The Busy Bees who Keep Buzzing

Life has been (un) fair to all of us, at some points. 
But then that's what life is all about. 

Often during my "me times" I happen to think deep about some of the people that I have met so far in this journey. They amaze me. Some were broken, some were looking for casual sex, some were desperate to be with someone like them, some keenly wanting a worthy relationship, some who were still trying to figure out what is it to be loved and then there were some who just swung by thinking let's see how this works and what if it really does work~!

We take so many turns and twists that we get exhausted in the process & then start blaming life or the people in this life. At the start, all we are looking is for a target to blame things on. Not even thinking for once that we were equally responsible for our actions and our thoughts. 

Then there is this digital world we all live in and get connected with. A simple like from an unknown stranger & a comment from a known enemy c…

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family & friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.

Inside Meena Bazaar

I am sure many of you have would have taken some time out to visit a placed called as Meena Bazaar. Before you jump the gun on this one, hold on!

This place in my terms is a boutique chain where women ( and females ) are genuinely happy. And so is the staff. 

The interesting range of clothes, for all occasions with options to spoil you are all available. The staff here are old running members who in less than 2 minutes can actually predict if you are going to buy anything or not. If yes, you are treated like super cool celeb- tea, coffee or a cold drink and you have it all. If no, they will make you buy any which way.

Though for me personally, this place is a challenging option. What do I do here ? You can't keep on staring females around you. The service folks look into your eyes and smile and say - Are you paying by Samsung Pay, sir. Get ready!



During one of my recent visit I made it a point to notice what were the males doing. While some were just browsing on their smartphones, oth…

Hug someone- Today

What happens when you hug someone! They smile. Not that easy.
Depends. On people to people, choice to choice & time to time. 
During one of my many seminars I got this question from a young boy & I had to think since the context was not just hugs but more about the emotions involved.
Often when you have nothing to say or talk or share with someone you give them a hug. You also embrace people when they are on extremes – either very happy or depressed or 1000 thoughts in their head. 
Moments of joy also merit a hug & when you want someone to know you are there for them, give them a hug.



And then there are folks who actually can read thoughts. Sometimes I wish you were in my place just to know how I feel. This holds a lot of relevance.
After all, explaining your feelings to someone is never easy.
And then, pain changes people, it makes them trust less, overthink more, & shut people out.
Next time when you hug someone, say some words of #share & #care along with.

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …

Delhi Diaries & More

I got a severe firing from one of my dear followers & a fellow blogger for not updating or as she says posting my thoughts on my blog for a while.
And I told her, politely, that the entire fault lies with our stars & Anju Modi :)
Yeah, I have not been in Delhi for a while now for  variety of reasons but you can't say NO to Anju. And I, as you know, am a creative person & anyone with a similar passion gets my eye & time. Anju  hosted a beautiful winter wedding collection or red carpet as she calls from her 'Infinite Knot' series & it was splendid to say the least.
That's not all. I have lost count on the number of weddings that I have attended all through November-March and on-going.  
To top it all, a while back, friends and fraternity celebrated the launch of the Anita Dongre Grassroot store at The Chanakya. She presented a capsule collection for Fall-Winter, to mark the launch of the new store. 
The Chanakya has become the country’s leading luxury mall…

Happy Birthday - 2 times

Happy Birthday ! These two words always make you smile- when you say them or hear them. That's the power.

Some people are genuinely happy having you by their side in the journey of life.

What's even more interesting are the relationships that you develop with such people. Some unsaid and some unheard.

I have 2 people whom I have known for close a decade now. And the best part about it is, we haven't ever met in person neither we speak that often. In fact, the only time we speak or talk or connect when are wishing the other person 'Happy Birthday' . In a nut-shell we only speak twice in a year and yet we are in touch. We are usually the first to wish and share birthday greetings.



Strange! I honestly don't have an answer. This struck me over the weekend when on of these person was having a birthday and I wished. And we ended up chatting how we have managed to stay in touch and never miss a birthday.

What exactly will you call such a connect?! I don't know, may be …
