Keep Going.


Keep Going until you touch the horizon.


Since a few days, I am such consumed by my work that I hate to get up for other chores. I am being selfish but the truth is, that until you get one, you can't be a writer. Well, that's the truth of my life. Just yesterday I started working on my story right at the nick of noon and stopped only at 12.30 at night. I took little breaks but quickly got back on my sofa and worked like a maniac. 

When the rest of world goes by its ways, it is good to find something that can keep you busy so much so that you forget to notice the change in the shade of day light. When it has turned from burning warm afternoons to lighter sultry early evenings to pleasant late evenings to absolute silence of night, that amazes you only when you are done with typing to look up. And when you look up, you find dirty messed up house, left overs scattered over the kitchen counters, laundry waiting to be done, bed linen silently pleading to be changed and so on... And despite being a cleaning maniac (remember Monica from FRIENDS? I am a little shadow of hers. I know its scary!!), I accept all these changes. Because I have learned to be flexible from my work. I remember one day when I actually took notice of my house right after getting done with my story, the horror of being non-Monica scared a good deal out of me. I was immediately stressed but then I calmed myself down and was reminded to be OKAY with all this. It was an important lesson but fret not! When there is a guest in my house, it looks all nice and clean and a happy place to be in.

Today was also busy but because of other personal commitments and when I went downstairs for evening walk, the silent breeze stabilized my troubled inner state. I did not work today and that was troubling me somewhere but the walk assured me like this - So what if you could not work during the day. Night is always your ally. Always has been!

And it keeps me going, just like that.

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…
