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
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! 😀
(Linking up with Wordless Wednesday.)
For this week’s #SkywatchFriday, I’m sharing unusually blue skies that we Bangaloreans have been blessed with, over the past few days.We’ve had an unusually hot summer, this year, verging on the unbearable.

I am writing for the Write Tribe Festival of Words #4
There is too much going on in life these days for all of us. Caught between action and reaction, we live our working days and our Sunday rest busy doing so much that we seem to pirouette endlessly most often to reach nowhere!

Once we allocate a day a week for creative pursuits, it then becomes a vast empty space through which we can…

Heartbreaking. Misty-eyed and emotional, we hug once more, as we always do. It’s never ever easy to see her off as the porter wheels her away, out of sight towards the check-in counter at the airport. Continue reading
Girdled by the Satpura ranges in Madhya Pradesh, lies a lovely hill town often referred to as the “Queen of the Satpuras!” As Madhya Pradesh’s one and only hill town, Pachmarhi enjoys a unique position as a popular tourist destination, where bridle paths lead into placid forest groves of wild bamboo, jamun, dense sal forests and delicate bamboo thickets, offering the space to unwind effortlessly and enjoy perfect tranquility. In other words, Pachmarhi is Madhya Pradesh’s most verdant gem and our trip was proof of that!
As an archaeological treasure- house, Pachmarhi has astonishing richness. There are cave shelters in the Mahadeo Hills which reveal rock paintings that date back to 500-800 AD, although some of the earliest paintings are estimated to be 10,000 years old. In Pachmarhi, contrasting cultures and ages co-exist in harmony as if time and trends mean little in this serene, wooded place. The highest point in the…

For the last couple of days, I’ve been in a dilemma.
There’s this sense of uneasiness about a few things that I’ve been trying to work out with regard to my blog and writing in general.
