Thank you to all of you who reached out to me to ask why Ive been quiet. I have been down under the weather this entire week. Cold and body pain. Havent been able to take off. Hopefully resting over the weekend, hydrating and eating well will do the trick. . . Pastel Mondays - something Ive hardly done in the past.

On some days you dont want to work out or run but you push yourself. Id arrived on Sunday morning after a 4 hour sleep the previous night and was so jet lagged. But I pushed myself to complete my recovery run of an hour. And it felt good after that. It always does. . . #didyouworkouttoday . . #pushyourself #itsalwaysworthit #runningmom #runnersofinstagram #train #ultrarunning #ultramarathoner #train #dotherightthing #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

Mad rushed workday and mad rushed drive to the airport. My can driver was utterly sweet and was more than glad to click my pictures 😁. . . We landed in Changi at 4:15 am, horribly sleep deprived. My colleague mentioned that the airport is so huge, I can do my run here 😂😂 We were clicking pictures of a very pretty place with a waterfall when this tourist came up to me and asked if he could get a selfie with me - I was very surprised and amused and said yes :) . .

As good as you can look with less than 6 hours of sleep, getting up at 3:30 am and mad work days 🙈🙈 . . Pictures from an office shoot.

Why do you run so much? Isnt it cold in the morning? 3:30 in the morning! That too on a working day! Are you nuts?? Why would you run for 6 hours? What are you training for? Youve already run 50K and more - so whats the point of this? So at the end of all this all you get is a medal? Everyone gets it right, so whats the point? . . This and more. Ive heard it all. There was a time when Id try and sincerely answer the questions. Now I smile. Because no matter what you say and how hard you try and explain, some people dont get it. . . And for those of you who messaged to ask ask me - no it isnt easy. There are days when I want to snooze the alarm and get back inside the rajaai. Or go to my boys room and tuck myself between them and snuggle up. But I know that Ill feel better after I run. I always do. You will too, after a work out. Always. Try it. Trust me, its totally worth it. Youll love yourself better and look at yourself differently. I did. You will to. So make a start. Now. Because its the best gift you can give yourself. . . I run because Im happiest when I run. Running gives me a high. It helps me clear my head and destress. I dont know any other way to be. . . What makes you happy? . . Tempo running today. #didyouworkouttoday . . #YOLO #dowhatmakesyouhappy #investinyourhealth #fitandfabulous #runningmom #runnersofinstagram #igers #ultrarunning #ultramarathoner #train #strongwoman #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

Some of you have messaged to ask me how I manage to balance work, run and manage to be a mom - Ill be honest. It isnt easy - there are days when I want to snooze the alarm and snuggle under the rajaai on cold winter mornings. But I kick myself to get up, get out and run - why do I do it? Because I am happiest when I run. Because investing in our health is the best gift we can give ourself. . . Totally not a fan of western formals or pastels - as if you didnt know 😜😜 Wore this baby pink shirt with a brown pair of trousers and a Satya Paul scarf for a change last week. . . #abercrombie #vanhuesen #satyapaul #workwear #igers #runnersofinstagram #runningmom #train #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

If you have a choice between being right and being kind, choose kind. . . Words I have always lived by. My older twin recently showed me this as part of a beautiful book that hes reading. Its an amazing feeling when your children teach you something. You look back at the times when you held them as pink tiny bundles and wonder where the years flew by. My near teens have taught me to be a little more kind. A little more patient. A little more loving. They have taught me to push myself and raise the bar. To live in the moment. To be and bask in the little joys. . . A beautiful cotton Lambani saree in jewel tones. So nice to step out on winter work afternoons :) . . 28K in 4 hours on crazy inclines at Pipeline Road this morning. #didyouworkouttoday . . #lifeslessons #whatyourkidsteachyou #myworld #tnj #myboys💙 #ultrarunning #ultramarathoner #igers #runnersofinstagram #runningmom #train #strongwoman #ilovesarees #ilovehandloom #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

When I ran my first full marathon at KTM in September 2013, my friends and family thought I was mad to take a bus to Mysore alone and run. They continue to believe I am mad although now they have given up on me 😁 . . Your friends and family wish you well. But if you want to do something, you should do it as long as it doesnt hurt the ones you love. Do what makes you happy and what you love. . . Running makes me happy.

55 minute tempo running in an 85 minute run this morning. Forgot to turn on location and the app didnt show the correct distance. Woke up at 3:45 am - no it isnt easy on winter mornings when all you want to do is snuggle under the comforter for a bit more. But we do it all the same. Why? Because NOW is the right time to invest in your health. . . A Ganga Jamuna saree with several such happy shades of green paired with a red blouse.

A 5 hour run on a cold, foggy and beautiful winter morning yesterday. Theres something magical about running as dawn breaks and the skies change hues. Its so breathtakingly beautiful! No amount of pictures do justice to this beauty... . . The food I was carrying was in a fellow runners car. I couldnt eat properly during the run - felt so fatigued and famished cos my sugar levels dropped drastically. Two of my fellow runners ran with me, ensured that I drank water and ate - completely letting go of their pace. This is another aspect of running that I absolutely love! Your fellow runners egg you to push yourself, stop and ask if youre doing okay - race day or not. It wasnt easy to push for intervals after running for 2.5 hours on inclines when the sun was out. But we did. And in the end, the soreness, the pain, the insane waking up at 3:10 am - its all totally worth it. . . A 2 hour Recovery Run in beautiful Cubbon Park this morning. Winter runs are so so enjoyable! Once you get out of your comfort zone and are up early morning, its so amazing to run. Why do I love Cubbon Park? Its not just the beautiful tall trees that have seen the sands of time - its seeing old couples walk, making you believe yet again in happily ever after, its runners pushing themselves, its kids out on an early morning learning to ride the cycle or skate taking you back to your childhood... . .

अँखियों के झरोखों से, मैंने देखा जो सांवरे तुम दूर नज़र आए, तुम (बड़ी) दूर नज़र आए बंद करके झरोखों को, ज़रा बैठी जो सोचने मन में तुम्हीं मुस्काए, मन में तुम्हीं मुस्काए अँखियों के झरोखों से... . . इक मन था मेरे पास वो, अब खोने लगा है पाकर तुझे, हाय मुझे, कुछ होने लगा है इक तेरे भरोसे पे, सब बैठी हूँ भूल के यूँ ही उम्र गुज़र जाए, तेरे साथ गुज़र जाए अँखियों के झरोखों से... . . Lrrics of the title song from the movie Akhiyon Ke Jharokon Se . . For Diwali this year, I decided against buying a heavy fat assed, expensive Kanjeevaram saree - why? Because Im tired of looking for occasions to wear these. Ive been very fortunate and have inherited Ammas beautiful sarees. While I love dressing up, I dont have this huge social life where I can wear silk sarees regularly. J had been wanting a Dongaria saree for long. This was a love at first sight one. Yellow, red and cotton - whats not to love?! 😁😁 . . Silver jewelry that Id bought for Diwali. I will never ever tire of silver - like ever 😜 After seeing a recent shoot pic someone asked me which brand Id modelled for - I was embarassed to say that all the jewellery I wore was mine 😝😝 . . #diwali2018 #ilovehandloom #ilovesarees #silver #nofilter #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

The woman you want to be will face all kinds of battles. You will lose friends, relationships and wonder if it was worth it all. Choose her above all else. . . A pink and purple kinda day. Rest from running. . . I have never been a binge eater. Never sought comfort in food - Ive kicked hard ass in the gym and run like a mad woman when Im stressed and am dealing with a lot. Pushing myself and sweating it out is what destresses me. Even during festivals I am super conscious of what I eat. So my cheat day is about one meal a week. Has worked for me always :) . . Mid week holidays are weird. You look forward to them SO much and getting back to work can make you feel so bummed sometimes! . . #musings #igers #runningmom #strongwoman #train #pinkandpurple #silver #diwali2018 #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

Its easy to hit the snooze button on your alarm and get inside the comforter Its sooooo tempting to sleep in on winter mornings It isnt easy to step outside our comfort zone and do something we are not used to Why should you work out? What will you lose if you dont? Because investing in your health is the best gift you can ever give yourself Because once you start, youll feel so good about yourself Because we owe to it to ourselves to spend at least 20 minutes a day to take care of our health . . 45 minute interval running in a 90 minute work out last morning. Was horribly sleep deprived and pushed myself. Today is a rest day. . . A maroon silk saree paired with a black blouse with zardosi work to work yesterday.

Last evening was a lovely Diwali get together with a bunch of friends. With love, laughter and light. . . Ammas vintage Kanjeevaram in a stunning purple and what we Tams call arakku - which is a reddish maroon. My maternal grandmother got this saree made for her 7 daughters and 2 daughters-in-law. Im lucky to have inherited Ammas. Theres this wonderful feeling of being wrapped in Ammas love and warmth. Of course Im not even a patch on her - shes this vision of strength, grace and beauty. . .

Happy Karnataka Rajyotsava! . . Rewind to Feb 2014 when I had performed a Yakshagana dance, as part of a fusion dance for the company Annual Day. . . Yakshagana ( Kannada : ಯಕ್ಷಗಾನ, Tulu : ಆಟ) is a traditional theatre form that combines dance, music, dialogue, costume, make-up, and stage techniques with a unique style and form. This theatre style is mainly found in Tulunadu and some parts of Malenadu regions of Karnataka and Kerala.Yakshagana is traditionally presented from dusk to dawn. Its stories are drawn from Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavata and other Hindu epics. . . I didnt know what I was signing up for when I agreed to dance this 😜 The makeup took forever and the costume was so heavy and elaborate - some of my colleagues couldnt recognise me and my partner 😂 . . #indiandance #yakshagana #indianculture #fabulous41 #mylifeasramya

You cant go wrong with black. Ever. Im not find of western formals - when I do wear them, I love the understated look always. Very minimal accessories. Ive almost never worn a black blazer with a black dress. Love the pop of red and low bunned hair . . Not a brand babe at all - but Ralph Lauren is definitely one of my favourites. Oh and chose flats over kitten heels - nothing is worth killing your feet over for a 14 hour day 😁😁 . .

तेरे मेरे होठो पे, मीठे मीठे गीत मितवा आगे आगे चले हम पीछे पीछे परीत मितवा . . Sreedevi looked like dream when she danced to this song in the movie Chandni. My love for chiffons were inspired by her Kaate Nahi Katte from Mr. India where she danced in the rain wearing a blue chiffon - how can we forget how stunning she was! . . A mad busy Sunday it was - recovery run for an hour followed by strength training at home. Rushed packing for a work trip to Hyderabad. I bumped into Ms Shobhaa De in the airport - shes so much more beautiful in person! When I told her that, she said that shes been admiring me - comong from the impeccably dressed Preistess of High Fashion and Page 3 Diva you can only imagine how overwhelmed in was! I thanked her profusely - why didnt I click a selfie with her? It would have totally taken away the magic from that moment :) . . #chiffon #nofilter #ilovesarees #pearls#ultramarathoner #strongwoman #runningmom #runnersofinstagram #igers #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

A wonderful 2 hour run last morning - cant begin to explain how happy I am to start running again! I am inherently a happy person - my happiness quotient is a lot higher when I run :) Realised that if someone told me dont sing, Id be okay - but dont run?! For me running is therapeutic, I destress when I run - and am happiest when I do. . .

Some of you messaged to ask me where this picture was taken - which beach and holiday am I at...this was taken at the dentists parking lot 😁😁 I had actually worn shirts and thought I might be pushing it - so changed into this skirt...We had plans of taking a short vacation but decided to stay at home and chill as the boys like to call it :) . . The last 4 days have been so wonderful and relaxing. I have basked in the festivities, ate and danced like theres no tomorrow... Last morning, we made the much needed visit to the dentist - I have atrocious teeth and poor J has inherited mine 🤐 The visit on Thursday confirmed that the boys need braces - and this visit was to get the cleaning done before they fit the braces. . . Heres to more days spent at home, more games of Scrabble, more meals eaten at Ammas talking about her childhood, more arguments about which song to listen to while driving, more talks about crushes, more teasing, more of siblings fighting and standing up for each other, more snuggles, sleeping in, more TLC, more love and more togetherness....the best things in life are the simplest, isnt it? . . #familygoals #family #us #tnj #myboys💙 #myworld #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

Shubbho Bijoya! . . Sindur Khela (Bengali: সিঁদুর খেলা), literally meaning vermillion game, is a Bengali Hindu tradition where women smear each other with sindur on Vijayadashami, the last day of the Durga Puja. On the day of the Vijayadashami after the conclusion of the ritual worship, married Bengali Hindu women apply sindur on the forehead and feet of the goddess and offer sweets to her. Then they put sindur on each others faces and offer sweets to each other. . . I participated in this a few years ago and absolutely love the custom! I get very emotional when I pray to Ma - T said he looked around and no one else was weepy 😂😂 This year we also danced after the ceremony. . . Traditional lu women wear white saree with a red border for this. While I have this, I didnt want to risk the colour of Sindoor not getting cleared after dry cleaning. So I wore a fuscia (or Vadaamalli as we Tams call it) coloured Kanjeevaram. I was about the only one who draped the saree in the Bong style - how I love this drape! NK time to change hairstyle or jewelry which was totally Tam style - so I looked like a cocktail mix of Tam and Bong - am saying Tong in my head 😆😆 . . This brought the end to the 9 days of Navratri, my most favourite festival of the year :) . . #navratri #navratri2018 #ilovehandloom #imissrunning #indianfestival #cocktail 😜#fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

They say God created mothers because He couldnt come down on earth... Amma Thank You for being the strongest and kindest person I know; for being my biggest source of love, sanity and support; for always teaching me to have faith; for putting up with the rebellious teenager that I was; for raising me just like your son; for letting me make my decisions, watch me fall down and help get up and move on. You inspire me always and I aspire to be like you. Thank you for being my friend, philosopher and guardian angel. Feel incredibly blessed and privileged to be your daughter. . . A beige Kanjeevaram with pink and green Ganga Jamuna borders for Saraswathi Poojai this morning. Malli poo (gajra, or jasmine flowers) more special cos T bought them for me this morning 🤩 . .

Happy Dussehra to you and yours! . . Everytime I visit Ma (or Thakur) its an overwhelming feeling! The connection is magical and I break down, even as TnJ are wondering whats happening.... . . Look for good in people Theres something to learn and admire in everyone If you are given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind always Keep negativity out of your life Theres only so much emotion that everyone can hold Why fill it with anger, who, jealousy, hurt, malicious and viciousness Always speak up for what is right Strive to be you Its worth every battle you fight and every war you win On this Dashami and on every day, #bedurga #beshakti . . Ammas stunning electric blue 49 year old wedding saree with vaira ooshi (literally meaning diamond needles or the pattern of zari). Need I say that this is my most prized and cherished saree? . . #navratri2018 #navratri #vintage #ilovehandloom #nofilter #indianfestival #durga #fabulous42 #tnj #myboys💙 #mylifeasramya

A pale pink Kanjeevaram for Navami this morning. I stay away from pastels and light colours. After buying this saree I hated it for years. Today I loved it again - My tastes keep going through sine wave patterns 😜 . . TnJ and I had a great time binging in veg food this morning. Swipe to the right to see me gorge on a Baklava 😁 My ankle is not completely ok and Lord! Do I miss running or what? 😕😕 . . Ive been off the last 2 days, basking in the festivities and enjoying my most favourite time of the year 😊 . . Happy Dussehra to you and yours! . . #navratri #navratri2018 #navami #pink #ilovehandloom #nofilterneeded #kanjeevaram #jewellery #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

My heart sang with every rain drop that fell on me I went back to my dream where we walked in the rain I remembered that you love blue That I saw myself in your beautiful eyes And you saw me in yours . . We will help each other soar Bask in the beautiful world that we have created I want to come home to you, Wake up next to you, Love me like you do Because I want to spend my lifetime loving you - Ramya . . This was the closest to I had to Sky Blue, the colour for Ashtami. A vibrant blue and mustard Paithani. Wore yellow gold for a change 😜- gajra, glass bangles and the Maharashtrian Nath toncomplete the Maharashtrian mulgi (girl) look 😁 . .

White for Day 6 . . You can’t go wrong with an off white and pinkish maroon Kanjeevaram - we Tams call this colour arakku. Add aviators for that swag element 😎😎 . . For someone who was told I look “yellow” when I wore “white” in college, I’ve come a long way to absolutely loving the colour. It’s classy and understated - and you just can’t go wrong with it. . . This saree has a special story and beautiful memories attached to it. I bought for Amma’s 60th Birthday in 2002, from Vimor, a love at first sight this beauty was! Still remember how Amma looked like a goddess in it! . . Wearing yellow gold jewellery for a change 😜 . . How was your Monday? . . #white #kanjeevaram #ilovehandloom #mondaysbelike #aviators #mystyle #mac #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

They told her she had a beautiful smile Some said they lose themselves in them Innocent, magical, expressive, divine, intoxicating - they said it all They would never know the pain behind the smile Of days when she had dealt with hell The horror and pain they’d endured Sometimes when she looked back at her life It seemed unreal How much had happened How far she’d come How she’d grown from strength to strength She looked back and smiled at the person she was today She smiled no matter what life threw at her She’d read somewhere that “Smile - your smile is the only sunshine is someone’s life” So she smiled - Ramya . . An orange ilkal for Day 5 of Navraatri . . #orange #navratri #navratri2018 #ilovehandloom #ilovesarees #musings #igers #cotton #silver #fabulous42 #mylifeasramya
