Meaning of Life


China, Travel

As I write this on a lazy Sunday evening, the skies are exploding in a riot of colors. Fireworks in the night. On a clear blue carpet. Lights to sparkle. Truly life can’t be better? Sadly, it ain’t so for me. I had the most awful cold the past week – still have. I think […]

Joie De Vivre


China

I really can’t believe it. Is it already Wednesday? Two more days to go and then the weekend is here. I really feel sometimes that the world is suddenly on a 12-hour day and not 24 hours. Especially when I have days like today when after a restless night I wake up to a nasty […]

Badminton


China

Just had to dedicate today’s post to that – Badminton. After almost a decade, I picked up a racquet and for the first time stepped on to a badminton court to play for an hour. Oh! What delicious tiredness it is that creeps into your body after doing exercise that you love!! I woke up […]

Wind Wednesday


China, Travel

Last night howled its way with a shriek. It caught me unawares. Doors banged. Windows creaked in their hinges. Strange sounds erupted in the darkness. It seemed a strange epilogue to a day where my mind howled its own demands. 2PM – blazing sun. 34 degrees Celsius. Cycling in its heat, my mind a mass […]

Moody Mondays


China

What is it about Mondays I wonder? It’s a universal syndrome beyond redemption. Mondays just don’t spell right. Today, my Monday was a holiday. It started off with irritation with me reading Jerk’s post to Ranjana Malhotra and that creepy crawly feeling that I get when this lumbering turd looms in any way in my […]

Flowers and Bees


China

Do you ever get this feeling at the end of a full day that you just have done nothing at all and you have no words to write at all? Yet that day would be so full of things to do and surprises to be had like ice creams by the cone. Today was one […]

Terra Incognito


China

“Terra Incognito.” Unknown terrain. That phrase stuck in my mind ever since I heard it first on this mindblowingly fascinating BBC television series -Planet Earth. This is one of those DVDs that must adorn every home on earth. I wish relentless poachers around the world who scavenge an animal for its fur, tusks or worse […]

Crude Rude


China

Bizarre day today. A dark cloud of lightning sparking in my mind. It all started with and ended with nothing. After all the rush of words yesterday, today is a blank page. Another one of those days that pass by in meaningless chatter of the crude rude. Aye, that is my new phrase. To define […]

Ode to Monumental Ignorance and Stupidity


China

Yes. I am frustrated. And strangely enough, not with myself. This is my ode to someone who believes in ruining a life that is easily led in a disturbing chaos of un-mindedness. People lie their thoughtsThrough oases of ignoranceCloak their armorIn shrouds of defenses If love is to understandThen fatal it is to be trueFollies […]

End of the sea


China

Sad to begin a post on such a morose note. But today is the last day of the bliss of Sanya. Perhaps, I shouldn’t use the word bliss. The last two days of sea and sun and rain have been bliss. But what hasn’t been bliss is the feeling of being let down. Now that […]
