Today is one of those days when you have a series of thoughts gushing in I’ve been craving cake – not the flaky, stale kind; but the creamy, melt-in-your-mouth sortI might have dreamt of Sacre Coeur last nightThe first thing I read this morning that Oscar De La Renta was no more and immediately thought of the SATC pink dressI got myself a new hairdo and strutted along a street, … Continue reading “Part Une” →
What have you got on them? What have they got on you? It’s all about the leverage The right kind of pressure Those perfect words So easy to get wound in them Spin a little story And dream through rose-tinted glasses You must know when to step on the gas Then in an instant, tug on the reigns Change in a moment’s notice The toughest part is to convince oneself … Continue reading “Leverage” →
Abhishek had once told me that a mark of an effective and productive team was that it made noise. Not the maddening, disturb-everyone-around kind of pandemonium – but the good kind of chaos. He also told me, you never want to be in a place where all you can hear is the keyboards being clicked away at, furiously. I usually have earpods plugged in ALL the time at work, and … Continue reading “Drop a pin, someone?” →

Could you imagine that popular Indian advertising jingles such as ‘Washing powder Nirma’ and ‘Vicco Turmeric’ could be songs you’d like to add to your iPod and listen to? This video of Attulya Singh aka Atty was shared virally some years ago and I couldn’t get this boy’s voice out of my head. Never thought that a cover of Govinda – Karisma Kapoor starred ‘Goriya … Continue reading “Atta-boy!” →
I feel downbeat when I think about why I didn’t join the blog-sphere earlier than I did. In the developing years, it seems to have been so much more fun. So many more people that one could meet through their blogs and several interesting things to talk about and engage with, in this medium. Recently, I was nominated for something called a Liebster Award by Anisha who writes Absolutely Not Sure. (I must … Continue reading “Liebster-ing!” →
