Bringing happiness!

Photo shot on my phone @ small gifts that I treasure

In today's world of instant messages, instant coffee, instant food, instant loan, instant relationship, instant success, life moves pretty fast. If we don’t stop and look around once in a while, we might miss it. Sometimes we are so caught up in the destination that we ignore the journey. I am no exception. I have been there.

At 37, having worked as a software developer for more than 10 years, I strongly have realized that life's most meaningful things aren't the things that are obtained through technology. I am not an anti-modernization or an anti-technological person. But I strongly have come to a realization that the faster we progress the more we understand and appreciate everything that is old.
Dreams, Goals and working towards them are going to be there always. They are not running away. But it is equally important, I would rather say that it is more important that we slow down once in a while to capture the simplicities of our day.

Today, I decide to make these little happy notes to capture the moments that make life worth living. Now that I have an anonymous identity as Aneeksha (someone who brings happiness) I will keep adding my LITTLE HAPPY NOTES. :) Who knows at 80, I might be cherishing these little happy notes that made my days?

The kitchen I fell in love with!

It was a cloudy morning, as I watched the sky through the balcony window after getting up. I hoped Mr. Sun to be a little kind to spread his shine that day and rushed to finish my morning miscellaneous work. By 6:15 am, I checked my mobile to find a missed call. I did not bother to call back since I was already on my way to the lady’s house who had called up. I reached her house by 6:30. am. She was busy finishing up her morning stuffs and took another 5 mins and then got into the passenger seat of my car.  “I called you up, and then I called your land line. Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

Bengaluru Calling! the pull factors of migration.

(Migration to Bengaluru - how the problem of population due to migration be solved was a topic of assignment for our creative writing class. Bangalore being home for me this is how I look at it.) It’s not every place on earth where bright sunlight lashes on the face and the cold breeze chills the body at the same time. Not every place can exercise diversity. From early morning variety dosa to late night smoke breaks; From temple walks to bike rides; From pool side beer to traffic in the burning sun; From non-stop chats to serious weekend talks; From street beggars to IT jobbers; From theatres to multiplex cinemas one can see extremes in any aspect chosen. Such a free city is ‘Namma Bengaluru’, and that is why a lot of people hope to come here. So, evidently there are many economic, social, and physical pull factors why people migrate to Bengaluru.  The first thing is a ‘brain-drain’ of IT hub. However, Bengaluru is not only IT capital but also capital of aeronautics, automot
