Passing thought

Just a passing thought

The world would have been a much nicer place to dwell in, had we not had a brain and a stomach!


  1. Mother Nature would have loved it :)

  2. Brain I understand, but no stomach too? What would we do then? And what would have happened to all the yummy food?
    I guess I am quite happy with both my brain and my stomach. Not willing to trade in with the Kareena Kapoors of this world.

  3. But the world dwells on these two things...

    There wouldnt be anything left to work for.. if not for these..

    The world would be a boring place to be in... no?

  4. Ref to Shiney Ahuja... maybe another body part as well

  5. @ Arv

    You totally understood what I am saying!

    @ eye-in-the-sty-in

    Yaar, pet se hee toh sara problem shuru hota hai. The beginning of all wants!

    @ Iggy


    @ Aparna

    It's not about the yummy food dear! It is much more than that!

  6. @ Rahul... in City of Dreamz

    No. I don't think boring. But then we would not have any war or nuclear war threats. We would be living beings.

    @ As the Mind Meanders

    See had we no brains, the Shiney's of the world wouldn't be able to do this na!

  7. No brains would be great, am all for it, no tummy too..hmm ok not a bad ide guess all the yuk things are because of the papi pet..What if we just had a heart and the eyes..and we were all casper like//floating feeling and more of the anti gravity floating!! I would like that!!

  8. no stomach and no brain...

    then whats the need to be here... doesnt that mean no life...?

    nice blog, i will read remaining posts later...

  9. @ Sujata

    Brilliant solution!

    @ Suree

    Well, I wouldn't say it would mean no life. It would definitely mean no greed and want.

  10. I love both of them - not trading either for anything else or for nothing :P

  11. yaar.... lekin isi liye toh brain haina.... pet ki wants ko control mein rakhne ke liye :P

  12. Nikki... how much do you think dogs think... but then again.... if we had no brain... I guess what Shiney did would not be considered morally wrong..

  13. @ Himanshu

    You don't get the point my dear!

    @ eye-in-sty-in

    yeh thoda debatable hai!

    @ As the Mind Meanders

    debatable again!

  14. @ eye-in-sty-in

    Chalo! Debate post kar diya!

  15. @ manisha

    I am so glad you agree!

#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…

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…

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…
