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”

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”

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”

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… Continue Reading “Virtually Real”

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”

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… Continue Reading “Questions Please!”

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… Continue Reading “Pink Pyjamas”

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… Continue Reading “Out of Sight, Out of Mind”
