Finding time

There is always time. " I have no time" is an excuse we make when we don't want to do something. We always got the time we need. I did not feel the urge to write, the past few months. Or to be honest, I felt the urge but could not be bothered to actually... Continue Reading →

Hello there!

Yay! I have found my way back to the blog. I am not a fan of the all-too-often used word "hiatus" and therefore shall refrain from using it to explain my absence here. I have no fancy excuses to cover my a%s* (the usual - sickness, horrendous rotation schedule, family, travel, weddings...); but things got... Continue Reading →

Troubles. And a mid- air chat.

The trouble with trouble is that when you are in the middle of it, it seems insurmountable. Life ahead seems inconceivable. You use terms and phrases like never, ever, why... They become a mantra. You fail to appreciate all the things you have going for you. All the things in your life that make it... Continue Reading →

Chasing the sun!

At the crack of dawn, The Mister and I sneaked out of bed. Like an elite, enemy¬†reconnaissance and rescue team, we made no sound and went about the motions in nigh darkness with trained precision. The Little One was to be left behind, and we were to leave without her knowledge. The poor thing would... Continue Reading →

I never missed the city lights!

My parent's hail from this beautiful town, dotted with coconut palms and stuffed with wild shrubs and trees.Lined by the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats, it's picturesque and like my friends say almost "resort- like". True. But what I love about my hometown is the amalgamated seamless co-existence of the old and new. Of... Continue Reading →
