Medicine .. No more a profession of service !

Growing up i have always looked up to doctors & the medical profession. My fathers a Pediatrician & my brother was a doctor too. We grew up in an era where the food we ate was not adulterated to the levels it is today, the air we breathed a lot less polluted, all of which…

Monsoons in Bangalore ..

Monsoon used to be my favorite season of the year. Back on the coast we had only 2 seasons – Summer & monsoon. Otherwise it was just various moderation’s of hot humid weather.  Whilst that may not sound very inviting it has its own charm. I loved growing up on the coast & miss the…

Vertigo

Walk in someones shoes to know what its like. This holds true for so many aspects of life. I had heard of vertigo – described in different ways based on how the person experiencing it felt but nothing could have prepared me for how it actually felt. I always associated Vertigo as one of the…

Reuse/ recycle old toy as planter.

Usually we do a alternate month toy cleanup & discard the broken toys or give away the old ones that our sons outgrown. This particular one I held onto to use as pots for my plants. They have a rather wide hole on the underside that i taped up leaving just a small gap to…

Doodle Art

Inspiration is so easy to come by. I saw this awesome video online where this man doodled an entire room from floor to ceiling covering all the furniture too. Of course he made it look real easy :). It was fun I have to admit. I’ve been seeing people doodle on pretty much everything but…

Pebble / Rock Art – Painting

I discovered Rock painting early this year. And Ive been hooked to it since. Now a visit to the beach guarantees I come back with any pebbles I can find. I figured out ways to make my pebbles stand or rather to display them in an upright position so my works visible. I use silver…

Plastic flowers – DIY

These were real easy to make. Tried them with various disposable bottles and found that coke bottles the best. The wide petaled flower is made from the top portion , while the others are from the bottom part. Next time I must remember to take pictures of the steps. For the wide petaled flower I…

Home Made Butter :)

I just wish i had discovered how easy it is to make butter at home much before. Packaged butter just does not have the same taste ! My mum would always make butter at home, but we use clarified butter(ghee) a lot, so all the butter she made wouldn’t stay butter for very long. When…

Where theres a Will ..

I never miss a story. There’s something to learn from every story one hears. And so when my cook was telling me about this juggle the lady whose house she goes to in the morning does, just so she can have a career and be a mother at the same time, got me thinking if…

The Talented Mr. Ripley

While this is an old 1990s movie, we happen to watch it just the other day. And like all the books and movies i watch and read , it lingered on in my mind for a while after watching. It has a great star cast & was a lovely rendition of the book. Human nature…

Plunged into obscurity

Having always been one to have strong opinions about pretty much everything I enjoyed having my own blogspot where I could pen down my thoughts on this and that and sometimes have healthy arguments with random people on what Ive written. In between life happened and what with work, marriage and then motherhood I lost…
