Late night rendezvous

leave a comment »

Or should I actually call it ‘early morning’ rendezvous considering it is the wee hours of the morning – 2AM to be precise?

A Bollywood channel which normally carries juicy tidbits from star-lives keeps us company with divine Hindi melodies from the 70s. Watching the drunk Rishi-Neetu Kapoor duo running around in broad daylight screaming “khullam khulla pyar karenge hum dono”, or the modest Amol Palekar-Zarina Wahab pair crammed to comfort in a jeep as he cooes “aaj se pehle aaj se jyada”, somehow seems a great way to end the day. Or to begin a new one.

Quotable quote

Since I know the latter is pretty rough territory, I am trying to take a few baby steps in the direction of the former 🙂

Isn’t it a wonder

with one comment

Ever noticed ?

  • That the chances of a vegetarian restaurant being named “The Fish Palace”, are perhaps one in a million ?
  • That problems seem very workable after you have had a delicious, sumptuous meal ?
  • That people invariably and blatantly peek into neighboring vehicles (esp autos) while waiting at a signal ?
  • That fusion music albums always have songs with the most unsuitable names. Chew this – “Skywatching”, “Tabletop Dancer” are songs from the very enjoyable fusion album “Bravado Masala”, but have nothing do with either star-gazing, or ummm…you know…
  • That there are still people in this world who have jobs that are of no apparent utility to the society that they live in ? For example, ever wondered who thought of building those huge, high and useless “gates” that are so frequently seen in Bangalore – the ones named after prominent celebrities like Sir M Vishveshwaraiah, Dr. Rajkumar etc ? Imagine, like someone actually got up one fine morning with a brilliant idea, gathered his trusted lieutenants and said “C’mon boys, let us go build this towering arch-like gate next to xxx traffic junction and dedicate it to yyy”.
  • That once you have stepped onto 30 (years of age), a) smiling becomes a forced necessity b) there are always a million different things you aspire to do, but can’t seem to start on any of them. c) your most likely answer to the question “What do you consider your most precious asset” is “TIME!”

Oh well, that reminds me – I am running pretty frugal with my most precious asset these days – oops let out my age, didn’t I ? Surprise, I am smiling! And now I am off to do some real work.

Problems and Solutions

leave a comment »

I have experienced that most often, the solution to an apparently complex problem lies in acknowledging the existence of the problem itself. And then recognizing that it is not a problem after all.

Crossroads

with 2 comments

At the current stage of my life, there isn’t a day that is laid-back and there isn’t a night that I can blissfully sleep through. Well, try and take your guess on my occupation based on that. Hmm, let me give away a clue. Live in the lovely (perhaps erstwhile) city of Bangalore. “Stressed-out” software professional ? Advertising guru ?

Nope, nope..! A completely “workaholic”, stay-at-home (see the contradiction ?) mother to my divine 11-month old son, Chikoo. Out to share my experiences on life and hoping there are similar frequencies I can tune into. And also out to enjoy this journey which apparently doesn’t seem to have any destination.
