Light , Endless Light 

The Shadows overtook her, A darkness filled inside her soul. Fury permeated her heart. She was saturated and narked, having lost complete faith.  They were Cataclysmic times. She sat there feeling broken, piqued and crestfallen. Every bone in her body vibrated in pure fury. The air around felt chilly and siberian. The winds gushed past…

Sosegad 

An old Colonial Goan Bunglow , a hammock in the garden in front, a little table in the grass. There was a pebbled pathway leading to the house, kissing the grass on either side.  The house was skirted with a red goan styled courtyard. An old armchair sat in the centre.  Walking in through the…

Bread ,Curry and Co 

 Sitting in the veranda today, Birds chirping in their harmonious tones , the plants freshly watered and looking green and alive ! I can’t help but look at the pictures from yesterday’s sourdough class and gloat  An idyllic village in Goa , a river named Maupsa floating right across the street. A street lined with…

The Cristal Quest 

Soft and airy , light, almost translucent , crunchy and divine !  Sourdough smitten that I am , I spend almost every weekend in my kitchen making some for the week. Sourdough absolutely rules my heart !  This week I decided to attempt the very daunting Pan de Cristal. More simply known as Crystal bread…

Odyssy of Dreams 

I walked down that sunkissed path , alone was I , amongst those towering boughs , that stood lofty and statuesque. Like stallworths were they.  I could hear them whisper , as the wind gushed past them , the sound of those rustling leaves , the whistling and sighing of the wind. It was sublime. …

That’s Amore 

“When the moon hits your eye , like a big Pizza pie  Thats Amore When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine Thats Amore ”  One bite of that Pizza at lunch , this afternoon and i was singing this song in my head.  One glorious taste of that pie and…

In Concerto 

As i switched on the music , the sound of the piano spoke to my soul. I felt at one with the music. Each note whispered to me , whispers full of promises , whispers full of hope , whispers that gave me goosebumps , whispers that stirred my soul.  I was lost in a world…

Pigtails and Popsicles 

The little girl that i once was , spent many a hot sunny day after school , all dressed in her school uniform , hair tied into little pigtails , treating herself to popsicles and beating the summer heat. Ice pops have been a huge highlight of my childhood , as I presume might be…

 My Mission Statement 

   A Mission Statement is a statement that describes one’s core values. It describes what one wants to achieve , the person one strives to be. It helps people to find a reason to exist, it helps to find a meaning, a focus. It inspires you to be more than you are. When we were…

As the curtain falls

As the curtain falls , we see the young knight enveloped in  silence and calm. As he sat by the banks of the river, motionless , as still as a log of wood.  He has been so brave for so long , as his life turned into a battlefield , never showing to the world,…

Paradise Island 

Yesterday morning, I woke up to the sounds of pouring rain, as it crashed into my window, as it fell torrentially on the trees , wiping them clean of all the dust and mud and grime that had settled during this past burning and boiling summer. All the birds had gone into hiding, probably having…
