The magic pill .A panacea for everything.Post 12



What if I told you that there exists  a pill that can reverse ageing, keep you looking younger than your years, keep you fit with the energy levels of someone half your age, keep you healthy by fighting all kinds of issues like blood pressure, diabetes, back pain ,arthritis and many more, would you be eager to know what  this pill is?

What if I told you that this magic pill costs nothing and in exchange for the name of this magic pill, all I want is a little bit of your time and effort, wouldn’t you be interested in getting this pill?

I have been taking this pill for the past twenty six years. (Yes, I started on this when I was 13. I am 39 now and quite proud of my age and never do I try to hide it :-) ) It has no side effects whatsoever. I can vouch for that. Initially your body might protest at being subject to this pill. You may have aches and pains. But be patient and think of the many wonderful ways in which this pill can benefit you. Continue taking it. Take it even when you do not feel like it. Take it especially when you do not feel like it. Soon the aches and pains go away and your body adjusts to this new intruder. Gradually the intruder becomes a friend you cannot do without.  If you do not have your time with this friend, something feels amiss, something feels ‘not right’ even though you may have had enough time with other friends. It is somehow not the same.

This pill has helped me such a lot really. I have become addicted to it. I am dependent on it. If I miss it for even a day, I feel ‘not-so-good’. When I am stressed out and ready to pull out my hair and scream, this pill helps me calm down. This pill also gives me a lot of mental strength and clarity in thinking. It is my hope on a dark day. It is my sunshine on a bright day. It is something I cannot  even imagine being without. It is so much a part of who I am.

This pill is easily available in the market. You can get it too.

Have you guessed what this magic pill is? If you have, give yourself ten points.

  6. 10 points for me tooo!!!
    YOGA is truly powerful. I had Asthma trouble and was on medication for 7 yrs. I attended Sri Sri Ravishankar's Art of Living- Sudarshan Kriya (http://www.sudarshankriya.net/)

    I must say the results were evident from day one. I stopped the medication long back. I guess more awareness needs to be created amongst people.

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
