Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

Written on the eve of my kid’s bridging ceremony which is held to mark their end of academic year. The idea is to cross a figurative bridge (from one teacher to the next) in front of friends and parents.

Some hard learnings from 2017 has led me to taking these resolutions for conducting my 2018 online life

In the past, new year resolutions have been a miss-hit for me. I have had my run-ins with the usual suspects:
2017 was a great year of change for us. While our move to Europe has rekindled some hopes of optimism, we still need to do some smart work to get our lives going forward in the right sense.
2017 just came to an end. It has been a fascinating year for myself – of slipping down the slope and getting lost before, finally, finding what looks like a path back up the hill. I am pretty sure that when I look back the pages of my life, 2017 would probably be the one where I will remember knocking the door of hope.
2016 was an eventful year. I look forward to 2017 in a positive way
Globally 2016 was a year ravaged with many calamities. The chaos that seemed to spread so quickly across the world was too hard for anyone to miss. When I look back, however, 2016 was NOT a miserable year. In many ways it was a good year for me.
A travelogue of our trip to Scotland
We are just back from our first real holiday in the UK. We visited Edinburgh and parts of the Scottish Highlands. Be it the natural scenery of the Highlands or the old streets of Edinburgh Scotland has a something for every traveler.

Looks like there has been an eerie silence in my blog for the past few months. I feel it is time to bring in a bit of Easter cheer!
2015 – An year of Breaking the Routine. Here is my usual lookback at the year that just seemed to have zipped past!
It was the beginning of an uncertain year. If there was any certainity in life, it was that our routine life was going to be shaken up. That we were to fly out of the nest of three years that we had gotten so very comfortable with.
I am trying to summarize the course of events as they unfolded in my hometown during the last four days. Chennai is perhaps one of the first cities experiencing a serious repercussion of Global Warming. But I am hoping Chennaites derive a lot of positives out of this ordeal and the world media starts to read between the lines.
I am jittery as I write this. My hometown Chennai is in the news for all the bad reasons. For those of you who are living under a rock, this is one of Indian metropolitan cities. Wikipedia might be able to give more stats about the population and other stats.
As I complete another chapter in my life and shift on to a new place and new friends, I ponder over these games that fate plays in life and the ache one feels while parting with a stable lifestyle and some close friends! Hopefully all these are for something good ahead.
It was a beautiful journey
Down the green mountain valley.
Cheerful and gay
I looked forward to every day.
The noise of the engine
Never spoiled our chatter;
The sounds of others around
Was lost in our laughter.
We spent our New Year’s Day at Bangalore this time. I am just penning a few thoughts on the year gone by and also jotting down a quick travelogue. There was not too much of travel as compared to our previous trip. Perhaps because we intended this to be a nice little break than a vacation of some sort.
It’s the end of another year and as is my tradition for past several years it is time to write a yearly write up. But then again, I was traveling around on new year’s eve and so wished to write a travelogue as well. Why not just club these together?
