Of New Years – Memories From 2015


India, Musings, Travel

The last few days of this year. A year that has been a shard of revolving dust, a whirlwind of chaos and mindless energy. As the year winds down, I can’t but think of the things that made me happy through the year. It’s difficult to do so. Our mind has a tendency to shut […]

Reflections from Vagator


India, Musings, Travel

I think there is something to settings that makes you write. It’s not enough to write, you should go where the muse calls you. Maybe VS Naipaul would not have been able to compile his award-winning novels if he was told to sit in the middle of MG Road or Sarjapur Road, right near the […]

Everyday, Musings, Random Thoughts

Tomorrow is the  TCS World 10k marathon. Many years ago, I started my love for running with the then Sunfeast marathon. I took the easy 5K or rather I think it was called the Open 5k. I had hardly prepared and I didn’t know what a good time was. I was determined though to never […]

Black and White


Everyday, Happenings, Musings

Watching the furor over the Salman Khan verdict, I couldn’t help but be bemused. This was a film star I grew up adoring. The one who brought biceps to the big screen. There are discussions all over the Internet. Was he in the right? Was he in the wrong? And if he was wrong, surely, […]

The Mute and Bowring


Everyday, Musings

Looking down the far edge of the wall, there she was. At the same place as she always had been. She had this one place that she occupied, hugging the walls of Bowring Curzon hospital.  In front, several fast food restaurants. And the hub and throng of Shivajinagar’s people as they moved through its narrow […]

Musings

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I last posted on this blog. This was meant to be my little place out in the world. I can’t believe how much that little world inside me has changed. It has shrunk and I can barely see out of it.I watched two movies today. “The […]

Time


Musings

The last post on this blog was in September 2012. It’s now 2013. I can’t believe that it’s been already three months into this year. It’s a year that has begun on a weird, and rather unfathomable note, like my ol’ friend, Boy, would say. I am here – trying to think of all that […]
