Not every Q has to have an A.

At this moment, I am too tired to keep my eyes open let alone think in a straight line but I also know I can't sleep without writing. So here I am..with a new blog post.

Yesterday evening, one of our friends came over for night stay. His family is gone for a trip and thus, we invited him to spend the first day of new year with us. As we sat and talked, my husband suggested we must watch the movie - The Man From Earth. I have already watched it. Twice! It's a lovely and a very mind boggling flick. If you haven't watched it, I personally recommend that, go. Please watch it. Moving on...we agreed and the movie started to roll on the screen. As its plot started to thicken, we three got lost in its depth. At some point, our friend paused to share one of his experiences he had had lately. A few days ago, at night, he was sort of pissed off because of these days' mobile applications. Next morning he woke up and uninstalled everything. Next big change he felt in himself was the strange isolation from everyone. A detachment had started to curdle his mind because of which he was not able to connect with his family as well. Irony was, there was no any specific clue to point out as trigger. And he was a bit scared of such strange feelings.

I listened. And smiled. His feelings somewhere mirrored mine. I too, sometimes, feel like slipping into a bubble of anonymity and get blown somewhere far away. A complete isolation, seclusion is what expected from this bubble. Anyway, he talked and as part of human nature, we started rolling in some of the solutions. My husband even suggested him a powerful book. After a few minutes, I realized our friend may have been feeling the same things like any of us but...in a different context. In his context. His parameters to analyse such situation, to sieve through it and precipitate the result might be totally different than us. I stopped and thought. Not everyone has to have an answer for everything. Sometimes, it is okay to hang around only with the question or uncertainty. Not every question has to have an answer.


And it is well justified. I was amazed by my thought. I suddenly realized that till this point, we all keep trying to answer every question that hatches in front of us. We hardly bother to leave it alone and not to poke it with some explanation or theory. While my husband kept talking about that powerful book, I told him to stop. Let our friend find his own way to come out of it.

Right now, our friend is on the road, in his car, to get to his family and to bring them back from the tour. Hope he has a lovely reunion with them.

  1. I think it will vary from person to person.
    Like some will welcome that solitude as that is their basic nature, while there may be others who cant be alone for long as they like to be surrounded with people at any given time.

  2. Yeah. That's true. It varies as do the personalities.

Why do we need occasions like Mother's Day?

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in this world. Today is a special day for mothers and after wishing my own, I feel great. Mummy did not know today is her day and she was simply surprised when I wished her. She wished me back and then we chatted for a little more while before we hung up.


But before calling her, something else had happened. I was calling her but she was busy somewhere for incessant 20 minutes talking to someone else. Finally I called my father and informed about it's Mother's Day today. He chuckled and wished me. Then he asked,

"Who has made days like Mother's day, Father's day etc.? Do we really need such occasions?"

I laughed. Comments similar to this often flow my way nonetheless I replied to him.


"No. Actually we really don't need such days but if dedicating one day especially to our loved ones, we can shower some extra pounds of love, affection, care and gifts, there is no harm in celebrating them. For the rest of th…

Happy Diwali!!!

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and full of laughter diwali (I guess I am the first one to wish you all :) ).



It's 12.30 AM and I am awake doing some interesting chit chat with my beloved husband. He is such a great talker and an even better listener (later one goes in my favor of course ;) ). We are exchanging diwali wishes with our parents. I am really happy today as I'd be making a number of really delicious food items (you all are invited too), making two rangolis afterwards and then enjoying the evening with our friends along with firing crackers. I know I know crackers are unfriendly for our environment. Therefore, we all would be doing it in a limit :). My husband is such a great supporter. He loves doing chores with me which makes everything so special and quick of course. I find it sweet. I also enjoy his company pretty much. Yayyy!! We are going to squeeze the maximum joy out of our favorite festival....again.
And yes...as I had promised, I am sharing the two d…

How to deal with a nagging neighbour

If you have a nagging fighting-maniac neighbor next door then you can easily relate to my pain and if this neighbor happens to have a dog barking day in and day out, you can feel the loads of irritation coming my way any time and every time.

Neighbors...they are always imagined as a friendly next door people who not only share their space with you but also comes at rescue when you need them. Good neighbors become your another family out of your own. Having been blessed with a good friendly neighborhood is a bliss; something that we always wish for when we move somewhere.




But...our wish comes crashing when we encounter a troublesome recalcitrant people living next door. Before you realize what wrong you have done to them, they will come rushing only to drag you into a fight. The fight majorly consists of verbal accuses and high pitched voice insults. Whether you are innocent or merely a witness to someone else's fight, such neighbors always drag the rest of the word with them, inc…
