Interesting Day !

I should have known when mom got stuck in the elevator in the morning that the day would be interesting !! So Amma’s fear came true today. The elevator she took to go down in the morning, got stuck between the 9th and the 8th floor. She didn’t […]

My best friend

There are some birthdays that I never forget – whether they are on my calendar or not and Geetu’s birthday is one such. I met Geetu at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Happy Valley Shillong in 1980 when both of us were in the 7th standard. I don’t think either one […]

Gangs of Wasseypur

On July 4th, Krishnan and I managed to go for a movie on a weekday after ages !! We watched the 7.30 pm show of Gangs of Wasseypur…. First, the self ticket collecting machine didnt work, then at the ticket counter the guy behind the counter wished the […]

Working on July 4th

Today is the first 4th of July in ten years that I went to work :):) felt very strange. It seems like yesterday when one of my colleagues at Pizza Corner spoke about his wife’s training at GECIS – we listened with fascination as to how she used […]


It really is a small world …. I sent the ISB brochure for 2013-14 that featured a picture of mine to my Happy Valley gang and Adeeti wrote back that she knew Arun from my batch !! Arun and Vidya were neighbours of Adeeti and Abhineet in Singapore […]

My friend has cancer

It is a strange feeling to wake up to the news of a friend battling cancer…. A week back a friend on Facebook had posted the following message and asked his friends to re-post. I read it and chose to be in the 97% that didnt repost saying […]

An Indian Customer

Yesterday I imagined getting many things done … Till I called Vodafone at 8.30 am. I am a loyal Vodafone customer for the past 10 years with the same postpaid number. I had asked for an additional connection for my mom on the 21st and Vodafone sent their […]

Who killed Mahi ?

Little Mahi died because people older and smarter than her left a large hole uncovered !! Mahi’s story has been repeated several times in the past and will be repeated several times in the future. We will rationalise it by saying, her past karma was such, she should […]

Puncture Fest – the survivor ride

Disclaimer right upfront – this blog does not refer to yesterday’s ride, especially Rajesh Tiwary’s teeny weeny puncture filled ride 🙂 but it’s inspired by it. Yesterday five of us from Gurgaon started off on a ride to Sanjay Van. Just near Ghitorni metro station Rajesh Tiwary’s bike […]

Corporate Seasons

In corporate life, just as in your personal life, timing is everything … When you say something, when you do something, when you are aggressive, when you are assertive and when do you showcase an idea !! Most of us do not recognise the right moment and many […]
