Waves of Gold

The clouds looked dark & swollen,
As if a thousand tears would flow all of a sudden,
Just then a flash of lightning lit up the whole sky,
Alarming the flock of birds flying so high.

Thrown into a reverie,
She remembered a similar night,
When the thunder had boomed too close.
And a sudden flash had lit up the hay roof.
Her pleas for help had failed
While the golden waves danced around her.
Then all was quiet.

Nights like these,
She missed them.
Wondering whether they did too.



Promises

Image
Promises made at sunset were important,

Dawn saw the light of what She had promised,

Flowers always bloomed,

Birds never failed to chirp,

Streams gushed with renewed vigor,

And the deer galloped with joy. 

Mother Nature always kept her word.

Food Review- OMG (Oh My Gorge) Resto Cafe

Image
OMG a.k.a Oh My Gorge, is a brand new cafe in the western suburbs of Mumbai. With uber cool interiors & lip smacking food, this place is a must visit on any foodie's list. Located in a quiet lane in Lokhandwala, the first look of the cafe reminded me of a European cafe. It offers Continental cuisine (both vegetarian & non vegetarian). 

And I was all set to experience the" OMG way"

Happy Blogiversary - Turning One !!

Image
Today morning, when I woke up, something urged me to update my blog. In the past couple of months, I haven't written as much as I would have loved to. So, the first thing I did was to pen something down. 
I got down to blogging about the upcoming Festival, Holi. After feeling that familiar satisfactory feeling on completing my post, it struck me that, I had started blogging last year in March. Going back to my older posts, it turned out that I had started on this VERY DAY- March 16, 2015 !!! A coincidence ? The Universe, definitely gives you signs if you are missing out on important events. :-)
So, Life in Technicolor turns ONE today! Thank you readers for all the love, comments and feedback. I'm loving every bit of this awesome blogging journey & will appreciate your company.

Like thunder & lightning 


One was all noise 

While the other, quiet light 

Joining hands 

To come together.

Holi: The Festival of Colors - #KhulKeKheloHoli

Image
"Mix the blue & yellow properly.. it will give a darker color" "Do you think the golden and silver colors are enough?" "Where are the balloons?"
These would be some of the questions we would shoot as friends & the dilemma, we would face as kids, on the day before Holi. Comparing & deciding on the "loot" for the D-Day (Holi). Arguing over, who would be bringing what, well in advance, so that as mighty warriors we would be prepared to unleash the colors on all and sundry, for after all, it was a festival of joy, of colors & merriment.

Holi, a spring festival, is an ancient Hindu festival, which starts off with lighting a huge bon fire, known as the Holika. A symbolic legend surrounding a demon king, Hiranyakashipu; his son, Prahlad; and his evil sister, Holika surrounds this tradition. As kids, we would start collecting dry wood, leaves & bushes for the bonfire from about a month in advance. It was an important part of the Holi fes…

Review: Hair Ok Please- A New Salon in Town !!

Image
So, recently, I got an opportunity to be a part of a launch of a brand new salon in Mumbai. Located in the Eros Building in Churchgate, "Hair Ok Please", is a uni sex salon catering to hair styling, nail care & makeup (on prior appointments). The quirky name, attracted me & the decor of the salon, lives up to its name. It is a bright and cute place with brilliant design with doodled walls. You feel the positive vibes as soon as you enter. I've put up some pictures from the salon here.
