A Coach Called Life


Musings

Yesterday, a friend messaged me saying she was quite upset, annoyed, and was miserable. I responded saying, “I am upset and annoyed, too. With work. With people. With life. Fed up with all of these.” There must have been a shocked silence. Well, as much of a silence as you can gauge on What’s App […]

The Thing About Weddings


Relationships

I am not much of a believer in societally sanctioned ways of living together. The thing called love doesn’t much understand itself in a legal contract, but it’s the way we do business.

I remembered the texture, the flavor of garlic and ginger. Just gentle garlic and ginger and the rich, […]

Running On


Everyday, Musings

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 […]

Of Animals and Insects


Everyday

Today was a day that didn’t feel like a run. I woke up, needing sleep, craving sleep. I had skipped running yesterday and had instead done some yoga. Today was a no-skip day. It took a while, but eventually I made it. I usually go to a wooded area nearby. There are coconut trees and […]
