All that glitters is not gold. It might be diamonds.

oMohana Bala Siva is one among so many girls in this world. Like so many other girls, she has her dreams and wishes; she hopes and loves and laughs like everyone does. But unlike anyone else, she is uniquely Mohana and irreplaceably so.
She hails from a small town in Tamil Nadu and claims the same place to be her home at heart. The town with its authenticities and culture, conventions and rules have challenged her, picked on her and bullied her. At the very same time, it has taken Mohana to heaven and back.



Her home being more of a rural area is rich in nature's blessings. She believes this to be the reason why she prefers an evening, lazing under a breezy neem tree rather than hitting the mall for the latest fashion trends. She gamely asks the city bred girl next to her, how she manages to live in a concrete pot of noise. Politely of course.

Cue The Magic!

One word. Wow. Until this point, gratitude seemed to be opening doors for me, breaking barriers for me, helping me glide through circumstances in the outside world. This practice made me realize that there is no 'outside' world, myself and the Universe. There is One thing and that all these meaningless battles and plans and so-called victories and successes were a sham.

There was never a 'Me' against 'the world' and I had never gained a new ammunition in the name of gratitude to pave my way through life.It was a bloody illusion and it took this practice to show me that.How does it do that???It instils a new belief. That is all it does. A belief that the Universe is always trying to communicate with me and trying to show me all the things there are to love and to be grateful fo…
