A Thanksgiving surprise

Out of nowhere Aarush asks me yesterday "Acha, can you come to my school tomorrow?"Its not usual of him to make any demands, maybe I have infused my practicality gene into him that he doesn't make an effort to put forward any demand.

I Binge-Watched Seven Seconds on Netflix: My Review

I have a problem with art that imitates life so well, it leaves us with the message that there is no WINNING. It punches you in the gut and reminds you that even when you think you might win, you will lose. And that is my main problem with Seven Seconds, a drama offered up by Netflix, and created by Veena Sud.

Comment on watermelon lemonade by Veena
