#MondayMusings : Down the memory lane

#MondayMusings : Down the memory lane

While Mondays are usually spent wondering how did the weekend go by and waiting for the next weekend to come, today was a little different sort of a Monday for me. Stuck at home because of the bandh, an unplanned leave happened. While Eat-Sleep-Read repeat is usually the mantra for days like these, I had a strange urge to look at pictures from my childhood.

#MondayMusings : Rediscovering the joy of cycling

#MondayMusings : Rediscovering the joy of cycling

The cloudy Saturday morning doesn’t dampen my spirit. There is wind in my hair as I stop pedalling while going down a slope. The rains from the previous night have washed the roads clean and I seek to explore the inner streets of the locality that I live in. Being a Saturday morning, it is quieter than usual as the city hasn’t woken up like […]

#MondayMusings : Creating Balance

#MondayMusings : Creating Balance

If I had to make a list of all the things that I wanted to do and tried doing them all I don’t think there would be enough time. All of us seem to have a to-do list that can never be ticked off because there is only so little that we can do in the time that we have. But does that mean we […]

#MondayMusings : If you think you can do something, you can do it

Life is too short to do all the things that we want to do. Yet, often when presented with an opportunity or when we have the choice to do something that we’ve wanted to do, we are unsure if we can do it. We hesitate to make that decision because we are scared to say “Yes”. We are worried thinking what if we fail. But […]

What if

What if

It is a beautiful summer morning. The sky is blue with white fluffy clouds while the sun shines brightly. It isn’t too hot. With the cool wind that blows, the weather is just perfect. There is no sign of the fact that there was a thunderstorm the previous night. If only I could be as calm with the storm that’s raging in my mind. In […]

Why do you need some “me” time?

Why do you need some “me” time?

We live in a busy world. There are milestones to reach and deadlines to meet. The list of things to do never ends. Our lives have become a journey from one task to another with the end result being that we are not happy most of the times. It is like like a never ending commute from one place to the other with no time […]

#MondayMusings : Of the warmth of home

I was at home for most of the last week and now when its time to go back to Bangalore, I do not want to go. I miss the warmth of home! Staying away from home is never easy. But at some point of time in life, we have to move away. Be it for education, for the sake of a career or for any […]

#MondayMusings : Of plans and not having them

Last Wednesday, when I was told that Thursday would be holiday due to Karnataka bandh, I kept wondering what would I do for 4 days as Friday was Republic Day and then there was the weekend. I had no plans. Not that I hadn’t tried making any. Since I already knew that it would be long weekend, there was a plan made with friends at […]

A few days ago when I was looking back on the posts I’d written a few years ago, I came across one that I’d written on my birthday two years ago. It was titled “My 25 by 25 list” . It was a list of 25 things that I wanted to do before I turned 25 because of quarter life crisis. I’ve less than 4 […]
