Random Disconnected Thoughts

Remember this? Well, it happened to me yesterday. Yes! I forgot to pick up my laptop bag thinking that hubby had picked it up when he walked to the car in the morning. And then realised that my bag is not in the car only when we were a couple minutes away from office 😦 Dropped the little fellow in the daycare – told my manager that I am going back home to pick up my laptop bag (Total face-palm moment and very unprofessional), grabbed a couple of sandwiches as breakfast and hubby drove me back all the way home to pick it up. Waste of 2 full hours, a hugely bruised Ego and a smirking Hubby… Gah! *Still pulling out the 4 hair on my head.


Watched Satyameva Jayathe episode-2 on Sunday night. Thankfully was staying up finishing some office work and needed some noise-so had the TV Switched on. Wonderfully conducted show.Plenty of times I had tears in my eyes as I watched the participants share their stories, shuddered at the thoughts that crossed my mind. Spent a sleepless night thinking about it. Made me want to quit everything Im doing in life and spend the rest of it with the little fellow-every waking/sleeping moment, so that he stays untouched by all this. Chaperoning him everywhere until he turns 18 and knows he can defend himself – Well, thats just motherly instinct. Cant possibly happen in real life everyday can it? I HAVE To give him space to spread his wings, have to let him fall-but I sincerely hope that we are there to cushion any such falls, to just ‘BE’ there for him, hope that he comes to us for even the tiniest thing he wants an answer for-so we can keep him safe! God! After that episode – Im breaking out in cold sweat just thinking of how many people he would be exposed to, how many times he needs to make a judgement on his own – and how soon would the society force him to grow up…

Reading books like Crazy – Some that I finished:

The first 2 books of the Shiva Trilogy – Am enjoying the fact that these portray Shiva as a human and how he bacame God. Though some things are beyond logic and difficult to relate to scientifically – its an interesting read. Looking forward to the third one now.

The JD Robb latest (Nora Roberts) – In Death series. – Read them for some futuristic thriller πŸ™‚ Am hooked on to it since its first book and this is already the 35th or something…

Β The Thirteenth Tale – I think it was suggested by Seema and loved the book.Had been quite sometime since I had read something ‘on the edge’ and it was a dark read.

The Twentieth Wife and Feast of Roses – I first read The Shadow Princess – the last one on the trilogy and then ordered the first 2 on Indiaplaza (Check it out, equally good discounts as Flipkart). Read them back to back, marvelled at Nur Jahan’s prowess and cunning, was transported back to the Zenana and the Mughal Reign for about a week.Was living in it dreaming of those gardens, roses,women, horses and fights.

The Mistress of Spices – Not a bad read – I thought it would keep me as captivated as “The Palace of Illusions” but not really. It is a very slow read and I had to push myself to read some descriptive narrations.

Jodi Picoult – The Lone Wolf. Finished in 3 days. Though not as emotionally draining as her other books-kept me interested enough to read through the whole thing. Pick it up if there are no other options – I would say!

The Secret Garden and Gentle Falls the Bakula – both half read – have to complete them now. Wasnt impressed much with either…

Any new book suggestions? Have marked Sangi’s review, RMs review and The Bride and SnS reviews – any more?


How becoming a Mommy changes everything – I LOVE mangoes and wouldnt share it with hubby either before. Now, I cut a mango thinking I will pack it for dabba and then instead pack it for the little fellow, thrilled that he is enjoying it as much as I am πŸ™‚

On a hurried morning, Im running behind him to get him ready,brush his teeth and cribbing about his lack of apetite-simultaneously forcing some idly in his mouth, and then slip on the shoes to run out to the car, head already 10 steps ahead at work and then I hear mom shout “How many times should I tell you to have your milk, its all gone cold”, and I see she is running behind me with the glass of milk! Sigh! Mothers…


Weather in Bangalore is suuperb these days, tuesday was a huge hail storm with tiny hailstones strewn all over the black mat in the office and then the weather cooled down. Loving it now. I only regretted being in office and having to act all dignified without being able to rush out to pick up those stones and pop them in the mouth – would have surely done it if it were home and ofcourse made the little fellow also enjoy it!

Happened quite sometime back. Standing at a signal, I was admiring the fingers of a lady sitting in the neighbouring car-lovely long fingers and pastel painted long nails – thought maybe she is an artist – she has such pretty long fingers.Cribbing that I have such ugly stubby fingers and nails. Hubby says “You are an artist too” huh? “You drew designs on my heart!”

  1. Aww..the weather really brings a lot of romance into lives! Tough commute back for one bag, without which the rest of the day wouldn’t have been productive, I bet.

    You’ll be there for Chutku. You already are. And there’s really no choice when you’re interested in being engaged. 18? Where did you leave the remaining years?

    My uncle said – once you become a parent, there is no worry free time in your life the entire time after! Thought he was a bit over then, hitting hand on head in agreement now! πŸ˜€

    1. Im just thinking that by the time he’s 18 I wouldnt have to chaperone him everywhere – Im sure though he would hate me for those 18 yrs!

      Yeah! Remember my Chikkappa saying the same thing when Chutku was born – now you’ll have plenty of reasons to loose sleep over – trust me, him not sleeping is the simplest reason of all! At that time I thought “Oh! I’ll sleep all night once he begins to sleep” – but thats highly unlikely – huh?

  2. AWwww! the last one is so so cute πŸ™‚

    I liked the Shiva trilogy as well..waiting for the next part πŸ™‚

    LOL on the mothers thing πŸ™‚

  3. Awwww for the last line !!!! Sums it up all i guess πŸ™‚ And i read ur other post too after reading this one and couldn’t help ROFL !!!! I have read the first of the Meluha series, how do u find the 2nd one? Captivating enough to cruise through ? And i so love to eat hailstones !!!!

  5. Like every one else mentioned here, the last one was too cute! πŸ™‚

    Even on reading about the Bangalore weather, I am feeling the taste of the hailstone in my mouth already. But on peeping out of the window, all I can feel is the scorching heat. Nothing else! 😦

    I am very apprehensive about reading Jodi Piccolt given the kind of subjects she handles. And I am currently reading The Twentieth Wife. Hooked on to it, as you say. Will book mark the rest!

    And come what may.. Mothers are mothers! πŸ™‚

    1. Oh! I was in that Mughal land until I finished the 2 books – had to literally drag myself out of there! πŸ˜€

  10. Aiyyo @ 1 πŸ˜›

    Ditto @ 2 LLT…I felt terrible after that show and was constantly thinking of chirpy being around strangers in school/day care etc 😦 How paranoid we mothers can get no ? 😦

    wow so many books lady,wow wow! I love Nora’s books. Indu, I have to pick her books,so many people recommending her…MOS? I have seen the movie so have no inclination to pick up the book somehow…GFTB was a okay read for me too..in fact all Sudha Murhty’s books are generally okay only..me thinks! Looking forward to read Shiva Triology…what you don’t read m book reviews???? bad girl sob sob sob 😦

    1. Hey Reema. Thanks for dropping by. And if the ground is clean – like at home-then the hailstones are clean too-so you can pick it up and eat it-have done it as a kid and would love to do it again… You must try it sometime πŸ™‚
