Arogya Setu – a Bridge to cross the Corona River!

The Chinese Corona Virus is the most democratic new age virus – it has spread because of the travelling rich and many of the poor non-travelling citizens are paying a heavy price for it, mostly with their lives. Its a strange irony that a democratic virus was produced by a commie autocratic country like China, … Read more Arogya Setu – a Bridge to cross the Corona River!

गरजते बादल बरसते नहीं

We went for a walk early in the morning today and I managed to click some amazing photographs of daybreak and some clouds. Krishnan said I will probably get a clear picture of the Sun as we turned towards the main gate of our condo complex but somehow I felt this colour would be missed … Read more गरजते बादल बरसते नहीं

Lockdown Innovations #1

There was this tweet recently from Anand Mahindra about an auto rickshaw which has been divided into four compartments so that no two passengers sit close to each other and everyone is able to maintain social distancing.

Indian History – distorted and how !!

Last year I saved a tweet from Rakesh Simha that mentioned the number of years different dynasties have ruled in India. Here it is – This is the unfortunate reality … that our children learn just the recent history of India and that too a “Mughal Centric” history. I have no problems with the Mughals, … Read more Indian History – distorted and how !!

Sunset Ramblings :)

Today I captured the Sunset from Amma’s bedroom window and from the balcony. As I took the pictures I was wondering as to how many people still use a camera ?

Lockdown Learnings from THAC – The Health Awareness Centre

The Health Awareness Centre, Mumbai is Dr. Vijaya Venkat’s creation and her instrument to bring a “healthy” change in all our lives. Her daughters run it now and every post of theirs is worth its weight in gold. For me Vijaya Mami, as I called her, was way ahead of her times. The way of … Read more Lockdown Learnings from THAC – The Health Awareness Centre

Lockdown Food #5 – Ribbon Pakoda

#LockdownFood Confession : I like savoury snacks but I don’t like frying anything at home. I don’t let Amma make Poori or any fried snack at all and I never make them myself. After many many YEARS, we made ribbon pakoda at home today. A few days back, my sister-in-law had sent me pictures of … Read more Lockdown Food #5 – Ribbon Pakoda

#LockdownLearnings Hopefully on May 3rd, the Govt may take the decision to slowly ease out the lockdown… its a big “may”.
