I often wonder why it happens this way—Just when you’ve been working hard to set things right and finally they all seem to come together and fall in place, life suddenly throws a volley at you, grounding you like never before. Just why? Continue reading
Good Morning! How are you doing this Monday morning?
A little thought for myself and for everyone who is reading this today, as we begin another busy week ahead. I’ve had a wonderful weekend and have actually had a good time catching up with a friend who came visiting after almost a year. Continue reading
This has been a month of work, rest, travel and quality time with the families and the parents. Even though I’m always grateful for all the good times, there has also been a lot that’s been weighing on my mind, over the past few weeks. Continue reading
Summers in Bangalore are getting warmer with each passing year. But, I’m glad for one thing. I enjoy wearing my cotton sarees the most during this season more than any other time of the year. Cottons are the best and handlooms are my favourites. Only recently, we celebrated the Bengali New Year and of course, it was yet another occasion to pull out one of my favourite nine-yard beauties that hardly ever gets to see the light of the day.

We take so much pride and happiness with what we do, day in and day out, so much so, that for many of us, a major part of our self-esteem is deeply rooted to how our work defines us, eventually making us the person that we are. All this happens irrespective of our day to day conscious awareness of how inextricably tied we all are to the roles assigned to us.

Breathing in, I calm the body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is the only moment.
I love this quote by Thich Nhat Hanh. If you asked me why, I’d tell you that’s all because lately, the science of breathing has taken over my life. Quite literally.
For the past 25 odd days, I’ve been on a break from active blogging and most of social media to devote time exclusively for reclaiming my health. For the most part, it has meant getting more deeply involved with yoga and breathing exercises, and meditation. Continue reading
