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.

Before publishing this blog, I thought to translate this…

Of Sex and Obligations: I see you Woman! #womanforwoman

A WhatsApp group ‘Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy’ with a message, ‘Mrs. X’s daughter-in-law’s marriage is in trouble’. Mrs. Y’s comments ‘SEX is the only…

An Ode to Adolescence!

The song ‘Que Sera Sera’ had a great impact on my growing years. Sitting by my window, glancing at the moon, I would wonder about my future! And many a times I would doze off humming ‘Que Sera Sera, whatever will be, will be, the future’s not ours to see…Que Sera Sera’! One fine day,…

Thank You Ex: Happy Valentine’s Day!

​How I wish, I get a chance to meet the wonderful EX of my GUY and say -Thanks! Before the troll police plans to slam me or I receive a grin from you, I would tell you why and how this noble thought cropped in! DISCLAIMER: This piece has no intention to spoil the day…

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…
