  1. You have managed to pack so much in these 55 words, Shailaja. Very thoughtfully done. You have left me very curious about who, what, why, how of this piece 🙂

  2. Easier said than done. But yes it sure is liberating when one manages to break the shackles of mind.
    Good one Shailaja 🙂

So, what did you think?
