I’m Never Alone In My Walks

This time it’s at my Sister-In-Law’s place in Marthahalli, Bengaluru:

“Tell us are we one or many?”


“Trust us, hanging together is so much more fun! And, yes, we’re unwashed byTide or Surf!



“Shhhh…it’s nap time”



“Doesn’t a dash of purple make a pretty picture?”



“Poser for you: tell us if we’re right side up”



“Perhaps not in 50 shades, but we aren’t far behind”




“Don’t let them tell you soft pink doesn’t go with red…and when sunset gold too jumps in…”


Yes, it does get a bit crowded up here, but we’ll manage…”


“We may be green behind the ears for now, but not for long”



“Stop, freeze..you see the green turning into red?”

“Be it may we aren’t tall as a palm, all the same we’re doing fine”



“Another poser for you: What are we if we aren’t some exotic bird or a Halloween cat?”



“Show us a wall and we’ll…BTW Mr. Spideman cut his teeth here not to speak of the few he broke!”



“Yes, we’re different – we love our mother Earth more than the big Fireball up there”

Groom Wanted!

Yes, it would be an arranged-by-the-family marriage for reasons you’ll shortly understand and approve.

While I’ve the permission of the family to share the horoscope and a photo of the US-born-and-lovingly-bred girl, this invitation for a suitable alliance is for a wider choice and solely my personal doing, hopefully a pardonable overreach from a well-wisher. The interested may contact the family directly to take the matter forward.

Here’s the horoscope cast by a learned jyotish (astrologer):

Nama-karanam (naming ceremony), Ayusha-homam for long life and other rituals for general well-being like archana’s at the temple on Tamizh and English birthdays every year – all performed as prescribed.

More on her: Understands fluent English and Tamizh. Amiable and loving disposition. Likes swimming, long hikes, frolicking on the beach, watching movies (Tamizh and Hindi, especially Tamizh comedy). Not a vegan but loves dosa, idli, chapati, kuzhi paniyaram, murukku/chakli , thattai, bhakarwadi, toasted butter-pav, paneer, milk-shakes…but no  onions or garlic, sweets, chocolates, nuts and coffee.

Before I’m accused of advocating child marriage – Maya is 2012-born – let me present a snap of the bride and clear myself:

The girl is not cropped out – she’s the girl! A basenji-corgi cross.
