Time with self can be therapeutic

Loneliness.
Perhaps the single most disease which plagues human race today. It can drive people crazy and can be even suicidal  as indicated by the news papers everyday.


Every-time, I hear -
I was bored as I had no one to enjoy my weekend with.
I got bored this Saturday, there was no one that I could talk to.
I fail to understand why people  try to run away from themselves.
Why do people not talk to themselves? Not hear to yourself?

Loneliness should be oxymoron as we always have ourselves.

When you are alone, close your eyes and put on some music - think about the best day you have had, dream a little and think of what you want to be doing 10 years from now.
Try talking to yourself about the dream that you have or hobby you want to pursue.
Try reading that book which you had bought but have forsaken for the lack of time.

Remember, you are a damn good person and you should love your own company before someone else will enjoy your company.

Remembering Tej...

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
