As I look out the window of the local coffee shop, the rain began. It began drop by drop, then all at once. As the pellets hit the concrete, two words formed on my tongue: treacherous beauty. Just like your first breakup, when he says "I love you" one last time as the understatement of a goodbye. Just like the time when you shed one last tear, after reading the sad, tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet. It was treacherous, but beautiful. It gave us something, a new beginning, a new understanding.Th...

War is a decision taken by grownups, but who really pays the price? Children...those little angels are supposed to live a fully happy childhood. They should play and study and have a family and nothing to worry about. In other countries children sleep on explosion and alarm sounds. They wake up to find they lost everything. Many say a child becomes an a...

Our successes start off with a dream, and it's up to you whether you have the courage to pursue this dream. Everyone has a goal in life they want to achieve. However, a lot of people are afraid of failing which can lead to loss of hope... and the dream fades away. I'm here to tell you that failing isn't the end. Failing leads to growth, and growth leads to knowledge. Combine these aspects together, and endless opportunities await.If you have a dream you want to make come true, you have to expect...

Mostly we all know how to manage success. However, most of us don't know how to manage failures. FAILURES! We can approach this word in two ways. First, you can throw all your confidence in to the failure box and bury it in darkness. The second approach is to grow and face your failure!The first way is very simple. Its even possible to achieve when we do nothing towards that failure. But the second way is hard. Really hard for most of us. Why don't we consider failure as part of our success? The...

Society and its people complement each other. Apart from being only a mere social animal, all of us desire to develop our own unique identities. And to meet this desire, at first, we need to dare. Dare to break through the stereotypes and more.In the pursuit to create our identities, we all face unique hurdles. Some must fight against racial discrimination and others may fight against abuse and harassment. Some people are perhaps muddling through depression or sugarcoating imperfections. Many ar...

Most of the time when I think of mental health disorders (more specifically depression and anxiety), I tend to shut down and go very brief and crude. Especially in the past year or so, I’ve put it in a box and labelled it as something soul crushing, destructive, draining, energy, life and joy sucking, crippling and paralysing (I am aware of the fact that I am also describing Dementors. These are creatures JK Rowling used as a metaphor for depression and she did such a brilliant job). I’ve learnt...

My neighbourhood is blessed with lot of children; sometimes when I watch them playing I often remember when I was like them. I could remember vividly my days as a boy. Then, I always took the lead role in most games especially while playing with tires (rolling bike tires around the street). I have a specially modified one which other children crave to play with; the feeling then was like the one who owns a Bugatti Veyron in this present day. I always protect my tire at all costs and wouldn’t all...

All of us dream of a better world- better education, health, safety and security, progress of humanity, love and peace, economic welfare and so and so on. But, what is the key in bringing this about? How can we solve the problems our world is facing? How can we be able to tap into our creative intuitive inside of us? How can we unlock our potential locked deep inside of us?The key is education. But, I feel this key has gotten old and rotten. I think education should be redesigned so it can help...
