Today while heading out to meet a friend, I forgot my phone at home. I was barely ten minutes away from home when I realized this but decided not to go back. Instead, this may be a blessing in disguise, I thought. Disconnect from the online world and re-connect with the real world, I told myself. … Continue reading Not Without My Mobile Phone

Life is hard! Full of stress, pain, suffering and sadness. We need to keep a positive mind and keep our sanity through exercise, yoga, games etc. For some, swimming is therapeutic. For others, meditation works wonders. For writers like us, pouring our heart out on paper is the balm to our wounded soul. And despite all that, … Continue reading A Non-Doctor’s Mandatory Prescription to the Best Medicine
It was a steep but short flight of stairs. I tentatively put one foot above the other and heaved myself up in the dark over each step. I tried following the host who had welcomed me with a curt nod. But he had already disappeared from view. I came to the landing, then moved across … Continue reading The Book Club Shock Treatment
Dear You, (Yes, you, with your upturned nose, throwing disgusted glances my way)! How are you doing in that “I-can't-mind-my-own-business” world of yours? Hope you are comfortable. If not, please make yourself so. Sit down and put your legs up. Because this is going to take a while, let me tell you upfront. You, who keep … Continue reading An Open Letter to Everyone Who Think They Know Better
A month into 2016, and here I am taking stock of which resolutions I stuck to and which I got stuck into. My first resolution was decided a few days before 2015 had officially ended. I had met a tarot card reader, who urged that I meditate for 10 minutes daily. Only 10 minutes? I … Continue reading My New Year Resolutions – Report Card

For our New Year celebration, my parents were participating in a Golf Tournament which was followed by a New Year party. The venue was a small but challenging Golf Course, which my parents were looking forward to playing at. We would also get to meet other golfers and interact with them before the tournament officially … Continue reading Mr. Burp’s New Year Greetings
On a recent family trip to an out-of-town golf course, I had been designated as the unofficial photographer, and we had obtained permission for me to go on the golf course, despite not playing myself. I had a golf cart all to myself, and had promised to stay off the course; while my parents shared … Continue reading World War III : The Golf Cart, Ant Attack and the Mud Path
During my morning walk today, as I grudgingly trudged along on the jogging track, I noticed all the green trees that were lining the pathway. With much resentment and indignation, I noticed that the trees hadn't moved an inch from when I last saw them. No exercise for them, I noted angrily! Why is it … Continue reading Catch Me if You Can!
While cleaning and clearing up some old documents, came across a journal that my father had maintained when I was born. Interesting, I thought. Until, i came across an entry for when I was 3 months old. She can easily put her foot in her mouth and very often does so. Learnt it at a … Continue reading Foot in Mouth Syndrome
