A place that was called home.

I have such little time left in the day to do anything. Even logging in to read other posts has become impossible. The new project at the new client office has been sucking up all my time and energy. I do not want to get started about my commute woes! It’s sad that Bangalore has…

Travel Diaries – Dubare-Ranganathittu

After two trips consecutively, in months of December and Jan, I’d decided not to plan any travel for a while. With everyone saying, “How can you travel with such a small baby?”, we decided we’ll travel when he is a little older and things are more manageable. Little did we know, things are best managed…

3 most important values

Honesty – This holds the utmost importance to me. Nothing enrages me more than petty lies and dishonesty. I don’t mind it, if people speak the truth on my face instead of finding reasons or excuses. The principles of honesty are deep-rooted within me. My mind goes back to an incident that had occurred, back…

Making Memories

It is strange how every day looks the same when you look from afar. Doing the mundane jobs that every day is filled with. What you need to do is look close. Close, because there will be so many moments of joy and gratitude that you will miss out otherwise. I am blessed with a…

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…

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…

Of plans and updates

When you are really, keenly waiting or hoping for something, that is when the said thing keeps eluding you. Leaving you feeling sad and disappointed. I have been waiting for a call since about a week now. Haven’t received it yet. 😦 *Fingers-crossed* Otherwise, I am all keen on the trip that we are going…

The year that was and the one ahead!

The year is drawing to a close soon. With just one more day left, it’s time to reflect upon how the year that went by was and making new resolutions for the upcoming year. I have blogged very little this year. An average of one post per month, that’s it! But I wrote a lot…

Show Time!!

It’s been really long that I made an attempt to write anything here. Something that I have been occupied in the whole of last month is…. Dance!!! 😀 Yes.. After about 14 odd years, I got onto a stage again, to perform. Back in school, I was a regular in all extra-curricular activities, ranging from…

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…

X-Mas

I feel this is probably one of the widely celebrated festivals, irrespective of religion. Maybe holi is another such festival. I love the spirit associated with X-Mas!  It seems like such a happy festival! Everything decorated in red and green and so much merriment associated with it. When in school, it was one of the…
