heat of the moment

yes, devouring and notable moments often come uninvited, unintended and lasts for time enough to truncate the no nonsense period to a forgettable, interesting and often, trivial endeavors. no, not counting on them. just getting the nuances set for the days that promise sunshine, lots of jelly fish, some time idle and lots of time to introspect. not really, but this isn’t the moment of truth to pen such lines of fetish ponies that get you deprived of the exuberance that you thrive on. to survive, and to creep ahead. that reminds me, am late and the saga continues.

Mayavaram Paatti

For a very long time, I never realised the town had a different name. For me, it never mattered. It was her place of residence and that is all we knew during our growing up days. For us, it was enough. In fact, me and my sister never cared to know her name as well, for a very long time. Again, it doesn’t matter as names and relationships don’t always go hand in hand. Not for me, not for my sister either. She was our dear Granny, my mother’s mother and there lies the inherent respect that we derived and … Continue reading Mayavaram Paatti

Yes, my affiliations are random and anything intriguingly watchable is my forte. But, if it’s about Jayalalithaa, then I will have the Pandora’s box open for numerous anecdotes. Jayalalithaa was a combination of enigmatic qualities – talent, charismatic, gutsy, controversy child, courageous administrator, a power hungry leader who is obstinate, eccentric and autocratic. Yet, the love and respect that accentuated from people of Tamil Nadu clearly made a statement – she was the powerhouse behind AIADMK’s routing success … Continue reading Jayalalithaa – Our Woman of Steel

Dallas, My Acquiantance

Took me places amidst engaging business in an interesting lasndcape. Tour to skyscrapers, lights to heights in a lonely banter of maze like over bridges, a bustling downtown with piece of history and tantalisingly close shaves of the airline wheels. Come back vehicle is a fetish feeling of possible equations. Let’s wait and make things turn around. For good, for work, for me, for us. Continue reading Dallas, My Acquiantance
