Falling To Rise

We live in strange times, reality and fantasy is a blur. Sometimes, I feel we live in a Jumanji-esque universe-when the game is over, the world will become normal again. Forget politics or the mess made by the rich and powerful people in the world, the life I lead also seems to be crumbling around…

Buttermilk, Anyone?

This is the Jhari Waterfalls in Chikmagalur, also know as the Buttermilk Waterfalls. The name comes from the speed of the fall that resembles churned buttermilk.

The Wonders of God’s Own Country

Kerala is a beautiful state with mesmerizing views. While I didn’t go house boating in Alleppey, the sights and sounds in Kochi definitely makes me want to explore each part of the state in great detail!

Popularly known as the Coconut Island and Thonsepar, these four small islands have been formed from columnar basaltic lava. It is said that the basalt was created by sub-aerial sub-volcanic activity, from Madagascar,…

Sands Of Time

A Psalm of Life~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time


The River of Dreams ~ Billy Joel In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep From the mountains of faith To a river so deep I must be looking for something Something sacred I lost But the river is wide And it’s too hard to cross And even though I know…
