Photo Friday (8) – messengers of love

blog postThis post was has been in my drafts folder for quite a long time. I don’t know how I missed posting it for so long. Anyways, as I say always, better late than never! 🙂

These cards/bookmarks are what I call ‘the messengers of love’. Ashima from Lime ‘n’ Lemony had sent them to me on my request. This is part of her project – Art with Heart. She personally handcrafts each one of them, putting in lots of love along with hard work. You can read her post on how she started this project here – Art with Heart. (more…)

Photo Friday (7) – The Sea

Photo Friday (6) – Savoury delight!

WP_20130725_007 Food, for me, is way of expressing love. Maybe this is why I find that extra flavour in my Maa-made food, and I am sure everyone does! 🙂 And living far away from home, makes that feeling stronger. Every time I visit home or Maa visits me, I am delighted by the food I get to gorge on. Even a simple meal of rice and daal tastes so much better when she cooks it. 🙂 (more…)

Welcome to another episode of Photo Friday! [The previous ones can be found here – 1, 2 & 3]

These cheerful yellow lilies are currently the sunshine of my balcony garden, making me smile every morning. 🙂 Today I also have a poem that I think goes with my photo of the week – (more…)

Photo Friday (3) – Beyond

photo friday 3 Beyond…..

Welcome to the 3rd episode of Photo Friday. 🙂 I love this weekly feature I am doing here every Friday. You can check out the previous ones here & here.

Today’s photo was clicked by me a long time ago on my way to Tezpur, Assam. Yesterday as I was browsing through the pics in my phone, I found it again. As I was staring at it, I realised that somehow it feels that the road ends at the farthest point of the pic my camera captured.  At this point, the following lines by Rumi came to my mind  – (more…)

PHOTO FRIDAY (2) – Kick Start

WP_20150212_004Pink pops!

I have once shared my gym woes (post here) and my forever lasting struggles with doing exercise and other healthy stuff like that. However, this time I have decided to set small and do-able goals for myself and push myself a bit more every time I achieve them. This I think will give me the sense of satisfaction as well as the zeal to push myself a lil’ higher. For now, I have started with waking up early (now that’s a huge task for someone who wakes up at 8-8.30 everyday!) and going for walks in the morning (for about an hour). Hopefully I can keep this routine going until I go for my next step. Wish me luck guys! 🙂 (more…)

Photo Friday (1) – Bliss

I love taking pictures of things around me which catch my attention. And for this I generally use my phone camera since it is always with me and is hassle free too. The picture quality might not be perfect but they do capture what I want to, so in the end I am happy. 🙂 In order to keep these pictures in a proper place for posterity, I have decided to do a weekly feature in my blog – PHOTO FRIDAY, where every Friday I will try to post my picture of the week. So here is my 1st one –


I have earlier shared (here & here) that I am trying to nurture some potted plants in my balcony. This year this plant (I don’t know the name) bloomed for the first time and the happiness the flowers brought me is inexplicable in words. From the day I first saw the buds I was waiting with bated breath for this day and when it finally came a few days back, I was overjoyed. 🙂
