Pieces of Us #SoulfulSunday

There are these pieces of ourselves that we keep inside, concealed from the outside world. I have such pieces. I’m certain you have them too. My thoughts often drift to these mysterious places – memories I can’t quite recall when I’m fully awake and aware. These places, along with the memories, form the concealed fragments […]

Vacation Tales!

It’s been a while since we caught up on current affairs, hasn’t it? I am writing this while on a vacation in India. Unfortunately, our trip to India, though we call it a vacation trip, had never been anything remotely close to a vacation. Our stay in India even if it’s for a short duration […]
