with my nose held high ...


I held the lift for him, and he stumbled in, slick with sweat and short of breath.

A jogger, yes. But not too committed - it was easy to see; the generic t-shirt(no sweat-wicking); the full length trousers .. (who wears trousers when exercising in the Indian summers ?) .. and then as my eyes traveled down, I saw it.
Canvas sneakers !
Blasphemy.
I couldn't help but smirk, thinking about my top-of-the-line Asics Kayanos, the kind of shoes that you should be using when you mean business.

The same Asics that have not been taken on a run for more than a year.

leke prabhu ka naam,

... because that's how the antaxari used to start, and I hope this new stint here continues for some time.

... because how else could you start the day - if you lived at a place like this, lorded over by the Kanchenjungha ?



No wonder, in all our tales, the Gods resided in the Himalayas.

to new beginnings ..


The winter morning sun, apart from warming the chill in the bones, is good for one more thing - 
It makes everything so bokeh-licious !




Wish you a Happy New Year !
May you shine forth. Always.

its time..


A new morning, 
.. or a new year. 




Its time to shake off the dew from your wings; and fly off to something new.

Some beginnings are worth waiting for; worth waiting through a long, dark night ...
