The rain, ah the joy of the rains!

Monsoon rain! How wonderful it is to experience it all over again! After so many years of living in the desert, its simply magical to see dark clouds, smell the rain and be surrounded by greenery everywhere. It's probably something one takes for granted, but not anymore for me.

A cup of coffee on the balcony!

Pouring rain!

A little baking. Simple khara biscuits to go with tea and coffee.

My girls

Some days are a breeze. Some aren't. On those days all you do is question if everything you are doing is really making a difference or not. No one said being a parent is an easy thing. It's a minefield of doing the right thing, juggling beyond your wildest imagination, keeping your cool, forgetting about yourself and living in a constant state of exhaustion and fear. But then the little ones say or do something like run up and kiss you and all your worries and tiredness vanishes. They return at other times, when you least expect it, but maybe when you better able to cope with it. I just want to hold on to those moments, when I feel absolutely invincible, with both my girls hugging, kissing and nuzzling me.

That's what it's all about.

Kabini, a few glances

A few photos from our trip to Kabini in June. It was our first trip there and we loved it. The jungle safari was really great, even though we missed out on seeing a tiger. We did see elephants, lots of deer, several eagles, Indian bison, peacocks, owls etc. I loved the light in Kabini and really enjoyed taking lots and lots of photos there.

A cup of tea one morning.

A lovely verandah outside our rooms.

What a treat to walk through this arbor every day. The aroma was just mesmerizing.
