At The Waiting Lounge

It was Sid Sriram belting out one of melodious Tamil numbers. My family and I were surprised to hear Tamil songs on the radio. I inquired about it and the driver nonchalantly explained that there were multiple channels playing Tamil and Malayalam songs on the radio. Dubai continued to surprise us, even on the very...

The short vacations to places near Bangalore were getting boring. The last time we went on a vacation to some far off place was way back in the summer of 2013, when we went to Kashmir.

Vacation in Ooty – Part 2

It was funny to see a large stuffed tiger was placed on one of the rocks and tourists were charged ten rupees to take a picture with this toy tiger. I think this... Continue Reading →

Vacation in Ooty – Part 1

The last few months had been particularly hectic. Perhaps it was a combination of the intense schedule both at work and home. I really needed something to unwind and detach myself from all the fervour. A holiday away from everything was really due for me and my family. Since it was summer, beaches were ruled...
