I still remember that day. The sky was crystal clear. All the plants in the garden were wrapped with yellow and white flowers. “The best garden in the entire universe,” I might have said that again and again. I accompanied my mom to her best friend Aunt K’s house for the first time in my life.

Her memory was fresher than those blooming beauties of the garden. Her eyes twinkled each time she remembered her childhood in that garden during the story telling. Continue reading “Friendship…”
I love this quote. You know, you come across certain words and wonder if the writer knew you well enough before making you immortal on his words! Okay, then this quote was written on me!

When I am busy, my days rush like Olympic sprinters and I go with the flow: fast, faster, fastest. I love chasing time. Then just like all sprinters and marathon-achievers I feel tired after that long race. I slow down and seek peace.

Months back , I read something like this – Winning is not everything , wanting to win is! It was just the first month of 2013 ; I had many plans for 2013 ; mostly I am good at making plans and following them too; but result – I wish that was under anyone’s control.
So, when I started blogging , I never thought of going viral ,being famous ; I just wanted to let my thoughts wander in a calm, composed and elegant way in this big world ; I wanted to talk about things in good words , I wanted to share different stories and idea from my own journey ,and believed at times , a picture could express better than 100 words! And that’s how all started. A journey of pens and pixels . A Journey of words and worldly wonders! Continue reading “Let me say it in good words..”
