NEITHER BE AFRAID; NOR GIVE UP

Seven months since writing my own blog, the Wuhan Virus that caused this unprecedented global pandemic shows no signs of letting go its grip on humankind. After exporting death and ill health via Covid 19 worldwide, instead of an apology and truth, China has added to its reputation of 'mean & untruthful big-bully' by trying … Continue reading NEITHER BE AFRAID; NOR GIVE UP

A PATRIOT KEEPS THE FAITH

Just before India's 74th Independence Day, when Chitra Subramanium, famous for her investigative journalism asked me to write a short post, I found myself honoured yet unsure of what to write. With her suggestions, I put pen to paper and wrote from my heart. The link to the published post is: https://therearehumansintheroom.csdconsulting.net/i-am-a-patriot-i-refuse-to-be-labeled-grouped-or-cornered-and-i-keep-the-faith With permission, my … Continue reading A PATRIOT KEEPS THE FAITH

FINDING NEW MEANING: PILGRIMAGE LIKE NEVER BEFORE

When I started writing this post last evening, a nation was united in collective hopes and prayers for #JusticetoNirbhaya. Despite shifting of the death penalty date 4 times by delay tactics of their lawyer, today’s dawn is bright with prayers answered and faith restored.

SACRED JOURNEY: CONNECTING THE DOTS WITH AKSHAY

I wait in a comfortable hospital, trying to write this piece, while Girish goes through a series of extensive tests spread over 3 days for his medical review. It is one year since his without-any-explanation heart attack after Akshay left. In the past week, we were disturbed by Sangeeta’s recent bouts of weakness and thankfully, … Continue reading SACRED JOURNEY: CONNECTING THE DOTS WITH AKSHAY

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE: BE INSPIRED

Kargil Vijay Divas is coming up in less than two weeks and for this generation of young people, that is the war that beamed into homes what our soldiers fight for, so that we Indians enjoy peace and safety. The Tricolour fluttering on peak after peak after indomitable courage, determination and sacrifice. So much has … Continue reading PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE: BE INSPIRED

CONNECTED BY AKSHAY: LEARNING TO READ THE SIGNS

The past few weeks have been very tough emotionally. Seeing friends battling unexpected illness, sudden untimely deaths, a spate of attempted suicides among young members of our domestic help, shocked and worried families, and my own difficulties in coping without Akshay. When at a loss of how to help others, the one person who I … Continue reading CONNECTED BY AKSHAY: LEARNING TO READ THE SIGNS
