Anything is possible

February 20, 2012

Wow! How long has it been? I guess inspiration is in short supply these days.
So why now?
Inspiration!
Every so often, one comes face to face with an attitude of life that says “Anything’s possible.” In my case, it’s been almost 6 months. Whilst on my daily trawls through the abundance of modern day garbage (internet [...]

Possessing an indentity

September 10, 2011

The house, the car, the TV, the iPad, the iPhone, the clothes, the shoes, the wife, the kids – we are what we “own”, right? Our identity is created by the possessions we have, and how we relate to them, be it a material possessions or a relationship. It defines us. It defines us because [...]

Thoughts to destiny

July 17, 2011

Most of us are oblivious to our recurring thought patterns and chattering that happens in our head every hour of every day. More importantly, most of us are oblivious to the power our thought patterns can have on us and our destiny.
A thought arises in our mind pertaining to an event, a person or a [...]

Are we just staying afloat?

July 9, 2011

I received an email from my sister today, which included a forwarded email from one of her old tutors. His name is Father Terry. I’ve never met him, but have often been privy to the words of wisdom that he imparts to his students.
This email I received tells a short story, but makes a very [...]

Everyone’s got a but

April 14, 2011

“I really like this guy, but I don’t think he feels the same way.”
“I’d love to stay in this job, but my boss is on a cost cutting spree.”
“I want to be more healthier, but I just don’t have the time.”
“I wish I could study harder, but I can’t seem to concentrate.”
The common elements in [...]

So India wins the cup

April 3, 2011

That’s not meant to be a blase-istic remark or a carefree attitude I’m taking. I’m an Indian. It means a lot to me. 28 years in the making, and India finally does it.
But that’s not really it. I don’t like cricket. I don’t follow it. Until recently I didn’t even know the different types of [...]

How grounded are you?

March 23, 2011

I came across a very insightful quote today – “Life is like a grindstone. Whether it polishes you up or grinds you down depends on what you’re made of.”
So here I am thinking, “What AM I really made of?” – do I crack with the first strike, or do my edges become sharper with each [...]

It’s been a while

March 19, 2011

Wow. It has been a while since I last visited my own blog! I guess I was overly optimistic when I said in my bio that this one is going to last (self-pity laugh here.)
Well, at least I haven’t disappeared, and I can cling to the old cliche of “better late than never” – although [...]

Streets of Mumbai

September 30, 2010

I can never find the right words to describe life on the streets of Mumbai. It’s as if the word “life” itself takes on a new dimension, one that is only experienced when you walk the streets yourself.
As soon as you walk out of the air conditioned cocoon of your flat, the reality of the street [...]

Yeh dil maange more

September 26, 2010

Let me paint a picture. My uncle is in the driver’s seat of a 6 seater family saloon. My dad is in the passenger seat in the front. Another uncle and aunt in the middle seats and I’m snug right at the back.
There’s some melodious techno 90s Bollywood music blaring out of the 2 stereo(ish) [...]
