Reflection Post

To begin with, I think I could be handed over “The Late Blogger” Award by Blogchatter. I was one of the last few bloggers to jump into the A to Z Challenge 2019 and I think I am again late for this Reflection Post.  Nonetheless, I would… Continue Reading “Reflection Post”

Z-ed(Z) or Zee(Z)

I met a friend Who carried in his hand A bunch of lilies galore, ‘Ah! Those Flaars (flowers),’ I cried He smirked and smiled. ‘Flaars are gone,’ he said ‘It’s Flah-wer you see, Times are changing You need a new dictionary!!!’   I brushed… Continue Reading “Z-ed(Z) or Zee(Z)”

Yesterday

Like an old habit that dies hard Yesterday hangs on. Standing in the doorway It tugs at my heartstrings. Spins a pale green yarn to keep me snug when winter sets in. Dissolves like saccharin in a cup of sugarless tea, and tempts me… Continue Reading “Yesterday”

X is Unknown

So are Y and Z, you would say. But no, it is X and only X that is quintessentially unknown. A history of X can easily verify my claim but I am not delving into it right now. The status of X (unknown) came… Continue Reading “X is Unknown”

Walk a While, Just Another Mile

I refused to plug my ears or play a vintage number. It was going to be my inaugural walk on an unfamiliar road. The decision had been taken off the cuff. There were no Google Maps to guide me. Just a stark, lonely road… Continue Reading “Walk a While, Just Another Mile”

Thank You! (Shukraan- A Romantic’s Tour of Egypt II)

Ah! Here I am. ‘Shukraan’ for visiting the blog. ‘Shukraan’ means ‘Thank you’ in Arabic. The word is such an integral part of Egyptian culture that you find people using it so frequently. People of Egypt are extremely friendly and soft spoken. They aren’t… Continue Reading “Thank You! (Shukraan- A Romantic’s Tour of Egypt II)”

Shukraan!A Romantic’s Tour of Egypt (I)

This post wasn’t planned for the AtoZ Challenge but as they say somethings find their own way… I left quite a few people confounded when I picked up Egypt as my preferred place of travel. I had decided to forego South Africa. Now this… Continue Reading “Shukraan!A Romantic’s Tour of Egypt (I)”

The Refrigerator’s Tale

We all have that one special thing at home which our parents are fiercely protective of. These are usually very old, almost antique and that is probably their USP. I was seven when my grandfather gifted a refrigerator to my parents. The old Godrej… Continue Reading “The Refrigerator’s Tale”
