The Wake-Up Call

By   /  August 19, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on The Wake-Up Call

I infer and conclude that having spent almost all of my life in places where sunshine was a much sought- after luxury, I can now reckon and construe my love for daylight, luminosity, and give full justification for my complete partiality and predilection to warm sunny days and summer. I have got to confess to […]

Of him who is the wind beneath my wings

By   /  August 5, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of him who is the wind beneath my wings

“ In mighty gusts the wind today swirled around the beach, blew the sand…… The powerful things which would not bend, resisted…. snapped and broke away… ..and yet I saw a Seagull rest upon the strength of the same wind. She spread her wings and gently leaned as if against her lover’s breast…”   Engulfed […]

The Crossroad Remedy

By   /  July 30, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on The Crossroad Remedy

Left, Right, Straight on or Retrace? The very questions that create bewildering uncertainty at a point when we are confounded; walking down a new path, on unfamiliar grounds or while making crucial choices. None has been spared the tight spot; not the apprentice or the veteran. Faced it I have, not once, not twice but […]

The Spread on my Bread

By   /  July 22, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on The Spread on my Bread

The Aztecs and the Incas of the first century in the Common Era used this as a remedy for toothache. Though I do not belong there, my knowledge of it did begin decades ago through a tale told about a circus lion who had it bad when it stuck onto the roof of his mouth. […]

Weather the Weather

By   /  July 15, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Weather the Weather

Overcast, Cloudy, Gloomy, Grey, Dull, and Dreary. Take your pick; Synonymous each of the other, apt too for a daily forecast. Terms you’d hear the weatherman also use perhaps to talk about a day sans sunshine and blue skies across the country at this time of year. Many a mind perchance carrying this wishful deliberation: […]

Of a Special Hue

By   /  July 1, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of a Special Hue

One’s choice of favourite colours, it says, alters time to time. I hold it to be true. Mine shifted from Yellow to Pink to Blue. The attraction, be it physiological, psychological or simply an appeal to one’s mood, frame of mind or senses, I cannot elucidate or explicate. As for mingled shades, the blend mixes […]

Of an Accessory

By   /  June 24, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of an Accessory

Dainty, Flirty, Firm, Serious, Sporty, Officious, Bizarre, Rugged, Playful, Smart, each of a choice and of a style all its own. Sported by many. One for every occasion. I love them , and I stand not alone. Many besides, I have found, who are equally ardent if not more, for this cover of a guise […]

Giving in Perfect Spirit

By   /  June 17, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Giving in Perfect Spirit

A purple balloon, even taller than he, was the gift he had carried for his teacher on her birthday. She thanked him for it and told him that he could take it for himself, the little nine year old refused, he had brought it only for her. This was conceivably the simplest gift she had […]

Of Indebtedness Perfectly Uttered

By   /  June 10, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of Indebtedness Perfectly Uttered

  Mulling over, an abundance of numerous remarkable pleasures of life flood my mind for which we may consciously and willingly sound our appreciation for. The ‘simple’ pleasures however, are the ones easily and often overlooked and taken for granted. Too mundane, unimportant and ordinary or just plain and simply too regular to be mentioned […]

Of a Fetish – Of The Umb-rella

By   /  June 4, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of a Fetish – Of The Umb-rella

When Rihanna sang –“Under my Um -berella –ella-ella-eh…” she could have well been singing about a fixation or an obsession of the Umbrella, but though it may have sounded so, I surmise it isn’t. Mine is. A Fetish, that is. Not of the true or rather, extreme type, but yes, it could be termed to […]
