Divorce is better than…

I left the title open-ended because getting divorce is a lot better than many things. Oh, I am not drunk and writing this in my complete senses! Divorce is better than:

  • Staying in an abusive relationship
  • Continuing with a partner who doesn’t love/respect you
  • Putting efforts into a relationship that doesn’t seem right
  • Carrying the baggage of a relationship only because of society’s pressure

The recent news of some of my most favorite couples separating was saddening. Farhan-Adhuna, Hrithik-Sussane, Karan-Jennifer, Ranbir-Deepika, and a few others personally known to me, broke their relationships to lead their lives separately.


Of course, the initial reactions were a mix of shock, anger, and grief. It was difficult to fathom how anyone can separate, after spending a decade or two together!  But, the deeper you delve, the clearer the situation becomes! A simple RCA will make it crystal clear why divorce is not as bad as it appears.

It’s not the end; It’s the beginning
It’s not a taboo; It’s something to talk about
It’s not the death of a relation; it’s the birth of two free souls!

By adopting a positive outlook in life, negative things like divorce will start showing signs of growth and happiness.

If you or anyone known to you has been in an abusive relationship, it’s time to break the shackles and breathe free.

Let’s Have a Quickie! (Part 1)

PS: Sorry, if the found the title misleading. 😀

The other day I was killing time at Quora and found this interesting thread, where a fellow member asked people to write short stories starting with – “The girl is a doctor and the guy is an engineer.”


I weaved a story, which is here below:

The girl is a doctor and the guy is an engineer. Both the families took pride in their children’s achievements as the matchmaker introduced them. Soon, the date was fixed and the girl and the guy were married in a typical ‘big fat Indian wedding’ style. Monotony was about to take a toll on their lives once again, after the celebrations were over, when they revealed their dreams of becoming a writer and music composer. That was the moment when they realized, marriages are made in heaven. And as they say, the rest is history! 🙂

The journey of Himayu

The tale of Himayu started two and a half years ago when I joined one of the country’s biggest ecommerce firms. I was happy and couldn’t thank God enough for helping me get a job there. But, little did I know then, that God has better things in store for me. Yes, I met my soul mate here and today we are happily enjoying our courtship period. Now, when I look back, it seems like it was a plan set up by God to bring us two together. Thank you, God for blessing me with such an amazing life partner.

Like any other relation, ours too was full of ups and downs. Fights, breakups, patch-ups, gifts, dinner dates, and romantic getaways – we have seen a lot in such a short span of time. We saw even more drama when we broke the news of our relationship to our parents. In India, it’s not about the girl and the boy when it comes to marriage; it’s all about the families. When all the family drama was happening, the thought of starting Himayu struck me! Yes, I wanted to express my feelings to the world without being judged! I wanted to share my experiences so that people like us know they are not alone! I wanted to share a tip or two that I learnt during this course so that it could help someone residing in some corner of the world!

I have started Himayu without giving much of a thought. Let’s see how ours and Himayu’s journey turn out to be. If by any chance, you happened to stumble upon this blog, please don’t forget to say Hi. Let’s spread love together!
