I Need A Break.

I tried my best to continue with this blog but my health both physical and emotional has made it extremely difficult for me to carry on with the blog. I haven’t visited any of the food blogs  or for that matter any of the blogs I follow. I did have and continue to have problems with my computer but that is not the reason, I am just not able to put my mind to it. In the past few days I have only posted comments on two film blogs that is Memsaabstory’s review of Jaal a film in which my father (Tarun Bose) had an interesting role and dustedoff. Dustedoff wrote some stuff which stirred up memories and I was unable to control myself and had to share those memories. The fact is I just need a break.

I would like to thank each one of my followers for the support you have all given me during this most painful moment of my life.  Infact I was quite thrilled to see that Lalitha had tried my or rather Ma’s last recipe and enjoyed it. I am touched by all the kind and comforting words, I wish I could meet all of you.
Today with Ma no longer around I realize how unfortunate are those children who miss out on a mother’s love. Although I lost my father when I was little more than a kid, I was able to quickly come to terms with the loss thanks to the comforting presence of Ma but now it is, to put it mildly, rather tough.

I would like to work on a blog- cum- website on my father; well that is what I would like to do let me see whether I can actually do it after all Ma was supposed to play a major role in this venture. God willing and hopefully with Ma’s blessings I may succeed. I will of course visit the blogs I follow as when I am able to do so.

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN. I will not end with a good bye but I would rather say till we meet again on cyber space.


  1. Take care Shilpi.Hope to see you soon.

  2. You really need a break. Hope and pray u come back to ur own self soon and I am sure ur mom would not be happy seeing u like this. Please try to get over as soon as possible. Waiting for ur return in ur normal mode :):)

  3. @Pushpa & Chitchat: Thank you very much for your kind words.

  4. Shilpi, I can understand how tough it must be for you right now, and the blog is hardly something that you want to pressurize yourself with at this time.

    So take a break. And see you again soon.

  5. You will be missed, Shilpi. But take care, look after yourself, and remember that you have friends around you - even if they've never met you - who wish you strength and peace and recovery in all the ways you need it. Will be looking forward to seeing you back.
