Today we became students of history, as gathered by the Metropolitan Museum of Arts. The exterior itself is imposing. Long glistening corridors, multi-height ceilings, willing staff, hundreds of art pieces organised for visitors to do their own thing. So I made up my unresearched story, trying to imagine which images I would like to reflect [...]

I had a glimpse of Michigan (Anne Arbor) during my first visit to US. The university and residential areas were the main recollections. The house with Sun room was my favourite and also the deck which would be snow-covered in winter. I did not visit Michigan this time.  So the magic is portrayed through my [...]

We went to stay with my trader friend in Delaware; a school friend who migrated to US and like the true early European Traders, set up his final trading post in Delaware after a long stint at Pittsburgh. He has the “doer“ spirit so well perfected by the American culture which benefits from diversity that [...]

We learnt many things at the world’s learning mecca, BOSTON – MIT and Harvard being the niche and fifty plus other learning places. The best way to get a feel of Boston is to stand on one of the bridges of Charles River and look at the distant outlines of the Hancock and Prudential buildings, [...]

When you look out of the window these days, its all about vehicles on roads and in crowded places, people on streets. You have to really look carefully to differentiate. I admire the artists for their patient looking; they often capture reality unknown to their subjects. Some believe, when you look out you tend to [...]

“MALL”, in my view, stands for man’s affair with leisure love. America has the final say in entertaining and wooing consumers. An affair is usually short-term, so a Mall must constantly innovate. Leisure is no longer a by-product while consuming; so a Mall needs to package the leisure theme well. Shoprite, Bed-Bath & Beyond, Home [...]

Its fun to visit a place you have never been before. Uncertainty churns up anxiety, a much detested and unwelcome intruder. Little do we realise, worrying has kept us alive and fear is good for health. With such deep philosophy, we chalked out our travel plans during the long US stay. Multi-modal it would surely [...]

3 Clayton is home coming. I love the stone buildings and the manicured inner lanes surrounded by ancient trees. When I walk these lanes, I go back in time when there were dirt roads, big cars and earlier the horse and wagon days; the fur trade and the slavery. The lanes look neat and washed [...]

We got invited by our cousin; the one who took us to the Jazz show, for their daughter’s  new home-inaugural. A Good time to catch up with scattered cousins and their children and grandchildren. Under a light shower, the google driven Uber got us to a nice residential area. Two identical houses were constructed, enjoying [...]

1965 etched on the aluminium Tiffin box. The day at the school picnic, my sister and I sat and had the puri-bhaji at Arrey’s Picnic Point garden. Over the years I have visited that area, passed through and stood before the lake, where the Sunday goers and occasional couples haunt. The memory recall was a [...]

Years ago, I had walked that walk and framed a picture posing with the Wall Street Bull. Today, we posed before the same strapping old bull and a new bronze, nimble statue of a kid-girl, defying the Bull and trespassing over his domain. I had heard about the neighbourhood Trinity Church where the Great Depression [...]

 I remember that day in September 2001 so well; during discussions  at the office with TV on, someone cried, “Gosh, the pilot misjudged!!!” seeing the plane hit one of the Towers. And when another hit the other Tower, we were speechless. “How can this happen?” The sight of tumbling skyscrappers and  bombs of flowing ash [...]
