The ‘About Me’ Dilemma

Greeting the big blog world, here I begin my blogging journey with elan! To write or not and if at all write, then what to write? I am not a social butterfly, neither an online influencer, not an established writer and have absolutely no Bollywood connections here! Who am I then? This question got me…

Harboring an economy of Deeds: A quarantined thought!

Sitting in self-isolation, looking at the faded sky and the abandoned streets, the quarantined mind wanders, whether we deserve this or even worse? Lives lost, lives suffering and lives in threat and what not. Though we are locked up in our gigs, the concept of ‘Social Distancing’ has revived the forgotten religion called ‘ Humanity…

Cheers to LIVING!

Withered by the winds, yet withstanding the weather, Standing in the dark, yet glorifying the path, The lone survivor cheers its LIVING! Tested by the times, yet striving to flourish, Enduring the silence, yet rooting for the spring, The lone survivor cheers its LIVING!

#MindlessMusings-1

They often judge you by your answer about that glass, whether it’s half full or half empty. If you say ‘half full’, you are awarded a badge of an ‘optimist!If you say ‘half empty’, you are labeled with a perception of ‘pessimist’! But what if, its ‘dark’ night and you are asked the same question?…

Surviving Sciatica, the Shakira way!

Like life, Sciatica happens too. And, when Sciatica happens, the happening life stops! While being high on life and grooving on Shakira’s, ‘Hips don’t lie’, it took one sexy move to turn my whole world upside down. All I could gather from that wonderful evening was shooting pain and a slo-mo version of Shakira singing,…

Paradise of a fool!

Scared of the wise and the nice, the fool embarks on a journey to seek paradise. Far from the land of well versed, will there be a heaven of her own?

“Mom, should I follow your footprints?”

What would be your response when your child questions, whether she/he should follow your footprints? I was blank. I could see, the reel of my life started rolling in full HD!

Gazing at the Dawn!

The voice of a rusted soul as she walks through the dawn, stirring the riddles of her life to seek the dusk!

Settled or Settler: Immigration Woes!

Be it deciding the stream for higher studies or surviving the last day of graduation, waiting for the job response or being on the verge of getting hitched, the pressure of procreating thereafter or choosing the best nursery school for the life hence created, the question is, are we ever settled in life? Lately, I…

What is ‘PEACE’?: Mini-Me defines!

Of all the blogs I have written so far, this piece about ‘PEACE’ took me a lot of time ( a lifetime probably, had I wished to achieve it first and then write)!  Every day after coming from school, she hugs me. But that evening, the way she hugged me was a bit different. There…

ME, MINI-ME, AND ME-BOOK: #MothersDay

Perplexed and panting I woke up this morning to find my 5-yr-old cuddled up next to me. ‘Oh, dear Lord!!! Thankfully, she’s still a mini-Me!’, I told myself. Such was the DREAM; the conversation that led to a realization. 12 hours before the DREAM: ME: Why Maa? Hasn’t the doctor asked you to reduce your screen…
