Back in 2010…
I started searching for personal development advice online—and got disgusted as hell. ‘What’s with all this jargon? Why don’t these personal development bloggers write in plain English?’ I muttered. But then I realised I was not the only one to have that complaint—most people searching online for personal development blogs had to cut through a sea of crap to find little to no useful information.
‘What if I could give readers personal development articles in plain English? That’d be cool.’
So, I started learning more and more about personal development —and also started sharing what I learnt—through blogging in 2011.
On this page, you shall find links to articles that’ll help you understand many personal development topics with clarity (no bullshit here). Feel free to read, bookmark, or even print them (if you like the touch of paper)—good luck.

Read on to find out if meditation is really for you.
At times, life can become too much of a burden, and committing suicide seems like an excellent idea. But will killing your body kill you also? I know it CAN NOT. And how do I know? Well, I have been there, that’s fucking why—you’ll see.
Religion. Nationalism. Hinduism.
‘Ghor Kalyug!’ my father exclaimed. ‘What happened?’ I asked. “People are complaining that the “Bhajans” I play on loudspeakers early in the morning in our Lord Shiva Temple disturbs their sleep —their buffaloes start jumping while they milk them.’ ‘So what father? They are right. What does religion have to do with Loudspeakers anyway?’ He didn’t utter a word. Just a “Sigh.”
‘Yes, I am a nationalist, a Hindu nationalist, you see. Moslems must be kicked out of our country unless they chant Bharat Mata ki Jai.’ OK, I get it, you are a nationalist. But wait, are you, really? Let’s see.
‘The Hindu firecrackers cause pollution on Diwali. And so Hindus must stop bursting firecrackers on Diwali. Rest of the time it’s OK—New year eve, IPL matches, celebrity marriages. And don’t you argue with me, I am a liberal, you know. I know better, you fucking RSS clown.’ There we go—say no to firecrackers—but hey, only on Diwali.
Social Media. Television.
‘What does it matter if I am not cool, sexy or adorable? I can take a selfie, apply some effects, make it super sexy and post it on social media. You know, my Instagram followers can make me famous (and the hottest chick on the planet).’ You think people hitting “Likes” have the power to make you beautiful? Well, think again.
I turned off my TV in 2015 and haven’t turned it on since then. And it won’t show any goddamn thing even if I turned it on, you know why? Because I unsubscribed from all the services. So basically, I killed my TV, and it’s dead for good. Wonder what made me did so? Read on.
