You will remain my little QUEEN!

(My elder daughter enters her teen, and like most teens she hates lectures, so I thought a poem dedicated to her might do better. ;) Here is a dedication for my darling. Love you always.)

It’s 2019, the year you enter your teen;
Please understand that, the life, is very mean,
But you will at all times remain my little queen.
You may fight, you may be right;
You may cry, you may try;
You may criticize, you may apologize;
You may cheat, you may retreat;
You may make issues of silly things;
You may not be completely open for problems that life brings;
You may love, you may hate;
You may party being hearty;
You may stay awake late nights, experiencing different sights;
You may be jealous, you may be furious;
You may have conversations deep and light;
You may think and act, you may ignore and react;
These are all part of the age you are in.
One day all these will pass away; so, make most of what you have.
Never forget to stay confident;
Stand up for what you think is right, that will make your future bright.
Make a lot of friends, and be open for all the trends.
Life is short to regret, take chances;
It does not matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop.
Life is long enough, if you BE YOURSELF.

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
