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

“Misha smile”. “A nice wide grin with your teeth showing” “Show me your dainty dress, hold it out from the sides as you pose” Click, click , click. Thousands of pictures, from the time she was born.

“Do you think you are strong Angel?” I asked my 6 year old. “Yes I am. The other day I was so tired as my dance teacher made me practise dancing again and again to get the perfect moves as she wanted to shoot a group video.
