    Hoysala Central: Belur & Halebeedu

    by

    Hi All,

    This is a post I’ve been putting off for a while now.

    This is a weekend trip I made to the historic places Belur & Halebeedu to admire and gaze at the majestic temples and incredibly detailed architecture of the Hoysala Empire.

    I will detail my journey through …

    Head Against the Wall

    by

    Are there times when you are so exasperated that you just go and put your head against the wall and curse in a low voice?

    Well, I’ve been having them A LOT lately – especially last week.

    This is the tail end of a two-hour long discussion with a colleague …

    You Keep Going.

    by

    When you’ve waited and waited, and see that neither your time nor your willingness to wait meant nothing to them, that’s when you stop.

    When you’ve seen so many of them and none of them prove you wrong in your belief that they’re all liars, that’s when you stop.

    When …

    Thanks for that!

    by

    Hey to the person sitting right next to my cubicle.

    Guess what, it’s been a delight listening to you diss me.

    Your euphemisms for me like “expert”, “specialist”, “gold medalist” etc are all just “heartwarming” to listen to.

    I guess you think you’re all that and I assure you, you …

    Oh…the comments I’ve heard

    by

    Comments I’ve heard and tried not being offended because of it. I found that not reacting to them were better than dignifying them with responses.

    Got proof that chauvinistic/racist/sexist comments are made by both men and women and that it’s not the gender but the small-mindedness that comes out.

    Mr …

    One Year and a New Belt

    by

    One fine morning, as I clatter away on my keyboard, I get a mail that said – “Congratulations! It’s been a year…” and I go “Say what?!”.

    It has been a year. A year. A YEAR!

    If you ask me what happened during that one year, it’s all a big …

    Heaven

    by

    Do you know what Heaven is?

    Heaven is opening your wardrobe and seeing the clothes you bought for yourself using your own money.

    Do you know what Heaven is?

    Heaven is coming home after a long, tiring day and seeing there is tea ready for you.

    Do you know what …

    Choosing to not choose

    by

    I had always thought great of those who pursued their dreams and had turned their backs on responsibilities…more importantly societal pressure.

    But then I remember that they gave up many many other things for that one single goal of theirs.

    I honestly will tell you, though I would love to …

    On Moving & Moving On

    by

    It’s not really a thing I can boast of, but…I pack really well. I am a great PACKER.

    It might be because of all the times I moved, the countless hours I have spent just fitting things where they weren’t or maybe the countless scrapes,nicks and curses followed by a …

    Wanting to be Immortal

    by

    Isn’t it natural?

    To want to meet yourself, to want to see yourself through someone else’s eyes, to know what others think when they see you – the first time, every time, the last time?

    I want to.

    I would often ask those friends whom I can trust to tell …
