Word Play

Recently, a colleague quipped that my work and submissions are very well organised in general. I acknowledge that! I may not be suffering from OCD exactly but yes; I have this tendency to compartmentalize things. As a kid I was fascinated by this one drawer in my grandmother’s table in her dispensary which had neat…

The Bride

Her marriage was the reason she left the state of her birth and came into the big city with many dreams. She accepted her husband’s house as her own; his relatives, friends, neighbours were all hers too. She adopted not only the people but also the culture, language and all that would make her become…

Ctrl + Z

Way back in 1992 I was in Bombay to attend a distant relative’s wedding. I saw the captions ‘I ❤ WINDOWS’ and ‘WINDOWS IS MY GATEWAY TO THE WORLD’ there in his room. Not being able to ask anyone I assumed that these were some cheesy lines the fellow had pasted for his soon to…

I M POSSIBLE!

“But Ma! This isn’t how any of this works.” That’s Shubham to me. “Okay! So what can be done to make it work?” Me to him. “Ma, nothing can make it work.” “But there must be something that will work.” This is how our conversation usually goes whenever I want him to Photoshop something for…

The True Me?

Sometimes I wonder if I really know myself, especially when questions like these plague me.

Urja – Energy Infinite

Urja, is the very essence of womanhood. It embodies the unlimited energy that women possess. We often talk in terms of woman power but miss the unlimited energy that she possesses. No matter how tired a woman feels, she always has energy for her family, her friends, her people. She will walk that extra mile…

The reluctant warriors

Recently a student of mine requested me to give my inputs on ‘strength’. He felt that people conveniently juxtaposed the inability to take an action or see it through to results with their being weak. They simply hide behind the excuse that they are not strong enough. Incidentally, I had started writing this post a…
