Grab the 'E' in 'Ego 'and let it 'Go '

There is something 'special ' in 'rains' that makes everyone smile: for different reasons though . 

Long back, may be towards the high school we learnt and studied the meaning of the word: ego. Your ego is your conscious mind, the part of your identity that you consider your "self." If you say someone has "a big ego," then you are saying he is too full of himself.





Today, after moving on a long path with mixed road conditions, I do value and understand what is it being ' full of oneself '.

Yes, it is a big thing when one is successful, has achieved a lot in a short time frame and more so has all the tick marks in life which are considered to be mandatory, one tends' to be a little in the air  .  

Now, flip the sides and see people around you. 

Your parents. In the whole world you can never be, even remotely, try to be ahead of them, better than them or even to close to them. Yet, parents listen to all your big and small needs and stay modest all through this journey ~ Admire. Learn.

Your teachers. Across all the educational journeys that you may have undertaken, our teachers are way ahead of God let apart you. They have seen those little kids grow big and do big things yet you remain the same student for them. Humility is what they always had .

Friends and peers - They accept you for the way you are and are unbiased towards you. Being honest is a trait you can borrow from them . 

And in the working life look around you. Your supervisory chain, leaders all across are not only calm and patient people but have utmost dignity and respect for everyone who works with them. Patience. Leadership.

And yet, after being met, stayed and interacted with all of the above we all have a little bit of  'E' going on for us.   

Why do we have this 'E' when one day things will fall down, nothing is going to stay forever and life will eventually move out and write you out.

I am not a spiritual or a motivational speaker but ‘love’ is a great medicine. Love is the only emotion. Fear is an illusion.Be loving and spread the love.

Complaining keeps us locked in negativity, right? I mean, think about it. Who wants to hang out with someone who complains all the time? No one. So why complain even to yourself? 

This is the source from which self-disgust, self-hatred, and self-sabotage springs—and the ego loves it, this self-imposed separation.

And lastly,just be grateful. 


BTW- Its raining outside and its so very beautiful . Like me in case you also love listening to songs , this one is pretty cool - Listen to this song

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
