The other day I was at the billing counter of the local horticulture shop, when someone rushed ahead with, “Hey brother, give me one packet of ….”
I gave a typical ‘irritated old woman’ look and the stocky, bespectacled youth returned an apologetic smile, “You see, I had finished my purchases and left the shop, but then I remembered ginger-garlic paste….” I moved aside and he bought his spices. Continue reading
Just have a look around — so many amazing things! Be it a delicate web woven by a tiny spider or the huge arch of a rainbow spanning the entire sky; or a dainty flower spreading its beauty and scent around or take the case of a minuscule plantlet sprouting out of a seed. Yes, I know, each and every thing has a scientific explanation —-

Hello once again! So, we were talking about the ‘Whatsapp forwards’ (I am not sure about you all, but at least I was). The variety available here is simply mind-boggling, to say the least!

Gone are the moments, never to come back again
and so have gone the days, months and years!
But every moment has its own memory,
and each day weaves a different story.
The months and years bestow their experience
too valuable are they in their own place.

are inseparable part of ours.
They stay with us always…..always;
become a part of our being…….
So, in all honesty, ………… have they truly gone?

No two opinions about the fact that, of late, the world as a whole has turned into a great roller coaster ride. With too much of competition in every walk of life, in every field imaginable, each person is busy running a mad rat-race — and trying to be the fastest of them all.
The result, as expected, is tremendous stress. And that is when one needs stress-busters and means of relaxation. Continue reading
When the God created and sent us on this earth, he bestowed some special quality upon each one of us. It may be evident in some while it could be dormant or hidden in some others. He has left it to us to look for it, use it or develop it. Continue reading
Yes, I do know that there is nothing mine about the tree, it is a community property, growing in the garden of the co-op housing society. However, this is the first thing that I see as soon as I open the curtains in the morning. And then, the entire day it stands there right outside my window – like a part of my family. Continue reading
