[ #Opinion ] Body / Slut / Image Shaming | #Guestpost by Riitu Chugh |

It’s in the genes I guess. A skeleton which weighs all of 69 kilos as multiple body analyses have reconfirmed. An inherited sluggish thyroid gland. And yet despite a thyroxin supplement and a reasonably ‘light‘ diet ( includes dairy and occasionally eggs ) but no non vegetarian food,  limited fat,  alcohol on rare occasions and […]

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 |BarAThon|

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 […]

A health & fitness pact with myself

Ever since I hit 40, I have become a little conscious of my health and what I eat. I made certain changes in my lifestyle to eliminate some habits which I felt were not good in the long run and added some which, well…. we shall see how they turn out to be 😉 This […]

“Adventure isn’t hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day-to-day obstacles in life.” – John Amatt They say we all carry a stock of Karma akin to debt which needs to be paid off, regardless of who we are and where we […]

#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 […]

The struggle ends when Gratitude begins!!

So often we forget how and why we got something we desired that the moment we get it; the thanks gets lost in the excitement. This April I had  huge changes in my life and watched it all unfold with a bowed head to the almighty for his generosity. (I could finally say “someone up there really […]

[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 […]
