Piece on Peace…published!

In 2008, I was the class teacher of 2A, don’t remember whether I used to teach English, Math or EVS but that doesn’t matter. It was the day of Parent Teacher Meeting. As is my habit, I was a quarter of an hour early in the class. Even as I was settling a lady asked…

A Slice of My Past!

I got my house redone and painted in the month of March and most of the redundant things have been gotten rid of. But then, there are things which have nothing more than sentimental value and we tend to keep them for the simple reason that we cannot think of parting with them or throwing…

Peace, please!

One of Abhay’s cousins is an artist. She not only splashes colours around but also keeps spreading thoughts. To her a thought is a thought and art is art irrespective of the medium. Recently she started a kind of campaign on Instagram under the title ‘healingwiththedove’, a peace initiative. She shared a template bearing the…

Windows opened the doors for me!

Windows and I go back a long time, and I have been using it since my marriage in 1999. I started with Windows 97. I would go with my father in law and both of us would learn it together as Abhay had earned some training vouchers. Then we upgraded to Windows2000, then to Windows…

And there’s nothing to write again.

I am truly in awe of the people who can write regularly or challenge themselves to write every day and succeed. It takes a lot of creativity, imagination and dedication to come up with a write-up worth sharing on a regular basis. My last post on the blog was almost a fortnight ago and that…

The B(e)/Witching Hour!

Off late I have noticed that I invariably wake up between three and four. I’m fresh and don’t go back to sleep for the next two hours at least. And then it’s time to get up and on with the day. So, I who has associated herself, for the longest time, with the night jasmines…

Let happiness course through the veins!

Recently someone said to me, ” Ma’am! I always look forward to talking to you because you make it look like all’s well with the world and there’s so much to look forward to.” This conversation happened sometime last week when I was going through a rough patch. Now how do you tell a 20…

The Third Goat!

Recently I read a story on WhatsApp which gives the message of enjoying life with what we have. The story goes something like this,Once two school going friends rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers 1, 2 and 4 on their sides. They then let the goats loose inside their school…

The Many Colours Of Love

As I woke up this Sunday, the calendar on my smartphone reminded of the beginning of the week-long celebration of ‘love’. The Valentine’s Day is just round the corner and a post on love becomes mandatory, especially because I am someone who is totally sold out on ‘love’. I just love the idea of being…

The Karmic Destiny

I have just finished reading Paul Brunton’s, ‘A Search In Sacred India’. The book traces his first visit to India in quest of a spiritual teacher whom he does find ultimately. It is a very unbiased narrative and questions spirituality as well as superstition. I liked it, but in the end he says that everything…
