In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Red Pill, Blue Pill.”
I love to cook – but only sometimes – not all the times.
Food is such a big part of our lives that can’t remove it completely – BUT
I would like to have the option of Pill for hectic days, work days, out in the woods with no food – just pop a pill and keep going.
When I feel like having fun, some colors – Celery, Carrots, Beet roots, Green Peppers, red peppers and tomato and cheese and colors and flavors and textures …I want to cook and enjoy the other options also.

Few weeks ago I tweeted this from my twitter account: “Women/Girls today are afraid to speak of women’s rights coz they are made to believe that #Feministsareugly & #Feminismisawful. This is #whyweneedfeminism”. That very instant I was bombarded with tweets from ‘haters’. I almost had a twitter war with a couple of people on the topic of Women’s Rights, for they vehemently opposed the movement. While I am a firm believer of the fact that everyone is entitled to their opinion, the reason most quoted for ‘hating’ Women’s Rights Activists did not seem rational. One told me that Feminists/Women’s rights groups are working too hard to pass ‘Sexist’ laws. Another person told me that the only

This is amazing and inspiring.
I wish to make my blog like this.
I am here to spread love, share happiness, learn some and teach some.
I love nature, serenity and silence.
I believe in forces of nature and being one with it.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Dear Mom.”
These days when I am around your age when I could understand some like 50s – I find myself quoting you all the time – my Amma use to say this and I will say a quote or something.
I have admitted to myself and others that – I don’t even have half the qualities you had:
Strong, Courageous, Bold and Beautiful, loving and compassionate, fearless, spiritual, kind and so much more…
I find myself wondering – how did you do all that – without much education and money – and I learned that your biggest power was YOU – your ability to make friends by caring and supporting and helping anyone and finally trusting the divinity to take care of it all.
You make this proverb true – Some one plants the tree and someone else eats the fruits…
I am eating the fruits of love which you planted in many many hearts…wherever I go people remember you because now I look like you and they say how nice you were to them and they pour there love on me. I am learning and trying to do the same – Plant the trees which will give fruits for my children and everyone around it.
I feel you are always with me…you have sown the seeds of spirituality in me and you would have been happy to see my growth.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Snapshot Stories.” – Our ancestor village – Tiwaripur, near Kanpur – UP, INDIA.
Visited after 40 years and found almost nothing much changed except for few…
- Roads were better – so we can drive car upto the house entrance.
- Toilets inside the house – so you don’t have to go outside.
- Biggest change – everyone had a cell phone!!!
- Electricity still cut for 4-6 hours everyday – so lot of quiet time – which I enjoyed.
- Good time with family and relatives. In a village almost all are related to you in some way.
I wanted to share my travel experiences and pictures.
I hope this blog helps me re-collect the moments and weave the story.
