Rising Above ‘Log Kya Kahenge’

We are turning 4 very soon. Yes! A 1000 likes on my Facebook page. It took me three and a half years to procure a 1000 likes. And almost an equal quantum of time to acquire a lot more than just financial freedom. Honestly, finances weren’t even the last thing on my mind when I …

Happily Quarantined – the lockdown, the environment, the efforts…

This entire January I had been rigorously reading about COVID-19 on Facebook, Twitter and Wikipedia. At first, it seemed like a new epidemic that was identified in Wuhan, China, a far off place, that even a travel freak like myself would not ever be interested in visiting. A city locked down, thousands quarantined, a deadly …

The Unspoken Accord

There are a handful, who would be with you for whoever you are, not for where you come from, nor what work you do, not for you achievements or the favours you could bestow upon them. These are the souls we seek, ironically these are the ones we fail to recognise. It’s like finding an …

An extract from ‘The Little Boy’

Powerful. (shared from another page) “Once a little boy went to school. One morning The teacher said: “Today we are going to make a picture.” “Good!” thought the little boy.

The Pursuit of Benevolence

It was 17th July 2019, half past two, steaming hot afternoon, in Kolkata. I was stuck in this horrific, terrifying traffic jam at the Park Circus 7 point crossing. The car was air conditioned. Husband and I were fetching daughter from school. We were heading straight to City Centre Mall, for ordering my new pair …

Super 30 is a must watch movie

I have never written a movie review previously, but this one I simply couldn’t resist. Super 30 narrates the real life, super inspiring story of the superman and genius mathematician, Anand Kumar. Young Anand is a brilliant student and son of a postman in Patna. He passionately works on solutions of unsolved math equations that …

Being Lonely…‘Main aur meri tanhai’ 😉

Having people all around, sitting on the same table, a spouse sharing the same bed, being used to a regular place and still not belonging there. Synonyms of LONELY according to my thick, red, hard bound Merriam Webster’s Thesaurus are : ‘alone, lone, lonesome, single, solitary, solo, unaccompanied’ Though the thesaurus doesn’t lie, it definitely …

The Art Of Choosing Life

She tried too hard NOT TO BREATHE, to give up on herself, to strangle herself into the arms of Death. While waiting for her soul to depart, she could witness her entire life in a flash, including the greatest love. Her treasured golden voice, that could have vanquished the world. She was about to let …

The Tribe that Doesn’t Fit in!

A month ago, at Club Paraiso, Raipur, breakfast table, I remember this fellow guest, who was also a distant relative, inquisitively enquired, if I were facing an acute financial problem. And Oh my God, she was so concerned that “I WAS TEACHING”…. She said, “Neha, I mean… paise ke liye yeh sab?!!!” I still remember …
