  • It´s my life!
    LanguageCafe | 10-Aug-2019
    And I have learned to love it. I enjoy trips down memory lane, listening to stories my aunt narrates in her cool, shaded balcony amidst cups of hot tea and crumpets. I don't get upset if my maid turns up late or not at all. I don't hesitate to give her an advance, even if the month has just begun. No more haggling with fruit and vegetable vendors and with auto drivers. No more judgment and no more opinions. I don't have to explain anything to anyone. If someone feels I am wrong, I just smile. Maybe they are right. Maybe not. How does it matter?  My inner beauty reflects more of me without me having to say a word. My happiness is my business and I am busy minding it.

    Poetry, musings, good books, long drives, movies with meanings, impromptu meetings with friends, a stranger locking eyes with you and holding the gaze, rainy days and rainy nights, lush green meadows with yellow mustard fields all around, balloons that soar up in the sky and disappear, paper  lanterns that carry your dreams to the sky..... Serendip, isn't it? So let's go ahead and enjoy this benevolence. LIVE like this is the only life we have.

    ..and probably the most interesting book you will ever read. Marvel at its plot. Allow its serendipity to bowl you over.  And be fascinated by the various characters you meet along the path.  And in chapters that make you cry, remind yourself of these moments. Sweet and sour go together. Even the worst downpour makes way for a clear sky!

  • Fly like a kite, with a little string in my hand
    Neha Mirashi | 03-Aug-2019
    The word "possessive" takes on a very strong and real meaning when your child starts interacting, and actually liking other people. And if this happens in the " i need to start disciplining my child" phase, you have had it. It is a mental roller coaster. You want to be the "good cop", always. You also know you cannot afford to be the good cop, because there is no "bad cop" around, other than you, not for many miles.I am still trying to figure out what disciplining means.I am trying hard to look into my past to see how, or even if, my sister and i were disciplined. For some reason, the word discipline brings forth a negative image. A picture of a cane and military style stand-in-attention, in a straight line, with ram rod straight backs. No laughing, no smiling, no giggling.When Aria makes a mess on the floor with water and mud, am i supposed to discipline her or let the joy on her face overrule?When Aria insists on eating on her own in the most messy way possible, am i supposed to discipline her or appreciate

    We all have memories of our childhood, largely vivid, but I’ll tell you one memory, which will directly, sort of, work on not your brain but your heart. When our teachers taught us, let’s say a poem, they would say, “by heart this and come tomorrow”. It always used to be ‘by heart’. And we used to go home and read it ten times over. Take that poem in our hand from this corner to that, we used to sort of repeat the lines and reciting the lines and transport all the content on the page to our brain. The next day morning we used to reach school and would speak a good 8 out of 10 lines perfectly. That for us was ‘by heart’. Did we ever give it a thought of why was it called ‘by heart’? That next morning when we stood there and recited the entire poem where we got 8 out of 10 lines correctly, was it really ‘by heart’? The fact is it was ‘by mind’. We minded it. And from that day onwards till the current day, we’ve been accust

  • Under our Umbrella

    This is for the people of Aurnagabad, who only hear about the rains in other places but are yet to experience the real monsoon! You think rain and all sort of images conjure up...for me, it is a nice cup of hot tea, a book (maybe a kindle), sitting by the window and some uninterrupted reading time, all to myself, all by myself, with the rain drops performing a symphony on their stage of the windowsill.It also makes me want to sing and dance, and actually believe in the romance of life.Aahh...rain....where art thou?The sun is sizzling, the roads are hot, mirages are dancing on the tarmac, the trees are losing their green hope and turning to brown despair again. The metal in the street is hot to touch, and the dust is flying free in this torturous reign of rising temperatures. The phone is still buzzing with messages for "summer sale" from retailers, clearing away what they thought was the last of their summer stock, more needs to be re-ordered. Ice creams and cold drinks, fired from the show, have been given

  • Not everyone you let go is a loss.
    Sonal yakkundi | 28-Jul-2019
    Not everyone you let go is a loss.   Yes, Friendships are important. You need friends who brighten your life. Friendship is a two-way relation. Give and take is a perfect formula to maintain it. If your friend gives 50 percent, you should try and give more. But you should NEVER BE emotionally dependent on a friendship. Emotions like attachment, anger and love are temporary.  Such emotions should not affect you.  Some people are not worth your time/emotions and care.  Yes, the ego is wrong. But you should not lose self-respect and keep someone in life just because you are emotionally dependent on them. Choose yourself, choose self-respect.  Once you love yourself, people will love you. Hence if you choose self-respect, you will be respected. May it be a best friend or anyone, NO one is allowed to take you for granted. You don't need friends who are dominating/selfish or "who needs you coz they are lonely and miserable" Get the hell out of such toxic relations and be free.

  • If a woman speaks and nobody is listening , her name is probably MOM!
    Team Kalamwali | 24-Jul-2019
    - BY EESHA PATWARDHAN   A year earlier I may have read this quote and scoffed at it not feeling the weight of every single word. Today , two months after being blessed with a baby , these words have a whole new meaning to me. Motherhood is the least appreciated yet most gratifying job any human could ever have . Motherhood is like the air we breathe, its vital to life yet we take it for granted . We accept it because we have it so readily available and on top of that a mothers love knows no bound so all the more reason for us to take it for granted . But motherhood is no cakewalk for sure. A mother is born the day a baby is born , a woman quickly switches over to the role of a caregiver and nurturer . It is not only physically painful to become a mother but also a very long and difficult mental journey . From being somebody else’s baby , you now suddenly have one to call your own and within seconds of it being born you need to care for it . a.k.a feed it , love it and make it all your own. Wh

    Team Kalamwali | 22-Jul-2019
    - BY NEHA AHUJA.     Travel is what soul is to a body  What makes you feel alive  Travelling reduces days and add experience  Photos , memories always remind me of good times and encourages me to travel more often  A perfect place is that which doesn't remind me to miss my home and feels like it was always your home You know the place more than locals . You have tasted all the food out there and still hungry for more. Travelling lets you meet new people and I can listen to their endless stories   For me travelling is something which I can't describe in such small paragraph it's a lifetime experience
