It was an excellent evening of literature with readings by several well established poets/authors/playwriters from India and Europe.

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!

Ginger & Carrot cake with a twist

Come winter time and my memories are of “gajar ka halwa” being prepared in quantities generous enough to feed a couple of large baraats. This was the scene at my house, nani’s house, my friends houses; year after year – I had “gajar ka halwa” coming out of my ears. As a result, I was totally put off by it for […]
