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 just returned from a trip to India and I would love to talk about the relationship I have with my eldest brother, Ashutosh Razdan (I call him Bhaiyya). 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

Traveling to India

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | February 1st, 2015

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

WARM EMBRACE

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | November 1st, 2014

Hello! I hope this note finds you each exceptionally well. I would love to talk about….HUGS! Yes, I said HUGS. Why I mention this is because I am a very enthusiastic, tight and heartfelt hugger. I go in with both arms (unless I am holding something) and hug like I mean it! It is warm, it is close and it leaves no room for the person to wonder about how happy I am to see them…or meet them. Yes, I … Read More

Note of Gratitude

by Shefali Razdan Duggal | October 1st, 2014

Dear Universe: When I was 29 years old, and VERY pregnant with my first child, I was physically assaulted at the corner of 1st and Mission streets in downtown San Francisco at 8:25 a.m. by a homeless woman. Although my first pregnancy, I had the immediate instinctual reaction to bend over and cover my very pregnant belly. After two very nice construction workers pulled this lady off of me and she ran away, another nice man, whom I was too … Read More
