Concussions

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | September 1st, 2015

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. Two years ago, I experienced 2 concussions, and it was quite a challenging moment – – both in terms of it happening, as well as the introspection which happened thereafter. I learnt from that instant how truly fragile life can be, even for a healthy woman. I don’t spoke (cigarettes or otherwise), I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t drink caffeine…I don’t even drink soda (with the exception of the occasional root … Read More

The Mailman

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | June 1st, 2015

Hello!  I hope this note finds you each exceptionally well.  I would like to talk about kindness, and how it often stays within the recipient’s heart forever.  Frequently, the person sharing the kindness has no idea how it will impact the other, and even moreso, doesn’t even realize how wonderful they are truly being.  The experience which comes to mind for me in particular is when I was a very young child.  As I have mentioned before, I was a … Read More

Gold Digger

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | May 1st, 2015

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. I would love to talk about my journey in choosing the type of person whom I would marry. Yes, it was a very conscious decision. I wasn’t ever one who defaulted to the concept of “falling in love,” as I was a far too practical type of personality. My parents had the ultimate in practicality marriage, it having been arranged, with the two of them meeting/seeing one another on their wedding … Read More

Sibling Love

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | April 1st, 2015

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well.

I have two brothers, Bhaiyya and Raja (Dr. Rahul Razdan). When my parents moved to the United States, due to various complicated reasons, my eldest brother had to stay back in India and was then raised by my paternal grandparents. I grew … Read More

LACK OF DEPTH

by admin | March 1st, 2015

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. I would like to talk about spiritual depth. Moreover, my utter confusion and astonishment when I might overhear conversations which reflect a true lack of depth in a person’s psyche. And, although I am not always astute at distinguishing between a silly conversation and a true emptiness in character, I feel that I have a fairly good sense between the two. Admittedly, I, just like all of us, have engaged in … Read More

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. I would love to tell you all about my recent trip to India. My mother, children, Rajat and I took a 2 week trip to the Motherland. I hadn’t traveled to India with my mother since I was a very young person. After my family moved to the United States, I traveling to India twice with her. It was very expensive in the 1970s and 1980s for a middle class family … Read More

Identity Theft

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | January 1st, 2015

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. I recently experienced Identity Theft, with someone getting a hold of some information of mine, and then proceeding to make a fake license (with their photo) and then opening accounts around town. Luckily, I caught this very quickly, as I have alerts on my credit, and not too much damage was done before I could put a screeching halt to it. Although, as I was spending hours online and on the … Read More

BETTER ANGELS

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | December 1st, 2014

Hello! I hope this note finds you exceptionally well. I would love to talk about the concept of spirituality vs. religion. I am, by all accounts, an exceptionally faithful person. And, as each year progresses, I become even more so. Although, with my ever increasing faith, I also have vehemently retained the belief that we must remain understanding and empathetic of how life has many interesting/unexpected twists and turns, which might often lead us to certain decisions which subjectively feel … Read More
