Who am I?

The first news I came across in 2020 was about a Bollywood movie crossing 100 Cr mark. This happened when Pragun mentioned about a blog hop she was hosting based on Bollywood. The prompts were thoughtful but filmy. As an individual, I am filmy but my writing is not. That’s when I noticed this inseparable aspect of movies.

In this post, the climax will reveal the identity of the protagonist, until then enjoy the suspense.
Who am I?
I am sweet but most of the time I am salty. Pls note, you have met me and you have liked me.
I am feather-light, my figure is unique. You and I have watched many movies.
In the park, by the lake or at home. You & your family prefer me to kill your boredom.
I love your family, they are too filmy, That’s the reason I hang around with your family.

On a day like today
I am suffering from a severe throat infection which has severely affected my vocal cords. Hence, I am unable to speak. Any attempt to speak is nothing more than blowing air which, may sound like a whisper or just, nothing.

Three, four, five times the phone rang but FIL didn’t come to answer and I was unable to call him (remember I couldn’t speak). Fortunately, he arrived to answer the phone.
To answer the phone or get someone to answer the phone, could be a challenge was a though out of my radar until today.
Challenge 2 (FIL is on the phone talking) Yes, Mangesh has gone to office. Yes, she is home. Yes, but she can’t speak…

#LoveMumbaiTraffic

Sam, Indu, Krissh and I met through a carpool app. We carpool to work. Our office hours & location is the same. We work in a different organization but in the same business park. It’s been almost two years since we are pooling.
I have noticed, with every passing year Mumbai traffic is becoming bad to worse, and so is the work pressure. It competes with the increasing Mumbai traffic.
To beat the traffic we leave before traffic wakes up. But evenings are….. I have to mention about monsoon. Monsoons bring relief from the rising temperature but at the same time, it terrorizes us. Flooding, road closure and kilometers of jams. Sometimes I feel I spend my precious time in the traffic. And rest of the time I think I live my life in Mumbai traffic. Luckily, KIS (Krish, Indu, and Sam) keeps me entertained and going. I find my work-life balance in Mumbai traffic.
I work till 6 pm so does KIS. My office environment is vibrant and demanding. Thanks to our corporate communications team who help …
