The Abandoned Filter Man


Lesson learnt

This picture was taken during a recent family trip to Italy, on the way from Ancona to Rome.

There were twenty of us on that bus. Yea, twenty Indian people with one Italian driver.

Poor driver.

Italy was beautiful and I definitely will go again. But this time, with friends.

*Note to family reading this: I really do love you guys. But one at a time. Or in smaller numbers, at least. 

Rain rain come again

I live in a country that barely witnesses any rains. Let me put it this way – rain makes headlines here. Most of us who’ve been in this place for years, find ourselves waiting for the rains all year long!


This is a photo that I took during one of the first rains we had in Abu Dhabi last year. It started to drizzle as we were driving back home from Dubai.
Falling asleep to the sound of the rain that night was the best feeling ever.

There’s several things I can think of doing, if time stood still for a moment today. But it would definitely depend on where I am and who I’m with.

If I were at home, I’d run down and grab the little stray kitty that hangs around our building and bring her home. When time unfroze, I’d say, “awww kitty followed me home”. And my parents would be forced to keep her.

If I were at work, I’d draw on my not-so-favourite colleagues’ face with a permanent marker. Or give them a not-so-nice haircut.

But if I were with someone I truly love like family or friends, I’d ‘inhale’ the moment. (Probably take a few embarrassing pictures of them, if the moment lasts too long and I get bored.)

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

On second thoughts, I might just take a nap.
