Tides of change

Life keeps posing new challenges. Sometimes I feel life is all about just facing these and trudging along. I get into this kinda mode/mood when things change. Even if they have changed by my own choice. I am at a new job now. It’s been less than two weeks. I am missing my old friends…

Rant-y affair!

If I let things be, the days that ran into weeks, will run into months. I wonder what gets to me. Sometimes, I am on a writing spree and I want make a note of all that’s happening. Then there comes a lull, which will stretch into hibernation, if I let it. A pattern that…

Hola!

The sunny hot March came and is about to leave and I couldn’t write a single post throughout this month. I was impressed with my regular posting in Feb. I must have jinxed it for myself. 😛 I have been super busy at work, in March. Ironically, I have resigned and am on my notice…

Birthday Celebration – III (Trip Day 2)

At the stroke of midnight, P and his wife brought out a cake for me. It had a photograph of me and BG on it! It was beautiful! P had also put candles, which read ’29’. 😡 We a had great time, cutting, eating and applying it on each others face! 😀 As if all this…

Birthday Celebration – II (My gift and Trip Day 1)

After having arranged for the gift, I was at peace as there would be no last minute rush of what to get. However I knew that BG would have no inclination to get a gift or plan anything for the birthday, like his typical self. So for one, I planned the Mangalore trip and two,…

Where are we headed?

Intolerance and stuff! What is really happening in our country? Why do such educated people start behaving so foolishly, recklessly passing comments? Also why is there such media in our country, whose job is not to provide information, but to sensationalize everything just to make money? I feel sad to see how things and perspectives…

And.. I am Back!

It’s been too long that I have been missing around here! I know! I actually wrote two posts in between, didn’t have the time to complete it and wanted to save it as draft. But the new WordPress layout kept saying “Saving” for a really long time and then I closed the window, only to…

Mixed Bag – IV

* I think the best kind of writing is when we simply write what’s on our minds. Not bothering about anything else in the world. I have now started thinking of stuff like, writing a book (maybe!). I know it may just a passing thought and something impossible to do for me. But who cares?…

Drawing the line

A friend of mine went through a divorce, a really bad one a few months back. Having been in contact with her and also having been her support since the beginning, I know everything about her situation. She has been calling me regularly since the beginning and telling me everything, asking for my advice or…

Completing the Circle

This is something that I learnt from the Professor under whom I worked at the beginning of my career. No, it is nothing to do with math, compass etc., in case you thought so, as I wrote about my Prof. What he gave as a simple piece of advice, stuck on. Any task assigned to…

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…

Crap Customer Service!

Whatever happened to good customer service? It seems like a long time ago when people at the store would greet you with a smile. Owing to fact that there used to be a selective few regular stores we visited, people even recognized us. Now there are streets full of stores, all lined up next to…
