Just another thought!

"Ignorance is bliss."
I bet everyone is familiar with the above quote. But is that really true? I mean if you don't know something doesn't mean that is not occuring or wont occur. Just cause a little kid doesn't know that The Earth revolves around The Sun doesn't mean that its not happening!

Expressing oneself is something that we've been taught or have to teach ourselves to inculcate over time. Cause no-one is a mind-reader. If we don't express ourselves, we won't be heard. And it's vital to be heard. There is so much that bubbles in the human mind, kind of like a gigantic traffic network. If we could watch the neurons working on time lapse, we would be stupefied at what is going on. This brilliance needs to come out. Cause you know when there would a problem? When these amazing ideas and not so amazing ideas are buried within. There's this giant of a problem that arises then. It's called depression!

Psychiatrists all over the world are earning millions of bucks! Why? Because people are too paranoid to express themselves. Do you ever see the trees depressed? No, cause they sway as they wish. Do you ever see the bees glum? No, cause they buzz as they wish. Do you see the sun ever stop shining? No! Well there is the night. But that's just your perception. The sun never stops shining. You just don't see it shining for a few hours. So, basically all these things in nature are blissful because they have the liberty to express themselves as and when they wish. They just never stop expressing themselves.

What if the trees suddenly said, "Hey! I'm going to keep the oxygen to myself". What if the bees suddenly decide to put the manufactured honey in private vaults. What if the sun decides to stop shining on us and says i want to keep all my brightness to myself. Not only will they be perennially unhappy but also the world would pretty much cease to exist. The most splendid and enigmatic part of the humans is the human brain with the intricate mind. It is our most powerful yet the weakest tool. It's up to us which side to bring out.

So express yourself all you can. Be straightforward and honest. No need to keep things private if they make you unhappy. Take the liberty to speak out cause its a free world. And there's limited time you have here in this beautiful planet. Just go ahead and grab the day!

Switzerland on a Budget : How I Flew Round Trip for just 25000 Rupees and other facts !!

Yes, you read it right. I've had to book last-minute one-way domestic tickets for 14000 INR, so even I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the round-trip ticket price from Bombay (India) to Geneva (Switzerland) -- JUST 25500 INR.  How did I manage to pull this seemingly impossible feat? I flew with Kenya Airways (the pride of Africa) from Bombay to Nairobi to Geneva. I was a bit skeptical about the airlines (especially after the Ethiopian Airlines incident in march 2019) and I'd googled for reviews after booking the tickets (smart, no?).  The reviews were mixed but after having flown with it I can honestly say that it is a wonderful airline! Good food, entertainment, and tangy lemon moisturizer on board (my hands get super dry while flying) jhingalala!! And also I booked the tickets almost 3 months in advance. Total Budget ?70,000-80,000 INR. Duration? 7-8 days.  Visa? You need to apply for Schengen visa either directly at the Switzerland embassy in New Delhi or via…

Switzerland (Un)Explored, Italy (Un)Touched - Switzerland Itinerary (Part 1)

This July I was supposed to head to Kenya with my family but somehow that didn't work out (my sister didn't get her passport on time because of the cyclone Fani. See how it's all linked?) and I ended up going to Switzerland instead. Whatta luck! :D 
Switzerland had been a far off dream of mine, up until I saw the roundtrip ticket fare from Bombay to Geneva to be 25000 INR. I mean, that seemed too good to be true. I didn't think twice and just booked the tickets impulsively. (To read more about the amazing deal click here!!)  So, over the next few months, I got my Visa ready, booked hostels, and noted the places I definitely wanted to go to. (Although maximum credit to my mausi/aunt for finding the most wonderful and offbeat places, I loved them!)
My flight was scheduled at 4.45 PM from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Bombay. It was my first tormenting experience with the infamous Bombay rains. I left my cousin's place in Navi Mumbai at around 10.30-11…

My One On One Encounter With Cyclone Fani That Has Devastated Odisha As We Know It

Cyclone Fani | 3rd May 2019 | Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India

I remember waking up that morning and looking out of the window at the swaying trees. Slowly one by one they all fell down. After a while, the wind stopped blowing. Everything came to a standstill. We thought the cyclone had passed. Little did we know that it was the calm before the storm. Or as my little sister sang, "Yeh to trailer hai, pura film dikhane aayi."

The wind returned, at least 3 times mightier than before (200kmph we later learned). This time it was scary af. The glass windows were rattling as if any minute they would burst, the entire house was shaking and then we heard a loud sound as the asbestos roof of the staircase landing fell with a spine chilling thud. 

We were saved by mere minutes.

Because we had gone to the roof to get a better look at the surrounding. We were immensely lucky that the asbestos didn’t fall on us. Hours went by but the cyclone showed no sign of stopping. The wind was making a whistl…
