Everything Is Going To Be Okay. No.


Musings

I had an interesting conversation with my friend on Skype. Now, I don’t message much on any messaging platform. I hate hate hate messaging on the phone. The only time I can actually message is if I have my laptop. I have lost the ability to type much on the phone except short text messages […]

The Greatest Friends And Colleagues Ever


Musings, Relationships

On the 6th of September, 2004, I stood at the entrance to a rather forlorn-looking building on Bangalore’s Double Road or KH Road. As I entered, I saw another woman sitting at the entrance in front of a security guard. The guard was apologetic. “The office opens only at 9:30, Ma’am,” he told the girl. […]

I Am In Love


Musings

I am in love. Love. Love. Love. Ah, did your narrow mind think of only one reference here? Smile. I am not going to talk about that kind of love here. Well, not yet anyway. Today, I am going to talk about how I am in love with the Universe. I went running today morning […]

Why Happiness Is Not Just Happy


Musings

I had the most extraordinary, eventful week. Consider this. On Sunday, I see a letter from the Commercial Tax Office that I have to submit all the auditing for Trippin Traveller within seven days or be liable for civil/criminal prosecution. Also, by Sunday I realize that someone so despises me that they wouldn’t want anything […]

Stillness


Musings

About once or twice a week, I go to this office on Bangalore’s Rest House Road. I had previously spent nearly four years working in another different office on the same road. These days, though, my visits to this office are time-constrained. I usually drop in there in the mornings, and I am off before […]

A Cycle Of Gratitude To Remember


Musings

There it was. A runner who intends to cycle 150+km in a day. Did I succeed? Did I learn something from it? My task: An inviting stretch from Bangalore to Mysore. My gear: A Giant bike fitted with an 18-speed Shimano gear system. My mistakes: No cyclist in their right sense would try the Kanakapura […]

A Beautiful Friendship


Books, Musings

From the time I can remember, I have loved to read. One of my favorite memories is of me coming back from school when I was about five or six years old, and sitting on this little ledge that overlooked our yard while my adopted sister pampered me with snacks. My best friend – a […]

Meeting Guan Yin


Featured, Musings

On Saturday, I wrote about happiness and harmony, and the three values that I believe will enhance happiness. It has been a week since I have had time to think about what I value and realize that I was living in an illusion of the past, a past that no longer represented the extraordinary future […]

A Rainbow Is The Universe Saying Hi


Musings

I believe in synchronicity. I always have. Of late, I have been going through this phase where I see parallel numbers often. The 07:07s or 11:11s or 09:09s. This happens several times during the day. I think of a person and suddenly that person’s name flashes across on the street sign or billboard or on […]
