There was a small girl,Hair thick and with a curl. There was innocence in her eyes, Looking up to the wise. She loved the man with all her heart,Then came a time when they had to part.Their love remained intact but something changed.Like the world had rearranged. She still loved her old man,But they no longer had the same plan. Distance and age had played an unfair game,Things between them were no longer the same. She tried her best to catch up,But it was lost between his work and filling the plate and cup.They still love each other,Because he is my father.He taught me things great,Thank you for toiling so hard and late. And teaching value for money,time an...

The winds of change I can feel,The truth I can no longer conceal.The good old days are long gone,I am stuck between dark and dawn.The power of the wind strong,It's new but sounds like an old song.For its a phase which shall pass too,and it all depends on what we do.Lessons to be learnt,and rule books to be burnt.Life never lets you sit comfortable,winds of change like you best when you are vulnerable.Dare not to under-estimate the power of the wind,They can change your mind.I am trying, trying hard.To stay strong and keep guard.I am the captain of my ship,and I shall not let the gust of wind whip my ship!This post is linked to Midweek Motif ~ Wind Power...

Sunday evenings are usually reserved for evening walks along the streets of Mylapore, which is usually bustling with people, going to restaurants, visiting temples and buying vegetables. I on the other hand just roam, you could blame my thin pocket. I see the famous softy ice cream, a small child and his mother relishing it. I just can't control. I say two hoods to dieting and health. But that's all, I remind myself telling health is important and abstain from the crime of eating an ice cream. At home of course, I am often welcomed with an ice cream, which I hardly resist. So I take an hour's toll, observing and admiring the reflection of Kapaleshwar temple's reflection shimmering in the wat...

Our fights are intense but silent,That still sort of quiet.The aftermath beautiful.Like a song so musical.Challenges amuse us,And we face it without much fuss.Present better than the past,And the future seems vast.We argue sometimes ,And then recollect the good old days.Boosts morale and motivates us,Sometimes things go on without much fuss.I am committed. To myself.Because some things you gotta do it yourself.Deep in thoughts ,to provide insights.Linking this post to Midweek motif- Commitment ...

Dear mamma and papa,life recently has been all action and drama.Full stops you taught but why not the comma?Resilient I am, but there is too much of trauma.Respect your elders you told,With gratitude hands, you fold.Not being submissive you did not,With so many lessons, you must have forgot.Always forgive and forget you taught,I feel  it is an action without thought.For forgiveness hadn't seen toxic people,I wish you had taught me how to deal with evil.The darkest hour has seen you with me,Around me, you always will not be.How to live alone you taught but why not without you ?When you both are gone and nobody around, what should I do?From school to husband everything you chose,I do not ...

Dear Blog,I have been postponing this post for too long now. I wanted to pour my heart to you from a long time. My heart is heavy and needs a companion. My parents and best friends tried to share the load. My parents have been the greatest support system, but few things still remain unsettled.  Lately, I have realized, that it is I and only me who can reduce the burden. But you being my humble abode, my heart wants to let you know. For I know you would listen to everything without telling, the following:"Just manage for few more months." Well, I would have if I could. Wouldn't I ?"You talk like you have lost it!" Oh, Do I? Sorry, my bad I even told you. Because you lost me. "It's o...

Rosie had everything she ever needed. Her dream job, time for her hobbies and an understanding husband. She was against the idea of marrying soon but when her long time boyfriend proposed her in front of Taj Mahal, under the star clad skies and shimmering white marble, it was no less than a fairytale and she couldn't say no. Two years of blissful marriage and no regrets but only memories. Alex loved kids and she loved  other's kids and did not want her own anytime soon. Career was her priority and she had everything planned. When to achieve what and her child was in her plan too. She was the Ms.Know-it all. And then one day came a woman knocking from child care agency. Rosie' ...

You would fall in love with my cover,And then I will turn you into my lover.I wouldn't let you sleep,Me, very carefully you would keep.Possessive and engrossed you will be,You will relish and cherish me.You will write down all the quotes,Share it and count the likes.You will read again and recommend,You will be sad it had to end.I am then added to your beautiful book shelf,I am proud of myself ,I lie there, my fate now unknown.I am happy because I am not alone.I dust myself daily unbending the bend.Patiently waiting for the next friend.This post is a part of the prompt from the BlogChatter.Prompt being: If I were a book!...

We are at the end of this wonderful journey to Incredible India. India is beyond the 26 alphabets and so is her rich culture, heritage and the problems she is facing.As Shashi Tharoor rightly put it,“India is not, as people keep calling it, an underdeveloped country, but rather, in the context of its history and cultural heritage, a highly developed one in an advanced state of decay.” Let us treat our guests with respect and handle our heritage with care. Let the government do its job and let us do ours by not dirtying surroundings. Please spare the monuments by engraving your names, it reflects a very bad state of mind. As far as my journey with my humble abode and you ar...

“One of the great things about travel is that you find out how many good, kind people there are.” — Edith Wharton  India has seen perceptible change when it comes to travel and the way we travel in the past one decade.My dad loves traveling and he says , travel by road meant only three options when it came to cars-Ambassador, Fiat and Standard.  Many of us haven't  heard or seen the last car brand my dad mentioned. It saw its demise simply because it would break down at the drop of a hat (that's what my father used to say). ** I don't know , okay?** Ambassador is the grand old dame and we can spot a few in a month's search, so is the case with something ca...

I was raised by my friends and teachers in Kendriya Vidyalaya. They came from all walks of life. Many kids of the brave men in olive. All religion, languages and customs and we embraced each other and the amagalmation amazing. It was diwali, eid , vishu and Christmas for everyone of us. The winter break during Christmas meant invitation to houses who beautifully decorated their house with the Christmas tree. For me it was time I could pester my dad to go on a long trip. After the visits to friends 's place of course. The feeling is beyond words .Christmas is that time of they year, when any travel could go perfect but could go haywire without planning. The climate is welcoming. You could vis...

Hill stations are my domain, and beaches I dislike. Places of worship is a visit sometimes to admire the architecture and sometime for peace of mind. My family visited every famous temple they came to know of and I was dragged along.  So the journey started with visiting temples and then as we explored more somewhere in an unknown yet familiar place the bug called the wanderlust bit me!Today, on the platter is temples. Because that is where we started. Here are a few "wow" temples that will make you wonder. Their history, weird customs and offerings.Dharmasthala: As the name itself suggests here is one pilgrimage centre which serves the devotees sumptuous food and all days of the year a...

When you appreciate that it is the journey itself that is more pleasurable than the destination. Sometimes, especially when you are young and carefree(says, my dad).There is palpable excitement when you prepare yourself for a jolly trip and then when the journey is to your grandma's place, a little remote village which has all the comforts of your own home and sports activities and carefree attitude that goes with it. Playing cricket and not worrying that the next ball you are going to hit is not aimed at  someone's window(pane) and the fruits and sweetmeats that you get only at some places.  After all this when you start the return journey which is multimodal and you do not need t...

There is this joke in Bangalore, if someone says its raining in Bangalore, make sure you ask which locality and which street. Well, its similar with India.  Few states have winter showers. One such state is Tamilnadu. The capital of Tamilnadu ,Chennai had to face the wrath of mother nature. The flood was brought down by themselves as well. That's altogether a different topic. There are so many measure one needs to take care when it comes to traveling, planning and plotting sometimes fail. You  can't be prepared for terrorist attacks or floods in a city that hardly has rains.If you are the person who has a boss who grants you leave in the last minute or an impulsive person and does ...

“India has two million gods and worships them all. In religion all other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire.” – Mark Twain Mark Twain has put it rightly, being rich in religion and yet secular enough what makes India a country. There are plenty of temples in India, famous and pious. And there are a lot of famous mosques, churches, and other religious places.Wiki says Jammu is the Temple city of India. I beg to differ because  there are so many famous temples across India. Our country could be called the country of temples. What say?So my history book kept on telling me that Meenakshi Temple and Kapaleshwar temple in Tamilnadu were temples one must not m...

Yeah, you read it right. Another post on the Indian railways .No, I am no brand ambassador of the Indian Railways and I did have other options for S. But the luxurious trains are something worth mentioning and the experience one must not miss out.When I was a small kid and it was our first long trip. I don't remember which grade I was in, but I do remember the trip very well because I was going to travel in Rajdhani for the first time and my social studies book had some really fascinating things to say about the luxurious train.After the first wonderful experience on this train, I had a few more and recently I have been bitten by the Shatabdi bug. So Shatabdi means centenary. To commemorate ...

Rail travel has always fascinated me. When I first started travelling, be it a social gathering or for long trips, I was happy, very happy. No, not because I am travelling, because I got to go on a train, that's because local commune in the city was by auto or bus, I was fascinated by trains. Until I was introduced to the world of aircraft and aerodrome, of course.I believe and have seen the steam engine locomotive (at Mysore, Rail Museum) pull and chug along the passenger bogies spewing smoke, coke dust leaving your clothes dirty and eyes bloodshot. Travel by train today has come a long way with the convenience of booking the ticket online and imagine ordering food on the rail. And for...

“The Wanderlust has got me… by the belly-aching fire” ― Robert W. ServiceLovely quote. Ain't it? Kinda describes my situation. When you are very busy and can't afford to take a break but need to take one. Or if you are a parent, I get it. It is extremely difficult to quench your thirst if you are bitten by the wanderlust bug.There are just so many factors, you got to be free, ask your boss the permission, approvals at home, budget (heavy on pocket would not be a rejuvenating trip. Would it be?) and the reasons unable to travel will just go on.The list maker I am, here are a few things that you could do to quench your thirst and satisfy your wanderlust: Small trips: Weekend ...

Welcome to the desert state of India. Studded with must-sees and filled with travellers. We shall be visiting the capital city- Jaipur.The pink city, as we left the air-conditioned airport, a warm breeze hit us. It was night and we wanted to retire for the day, but I kept on searching for pink things despite being tired. After all, it was called the pink city. As we moved further into the city,I could see the city painted in pink and our enthusiastic driver , being a local, narrated to us a beautiful story. So Prince Wales and Queen Victoria visited our country on a tour and the king Ram Singh painted the whole city in pink because the color signifies hospitality. Athithi Devo bhava at ...

Courage to me is eating my comfort food, a big bar of chocolate when times are bad and not feel bad about it. A lot of courage it takes especially when you are on the diet and when you know this bar of chocolate would mean extra workout which you don't have time for. A lot of courage it needs to pick up that bar, ain't it?On, a serious note , being courageous is a character that I think most of us must possess today. Especially we women, need to be courageous enough to stand against the wrong both personally and professionally. It needs immense courage to come out of comfort zone and take risks. Courage is a lot of things.Courage not only means standing up against wrong doing, of course it t...

Okay, folks just a simple thing today. Being weekend let us not focus on new places, a lot of places already added to the bucket list you see!Heard that famous proverb- When in Rome do as the Romans do.Well, it is applicable to India as well. Just kidding. We all know what this proverb means. Don't we ?There are few things that are legal and yet you can not do that in India. Sad, ain't it?Today I will be listing out all such things that you must not do in our country and places with some weird restrictions. Public display of affection in India is a no no. You will be stared upon, call it cheap or sit in India, in public places you do not kiss or PDA.We are the land that introduced ...

Hello, folks! Today we will be visiting the hill station town today. Let's beat the heat I say. The fragrance  of coffee , aroma of fresh cardamom,black pepper, and honey welcomes you to the city of Mercara,Karnataka. Headquarters of Kodagu.Road trips from Bangalore to Madikeri is amazing and Mysore to Madikeri is awesome. The air is cold and the greenery inviting. And once you start experiencing this the writer in you wants to spin something, but there are many such wonderful and soul-filling places in between, so  put your thinking caps and pens down and let mother nature and her beauty mesmerise you.I visited during the rainy season and it was a pleasant experience. I would...
