I go for walks every day. Long solo walks in the evening when the sky is mellow, preparing for nightfall, children prancing about in the park; their jubilant screams when the swings go up in the air charge up the atmosphere around me. I look forward to this time of the day. This activity has… Continue reading Evening Musings: A Personal Blog
They all menstruated on the same day of the month and their monthly cycles ran in sync with the lunar cycle. On a full-moon night, these women performed elaborate cleansing and renewal rituals.
As soon as they spot her vehicle on the street, these furry babies wiggle their butt and wag their tail in excitement.
Something amazing happened to me a few days ago. I was at a cosmetics store browsing through lipsticks when a shy elderly lady, accompanied by her husband, entered and asked the twenty-something sales attendant to show her lippies in ‘muted’ shades. After disinterestedly toying with the ‘subdued’ colours for a few minutes, she gingerly picked… Continue reading Lipstick Diaries-A Personal Blog

Girl, don’t let that sensitive soul in you die. Unshackle that beautiful heart of yours and let those tears flow.

Without the warm sensitive souls like you, we would be left with a cold dispassionate world, inhabited by emotionless, impassive creatures who bottle up every feeling until they burst… Continue reading An appeal to the girl who feels a little too much
It has been at the back of my mind for many years, but never could I commit myself fully to the idea of writing as I was too unsure about my capabilities as a writer. I always thought if I ever write who is going to read it? Or even if someone reads it, will he/she like it ? Hence I kept postponing the idea till the time came when I decided enough is enough. Just because I am scared of putting my thoughts out in the open and worry about people’s reaction to it, doesn’t mean that should deter me from following what my heart desires.
A stage comes in life when you want to say so many things and you are certain that the only way to quieten the ongoing chaos in your mind is via writing yet it becomes an immense task to put your thoughts down to a written form.
Yes there is absolutely no dearth of ideas, in fact sometimes the deluge of thoughts just overwhelms your mind and still you are frozen with an undefinable fear of expressing them. This confusing phase that I am going through is so difficult to explain in words. They say that writing is therapeutic because it helps channelize your feelings and give them a direction.
So here I am with a bunchload of thoughts which haunt me from time to time.
Through this blog page I will try to present a chronicle of assorted experiences related to various interests such as movies, songs or books that I have loved, relationship/parenting issues that I have seen of others or personally dealt with, exotic recipes that I have modified or invented and last but not the least my travel stories which occupy a very special place in my heart.
