#AtoZChallenge2019

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 love to share my experience. I am a pretty consistent but …

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 with its simplicity. Pulls out half a poem written in spring …

Virtually Real

As someone pointed out after reading yesterday’s post, we all look for a break from our urban lives but land up in retreats that happen to be equally crowded. Thankfully, I’d say, the hills still have some unexplored places but they ask you to be more venturesome and daring. If you are looking for valet …

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 even loud enough to honk on roads. Yes, there is immense …

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 is what happens when you ask a romantic to take a …

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 beauty with a capacity of two-hundred something litre, shining in pristine …

Questions Please!

“Tell Me Why?” Does that ring a bell? The only credible thing, after your parents, that you went back to for all the wonderful questions that ever plagued your mind. As children, too many doubts cloud our mind. And Parenting Bibles are so supportive of our inquisitiveness. Leaving the questions asked by a child unanswered …

Pink Pyjamas

This story dates back to the year 2015. Not very long ago, you see. I had a new neighbour from some part of another metro, who had just moved in. Now before I go on to introduce her, let me throw some light on “yours truly”. I am essentially laid back and easy. I hate …

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

No, there isn’t a mushy, saccharine story that I bring today. Life can’t be spiritual and all every day.  As a middle-aged woman, I do have to deal with some practical issues, and I’m just here to share the tale of my absent-mindedness. Once again, do not confuse me with being a scatterbrain. I’m not. …
