October passed us by very swiftly here. I didn’t write much because I couldn’t seem to be able stay on track after our long road trip. I’m trying to get back on an old routine, shuffling between taking care of the boys, blogging and writing my novels. This is absolutely confusing, and when I get

A Friend of an Introvert

When I was in school, my sister mocked me that I didn’t have any friend. I grew up weird. Well, I was a tomboy who went to the woods after school and played a lone ranger by myself. I didn’t like to be around people, and I was a square peg. I spent most of

It was a holiday so I was allowed to sleep in a little longer. I loved cold air coming from the windows in the morning. It made me realize how lucky I was to be home. I could hear traditional Isaan music trembling in the air. The village community building had been playing the songs

Life Update 1: I can’t Cook

I’m trying to savor the comfort of rainy season as much as possible. To be honest, we can’t really call it rainy season anymore. It’s cloudy, gloomy, mysterious and cozy, but there aren’t enough drops of water to make the soil wet. We are on the way to winter, another of my favorite seasons. I’m

Imagination is Kids’ Best Toy

Imagination 1

We haven’t bought any toy for Yaseen for months now. It’s not that he doesn’t want them at all, but when we make him think about value of things he brings into his life, he understands that he doesn’t really want more stuff. When he asks for new toys and we refuse to give them,

Get Ready for Monsoon 1

Rainy season is here in Pune. Although the rain is so little in the city, but I heard that it rains heavily in the mountains and hill stations. Finally we can have the water back in the lakes, and our farmers can sow and grow our food. Rain makes everything so alive. I can picture the

Be a Conscious Kid

Stuff from the trip 13

We gave our son Yaseen a Samsung tablet to play with since he was little. He is 7 years old now, and he’s going to be 8 this August. God, how time flies! He is going to be taller than me in a few years. Anyway, the 5 years old device has many problems so

How Kids Start Cooking

Kids Cooking 1

Sometimes I am amazed by how kids in this generation are so dependent as compare to how I was in my childhood. I’m not sure if you will agree with me, but about 30 years ago, kids had more freedom. At the age of 6, they could go play quite far from home unsupervised. In

The Best Gift Ever!

Best gifts 1

A few weeks ago, after I discovered Minimalism, I started to declutter my home. I gave away clothes and got rid of a lot of stuff. Can I tell you something? It feels so good detaching myself from most of my processions. Do you want to know what kind of stuff we threw away the
