I am a writer and this is what I want

Writers are not just silent observers. We choose to become the voice for others but today I am writing for ‘us’.

Professionals, whether postmen, builders, doctors or engineers, are recognized for their work on a daily basis. They are respected for what they do but writers must make a breakthrough before they are even acknowledged as working members of society.

We sit, and we dream, but all these thoughts are just the start to a wonderful story, something that might touch your heart, make you smile, get you thinking or even change your future.

No one remembers who created the…


The change awaits

I am a lupus patient, termed clinically vulnerable. This past year has been full of feelings, fear, anger and isolation being at the top of the list. At times it felt like life was nothing more than covid count the death rate and the lockdowns.

It was a run between wishing for a lockdown when kids had to go to school in extreme pandemic conditions to hoping for some normalization when homeschooling crushed us.

On line grocery shopping was fine for the first couple of months but as time passed I wanted to go out and choose my own stuff…


Environmental concerns, government incentives and the ever-improving models make it a deal to consider

Although many of us think of electric vehicles as the modern alternative to our existing means of transportation yet the existence of this concept can be traced back to 1830s when a motorized carriage was built by Scotland’s Robert Anderson. This carriage was powered by non-rechargeable primary power cells.

By 1859 the batteries of electric vehicles could be recharged and by 1884 Thomas Parker helped deploy electric-powered trams and built prototype electric cars in England.

In the U.S., the first successful electric car made its debut around 1890 thanks to William Morrison, a chemist who lived in Des Moines, Iowa…


A single icy crystal that has achieved a sufficient size yet negligible on its own

Today is a beautiful snowy day and I stand glaring at the magnificent scene outside. Each little snowflake sets itself on the ground hardly visible at first but within minutes the whole surface becomes white and fluffy.

The single crystalized beauty by its self is too tiny simply negligible yet together they form the surface bright and gleamy enhancing every corner where they settle.

We writers are like these snowflakes, on our own we all have our distinct beauties like the patterns of each snowflake yet our visibility and existence depends solely on each other. …

9 Months ago, Medium was only another blogging platform. I just wrote a piece pressed publish and it was online available for the world to read. I found this very appealing, no website or blog formation cost, no waiting time. You just write it and share.

I was not a professional writer, but I loved to write and share my views. Initially, I wanted to see what my words were worth but as time passed, I developed some strong connections and a network of writer friends that kept me going, even when I didn’t feel like it.

The journey here…


Simple lives in comparison to the modern world

Recycling and upcycling have seemed to attract tremendous hype in the modern world but to be honest they were a vital part of our daily lives in developing countries even decades ago.

Later we started choosing ease over effort and ourself over everything else.

Here I will discuss some simple environmentally friendly practices which were very common as we grew up and will compare them with how things have changed over the years.

It scares me to think about the drastic changes taking effect in just over a couple of decades. …


Been there done that

I began my Medium journey last year April 2020. Within a few months, I had over 1K followers with Medium curations in almost 15 different genres.

I was dreaming big and moving fast, extremely happy with my self and here I stand today, just where I started finally reversing my Medium earnings to exactly where they were in the first month.

If I can do it so can you.

Dream big and dream all day. Get over-excited with each curation and think highly of yourself. …

In 2020 as the stock markets crashed during the pandemic. The leading market specialists emphasized that they would return with a bang, which led novice investors like me to jump in the unknown waters.

I am considered prudent and I believe in having full expertise before trying anything new. I studied numerous market analysts and tried to make sense of this game. I became familiar with general market terms to essentially understand the analysts.

I took my time to become familiar with terms like

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The Money Flow Index (MFI)

The Rate Of Change (ROC)

Finally, after…


Some good deeds last forever

Life is always full of challenges but kind efforts by some extraordinary humans make it worth living. The essence of this mystery lies in the fact that these people live like ordinary beings, with their own daily struggles yet they never make a show of their good deeds or the impact they had on someone’s life.

The Complexities of my Youth

I suffer from Anti Phospholipid Syndrome and Lupus, my immune system mistakenly attacks healthy parts of my body.
