My everyday thoughts, opinions and whatever else !

Sonia Gandhi – Grace in a puddle of Saliva

There she was, in a beautiful sari as always, not a hair out of place and everywhere around her were fawning media people with enough saliva dripping down their mouths to create a unified sticky puddle. Whatever else you throw at Sonia Gandhi, she is a picture of […]


PenPals… No Blog-pals

All through my growing up years, I thought I should have a penpal. A “penpal” was someone who lived in a different country or a very far off place in your own country and you become friends by writing letters to each other. Penpals met sometimes but mostly […]


Jumping with joy !!

Today we received the much awaited 80G exemption for ShikshaDaan. It helps us raise more resources and thereby impact even more beneficiaries positively. Phew ! It has been a tough two years because we met so many deserving scholars as we travelled across India, but we were unable […]


A journey left midway …

Today morning KTV was showing the movie “Johnny”. Its a Tamil movie made in 1980 starring Rajinikanth in a double act and Sridevi, as the actress. The storyline is interesting and simple – Sridevi is a popular singer, and Johnny (Rajinikanth) is her ardent fan. Rajinikanth as Johnny is a […]


Your pooch, your poop !

Today we were supposed to be in Murthal early in the morning, having parathas with Anupam, Dhruv, Geojo and Nitin but the plan fell through as Anupam wasn’t well. So we used the time to go for our walk. The daybreak was almost half hour away and there […]


Where there is love ….

On Sunday we watched this movie “The Vow” starring Channing Tatum and Rachel Adams. The story is about a couple who are madly in love, get married and within a few weeks are involved in a serious auto accident that leaves the wife in a coma. When the […]


The Soldier and The Politician

Today while browsing FB, I saw this post from my friend Neeti. Its a letter from Malvika Lamba, an army wife and it brings out the stark difference between the world of a soldier and that of a politician. It reminded me of something that happened earlier. A […]


Padmasini… like Grandmother, like Granddaughter

On the 20th of this month, it was twenty years since my Periyamma passed away. When Kokka posted that on the family group chat, it brought back several memories of her…. Infact my very first blog ever was a dedication to her – The First day – Meeting inspiration. Padmasini […]


Remembering CEC Seshan

Happy National Voters’ Day. Today, I was remembering the man who reminded the entire nation that we have a Election Commission of India with a Chief Election Commissioner …. Mr. T. N. Seshan. A maverick who changed the Indian Election scene forever. Some people are truly rare and […]


Missing Rahul …

…. Dravid not Gandhi. I stay away from watching Cricket nowadays because it irritates me to watch talented young players playing without application. I know every cricketing pundit will come out and lynch me with their technical analysis, but am speaking as an observer and a student of […]
