The side effects of Blogging!

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 →

Its that time of the year again!!

It's been a pleasure driving these past couple of weeks! This despite the rise in temperatures and the chaotic Bengaluru traffic.

Seeing the beaming faces of the kids when they return from the morning walk! They are tired , exhausted due to the heat and sweat but the excitement shines through!!

They get so engrossed in their favorite activity... taking in all that they can and giving it... Continue Reading →
