  Mother bird triumphantly swoops onto the bus stand, her little birdie Bansi tucked tightly under her arm , fist bumping in delight as she sees the afternoon bus turn around the corner. “Just in time, she whispers mentally patting her back. Daughter 1 : ( smiles as she steps down from the bus) Ma:…

Tara was born a happy lark! Be it her new pre-school, a swimming pool or an intimidating aunty (the one with huge glasses and a booming voice, who peers down and asks Mommy whether the baby has been good or not), she had always been able to handle challenges with charm, enthusiasm and a bewitching…

There, I said it. Now it’s out in the open and can’t be taken back. For years, I have followed Desperate Housewives like my life depended on it. One might judge me on the taste for the scandalous but my focus was always on the glamour of it all. The American Dream seems to be…

My hubby has raised his arms in surrender. He’s broke. My birthday, our anniversary and Mother’s day took its toll on him and now, Valentine’s Day is the final tip over the cliffJ Roses and wine are passé. So, we decided that reading, editing, liking and sharing our blogs is THE sign of True love!…

Sometime back, I experienced “Inside out”. Being a bachchu movie and more so as a freaking mother, I instinctively thought it had something to do with intestinal germs and bacterial monsters.

    Whoa, ladies. If you think this blog is all about the oh-so special moments of motherhood, stop reaching out for the tissue box just yet. Whatever crap existed in my Limbic system (Google it!) for years in the name of emotions flew right out of the window Like Noah’s raven; never to return…

Miserable as most parents are in the first year, I read books frantically and went in and out of internet pages like the zombie I had become. And when nothing else served us, time did. The genie is finally out of the bottle! To clarify, my daughter is now officially on a schedule. Well, to…

Well, I have been married for seven years now. In this era of divorces and live-ins, many people ask us about the secret of our long and seemingly happy married life. I blush and reply “True love, I guess”. In one instance, my husband simultaneously replied  with a grin “Take- aways”. He did not get…
