I am still deciding on the theme of this post... should this be a rant against people who advise me against overthinking? Or should it be more to the lines of seeking support from people who suffer from a similar condition (yes, that's what it is!) Or perhaps a justification- discourse majorly covering issues of … Continue reading Don’t overthink..
It was on one such visit with an electrician that I received a panic call from my sister. I’ll have to give her credit for at least trying to sound composed while relaying the Gynaec’s review of her then-current situation verbatim, ‘you’re 2cm dilated; the baby could be coming anytime now!’ In a second, … Continue reading Quit Fighting… you’re meant to be different!

Note: the run-up to my entrepreneurial journey shall continue with the upcoming chapter(8) but I was itching to share this un-real experience with you... 😊 kindly bear.. There was nothing unusual about an ordinary afternoon on the 18th of this month when a friend and I exchanged texted-pleasantries. After the initial complaints of not keeping … Continue reading 20 SECONDS TO GO LIVE
After being in double-minds for the longest time, we settled on a location that was then being used as a hardware-store-house; full of pipes, nuts & bolts, chemicals and things I had never seen before in my life! When it’s shutter went up for the first time, dust was the least of our concerns for … Continue reading Quit Fighting… you’re meant to be different! (7)
November came with a couple of surprises... It started with rumors surrounding company-closure that covered an entire spectrum between, it’ll most likely happen by end of this week TO the whole idea will fuzz out in matter of days. We had just come back from an official ‘off-site’ when this news-bomb dropped and I … Continue reading Quit Fighting… you’re meant to be different! (6)
If only time took care of everything and we did justice to playing our part by drifting in its tide... Well, this story required a little more participation than that. The one-month market research deadline had already entered the third month and all information-hoarding was getting us nowhere that I could call a milestone! It … Continue reading Quit Fighting… you’re meant to be different! (5)
Another year has passed in a jiffy; on this day last year, it looked like 365 long days ahead but today it seems that with a single snap of fingers- Abra-Ca-Dabra… it's behind us!! Just like every other year, this one too didn't offer monotony; each day had been different from the other, while some … Continue reading The Unsung Hero
While world history mentions the use of this colour at times in context of beauty and strength and at others as a sign of defiance and revolution; enough can never be said about the importance given to it even in Hindu customs and traditions. Yet, my relationship with the colour Red can at best be … Continue reading King of colours!
Is it only me or there are more people who feel that the pace of everything around us has suddenly gone up? Just three months back I bought the latest, coolest, best-in-market cell phone (which was way more than the designated budget that further led to altering subsequent planned expenditures) and today morning I saw … Continue reading Click click click… or CLICK?
Did the week just get over?? But wasn't it Friday when I came to bed? As I snoozed the morning alarm, snuggling deeper into quilt, the awesome dream that I was a part of, had broken ( I was interviewing Mr. Rajnikanth on the lines of spending a day with the Star) Finding an excuse … Continue reading The Weekend that was…
For someone who doesn’t take to changes with open-arms, my teething period to get used to the dynamics of ‘hostel-life’ was slightly prolonged or perhaps I should re-phrase it and say that my appreciation for an amalgamated independent-community-living was a little slow to take-off. As much as I itch to defend my efforts, in heart … Continue reading Serendipity
I have recently joined two groups on Facebook, solely because the invites were initiated by two dear friends. Though I can't comment on whether they did it because they felt I needed them or because I could contribute to them but in either case, there is no complaining 😊 At my end too, courtesy had … Continue reading Strength stemming from Unlikely sources
I personally don’t know of anyone who has never been acquainted with any kind of music. It is something we take for granted because even while we were busy howling-pooping and sleeping, our mothers probably sang over a thousand lullabies to soothe us. So, it’s safe to say that music needs no introduction.. and we … Continue reading Eternal companion of Mankind
How important is food for our survival? Very!! I'm sure we agree that this isn't one of the smartest questions doing rounds and the answer is pretty obvious but the other day I realized that good food can do much-much more than nourishing our body. Last week was full of those especially crazy days … Continue reading Just when you think you’re done!
When a child takes birth, so does a project. No, we don’t think about it as that, at least not consciously. But because this notion has survived the million years of evolution, its execution has become as involuntary as breathing. No one can refute the Ultimate goal of this project as noble- to groom … Continue reading Unlearn
Before I let adulthood take-over completely, I was quite a brat (being the youngest also helped being the most pampered) and the funny thing was that I was proud of it! My parents truly deserve some kind of a national acclaim for bringing me up! In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that I … Continue reading Sucked into Adultness
How many things do we do that remind us of the life we’ve led or the one we thought we’d lead? My life looks simple and uncomplicated on surface. With all mandatory things ticked off the check-list, there isn’t much I should be cribbing about (reference: society’s checklist). Each day is almost an exact-replica of … Continue reading # ForOldTimesSake
‘Don’t apply so much pressure. It leads to uneven thickness and uncooked edges’, almost snatching the rolling pin from her hands, Kasturi reduced the stove’s flame. Savitri, the eldest of her brood had turned nine this year and by all standards was ready for marriage. As a mother, she had tried to give her as … Continue reading Shades of Love
I was more relieved than glad, I had made it through the almost-normally-crazy day at work and stepped out early enough to be home for dinner. Not in the best of moods, I was flipping the channels of radio getting irritated with the quantum of ads one has to hear when all one needs is uninterrupted music. … Continue reading the unfinished song
The first thought that popped after giving a fancy name to the excel was, where do I start from? An offshoot of a proud service-class tree with no connection in the world of entrepreneurs and businessmen, what I knew about starting a new venture was in one word- Zilch! It was perhaps destined to … Continue reading Quit Fighting… you’re meant to be different! (4)
