More than 10 years ago I read my first John Sandford book. It was one of his Prey novels and I was captivated. I came across Lisa Scottoline's books in a famous bookstore in Bangalore more than 13 years ago and bought a few to take back home. I enjoyed them enough to buy as... Continue Reading →
I first got to know about Mothers' Day a few months after landing in US. Suffice to say India of the 80s didn't celebrate moms as a rule. That we do it now is more to do with the influence of various types television shows over the decades. Plus people like their social media timelines... Continue Reading →
Many, many years ago two girls were running late for a class with a rather strict teacher. The saving grace was that this teacher was a very good one so her snark and barbs didn't always wound.

Since we are partial to him retaining his blood inside his body, Red and I rushed to see what the reason was. The child in question wasn't terribly worried... Continue Reading →
Once upon a time, there was a dino. He was a fierce predator! But he was quite possibly an outlier because he also loved art. He usually rode on the back of a sweaty, puffing, cursing chunky woman and used to insist on the top berth while travelling in a train. He had started his... Continue Reading →
This kind of statement has become the norm these days: "C'mon baby, have your lunch and then let's shave your head. I have more chores left to do still. Chop chop!!"
I'm a wee bit narcissistic. I like to look good although you couldn't tell that from my perpetual "in sweatpants and loose tshirts" style but I do like to dress up. Even more so, I like to have a clear complexion and a healthy glow that isn't brought on by a cornucopia of make-up. Sadly,... Continue Reading →
