Glistening sunshine

As I lay in bed on a lazy Sunday, the rhythmic pitter-patter of raindrops on the window panes got me thinking about writing a post today. (I know it’s been donkey ages since I wrote something )  ♥♥ Why do rains make us so mushy? ♥♥ Hearing a romantic medley makes us moon about matters of the […]

They keep turning.” – Rumi  I happened to attend an event organised by Zorba The Buddha on the swirling dervishes, last friday at their complex in Ghittorni on MG road.

A mad hatter in march

01.01.2015 Since past couple of years, a new trend had emerged in my life as most of my friends, cousins, peers, etc had reached ‘that’ milestone of turning 40!

Bangalore Diaries: By the river @Bheemeshwari

14th November 2010 – With boredom nagging at our heels, we decided to head off for a day trip somewhere nearby.

Pondy Frames 2011

  As I got on the bus at Kalasipaylam, I had misgivings on seeing the “sleeper” like seat. I was not disappointed – these were bloody uncomfortable, made worse by the bad roads and potholes. I was constantly bouncing on my berth all night – the challenge was to keep my whole body on the […]
