The airport is a wonderful place. Thronging with people who are making their way to their next destination- some of them are with hope, some with despair, and some (like me) exude passive indifference. Sans the pat-down, till the moment I got comfy in the waiting chairs, the journey wasn’t all the bad-, my jovialContinue reading “Airport Chronicles”
All for a plate of food!!
The kid screamed with glee and they opened the door to the restaurant. He tore through the aisle and occupied the table at the farthest corner. His mother, a lady who looked like she had seen better days, slowly walked and sat beside him. Her face had a grandiose aura and she sat there, teemingContinue reading “All for a plate of food!!”
The far roads lay straight for miles, empty in all its glory. The sun was slowly fading from the horizon. All around you, it was just the road and your car- accelerating and decelerating at its twists and turns. The solo ride and the wind gushing onto the face- the feel was exhilarating despite theContinue reading “127 Seconds!”
Have you ordered a thali home? Little plastic cups filled with delectable dishes enough to fill your tummy and increase its circumference momentarily. Or better, a plastic tray with each of the cubby holes filled with choicest of the dishes. But have you had the pothichoru? An ambrosial experience (if I may)!

Hazy vision, stifled breathing, heart racing at 120 bps, constricted blood flow in my hands, overall choked up feeling- my day couldn’t have been better. Reading the title + the first line might have brought in a thought that I had that ‘virus’. Thank God, no! At least, not yet! Praying never! That is howContinue reading “COVID Blues”
The Art of Making Tea!
Tea- a beverage fabled as a drink mistakenly discovered by the Chinese and made ever-so fanciful by the British over its vast empire including India. Earliest historical reference on Tea in India dates back to 12th century AD while the British started producing it commercially and with China, India constitutes over 60% of the globalContinue reading “The Art of Making Tea!”
An Unspoken Word
It was just a white curtain that separated them inside a large room in a hospital bustling with patients, doctors, nurses and bystanders. Busy as always- people were filing in and out- of course, they were as this was the pre-COVID era. Two beds on either side- an older man was sitting on a chairContinue reading “An Unspoken Word”
A Tale Yonder
She lay there, unperturbed. A gentle whisper near my ears. She dodged my outstretched hands. A mockery in her eyes. As I lay on my head, for some shut eye. Again she went, a whisper and a taunt. Made me wide awake and agile. She was fast and frisky. I was so not to be.Continue reading “A Tale Yonder”
