August August

A song was playing in the car and my wife asked which was this song. That was the moment I was waiting for and said, "That is BTS and this is the World Cup special". My wife, who believes in double validation asked my younger daughter, "Is this BTS"? It was music to my ears... Continue Reading →

Miles(50)& beyond…

I noticed that I had not put out a blog in the month of July. I was wondering what was missing in July. One of my friends asked my wife, " Is Vinod not writing these days?". It seems I was missing in action just like the way tomatoes have vanished from burgers, chaats, and... Continue Reading →


"I have this book, I have not read this book. How is it?" "You still carry books around, I know you from the old days, You and your philosophy!" "It is good that you are carrying a book, what is that book you are reading?" Three different people commented as soon as they saw me... Continue Reading →

Two Good Movies

It was a Sunday afternoon and I was repeatedly mentioning to my wife that we should see the "2018" movie in the theatre. Thanks to my travel and weekend preoccupations didn't make it.

My paternal grandmother was very close to me and she left for her heavenly abode when I was doing my graduation. I remember her for her die-hard determination in raising... Continue Reading →

2023 so far

"Is it already April? I can't believe it!" said my younger daughter while we were coming back from her dance practice. Like always I shared a pearl of wisdom from the times, "You know time flies". She nodded in partial agreement and moved on. That made me look at this fascinating element of time and... Continue Reading →

This week has been especially challenging for me with one of my best friends, mentor, and guide passing away. I was trying to recollect all the past memories. Suddenly I noticed that...

Good 2022 Vibes

" What are the things that give you good vibes?" A close friend asked me last weekend. I was ready with the answer, " Coffee shops, Book shops, Sports shops, walking with backpack and headphones listening to music, meeting friends, and finally writing". I had experienced all the things that I had mentioned and I... Continue Reading →

Fun in the Sun

It was one of those trips where I got into the back seat of the car and I settled down. I did not have to bother with the parking once I reached the destination. The destination on that day was my younger daughter's school and it was the "annual sports day" after a gap of... Continue Reading →
