Monsoon Pinks and Blues





A place where rain strikes and strikes rain. There, in eight words you have a perfect description of Kerala.  I got to patent these words because plagiarists of all kinds are out there waiting to flick ingenious one-liners like this one and post it in twitter as their own. Well, that was some felonious modesty in display to start with.
Monsoon chivalrously visiting Kerala in the first week of June, just as the weather office forecasted is stark irony. It is nevertheless a pleasurable experience. From advertisements of umbrellas on the telly to sprouting of tiny little mushrooms, the whole of rainy season is a blessing. Sipping hot green tea from a cozy balcony with wet daisies and balsams smiling at you is certainly bliss.

On second thoughts, I reckon it would not be so delightful for people living in huts on hilly areas, for those living near seas and for those making a living out of farming crops. So many people die due to monsoon-related incidents in Kerala. Some reports even state that Global Warming is one of the major causes of heavy rainfall here; some say there could be an advent of El Nino effect this season. Lightning attacks, of course are a natural calamity but think about people without shelter, think about the crops damage estimated at crores and crores of rupees every year. It is anything but bliss, isn't it?

Think about it!

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"




"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…

Johnny Bravo

When I thought about the alphabet J, the first thing that struck my mind is one of my favourite cartoon characters - Johnny Bravo. Although I was too young to understand his gimmicks, flirtatiousness and his pick up lines which failed most of the times, here are a few things I absolutely love about this character:


His totally awesome yellowy, blond-ish hair
His ‘beefcake’ physique and the way he carries himself with the tightttt black Tee, the blue pants and the ever so cool sunglasses!
His cute stupidity when he tries to impress girls and gets beaten up in the end
His unscathed confidence is totally epic
His style and karate chops make him the coolest cartoon character ever!


I have failed so many times trying to sketch Johnny boy during school days. But I always adore him, for; he is the coolest dude and my favourite *blushes*

I would like to thank all my earnest and patient readers for spending time in my blog. It does mean a lot and it definitely inspires me to write more (I totally can&#…
