When death arrives…

… it is nothing like you can imagine! If you haven’t seen it up close yourself, there is nothing that you can even compare it with. As children, whenever a death occurred in someone’s house, we would never be taken to see them. It was only our parents who went. My first encounter with seeing…

ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಲಿಯೋಣ?

ನಾವು ಸಹಜವಾಗಿ ಮಾತನಾಡುವುದು ಕನ್ನಡ. ಆದರೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಬರೆಯಲು ಹೋದರೆ ಬಹಳ ಅಸಹಜ ಎಂದು ಅನ್ನಿಸುತ್ತದೆಯಲ್ಲ, ಏಕೆ? ಎಕೆಂದರೆ ನಾವು ಮಾತನಾಡುವುದು ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಲ್ಲ, ಅದು ಕಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್. ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಪದಗಳೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚು. ಮಾತನಾಡಲು ಶ್ರಮ ಪಡುವಾಗ, ಇನ್ನು ಬರೆಯುವುದನ್ನು ಮರೆತು ಬಿಡಿ. ನಮ್ಮ ಸ್ಮಾರ್ಟ್ ಫೋನ್ಗಳೂ ಈಗ ನಮ್ಮ ಭಾಷೆಯನ್ನು ಅಳವಡಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದೆ. ಆದರೆ ನಾವು ಅದನ್ನು ಬಳಸುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ಹೇಗೆ, ಗೊತ್ತೇ? ಕನ್ನಡವನ್ನು ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಟೈಪ್ ಮಾಡಿ. 😀 ಫೋನು ಸ್ಮಾರ್ಟ್ ಆಗಿ ಅನುವಾದಿಸಿ…

U – Unwind

People have a variety of ways to unwind. Some listen to music, some paint, some just put their legs up and watch TV and some take a nap! Though all of these are valid for me at different times, having a nice conversation is what is most relaxing. I had never been the child who…

Three years later..

“I am not in a mood to take the bus all the way till there, Daddy will you drop me?” He would agree instantly most of the times. Sometimes he would crib a little and scold me for telling in the last minute, but he would still drop me. The fact that the place was…

GROWiNg up!!

Re-blogging this from my old blog, which I was reading today. I had written this post 5 years back! Am so glad I had made a note of this. Miss you Daddy! 😦 Watched dad becoming a kid again…. 😀 😀 * He recently joined a fifteen day yoga workshop, which happens to finish today.. Being home…

Entries from the Diary – II

There are R.D Burman’s songs playing on the radio. How much we would have enjoyed such times, isn’t it? It is so strange and seems almost impossible to find such company ever again. The strange part is that all those moments seemed so normal and usual back then. But now they seem so amazingly special….
