Man vs. Wild

“Green, green everywhere; Not a grass to pick” Indeed you can not step out of your jeep. You are dazzled by the landscape, your heart pounds to the rhythm of the motor engine, you overflow with feelings and yet you are soothed with beauty. If only you could break open the door of the jeep…

Weight Issues vs. Image issues

You think you have weight issues? Tell me, are you obese? Has the blood pressure in your body got so high that you think you can not live long?  Do you have serious medical problems? No. Then I am sorry dear but I don’t think you have weight issues. Constantly checking the net for weight…

Cheers to Irritants

Life is a test of our patience. There are just too many ways to irritate us. Say we are travelling in a very crowded bus after a hard day’s labour. Somehow we just find our self adjacent to somebody with a very unpleasant body odour.  When we get home we are met with the poorest…

The Art of Making NOTES Effectively

Piles of books, copies filed with notes, book xeroxes flying around. Before the exam, you never know where to start. The easiest solution to this problem is to have your own personal notes. What do you mean by personal notes? A categorically arranged volume of information for exams or other academic purposes. How will they…

Did you click?

Life goes through a constant change. More than thrice in our life we end up in a completely new place with completely strange faces. What do we do then? Of course start our life over. The first step: Make friends. When? With whom? How? Here is your answer. Hurry. You need to know a lot…

Friend: Have you been?

I spotted you there, Your wind ruffled hair, And for a moment I wanted to call out. For the sake of days past. For the smile on my face you brought, That is so rare that it may be lost. For the games we played, In hidden alleys. For the charming noon, Too difficult not…

ESSENTIALLY COMEDY

  Just yesterday I was reading ‘The Great Indian Novel’ by Shashi Tharoor. I have read many other adaptations of Mahabharata which are much more romantic and appealing to senses. So what was essential thing I loved about “The Great Indian Novel’? Dripping with sarcasm, rich in humour, the book makes you laugh till you…

Joy of Working

One day while having a normal family conversation I asked my father a question,”Papa, what do you enjoy the most in life?” The answer was simply shocking,”Working”. What was more shocking was that he actually meant it. No sarcasm intended. Working- that thing we do begrudgingly every day, the thing we go on ranting about,…

The Castle of Cards

I have abandoned sleep, Just to think some more About God’s great gift In providing me with this beautiful bounty Of love and of joy, Of immense beauty, Of wishes and dreams Built like a castle of cards To be destroyed by a single whispering breeze; Conniving as the wind is Letting the sails up…

Teaching and Influencing Kiddoes

Seeing a kid running down the street with a plastic bat in hand reminds us of our childhood days. Our memories may have blurred with time but some important points from that stage of life remain crystal clear in our mind; our playmates, our blunders and achievements among them. Another thing we remember are the…

FIGHTs: A few benefits

Fights are some of the most important occurrences in life. However fights are ultimately a nuisance. We fight, we take out our anger on known or unknown people, after it ends we think about it, we think of the reasons we are justified, then doubts creep in our mind, sometimes we think how would things…

In Love with ‘House Chores’

I am an extremely lazy person from childhood. I would be quite surprised to find one person that is lazier than me. I do hope such a person exists. I have been pampered as a child. I usually refrain from tying my shoe laces, combing   my own hair and cutting my nails. I am…
