Taking The Green Pledge

Going Green with Envy… So that happens when you are concentrating on what others have and you don’t. Going Green with Delight is when you are more concerned about what you can give to others and everyone can make good use of it or benefit from it. So we will Go Green…all of us… let…

Bags and Vases

So I am again slowly creeping back to Kaarukriti  🙂 and the brain is working again 🙂 Yayyyyy… Here goes…  Got bored of plastic and wine containers lying around with me storing them so I can make something out of them but never getting to do anything. And finally I did move myself and did…

A Mouthful of Sky

I just love staring for hours on end at the sky… I think there is nothing more uplifting than that. I think spending time looking at the sea increases your depth of soul and looking at the skies widens your horizons… I go to them just like that… and I always come back with a…
