It’s been a couple of days since I got back from a short trip to Alleppey. What’s not to enjoy the serene atmosphere, the mighty waters and nature, and a quietness that calms the soul. It was a good break from the hectic schedule, and it was completely different from our previous vacation to Ladakh. As much as a landscape heaven it is, Ladakh was … Continue reading A break to bounce back!
I’m back home after an amazing trip to Leh-Ladakh. It was a wonderful holiday and I got to tick an item off my bucket list. We had initially planned to go to Leh during May and we were eagerly looking forward to the trip. However for some personal reasons we had to cancel the trip. We were extremely disappointed. We wanted to go on this … Continue reading All the way to Leh!
You may probably wonder what is so special about watching a movie on a Saturday, or a Rajini movie on a weekend for that matter. Given the number of reruns on television for Rajini movies, it wouldn’t be surprising if someone has watched a Rajini movie for more than a 100 times. What made my weekend special was the fact that I was going to … Continue reading A Movie to Remember!
There are so many things which I would like to tell you, and I’m sure you will listen because I have something that you don’t – experience. Define your life First of all, stop listening to those who are trying to stress you out by constantly asking what you want to do in life and where you see yourselves a few years from now. While … Continue reading A note to my 18-year-old self
Warning: This is my mandatory yearly round up post. 2016 was a great year for me. Touchwood. Of course there were crappy days too, but some of the days stood out and overshadowed the other days, so much so that I’d gladly re-live 2016 just for the highlights. Like any other year, this year too flew by so quickly that I felt the ending was … Continue reading The Year that Was.
I’m an emotional personal. I don’t cry often, but the tears well up when I’m happy and when I’m angry. Somehow when I’m sad or hurt or upset, I don’t cry easily. I’ve always wondered why it happens that way for me. Of course, when it goes beyond a threshold I do cry, but the tears won’t come easily then. I think the heart initially … Continue reading Of Reunions and Overpowering Emotions!
My sister and I are always at the extreme ends of a spectrum. Not that it troubled my mom, in fact she used to be happy that our preferences were so different, so it was one less thing for us to fight about. Apart from the fact that we do not like the same people, there is nothing much in common between us. So it’s … Continue reading Singing A Different Tune
There is something magical about seeing something written in print. There is always a good feeling about writing —be it your new moleskin, a new pen or if you are a blessed soul, a wonderful handwriting. That’s perhaps the reason people value hand-written notes and letters more than they value emails. Now that hand-written anything has almost become a thing of the past, people have … Continue reading What’s in your list?
I was pretty sure June 2016 would be the most memorable month of my life. Not only because I was getting married, but also because my dear ones were all coming for the wedding and I had planned for a holiday. I was really looking forward to all the rituals because that meant I would get to spend more time with everyone. At the back … Continue reading Of the days gone by!
It’s been almost a decade since my 12th exams. But every year when I read about the exam dates or about the results being declared, I’m gripped by a sense of fear. I would then have to wait for my mind to register the fact that I’ve successfully (I’d like to say so), completed my 12th and I’m far away from schools and exams. The … Continue reading Tryst with Destiny!
