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…

D – Daddy

Come June, it’ll be 4 years. I keep counting don’t I? There’s nothing else that I can do either. Things have changed quite a lot since you have gone, but I must agree that time has healed the wounds to an extent. I was working the other day with my nose behind the laptop, when…

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…

Random Updates

Time just flies. Days, weeks and months just whizz past leaving me clueless when I think about what I have been doing all this while. It seems crazy when I realize it’s almost end of September. In another three months 2015 is done and dusted! I mean.. didn’t it just begin? Do you feel the…

My Green Attempts

My Dad had quite a green thumb. He had that love for gardening. As children we stayed in one of the greenest campuses in Bangalore. Every fruit and flower that you can commonly name was there in our garden. Though I was quite young, I remember that Dad spent a lot of time amidst the plants…

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….

Unrecoverable Loss

Last year on the same day, around this time, me and Mom were already at the hospital. We had to relieve Bg and my BIL, who had stayed there at the night, with Dad. Though Dad’s condition had suddenly gone haywire in the night and his BP had shot up to 200 odd, the guys…

You and I…

… seem a lot more closer now. Is it bad that it is that way? It’s not in the sense that I do what I want and since you are not here, I assume that you would agree with what I do. Though that happens some times, there are a lot of other times, that…

Kishore Kumar

A legend! We the entire family (Dad, Mom, sis and me) love his songs. I have no count of how many evenings we have spent re-playing the same cassettes collection, over and over again and singing loudly. 🙂 We loved the Kishore Kumar – Rajesh Khanna legendary combination songs, the most! 🙂 Music and books,…

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…

Horrible Fears

There are things that I am scared of. Things that I don’t wanna think about but end up creeping into my thoughts again and again. I think seeing a death in the family does this to people. As a child I always prayed to God that I should be the first one to die, as…
