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. The fresh green of the new leaves gleaming in the sunlight. Each morning, you try to take in this view and... Continue Reading →

Crossroads in life are all about this. Logic, that is, the head says one thing and your heart says another. There's no doubt that we've all gone through such situations. The answer or decision is comparatively easy at times. At other times, its a real tug of war and we struggle to get out of... Continue Reading →
United we stand!
I love to share my thoughts here but when it comes to current hot topics, I mostly refrain from writing about such topics that somehow become controversial and stir up the hornet's nest! The fact being, I realize that I neither have the enthusiasm to defend my stance nor feel the necessity for it. However, in... Continue Reading →

I is for Inspire
One of the dictionary meanings: fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. I've read about great people and have been wowed by their work, dedication and achievements! I have often wondered what is it that inspired them to do what they did! And how they...

The parenting jig!!
This Mother's day I'm in a rather introspective mood. The thoughts are abuzz since a few days.. and I was wondering if I should write about this at all or not. In the early years of motherhood I've been very short tempered, easily venting out my frustrations. This was due to so many things going on... Continue Reading →
Nostalgic!! A trip down memory lane…
As small children, me and sis1 would fight over who would sleep with you. It felt wonderfully soft and cozy and cuddly.. we just loved to sleep with you. You would walk with me to school and back.. I do not remember this vividly but I know it to be an important part of my... 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!!

Looking back.. looking ahead!
This year was one of tremendous changes .. of being thrown.. or rather, of being flung out of my comfort zones in more ways than one.. The first half was filled with certain anxieties and a feeling of a need for change that was very compelling!! I had made peace with the anxieties and come... Continue Reading →
In our growing up years... though we love our parents ... and are grateful for a whole lot of things.. there are few things about them which we dislike and hope that we never do the same or behave in a similar manner ever!! But, now that I'm this old.. I'm realizing that we eventually... Continue Reading →
Of dreams and wishes fulfilled!
I am not one for resolutions and such.. the bullet list that is.. However, 2012 was different... maybe inspired by some of the blogs that I'd read. I decided to adopt a theme... and it was 'being a more mindful person' which was in keeping with my journey of 'growth'. Not very sure how mindfulness... Continue Reading →
Just like that!!
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...
