I was in the French part of India this long weekend for a highly anticipated holiday.
It had all the right blends of beach side strolling, French cafe reading, hammock lounging, graffiti hunting and sea food binging. While there, a friend posted a comment on Facebook that she lived in the same town. I quickly switched to the private message option and saw that we hadn’t written to each other since 2010.
The last message I sent her was –
Someday I will make all my money by writing
Funny. In 2015, I am!
I might drop another message to another random person with another obscure dream. Let’s see what happens!
I know this blog has taken somewhat of a ‘subtle’ negative tone over the past few months on account of life handing me too many lemons but this Friday, I went for a really nice birthday meal.
It was an Italian restaurant run by a Japanese couple in the IT hub of India who served us complimentary French sparkling wine. It has all the makings of a ‘walks into a bar’ joke but it just filled me with such warmth.
Life is pretty darn okay.
Nephew – Princess Pea was crying today when I gave her some chocolate
Me – Why?
Nephew (dropping his voice to a whisper) – I don’t know. I think she got hormones.

We’ve been shifted to the top most floor of our office building. Now, this isn’t such a big deal – considering we have been moved thrice over the past one year. However, this view is doing good things to my imagination!
What’s that in the distance? A palace you say?
