Its Tuesday, again! It’s like it comes every week like clockwork right?! Go figure! (We’re not time challenged, just kidding) The arrival of Tuesday may be monotonous, but we are here with this week’s Tangy Tuesday Picks to break you out of that monotony. Hope you enjoyed this week’s Buzzing Blogosphere, where gave you the creme de la creme of last week’s news, and made you laugh along with Perky Tweets. Today, let’s welcome Tuesday with this week’s tangy picks. If you wish to see your blog below and be read by the BlogAdda family, submit your blog posts to us!
- Who: Stuti Dhyani
- What: “And, that’s the Thing about Feelings”
- Tangy: Feelings are what makes us human, but they are also what limit us. It is because of these feelings that we are guarded, that we tend to overthink things. It is also these feelings that make life worthwhile, after all they are what allows us to feel happiness, sadness, and most importantly, love. Stuti writes us a letter about her feelings on feelings.
- Who: Ashwini C N
- What: “What’s in your list?”
- Tangy: In today’s world, everything is digital, in fact so is the written word. Writing, actual writing has now become an art form, mainly because it is so rare. When was the last time we actually wrote something down, rather than typing it into a notes app? Or wrote someone a letter, rather than shooting them an e-mail? In this monologue, Ashwini laments the long lost art of writing, and of making lists.
- Who: Sushmita Malakar
- What: “Unattached”
- Tangy: Since childhood, we are dependent on someone. In the beginning, it is our parents. Then after a certain age, we are expected to be with someone, whether it is a friend, or a boyfriend/girlfriend. Then our significant others, and eventually our children. Throughout our lives, we are always attached to someone and Sushmita points some benefits of being truly independent, of being unattached.
- Who: K. R. Vidhyaa
- What: “Little Gopal And The Cowherd”
- Tangy: This week is Janmashtami, when people celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna. In honour of that day, K. R. Vidhyaa tells us a story about a young boy, who is named Gopal by his mother, an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna. A story about an innocent child that is bound to touch your heart.
- Who: Neha Tambe
- What: “Confessions of a Mom of Two”
- Tangy: They say the hardest job in this world is being a mother. A 24 hours, 7 days a week job with zero leaves or offs, and mothers aren’t even supposed to complain about the blessing that is motherhood! The job gets even harder when there is more than one child in the mix. Neha writes of her experiences as a mother of two, and what she has learned over the years.
- Who: Dishekka Jakkhar
- What: “Conversation with a mistaken vampire”
- Tangy: Let’s face the facts, vampires are in. Whether the hype started from Interview with a vampire, or continued with more modern stories such as Twilight or The Vampire Diaries, the truth is that everyone loves a vampire. But the question arises, what will happen if you really come face to face with a vampire? Dishekka writes a story about a girl who just might be turning into one.
- Who: Harshita Srivastava
- What: “Conversations with an Uber Driver”
- Tangy: Drivers of taxis and auto rickshaws are a textbook of human behaviour, as they see many specimens while carting people to and fro. These drivers base their opinion of people on their experience, and while they can be judgmental, their observation cannot be negated. A conversation with a cab driver sparks off a debate in Harshita’s mind, and we hope that you read the blogpost and join the discussion.

What: “Confessions of a Mom of Two”
I have seen people differentiating between the first born and the second issue, but such disparity leads to friction in mind or in sibling’s mind. I have two sons and I managed to maintain the uniformity in both the kids b’coz since childhood, I had watched disparity and had even voiced for it, but who cares. I had vowed to maintain it and successfully I did.
Read Unattached by sushmita .although being independent feels like a need but we can never remain Unattached. We humans are programmed to feel a little more about atleast one person and try or not we become attached..that’s how it is

What: “What’s in your list?”
I agree that today everything is done using an app or a notepad rather than a physical book and since I’m more used to typing than writing, I feel sometimes very difficult to use a pen and have almost forgotten what my handwriting used to look like. It is because, I find it easier and faster to type than to write but this was not the case 5 years ago where my typing was slow compared to my writing. I still do make a list using a sheet of paper rather than on my notepad to make it easier for me to have the physical proof along.

I find it weird at times to talk to drivers who are over friendly. Being a women, I feel most of the drivers do take a note of what we do, to whom we talk and keep watching us rather than the roads. It’s seriously no longer safe for us to travel in cabs as these drivers often judge us and it’s not professional at all.
I feel so much smarter now. I like the trend that content is becoming more and more important.I like the trend that content is becoming more and more important.
