Of bruises and choices #Musings

Last week as I was driving back home from the gym, around 10.30 in the morning on a weekday- at a busy junction where the signal never works and that remains unmanned despite the maddening rush- my car was brushed by an auto rickshaw. Before I had time to react, the auto sped off. I… Continue reading Of bruises and choices #Musings

Its that time of the year again. I was toying between writing a round up post OR bringing up my WOTY for 2022.

Epiphany #FictionMondays

Tears streamed down my cheeks, I kept wiping them away and blinked my eyes focussing on the road ahead. The last thing I wanted was to cause an accident. The sky was grey, clouds hovered all around as thunder rumbled – it felt like the weather perfectly summed up my inner turmoil. The heated conversation… Continue reading Epiphany #FictionMondays

She clasped her fingers tightly, her brow twitched like it always did when she was in deep thought. She asked herself for the 100th time. Was she ready to take the plunge? Ready to give up her carefree ways and brace herself up to take responsibility? Was she really in her senses? Should she take… Continue reading Choice #FictionMonday

Online classes and here is where we as parents are getting it wrong

Until the start of academic year 2020-21, we parents were blissfully unaware of the teaching methodology in school- yes most of us looked at the syllabus, home work, prepared our wards for competitions and various activities in school and asked them about what did they learn at school- but we weren’t physically present to see… Continue reading Online classes and here is where we as parents are getting it wrong
