So it wasn’t a surprise when as a teenager he preferred working/studying at night instead of day time.
Aasim is 18 today and has stepped into adulthood. While I was going through the pictures to make this photo collage and had no idea how much time I spent doing it, I felt the time was frozen. In Aasim’s words, when he was ten, “the clock was randomly browsing through time”

This kitten diaries update almost did not make it. For several days the kittens were not to be seen. Billu had kept them well hidden and did not even allow me near them. After about a week of no signs of kittens being around, we gave up and thought that they succumbed to nature’s ills. … Continue reading Kitten Diaries Part -3 -The playful kittens
11th May, 1994, it was a Wednesday. I woke up a little early that morning, got quickly dressed in a simple green coloured cotton saree that I had purchased for the occasion, applied a light foundation and lipstick, slipped into my sandals and I was ready for the most important event of my life. It … Continue reading 21 years
Kittens around the house keep you busy. The mother needs to be fed, the kittens need to be weighed and you just can’t keep yourself from clicking pictures. It was Day 4 and all the kittens wanted to do was sleep. The kittens sleep most of the time and are extremely dependent on their mother … Continue reading Kitten Diaries Part -2 Mishti, Missy and Wookie
