‘Where life meets death.’
(At the War Cemetery, Kohima.)
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! 😀
Today is Day 2 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words and the theme today is resources that we have/use.
The term ‘resource‘ is a very wide one.

Over the last few days we’ve seen plenty of torrential downpours in the city and this has been a blessing for Bengalureans who have been waiting to see a dip in the mercury after the unusually hot summer this year. The sweltering hot days suddenly gave way to a slight nip in the air and dark storm clouds shook up the skies bringing down heavy downpours almost every day. Continue reading
