Welcome to Loose Leaves

A loose leaf is a piece of paper that is unbound. The good thing about them is the freedom they give - you can scribble, you can start something new...the not-so-good thing about them is you tend to lose them. Even then, sometimes you find them while searching for something else...and sometimes that is a pleasant surprise.

Loose leaf also refers to tea. What looseness of tea leaves can do to bring out the flavour of tea,  hopefully,  "looseness" of paper can sometimes do to thoughts. Actually, loose leaf can refer to tobacco and other recreational herbs as well. I leave it to the reader's imagination or experience as to the relevant analogy with loose paper and thoughts. After all, a common reaction to listening to anecdotes that are not very believable in my native language, Bengali, means "high" (which tend to be tall too) tales (গাঁজাখুরি গপ্পো).

In this blog I will post random musings from time to time with the hope once in a while you may pick a page up and find it interesting....if not, that is fine since these are loose leaves anyway.
