A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

The last ball…

The coin flipped lazily. Heads. D-day. So we bat. Thunder, volley, Charge of the blue brigade.

Flip. Tension. Discharge. Ball after ball. Some knocked. Others knocked out. Last ball. One wicket, six runs. Dumbstruck desperation. History repeats/Re-invents? Lucky, Chetan Sharma and J(anwar)ved Miandad retired! Crowds’ Nails digested; commentators ballistic; households stunned. Bowl(ing)ed. Hit. Caught. The End.


(Happily Enough :D!)

55-er. In anticipation :D!

(Online, almost a nervous wreck :P!)


No longer alone…

(A forced 55 er!) 🙂

The wedding guests had departed. Three days after, life was excruciatingly normal, yet again.

An empty nest. A busy husband. A bereft homemaker.

Now what? She thought… Live, or exist?

A week later, at an NGO, animatedly in the midst of young girls, laptop on lap, she sat- life she had grabbed, with loving hands!


It’s Women’s Day, and despite everything that is happening around us, I did want to think of the optimistic side of it all. How more women, as they grow into their empty nests do seem to be finding ways to live, not just exist. Kudos to such beautiful persons, everywhere! Starting with my mom 🙂 🙂

And to all you feminists, women and men, let’s celebrate The Woman 🙂

On a lighter note (but I do like the message it gives, at the end 🙂 🙂 ) may I share this picture that I received, in my inbox a couple of weeks ago?
