The Word Of 2019: Busy


Everyday

The other day, the Dog Mamma was asking me about my word for 2020. I misread her message and thought she was asking me about 2019. “Busy. That’s my word,” I said. “Ya. I want to be busy, too,” she replied. I was horrified. That’s not what I meant. Not at all.  Busy was the […]

Where’s The Faith? Walking The Camino


Everyday

It’s a walk of faith, I tell myself. I would walk 800-km from France to Spain to find faith. A walk to dispel my inner cynicism and believe in the essential goodness of humanity. That walk is the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrim trail that starts in different places in Europe, culminating in the […]

Say Hi To The Star Whisperer


Everyday

About 29 days ago, I promised my friend I would write a novel. I didn’t think I would meet that promise. I told all of you that I would write 75,774 words. I didn’t think I could. Yet, here I am. Bleary-eyed. Utterly drained. Exhausted. Enervated. Yet…after 29 days of frenetic writing, the ‘The Star […]

The Best Reads Of December 2018


Everyday

The last month of 2018 went by in a rush as did the whole of the year. Well, who cares about 2018? The Gregorian calendar! Despite having the Chinese New Year, and our own Indian celebrations of a new year, we follow this old Gregorian calendar. Greg who? Anyway, it doesn’t matter. Shouldn’t matter. Because […]

The Best Reads Of November 2018


Everyday

A writer, they say, writes for an audience. We are supposed to be intrinsically vain. We are doomed if we have no audience. In today’s world, that audience has expanded to having a social media ‘following.’ Can you imagine how many more plays Shakespeare would have written if he had an audience on Instagram? Imagine […]

What I Read In October 2018


Everyday

It’s that time of the year when you see ‘Top 10’ or ‘Top 100’ lists everywhere. I usually like these lists. I know. I know. I don’t sound like someone who likes listicles – but hey, I am a content manager, after all. How can I not love lists? It’s incredible, though, that this year […]

What I Read In September


Everyday

Isn’t time just rolling its merry wand by? It’s hard to believe that in two months we will see the end of yet another year. Where would 2019 take us? Would this world that seems so chaotic this year finally settle into a beautiful eternal colored sky of peace? If I could describe my reading […]

What I Read In August


Everyday

I read a lot more in August and I am surprised I did. When people ask me, “How do you read so much? Where do you find the time?” I am always puzzled. How does one “find” time? Time doesn’t exist. We all have these many hours to fill every day. What we do with […]

What I Read In July


Everyday

As expected, I didn’t read as many books in July. Well, I know that 10 might be a great number to many, and I am so grateful that I was able to read as many, but there were too many things that led me to be distracted in a good, generous, happy way, and I […]
