TajMahal or RamaSetu ?

As I grabbed a glass of water  in one hand this morning, the other logged into WhatsApp to quickly catchup on updates from groups. One thing that caught my attention was a forward from my Engineering class group. One of them had forwarded the below pic:

I had an ear-to-ear smile. I pondered for a few minutes and gave a quick response - 

"If you ask me, one wanted to show off his love and other wanted to protect his love. However there was lack of respect and trust respectively which is base of love.

So if you ask me, either both qualify or both dont. 😊 or we might have to ask Mumtaz or Sita. 😂😂😂

I at times fantasize and wonder what would 'Ramayana' look like if it were written by a female. 😁"

Even after the reply the subject had been running in the background. As they say, to get over it, one needs to get through it. So here I am jotting down the thoughts that waved up my mind. 

Though majority of people in and around me very clearly had and have been taking religious stands when such topics surface, I don't know how and why I was never influenced by it from a religious perspective. Something that I have never been precisely able to figure out. My decisions were/are never religion based. (Yeah..... its a different thing that at times I bend down to religious based decisions just to keep peace around my people.) May be (I am assuming) because, I mingled and grew up with people of different religion at school. I have seen them may be better on a certain aspects. May be I should be thankful that God has always linked me with kind people that I have not seen the darker shades. Whatever be the reasons, I have no regrets. Not that I am not religious. Not that I am not proud of my roots. But that my religion deep down teaches us to respect all other religion(s) and not put others down to uplift mine. Having said that, what caught my background-thought-space was "Which would be the best monument to represent love?" 

As I thought over and over, the only answer that surfaced the waves is interesting! May be it does not abide by the rules for qualification to be the best monument :D but my heart only accepted this to be the possible best over and again - THE HUMAN BODY! I do not want to reason it out here, but rather leave it to the reader to ponder over. For me the human body would be the best monument to represent love, so I better respect it. :)

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
