Whom do you love the most?

March 17, 2016

22

Memories of mom – physical and emotional resurface every now and then. Precisely for this reason, I did not look at pictures of her, especially from the times she was sick. One of the major regrets I have is not taking more pictures with her when she was well. We barely have pictures of her […]

Home is where…

January 14, 2016

3

The husband and I took a road trip from Toronto to Coralville, Iowa to spend Christmas with our favourite aunt. The drive was very uneventful, yet romantic. We listened to podcasts and our favourite music. Our holiday found us rottenly pampered – our aunt made our favourite food and we ate dessert for every meal. We […]

How I Turned Around A Crappy Day

November 24, 2013

5

Originally this post is supposed to see me bullet-ize my whole day. I love bullet points, but I also feel like I need a reason to bullet-ize! I have been having some interpersonal issues with a couple of people since a few days. It got to a point where even an innocuous text message from […]

5 Ways to Win My Heart

November 21, 2013

My blog has been post-less for four months. I wasn’t feelin’ it. My regular readers were beginning to get concerned. Heck, I was beginning to get a little concerned. So my friend Anju sent me a 30-day challenge. I am gonna do it! So here’s day one. 1. Be kind to the invisible people: This […]

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 […]

I Am The Real Housewife of Chicago

January 23, 2013

11

I am a housewife all right. But I am not the van-driving soccer mom nor do I look like Snooki or feature on a trashy reality show that everyone secretly watches. I have no children, no suburban home with a yard and white picket fence nor do I have a yacht and a husband with […]

The Husband’s Side of the Story

December 2, 2012

The male readers of my blog have been telling me that I am always making fun of my husband. So here goes. I am out to prove that I am capable of making fun of myself. Step 1 to reading this post is to watch the video below. This is my husband’s version of the […]

The Grass is Greener on My Side

March 27, 2012

This is a post about gratitude. In the last few days, I have spoken to a few close friends about this at great length. The basic premise is that there is no horrible situation that you and I can be in that does not have a positive side. Or more simply, “It could have been […]

Had a Bit of Mom Today

August 11, 2011

This post was originally written on April 14th 2011, while I was living in Ann Arbor, MI. Never posted it. But today I can. So here. _________________________________________ It’s been so long since I lost mom to Alzheimer’s. I was very young. I barely have any happy memories of her, with her, about her. But she […]

Confessions of a New Housewife

March 15, 2011

35

They still are like foreign agents to my lips – the words – wife, husband, married; the less said the better about my new found identity as a HOUSEWIFE. It hit me when I was filling in the immigration form just before landing in America. “Occupation” demanded the cruel white sheet. Somewhat belligerently, I wrote […]

The Home Coming

December 9, 2010

I’d come home for I lost Another battle on the turf of life, I’d left with pride, with dreams, with hope, I was back – cowed – beaten – I couldn’t cope.   I sat by the window – alone and unmoving, Watching the world progress and pass me by, I heard, but didn’t heed, […]

Things I Don’t Want To Do!

July 10, 2010

14

Recently, I have come across those about to turn 30 (in the case of the male sex, 35) and who have all these to-do lists about the things they’d like to do before they’re 30 or 35, or whatever their magic age, before which they have to feel accomplished. And there are some who’re more […]

Fruits From Childhood

July 6, 2010

11

Moving to Besant Nagar has probably been the best thing that happened to me. It has put me in touch with myself. I guess part of it is because I am forced to live alone most of the times and introspect on the smallest experience that I have. About two weeks ago, I walked into […]

Bumming About Besant Nagar…

July 2, 2010

Most people have images in their minds…of the different ideals…from may be the house they want to live in to the kind of job that they would like to do and to the kind of money that they would like to be paid. And most people think that these will buy them happiness. When I […]
