It's amusing how the smallest of things just pass by without any significance. Their true value is only understood when you're distant away from it. It's been a while living away from my parents but up until I saw a loved one lose a parent, I realised that I never valued them as much … Continue reading An Open Letter To My Parents
Sunday afternoon, sitting on my balcony as I see the winds making the coconut trees dance and my thoughts wander around; it strikes me as to how times have changed and how far we’ve come in regards to the functioning of the universe. It breaks my heart to see how we’ve used and abused every … Continue reading Go back to the time…
As a kid and those growing up years, I was extremely fascinated by the whole idea of living an independent life. No female in my family had ever lived one (Indian, Hindu family, what more to say) and hence forth the fascination. What did that really mean at that time? Getting a job, earning my own … Continue reading Living The Independent Life..
They say that the Home is where the Heart is and my heart for as long as I know has been in this small town of Sikkim. Whenever I am in the city or otherwise I can never stop gushing about this place. I can just go on and on about the beauty and the … Continue reading The Place Where I Belong: Sikkim
Are today's young people afraid of committing? This is the question that popped into my head as I was watching a not so old movie (Love Aaj Kal which translates to Love these days). The story basically goes about like this- a guy and a girl meet, fall in love, enter into a happy relationship. … Continue reading The Lost Art of Commitment
I open my eyes just to see you're gone, Away to the world beyond. A promise of never looking back, A promise of never coming back. Your love knew no boundaries, How is it, you did, what you did? All you've left me with is, Your hand full of blessing. I hold your memories deep in … Continue reading Lost and Gone…
I'm busy. How often do we all use this statement? I'm sure most of us use it all the time. Ask anyone today, “How’s it going?”, the answer is never “fine” anymore. Instead, the response is always some degree of frazzled. The scale ranges from “busy” to “crazy busy” to “insane.” Honestly, just stop for … Continue reading Busy: Are we?
It is funny and amusing as to how sometimes smallest of observations or thoughts bring you into terms with the harsh realities of life. Something similar happened to me as well over the weekend. I learnt two valuable life lessons (so to say) which otherwise I would have never ever really thought upon. The first thing … Continue reading Lessons I learnt!
Love is said to be the most profound emotion known to human beings and so everyone has their own definition for it. A couple of days back I was having this very conversation with one of my friend. We both tried and explained each other what our definition of love was and I somehow I just wasn't … Continue reading Simply Love!
When we think of the words "Family Reunion," what do we really understand? A house full of cousins, some recreation, lots and lots of gossips and great food (the only good part). That's how one would visualise it. Well, sorry to disappoint, but that's not how family reunions happens in Indian Families. For Indians, everything … Continue reading The Big Fat “INDIAN” Family Reunion
