My operating principles

Am too principled, is what I feel. Come to think of it, I have missed out on a whole lot of fun in life because that. The quote – “Don’t take life too seriously, no one makes it out alive anyway!” is maybe meant for people like me. I realize that, but my brain and…

I am on this earth to…

This prompt brought forth the thoughts that I keep trying to push to the background. I’ve deep down in my heart believed that I’m on this earth to achieve something big. I know that “big” is a relative term. Since childhood, I always felt that I need to prove my capability to my parents by…

Words that best describe me

On a spur, I decided to take up this 28 days personal discovery prompt challenge. It was done in Feb actually, but that shouldn’t stop me from taking it up any time, isn’t it? How it works is that, there are 28 prompts which I should write/blog about. I’ve decided to do it, over the…

A Birthday Letter To My Son

Dear Chintu, I was reading an article on tinybuddha about how it is the little things that actually matter in life. All this while I knew that I wanted to write down something for your first birthday, maybe a letter, a blog post or just a journal entry, which I may show you some day…

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…

Journey so far

Been so long that I feel disconnected. I don’t see some of my favorite bloggers writing anything either. 😦 The last four months have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride! Trust me no matter how prepared you think you are to be a mother you will be caught off guard. It is surprising…

Mommy Roles and Responsibilities

So Mi’s post on what kind of mom she will be, had me thinking. In fact this is something that I have been thinking about for some days now. Ahem! Let me clarify, there is no good news as of now. I am not having any babies any soon. 😛 But so many of my friends…

Entries from the Diary – I

Sometimes when I have this huge urge to write what’s on my mind and I cannot login to WordPress to blog, I write it down in my diary. Whenever I feel like sharing any of it here, I will put it down as Entries in the Diary from now on.   The one major thing…

SL Series – The Conclusion

I am gonna close the SL series with this post. She is an inspiration to me. I wanted to record these things so that I stay inspired and maybe can inspire a few more who read these posts. When talking to SL, I used to feel that she had some new story to narrate everyday….

SL Series V (The Home)

We all know the struggle involved in the current times in buying or constructing a house. While everyone wants one and keeps eternally planning on what’s best, SL went ahead and took the risk of buying a home at the age of 25. Now in a very well developed area in Bangalore, which wasn’t that…

SL Series IV (The studies)

I have a thing for well educated people. I admire the fact that they put in so much effort. Having worked at the premier science institute of India, IISc, I was lucky to have been in the company of such highly educated, yet down-to-earth people! So I am always in awe of such people. When…

SL Series III (The childhood)

Well.. We thought the in-laws problem is a common thing. After all which DIL doesn’t complain about her in-laws and where are there such great in-laws on this planet, who will be all praises for their DIL. They just belong to different species. Period. What we always told her was, “it’s your fault that you…
