Dear letterist (Stranger),
I know, your soul is suffering and fearing the end results. But believe me -- you and anyone reading this, will get through this phase, just keep that smile on your face.
Struggles will lead to sucess and patience will light the inner peace. We are together in this pandemic maybe on different boats, but in the same ocean atleast.
Release the CHOAS
Feeling to shut the door and scream loud?
But don't know what to scream about?
Then just take a deep breath and count your blessings! 🙏 And experience things changing overnight and nothing will remain to fight. 🤗😊

In 2016, the storm outside reflected the one inside.
There was chaos in the room, and my granny's body was on the floor. The moment of silence directed at the impending doom.
The concotion of silence and chaos are the basic elements of life, and at that point my life.
People started leaving the house in a while, but the repercussions of the demise were subsiding inside.
The storm seemed to be over for the outsiders, but the insiders were aware of the emerging new storm inside.

To my friend-cum-strength,
There were days when I lived in oblivion, and my potential was unknown to me and the world.
Then you came into my life like a knight in shining armour who was ready for a roller coaster ride with me! You chose to hold me tight and gear me up for a fight.
Suddenly the gumption to achieve something came into light, and by the end of the day I was ready to fight.
But, unlike Karan Johar's films neither my middle class status had a Gucci packing nor the sets were larger than life!
Keeping the facts aside, I was ready to enter the corporate world unaware of the impending "BLOOM".
I managed to dodge many fake offers, which wer...
We live in a world where each one of us has a battle to fight. So, should we share our plight? Or choose to keep our lips tight?
What if we choose someone to share, and they can't help but stare and say -- what's the use of suggesting anything to you, now there is nothing that can help you.
All I have told you in the past was hardly followed. So now you better swallow that emotion.
I don't blame them as I know they have their individual battles to fight, and this time I will fight with my demons day and night...
Revamp your SOUL
If you feel to stop feeling lonely, you need to get into a relationship then please understand that it's a myth.
You can still feel LONELY!!
Work on yourself and understand that no one ever will love you like your family and discover the potential of self-love.
Value your emotions and the inner abundance. @vabond_thoughts

To an overly competitive friend,
I love the fact how enthusiastic you are to win the world and add a feather in your cap.
But I fail to understand why you have to measure your success based on people around you?
Has this rat race made you a sadist? Do you feel satiate by putting someone else down? Comparison in your head and around.
If that's the case, then it's time, I shake you and tell you that you are miserably failing in the real game. You might garner the worldly pleasures, but won't be able to fill the void inside.
Before it's too late; recognize what you quench your thirst and pride with. Not everyone is not answering you the Truth.
I want to be B.L.A.C.K.
L – Love
A – And (be)
C - Caring
K - kind (of human)
The habit to love yourself more with each passing day and staying with people who are loyal and respects your individuality is addictive! 🎉
Burst the Bottle (MYTH)
Don't talk about people, talk about the person you want to be,
Talk about the existing intolerance in society.
Talk about your mental health as you talk about the new Netflix series,
Most importantly, talk about the things that send a chill down your spine and push you to the not-so-comfortable zone.
Can't understand the feeling of being alone amidst the circle of loved ones!
Is it the pandemic or darkness residing in my head that compels me to be on my bed?!
Open letter -02
To the FIRST man who ruined my idea of love,
I know after reading this, you will know it's for you, and that's why I won't mention yours or anyone's name.
Just like any normal evening, I ran downstairs, leaving my half-filled glass of milk. As usual, she would reprimand me for not finishing it, but I was always eager to meet my best friend, and this became my usual.
But to my dismay, she had her homework to finish. So I was waiting for her outside, somehow passing my time.
Then YOU came, I thought now it's going to be a fun time, but how could this gullible soul predict that you are here to shatter her idea of love and trust.
We took a stroll, and out of the...
When you see life taking a turn and adjusting with the New-Normal, but you aren't sure if you are ready for humans AGAIN!
Open Letter SERIES -- 01
I knew you were hurting inside, and you felt alone (many)sometimes. I know alot has happened in your life. I know that you occasionally turn to your vices and that sometimes you feel like you need to combat the whole world.
Things have considerably changed, still there must have been some days when your past or demons might have tried to enulf your present and must have compelled you to go back to your cocoon.
But don't forget to show them that you are a force to reckon with!
Recalling your past won't be right enough, but it's time I praise you enough.
You sat on the shore alone, but didn't let your pictures scream your pain...
Understand the UNSAID
The thinking hat always occupied my mind and the choas inside -- engulfed the desires.
Alot of what I spoke was out of compulsion, but the real ideas and wants were enclosed in my thoughts.
You don't need to open my diary anymore to know what I think! The pages don't contain or comprehend the unsaid words anymore, just like you.
Turning the pages, and starting again is of no use, the words will again be misunderstood and I'll be left with unfulfilled desires....
In the midst of struggling to be Heard....
The soul felt tame and don't know whom to blame.........
The SUNDAY of 2020
Nothing was same, the freshness of air felt alien, and all this felt like a game.
The fear to lose your loved ones always stayed somewhere hidden inside, but now corona was roaming outside.
The noise of vehicles were replaced by the 'roars' of birds who were ready to welcome new species admist the cornona noise.
Now, the fear was real, but humans gathered courage and started walking outside and killed the virus instead of visa versa. @akansha
Dear First Love,
Years have gone by, tears aren't anymore glued to my eyes.
My vision is no more murky, but the memories of the past have faded with each passing night.
But the habit of praying for your
well-being still ignite the memories of "friendship" I experienced.
Hope our paths don't cross in this life time again, I'm okay being your well wisher because now I have a new "ship" to sail.
The SHIP which is just mine, and I'm no more willing to sacrifice for a pirate or iceberg!
Experience will allow me to sail it right and soon I'll reach my La La Land!
The Retrieved SOUL
The limited me, the limited you, can ignite the residue.
Let the past burn, but this time with the facts and no chapter will be due.
Be the passage for my bloom and not for my DOOM.
The key is in your hands, unlock the right door this blue moon!
Everyone saw me from the same lense -- Mrs perfect.
All I wanted to be was a bit messy and desired you to clean my mess.
I'm tired of being labeled as PERFECT all I want this time is to fall and give you the chance to lift me.
Do you even know you need to?
I should sleep as people around me are oblivion of the imperfect 'me'.
Maybe in the dreams, you will become my knight who I have envisioned day and night.
Parameter of Parental Love
When I would have produced the first shrill cry, was I also compared at that time?
I might not have the desire to conquer the world because I am a child who is born to serve the world.
I don't aspire to be on Forbes List but to rank on the top of your best child list.
I can never earn equal to him, but someday, I will earn more than Him.
And maybe then, you would choose me over him, and it would be a reality and not my La La Land.
Fear of Confession (s)
There are times when we end up saying things for fun and then discover the repercussions...
All we want to do after that is appologize, but it's too late to mend their minds!!
You can be looked at as a pervert even by the males, it's all about what you choose to say.
Saying sorry won't mean anything and they won't get it how embarrassed you are left feeling.
All you can do is never repeat the same and understand that their is no reason to be ashamed.
Speak your mind and let your wit rule you. They will understand if not today then some other day! Remember just don't let them rule you ever again and mistakes happen, there is nothing to be scared of i...
The Fear of LOVING....
The Desire to be loved is present in all, but the way we emote can change it all .
Waiting for the right guy to arrive or the present one to compromise can vanish our desires.
So, praise what you have and date with an open heart and don't let the scars make noise.
Where are WE SAFE?
Is there any place on Earth where we can feel safe?
I doubt that, what do you think?
The last place could have been our mother's womb, and that is the only reason I'm waiting for my doom!
Regardless of your gender, you can be the next on the list and then wait for them to hit!
Defending yourself can hurt them, so are you ready to kill them?
What is right, what is wrong ?
So many questions, but not even a single answer is available to quench my thirst!
AND SHARE WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!
Reading books, spending time with your loved ones! There can be a never-ending list. But if you ask this question to yourself when you feel low, it can make a world of difference for you!
Pro Tip: Try to make an individual happy everyday and the best part is you can start with yourself! ❤️
JUST a REMINDER
Be kind to someone you haven't been.
Don't measure their strange behavior in terms of arrogance. Rather spread positivity, and let them absorb it. ❤️
Death BY MY SIDE
Today was the first time I felt like I won't be able to make it ....maybe just maybe, I won't be able to see tomorrow's light.
And the worst part about this situation was that the feeling didn't look alien it was rather comforting..
Looked like NOT-SO-SCARY place!
FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE
By happy place I don't mean luxury, familiar places, or people.
It can be a combination of these or none of these...
It's about the self-discovery, peace, and satisfaction that alien feeling that feels like HOME.
SO, get out of that blanket and don't let melancholy or self- sabotaging your happiness attitude stop you.....
Keep the journey continued till the time you don't find your HAPPY- NOT-SO-FAMILIAR-PLACE!
