I am amazed by the fact, that this time I was away from the blog for one full month. Not only did I not write a blog post but I didn’t read any of my favorite blogs either.
My cousin’s wedding that I had been enthusiastically writing about all of June went well and I am aware I was expected to write a post on that. But here I was, gone off the radar like a plane in the Bermuda Triangle.

The good (or bad, I’m not sure) news being, no one actually missed me. But, I am determined to get back to my blog, no matter how long a hiatus I give to blogging, I am back. Yet again.
For sake of posterity and sanity (because I have a truckload of topics to write about) I’ll let this post become a mishmash of what all had been keeping me busy.
My cousin’s wedding was grand. But this wedding came to me like a gust of strong wind, shaking the roots of existence. I wasn’t quite prepared for the lessons I’ve brought home from the wedding. It took me quite some time to gauge the depth of these. This has been one of the major reasons why I had been avoiding to write anything on the blog. (I have finally written about it here.)
The lessons I learnt will be talked at length in upcoming posts, but one thing I noted was, money still makes the world go round. If you’ve got a bag full of money, life is a happy ride, if not, you better be prepared for a back-breaking bumpy ride.
It has been many years of emotional suffering for me, which I am hopeful will end someday soon. I have been through many bouts of depression in the past few years, but still, I have successfully managed to keep going, resolving every big or small issue in my life to ensure my child doesn’t have to go through the hell I have been through. I am trying my best to make that happen.
I have accomplished another major milestone in this direction. Please expect a password protected post on the same.
The schools have reopened to much relief. The summer holidays with Pari were fun but very exhausting. In the whirlpool of non-stop madness that ensued every day, I had almost lost myself, my routine and yes the strict lifestyle watch. Though I had given in a number of indulgences in the past one month, but my determination of staying away from carbohydrates and regular exercise has stayed on. Strong.
Luckily, I have not regained any of the lost weight, but I do not have any impressive stats to share as well. No worries on that front because I have myself started feeling heaps healthier, fitter and cheerful ever since I started exercising regularly like I have been doing all my life.
The freelance work I do has taken a backseat because I am too busy sorting many pending issues in life. Basically, my life has become chaotic, leaving me craving to catch some sleep. I haven’t managed to sleep more than 5 hours any day lately. More so because I have too many unfinished tasks at hand and not because of stress.
The only accomplishment I have had in the past 5 years is slowly learning to cope up with the pain of the past, successfully forgetting it and moving on. Battling one issue at a time. The current phase of my life is among the final battles I am to fight for complete closure of my past. Pari is growing smarter by the minute and the many questions I have been dreading since her birth are here, waiting for me to answer them honestly yet sensitively.
The one thing I have done in plenty is cooking. Though I didn’t
bother manage to click many photographs, but experimenting tasty recipes has been the high point of the past two months.
This is just the tip of the iceberg because a lot has happened and is going on in my life. All of those are soon going to be poured on this blog. Stay tuned and drop me an email with a password request when I post password protected posts. This time I’ll share password only on request, to avoid spamming people who have long given up reading this blog because of my frequent breaks.
