Why do men have to be such jerks? I don’t even know why my husband and I had a row today.. All i know is, I was upset for, like a min; the next thing i know, my husband is upset because he felt I was making fuss over nothing. He then ditches our plans for the evening and just drives back home. Somehow every … Continue reading Rant

Wedding for me is more of a social obligation. I love S. I want to stay with him. But that requires us to be married. So I agreed. But I would like my … Continue reading wedding blues
Ruby I came across this article in Deccan Herald today, that computer is fast replacing canine as man’s best friend. That made me think…We had Ruby for 13 years. She passed on in December 2009. She was a wonderful dog. I loved her to bits. After my dad’s illness if I have cried my heart out in hospitals it’s for her. There was something so … Continue reading Friend indeed?
As I have mentioned in my profile description, I am an HR professional. Before I got into this role, i was all “enthu”ed about it. I did my Master in Industrial Psychology & Organization Behaviour and getting into HR was one of the obvious options. I didn’t want to do my P.hD at that time as I was more than eager to be financially independent. S … Continue reading Occupational Hazard
