One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name. Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder… Continue reading Too Busy for a Friend…
Its been pretty long since I have blogged. A friend asked me recently, “Why have a blog at all if you don’t post regularly?”. Hmm. Looked a valid point at first. But then I thought, why NOT have a blog even if I don’t update it regularly? How does it matter? In any case, I… Continue reading Why I don’t blog more often
Meha, Heena & Mahi 18th May! 4 years ago on this day my life could have gone for a toss. But the great Almighty had far better plans for me. Mahi & Meha were born on this day and their mom / my wife Heena was re-born after a fight with death for over 8… Continue reading Happy Birthday M3!

Although the operations by themselves were not major ones, anaesthisia was somewhat tricky due to his health generally and a by-pass surgery that he had undergone 4 years ago.… Continue reading My dad’s fine

The recent well justified uproar all around the world by Muslims because of a cartoon/caricture of the Prophet Mohammed made me think about the muslims I know, see and interact with in my life. My experience with them has been pretty pleasant. Here’re some I can remember at present. 🙂 Members of Bohri Community frequent… Continue reading My experience with Muslims
Its time to replace my old and lovely Nokia 6610. I am using it since 2 years and must say it was value for money. But now the battery is weak, talktime is low. One call makes the battery bar jump from full to half and after another call I start getting the low battery… Continue reading I need a new mobile
There’s something seriously wrong with my family. 🙁 Some days ago, my wife sprained one ankle and a toe was fractured in another leg! She is still recovering from it. Its very difficult to take care of 7 month old twins with both legs under pain. But she is somehow managing it. Some days back,… Continue reading When will all this end?
