And even in your home, there is scope for setting your heart at some specific places and in some defined objects.

Murphy versus Coelho

Posted on 13/06/2021 by Trivia – the Spice of Life Have you ever wondered how there is space for diametrically opposite views on life? I guess that is because each day is different. One day could be Murphy’s and the very next Coelho’s. Let me just juxtapose the two schools of thought below for betterContinue reading “Murphy versus Coelho”

Trivia – The spice of life turns one

I started my blog – Trivia – The Spice of Life – during the lockdown last year (2020). The fact that I have been posting weekly pieces regularly since last May, gives me immense pleasure. Despite having a full-time job, I look forward to Friday evenings (TGIF) and the ensuing weekends to work on aContinue reading Trivia – The spice of life turns one”

A year passes by

Posted on 28/05/2021 by Trivia – The Spice of Life It was around the same time last year (2020) that I commenced blogging. The circumstances were pretty much the same. There is a strong sense of déjà vu, as 2021 is turning out to be no different. The last year was perhaps kinder. The pandemicContinue reading A year passes by

The Slammed Door

Posted on 08/05/2021 When I used to live in Delhi, more than two decades ago, I recall how an occasional summer afternoon would be marked by an aandhi (or dust storm) that would bring some respite from the scorching heat. But the high speed winds, laden with fine dust, would also mean unending rounds ofContinue reading “The Slammed Door”

बचपन की गुल्लक

आज अनायास ही बचपन की वह गुल्लक याद आ गई जिसमें सालों पुरानी अनगिनत मासूम यादें अब भी महफ़ूज़ हैं I जिस तरह कहते हैं कि जो मज़ा इंतज़ार में है, वह दीदार-ए-यार में कहाँ , ठीक वैसे ही कोई भी चीज़ जब आपको बिना इंतज़ार किए मिल जाए तो उसकी क़ीमत का अंदाज़ा हीContinue reading “बचपन की गुल्लक”

The Rag Story

The rags to riches and the reverse has been talked about and discussed quite a bit. But does any one spare a thought for the poor, measly ‘rag‘? I felt it was high time we spotlighted the rag and discussed how important it is in our daily lives. Before we proceed, it is important toContinue reading “The Rag Story”

Vice – Wise

The other day there was a news article about the legal age for drinking being reduced to 21 years from 25 years in the National Capital Region (New Delhi). This disturbed me and set me thinking. It is so ironical that everyone knows that there is no virtue in either drinking or smoking; nevertheless, bothContinue reading “Vice – Wise”

What’s the Good (Pass)Word?

Those of us who were fortunate to have had a blissful and less complicated childhood without cable T.V., would surely recollect the Doordarshan days. Aired on Doordarshan was India’s first English-language game show, a word-guessing game called What’s The Good Word? It was about guessing the key word with a list of related clues. The showContinue reading “What’s the Good (Pass)Word?”

The Perfect Present

It is often said in the context of presents that one’s presence matters more than presents. This is particularly true in the case of close family and friends. But the COVID-19 pandemic has turned this entire notion on its head. With online schooling from home alongside work from home, it is actually a case ofContinue reading “The Perfect Present
