Monday musings – D is for didi ! :)

Didi is the Hindi/Bengali/Marathi word for sis. And I guess its the same in many of the other languages spoken in North India. And, didi is what Adi calls Ammu. I'm not sure if I've written about this fact earlier. Its the sweetest thing ever, especially when they're in a good mood, and when playing... Continue Reading →

Book love :)

Yes.. here I am again talking about the kids' love for books and for reading! Isnt that wonderful 🙂 Their love for books has grown by leaps and bounds and it makes us brim with joy when we see them in love and content in the company of books! There's a sense of peace, of fulfillment... Continue Reading →


Keeping it simple for the last letter for this round. And quite apt too.. Zinnias from our little balcony garden. Gifts for us this Christmas and New Year! 🙂 Linking this to the letter Z at ABC Wednesdays.


The thing that I most missed in the year 2015 is vacation! And, vacation to me, as for most people, is closely linked to travel. Somehow, for most part of the year, I did not go on a trip. Neither a family trip nor a team outing! Except for a quick one to KR Nagar,... Continue Reading →

F is for Family!

Fun, Family, Friends, Faith ... the 'F' words that I heart !! Family and faith have been my greatest strengths in life. I cannot stress enough about the importance of a supportive family. One which nourishes you... helps you grow and evolve into yourself.. one which respects and loves you for what you are .. I... Continue Reading →

Life’s pleasant surprises!!

Few years ago, I had written a post about the things that I wanted to do/learn. However, there are a couple of things that I had not listed in there. I was perhaps sure that I would never take it up and hence I'd given them a miss. But wonder of wonders... these also materialized... Continue Reading →

Water! here we come !! :)

Sometimes.. when things happen they seem to happen at just the right time. Makes me look at the big picture and realize the interconnectedness of all the events in our life! I have been wanting to learn swimming.. from like forever. Past couple of years, we've been getting some pamphlets related to swimming camps.. near... Continue Reading →

Diwali 2014

Diwali, this year, was quite low key.. as far as my energy or enthu to do anything was concerned. For some reason I grew very lethargic!! Lazied most of the time during the 4-5 days. Somehow managed to go out and make the necessary purchases... veggies, flowers, fruits, diyas. BIL had bought the crackers.. the... Continue Reading →

There’s so much to write!

So.. here I go again! After a somewhat longish break  🙂 The month of June just zipped past.. - Schools reopened. Getting back into the groove was quite a challenge! Especially with Adi. He wants to play as much as he did during the vacation. And since he has company.. friends younger than him who... Continue Reading →

Tirthahalli trip!

It was a long time since we had taken a proper break and I was itching to go somewhere, away from the bustle and just relax. Just when I was in such a mood, my friend told me about her trip to Tirthahalli. She told me that they stayed in a home stay and had... Continue Reading →

S is for Sunrise!

To be able to view the sunrise from our home is a luxury that I've been blessed with!! Throughout the growing up years I have watched the sunrise or sunset only on our trips to certain places and sometimes at designated spots. However, since moving to our current residence, we've had this privilege right here in... Continue Reading →

Flavour of the Season – Jacaranda!

The Jacaranda blooms around Feb-March and this season I have been noticing these beauties wherever I went 🙂 And I am especially glad to get a beautiful view of these each morning as I start from home. Earlier too, I have seen them bloom in the open property in front of the apartment that we... Continue Reading →


I have gotten used to my regular route and am driving quite comfortably now! With the normal traffic, it takes me just 15- 20 minutes to reach my office!! Feels so good.. so awesome to be in charge and to have the freedom.. to not be dependent on the bus, the mercy of auto wallahs or... Continue Reading →
