In exchange for today

February 28, 2012

“What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.” – Sandy Puc

Through the Indian gap

February 24, 2012

My recent trip to India in January was an experience to say the least. It was as much a spiritual journey as it was a physical and emotional one. More on that in my future posts.
I’ve never been much of a photographer, but have loved the medium as a form of expression and story telling. [...]

Push button to open

February 21, 2012

So here I am standing in front of the door, waiting for it to slide open for me to walk through. And it doesn’t. The sign reads “Automatic Door”, so I wait patiently. Nothing. Then I read the sign underneath that says “Push button to open.”
And it hits me. Is this how we live our [...]

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 [...]

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.”

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 [...]
