I’m Shameless

I was recently visiting my family and they were joined by some of my relatives. The moment they saw me, the comments started rushing in. “Roshan, you have grown weak. Do you even eat these days? Do you still eat bread for breakfast?” I didn’t like whatever they said, but as a kid who grew…

Reasons Why You Should Smile

Today I was scrolling through my Instagram and I happened to notice the change in me. Apart from getting handsome every passing day (as others say), I noticed that I started smiling more. I have started to show the beautiful teeth that I have got and it just boggled my mind. I started to think…
