Your writing sucks!!! [ #MondayMusings ]

“Your writing sucks and people laugh behind your back at what you write!!!!!!” Crushing? You bet your bottom dollar, it was. I was so heartbroken as it was said by a blogging friend fiend who retaliated over a perceived misdeed/misspoken word by me for her. Without waiting to clarify anything, she declared me Brutus and […]

When you are feeling blue, adding lemon can make you purple!

This year’s Bangalore trip saw me catching up with loads of friends, which meant that I got to check out tonnes of neat cafe there. One such get together saw me at Claytopia in Koramangala. We deigned to sit in the open courtyard, fanned by the green foliage of the tree cover. Our curiosity was […]

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 […]

Save me from these Mother India please!!!

With mother’s day approaching fast, corporate gimmicks of every hue and shapes can be seen advertised massively. From restaurants to jewellery stores to you -name-it – everyone wants to cash in on this band wagon. Oh yes there are loads of blog writing contests too on this theme, which is how this blog has come […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

Dreamcatcher – to catch a dream………

Dreamcatcher A jaunt amidst the colourful stalls at the much talked about Surajkund crafts mela this week was rewarded with a few quirky picks. 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 […]

All that sparkles, is it really worth the hullabaloo!?!

Real Women, Real Preferences You will be hard pressed to find a woman who doesn’t like jewellery or is not moved by the mere mention of it. I remember my grandmas and aunts making such a hullabaloo during my older cousin’s weddings over jewellery – the worth of the bride coming in or the daughter […]

#KashmirTravelDiaries: A floating postoffice on the Dal lake

While roaming on the Dal Boulevard, I espied a gorgeous houseboat with the red and white signage of the Indian postal office. Curious I ventured forth to explore further and to my delight, it turned out to be the first and only Floating Post Office in India, gloriously standing tall in a charming backdrop of […]
