Don't be no Judge Judy!


I am totally tripping on the 'Judge Judy' bit right now, thanks to a particular Facebook update regarding GOT's Khaleesi and the late Prince Oberyn of Dorne. Yes, the poor schmuck died due to bad judgement. 

Anyways, back to 'not being' Judge Judy. We all need a little bit of faith, don't we? We are quick to make judgements and categorize people. This includes me too most of the times. But the man I live with shuts me up with a simple answer - "What you gotta do with it? You be. And let them be!"

Wise. Lol. So, here is an interesting video I discovered on Youtube while searching for videos showcasing amazing Salsa. I was looking for a particular video that featured two fantastic kids grooving to the beats. But then I chanced upon this video and my eyes welled up. It is a wonderful that the 'still-young-at-heart' Paddy, 80 years old, displayed a talent for Salsa that beat the shit out of everyone at Britain's Got Talent. Moreso, because Simon the jerk happened to yawn and pressed the buzzer to present this disappointment even before the magic unraveled. He had to apologize (read - eat his bitter words) as Paddy won everyone's heart and Amanda pressed the golden buzzer, sending the dainty dancer and her partner directly into the finals.

Must watch this video to reinstill faith and of course for the fab dance routine!

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

Celebrating Navratri? Stop now as we have no right to worship the female form...

Today my mom asked me to go get fall bidding done for her new saree. Navratri has begun and Durga Pujo is just around the corner. This year we are planning to go Pandal hopping on a Saptami instead of an Ashtami or Navmi to avoid the jams and the crowds. I will wear a saree too and my Punjabi husband will tag along for the delicious food.
In a multicultural household like mine, most festivals are a big deal, especially Navratri and Durga Pujo. But in the hullabaloo of festivities, we don’t stop to think of its essence – why do we celebrate Durga Pujo or Navratri at all. To celebrate Ma Shakti – a prompt answer from my mother. Navratri is a celebration of the nine stages of womanhood – a tribute to the power of the female.But to us commoners, it is a festival of dancing to the tunes of Garba or dandiya or Bollywood music. It is our turn to wear our best clothes, head out in the night, meet family and be merry. And once, this is over, the female form goes back to being what they always a…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…
