    That's Me!

    One thing you need to know about ‘me’ — I have guts and lots of them! Wait wait…I am not the only one saying it ! It’s my birthday today so I happen to be a ‘Virgo’ and here I am giving you an account on what a Virgo woman is like? Its not composed by me obviously. I have saved this page in my ‘lappy’ since the year 2010. Today,  I have a strong feeling to share it and what an occasion ! So here it goes… Being gutsy doesn’t mean she is not as shy and as reserved as she seems to be. It’s just that she can do anything and…

    Mind Your Temper

    Temper is a pompous ‘driver’; it can take you to bizarre rides on unseen routes and admit it, we all have our moments. Temper alone is capable of making or breaking anything. However, if you know how to control your temper, you can definitely come out of whatever turmoil you are facing, that too unaffected. But that doesn’t hold true for everyone. There are some haughty people who believe they own entire world and there are some generous people who silently bear the temper moments of others, without a groan. Sometimes too much forbearance is taken as your weakness and not strength; and people start manipulating you. There comes a…

    Celebrating Entropy

    Hello… you organized people, out there! I hope, No…I am sure you must be doing great, since you live a ‘structured life’ unlike me. You supposedly are the “early to bed, early to rise” types, who do everything in a planned manner! Good for you but it never works for me. My life remains in a steady disorder; in unavoidable ‘entropy’, most of the time. You want to see what kind of person am I? I am that kind of person who every night, sets an alarm initially at 5.00 am (after a thought), resets it half an hour early. When the morning dawns and the alarm beeps, I never forget…

    Wo (Man) Power

    You talk about women empowerment all the time but are you ACTUALLY prepared to accommodate women ‘with power’? Well, my answer is… Not really. Since time immemorial, you have considered woman “an icon” of selfless love, care, silence, sacrifice and forbearance. You still want to see her the same. She has been gifted with countless virtues by Nature; and has, herself, acquired many. She has mastered multitasking and possesses great managerial skills making her a fine group member as well as an excellent leader. You say she is weak ‘emotionally’ but in my opinion, that is the very basis of her enormous strength. You say she is weak ‘physically’ then I…

    Human…be Humane

    Human being is considered as the most beautiful and the most advanced creation of Nature. Moreover, human brain is said to be most superior in the entire animal kingdom and is said to be the reason for its dominance on planet Earth. At times, I think what is it that makes human so advanced? It eats, sleeps, and breeds; just like any other animal. In between, it works just to make sure that it continues to eat, sleep and breed. So what makes human, a “Human” and other animals less “Human”. Humans form families: So do many other animals. Humans form societies and demonstrate division of labour: Obelia, a Sea-fur (meagrely, an animal…

    “Watch it”

    When we wear something new, admit it or not but there is a secret wish to get noticed; and showered with compliments. There are times when it happens and then there are times it doesn’t. It all depends on the variety of people we meet, in our day to day life. Some of them are really interesting and some make your life more interesting with their responses. Well I am wearing a new Palazzo toady. See, how I get noticed, complimented and commented: “What is it that you are wearing today?” “Oh this! (That’s me, pretending to have forgotten), ‘This is Palazzo’ (As if she doesn’t know), I continued…”I bought it…

    Raining Blues

    “Rain” has different meanings for different people. For some, it’s a sign of relief from the scorching heat of summer; for some, it’s an opportunity to get wet deliberately and do some cha-cha-cha; for children especially, it’s is a time to do splatter; for elderly it’s a time to sit back and relish their favourite home made cuisines. Likewise, for a seed, it’s a hope of rejuvenation and for a bird it’s a blessing to quench its long time thirst. In fact, it won’t be wrong if I pronounce ‘Rain’ as the lifeline of this Earth. Just like everyone else, rain used to have significance to me too. I come from…

    CHUMSUM

        This summer was awesome because I met the best of my buddies, after almost two years. And now that we all have children, it was kind of special. Some fourteen years back, we bumped into each other. An instant connection led to a spontaneous friendship.  Together we laughed; we cried (Okay, it was I, most of the times); we argued; we fought; we mocked; and we sulked . In short, we drove each other nuts and today, here we are, so far still so near. We were kind of fanatical, who spent some nastiest moments together and some best ones too. Everybody admires and longs for such a friendship and…

    Give me ‘The Password’

    I know ‘You’ must be very busy. I just hope that you get my message as we are not really communicating of late. I miss you so much. There used to be times when we were truly connected. Though we have never actually met, I have felt your presence. You were so concerned about me and granted my every silly wish. I could connect to you anywhere anytime and your response was so instant and spectacular. That was the time when my wishes were very innocent and naive. So is that the reason you granted them right away? As time passed you started keeping me in waiting and would listen…
