Quote of the Week

She raised her arms passionately. "I hate God for making him die."
She stopped then, and looked at him doubtfully. "I shouldn't have said that - that I hated God."
He said calmly, "It's much better to hate God than to hate your fellow-men. You can't hurt God."
"No. But he can hurt you."
"Oh no, my dear. We hurt each other, and hurt ourselves."
"And make God our scapegoat?"
"That is what He has always been. He bears our burdens - the burden of our revolts, of our hates, yes, and of our love."

- Agatha Christie | The Burden

Currently Doing..

Counting the days:


Yes. It is all here. The subtle change in the air. The sudden rush of cool breeze brushing past that drop of sweat trickling down the collarbone. The cotton ball clouds. The sun is looking one shade brighter, and so is the sky. The bamboo barricades, the hoardings, the lights. It’s time for Her to visit us again – along with the whole Team. Pujo is less than a month away. We no longer feel the ‘himer porosh’ in mid-September, thanks to the screwed up pattern of climate. We have no chilly autumn here, only humid summer. But the smell of Pujo is unmistakable in the air.

Indulging:


In the luxury of ayurveda. Of all the Kama ayurveda products I have started using this one is my absolute favourite. I love the pungent aroma of herbs soaking through my skin after every shower. In my very busy daily schedule of self-loathing I enjoy this 5 minutes of pure bliss of mollycoddling myself.

Reading:


Hyperbole and Half. This is not exactly a new blog, not a running one either – the last post dates back to 2013. But that doesn’t make the content of this blog any less interesting. Depicted through illustrations made on Paint, the posts are mostly about the author’s childhood incidents, recounting in the most deadpan comical way.

Time travelling:


From 500 BCE to nineteenth century India. Another one from my ‘unfinished’ pile. Bought it two years ago, but then stopped midway. For no reason whatsoever. It’s time to finish it.

Going awwww over:



Toddy the golden retriever and his little sister Maria. I follow hundreds of dog accounts on Instagram and this duo from Brazil is my most favourite IG people. I never miss a single photo, single video of these two breaking all records of cuteness.
No. Still not ready to even cherish the idea of having kid(s).

Making lists for the upcoming trip:


This is unequivocally my most favourite part of any trip.

Watching:

Google image

Forever summer with Nigella. And trying to figure out which is more alluring – the food or the chef.

Listening to:

Mirzya title track. Folk with a classical touch? Check. Tragic love story? Check. Undecipherable lyrics? Check. (My Hindi knowledge is pathetic) Not to mention an unusually attractive Harshvardhan Kapoor. I am already in love with Mirza Khan and his legends.

And last but not the least:

Scratching my head in quiet desperation thinking what to write for my next blog post. I fear I'm turning into one of those featherbrained blogger chicks I despise the most.
