Pasi Vandhal Paththum Paranthu Pogum
The above phrase means when you are hungry, all of one’s key characteristics drift apart. Or in simple words, when one’s hungry, nothing else is of a priority than filling one’s stomach.
This phrase is derived from a song sung by Avaiyar in one of her works, Moodhurai.

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
– Swami Vivekananda
I feel very insignificant to share my views on this, but, somewhere one has to reflect their thoughts, right?
The simplest things in life is ‘To be’. As I type this, I am aware that, I have gotten this as a concept. But, in reality, this moment occurs only now and then.
Yet, I am extremely grateful that I could experience moments such as this, that too in an aware state of mind.
I hope that, this becomes a way of life, for me.
