W – Words

Words have so much power. Words are so beautiful. They can express all that you want, just the way you want it. Some people have a way with words, they just string them together and it becomes poetry. Though I have always been a person who prefers prose to poetry, I still can’t stop admiring…

V – Vintage

I know I have written nothing about our Agumbe trip from last year. It’s really sad on my part considering the fact that it was my most favorite trip in recent times. One of these days I have to come around and note down the things from this beautiful trip. Meanwhile using the opportunity of…

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…

T – Time

Some days are a race against time. Today has been one such day. What started off with cooking and packing for office at 6.30 in the morning is yet to come to a close. The day at office was hectic with a long list of work lined up, back to back discussions and meetings, clarifications…

R – Rendezvous

My best buddy who lives in Chennai got married in November. His engagement was more of a family affair that was organized by the girl’s family and was held in Kerala. We had decided to skip that, assuming we would anyway attend the wedding. Unexpectedly something really important came up at our end in November…

Q – Quit

Many times during this blogging challenge, I have come so close to quitting. Especially on the days that I haven’t been able to think of a subject to write on, till late in the night. It is always the easier option isn’t it? Of the multiple little voices in my head, one of it, keeps…

P – Passion

Time and again my thoughts keep revolving around the fact that in all these years I haven’t been able to identify what is it that I am passionate about? What is it for which I can stay awake all through the night and work for and not feel tired or worn out? True that I…

O – Obsession

I am obsessive about quite a few things, but what would qualify to closely being a OCD is my need for the kitchen platform to be clean. If I have to cook or do anything around in the kitchen, I need the platform to be clean. Staying with my MIL, who is close to 65…

N – New

From the past couple of years one of my resolutions has been to try something new. As in everything, I know I could have done better, but I am glad for a few things that I have tried in the past year. Usually there are a whole lot of things that I am interested in,…

M – Mondays

This challenge was supposed to have Sundays exempted, because there are 24 alphabets and 4 weeks in April, so you do the math. But I conveniently forget to write a post every Saturday. I wonder why. This adds to the pressure to meet the target on a Sunday. While I am talking about the days,…

L – Love

Love they say is overrated. Is it really? Come to think of it, what is life without love and care? Love in any form – love for your children, love between siblings, among friends, love for your partner. These form the essence of life. It is among these relationships that we exist and evolve. If…
