Be Simple

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda ~

Let love kill you..

My dear,

Find what you love and let it kill you.

Let it drain you of your all.

Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.

Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.

For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.

Falsely yours

Charles Bukowski

Toofan kiye hue..

‘ग़ालिब’ हमें छेड़ कि फिर जोश-ए-अश्क से

बैठे हैं हम तहय्या-ए-तूफ़ाँ किए हुए

Being tough..

I was going through deep and silent water. Nothing and no-one could make me happy. Nothing and no-one could make me sad. I was tough….which is probably the saddest thing you can say about a man.


Fate gives all of us three teachers, three friends, three enemies, and three great loves in our lives. But these twelve are always disguised, and we can never know which one is which until we’ve loved them, left them, or fought them..

I went to Mumbai last weekend and the cabbie who drove me to Cafe Leopold was named Shantaram. I remembered this quote.
