For you Aaji…

Happy Two Years of Blogging to me!! 🙂 🙂
So wordpress reminded me yesterday that I have been blogging for 2 whole years now! I can’t believe how far I have come from the first blog that I posted. The journey has been amazing and there’s definitely an improvement in my writing style, my creative output and narration. I’m thankful to all my blogger friends and followers who have encouraged me with their likes, follows and comments. This journey would have been incomplete without your support.

Horn-Ok-Please

via Daily Prompt: Honk
A 20 minutes ride from Mulund, Mumbai to Viviana mall in Thane without a working horn made me realise that horns are not necessary at all. You can very well manoeuvre your way through the traffic comfortably WITHOUT HONKING! Continue reading Horn-Ok-Please

Les Voisins!

via Daily Prompt: Neighbors
Neighbours, are the most popular subjects in our Indian society. Woh bajuwale ‘Sharma aunty’ ki beta and beti are the kids each parent talks about. Those kids, to top it off, are good at everything and we have to somehow live up to their standards. And that ‘Sharma aunty’ too is forever interested in our lives, “Marks kitna mila?”, “shadi kab karni he?” and everything.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S

This is to all the friends I have had so far. Even the ones that I no longer talk with. Thank you for the part you played in my life. I don’t want to put up photos of my friends and flaunt about how they are my “life” and my “soul mates” and blah blah blah. Because that would just be a shallow exaggeration!

And we Peed!

via Daily Prompt: Relieved
The poem that I’m sharing today was composed by me way back in 2009! I just had discovered this new talent in me and this is my 6th piece of creative writing ever.
So…the inspiration behind this is an incident from a trek. You will give the gist of it as you read through.

All Lined Up!

via Daily Prompt: Bottle
No summer is complete without the colourful “Baraf ka Golas” (ice pops)! The sound of the steel Bottle opener against the glass bottles on a particularly hot afternoon is perfect to shake awake our drowsy souls.

Timeless Moments..

What a day today! It’s raining cats and dogs all over Maharashtra and as the ‘life line’ of Mumbai had crumbled, I’m sure most of us would have spent a beautiful day at home, enjoying these torrential rains! Well..I had an amazing day most certainly.
I got stuck, paddled my way through the railway tracks which were waterlogged, made some new friends and finally got home by afternoon. And the rest of the day was very cosy and relaxed. I got to spend time with my family and we played board games! It was amazing and this has inspired me..hope you guys like it 🙂
