Sharper Than A Sword - Talvar

" Ma! Can I sleep in my room, tonight "? Prodded my 5 year old angelic daughter. No ! Came a firm reply from me. But, "Ma! I am big enough", please, she pleaded. " Of course ! You can" said hubby shree (that's what I call my husband), taking her in his arms. After putting our darling daughter to sleep, Hubby shree walks in, rather upset....why can't you get over 'that case', it's been years, he said. ' That case ' referred to the Arushi Talwar's murder case, which was still firmly etched in my memory or for that matter everyone's memory. So was the impact of this killing, that I never let my baby sleep alone, even years later.  "What if ", was always on my mind....  It's not that the Nation had not witnessed a more sordid murder before, they had. But, this was the murkiest unsolved murder in recent times.  It  was the summer of  '08, a gruesome double murder, captured the imagination of the entire

In love with my threadcasa pouch

Sometimes, you get a small little gift, which becomes a prized possession, you don't want to part with..... Has it ever happened to you?  Well, as I had told you earlier, there is a lot happening, on my blogging front.....I became a part of TWC. It is a community of travel wizards, new and old, having the common passion for wandering and living life exploring our exotic planet. We had our first meeting on a beautiful rainy day, in the last week of July. There, among other gifts, was this small little pouch that stole my heart, the moment I set my eyes on it.  I am a great admirer of Indian textiles and crafts and this pouch was a great example of how you can incorporate Indian stuff in a contemporary style. It is made of cotton, in ikat print and has some subtle thread work on it. It is a utilitarian stuff and can be used on a daily basis to keep your mobile and petty cash, especially when you run errands or go on your morning walks. I donned it for a brunch that I attended wi
