Hello! Thanks for visiting TP! I started this blog when I was traveling on work, away from my family. In 2005. Yes, I’m that old. Life went on. The blog was updated religiously and comments were responded to at lightning speed. And then sometime around 2012, a miracle happened. A long-awaited little miracle that changed my world and put everything in perspective. This would explain those extended periods of inactivity on the blog. Or it could just be laziness. Hopefully, it’s temporary and not fatal. Well, life is settling down to a fixed routine now, thanks to this wonderful thing called full-day school and if ‘routine’ sounds boring, clearly, you haven’t been around children and/or you are a child yourself. We can kill for routine, trust me. There will be some bursts of activity, when I wake up and realize the blog is full of cobwebs. Let’s just hope we have more of those and less of the laziness. One can only hope, though.

So there. That’s about the person writing the blog. The blog itself has undergone a lot of changes since 2005. I’d like to think I’ve improved, grown, matured, etc. I probably also lost some sanity somewhere in between, but that’s ok. I’m still good to go for another 10-15 years.

If this was not entertaining enough, do check out my attempts at being creative @ Prose and Verse. The ‘About’ page there is not as much of a ramble as this one, and yes, thank God for small mercies.

Finally, if you’re looking to copy or lift material from here without my permission and/or without credits to me, thanks for the attention but please feel free to get lost. I’m not even going to act nice to you. And of course, you will hear from my lawyer even if you go hide in Timbuktoo. And stop snickering, I do have a lawyer.

  1. Ooh! This is going to take some getting used to. I love this place. It’s like entering a brand new shopping store for the first time.
    I’d better update my blogroll.
    I don’t have a Hobbes stuffed toy (but I do want one ever so badly)
    I do however, have three lovely Calvin and Hobbes T shirts.

    You’d never get them in Hyderabad. Pity you left Bangalore.


  2. You think so too? I felt like it was some new swanky showroom too! 🙂 talk about great people thinking alike 😉

    And hey, I never left Bangalore. Never even got there to begin with. Hyd rules!!


  3. Hi Priya,

    I have been to your blog couple of times before but never managed to leave a comment. I love the new look of it, but your old one was just as wonderful. I think the reason that makes me come back to read your blog is because it is so refreshing, you always put a smile on my face with your posts 🙂 Pls keep them coming.



  4. *takes a bow* Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Nav – 🙂 Glad you found this worth coming back to. Means a lot!

    Princess – Did that apple pie I sent flying to Bangalore find its target? 😉 Well, I was aiming at your dining table (to do a neat touchdown, and have a fork and knife appear miraculously beside it), but don’t be mad if it finds your face instead ok? It’s apple pie. It can land anywhere, no?


  5. Much honored! and you’re the first one (ok, fine..second one) to say you like my book reviews. I personally cannot stand them one bit (could be because my benchmark are those reviews one reads in the Literary Review in The Hindu Sunday editions) so thank you! 🙂
