New Age Nightmare

Last night I dreamt. I don’t dream too often these days. It’s probably the quality of sleep that decides whether you dream or you don’t. For some reason, I haven’t been sleeping too well of late and thus the number of dreams I’ve had have dwindled in the past few months. I have had some…


2017 in retrospect

The year 2017 comes to an end for me with mixed feelings and emotions. Despite wanting to write this post that reflected on the year that went by my energies were directed towards other personal commitments. However, the words threaten to spill through as I try to absorb a shocking news I received yesterday. This…


Are you a Lifestyle Blogger?

A few days ago I stumbled upon a thread of tweets in my feed where someone had posted a question which went like this, “How can one be a fashion, travel, lifestyle, food blogger at the same time? I find these multiple hashtags amusing.” The person who had posted the question had also tweeted earlier…


Small Joys of Vancouver

It’s that time of the year when I revel in the festive mood in my own sweet way by doing things that give me pleasure. Diwali, the festival of lights fills me with warmth and makes me sit back to reminisce on all the good things that life offers to me. Some of these joys…


A Rare Homage. ‘We Are The World’ Blogfest #WATWB

I had once written about a family who diligently fed a large pack of stray dogs in their vicinity every single day. You can read the post here. Today I wish to write about a member from the same family who does little acts of kindness towards animals. As a child the daughter of this family…

When a certain portal approached me recently to write about them for their blog on the occasion of ‘International Women’s Day’ I was clueless on what exactly went into the thought behind women’s day. In essence celebrating womanhood and their achievements was my idea of the significance of women’s day. Although, I often wondered why…


Pigeoned For Life

We’re facing a peculiar problem at home these days. Since quite sometime now, we’ve been plagued by a flock of stubborn souls who refuse to let us alone. Well, they literally come in flocks and take over the tiny terrace that our living room opens into.  A heavenly place that it once was has now been…


Lost and Found in my Dreams

As a child I used to get weird dreams. One such recurrent dream was that the five-year old me was stranded on an unknown railway station en route to our native place in the south. I would dream about the train chugging away from the station taking my blissfully ignorant parents away from me who were…


Santa’s retirement

As the year comes to an end, and the coming year heralds new beginnings, I slip into a retrospective mode. Looking back, I wonder what it is that I consistently felt gratitude for in the years gone by. Overall, the gratitude pours in for all the good things in life that I am blessed with, a bunch…


The Shakti Ride

Here I am with the next post for the Shakti series that I started recently. If you’ve missed it, read the first post here. Shakti is the face of the new age woman who is found amidst day-to-day situations which are common maladies in today’s fast-changing world. If you ponder on these seemingly normal instances that…
