About Me

My photo
I love the sunrise. I love staring out into the horizon in front of me, feeling the sun's glow, and losing myself in my own world of thoughts... I love being awake when the world around me is fast asleep, and staring into the distance at the tiny glimmering ball of fire as it shyly creeps into my world… Each sunrise brings to me a new day and with it a fresh start. An opportunity to do things differently, see things from a different point of view... but best of all, an opportunity to ponder over the day ahead, giving a new chance every day to live...

"Love someone Anwar, then you will know the truth of life."*

Living your life with love doesn't mean loving every one you come across to infinite insanity and back, it means to treat everyone with kindness. It has taken me a long, long, damn bloody long time to realise how unequivocally intertwined love and kindness are. Don't get me wrong, I was never a cruel person and I would never like to be so. But I never realised how much the best expressed form of love is kindness (although, of course, I would like to think I have been doing that throughout my life...). To love, really love, takes time and trust, but to be kind to everyone takes nothing, and yet the act says it right there and then, out loud, "I have love for you, and I want to share it with you and show you I care."

PS: Along with intelligence, I find kindness the single most attractive feature in a man. Why is being nice so under-rated?!

* The title is in reference to a dialogue from the Bollywood movie, Anwar.

I loved this post.

And I totally agree with you about intelligence followed by kindness being the most attractive features in a man!

Never gave this a thought until today.
Good post.

Aayushi - I KNOW RIGHT. I forget sometimes how incredibly sexy kindness is. :P

M - hi! Thanks for your comment, glad my being 'lost in thoughts' got you lost in thoughts too. May I ask if I know who you are, or why 'M'? Or is that just a passer-by's way of remaining anonymous? Either way, thanks for dropping on by and happy holidays to you!

I don't think it is. A lot of us recognize it and appreciate it. Some of us are just ignorant. Which is so sad, but so true.

Det-res, I am confused. You don't think what is?

I totally agree. Kindness is super attractive. And especially to others, waiters, random people on the street, etc.

p.s. love the quote!
