Celebrating moments

They say you ought to enjoy the moment. They say pictures are less important than the here and now (speaks in my husband’s voice…). But they also say memories are meant to be celebrated (the other they). How does one remember anything these days? With all the information overload we have every minute of every day…

I say taking pictures is one of the more important things you do. Writing about them too. Luckily for me, this is a break from ‘work’. I’ve always loved documenting things.

The most beautiful things are not associated with money;
they are memories and moments.
If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.

Pictures can be unforgettable, while depicting nothing out of the ordinary. 

Maybe I have to admit – there’s no need to take quite so many. Not just because the cloud is finite even though it appears not to be, but because it’s so much easier to travel light.

Home away from home

We are very lucky to have two beautiful countries we call home. This summer, we visited the UK for the first time as a family of four – and it was every bit as wonderful as I’d imagined it would be. Coming back can be nostagic and make us miss the loveliness on offer here, but equally makes me realise how fortunate we are to live the dream in Bombay.

More about our time in London, Basingstoke and Cornwall soon… leaving you with my favourite family picture taken in the garden of my favourite home in the UK.

Simple monsoon moments

I for one love the rains. When we lived in the UK and everyone would greet each other with a ‘horrible day’ when it was raining, I was all chirpy and happy. Many of my Brit friends said it was just ‘odd’ to be so cheerful when it was raining! But here in Bombay, everyone loves the monsoon season. And rightfully so! The monsoon staples here are tried and tested. Hot chai, something spicy, muddy puddles, flooded roads and Khandala!
