The Autobiography of a Book

September 4, 2017

4

In recent times, I have been on a pre-loved books buying spree. It is always so interesting to read what a reader may have highlighted or the notes of love and endearment written as a gift, reward or another momentous event. I am perhaps trying to recreate a simpler time. In another life I was […]

65 things about my mom

May 29, 2016

12

My mom would have turned 65 on May 30th. Sharing my birthday week with her used to be very exciting when I was younger. Now, it’s the worst thing ever. May is a hard month. My parents wedding anniversary was May 18th and then her birthday, followed by mine. I just feel blue and pissy. Over […]

Conversations with a 96-year old

May 17, 2016

The first day I met Jay, he asked me, “Guess how old I am!” I said, “85”. “No, I am 95,” he said proudly. He turned 96 this past December. He does everything himself, without assistance. He bathes, eats, uses the washroom by himself. He walks independently with the help of a cane. He is proud […]

On Katy Perry, Brain Tumors, Autism and Inspiration

November 27, 2013

I am editing this post that I wrote on November 26th because I have received some very inspiring information from one of my readers. The post is technically supposed to be about “my views on mainstream music”. But the problem is I don’t know what that means. I was very much into music during the 1990s. […]

My Husband’s (Other) Valentine

February 15, 2013

38

Sid and I don’t really celebrate this day. He teases me about getting me flowers or surprising me with jewelry. But he wouldn’t dare! So this Valentine’s Day, being a Thursday, was treated as any other Thursday. Since my husband is a consultant, he travels Monday to Thursday; so on Thursdays, we usually go out […]

The Boy Who Loves Me

November 18, 2010

For those who know me, it will not be a surprise. I don’t like my name. EKTA. That is one of the reasons I chose to write under a different name. I live on the 2nd floor and he lives on the ground floor. The place where I park my scooter faces the back door […]
