Tidbits with T

Being very confused with the process of choosing the topic for T, I settled to write 2 liners for some words in T.


He stood next to me to check if he is taller, the day we met. Being tall or short didn’t matter to me, till then!


It was an addiction and my world revolved around it. I stopped it for 4 years and suddenly my world revolves around me!


A special place where I connected with the night sky, watching the stars tumble over me. Nila soru, moonlight dinners were enjoyed in our terrace, as we visualised sitting by a stream, lying on the grass and watching the moonlit night!


Hug them, touch them – they are alive and can feel our touch. “Were you my friend in my previous birth?” I wonder!

Thought process

My thoughts are like waves, not one but many, arising from different sources with a common destination – me! Attention to the “breath wave” has lessened the thought wave and I seem to be floating (many times) rather than struggling to swim!



This flower has a story to tell
About its mother plant
And how it came to bloom…

The plant has a story too…
About how it was part of a bigger plant
The harsh way in which this branch was broken
How it felt barren and naked
Devoid of leaves
Feeling dried up
Till it found this pot
And the wet soil
To hold on
To nourish itself
To make new leaves
And to be the mother plant now!

The pot has a story
Of how it was made
And how the potter sold it…

The balcony has a story
Of how it hosted this garden
Filled with these beautiful pots
And the plants, of course…
Of how bare it was before
And now the scene has changed…
Of how it enjoys the sunshine
The breeze
The rain that splashes
And the joy of being clicked!

Every single thing
In nature
Has a story
If only we can listen!

I have a story too
To share
Of how I took up a career
In Engineering
And then left it
To embrace motherhood
And after two decades
Of running around the mill
Trying to figure out
What to do with my life
I found a hold
In Yoga!
I went there to heal myself…
Now I have learnt
To be a trigger
A nudge
A seed
To others
And help them
Find their own healing!
I am a teacher
And a student
Of yoga
And how it is a part of our lives!

You also have a story
Am sure of it…
Which you can share
I am a listener…
