Half a mug of water ,freshly set on the stove,
one spoon of dehydrated leaves ,mixed with the water above,
boiled a while ,and topped up with milk , turns into a concoction called tea
What would my world be without Tea ? Sometimes when I think about it, I feel glad that I didn’t exist before tea was discovered! If the world does come to an end when I’m alive, I always hope it expires after tea time.

We all have that one person who with just one look, text, or call makes everything better.
One look at the concerned person, One word from him/her or even a text and all the problems in your world will seem to disappear into thin air

Some of us .. don’t.
Scene: At a holy pilgrimage place , 6 years back
Me: “Do we really have to do this? Wouldn’t visiting the temple at RT Nagar suffice?”
Mom: “I prayed and promised the lord that I would bring you here once you graduated and got yourself a job”

A status update i saw on Facebook said –
“My daughter turns 17 today. If she were in Delhi, she’d probably be a target for lecherous men. In the US, where she is, some gun-toting madman, perhaps. Can we live on the moon, please?”
Good idea , I thought- send all men to Mars and women to Venus.. At least we’d live in peace!!
Of late, I’ve been pondering over this thought that struck me as I was reading my novel one day… Looking around me as i went out for a stroll, I realized that were always being bombarded with information / rules/ events that we do not choose to be bombarded with most of the time .. and I wondered … What If nobody taught you anything?
