All of us have different definitions of peace A feeling that we probably cannot share I’ve always wondered how it would be to live underwater Minus the diving gear and all Then I stumbled across this video of the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium And as I watched it on full screen It felt like zen  I have been very vocal about my opinion of the captivity of marine animals, and I think … Continue reading “Zen”


Where do you come from? What do you look back to? What will you always remember? After a lot of years have passed. Let us go back. To the times. To the dreams. To the careless laughter. To bruised knees. To the sound of waves. And memories. Roots are important. They define you. That’s why its important to go back to them From time to time. *** आओ, उसे याद … Continue reading “Roots”


Today, my colleague Abdullah shared a video with me – he’s a big fan of Australian television shows and often sends me quirky and funny things to brighten my day.  All of us know of John Lennon’s Imagine. But this will take it to a different level altogether. After you watch this, I promise you will never not think of Emmanuel Kelly, when you hear the following lines: “Imagine there’s … Continue reading “Imagine…”

Real Beauty

I’ve never been a huge fan of Dove’s products, save for a body lotion with sparkle in it (Yes, it can make you feel like a Cullen for while), but I’ve always followed their ‘Real Beauty’ social campaign as I knew that Edelman Digital was behind it. But one of their adverts I came across today, made me think about beauty. If you haven’t already seen it – here it … Continue reading “Real Beauty”

About Today

Today the sun is hidden behind a thick cloud cover. Today I’m thinking of driving away, with the wind in my hair. Today feels like the perfect day to lie in a hammock and sip at pink lemonade. Today, I want to call a friend and tell them I miss them. Today makes me think where I’d go if I could fly. Today I’m dreaming with eyes wide open. Today, … Continue reading “About Today”


Talent lies in the most unapparent places.  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!”

Turn Up The Music

Is there anyone who hasn’t seen the Jill & Kevin wedding video yet?  Now is the time, then. The story will continue afterwards. I was introduced to it during my MBA at SIMC.  I cannot remember what class or who the teacher was, or what was the point of showing it to a bunch of post graduating students. But the song was a revelation! Everyone was nuts over it for a … Continue reading “Turn Up The Music”

Paradise Falls

I’ve lifted this video and the inspiration to this post off a friend’s blog.   How could I not.   There are love stories and then there are these.   Pixar has and continues to transport us into a world which we might never be able to visit with their imagination and belief in magic.   This part of the 2009 animation movie ‘Up’ is beyond words.   Eight minutes of living … Continue reading “Paradise Falls”

Conquest Of Paradise

A few days ago I was curiously reminded of a video that was most regularly played before guest lectures and important occassions during my post graduation. It was one of those rare five minutes in the college auditorium, where the parade-like music thumped and there was pin-drop silence. I have often noticed that the passion and inspiration that sport brings, are hardly matched by any other. Be it the Indian blockbuster Chak … Continue reading “Conquest Of Paradise”
