Latika Sengupta #Worrior Woman

  This is a real life story and very close to my heart. Here 'Dida' (picture above) is my Father's Aunt. It has been almost half a decade that anyone has entered the room. Be it the dusty shelves or the rusty ceiling fan, everything still has a touch of care and affection. Dida has... Continue Reading →


Mackinac Island (part iii) Missing out joy :)

When was it? The first time I gave up on something? The feeling of fear and failure crept in? As far as I remember, it was in class 6. My mother had asked one of my cousins to teach me to ride a cycle. My elder sister could ride it smoothly and so did most... Continue Reading →

The American dream!! ( 1 min read)

Today I had to cancel my library visit as one of my Indian neighbors wanted to visit my place in the afternoon. I couldn't decline her, in fact, I didn't want to decline her. I know that spending an entire day alone is difficult. Far away from home when you have no one to talk to,... Continue Reading →

Technology-তে পটু বরের সাথে লং-ডিসটেন্স বেশ আরাম করেই উৎরে গেছি.....কিন্তু এ তো মা! অফিস-এ কম্পিউটার স্ক্রিন-এর দিকে তাকিয়ে... Continue Reading →

All’s well that ends well :)

It all started yesterday evening when I found a tub of cottage cheese in my fridge. Throughout my life I was living in the illusion that cottage cheese is equivalent to ‘paneer’; I presume that is the case with most of the Indians. Anyway, so when I opened the tub, unlike the solid object we... Continue Reading →
