The Stairway To The Room

Well……. I clicked this picture for no apparent reason but when I saw  it for the first time what came to my mind were two very famous songs –‘Stairway to Heaven’ & ‘The Room At The Top Of The Stairs’. One is an all time favorite & the other is MY favorite. The stairs in the picture lead to my room. At the end of these stairs is neither heaven nor the room where all the “stuff” that happens in the song so its actually as useless as the picture. And if you want to get philosophical about it then…

A Recipe for Disaster

This is an incident which happened about 7 years ago but it is one which we still talk about and have a laugh everytime we get together! It was somewhere in november when I was still busy with exams & all of a sudden I got a call from my buddy Levin & he was like “dude come over to my place for lunch tomorrow”. I was excited “Whats the occasion?” I asked. “Nothing special, I am cooking” was his answer. For a second I didn’t know what to say. “You there??” he asked. I said “yeah yeah, U cooking????”….

Dry baby, happy baby….happy mommy!

Only a mother can truly tell how important it is for a baby to be dry and tummy full!Here’s how much a dry baby can make a difference in your lives. The following post is in the words of Dr Nishita Fernandes, my wife. I woke up at 7am, stretched my arms and legs lethargic as ever, had a quick look at my awfully huge tummy and finally managed to wiggle out of bed. Somehow I lazily dragged myself to the balcony to soak in some early morning sun. They say it’s good for health. Being 9 months pregnant accompanied…

World Cup -Then and Now!

Stuart Binny walked out to the middle. He felt insignificant at the massive Melbourne Cricket Ground or the MCG, truly an historic venue. Yet, there he was, an important member of the team, one of the chosen 15 out of a billion to represent India at the ICC cricket world cup 2015. It was an important match and he had finally gotten a chance to show his skills for his country at the biggest stage of them all. The stadium was packed and noisy. Not for one minute could he believe that he was playing in Australia, it actually felt…

All in the Mind!

I wanted to write a post about positive thoughts. That’s when my wife told me about this wonderful experience of hers which really touched me and brought out a lot of positivity. So here goes. The entire post is in her own words I stood beside the water fountain facing the entrance to the huge multi speciality hospital that I was going to be a part of for the next three years. It was my first day as a post graduate student in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, my subject of interest that I had gladly chosen myself. Yes,…

I, Creator

The world was surely being destroyed bit by bit. There was water everywhere which seemed ready to gulp down every bit of land visible . Everyone was frightened and running helter skelter to protect themselves. I picked my Pepsi can and began sipping it in awe of the amazing graphics of the movie 2012 as I lay on the sofa. Hollywood definitely has a way to make blockbuster destruction movies I thought to myself. The government heads in the movie were building some kind of ships to save the chosen few and the elite were using their money to book…

Mother Of Mine!

She broke the bread into two fragments, and gave them to her children, who ate with eagerness. “She hath saved none for herself” said the sergeant “Because she is not hungry” said the soldier “No” said the sergeant “Because she is a mother” “Don’t worry you will win for sure, I will pray for you” she told me. I was very nervous and felt like I would throw up anytime. I was in class 10 back then and was contesting the elections for the SPL (School Pupil Leader). At that time it was like contesting for the PM elections. Being…

India vs Pakistan on Twitter!

India vs Pakistan matches have always been an intense affair, be it the  hard fought matches on the field or the politics off the field. The most intense of the matches were probably the one’s played in the deserts of Sharjah. The matches these days between the 2 countries though played with the same passion lack the intensity of the matches yesteryear. Nobody can forget the famous Javed Miandad jumping up and down at the batting crease to poke fun at our wicket keeper Kiran More or the Aamir Sohail-Venkatesh Prasad incident of the 96 world cup. The latter still…

Being Social

Year 2004 I got back home from college and ran straight to my desktop PC. I first switched on my CPU and then the monitor and logged in to my Orkut account via Internet Explorer. There was a new testimonial waiting for me there written by my friend Prashanth and I was excited to read it though I had been bugging him to write one for me since weeks! It would show on my Orkut profile page and everyone would view it. Satisfied with what he had to say about me I then went onto check if I had any…

Mirror Mirror on the wall……..

October 1995 Riya checked her watch. It said 8:29 AM. She would make it on time to class after all! Having stayed up all night preparing for today’s exam she had somehow managed to oversleep and was now making a mad dash to the examination hall. The clock struck 8:30 just as she reached the door. It had been a tough two weeks for Riya just as it had been for the others in her class. The university exams were on and finally today they would be let free like a bird out of a cage. She looked around and everyone seemed to be mentally preparing themselves for that…

This One’s For THE Girl!

“Most people who meet my wife quickly conclude that she is remarkable. They are right about this. She is smart, funny and thoroughly charming. Often, after hearing her speak at some function or working with her on a project, people will approach me and say something to the effect of, you know, I think the world of you, Barack, but your wife, wow!” – Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope She looked awesome when she danced. I could see her jiving to the number Mambo Number 5. The guy dancing with her seemed to be constantly out of beat but…
