Over the Weekend…

It's official…My mom is going back to lead her 'own' life…To her credit, if there is one person other than my lovin' hubby and ever positive grandma that I should be thankful to, then it is her. Afterall, she left behind my dad and uprooted herself to a different city for nearly ten months…No one else I know of will do that for me…My son adores her…Whether it is my failure or my mom's success or neither, the fact remains that my child's world revolves around my mom…and I was totally ok with it…Unlike lot of working moms that I know of, I never wanted the best of both worlds…I never expected that my mom will be the major caregiver, but as soon as he sees me my son will forget all about her and spend all the rest of the time with me…I am happy as long as he is happy…I firmly believe that if you want your child to consider you 'God' then you need to be there for him/her…at least when they are really young…afterwards, they may appreciate the sacrifice that …

What I Read...

I am not the kind of person who comments on every post I read…When I initially started blogging, I used to comment, but then realized that the blogosphere works on certain unwritten rules… most bloggers don't like you to disagree with what is written, even if you do it politely and in a civil manner…And I don't see the point in writing a comment, just to say "Oh, that's soo true, I fully agree"…Unless you can bring in a different dimension to the discussion what is the point of discussion at all…And then ofcourse, there were this whole bunch of 'if you leave a comment on my blog I shall reciprocate by leaving a comment on yours' which is ok, if you have a commercial blog …I don't have a blogroll…I am not sure why…Primarily 'cos I have seen the quality of blogs vary with time…the content varies..sometimes the author just shuts shop…And even my interest varies…If I am vain, I can also say that I don't want anyone to feel obligated to include me …

On Top of the World

Am feeling on top of the world! I just received a courier by office mail, and opened it expecting some official communication…But my boss/friend had sent me a book and a magazine. I read a lot, but never buy books – I am the kind who would rather pay the cost of the book (or in many cases even more) to the library in terms of lending fee, but never spends the money to buy a book…However, I still love the smell of a new book…The first thing I do when I get a new book is to smell it…Ah, the pure bliss of knowledge! At one point in my life, I wanted a huge library, but after getting associated with my coldly rational spouse who has feet firmly in the ground, I accepted that spending money on books that you won't read more than once and then stacking them up in a cupboard was a waste of money, time and even space. But still, there is a child in me who gets thrilled on getting a gift! And gets super thrilled, when it is a book…after all, while peers were dreaming of being pilots and tr…

New Year...New Beginnings...

I had a post titled "The Year That Will Be" in my laptop, which I lost when the battery died on me...I don't feel like writing it all over again...It was about resolutions and how I plan this year to be a year of excellence...Where I shall stretch myself on all realms and see what I am capable of...Anyway, I suddenly realised that a month has gone by without any posts...The posts get formed in my head, but never get translated into paper...
And therefore I am going to try and post atleast 5 posts in a week...I always believe content is what matters and not frequency, but somehow I feel the urge to try this out...to see if I can stick to it...
