Welcome to IshKishMish.com! :)

Hi all, This awesome day is finally here!! I am now the owner of my very own website, ishkishmish.com!! :DDD I have been wanting to acquire ishkishmish.com for a long time but I had been delaying it as much as possible because I knew it would involve a lot of work. Finally, this weekend I took the time to buy my domain and hosting space and started the migration. Even though I am nowhere near done everything I want to do on my new site, I have at least recreated the basic structure I had on wordpress.com. I cannot begin to imagine…

Dried lips

Most of the times, the moments are forgotten. The life is lived. The heart is terrified. Dried lips. Cold is here. Winds are chilly. Pathways are blocked. Dried lips. Plants are dying.

Life’s on track. Dried lips.

As I stepped out of the house, the terrorizing preview of what’s…

When I was a child, someone (I don’t remember who!) told me that if I sit in a dark room, close my eyes and work hard enough to concentrate in the area in the between my 2 eyes, and repeat Mool Mantra* over and over again, I will discover a light emerging from within.

Over the last couple of years, I have wondered (perhaps, unknowingly) quite a lot…

Pick up a fallen leaf

Fall felt like a semester of fallen leaves- although scattered, but still organized in the cycle of nature. I picked up a few leaves over and over again, watched them dry out and lose their colours, gave them away as gifts, decorated my table with a few, danced around with some, found some crushed in my own backpack, but still…I found that.. There are advantages of picking up a fallen leaf. In a way, it gave me direction; hope. Of where I am supposed to be going. What I must keep on doing regardless of what happens in life. What I…
