The purpose of this trinity has been iterated to us over generations, describing Brahma as the creator, Vishnu as the preserver and Shiva as the destroyer.

While his mother’s first question on a call, classically is – if he has had his meal, followed by a balmy conversation, ranging from his daily-schedule to his future to his girl and simple joys of life.

Mulling Over the Mulled Wine at 40 (and Its Many Joys)

December 31, 2016

It was around Christmas and I happened to be in London for work. After a long day, I went wandering along Thames with a resident colleague when he walked into a place while I sat on a bench watching the river flow. He came back with two warm glasses of mulled wine, handed me mine and wished me Happy Christmas. We had talked enough through the day and I was…

Your writing tugs, pulls, pushes, erodes, caress and puts it right there. At times it's the context, a word, a phrase, a joint, thread, picture or just a feeling that it seeds. Jiffies- springs from all things which are small and insignificant to the rational mind and lead to a brighter and beautiful within. Let the stories flow for the lands it crosses in its path just flourishes and grows!! Encore for more and more't get enough!
