Of trails and travails.

Every once in a while, the city closes in upon you and you choose to run after the sereneness of the outskirts, the hill stations, the backwaters, the mountains, don’t you? I almost managed to do the same. I say managed because we had failed to acknowledge how many more would also be looking forContinue reading “Of trails and travails.”

Dog weds Goat.

(Not fake news!) I am angry. Seething with anger, if I may so until I go on to the next news piece which arouses the same emotion in me. This probably has something to do with the click bait theories and algorithms being run by all social media outlets and even news agencies these daysContinue reading “Dog weds Goat.”

Karma.

Karma, they say, bites back. Sometimes in the cold. When you’re sweater-less! Taking you back to a couple of months ago. A friend returned from Kashmir, the ‘Paradise on Earth’, having toured among the snow capped mountains and under the blazing sun, in the cold, dry and biting winds and by the sparkling lakes. HeContinue reading “Karma.”

Valparai Tales! Part 2.

Contd from… As I sweat in the Bangalore heat, while doing absolutely nothing apart from just breathing, which you would all acknowledge is a very crucial, and from what I know the most important factor for our existence, I think back of the vacation I recently took. And promised a second post on. In myContinue reading “Valparai Tales! Part 2.”

Nostalgia.

As I stood by the the window of the balcony, my nose was pressed to it, my breath frosting the glass around my lips, I saw the winds outside swirling, droplets of water being bullied into submission, lights from the night lamps streaming through the air, making the paths of water borne air above theContinue reading “Nostalgia.”

Valparai Tales! Part 1.

As another three day long weekend came up, the crowd of Bangalore, like me, decided to move away from the city to the surrounding hill stations where temperatures dipped and the real feel was more in the fresh early 20’s rather than the tiring late 30’s! What do you expect when seemingly an entire cityContinue reading “Valparai Tales! Part 1.”

A Smile Here. A Smile There.

He looked visibly frustrated. And he had reasons to be so. He’d been on his feet for almost half the day and the ordeal was not over yet. He kept shuffling his feet across the floor, trying to visit each table more than once. He knew his boss was keeping a tab. He had toContinue reading “A Smile Here. A Smile There.”

Unravel the Travel!

As promised (to no one in general), here’s a continued set of anecdotes from my trip to Gujarat! Let’s begin right from the beginning of the trip, like is the norm unless I choose to write in reverse chronology. That’s a good idea but for another day! Anyone who’s spent even a day on BangaloreContinue reading “Unravel the Travel!”

Life Notes #11.

Once in a while the Life Notes series of posts should be revived. They are so easy to title! 😉 *** I went on a tour to the Indian state of Gujarat with family recently. It was fun filled, exciting, adventurous, reminiscent of the two decades we have spent together. Sure we had our tough momentsContinue reading “Life Notes #11.”

FanGirl-ing over Daniel.

I generally don’t do mid week posts. And certainly not early morning mid week posts! But here’s one thanks to Daniel Fernandes; and my roommate who rushed around the house waking up probably every soul in the building while she tried to not miss her morning flight from the airport 72 kms away! Why IContinue reading “FanGirl-ing over Daniel.”
