Ubuntu - I am because of you!

 (Sunday 17th of January. It was one incredible day for me - A family lunch at "Sattvam" (where my mind was in complete control of otherwise tempting food and stuck to raw food); I was at my fitness high almost covering 18 Kms for the day; A "YO" status on one of my adorables; Meeting a new friend and a mentor for my haiku learning; Most of all my elder who is in her teens, who otherwise is in her shell, either attending online classes, or completing class notes or watching her favorite show or busy with her friends' circle, suddenly turned up to me while I was attending the younger and trying to tuck her up for a good night's sleep. She just hugged me tightly and told me "don't ask me why, what, how and stuffs. I love you. I really really love you." I was touched. I hugged her back "I too love you and I am really sorry. Sorry for having beaten you twice. I know you have it deep in your heart that I havn't beaten the younger even once but you have had twice from me as a kid. I could have handled it better but I lost my patience then. I am sorry." Soon came the response "For something you did years back you are saying a sorry now?". I smiled "When your 'I love you' can come untimely and unreasonably, why not my apology?". That was followed by a few memory recalls and laughs. Here I capture that moment in a few words, dedicated to my elder.)

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
