After all these years of existence, what I have realized is that being clueless in life is the point where you see a lot of options opening up for you. You just have to believe in yourself to make everything work. This “profound thought” is derived out of the extreme phases of 'cluelessness' that I encountered at various points of life and ultimately ending up doing what I Love – Writing.. I also love watching movies and reading books. Biking is a passion. Silly things in life makes me angry and even sillier things make me emotional. Well what’s life if not for the great number of small things and small number of great things, right?
