Move on....Time to shift

Shifting or change are more or less the same words with a thin line of differentiation .  Both disturb or so to say challenge the normal course of life . And are at times accompanied by highs and lows .

It could be anything - a change of city due to family movement , change of country due to planetary movements or simply change of house due to a big house in waiting .

It could also be changing your status on FB or updating one on twitter . It can include a positive attitude towards life from tomorrow or a negative outlook towards the perils of staying up late at night.


It all boils down how you take it . Recently , of the many changes that keep on going in the ecosystem around me ; we took a decision to move our home and shift to a place where - we had no choice but to move in. In short - came all the wise words of people who are accustomed to changes ans shifting . Believe me , in today's world shifting and that too shifting homes is a big task .

First of all as Indians we don't want to let go off anything . So we make sure that gift which my mom's aunt gave for me is still intact and is with us till time . Another thing as Indians we all are fond off are - books - .Word of wisdom - we never knew when we were born there would be a day when all of use would have our own library of sorts . One mini truck actually had only my books over the years . Gosh !! I studied so much ..

Then you have the most important component of any home kitchen . This is the place without which you can't do zilch . It's like a sky without a sun and the best part is this is the domain which takes the maximum time to settle down or get up and running.

It's not a easy job and I always wonder and salute our folks in the defence and civil services who move every year from one part of the country to another . It's good to say that you meet different people as you cover distances but shifting every year may be quarter - I am no game for it .

But , can you life in world without change . NO. Change is an inevitable part of our life . It is  bound to happen . Just like the time keeps moving , people move in and out of your life and a person is born and dies and then again takes a rebirth - it's nothing but a change .

On that serious note , happy to hear your views and your shares of changes and movements.

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

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 …
