The more we deny the possibility of death, the more it will scare us. Think about death as a certainty, and start seizing every moment as our last.

— —

Every moment should not be approached with a motive of gaining something out of it. When we enjoy something, we should just stop and relish that moment.

When you see a beautiful building you admire its creator, but when you see a ruined building do you admire its destroyer? Legacy comes from what you create, not from what you destroy.

— —

The day we start thinking that we are perfect and cannot do anything wrong is the day we move away from reality to delusion.

from “Lair of the Monster” by Shon Mehta

We don’t hate criminals, we only hate failed criminals. In fact, we secretly admire criminals who are rich and successful.

When someone is drowning, its good to try and help them save their life, but if the drowning person is pulling you down as well, it is time to let them go.

Your worth does not depend on how good you are at your work. It depends on how important your work is to others, and how irreplacable you are in doing that work.

— -

Failure rarely happens in an instant. It usually happens slowly, bit by bit. It is important to acknowledge and admit failure before things go out of hand, so that one can make amends to contain the damage.

War is not a fairy tale where someone is good, someone is bad, someone is hero, or someone is villain. In a war, everyone is working to serve their own interest.

War is a smell — a smell of filth, a smell of sweat, a smell of flesh, a smell of blood, a smell of death; war is a smell that never goes away. — Shon Mehta, Lair Of The Monster

When I started writing “Lair of the Monster” almost two and a half years back, I had not imagined that it will become so relevant in today’s scenario.

What is “Lair of the Monster” about? It is about quest of power. It is about grit in face of adversities. It is a story about trying to live our life in the best possible way we can.
