My Green Companion #ThursdayTreeLove

Advent of Fall.jpg

This is the greener avatar of the snow cradling tree, the picture of which I posted last Thursday. This was the tree outside my patio where I used to watch American sized squirrels, the size equivalent to a mongoose.


I am joining Parul Thakur, this week, with her post for the hashtag #ThursdayTreeLove

Please feel free to join us with your own photograph of a tree (or trees). It could be just the photo or you may write a few lines about it. 

Book Review – Oh! My Name

What is that one thing about us which others use more than we do?

It’s our name.

Have we ever given a thought to the stories which went behind naming us? As for me, I know my mother’s story and her bit of a struggle to get me the name I am widely known as. I have also written a post about my Name Theory. In case you feel the intrigue as to what is a Name Theory, you are more than welcome to read this post here. I can assure you will have a good laugh.

Okay. I know. That was some self-promotion.

Coming back to the stories behind the names, Dhruv got his name after the comic character Super Commando Continue reading

Linguistic Pursuits #MondayMusings

Cars!

Linguistic Pursuits 2

Cars are the most wonderful creation man has made. It takes a keen eye to appreciate the beauty of cars and the differences in key features of different cars. 

You might be thinking what am I writing. Clearly the above lines are not about me. There is something else which is about me and that is interest in languages. Apart from the two languages, Hindi and English, which I know how to read and write, I can lend my signature in Assamese as well, the language I studied from 1st Std to 3rd Std.  Continue reading

Does watching a bare tree intrigue you?

Does it make you contemplate of how long it has been there in the same place watching over the world changing around it? How much it must have seen and what all?

Does it make you wonder whether it is lonely or in solitude?

Does it give a sense of spookiness about the place?


In the month of January, we went on a weekend trip to Chikmagalur. This photo was clicked on our visit to Hirekolale Lake.

I am joining Parul Thakur, this week, with her Wordless Wednesday post for the theme ‘Love of Trees’. 

Please feel free to join her with your own photograph of a tree (or trees). It could be just the photo or you may write a few lines about it. 

Dealing with someone’s anger #MondayMusings

Imagine!

A person is yelling at you for reasons you cannot understand or may be you do. That person is rejecting you with every sharp word that comes out of her mouth. What would you do in such a situation? Talk back, yell back or leave the place?

If you ask me, I will tell you it depends. If the person yelling and rejecting are my parents, I might talk back. If that person is my mother-in-law, I will leave the place.  However, on scrutinizing both the scenarios, one may realize that they aren’t helpful in minimizing the ill-effects of anger on account of both the parties.  Continue reading

5 lessons I learnt as a mother #MondayMommyMoments

Learning continues for as long we live, whether we acknowledge it or not. And, when you are a mom, your children become the instrumental factor which ensures you get transformed into a completely new and improved version of yourself.

While I was a child, I used to wonder if my mother had some sort of superpowers or if she knew magic because everytime she could smell and unearth our, me and my brother’s, mischiefs. When Dhruv was born, I contemplated Continue reading
