i haven’t been blogging or writing for a while now. this is discounting the paragraphs i write on the evernote app on my phone that thanks to the wonderfulness of technology, pop up on my computer immediately. for the last six months, there have been sufficient reasons, so i say, that have kept me away from the computer, kept me away from that quiet time that … Continue reading on blogs, not blogging and the multiple excuses the mind kicks up!
I got a pedicure yesterday. It isn’t that big a deal in the current world of persistent groomers, but given that I get it twice a year at best, it’s a big event in my life. Also we have a puppy nows so even small things like pedicures need to be fitted into schedules. Just to clarify, I’m not anti-grooming but I must admit, I do see people … Continue reading pedi-cures that don’t cure and life
Hello everyone. At the outset, my apologies. I have been very irregular here and I have no excuses. I had no ideas/motivation in October. Then to push myself to write more I’ve set myself some huge targets in writing for November and December and taken on some work that maybe I shouldn’t have given the time = money equation. What am I upto? I am working on … Continue reading waddle on!
We sold our car today. Technically, we sold it last week, but it was picked up today. And with this one event I feel a hollowness of loss for the first time about a possession. Or for the first time that I remember. I must have felt it before in my 34 years of existence. It wasn’t even my car. Before feminists or women or whosoever … Continue reading the fallacy of possession

I have lived all my life in India, and while it might seem like a fairly similar space to operate in, I still think I find myself wondering about the question… where do I come from? If someone was … Continue reading where is home and other conversations in my head
The year has just whizzed by, and while I am still getting used to saying 2015, I thought I could journey back into what 2014 meant for me… When days are slow and frustrating, I find it a good exercise to write down all that’s gone my way, so that I step away from the gloom and think about the light. 2014 has been a good year for … Continue reading celebrating my 2014!
I love solo travel, it has its ups! What I also think is that when you find that ideal travel partner, then solo travelling can be rather boring and sometimes actually lonely – despite the new experiences. At the end of the day, all I want is that other person to share it all with! This time it wasn’t just about travelling alone, but rather about working in … Continue reading your nails, my story
last week i wrote a post on “why i write?” and at the same time, i sent out an email to all my writer friends or friends who are writers and asked them to answer it too… the answers ranged from three words to more than 10 emotions – everyone had something to say and something to feel when they spoke about writing. let me … Continue reading why do i write? (part 2)
i write to find my voice. to clarify and to argue. to understand. myself. to find. i write to remember. memories darkened in black, coloured with words, shaped by emotions. i write to create. worlds. images. sounds. people. emotions. conversations. i write to express. to tell that story. to try and paint what my head seems to be screaming at me. i write to tell stories. of who i am. … Continue reading why do i write?
