Tomorrow - LBC Post

I've been meaning to rejoin my friends at the Loose Bloggers Consortium for our weekly post.  The problem is that last week's topic was 'Goodbye'.  It didn't inspire me at all.

This week's topic is 'Tomorrow'.  Now I'm just going to sit back and let the inspiration start flowing.

TOMORROW      (by gaelikaa)

Tomorrow I'm going to change my ways
Improve my life, improve my days,
I'll keep my stuff all up to date,
No more will I procrastinate.
I won't be late, I'll be on time,
Fix those annoying habits of mine,
Be more productive, organised,
As I have always been advised.
But just right now, I'm feeling tired,
Not really feeling much inspired.
So I shall sleep, on rest catch up
And wake up feeling all fired up.
Tomorrow!  

Yes, there's always tomorrow, isn't there?  Scarlett O'Hara was right.  Tomorrow is another day.  Full of hope and possibilities.

For some strange reason, tomorrow never comes for some people.  Stra…

The Sunshine Award

I've been awarded THE SUNSHINE AWARD by author Ruchita Vasudev.  As well as displaying this lovely award on my blog, there are a  few rules to observe.

Thank the person who awarded you.Fill in the Q&APass on the award to 10-12 deserving bloggers. Well, I do thank Ruchita for thinking of me when it came to passing this award on.  I'll very happily fill in the Q&A.  I'll write down the bloggers to whom I'd like to pass on the award.  If they see the post and decide to accept the award, I'll be happy, but I don't need anyone mailing to tell they can't do it.  If anyone sees themselves nominated and can't join in for whatever reason, I'll understand..no worries!!!
FAVOURITE COLOUR:  Maroon.  Beautiful in the Indian winter, but not so 'hot' in summer.  Unfortunately.
FAVOURITE ANIMAL:  For some reason, I'm rather partial to cats.  But I don't like animals lying around the house nor sleeping on the chairs or beds.  I get a hygiene pa…

Review - SALVATION OF A SAINT by Keigo Higashino

Keigo Higashino, who teased readers worldwide with his novel THE DEVOTION OF SUSPECT X about a year ago is back again with a new novel to tease again, intrigue again and keep readers turning the pages until the very end. The author known as 'the Japanese Stieg Larsson' has a reputation to maintain and he's certainly doing a good job of maintaining it.

True, it was an English playwright, Congreve, who said that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. But this is a universal phenomenon.   When the person you love stops loving you, it's a betrayal of all you've shared.  When that person is about to leave you for a friend of yours and tries to twist things round to make it look like it's your fault, the betrayal can be absolute and unforgiveable.  Ayane's husband Yoshitaka had told her that without children, their life together could not go on. For Ayane, grieving inwardly for her failure to bear a child,  the fact that her partner turns away from her rather t…

REVIEW - BUSINESS SUTRA by Devdutt Pattanaik

A few months ago, I ran into a slight problem.  I had a bit of a misunderstanding with Mrs. Asha Singh (not her real name), a neighbourhood friend of mine, someone I've known since I arrived in India about two decades ago.  We'd gone for a bit of shopping. Mrs.  Asha Singh, I'd come to understand, had been collecting discount coupons for a very large chain store.  Her husband would go there, buy the monthly provisions and pay for them and he would hand Mrs. Asha Singh these discount coupons every time he returned with the shopping.  She would save up these coupons with the hope of buying something nice for herself.  However, the discount coupons scheme was about to come to an end in favour of a card/point system.  So Mrs. Asha Singh was anxious to encash these coupons in order to get their full value.  That, however, proved to be easier said than done.

For starters, she wouldn't go to the local branch of that chain but insisted on going to the city centre branch of it…
