Right Here. Right Now. Open Mic – LETS TALK LIFE!

I was getting late (as usual) although all things had been taken care of at home. What the heck! I was going out for an Open Mic after a very long time. Reached the venue just in time. And, was I glad that I made it! Before I delve any further about the programme I attended and performed in, I need to tell you this: Let’s Talk Life is a platform for people who wish to share their darkest secrets, display the talents they didn’t know existed or just plain spend an evening with like-minded, creative people. Not all perform. … Continue reading Right Here. Right Now. Open Mic – LETS TALK LIFE!

Through Thick And Thin….

Firstly, a very happy New Year to you dear friends. Rather later in the day you might say? Well, as they rightfully proclaim, ‘Man proposes and God disposes.’ I had plans for the 2013 year-end like any other person wanting to end the year on high hopes, waiting wishes and longing love and laughter. And although I may have not had a 100% fulfilling 2013 I did want to reflect, re-design and rejuvenate resolutions for the New Year 2014. But, it was not to be. My husband awoke to very high fever and terrible bone pain one morning. He was … Continue reading Through Thick And Thin….

What are your reasons to Pray? Tell me!

From time immemorial prayer has been that invisible link that humans create with God. Naturally, this applies to believers and not to atheists although non believers in their own unique way unknowingly create a connection with the Power Above using science or logic. Prayer, to me has always been part and parcel of my daily living. Call it a blessing that parents bestow upon their children by inculcating within them the desire to pray or an inborn trait that past lives bring to a mortal’s psyche. As far as I remember, I was never forced into praying. Rituals and traditions … Continue reading What are your reasons to Pray? Tell me!

Beaten By Bhagath! – A Tale of Two Writers: A BOOK REVIEW

“How does a failed debut – whether a first movie or a first album or a first book feel? Believe me, it is as traumatic a feeling as when your first –born is consigned to the incubator and brought out only to be taken to a final resting place.”
“Well-wishers often laud our attempts just to keep us in good humour. This harms rather than helps us in our quest for success.”
“….here’s not much difference between a fiction novel and underwear, in terms of market price….Isn’t a fiction book about the same retail price as a pair of briefs or banian?” Continue reading Beaten By Bhagath! – A Tale of Two Writers: A BOOK REVIEW

Changing Times – Hear the Voice of Your Soul!

Time to Change:  I never ever thought in my wildest of dreams that my pre- teen son would one day tell me that the time I had lived in my teens was ‘ancient period’ (he was actually brushing up on his history portions that time!). I was shocked to say the least because I had not realized that a lot of water had flown under the bridge since then. I had definitely added years to my life but my enthusiasm, zest for life was the same. Okay! maybe, I had slackened a wee bit in my physical movements (I used to … Continue reading Changing Times – Hear the Voice of Your Soul!
