good that I turned my passion into a full-time profession. So, in this post I am trying to show you a few facets of being a freelance content writer in India! C’mon, I have been in this profession since 2014 and I guess I can do justice to this topic! Hang on in there because it is not a serious issue but a quirky side of the life of almost every freelancer into content writing.


Initially I was pretty na├»ve and did not know much about the tricks of the trade but as they say – time teaches you everything! I have definitely grown over the years as the number of clients grew.
How do…

Different Types of Cab Drivers I Have Met

Different Types of Cab Drivers
The title should have been – ‘Different types of cab drivers I have dealt with’ because this write up is completely based on what I have seen and felt while using the two popular cab services in India – Ola and Uber. I travel mostly by Ola so obviously I have a lot of stories of that particular cab service.


The Heartbroken Music Lover
Now, when you have to travel for more than one hour that too in Bangalore’s traffic and all you get to hear are songs that elucidate the pain of a heart break, it can be highly irritating. ‘Jeeta tha jiske liye, jiske liya marta tha, ik aisi ladki thi jise main pyaar karta tha’. (yes, I remember the song! Thank God it was not on repeat) All the glum songs crooned by Kumar Sanu! Not that I hate 90s songs but common yaar, it can make you gloomy after a point! Just imagine how my 1 hour trip would have been!!!!! An appeal to all music loving cab drivers: please stop playing such songs even if you have had a heart break because y…

The Best Way to Treat Acne

The Best Way to Treat Acne
Acne is more of a teenage problem. However, in my case it has plagued me in adulthood too! It got too difficult to handle in 2017. My entire face was full of plump red pimples that looked way too horrendous! So, I decided to get them treated but I did not opt for an allopathic treatment because I felt it would have side effects. Plus, many of my friends had to swallow antibiotics for months only to find the acne problem resurface again! So, what kind of a treatment did I actually go in for? Keep reading to find out!

Okay, no more suspense! I actually went for homoeopathy. Right from childhood it has been a saviour for me. In class 12 when the allopath told me that the only option for treating my tonsilitis is an operation, homoeopathy came to my rescue and cured me completely. It saved me from surgery guys! What else do you need? This incident further strengthened my belief in homoeopathic medicines. So, coming back to my acne story,…

How Technology Creates Difficulties for Senior Citizens?

Technology and the Difficulties it Creates for Senior Citizens
They are from an era when there was no television, the water was consumed from a hand pump and the best way to spend free time was by reading books (made out of paper!). How can all of us, the so called - ‘millenials’ expect them to do net banking, mobile banking and use apps on smartphones? By ‘them’ I refer to senior citizens, the 60+ parents and grandparents!
Some of them are actually catching up with the changing times but what about those who have been left behind? There are instances when there is nobody else in the house to coach the elderly and guide them about using smartphones. Yes, many elders live alone which is a sad truth but I am not getting into that. Now, do you think it is right to bombard them with terms like OTP, cashback code, PIN, Digital wallets, Re-CAPTCHA and the like? It only brings down their level of confidence and makes them feel dependent on others. As children it is our primary duty to assist …

What Happened in the Last 5 Years?

Hello everyone!!
I know, I know it has been a really long time since I have posted on this blog but it feels good to be back after such a long hiatus! The last 5 years have seen some significant changes in my life. Keep reading if you want to know what they have been! Let me tell you that they were the least expected ones!



The first thing that took place was a change of careers. My passion for writing got turned into a profession. Yes, I began in 2014 and today I have 5 years of experience in content writing. Instead of joining any firm I chose to be a freelancer. You must be wondering why! Well, as a freelancer I am self-employed and have more than one client to write for. The work-from-home scenario is the best for me as the work-timings are super flexible. I can shut-shop at any time of the day as it is completely my call. I guess most of you would relate to me if you also work form home! At times it does get a bit boring because you have no colleagues to talk to. However, there i…
