An idyllic haven… #ThursdayTreeLove

We all got more regular with the classes, practised better and we were generally gearing up towards the big day. And boom! The lockdown meant us having to miss our dance... Continue Reading →

Pink berries! #ThursdayTreeLove

Strictly speaking, this is a shrub, not a tree. I spotted this bush with pretty pink berries, in a resort we'd been to for a team outing, a couple of years ago. The whole day had been spent in various team building activities... I'd also managed to click a few pictures of the ambience and of... Continue Reading →

Looking Vs Seeing ! #ThursdayTreeLove

Wisdom inspired by plants/trees... You walk towards the kitchen in the morning and what first catches your eye is the branches of a tree against the sky, seen straight ahead through the kitchen window.

Not good enough? #MondayMusings

A little girl child of about 6-7 years. She happily comes home from school only to find the door locked. She patiently waits for her father to come home, diligently finishes off her homework and studying for the day while waiting for him. She keeps herself occupied in a dignified manner without disturbing anyone else... Continue Reading →

Saturdays are all about dance..mostly 🙂 A lot of things have changed over the years but thankfully my love for dance has not diminished.
