Are you addicted to blogging? Get tested…

Last week sometime I was browsing through Indivine posts at Indiblogger and found a blog called “The Saga” by Shruthy Haridas. She happens to be in the medical profession. After I did my happy dance, I browsed over her site and found this fun little game/quiz “How much are you addicted to blogging?” As you know, I am addicted to blogging so I had to take it and as predicted I am 81% addicted to blogging. Here is my result:

I thought maybe you guys would like it too so here is the link “How addicted to blogging are you?”

Comment down below to let me know how much you are addicted. Maybe, we should all go to BA (Blogoholic Anonymous) meetings together. 😀



Vitamin D- Quick update on my previous post

This is just a quick update on “Do shades really matter?”

In the post, I wrote Indian girls/guys were told not to go out in the sun because the skin will become darker than it already is. The problem with this is, how are we going to get our vitamin D. In a country like in India where it feels likes summer all year long we assume we are getting enough vitamin D. That is not the case. Moreover, darker skin has more melanin, which protects us from UV damage but in doing so it decreases sunlight absorption leading to vitamin D deficiency. Read the full post »

Do the shades really matter?

Recently, I went to watch a Tollywood (Telugu) movie with my brother and his friends. It was almost an hour’s drive from my brother’s place. We grabbed a bite from a restaurant on our way to the movies. When we were eating, I had a crazy and frustrating conversation with my brother’s friend. Though I did not know what to make of it, my idea that society is filled with hypocrites was just reinforced. Let’s call my brother’s friend “A.” Read the full post »

Thankful for: Recovery and heart to heart talks

It’s been a long time since my last “Blessings” post and so it is time to remind myself what I am thankful for.

Firstly, “D” fell sick last week, and thankfully, he recovered and doing well now. He missed me so much that he caught flu – R effect. 🙂 I think he has been a big monkey staying up late into the night playing video games or browsing and taking advantage of all the “me time” he got. Therefore, he did not finish his homework in the weekend and got really little sleep throughout the week. This probably stressed him out, and he fell sick. Hopefully, he learnt his lesson and will stop being a monkey. 🙂 Read the full post »

The first day at the new place…

Read this for a flash back : Then, we landed. So, how did it all go down? Defeating my biggest enemy ever.  The big move.

The next day was a Sunday, which is the day before Vinayaka Chavithi.  We decided to perform the Ganesh puja that evening as my brother has to work on Monday.

Vinayaka chavithi comes around August- September every year that is three months into an Indian school year. Kids place their new books in front of Ganeshji and pray to him to bless them with a fruitful school year. I happen to believe that Ganeshji is the reason why I did well on my education until now. The first year I came to USA, I continued with this tradition and performed Ganesh Puja but then for the last four years I have not been performing the puja for several reasons. Read the full post »

Then, we landed…

Then, we landed. I mean the flight. It was a short flight under 50 minutes. All I did was finish the complimentary coffee that the kind air hostess brought me. When I asked her for a decaf coffee she inquired “how many cream and sugar?” I said three cream and six sugars. To that she exclaimed and said, “ huh… so you want little coffee with your sugar.” Little does she know that it is my birth right to have little coffee with my sugar as an Indian. 😉 I reached my brother’s place even before “D” reached home, the efficiency of human innovation. 🙂 As I looked out of the window, the landscape below looked absolutely gorge. There were a lot of trees and at places, the land extended over the waters. I could see lot boats at the dock, looked like the scene from the TV show “Fairly legal.” The lead character in the show Kate Reed lives on a boat.

I got out of the plane and had to wait at the baggage claim. It worked out well because my brother was running late. I wonder what kind of brother runs late to pick up his sister? 😉 I gave him an ear full about it, need to show who the boss is? 😀 Read the full post »
