8 Rules of Love !

What book are you reading right now?

I am currently reading a book of ‘8 Rules of Love’ by Jay Shetty. I became a fan of Jay Shetty after reading ‘Think like a monk’. Here’s the overview of the book ‘8 Rules of Love’.

The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Think Like a Monk offers a revelatory guide to every stage of romance, drawing on ancient wisdom and new science.

Nobody sits us down and teaches us how to love. So we’re often thrown into relationships with nothing but romance movies and pop culture to help us muddle through. Until now.

Instead of presenting love as an ethereal concept or a collection of cliches, Jay Shetty lays out specific, actionable steps to help you develop the skills to practice and nurture love better than ever before. He shares insights on how to win or lose together, how to define love, and why you don’t break in a break-up.

Inspired by Vedic wisdom and modern science, he tackles the entire relationship cycle, from first dates to moving in together to breaking up and starting over. And he shows us how to avoid falling for false promises and unfulfilling partners.

By living Jay Shetty’s eight rules, we can all love ourselves, our partner, and the world better than we ever thought possible.

Geography : My favourite subject in school !

world map illustration

What was your favorite subject in school?

Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments.

Geography was my most favorite subject in High school. During school whole subject was covering with information related to different countries in the world. Different cultures, tradition, peoples with information were covered in this topic.

During school days books were the only option where I would learn about the geography of the world.The subject was the combination of Geography and Economics where 32 marks questions consist of geography and rest other related to economics.

I was not much fond of economics as it was about social science that focuses on the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services, and analyzes the choices that individuals, businesses, governments, and nations make to allocate resources.

But now it all make sense now. Today’s government system and everything all based on economics. Elections, Politics is everywhere now.

But all I can say is that I am grateful that I got to learn about the interesting information about the world. Do check my other blogs on

Thank you.

A visit to Hatta dam, Dubai.

If you ever visit plan to visit some best places in Dubai , I’ll recommend you to visit Hatta. Hatta’s main economic factor is tourism and water. Historically the area was able to grow date palms; the fruits were used as a food source, while the tree was used for building material. It has a popular heritage village, including a collection of reconstructed traditional mountain dwellings and is popular for weekend getaways with both people camping in the winter months or staying at the Hatta Fort Hotel.

Hatta Kayak Selfie point.

I visited this place with my team of 15 colleagues and I had the best experience there. Our journey started by picking up my colleagues from different locations around 8.00am. Then we left for Hatta around 9:30 am from Dubai Investment Park 2. It takes around 1 hours and 40 minutes reach at the spot. We carried with us with breakfast mid way so that we don’t get hungry while exploring the beauty of the place.

When we reached there, I noticed tall mountains of rocks which made me thinks that its impossible to climbs. The mountains were perfectly in shape like a triangle ike how I used to draw in school. But, the view was beautiful. At the dam, we got to see the crystal green lake between the mountain range. The bridge was filled with tourists. The place was silent, cool and relaxing.

I never did Kayaking before. This time I decided to try Kayaking ! The Hatta Kayak is a unique tourist destination in Dubai and UAE. The vast lake formed by Hatta Dam and its surrounding mountains is becoming so popular among those who seeks relaxation in a natural place and looks for a new experience of practicing kayak sport in UAE. There were around 100 Kayaks and boats readily available. We 15 persons decided to get into single Kayak each.

The water was calm and the lake was peaceful. We wore life jackets for the safety incase the Kayak flips. You need to maintain correct sitting position and make sure not to tilt on one side. The movement of the row will guide you the course and movement of the Kayak. But it was fun, Once you get hands on it, you ll seamlessly cruise it. That was the best moment in my life.

Scenes near Hatta dam

After exploring the dam and the Kayaking. We sat on a carpet making a rectangle and they served us with the dish name Mandi. The Mandi is served with a big plate of rice mixed with gravy and two half chicken pieces. One fried with different spices and other boiled. A group Of four people ate in one big plate.

We then visited the Hatta Park which is 20 mins drive from the restaurant. Hatta Hill Park is an elevated oasis in Dubai’s exclave town of Hatta. Just a short drive from the region’s heritage village. The green space also includes running tracks, sports fields and a children’s playing field. We played football on the turf which was fenced and explored the view from top of the hill. By exploring these, places our day came to an end and we decided to head back to Jumeira Beach in Dubai.

About my experience, I would recommend you to visit this place one as you ll get to explore the place without tall skyscrapers and digital entertainment like in city. The best time to visit this place is between October – February. As the temperature is cool. While kayaking make sure you put your mobile phones in floated plastic bag so that if you fall inside the lake then you mobile can be safe from drowning. There is a very less chance that you ll get it back as the lake is almost 35 feet deep.

ICC Men’s World Cup 2023

After four years, ICC World cup is back in India. Ten teams have been qualified for the group stage in which, 4 teams will make it to semi finals. Followed by top two teams will fight for the top spot. This tournament is unpredictable as all the teams have been in great form since their last matches. We could see multiple disappointments and surprise in this upcoming tournament.

Captains of Mens Cricket teams.

Here is the list of my top 5 favorites who will be competing in the main tournament starting from October 5.

India is the most favorites to be the champions as they are the hosts for ICC World cup 2023. India has a very good record winnings in their home series. The team led by Virat Kohli is confident with their squad and will be looking forward to easily slide into the semi finals. India have been a world champions in 1983 and 2011.

You can check out my blog on India vs Pakistan

Pakistan has emerged as a top ranked team in One day international matches in last few months. Not only their batting line up is strong, but also he likes of Shaheen Afridi and Haris rauf has cemented the team to become the champions. Pakistan team have finally arrived Hyderabad,India. They will be playing in India after 7 years.

Securing place at no. 3 Australia will face their first match against India on October 8, Sunday. Like India, Australia to have quality players in all sections of their team, their middle order has proved to be the best when chasing the target. During warm up match against Netherlands,A half-century for Steve Smith and a hat-trick to Mitchell Starc were the bright spots for the five-time champions in a game that was reduced to 23-overs-a-side due to a delayed start. It will be a good contest to watch Australia play their first game against India.

World cup 2019 champs England will be confident to begin their World cup journey and eyeing to continue the winning streak. The defending champions England cricket team arrived in India on Thursday ahead of the first warmup match against India on Saturday. England were the only side to beat India in the league stage of the 2019 ODI World Cup, after which India jettisoned their two-wrist spinner strategy.

New Zealand’s performance was nothing short of spectacular. They chased the massive target of 346 in 43.5 overs with 5 wicket left. Even though Shaheen Shah Afridi didn’t bowl, they made light work of a daunting 345-run chase. New zealand faced an early setback when opening batsman Conway was dismissed for a golden duck. Ravindra’s innings gave momentum to their batting line up but he felt short of a well-deserved century. Williamson capitalized on the opportunity for valuable batting practice and retired after reaching his half-century.

The only concerned in this tournament is the rain. Most of the warm up matches were abandoned. This will be frustrating to see the teams getting knocked out due to it. But all we can do is stay positive and expect that this tournament will be best one ever.

Giving time to God !

What’s your #1 priority tomorrow?

As tomorrow is Sunday, I have decided to start my day by reading a bible quote. I have been through many struggles few years back. Struggling to get a job, financial issues, losing job opportunities and many more. But those struggles didn’t last long. Because I always believed in god, with consistent efforts and not giving up I came out from the challenged one by one, all you need is hard work and faith in god. Our prayers are always heard.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43.2

In the verse the Lord says: “Do not fear, I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine” God says not to fear! This should give you great comfort. Not only God is promising that all things are under perfect control, He has called you redeemed justified and victorious. “Whatever rough waters you find yourself wading in today, you will not be swept away.” The flames of temptation and tribulation cannot consume you. No hurdle, no challenge, no obstacle, is too powerful for you because you are already His. So fear not, Child of God. He is with you. Trust what he has promised you.

When I was struggling to get a job in my home country, I took a risk of moving to middle east on a visit visa to look for an opportunity. As the visa had a duration of 90 days. All I had to do try my best to apply on all Job search platforms. I used to keep applying 10-15 applications and consistently updating my CV.

During this period apart from genuine jobs, I came across lots of scams where they hire you till the duration of your visit visa and terminating you in the end. But you get the red flags by researching about these fraud job listings. I didn’t got a single response in 2 months of continuous job search. But I didn’t lose hope. I was consistent on searching for a job.

Finally after 2 months, I got an opportunity for an interview and I got selected in reputed company in Dubai. I learnt that consistent efforts and hard work always pays off. Lets not forget that I was praying everyday.

Today it’s been a year I am working, it’s been difficult to maintain the consistency in giving time to god. But, I always thank him for removing me from the struggles. We should remember him not only during bad times but also during good. Therefore I have decided to start everyday bible reading.

Holding a grudge on someone?

heart shaped red neon signage
Daily writing prompt
Are you holding a grudge? About?

Holding a grudge will eventually consume you by weakening your body mentally. Have you ever tried shouting and feeling as if your heart is pumping fast and you are feeling trouble breathing?I have experienced it. As per cambridge dictionary, Grudge is a strong feeling of anger and dislike for a person who you feel has treated you badly, especially one that lasts for a long time.

Grudges are usually directed toward people, but a person can hold a grudge against a group or an entity like a company or organization. The word grudge is often followed by the word against and whom or what the grudge is directed toward. For example,

  1. Boss doubting you on your capabilities while you are giving your best at job.
  2. A boy has a grudge on his ex for cheating on him with another person.
  3. A student has a grudge on his teacher for punishing him in front of whole class.
  4. Family dispute.

Why is it so easy to hold a grudge?

Being hurt by someone, particularly someone you love and trust, can cause anger, sadness and confusion. If you dwell on hurtful events or situations, grudges filled with resentment and hostility can take root. If you allow negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by bitterness or a sense of injustice.

Some people are naturally more forgiving than others. But even if you tend to hold a grudge, almost anyone can learn to be more forgiving.

What are the effects of holding a grudge?

If you struggle with finding forgiveness, you might:

  • Bring anger and bitterness into new relationships and experiences.
  • Become so wrapped up in the wrong that you can’t enjoy the present.
  • Become depressed, irritable or anxious.
  • Feel at odds with your spiritual beliefs.
  • Lose valuable and enriching connections with others.

My answer to today’s prompt is I don’t have grudge on anyone. Whenever someone treats me bad, I do get hurt, but that happens very rarely. I am a guy to whom everyone likes to be friends with me. If I am good to others then no one will try to hurt your. I believe that our life is designed to put us through challenges and to test us on how we respond and ultimately deciding our fate.

For me its just a moment where someone will eventually target you out of nowhere just to check your reaction, but the best reply is to take it jokingly and being silent. If you react, then they’ll get to know your weak point.

I do read books , motivational videos, gym to relieve my stress and I think this makes me more calm and relaxed throughout the day. And last but not least, ‘Time is the best healer’

Checking airline tickets !

What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it?

As an expat living abroad, we all know how excited we are for our vacation to spend time with our loved ones in our country. Even if you are too busy with your work life in a fast paced city (Like Dubai), there comes a moment when the sadness gets you and make you feel low. But, as you sense a vacation approaching soon, you ll never skip a day without checking the airline tickets. Same goes to me (or maybe I am unique).

I have been too much addicted this days. As soon as I open chrome, I get a pop up about ticket prices for the current day. First thing then I check whether the fares are cheaper or not, if the fares are cheaper then more happiness + excitement. Maybe I ll get that satisfaction once I book the tickets. And once I book the tickets, then my excitement will reaching next level daily as day approaches.
