Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Cold and the Bengali

Winter is setting in, here in Calcutta.
I know, because last night I saw the first semblance of a monkey-cap.

@ess: I LOVVVVVVVVE winter! Guess it's because I'm a winter baby, born admist snow! Yes, gotta admit...am loving the change!

@ 'A': welcome! Yes, the chapped lips and heels have brought have made sure the makers of boroline are feeling rich.

@still: Yummo! It's still not cold. In the evenings and early mornings, there's that slight nip in the air, whcih makes some of us feel alive and vital while some of us reach for our woolens. I, as you can guess, belong to the earlier category! ;)
