And they flew away …

The nest is empty and the chirping is no longer heard …

Just like watching your kids move away from home, to embrace a brave new world…

I really miss the company of these little Sunbirds, but, it gives me great joy to see that perseverance prevails …

Nature is a treasure trove of positivity and gives us hope when we are down.

I am so thankful to these little birds as they helped me survive a stressful phase in my life …


Perseverance Prevails …

I am so happy to let you all know that the Sunbirds are hatched 🙂

So good to see that baby birds are fed by the mother bird and father bird alternatively, shared responsibility, right? 🙂

I have been watching them making nests for the fourth time and they made it this time.

Please find the link to my earlier post on their nest …

Waiting to see their first flight …


Beauty All Around Us: My Experiments with Videos

Lock down days have been quite monotonous and the best way to escape from boredom was spending time with my camera in our garden.

I was always interested in photography but stayed away from videos as it really tests your patience while shooting as well as editing.

But, the result is very interesting and satisfying.

I am just starting with videos and hope I will be able to share some quality content in future.

Please bear with me for the time being 🙂

Thank you for your visit and watching the video 🙂


Reflecting back on Soviet Times in Kerala

Great to see my friend Steve of ‘Life in Russia’ hosted a guest post on my childhood memories of the erstwhile Soviet Union. Thank you so much Steve 🙂

Life in Russia

Back in May of 2014, he and I created a post for “Life in Russia”, it can be seen here. I’m very pleased to share with you his thoughts and feeling about his life in Kerala during Soviet times.

Happy New Year: Just Be Yourself…

JustBeYourselfDear Friends,

Wish you all a Very Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.

It’s been a roller coaster year for me and I couldn’t interact with you all wonderful people, as much as I would like to.

But, as I watch the last sun set of 2015, over the Arabian sea, I am much relaxed and confident.

I really hope, I will be able to stay longer hours in blogosphere and more frequently in 2016 🙂

‘Just Be Yourself’ and have a great year ahead … 🙂
