Lord of the Files snips my work wings | #barathon |

When I wanted to flex my career wings and step out of the homely cocoon to find work in a metropolis like New Delhi, I faced vociferous objections from the parental authorities. “It’s unsafe for women!” “Men prey on a women’s vulnerabilities and coerce them to do things.” “Marriage and kids is a safer/better thing.

THE FAULT IN OUR STARES There! Look at it! She has pierced her eyebrow. What on earth is wrong with these people? Nudge. Wink. Point with lifted eyebrows n tilt of head – object of our introspection – a midriff exposed on a thin young girl in the mall. He has a tattoo – did […]

Love, Stalk, Kill! { Women Safety } #MondayMusings

Even as we were rejoicing the confirmation of the death penalty for Nirbhayata’s rapists, another horrific rape filled the timelines. This time it was from Rohtak, Haryana where a man and his cronies abducted, raped, mutilated and killed a girl who had refused to marry him. That this came so close on the heels of […]

Fallen from Grace {Friday Reflection}

Moving into a new place comes with its set of new faces and personalities. I have been doing my bit to get on with the social activities of the colony to familiarize myself with the peeps here. One such lady seems to be a regular on the morning walks and pretty soon we were exchanging […]

#Reflections – My first and I loved it | #AtoZchallenge 2017|

I had missed last year’s #AtoZchallenge by a whisker, prompting me to make a strong mental note for 2017. When March rolled in, I posted my theme reveal post with loads of fanfare. But when the other bloggers started panicking over themes, how many post written, etc I started to re-think this challenge. After all these were […]

From restaurants to jewellery stores to you -name-it – everyone wants to cash in on this band wagon.

[Z] Zen in the Glen |#atozchallenge 2017|

As scores of multi colored prayer flags fluttered in the wind, welcoming us in their calming embrace, we drove into a teeny tiny town named Khalstee, enroute to Leh. The last few hours of the ride had been bone achingly painful and we were grateful for the respite from jostling in the back seat of our […]

2012: I was on my first ever trip to Udaipur – one of the most popular cities of Rajasthan on the tourist circuit. I found it to be charming, friendly and thrumming with a very joyful vibe. Its pretty famous for the Lake Pichola and the Lake palace hotel managed by the Taj group of […]

[X] Xenodocheionology |#atozchallenge 2017|

Xenedocheionology owes its origin to the Greek language and according to Phrontistery means the love of hotels. I loved this word a lot and it made writing my X post for #atoz quite easy as there are a number of places which I must mention for their uniqueness in terms of hospitality and the wow factor […]

[W] Wish upon the stars |#atozchallenge 2017|

2013: I had taken my parents off to a Rajasthan travel trip. Our itinerary read New Delhi-Jaisalmer-Jodhpur-Rawla Narlai- Udaipur – New Delhi. This was like a ten-day long trip and we did everything from train, to by road to flight and from staying in five-star hotels, to desert camps to a boutique havelli to a […]

2010 saw us head for Coorg for a family vacation on my birthday in March. I had been living in Bangalore at that time and keen to explore the places around. I was excited to see the coffee plantations and maybe spot some Vanilla plants too as I had heard this region’s climate favoured its […]

The dictionary meaning of Unzymotic is listed as fabulous which is why I decided to use this word for my alphabet U post, for what I am about to list out here is nothing less than that. You know how they say, it’s not the destination but the journey that matters? I have taken this […]

2010: I had moved to Bangalore as an experimental stint and spent that year in exploring it as much as possible. I had been researching the net and listed out places to visit and photograph. So, one fine morning, armed with my trusted Canon DSLR, a bottle of water and some snacks, I headed out to […]
