The Follow-up Saga

Have you ever wondered how much of your waking time is devoted to following up? Many a time, we are perhaps not even aware of the fact that we are following up. The dictionary meaning of follow-up is “pursue or investigate something further“. In this post, I shall dwell on the former meaning i.e. pursuingContinue reading “The Follow-up Saga”

The Winged Ogress(!)

There is no human being on earth who has not been the victim of the winged ogress. Do not go by her size. Her damage potential is immense despite her miniscule size.

Organized Mess – The Golden Mean

I love oxymorons, as they are a great way of providing a meeting ground for two diametrically antithetical concepts.

Fairy Tale Week

This week has been ‘Fairy Tale Week’ for me. Please do not draw conclusions just yet. I say this not because something magical or unbelievable happened. I call it ‘Fairy Tale Week’ because both my daughters kept me busy with Fairy Tales. As you can see from my posts (other than the ones on filmContinue reading “Fairy Tale Week”
