I won’t lie. I wouldn’t want to relive the first half of 2016. It was the worst blow my heart’s taken in a long time, but to be honest if I was given a choice to erase that year out of my existence, I wouldn’t. Because no matter how messed up the first half of it had been, it was one of my favorite years in the almost-30 stint I am heading towards. I am assuming we’ve all been through a breakup that’s opened a gap within the center of our chests with constant pain spilling out. And mine was…Continue Reading

It’s been seven years since Michael left us all but our wounds are still fresh and yet to heal over that news. As we all know, it’s his birthday on 29th August, which was yesterday. My favorite artist, Maati Baani published a cover of MJ’s Heal The World with all the child artists from around the world, that also includes some of my favorites such as Sparsh Shah. But this time, it’s not only about the cover but the nostalgia of childhood memories, of being part of the school choir and singing this during annual day! It is what these…Continue Reading
I am in the studio, warming up for my dance session. Someone plays a Michael Jackson number and the room suddenly feels electrified. I have often wondered about this man. Wondered what made him, HIM. I happened to watch his live “Beat It” performance and I am serious, I couldn’t get my eyes off the guy. *Zero bias because I ain’t an MJ fan. Surprise, surprise!* He moved like a dream. And I am not talking about a ballerina-who-is-so-amazingly-delicate dream. Nope. I am talking about raw energy. I am talking about souls. I am talking about total FEELS. In his…Continue Reading

But pursuing what makes you feel alive is not all candles and roses. Though it’s totally worth it, trust me. Through the…Continue Reading

I still picture myself being at home or playing with my friends while suddenly the news of a mishap broke out. It’s…Continue Reading
