Escaping Heartache

The only reason I am glad I don’t own a dog/dogs is because I don’t have to go through the heartbreak of losing them.

I fall deeply in love with friends’ pets and when they die, it depresses me like few things do.

Dogs bring so much joy into our world. A listening year, a warm lick, a playful nudge, a moist nose, a wagging tail knocking things down or just a pair of eyes you can’t ever say “no” to – they bring it all.

And when they leave, they take with them a world of goodness, leaving a void that refuses to be filled.

Remembering one of my favourites – Bubbles – as she celebrates her birthday today in Doggie Heaven. The stars, my dear, must be smiling with you.


Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.

It is no secret that I’m a lover of potatoes.

Love them in most forms – aloo (potato, in Hindi) paratha, mashed potato, chips….

But my most favourite is fried potato. Yum yum yum.


Add to that another of my favourites – curd – and I travel to food heaven and back.
