A – April

Not that I intended to participate or that I had any such plans. I usually used to notice that the A-Z challenge has started, nearly a week after it had. That meant I couldn’t catch up anyway. 😛 I had taken up this challenge once before. Today when I realized that it’s been just two…

New found love!

I owe a big thank you to all you lovely people who commented on my last post and pushed me to stand up for myself. I did pick an opportunity to speak about how it is tough to manage without a help and that I get tired too, with all the work. It was more like a fight,…

Meanwhile in my garden..

I was very sad that my plants weren’t growing. So I reached out to Dr. Rajendra and Dr. Vishwanath, with whom I had attended a workshop, in January. They pointed out that problem must be in the compost I used and gave me suggestions of what I could do. After following their advice, my plants…

Towards a greener future!

Like I had mentioned in my year-end post, I had been on a lookout for workshops on gardening. Though I had read about a few, I couldn’t find any that would suit me and I was occupied on most weekends with a lot of other things. On New Year’s Eve we visited the event that…

Visit worthy eat-outs.

Me and Bg are both fond of eating outside. Not everyday, but maybe a couple of days or during the weekends. We both are light eaters. We don’t go to places which have elaborate meals and various varieties and big buffets. What we prefer is are smaller places with light stuff to eat. We do…

Pure…

… luxury, bliss, gorgeousness. Pure silk! 🙂 Now, who doesn’t know about how famous India is for all the silk sarees and the varieties. From the Kanjeevarams to the Benarasi silk sarees, from Gadhwal silks to the Tussars. Lots of variety for the ladies to fall in love with! If you are in Karnataka, the…

Gardening

I have a keen eye for well-kept lawns and garden with huge fruit bearing trees and flower-bearing plants. Until I was 2.5 years old, we stayed in the IIMB quarters. Though I was really small, I still distinctly remember so many things. The huge area in front of every house. It used to be filled…

Bengaluru

Yup! That’s what pops to my mind first, when i think “B for …” . Maybe because it is extremely close to my heart. Every city is close to the heart of its resident, I guess. Over time we carve a niche for ourselves in the place we’ve stayed for long. It was here that…

A great way to begin the week!

Today has been a good Monday, in a long long time! I used to hate the feel of Mondays. The dread of having to wake up and go to office after the two whole days of staying at home, usually starts creeping in at Sunday noon itself. I get all grumpy and sulky by Sunday…

A place you call Home…

… An area that you lived for 24 years. The place where your school is. The lanes that you have roamed around so much that you know every shortcut. You know the cross roads to take. You know the places to eat, you know the parks to go for a walk. You know the market…

Every drop counts…

We don’t really know the value of a thing until we lose it. How many times have we heard this and thought, how true it is! A simple poem which I learnt back in school has somehow stuck in my mind for so long. I find it beautiful, coz the though essence is of much…

Ray!

After nearly a month and a half of browsing, reading specifications, finding outlets, going and checking out the features, price and taking test drives, we bought a Yamaha Ray!! Yay! 🙂 Though I was able to ride quite comfortably on a Kinetic Honda or a Hero Pleasure, the main concern when choosing the vehicle for…
