Bloodied wings.

“No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. … There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don’t ask, walk!” ~ Nietzsche.   Out my grilled windows of opportunity, I eyed the wings hung outContinue reading “Bloodied wings.”

The Cycling Chronicles.

What do I have in common with Lance Armstrong? Greg LeMond? Peter Sagan? Nothing at all. Except that they are some of the best cyclists humankind has known and I might probably be one of the worst. Or let me just be modest and say, humankind might see me as a person who’s awkwardly seated,Continue reading “The Cycling Chronicles.”

Leave it in 2017.

Inspired by a video John Green put up last week on his channel Vlogbrothers, where he lists out changes he would want to see in himself in the upcoming year, a public list where he recounts all that could have been better in 2017, I thought of inking my mandatory year end post on theContinue reading “Leave it in 2017.”

Life Notes #13.

The last life note that I wrote had to do with my entry into public speaking, with me emceeing for one of our corporate events. This one has to do with public speaking too but this time I am putting a lot of other people on the stage, wanting them to enjoy the stage justContinue reading “Life Notes #13.”

Life Notes #12.

As I took the microphone in my hand this time, I knew this wasn’t a rehearsal any longer. The day had arrived, the clock had struck. I expected butterflies but there weren’t any. Not even caterpillars! I spoke into the mike. My voice faltered. I looked at my co-host for the event. He assured me to go on.Continue reading “Life Notes #12.”

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.”

Some Salsa Spice!

One of my fascinations has always been ballroom dancing! Though not strictly ballroom, salsa is what my feet dabble in these days. Salsa, believe me, teaches you life lessons! And so much about interpersonal relationships. No, no! Don’t laugh. I’m serious. Read on.  1. Twirl the girl! So salsa, like most other ballroom dances, requiresContinue reading “Some Salsa Spice!”

Life Notes #10.

Among the few worldly possessions I own, these are a few stones that I have. Actually they are more like pebbles from river beds. I’ll leave you guessing how I ever even laid my hands on them! I took them out after a really long time today. A friend suggested an idea which I turned downContinue reading “Life Notes #10.”

Life Notes.

My mother rarely reads my blog. Just because… With the 100 Happy Days having been conquered, I was really excited and insisted at least thrice (in two minutes!) about reading my blog. She gave in! And then she started going through the other posts I had put up and as fate would have it, landed upContinue reading “Life Notes.”
