Life happens organically #FridayReflections

Serendipity has played an important part in my life . I am convinced that most things happen in life by chance rather than design. Because if it is by design, I am definitely not the designer!

Almost everything in my life happened serendipitously : including my birth. Not only was I unplanned but even my actual birth was unexpected. My mother tells me I was born after a heavy tea of batata wada followed by a bumpy rickshaw ride home !

And this was just the beginning.

Thereafter a series of events led me to where I am. My choice of friends for example . I never set out seeking them but friendships just blossomed in the strangest of ways . Today I consider myself blessed with the number of people I know .

And what about my own “career choices” ?Though I was always fond of reading and writing I had never planned on becoming a writer . But after trying my hand at several things , writing seems to be the most enduring.

I discovered my talent for cooking purely accidentally too. So I can go on and on about how my life just happened almost organically. The most recent of these being my inspiration for my great Indian Novel that I will be writing this whole month as part of the NaNoWriMo challenge.

Yes serendipity has played an important part in my life .

And because of the uncertainty, I feel is is all the more enriched. Each day is like a treasure hunt where things unfold themselves magically.

I wonder what today will bring.


I’m participating in #FridayReflections hosted by Corinne and Sanch Vee.

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. I am so glad that serendipity brought you into the world and led you to writing. That’s wonderful. I too, am participating in NaNoWriMo. It’s quite the challenge! I’m sure you’ll smash it. Good luck!
