This has been a mixed kind of week, with very heavy rain, occasional cloudy days and an everyday all-pervading gloomy sky that seemed to spread out all across the horizon. Continue reading
The glow on the boundless depth of the open sky. Once upon a time in Bangalore. 2017
Here’s wishing everyone an easy, chilled out weekend!
Somebody once asked me, What do you like most about traveling?
I didn’t have an answer then But I do now. I think travel pushes me beyond my comfort zone and makes me look at myself with new eyes. Continue reading
Today is Day 4 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words and the prompt today is to Feature a day in your life or someone else’s life. I am writing about a day – a typical weekday, to be precise, in my routine, regimented, humdrum life. Weekends are for relaxing and I break my tight schedule on those two days —taking things as they come! But hey! every day is a new day, and every new learning brings us something good to be thankful about. Let me warn you it is a long read, so read at your own peril, or better still, grab a cup of coffee or tea before you do, so you don’t fall asleep halfway through the post! 😀
Catching a dash of colour in a grey monsoon sky!

With raging floods everywhere in the Eastern and Northern parts of the country, I’m only hoping and wishing that things come to normalise soon and that the those affected may find the strength to get on with their lives after the spate subsides. Continue reading
Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth—You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that—It lights up the sky!
Today, I bring you these shots from a few weeks back, when we still had the occasional bursts of red and orange streaks spread all across, at dawn and dusk. That was much before the sky decided to wrap itself in a bleary grey cloak, with the onset of Monsoon, bringing the much-needed showers and a dip in the soaring temperatures. Sad to say, that Bangalore skies were never this dull, as they are right now. When I’m at home, I love sky watching in the wee hours of the morning and feel lucky if I catch a sunset, while wrapping up the chores, in the evening. These days, the luminescence of the flaming sky is being sorely missed. Sharing some shots that bring back fond memories for me. Hope you like them.
So, how have you been and how was your sky this week? If you love taking sky shots, do share them by clicking the link below. You may also visit the link to see the beautiful sky photos people post from all over the world.
I’m sure you had a busy week. But, tell me, when you had some time to spare, did you spend it staring into your gadgets, or did you raise your head, to look out of that window? Did you realise how time flies and how days turn into nights and the weeks roll into months? We don’t often realise that spending mindful moments amidst nature every now and then can be a huge stress-buster. Do take some moments to stop…pause…watch…and see how much beauty there is for us, without our asking. When you do, I hope you enjoy them. Life, they say, happens in these everyday moments, while we’re busy chasing other things.
