#ThankfulThursdays: 5 Vices I am thankful for

I confess I have become addicted to the thought-provoking writing prompts via #thankfulthursdays by Amrita and her gang of girls. Every week I wait for it eagerly and they never disappoint. But this week’s prompt is such a tantalizing one that I think the ladies have surpassed themselves. Can you imagine being thankful for your […]

#BookSlutThursday- Week4

#BookSlutThursday Week 4 The moment I saw this 50th anniversary edition of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, said to be her autobiographical novel and is only one that she ever wrote, I just had to pick it up. It’s been on my TBR since ages and I couldn’t resist when I saw this beautiful […]

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

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 […]

#FridayFotoFiction: Of an era gone by…….

#FridayFotoFiction Blue spiked hairdo poked it warily with his cro-ray while the other kids watched from behind the safety shield, afraid that it might blow up. The lifeless pile of rags next to it stirred, making Bluey jump back, all his bravado vanishing. It coughed and sat up straight to reveal a weather-beaten wrinkled face […]

#ThankfulThursday: Thankful for love

#ThankfulThursday When I saw this week’s prompt for #thankfulthursday, I was a little flummoxed (my love life is at an epic low at the moment). Thankful for love – any kind- hmmmmm!! My mental gears whirred and vroomed while I plied myself with a bottle of red wine (you see writing about love warrants wine) Then […]

Not just the traditional art and crafts of India but curios inspired from lifestyle, movies and of course the West. Everywhere one looked, there was a rainbow of knickknacks, vibrant textiles, jewellery […]

#BookSlutThursday – Week3

#BookSlutThursday Week3 I have pulled out my most favourite reads from last year off my shelves for a re-read – Forty rules of love by Elif Shafak. A brilliantly woven tale of love, mystique and devotion – and I love the twin thread in the narration. Have no superlatives to add-on to Rumi’s quotes sprinkled […]

Guestblogging : “The confessions of a stationery enthusiast”

Guestblogging “The confessions of a stationery enthusiast” I love stationery. There is no two ways about it, new notebooks make me excited, I want to write in them but at the same time I want them to stay perfect. When I was younger starting school meant a whole new set of stationery, from pens to rulers, […]

#BarWoWe: The tattered faith

#WordyWednesday #4 – January 2017 – #BarWoWe   A gust of wind howled outside sending a shiver creaking through the window shutters. Muhu peered out of the dirty window pane, squinting against the low visibility at the slivers of light appearing on the horizon now as the weak sun attempted to break through the thick […]

#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 […]
