Happy Bandh anyone ?

A holiday was declared due to the nation wide bandh on Wednesday... I am reading the newspaper while having my cuppa. Adi wakes up and comes to me... climbs onto my lap.

Wondering if he understood, by the look on his face, she tries to confirm ' Did you understand properly?' Adi: 'Yes. From now on I will be very careful with... Continue Reading →

One sure fire way to feel alive is to stretch! Yes.. literally!! Stretch yourself... either physically or mentally and you'll feel the difference!! Yesterday, I attended a conference for Software testers, the first conference that I attended in all these years of professional life. I'd been dilly dallying till the nth moment as I'm not...

Tiny tidbits!

I am wondering whether I should continue to call these posts 'Tiny tidbits'. You were really tiny when I started writing you seem to be all grown up at times. But then again, your words come to mind and make me smile 🙂 You say ' I'm still a baby ma! and you are... Continue Reading →
