    Rain drop, Rain drops fall upon my window (part 2). As clicked from inside my car while waiting in the rain. A perfect way to relax – rain drops beating on the roof, soft music inside the car, and no where to go.

    Believing vs. Seeking

    Before I start, I must confess these are not my original thoughts. These are thoughts from Sadhguru, a spiritual leader, I have been reading upon.  ———————————————————————————————————————————————- In order to believe, we must already know. When we know, we stop seeking more. In the process we stop learning. So which is better, believing or seeking? Sadhguru compares Believing to Religion. Our religion tells us to follow a certain path in life, and we believe the path is right. If we are religious, we never question the belief and we continue to conduct ourselves in the manner as preached by our religion. On the other hand, Seeking is like Spirituality. On our spiritual…

    Rain Drops, Rain Drops, Fall upon my window Sparkle on the leaves and twist the lemon tree Rain drops, Rain drops, down the hill and through the meadow No time to stop on the journey to the sea. My fav song from school. Had so much singing it with Toyna today. We were singing it when it started to drizzle, and every time we said “rain drops” it started to rain a little harder. By the time we reached home, it was raining cats and dogs, and Toyna kept singing “Rain drops”. 🙂

    Way to Mans heart is through his career Article from The Times, 17th June 2012. This is definitely true for men (and women) who are very passionate about their careers. In these cases, the career is often the first spouse. After all, in most cases, they were  already married to it, before they even met you. As the married spouse if you try fight for attention outside of the career, you are most likely going to lose. Supporting the career and building it together provides a sense of achievement and purpose to marriage as well. For me and my husband, our business(s) is our second child. The love and passion we have for it…

    Back to School!

    School started today and life goes back to the old humdrum of living by the clock. Did I miss it? Not one bit! Am I looking forward to it? Definitely yes! How can someone look forward to something, when it wasn’t even missed in the first place? The answer lies deep in the fascinating mysteries of a mothers heart! As a mother, I love everything about my daughter! Relaxing and rolling around with her in the holidays was fun, but school is going to be it’s own kind of fun. Poking her in the morning to wake her up, dressing her up for school, dropping her to the bus, and the continuous bick bick…

    My Thoughts: While I was driving back…..

    My Thoughts: While I was driving back….. Hats off to all mothers of today! and Double Hats off to our mothers who managed much more than we will ever be able to!! kota-pavani: I was driving back today from Sia’s Daycare and I was feeling very hollow. It was the time when I used to be busy with my office calls a year and half ago. I quit my job due to unavoidable reasons and off course also to take care of my daughter. I do take pride in my decision to quit my job to…

    Blinded by a Perfect Vision

    Sometimes we know exactly where we are headed, what we need to do and precisely why something is the way it is. This is when we are suffering from a syndrome, I call – Blinded by a Perfect Vision. We think we know everything, and in the process end up ignoring minor yet important details. The confidence that we are right, stops us from seeking suggestions and responding positively to feedback. It is like carrying a glass which is already full, hence there is no space to receive more.  I once had a manager who thought he had all the answers. Initially I was impressed, more like awed by his confidence. I…

    When Time Stops!

    We all come across moments in life which are so innocent, beautiful and extraordinarily simple. These are moments when the constant rush of life seems to just halt, when there are no regrets about the past and no worries about the future. All that matters is that moment and we wish that moment would last forever. Some amazing facts about such moments – You find them in the most unexpected corners and sometimes in company where you would least suspect to find them. These moments are completely unplanned. They can never be recorded, nor they can be recreated. If you try and recreate them, the original moment also ends up…

    Let the storm pass!

    There are a lot of moments in life, when we are at a loss of what to do next. When all roads seem right and all roads seems wrong; when everyone is right from their own perspective, but still the perspectives dont match. Some of us, like me, are control freaks. We like everything as per our way, under our control. Imagine then, our desperation when we don’t know which way to go; which road to take. Opinions, facts, knowledge, expectations all rise around us like a tornado simply out of control. The harder we try to find the answer, the larger the tornado becomes, as if deriving energy from our very…
