A matryoshka doll (Russian: матрёшка; IPA: [mɐˈtrʲɵʂkə], matrëška), also known as a Russian nesting doll, or Russian doll,[1] is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another. The name “matryoshka” (матрёшка), literally “little matron”, is a diminutive form of Russian female first name “Matryona” (Матрёна) or “Matriosha”.[Source: Wikipedia]

My colleague was on a month-long job assignment in Russia and I requested him to buy me a matryoshka doll because I have always fancied one since childhood. I chose the blue set since it looks quite unique compared to the commonly found red ones. There are a total of five (5) dolls when you display all of them.

So what is the secret of the matryoshka dolls? When you come to think of it, the mind works in a similar fashion. Once you have unveiled another depth, there are more thoughts within, and then some more, hidden inside us. So no matter how you release from therapy, it may be a neverending story. So it can be very tricky to keep on drilling into this direction. It is a bottomless pit.
