We, as a family, are on threshold of something very important. At a very critical juncture. Am I being too dramatic 🤔 ? We are actually buying a new car. It is a big investment for us. A major money matter for us. Our dear decade old car was beginning to disappoint us at times.Continue reading “Decisions…”

Frustrations of parenting!
I am not a natural homemaker. 😒 I get all upset when I see these excellent influencers on Instagram or YouTube putting these fabulous videos, making it all look so simple. Feeding their children veggies. Doing fun activities and looking so glam and so chill about it. I know it is tons of hardwork, patienceContinue reading “Frustrations of parenting!”
The cycle of life.
Old age is cruel. Very hard and cold. Winters become synonymous with chill- dead soul shattering silence of the night. Summer stands for tiring endless light of the day. There is no respite. Years trickle by, and yet for the old time stands still. The most images or reels or posts I like on socialContinue reading “The cycle of life.”
Soaking in the Sun
Soaking in the bliss. The most wonderful aspect of winters is basking in the Sun, with a cup of coffee and peanuts by your side. Taking in the glowing warmth, a million other indescribable sounds and pleasing your eyes with mindless gazing. Sun is the most positive affirmation on this Earth. When we feed ourContinue reading “Soaking in the Sun”
Hathi🐘 ghoda🐴 palki Jai Kanhaiya Lal ki!! My earliest memories of Janmashtami are standing barefoot in enormous queue of devotees to pull the Jhoola ( swing) of the bal natkhat Kanha. The crowds would jostle and at times it would get either hot, humid or wet depending upon the humidity and downpour. The echoes andContinue reading “Happy Janmashtami”
Glory to thy Earth!
After days of bickering heat and sweltering humidity, comes the rapturous rain, announcing its arrival by thunderous clouds and filling my aching heart with ease and joy.

Management in marriage
Is there any exact equation for success in a marriage? Does it require micro management and investment? or is it like a free flowing river, sometimes flooding, at times drying out and changing its course at random. Does it have stillness and calmness of the lake or is it like a volcano 🌋waiting to eruptContinue reading “Management in marriage”
Losing shit when some one fails to commit to their word or actions is my biggest frustration. I still have not mastered the yogic art of forgiveness, ahimsa and tolerance for this punitive crime. I have little problems with people denying upfront but dilly dallying as a way of work or life is totally unacceptable.Continue reading “Frustrations…”

The only solution
One of my fondest memories of childhood is our annual visits to my pishi’s bari (home) in New Delhi. My pishi (bua, father’s sister) was a very steadfast Sai Baba devotee. There were numerous life like portraits of Baba at her home. She also had a very nice sculpture of him in the puja (worship)Continue reading “The only solution”

It was the best of times ; it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom; it was the age of foolishness. It was the epoch of belief; it was the epoch of incredulity. It was the season of light, it was the season of darkness. It was the spring of hope,Continue reading “3H formula for Positivity”

Love is in the air
Friends and foes, January is behind us. We have either forgotten our resolutions or either lived up to them. We have created fresh new memories in the new year of the new decade. We have all done our introspection, lived through deception and managed to go on with our daily grind. The first month ofContinue reading “Love is in the air”
Hey Nisha hi Nisha! Where are you today? I see you daily on my way. Sometimes smiling, sometimes laughing, Sometimes sad, sometimes frowning. I see you smiling warmly to the scorching Sun. Working fiercely with your every muscle outdone. Cleaning streets, cleaning utensils. Lifting things ten times your size. Sometimes in rain, sometimes in bitterContinue reading “Hey Nisha”
The Sun at my back, The breeze flowing through my hair. I lie on the grass, in the nature’s lap. Feels like my mother caressing my back. The butterflies are a sight to behold! And I see the squirrels spreading cheer. The air so fresh, the rays so warm. The grass so green, I feelContinue reading “My musings”
