HEIGHTEN YOUR HAPPY HORMONES

I have often viewed that having a balanced perception, driven by some purpose, is the best way to navigate your life. A balanced view will always keep you in equilibrium, calm and composed, allowing you to be stable and thereby apply the best choices when it comes to taking decisions. Balance helps us to negotiateContinue reading “HEIGHTEN YOUR HAPPY HORMONES”

A Chance Encounter with Encampers

           It was in the midst of the pandemic last year, when I was introduced to Ratan and Prakash, the founders of Encampers, whose reference was given to me by my son.

Manifest your dream

                                                       A few years back, on an official trip to Kolkata, I made it a point to catch up on my dear friend, with whom I shared a rather unique relationship.

Of Mothers and Daughters

As a child I was quite a tomboy, always happy to be running or playing or jumping. But somehow it was the creative pursuits of my mother that inspired me to explore my own creativity. Whatever she did, she would do with great passion and an eye for perfection. As a very small child, IContinue reading “Of Mothers and Daughters”

When Magic Happens

When I was around eight, my father came back from a work trip bearing a precious gift for me – a bundle of books by Enid Blyton. Those books were my first introduction to the amazing world of reading. Though later I went on to read many other authors, my childhood was mostly spent inContinue reading “When Magic Happens”

The true elixir of life- friendships

Recently, my friend Babita had put up this tongue in cheek post jokingly suggesting that the transformation was due to the face masks we had applied. But really, looking at the photographs, I was amazed to see how relaxed, glowing and glamorous we all looked in the second photograph! This photograph was clicked on theContinue reading “The true elixir of life- friendships”

Music for the soul

It was the 3rd Anniversary of the State Cancer Institute, and the entire hospital staff was gearing up for the mega three day event. While everybody was assigned different roles, I found my hands full too. Hectic preparations started from almost a month before the D-Day and the hospital was buzzing with rehearsals, sports practicesContinue reading “Music for the soul”

Melodies to Memories

Driving to work a few days back, I had my music on as usual. On that particular day, I was playing my streaming service and had selected a new playlist they had curated for me. Suddenly, one particular song started playing and I detected a smile spreading across my face. It was a song, dancingContinue reading “Melodies to Memories”
