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…

S – SmartBin

If you are a gardening enthusiast, you would be well aware of home composting techniques. Now there are a wide variety of options available to do the same. SmartBin is one of them. The first version of SmartBin, involves two stages of composting – one anaerobic and another aerobic. While the first stage gives you…

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…

C – Colors

As a teenager, when I had to pick clothes, my choice of colors would almost always be shades of brown or grey or pastels. I wouldn’t even look at the bright colors. Yellows and oranges would be a big no-no! I wonder why I was like that? The dresses I chose looked dull and Dad…

So far, so good…

I missed blogging about all milestones. The anniversary, the 30th birthday and so many more things. The inclination to blog also has gone down. 😦 I blame the office network for it. Commenting and posting is blocked in the office network. 😡 I can only browse through and read the posts. I cannot comment on them,…

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…

Swinging with joy!

There was a Kannada movie, quite an old one called BeLLi MoDagaLu. It was a beautiful movie, the story-line, characters and everything. One thing I liked a lot in the movie was a swing, a wooden one. It was shown in a lot of scenes and there was a song which was shot on it too. The…

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…
