#MagicOfLove: Where art thou, my Romeo!?!

I am a die-hard romantic at the hearts – no matter how many times its been broken and crushed! I still believe in my romeo-juliet tale (with happy endings though). So when Romila took out the #magicoflove contest for Valentines day, I decided to write a love letter to my Romeo (where ever he is, whoever […]

#KashmirTravelDiaries: Of magical potions & oils

Poloview market, just off Residency road in downtown Srinagar is the place to go for all your shopping; from Kashmiri embroidery worked sarees, scarves, stoles to bags to shoes to even aromatic oils. It’s the latter which intrigued me as I am obsessed with smelling good and burning incense and what not in the home […]

#KashmirTravelDiaries: Chasing a snow dream

Every year, the onset of winters brings me to dreaming of seeing snowfall- a childhood wish. This year the hilly regions of Himachal and Kashmir have been seeing more than abundant snowfall as evident from tantalising pictures on FB. To make matters worse, my inner devil decided to chant ” I want to see snowfall!!!!!” […]

Travel Diaries: Kerala / Wayanad / Pookote Lake

Pookote / pookode Lake is a charming jewel in Wayanad’s crown. 15 Kms from Kalpetta, this serene freshwater body lies surrounded by thick-set rainforest on all sides. The state tourism department has developed a children’s park, boating facility, fresh water aquarium, handicrafts & spices emporium and a walking path all around the perimeter of the lake […]

Banarasiya- the essence of Banaras!

          I was revolted at the sight of the holy city of Banaras during my visit in December 2013 – the garbage heaps, people spitting with gay abandon, peeing on roadsides with zero bashfulness, the dug up roads, and the stench; that god-awful stinking stench which just doesn’t seem to get […]

Superfast or Superslow?

I have been a big advocate of traveling by train and have some lovely journey memories too; but some of my recent experiences have left me in big big doubt about their reliability now. There was a recent news article about the scam concerning the Rail Neer where the contractors and railway staff had colluded […]

Of lazy breakfasts & beach bumming!

While planning the Goa trip, the gourmet offerings of this beach city were top of our list to explore. Needless to say, we researched some food and travel blogs, got tips from friends and family and made a sumptuous list which looked too big for our four days there. Undaunted, we went at with a true […]

Marching to Goa!!

10.03.2015 So bday dhamaal continues unabated. Next on the cards was this trip that got planned for Goa with Pallavi (strangely, despite our intense bonding, it’s our first trip) and all thanks to Sonu Di (yeah she is my biggest holiday benefactor these days- love you Di 🙅😘) as she had some vacation miles at […]

Haseen aur rangeen in March 

05.03.2015 Holi rolled in, dolled up in gorgeous colours and a very un-holy weather! The unexpected rain madness continued, making it slightly chilly but with plenty of bright sunshine! I am not the biggest fan of this festival- infact I find it the most terrible one! But this year is special and so thought to […]

A mad hatter in march

01.01.2015 Since past couple of years, a new trend had emerged in my life as most of my friends, cousins, peers, etc had reached ‘that’ milestone of turning 40! Big celebrations for ‘THE’ 40th naming day with great pomp and show had become the norm around me. ‘That won’t be me,’ disdained the sensibility in […]

Of Snow peaks, hydrangeas and a mutt!

Sonu didi’s cottage in Khabrar, near Nainital has been beckoning me since ages for a trip but somehow it never materialised in so many years. So when the opportunity presented itself during this Diwali dinner, we made up our minds to come down as soon as we are able to. November is not an ideal […]
