    Its a Girl !!!!!!!

    Our bundle of joy came into our arms on Jan 27th, making the day the most important day of V’s and my life so far. The birth of our little girl has been the single most gratifying experience of my life until now. Although I have known my little one for a good 9 months,  the kicks and the somersaults I have felt inside me, it was fascinating to put a face to the little person I have known and carried within me. The feeling is just beyond what I can express in words. To put it straight, the birth of our daughter has reinforced my purpose in life. Labor…

    Ah! March is here..

    There are so many things I love about March and what tops the list is the start of spring! It is a pretty sight to watch the landscape choke with flowers at their colourful best, the greens of all shades burst forth on bare trees, and ofcourse the water in the swimming pool is not too cold anymore 🙂 As I was driving through stifling traffic today, I had enough time to take my eyes off the road and that is when I was drawn to a lane of Jacarandas.  They look like hazy purple smoke when seen from afar and they make the best flower carpets! Ah, the joy of little things.. As…

    Ruckus teaches a lesson

    Today has been one of those days when anger took over the best of me no matter how hard I tried to suppress it and it worked out just well at the end. So the story was I had to get my Dubai visa extended for a month and I had to visit the visa processing agency. I had already made a visit late last week and they bluntly handed over a checklist to me and asked me to get all the missing documents even before checking through the list of documents I currently had despite of me asking them multiple times. So there was this 1 additional document I…

    The Power of Appreciation

    Time and again I am reminded of how appreciation and giving credit to little things any person does can build to become an ocean of motivation and self-confidence in him/her. Not only does the person become proactive and enthusiastic to do things better, he/she also sets higher targets for themselves and surprise you. I think it comes from the basic instinct of any human being to be felt important. Appreciation can be a subtle act of telling “I recognize what you did, I like it and I care”. It can do wonders in building the relationship between any two people. Be it a husband and wife, friends, a parent and…

    Conflicting Thoughts..

    So its been a long time since I wrote on my space here. The mundane routine of juggling between work and other essential things had kept me from coming here for so long. As I stare out of my window looking at the lush green plants, the droplets of water on the leaves  and the butterflies making their way to the flowers, I realize the manic city life is getting to me. I am a person who loves change and its interesting how a place can get to you once you get stuck in a cobweb. A routine of just sailing through the day. Such are the times that makes me want…

    The Monsoon Wedding ..

    They say that the courtship period is the most exciting phase of a relationship. But coming to think of it, post marriage seems even more fun! Not only do you get to spend most time with your best friend, you also get all the importance and the attention you have ever been craving for! Let alone a whole new wardrobe for yourself 😉 Retrospecting the ‘event-of-a-lifetime’, it now feels like things got over at the wink of an eye with – the shopping spree to awaiting for the near and dear ones to arrive home to the ruckus we made together. To sum up, it is the indeed the people…

    F.R.I.E.N.D.S

    I was thinking of old friends today And how many have slipped away Stopped calling, got married, lost touch Found new friends, got busy or just moved on. Friends come and go, but the precious few always hold on The list of thick friends is always slim And its those who remain prominent. Reminds me of a train journey with destination unknown People get on, people get off And there are some who travel till the end With crackling laughter and colours bold I cherish the times spent together – forever This one’s for All you wonderful people I have met so far! I have tried to put together some…

    An Attempt

    I read and follow umpteen blog posts of friends of mine and have always wondered ‘how do they get the dedication to write religiously’! And more importantly, how do they come up with such interesting topics to write about! Well, I have always wanted to get started with blogging to share my experiences, but never got around to it. Just like one of the innumerable interests I have but havent traveled that extra mile to realize it. So my fiance laid the platform and set up the blog for me, not to mention my ‘I dont like this theme’ sessions until we finally stumbled upon something that I liked!! Thanks…
