First day at School…

So..I got back to being a first grader. Big day for me, as I was more nervous than the children.. After a big leap of faith, leaving a company that I loved dearly, I took a plunge into cold waters and now I am learning to swim. Gosh being a Teacher is NOT easy. Only […]

Your greatest strengths are your greatest enemies

Weird no !? We all looooove to hear about our strengths. They uplift us in times of need, when we are feeling low and down and outright depressed. When someone consoles you, they say – ” Hey! forget all that. You know you are soooo helpful. You have been there for me. ” etc etc. […]

Be your own Hero

Lipstick? Check. Liner? Check. I always find myself hiding a part of me under the makeup, away from everyone. And you should do that.

I confess I was not much of a coffee lover, even though living in Pune with its famous coffee concoctions. Not even Vaishali’s strong one could […]

I am never sabotaging myself,my dreams or my career.

Just last month we had a function at our house. A big one. Relatives came from all over, shopping bags were strewn all across the rooms, and it was a blur of activities. There was utter chaos pervading at all times, it was confusing and disorienting to keep track of what was going on. Phone’s […]

There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…

As a child, English was my most favorite subject in school. I often used to read books much more mature for my age ( I tried to read Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake in the 8th or 9th std, and had all my relatives laughing at me ) I was also fascinated by idioms, the way […]

Fitness Motivation bouts – It sucks!

Good morning. Are we up yet?  Oh what time is it, wait it’s 7 already?  5 more minutes.Grrrrr. More sleep. Isn’t this a constant battle we face everyday?  Atleast I do. Every night I sleep with determination, tomorrow I’ll wake up at 7 and go for a run.  Or I’ll do yoga.  Or I’ll do […]

Moving on !!!

Mmmmm. A long breath. I try to settle in my chair and concentrate on the tasks for the day. I am not particularity fidgety today, nor am I still. My breath is irregular and calm at the same time. I hear the familiar sounds of people around me, work colleagues, the phone ringing or the […]
