A book about love and life. An interesting weave of The past and the present. No individual or situation is portrayed negatively. It is amazing how the author has managed to weave the Sufi way of life into a modern City consumeristic life. The Sufi faith and songs are quite popular in India too and… Continue reading Elif Shafaq – 40 Rules of Love
For years now, 5 to be precise, my over 1000 books have screamed to me to be released. I was helpless had no home for them. I chose to ignore. But time came and I couldn't bear the separation. Luckily for me my husband shares this craze and drove with a great force the reorganising… Continue reading The New Normal – Our remodelled home
I have visited my blog after so long that I had forgotten the look and feel of it. (I was pleasantly surprised to see such a lovely green - it was refreshing.) Being a mom and having your own law firm leaves you very little time to do much else. I have always always written… Continue reading Tolerance intolerance – potato potato
This blog post is unlike any other I have written. I humbly take the risk of sounding like a self help book while I pour out my thoughts on living, daily chores and routines all inextricably connected to parenting.

John McLaughlin, Mandolin Shrinivas, Selva Ganesh and Zakir Hussain appeared on stage (and in that order) to greet an… Continue reading Remember Shakti – An unforgettable night!

I would however like to expand on the title and write an essay on why one should never eat there - ever. Food - The presentation and quality of food were both abysmal. It was a buffet with no… Continue reading Yellow Chilli – An indicator of the state of your liver after dining there

If the plot were that Sid found his passion, and after tasting success there, he returns to his father's world to help sustain or grow… Continue reading A Generation of Insensitivity
After a very long time in my life, I saw 3 movies in the same week and on three consecutive days! Paan Singh Tomar Its not an animated film with a "toon-hero". It is based on a real life person, but I am not sure if it can be termed a biographical picture. Paan Singh… Continue reading Movie Marathon
I generally believe that writing should be positive. However, on this subject I do not have too many positive thoughts. Being at home now, I have had the requirement to be involved in a) what to cook, b) when clothes need to be washed/dried etc. There are several questions to be answered like - what's… Continue reading The tediousness that is housekeeping
