Looking at the brighter side of life, being thankful and looking for joy in little things.

The last few days have been pretty stressful – with my daughter being under the weather for almost 10 days and something untoward happening at work. It feels a lot very stressful especially after you have just come back from a fun filled holiday at Goa. I have been feeling the blues, life seemed unfair… Continue reading Looking at the brighter side of life, being thankful and looking for joy in little things.

An ounce of faith #TellTaleThursday

I walk into the shopping mall, hiding my face carefully in the shawl. I look around frantically- at that man sharing an ice cream cone with his toddler, the grandma immersed in her book at Crosswords, the lovey dovey couple posing for a selfie and the man leering at me. Shouldn’t I boil with anger… Continue reading An ounce of faith #TellTaleThursday

Not merely a dream #TellTaleThursday

I am humming a song as I ride my green colour bicycle – the weather is perfect! And there he comes, riding on a horse, my knight in shining armour. Tall, dark, handsome, kind, funny- he has it all.

How I loved winters- the chilly days, hot cups of cocoa, going up the mountains and skiing with Jeeya. Jeeya and I- our world was complete. My daughter, friend, guide, agony… Continue reading Only If #FFFAW #FlashFiction

Of loving and losing #TellTaleThursday

This New Year is going to be different. I am going to find someone worthwhile to date, my clock is ticking, I need to hurry up. What are the chances of conceiving at 37? This baby fever has hit me suddenly and now I cant stop thinking about having my own. I have been too… Continue reading Of loving and losing #TellTaleThursday

Small Great Things-here is why as a dusky woman, I could relate to this book so much.

I have always been a die hard fan of Jodi Picoult. I started off with “My Sister’s Keeper” and I knew I had found an author whose books I can truly treasure. They are not the fairytale, romantic books, but talk of death, disease, court cases, despair, grief but at the same time, there is… Continue reading Small Great Things-here is why as a dusky woman, I could relate to this book so much.
