Early to rise. ..
 Childhood. What is it that I remember most about my childhood? a friend asked me the other day. Well, now, let's see.....dolls, friends, hop-scotch, frolicking in the muddy puddles, trying to catch little frog babies...Ugh! Did I actually do that? Yucks! W...

Far away from the maddening crowd.
Picture courtesy: Stocksnap.io  It's been almost a fortnight since life has been a tad bit peaceful. It may sound as if I rue the fact that life has been peaceful because of the "tad bit" part, but I am just being superstitious. You see, I fear, that if I e...

I resolve to keep going!
  The new year has begun. And, so has our struggle to stick to the resolutions we made at the end of last year. We awake each day with renewed vigour; a zest to see ourselves taking baby steps in the directions we set for ourselves. We have vowed, after all...

Soul sisters.
In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned how we women need to gather our army of women we can trust our life with. Women, whose shoulder we can lean on when life seems too heavy a burden; who will read our mind like no one ever will, and who will use just th...

Love.
          LOVE.          A word that evokes myriads of feelings in our heart; an emotion that "makes the world go round", and a formula that gives us the courage to circumnavigate the widest of oceans for the object of our affection!        Ah, how much mor...

To cook, or not to cook? Not to cook!
         Memories can be mystifying. You are busy doing your chores, sorting out stuff and suddenly,  out of nowhere, an old memory pops out like a Jack-in-the-box. It startles you with its suddenness and leaves you wondering, " Hey, where did that come fro...

What the stars foretell.
Image: Stocksnap.io  I awoke with a jolt this morning, at 8:15 am (that damn cough syrup, I tell you!) and realised I hadn't gotten back to my usual blogging schedule! What had I been doing all these days ? As I brushed my teeth, and drew up my to-do list f...

The fault in our stars. Wordy Wednesday.
 It's always our fault...  ...from the time we arrive into this world, to the time we take our first steps, testing the waters, tasting the air of freedom. ...from the moment our eyes dare to dream a thousand colourful dreams to the time we aspire to follow...

The Pakistani Bride - Book Review.
    I had been on quite a long reading hiatus, which, fortunately, ended last week. I bought not one, but three books of varied genres to begin afresh. I wrote about Love stories , an anthology edited by Ruskin Bond , and,   I let you go ', by Clare Mackint...

Behind closed doors.
  I have been on a reading spree, of late; just finished reading my second book from among the trio I bought last Sunday -  ' I let you go ', by Clare Mackintosh. A psychological thriller, it was the kind of unputdownable books I prefer to read. I finished ...

How 'bout a coffee break?
         Hello, friends! How have you all been? I hope it was a good week; I hope life treated you well. I have been fine, too;  going with the flow. But, that's what we are supposed to do, that's all  we are supposed to do - go with the flow,  isn't it?   ...

How 'bout a coffee-break?
           It's the end of the week and here I am,  my coffee  mug in hand, all set to have our weekly tete-a-tete!          So, how was your week? I hope it was  peaceful and pleasant, in spite of all the chaos that is going on out there in the world. My w...
