Of Brothers and Sisters

Hey you, I thought, for not a very long time, what to gift you. Everything material seemed too immaterial. So I turned to something I can do a decent job of. So here goes… Our story, unlike most brothers and sisters didn’t begin by birth. It began roughly 5 years ago, give or take. To…

Kenya – The Beautiful

To describe Africa as beautiful might just be a bit of an understatement. If you have grown up watching David Attenborough’s Africa you would know what I mean. Africa has varied climate in all extremes, which calls for vast mesmerising, and more often than not, strenuous landscapes. Be it the Kalahari and Sahara deserts where…

“Nope!” Says a Sloth

Note to SELF and all those who don't want to believe in this (you don't have to, thoughts are my own) – Reach out and kill the Sloth residing within. "Nope" says SELF! The objective is not to reduce weight and look a certain way – its hardly possible to do that without torturing yourself….

A State of Mind

Thomas More’s book states Utopia as an ideal society. We all know that the even the entomology of the very Greek word means “no place.” As much as we would like to believe otherwise, there is no ideal society. In a world with Brexit, a president who wants to build all kinds of walls, financial…

3 Zero and Happy Faces

We celebrate milestones. The first Teen Year. The last Teen Year. The 25. The 30. The big 40. And these are followed by customary questions, each time, every time, the best one being – how does it feel? To me it feels outstandingly amazing. Before you turn 30 you get prepped by your loved ones,…

Unconditional Hope 

‘Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky..’ Ever pondered on the layered life lessons of nursery rhymes? They were telling right from the start things like – “shine like a star” and “the sky is the limit.” My interpretation the sky is a limitless canvas for you imagination and dreams. …

The Bali Blues and Greens!

First things first, if you are a first time traveler to Bali like I was, you will have a hard time planning the trip. That’s because there is too much ground to cover and unless you have a good 7 – 10 days, you won’t be able to cover all of it. So start with…

Please Watch: Before The Flood

I am no film critic, let alone a documentary critic. This is not a movie review. This is me, in my own little way trying to encourage as many people as I can to watch this movie and take action; if not for yourselves then at least for the generations to come. I have always adored…

Modern Day Gladiators!

The other day I was watching Spartacus on TV and wondered if we have changed much since the gladiators of the Roman Empire. Don’t get me wrong and no I haven’t gone mad – I know we have. From a rider on horseback as a messenger to Snapchat – we have traveled quite far. The Orbit…

Of You and I – and Marriage

This is the story of You and I and here is how it will be recorded in history! You and I were living in their own world of chaos, madness and frolic, oblivious of each others existence for more than 25 years of their lives. A version of cupid who knew You and I separately…
