Live by your choice

Long gone days! Will never come back. Look ahead so that you do not miss the one coming! So, cherish what has gone by, shed the hurt, learn the lessons.

In the Lap of Nature

One of the good things of residing near the capital city is that there are many getaways close by providing a drastic change in the sights and sounds, apt to calm the frayed nerves of a harried city dweller, burnt-out office goer. So off I am, 8:20 am of a sunny, wintery, Thursday morning, cruisingContinue reading “In the Lap of Nature”

Independence through the eyes of a child

The independence day, 75th year, reinvigorated the spirit of patriotism, joy and pride across the country.

This is followed by an hour of jogging and Pilates at the gym.Continue reading “Revolt by the Sandwich Generation”

A day in the life of a newspaper!

Last week the way my family reacted, meaning losing it all, when the internet went down for a few hours, made me lament on how utterly dependent on the web we are. Our life is controlled by this mesh from everything such as news, to quenching our sudden curiosities, studies, office, banks, entertainment, and everyContinue reading “A day in the life of a newspaper!”

Oh what a day!!

All of a sudden, there were shrieks of agony and screams of despair emanating from everywhere. Accusations and angry snarls followed soon. From every room of our house. It seemed that an all out war bugle has been sounded and all means of assault will follow soon. From one room there were roars of blasphemyContinue reading “Oh what a day!!”
