sign board of perception and reality

Of Perceptions, from a Chennai Bloggers’ Meet!

The thought process that kicked me to write this post today is the ‘virtual perception vs. the actual perception’ I had experienced at the meet. When we interact with the same few people over a period of time through distant modes, our minds begin to form perceptions about those few. At the meet, it was interesting to observe the distinctive differences between my imaginary beings and the real ones.

‘The Very Many Emotions of Motherhood’ – #AtoZChallenge 2017 Theme Reveal

Starting from tomorrow, please join me in an emotional odyssey of motherhood, for the next thirty days. Beginning from 1st of April until 30th April, there will be one blog post a day on this blog. And all the posts will revolve around motherhood. We all know that a mother is an embodiment of love, an epitome of sacrifice, a this of that and a that of this! Yes, we’ve seen, read and heard all the nicest things about her. However, seldom do we understand the frustrations behind her patience, the playfulness behind her maturity, the sadness behind her joys and so much more hidden emotions of motherhood. As a mother of two, as a stay-at-home-mom and as an ever-learning, ever-evolving mom, I am looking forward to share my A to Z everyday emotional rides, through my blog, in the next thirty days.

Jujubee, a Play for Children, by Adisakti Theatre Arts

I have never witnessed a live performance with this full of life before. The performance was a mix of story-telling, masks and puppet shows, dance performances with live background music throughout the play. The energy and enthusiasm of the artists were remarkable. There was never a time during the show when they paused or took a break. It was all flowing through them – that’s what I felt.

Black Money Vs. Hunger

To people who argue that we must tolerate this inconvenience for a few days for a better India, may I please ask if it’s just to ask a little child to tolerate his hunger for a few days? To me, a country’s wellness is not measured by how many black money hoarders are caught red-handed but how many little children have three meals a day. It hurts more to realize that a so-called reformation has made one child hungry than to feel good that it has brought millions of black money notes to light.
There, India fails! Not just the Government, but citizens too!

Earthquake in Italy1

Three 6+ Magnitude Earthquakes on the Same Day!

Until I did a quick research today, I wasn’t aware of the fact that multiple earthquakes occur around the world everyday, though the extent of the tremors might be varying. I was shocked to read that there have been 92 earthquakes in the world today, of which three were of greater than 6 magnitude.
