Hope in the time of turmoil

We take life for granted. Lost in our professional and personal routine, there’s no time to stop and think about the inevitable. We assume that we’ll return home to our loved ones, our ‘people’.

Cadbury Gems 

Something about Cadbury’s Gems that brings a smile to the face. Their colourful appearance, the sound they make when you shake the packet, that distinctive crunch when you bite into them – everything is instantly recognisable. There’s even different ways of eating them. One is where you munch them down. The other is where you…

वाट-पहाती आई

वाट पाहत सगळ्यांची, त्या लाडक्या खिडकीत तिच्या, काढीले आयुष्य तिने. काळ बदलला, परिस्थिती पण बदलली घडवला सगळ्यांना तिने.  पण ती मात्र आजही,  त्यांची वाट पाहण्यात रमलेली.

Twisties, trails and throttle rolls of fun on the NH3 run

The past few weeks had been rather hectic. Plenty of trips, but more a case of more work and less play. Plus the sight of watching the horses sitting idle in the corral had begun to get on the nerves. There hadn’t been much time on the road since the 2015 edition of Royal Enfield…

The Udipi Pizza Bond

I don’t know when and how Pizza went on to become a five-hundred rupee plus affair, with exotic sounding toppings and whatnots. To me, pizza has been something a lot more basic, a lot more personal. Sometime earlier this month, I took a trip down memory lane. The clock had run backwards after standing still…

A Mother’s Love is a Mother’s Love

She’d been in & out of good-health for close to two decades now. The very meds that keep her going, were messing with her system. A noticeable loss of appetite, against which there seemed no solution in sight. The (now) periodic escape from the city being her only solace. Her blood-sugar levels that had been…

MotoCouple Beginnings – Officially Speakin’

It was one of those IBW Chai & Pakoda Rides. The entire parking lot at Hotel Fountain, off the NH8-Ghodbunder Road intersection had turned into one huge mass of motorcycles and their riders. From the ginormous Harley’s to lightning quick sport-bikes, the Royal Enfield’s and sub-400cc single cylinder machines – they were all there. Amidst this…

Rustique Chronicles: That backstretch run

So we were returning, all showered up. Cruising along quietly when boom, an empty patch has been spotted! A gear drops unnoticed, the throttle opens & into the power band we arrive. It’s like the devil has been awakened & suddenly the scenery hurls past in a blur. A quick-ish upshift & everything disappears into…

at the start

When life transpires to drive a wedge deep within that rips our heart n soul apart it is important that the memories, they live on untarnished and immortal just as they were at the start

no answer ;(

A shattered couple, a girl without her sister at her wedding a guy without his lover, a Royal Enfield without a rider To think, that just a few weeks ago, were a bunch of friends out celebrating a birthday Death, when imminent is still difficult to handle at best Nothing in this world however would…

A Dozen Things to do before you say goodbye

Hate it all we want, but let’s face it, we can never hold on to someone forever. Goodbye’s are as inherent to life as death. Try as we might, but we can’t escape either. So the sooner we accept things for what they are the better it is for us. But before we come up…
