Sounds of Home (A Poem)

The door creaking open,The shuffle of feet moving about,The sweet chime of mother’s glass bangles,As she tirelessly works in the kitchen.The faint sounds of morning shlokas,Emanating positive vibes all around the houseAs the family begins another day.The sizzling of the oil in the pan,And crackling of a crisp and brown DosaReminding me that it’s time… Continue reading Sounds of Home (A Poem)

But the one thing we had in common was that we all started at the same level: school. Today’s blog post is all about how schools shape our minds and ultimately, our… Continue reading Those Were The Days

The Gift of Appreciation

Back in my primary school days, we had copy-writing as a part of our daily homework. Each day we would be assigned to write about a page of copy-writing in English and Kannada (the local language). The next day our class teachers would check whether we had completed the previous day’s homework. Somewhere in between,… Continue reading The Gift of Appreciation

A New Sense of Calm

The monsoons are slowly setting in. I love the rains! They make everything look so much greener and fresher. Here's one of my older posts about Monsoons. Just the sound of rain in itself is so soothing to the ears. Is it just me or does everybody else find the nature become still soon after… Continue reading A New Sense of Calm
