The moments I had seen before…

“Shashi” has a new dimple

Something about him conveyed class and goodness, and he was the kind of man that a girl could introduce her dad to and he wouldn’t object to your seeing him. His handsome face had “decency” written all over it… He was and remains my favourite Kapoor. I never […]


A reunion that almost didn’t happen !

Nearly six months back Bhagya asked all of us if we had time to get together for a reunion in June 2017 as she was coming over from the US for a family wedding. I was the first one to say yes, little knowing what was in store […]


A special birthday at Vizag…

May 15, 1990… I went to work early as always. I was not sure if VG could call me today as all the phone lines were down. He had spoken to me yesterday and I was very upset because he couldn’t come over to Vizag to celebrate his […]


The Mango boys are back!

We met them first in 2013 when we were in Bangalore and since then, they have become fast friends of ours. Every year when the Mango season begins, and they setup their stall, I get a call from them asking me when we are coming over. Read about them […]


The forever “Sensei”

When he walked into the plane, Krishnan immediately recognised him and they waved at each other. Then I waved at him and told Krishnan – “what an amazing presence he has!!”. There were so many people in front of him, and he was quietly standing at the back, […]


Keep love fresh !

The thought for the day I had and posted was as follows …   The reason for it is because today is 27 years since Krishnan and I met across a table during a training program in Chennai … I have spoken about how it was love at […]


Chennai walks – a dying “profession”

Today morning Amma and I went for a walk after many days. All of us have been having the seasonal viral fever and the never ending cough so the walks had come to a full stop. The cough is a funny thing – its there many days after […]


Thank You, Nair

The first time I met him was at a MILT alumni meeting where he was responsible for dinner and he was wearing a lungi with a towel tied off on his head. It was the first time I ate curd rice with black grapes …. and the rest […]


Three Mothers …

No, don’t be surprised with the title – my dad didn’t marry three women. But all three women who are mothers to me are related to him. 🙂 My mother is the youngest daughter in her family and was not “trained” like her older sisters to take care […]


The bald, witty, democratic “Tughlaq” no more!

His mentee Jayalalitha passed away yesterday and even before people could pour Earth over her coffin and the Earth settled, her mentor too passed away! I knew about Cho always because my dad was a huge fan. The only magazine that he would buy was “Tughlaq”. Dad accepted […]
