Everybody loves Coke Studio, which is why I very excited for T-Series's "Mixtape", because I am being very honest when I say the songs are PRETTY DAMN BEAUTIFUL. Music has a way to our hearts, to cross boundaries of language and age, to become a part of everyone's experience. These songs will do exactly that, but more. The beautiful harmonies will cling to your soul. Don't listen to me, listen to them.

There's something about beautifully woven words. Some people just have that magic in their souls, the talent to lay out the rawest of truths and spin them into poetry. Persian poet Hafez, or Khwāja Shams-ud-Dīn Muḥammad Ḥāfeẓ-e Shīrāzī (woah, right!) was one of those gifted people. He said things all of us wanted to hear, and to this day, we cherish them.
My mind is, um, blown.
You know those "good morning" messages on various family WhatsApp groups that blow up your phone every single day? Well, they are blowing up the freakin' Internet too. No, that's not me claiming so - it's The Wall Street Journal that has led me to this spectacular discovery. It turns out that our friendly neighbourhood "good morning" well-wishers are sending across so many cheery greetings every morning that they're managing to seize up phones for millions of people.
You've got to look after yourself first.
Growing up, selfishness was always a quality that was frowned upon. Every Disney princess was defined by her selflessness, by the sacrifices she made. And every romcom had people sacrificing their happiness for each other all the time. And most of us try growing up selfless.
One ray at a time.
We often crib about our lives - heartbreaks, failed career prospects, our bosses and a whole bunch of other things. But we completely forget to be grateful, forget how fortunate we are. There are people in the world, specially abled people who'd give anything to enjoy the many privileges we all take for granted. What is it, if not a gift, to possess a healthy body and mind?
Because sometimes heartbreak can be hilarious!
