#Hiyerquotes as he says !

Harish Iyer came into limelight after he was seen in Aamir Khan’s highly acclaimed social talk show “Satyamev Jayate” (Season 1) way back in 2012, where he spoke in length, though gut-wrenchingly, about his ordeal as child sex abuse survivor. He is an equal rights social activist, writes for many online publications advocating for women, child & animal rights.


Just google his name and you get all the information about him you want to know. He’s got his twitter account verified with a blue tick and is followed by the former President of United States of America Barack Obama, indeed a big feat. He is considered the most empathetic public figure yet what makes him special is his down-to-earth & compassionate approach. He communicates with a lot of survivors on regular basis who are either facing abuse or have been through these difficult phase but unable to move past it. Harish is not a licensed therapist but he does help them as much as he can with his patience, persistence and love.

I am writing this blog today to present his quotes, famous as #Hiyerquotes in his FB account. I’ve no idea how Harish manages to write such pearls of wisdom, but when he write, it makes absolute sense and many of us resonate beautifully with it. Below are some his quotes I’ve compiled from tracing his #hiyerquotes all these years because it’s insightful, funny yet relevant that deserves to be read by each and every one of us.

HiyerQuote Poem

“Every day in life,
every moment in time,
every little experience that gives comfort.
pushes you to.
become what you are.
become truer than true.

That’s life.
that’s how it is.
sometimes we take a moment to become who we are.
sometimes, it takes an eternity to discover ourselves.

Whatever you are,
however you are,
whenever you are,
I am happy than the happiest
to see you become you.
Truer than true.

Not an impression.
not just an expression.
not any emancipation.
not borne out of fallacies in contraception.
not a mistake.
not a fleeting thought.
not a body type. ,
not intervention
not interruption.
not the path circumvented.
you are on the sane path, not the way of the demented.
not anything
not nothing.
every day you are becoming you.
truer than truly true.

Whatever you are,
wherever you are
however you are.
you are you.
truer than true.
that’s the only thing that’s true.
no one else.
can tell you yes, or tell you not.
who you are. who are you.
who better than you
to unearth the real you.

Whatever you are.
wherever you are
however you are.
you are you,
truer than true.”


HiyerQuote Poem  #EmpathTalk

The pain we face.
The insults we take.

The tears we cry.
The words that die.

The bodies we live.
The hearts we give.

The fear that lurks.
The scary new turfs.

The clarion call.
The mighty fall.
The walking tall.

Beyond the beyond we look.
But this is the truth.

There will be joy
There will be joy
There will be joy


“Need to dream new dreams because old ones have become real.”

“Love when you feel like loving. And love uninhibited.”
