Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The words of Willie Wonka reverberated in my mind ” Tremendous things are in store for you, wonderful surprises await you!” As I walked into the thicket, full of excitement as we entered Mason and Co chocolate factory in Auroville. It was a beautiful bungalow in Auroville, nestled in the trees all around. Mason and…

From Fibre to Paper

It’s been a long time since I felt so calm and connected. It’s a wonder how life can go about and we, in our rush just trudge along without pausing and taking the time to connect with ourselves and just feel the earth around us. And so, it started, a quiet day in Auroville, with…

Blog Party

So it’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks, starting internship as a doctor and getting back to Crossfit. It’s been so many highs and I’m just grateful for everything that’s been happening recently. After 4 and a half years of struggle and pain, it’s definitely a very needed breather! So this morning I woke…

Strawberries, lazy mornings and freshly baked bread

I woke up today, very relaxed something I haven’t felt in a very long time. watching the birds in the garden and admiring the newly bloomed orchids , I sat and savoured the sheer peace that filled my being. After a hot cup of tea, perfectly steeped I might add, I was craving to go…

Castaway

Nautical winds brushed against the winding branches of the Casuarina trees, gently urging them into a slow dance as they swayed  to the whistling sounds of the maritime breeze. An aura of quiescence was cast over the air, as if an invisible net, enveloping the atmosphere. Sandy beaches that lay in wait for the gentle…

Emergence

And finally a sense of peace fills my heart, as I sit in front of this majestic sea. Finally on holiday. Sitting by the beach at Koh Samui. It’s been an eventful month, with my final medical exams and my dearest granny passing away. It’s not been easy having to cope with the loss of…

The Inner Spark

And I sit under the tree, dimmed lights, the fairy lights twinkling and sparkling away in celebration, and as I write this, the carol of bells plays in the background. Christmas has always been my favourite festival of all. I love the festive feel and cheer that appears during this season. We woke this morning…

Awaken

The inky dusk filled the night sky. A shade of umbragenous ash filled the air.  A fire ablaze, flaming and powerful, it added a certain amorious warmth to the gelid air, slightly subduing the crisp winter temperatures.  I lay deep in slumber, snug and warm.  And just as the steeple bells rang, the first blush…

Ellude 

Trapped, I look around at the invisible bars that confine me.  Unable to move, unable to explore, we lie in our dimunitive spaces. Leading our lives, incarcerated and plodding along in this pedestrian lifestyle.  A convict in our own skins.  My mind however, the ever elluding escape artist, it plays truent with the constitution of…

Noel 

Snowflakes, they fall from the sky, performing a freefall dance, to the tunes of the carols.  Architecturally multifarious, a permafrost fills the air. Limpid and transpicuous.  That frozen vapour like little diamonds, crystalline, they glisten, as they drop from the sky.  And as they kiss the ground, almost fluid like they fall and coalesce to…
