Love for me is, when my husband backs the car so that we both can wave each other bye. (You can see his hand in the pic. Apologies for the picture quality, had to zoom in) This is a sort of a morning ritual at our home. No matter how late he is for work, he never forgets to do this. Isn’t this what love … Continue reading 7/52: Love

Its been more than a year since I blogged. Well, this past year saw me getting married and more to US with my Hubster. It also saw me struggling to settle down in a new town with zero friends or acquaintances. Then came the dreaded winter for which North East Coast is (in)famous for. But, more dreadful than winter was and is the distance between … Continue reading Distance between Bangalore and Cleveland
“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots, the other is wings,” said Hodding Carter, an American journalist and surely, truer words were never spoken. However, how many of us can actually do this? The typical Indian scenario is that parents never let go of their children. In the Indian cultural context, how can parents learn to let go and help … Continue reading time to let go
I grew up in a household which was as unconventional as possible. Usually in South India, when a girl hits menarche there is a ceremony to commemorate that (i know, horrors of horror!!).

So coming to my home and the time when I had my menarche… there was not a single fuss created apart from the fact … Continue reading what time is it?

I never entered the dialysis … Continue reading guilt

The only classes of people who seem to enjoy weddings are the aunties. I can count the number of weddings I have attended till date. The … Continue reading wedding through my eyes
