The  rain  drops  hit  the  window  at  an  angle  and  slid  down  causing  an  abstract  design  on  the  glass. The  outside  view  from  my  kitchen  window,  that  I  was  enjoying  so  far,  got  blurred. Rain  often  reminds  me  of  my  days  in  India.  After  the  oppressive  heat  of  summer,  we  welcomed  the  rains  with  open

    A  cup  of  tea  needs  something  deep fried  to  go  with  it. You  see,  Teley  Bhaja,  or  “deep  fried”  is  a  genre  on  its  own. Staying  true  to  my  Indian  roots,  I  can  deep  fry  almost  anything.  It  could  be a  variant  of  any  of  the  flours  with  herbs  and  spices,  or  it

    Like  every  year  the  ‘Cookie  exchange’  sign  went  up  on  our  office  notice  board.  Like  every  year  I  started  contemplating  should  I  sign  up  or  not.  I  counted  the  names  already  on,  a  total  of  twelve.  One  dozen.  I  needed  to  bake  one  hundred  and  forty  four  pieces  of  treats  at  least..

  “Poof”,  the  long  stem  struggled  out  from  my  right  ear,  the  two  leaves  with  it,  the  folded  leaves  straightened  after  exit.  This  was  followed  by  another  stem  with  leaves  from  my  left ear.  I  could  feel  a  rumble  inside  my  tummy  as  if  something  was  becoming  bigger  and  getting  ready  to  come  out  from

  We  left  England  on  a  rainy  day  in  January.  It  was  a  mixed  bag  of  emotions.  Leaving  the  known,  venturing  out  in  the  uncertain.  All  our  earthly  possessions    packed  in  ten  suitcases.  The  memories  attached  with  them,  the  emotions  tied  with  them  were  a  mere  function  of  weight  now.  What  was  the  accepted

    ‘Twas  the  month  after  January,  when  all  through  the  house Not  a creature  was  stirring,  not  even  the  scale. The  resolutions  were  taken  with  utmost  care, In  hopes  that  a  favourable  result  would  soon  be  there….’ Friends,  I  find  it  is  getting  trickier  to  hang  on  to  the  promises  I  made  to  myself…

  The  Cherub  faced  baby  with  a  wreath  around  his  head  looked  down  on  me.  Holding  hands  with  the  baby  standing  next  to  him  they  formed  a  circle,  in  the  painting  on  the  sky  blue  coloured  biscuit  tin.  The   lid  of  the  tin   had  a  knob  in  the  centre  for  better  grip.  The

  The  train  came  to  a  sudden  halt,  waking  me  up. Rubbing  my  eyes  I  look  out  of  the  window  to  figure  out  where  we  were.  A  smallish  station  with  busy  vendors. Steaming  cups  of  tea,  pre packed  snacks  exchanging  hands.  A  fruit  seller  with  bananas  and  oranges  at  a  distance,  a  thick  scarf  covering

Growing  up,  we  have  heard the  expression  “Dev  Anand  Jewel  thief  hai”  many  times.  What  could  be  the  big  deal,  I  often  wondered.  Dev  Anand  (  60s  Bollywood  star )  is  the  Jewel  thief,  goes  the  simple  translation.  It  was only  in  my  teenage  years,  that  my  Mejo  Kakima  trusted  me  with  the  family  secret.
