    The green salad, green tea, green goblin, green grocer, green-eyed monster…all that’s green is not good actually…. 


    it is easy being green

    It is easy being green – yes, with St Patrick’s day that got off around the corner, it was an easy choice of title!

    But in today’s life, it is much easier to be green than any other colour.

    For a working mother, who is at that end of the spectrum where watching cookery shows is the most best it can get in cooking department, green is a boon!


    Salads with a large portion of pitta bread pinched into pieces or an easy blend of plain cooked lentils with an artful dressing of lemon, and salt and pepper thrown in can work wonders to a hungry stomach! rather stomachs…yes, it is easy being green

    Green tea of course is good to wash it all off.


    And coming from that patch of green state in India called Kerala, we know about different shades of green, what they mean and how wonderful they can be.

    green corporates

    Incidentally, the new upcoming corporate office of one of the top ten corporate houses of India, coming up in Calicut has a roof that is a completely walkable terrace…you can walk along the slope from the ground till the roof, outside around. Grand no?


    Cochin International Airport became the world’s first fully solar powered airport. What can be more green than this!!!!! and in the long run it is easy being green

    The houses that I have seen all through my childhood days, the ones that seemed to rise out of a dream were green, magical and dreamy!

    my jeevan

    The magical rains that came prompted purely by the rotation of the earth, at the designated time and day, the ponds and lakes that swelled  with a gay abandon, the warmth of the hearth on a rainy day with the aroma of mother’s food wafting into all corners of the house….the memories are so green with a velvet touch…



    it is easy being green

    Good for heart, soul, mind and feet….

    Incredible indeed! 

    Emirates – Profound

    ek ek

    I don’t know why, but everytime I hear of an incident involving aircraft, my heart does a double somersault. I hate flying but then I work with an airlines. Amen!

    When I fly, I carry loads of prayer books, rosery, and other tools that aid my praying. I have seen the smug safe look on my co-passengers’ faces when I travel. Good for them! Yeah, totally.

    I feel so profoundly thankful to God everytime I fly and come back to terra firma.

    The closest I came to a situation was when our flight was going round round above the deeply cloudy Kochi airport. The rain clouds and the air pockets made the flight bumpier and the co-passengers, all of them sat with an iron face. So hard and tense!

    My daughter Avaantica was only six then and sonny two. (now they are twenty and sixteen respectively)  Both were fast asleep. I was just hoping they don’t wake up till we landed. The plane flew in total silence. No announcement from the captain as well. The absolute horrendous 15 minutes of my life! (one of the…)

    When it finally landed, not so smooth, we were all so grateful to the Almighty.

    When I saw today’s images of Emirates airline circulating in the Social Media, I sent a sincere and profound thank you to God for saving the passengers and crew from what could have been a tragic event.

    The way the Airline’s crew handled the emergency and the Airline itself set another brilliant example the way they dealt smoothly with the  media and other stakeholders  – another profound  example of their brilliant track record.

    We are with you EK!
