And the pain continues......

I couldn’t stop my tears to roll down my cheeks. I cried and cried and asked myself-“What was my fault? Did I disappoint you or let you down?” again I thought he might be kidding as he always does and trying to fool me but, he meant it. My mind was being echoed with his words and I was feeling as if someone is cutting me into pieces. Was our friendship meant to be broken in this way? “kritika, you are the one who is closest to me, even than me, myself.”- were these words a fake? Why did he do this?

Life, for me, had always been full of complexities. Since my childhood, I always had my own boundaries around me. The girl with strict and tough attitude and lots of expectations from life. I was always overloaded with the rules and responsibities being the eldest daughter in the family. I never had a life for myself. I was compelled to be matured by the circumstances and I even accepted it. I learnt to struggle with my pains and difficulties which made me very submissive as well a…

Camomile used to scare off rhinos

Camomile used to scare off rhinos: A remote Nepalese forest community has discovered another unlikely use for camomile - it scares away unruly rhinos.

Proud To Be What I Am

I am a girl with lots of courage And usually listen to Jason Mraz . I am bindass as well as disciplined Lots of expectations sometimes drive me insane. Poet to composer, dancer to Radio Jockey There is nothing I can’t be except lucky. Hate skinny jeans and all glam dresses The   plastic girls with Gucci sunglasses. I’m amazed to see the fashion haunted With high heels, short minis and lean thighs confronted. But it seems, I am the exception Amongst all skinny babes and their perfection. Zero size body and those fine curves Seems to attract everyone  but it gets on my nerves. All those dumbo’s and their puppets Wish I could disappear them in my pockets. I am fine to be what I am, A strict girl with big spectacles And  little fat at some layers. Big eyes, flat nose as well as long plaited hair I just love my family, friends and rest I don’t care. So, stop being showcase and try to be natural Needn’t be judged by my weight but by my morals……


Every time the cold breeze touches me,
I feel you have touched me.
                                             Every time the fair river crosses me,
                                              I feel you have crossed me.

Your smile gives me pleasure,
And your tears give tortures.

                                               Don't know..through which route,
                                               You reached the secret place of my heart.

Dear,you have conquered my mind,

And truly you have made me blind.

                                                 I don't like anything except you,
                                                 I don't like to see anything except u.

Yes, i have been mesmerized by you
Yes, I am in love with you......       

u me and our earth.....


Despite the highly trumpeted Copenhagen conference came to an end without any legally binding conclusions, we can’t deny the fact that the earth is boiling. Global warming has been a global warning today and if we still lag behind to cope its effects, we surely would fail to save our own existence.

On the late 1980s, scientists began to suggest that earth’s energy flux was no longer in balance, earth’s surface getting warmer affecting the elements of climatic system. By 1995,it became evident that main culprit was CO2 emissions produced by burning fuels, coals, gases and oils in factories, power station and motors. It is estimated that a typical coal fired plant generates 3,700,000 tones CO2 annually causing damage equal to cutting down 161 million trees. It also emits 10,000 tones of S02, 10200 tones of 03 forming NO, 77.1 kg Hg and 102.1 kg As. And hence, it’s obvious that the rich on planet are responsible for it. They owe their present luxurious lifestyle and prosper…
