Rajamayong; the land of Blackmagic

  Just like any other kid, I grew up with the thought in my mind that I would go to such trips whenever I would watch Uncle Scrooge in the Duck tales. This ambition of going on an adventure and finding hidden treasures always stayed with me even though we went on a lot of family trips but none adventurous. Time flew and in my 20’s I got opportunities to travel extensively for work both

Memories of a bygone era waft in with Ray’s Pather Panchali

It was Satyajit Ray’s birth anniversary on 2nd May. I thought I’d spend the day watching back-to-back Ray movies in his tribute. Since my husband and I are ardent Ray admirers, we have a collection of all his works—movies, documentaries, books, short stories, et al. As I sat down to make my selection, I found myself avoiding Pather Panchali — yet again. I usually end up selecting either “Mahapurush” from Kapurush/Mahapurush, Poroshpathor, Aranyer Din Ratri,

Mom: My Life Coach

It’s my Life Coach, my Mom. She would draw me out

Relationships: Evolution of the Parent Child Relationship – By Rajat Soni

 “Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.”-Anthony J.D’Angelo Our relationships begin with parents. They are the first people with whom we form an association of love, respect, and commitment. It is a given that we love our parents.

When I was a little girl….

Who could come now,
