#AdoptTheBanner

An animal lover, importantly a dog lover it really concerns me how many  dogs are abandoned or are in need for help. While I do my bit to help them out time to time, be it volunteering at animal shelters or feeding strays I think eventually it is never enough because there is always yet…

#TravelBlog : Koh Samui, Thailand

When the year is ending and you realize you still haven’t planned for an annual vacation that was already planned for at the beginning of the year; you panic. This has to be one of those trips where we went with basic research and no discussion. Our lives became busier and while we looked forward…

#TravelBlog : Darjeeling, West Bengal

Okay no apologies for being absent here. Truth is I have been travelling a lot and then there was work and pending reviews for the book blog and honestly there was less time to ease out and breathe. Travel takes up a lot of time, but your otherwise daily routine. But what makes it worth the…

#TravelBlog : Mcleodganj

I was talking to this colleague of mine about his latest travel to Kasauli when I first got this idea of penning down a travel post for the places I have been to. The thing is, even though the internet throws up lots and lots of information, relevancy and accuracy of the same can never…

Murphy

So this is what it feels like awaiting a miracle, that you love with all your heart, even before it graces your life! Dear Murf! I have waited for you for the longest time in my life. As a kid I have pined for a pet but my parents refused one citing the fact that…

How is married life treating you?

I get asked this a lot and for someone who is still awkwardly married (in my head) I wince! I mean how is married life supposed to treat someone? You think through to get married right? And God forbid! If you were to answer that? Would they really want to hear details? I think not!…

Goodbyes

We don’t say goodbye anymore, we say leave me alone. I don’t want you. You’re not worth my time. I’m not sorry for breaking your heart because it was never even mine.  I read this article on Thought Catalogue that said, “We Don’t Say Goodbye Anymore, We Just Disappear” and it got me thinking. My initial reaction…
