Quarantine incognito – Secret Goals Achieved

I very clearly remember, as if it were yesterday, hiding behind the pale yellow striped wooden door of my aunt’s balcony, holding a small silver scissor (that is still there at my mum’s place) trying to snip my own fringes. Being a hairdresser was a secret childhood obsession. I was always caught. Well mostly! Seems …

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 …

Fidgety uncle on the flight and random thoughts

It is 11th October 2019.

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 …

Strangers with Memories

In this distant world I often wonder, how much time does one take to know a person. A lifetime or just a moment.People who I think I know 🙂While some are so called friends,Others are mere strangers with memories….Memories that are enchanting, engaging and so spellbinding that just about entangles with sensibility.

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 …
