- A Hundred Little Flames by Preeti Shenoy – Somehow reading a Preeti’s book means you are sure to encounter a relationship twist. The main reason why I don’t prefer reading her books! I like the way she describes other things! Be it about scenic Kerala or touring Pondicherry. The only thing that kept me going was the relationship between a grandson and grandfather. It reminded me of my maternal grandparents. Especially my grandmother with whom I share everything without thinking twice.
- The Wedding Tamasha by Sudha Nair – A genuine read because of the similarity to my story.
- One Indian Girl by Chetan Bhagat – I think I will not read Chetan Bhagat’s books anymore.
- Ganesha’s Secret: Food alone does not satisfy hunger by Devdutt Pattanaik – It is entertaining to read books like this. I love Lord Ganesha and somehow see him as a good friend. He looks cute, right? I always read myths and facts about Indian Gods. The story about Kubera and Ganesha was something I shared with my brother-in-law’s son during our story time.

I found time to catch-up with friends this month. They make my world brighter than it is. I learn a lot from them with everything they share. After I met my girls, I am refreshed. We used to sit under a tree and relish our lunch prepared by our mothers. Now, after these many years, we decided on a potluck and enjoyed the food we prepared under a roof together. We chatted like there is no tomorrow in the little time we got without kids. It was nice to see the kids getting along with each other. Looking forward to more such meets.
Being a housewife isn’t easy as one thinks. Well, that one used to be me too! It was my very own choice to leave my job and stay at home for the first three years after marriage. Though I used to regret my decision, I am slowly getting the hang of being the housewife. Though people have changed it as a homemaker to make it look better, I still prefer the former. Taking care of the house – right from doing the chores to knowing what is where when anyone needs it to doing all the inside and outside work, it is hectic. Since its a transition phase for me before taking up another job, it looks like a good long term project that opens up new horizons for me. After all, home management is one lesson that helps us for a lifetime wherever we live. I am a learner and that helps best here in learning to handle comments passed every once in a while.
