At 6 AM everyday, I see an old man sitting alone in the park, sipping hot coffee from his Peet’s mug. He keeps his mask under his chin, and watches the birds flying above. I try to keep the social distance, tip-toe, and balance my steps with my foggy glasses and cotton masks. Yet I wonder why he is there, for months, at that time of the day, alone.

I grew up in India. That means I know a country that kills its girls before they are born. A country where parents of a girl child have to work hard to save money for dowry. A country where wings of women are chopped and dreams are shoved.

Women’s day should have felt special because in a country like that womanhood definitely deserved a day of celebration to cheer up.

Moments that we take for granted until we lose or gain faith on them again.
In life , we come across many things ; a lot of them look beautiful from distance ; a lot of them stay in our heart – we call them dreams , desires ! So often ,the idea looks better than the reality! Continue reading “A Good Morning.”

And you know I do not like hypocrites Continue reading “Summer!”

All my life until a few years ago, I was extremely thin . I loved food . But, studying hard, gossiping with friends , dance class, painting , singing loud, poetry writing , going with friends to watch art films , debating on national politics ,fixing the best friend with her best friend etc were more important. 😉 Nutrition , healthy eating were never the topic of any discussions.
