When I read the news headlines on my Google feed, Australia asks Turkey to extradite top IS terror suspect, I was wondering what a turkey (bird) is going to do about it. It took me a while to distinguish between Turkey (Country) and the turkey (bird). I blame it all on the Thanksgiving tweets and messages that I have been reading and the pretty bad headache I woke up with and the one that still is not ready to let go of me. Have you confused words like this? What is your excuse 😉 ?
Got this notification today. 4 years already? Wonder how the time just flies by. And just in time for Thanksgiving weekend 😉
I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who have been with me on this wonderful journey, who have inspired me, who have taught me, who have supported and encouraged me and who have visited my site and left a mark in the way of comments/likes/visits. Like any journey, I have made friends here, missed people when they left the blogosphere, shared quips and jokes and what not 🙂 I am glad to be here at this moment and hope to be here for some more time.
Not too far to look like we are moving away from one another
Not too fast to drag me with you
Not too slow to make me drag you
With enough space to let us breathe
And enjoy the ‘us’ with considerable ease
I don’t know what the heck that is. Is it poetry? or is it prose? I don’t care. It is just an expression.
Yesterday was a pretty interesting day and the above text (let us make it generic) was the outcome of some serious discussions that happened during the lunch with my close friends, where I was telling them how I feel a relationship should be (a marital relationship I mean). What do you think?
Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day. Too many things happened. I get tired today thinking about it. All good news, though 🙂 I got a new laptop in my office because the old one was out of warranty. When I had to copy all the contents from the old one to the new one, is when I realized how much junk I have accumulated over the 5 years of using that laptop. Irrespective of the fact that most of the content are in their respective folders, there still were enough stuff lying around everywhere and I didn’t know where to categorize them. It was almost the same effort as vacating a house. I took three days to get things backed up, find out the programs I had installed and installed them in the new one, make sure I am set and nothing is left out etc etc. Phew! And then I realized that as of yesterday I completed 13 years in this company. Again, Phew! Looking back it doesn’t feel like it even though the journey had its own ups and downs. It’s going to be very weird for me when I leave it. But I have been here when I have to be, have enjoyed myself, worked smartly and hard enough. The journey will go on and it might even take me to more exciting places, who knows 😉 Am I looking forward to it? Of course, Yes!
Editor’s note:I once had a couple of million regular readers, but I sense those numbers are down by a few hundred thousand, thanks in part to my recent stream of politically charged material. I just can’t seem to help myself, so I’ve decided to seek some outside assistance. Voices is a new occasional series in which Americans express their feelings in the wake of the presidential election and what many perceive to be a drastic change in course for America, and not for the better. Today, we’re again stepping outside America, this time to India.
I am not sure how many of you know me, but I am an Indian woman, currently residing in Bangalore, who isn’t very much interested in the statistics of politics, but definitely interested in the impact it has on the common man. In India we follow a parliamentary democracy, and for…
