Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost...

Traveling to India seems not so rare or unusual these days, specially when you have parents living there. Based on the time and need I got my tickets through Air India.
When the agent was giving me the tickets, I asked Air India? Is it a good airline as I have never taken this airline in my 19 years of stay outside of India and I have heard some not so good reviews.



The response was, yes Ma'm it's a three to four star..yes, when there is a need we all go for it. My journey was good from San Francisco to New Delhi, though this was first time that I was taking a direct flight with this long stretch of journey. The service was good but as expected I was only able to watch one movie after that system got hung. 
There were hardly any such movies that you would jump to watch, yes to kill time I saw Azhar - a movie that was made to show that Mohammad Azharuddin former Indian Cricket Captain should not have been baned from Cricket for match fixing. 
Frankly speaking, Azhar should have jus…

It was a mesmerizing evening and an emotional one too. Being emotionally connected to dance and music it has always knocked me out by reminding my roots. Probably that was the reason that I got opportunity to support Sangam Arts, which believes in Arts and Music that will bring every human close and be in harmony.

I had an idea about Mosaic America, more over working closely with Usha Srinivasan the founder and president of Sangam Arts, I know her dream is to bring multicultural arts together on one platform. But to watch the performance really gave me goose bumps. I felt it's so beautiful that no matter which part of the world you come from, music is alway soothing and it brings out your emotions very well no matter what language you speak, what kind of food you eat or for that matter what color your skin is. 


For the first time I felt human civilization is so rich in arts and music and if we use this for our benefit this world would be a better place. I feel more proud to be conne…

Life is so unfair!!!

He loved his dad like every kid would do As he was taking every step of his beginnings With his dad by holding his hands He needed his dad's help and guidance In every happiness and struggle times When he came to know he is going to loose  His dad to cancer, it was a shock! He got so sad that he went into depression A new life that is yet to see the world Got lost somewhere...! He wanted someone with whom he can share Yet he didn't know who would understand his pain He found a friend and shared his life in bits and pieces The friend gave a listening ear and supported morally He took some strength and tried to face the world As he looked around, he saw people doing all bad things to their health Some he saw smoking, some drinking without thinking  And he asked life - why you are so unfair? My dad never smoked and drank casually Yet you took him away from me so quickly Look at these people who are doing all harm Yet living and making other living beings suffer Why? Why? Why? Life is so unfair!!!

We talk about nature, water, land, fresh air, confidence and freedom but everything comes with a price.
I remember my time when I moved to Canada and was renting one of basement apartment where I was to pay for my stay and food. One would imagine that if you pay you have no other obligation but that’s not how it was. I used to respect and treat the owner and his wife as my parents. I did everything in that house as if it’s my responsibility. This nature of mine gave me a tough time to deal with my day to day things. When I was looking for a job, I was told to help with them in Jesus work. The owner was a priest who would make me translate his stories and poems in other Indian languages so that it can reach to those many people and that many people he will be able to convert them into Pentecostal Christians. Initially, the way it was put on me as a task I thought I can ask them if my rent can be waived but then I was told I shouldn’t expect something like this when I am doing god’s work. I…
