Types of friends

I started writing this more than an year ago. Remember a friendship of mine was ruined and I cried and cried and cried? Through tears and through posts. Booohooo! If I get 1 buck for each time I wrote about that dead friendship, I will probably not even make 10. Well, well. I am not…

What real love feels like

When I fell in love with my husband in college, I was overwhelmed with that feeling. How could I love someone that much?! And then years later, we brought Reiko home. The moment I held her, I knew that for her, I would throw Abhinav under the bus without a second’s thought. When I was…
