Tribute to My loving cousin!!

That lonely night in Tokyo is something thats not easy to get over , I couldn’t sleep even for a second , I tried everything watching sitcoms, listening to music, counting sheep, reading book ,messaging friends, facebook , nothing, I cant even shut my eyes for a minute! Nothing is worse than looking at the…

Striking Parallelism : Vedic Stories Vs Modern Science

I confidently finished my last blog saying  (What are the qualifications to be a Hindu God….?) , Let me deep dive to understand better – Insane I would say. The word “Deep dive was written without the clue of the subject depth. As a blogger, I have the liberty to choose any topic and rant…

Boomerang: what goes around comes around

“Why me? What did I do to deserve this?” I bet this question crosses everyone’s mind at least once in lifetime. Life is biased… Many of us have thought about this. Haven’t we?  Real Life is like a sinusoidal wave with ups and downs. Some of us face rigorous stress tests and some lead a nonchalant happy life…

Home Sapiens 2.0 – Biological or Technological evolution ?

I bet everyone starts their day with a good morning message in some random wats app group or be it any social media they are part of ! Today I happened to see an interesting early morning forward message where a research group had predicted human evolution in 2100. They went one step ahead and…

Our Roots Our First Identity!!!!

Summer, this year, is mercilessly throwing the heatwaves at us never than ever before ( Do we say this every year ?). But this year, with Road expansion and Metro construction, we lost a whole bunch of age old trees. As a result we are suffering and complaining about Global warming. Seriously, Mind and Body…

A Journey through Jigsaw Puzzles

Long sleepless flight journeys could be tiring,  but the best part is I enjoy the undisturbed movie marathon. Sometimes random search leads to some really good movies that are not very popular. This time it was a serendipity movie “puzzle”-  a very simple slow paced story about an unappreciated house wife and a smart inventor who connect…

What are the qualifications to be a Hindu God….?

Has anybody else thought why Hindu Gods are very rich, always decked up with expensive precious stones , Gold and silk clothing’s? So, what does it take to be a God – pleasing personality, Be extremely rich and should have a “Vahana- vehicle”? Even an elephant God travels in a mouse!! My disclaimer for this…

Let them Rest in Peace

Penning down after many days ! Not because I didnt have anything to write but just nothing really moved me so much than today’s incident (or rather it’s aftermath). The demise of the political leader Mr.Karunanidhi , at the age of 94. Death becomes more understandable and acceptable when it occurs at the age of…

Am I proud to be an Indian?

If some one asks me this I don’t have a single answer , my response will change based on time and context! I am sure by now there will be at-least a few patriotic, fuming Indians calling me “ traitor “ or there could already be a set of officials checking my background based on…

A friend indeed?? 

That night I could not sleep, filled with guilt, anger and irritated by my own behavior. From dawn to dusk I was completely occupied by repeated thoughts, “How can I be so stupid and careless? Why did I do that? How am I going to be without her? ” with all mixed emotions, I finally…

Modern Civilization:Redefined

“ARE U CIVILIZED?” What does this mean when someone throws it on you? Does it mean “Are you educated? Don’t you have manners? Are you rich?” And I can keep adding questions here based on convenience. The meaning of the term civilization has changed several times during different periods in history, and even today it is used…

Relationship or battleship? 

It started with a heated discussion on the dinner table with my colleagues! Well, last week I went on an official trip to Bahrain, exorbitant country, with white desert sand everywhere. But skyline and broad roads don’t attract me anymore! Not a single greenery to admire! And it is one heck of a party town!…

Just not another book ! 

With tears in my eyes and heavy heart I finished this book “When Breath becomes Air” by Late Dr. Paul Kalanithi! Generally people read books for pleasure, time pass, information, but this book tells us how life can be uncertain and unpredictable. It is sort of an Autobiography of a well-educated highly proficient doctor whose…

Culture exchange !! 

It’s a beautiful day! It’s absolutely lovely to see people wearing ethnic clothes! Festive mood is permeating! Even though work is keeping us busy, these kind of small changes, brings joy and peace in our lives! Diwali (or Deepavali) in India is always special! Thronging crowds shopping for the entire family, decked up houses with…

Novel Thoughts

I just finished a book – The Girl on the Train by British Novelist Paula Hawkins – supposed to be New York Times best seller. I am not a voracious reader, but once I start the book, I find it difficult to put it back until I finish. Well, I did enjoy the book. It…

Lesson from Cacti!! 

Well, a saying from my mom and my friend – don’t have cacti at home. It’s not good to have one! Logic Behind – life will be dry as that of a desert plant! If this is the real reason shouldn’t we be appreciating a cactus fighting to grow in a desert where there is…

Life is Mechanical ?

Mechanical!!!– We use this term very loosely in our daily lives. I wonder who coined this word? What does that even literally mean? Agreed- wake up, workout, cook , off to work, get back home, continue work, fix dinner, eat and sleep and the cycle repeats – is this what is called Mechanical – boredom…

Coffee & More……

My day starts with a nice cup of coffee with my bestie and lots of chit chat! “kaappi” (coffee) is an integral part of Tamil culture, it’s in fact a welcome drink to anyone who stops by home! Be it a friend, acquaintance, relatives or anyone! But when I think a few years back, surprisingly…

A fork in the road!!

Oopsie! It’s Tough!! From Day 1 the running race still continues. And I bet there is no end to this, and while on the move I am stuck at the fork million times!!! There are always multiple options, but it usually comes down to two roads. We have to choose one of those finally! Even…
