*02.46 pm BST* Listening to Lata Mangeshkar's melodious voice singing जीवनात ही घडी अशीच राहु दे, प्रीतिच्या फुलावरी वसंत नाचु दे, जीवनात ही घडी अशीच राहु दे on my earphones. The streets are wet and greasy from the drizzle that hasn't stopped since morning. An old white lady walks towards the bus station in full … Continue reading Hello, from the grey country 🙂
“Oh hello, Mrs Sprightley!” “Oh hello, Sugar!” “Would you like some tea?” “Yes! With a drop of lemon in it.” “Oh! And something to go with it?” “Some cookies, please.” “Cookiesssss? Lovelyyyyyy!" Back in December 2020, when I was still in Mumbai, Komal and I would enact this famous exchange from K3G in a British … Continue reading The cat’s big move, ii
*7.30 pm* Had a stressful day today with too many things to do and very little time. So I picked up a pen and began writing in my diary about everything on my mind. That's when I thought of going back and reading about some Septembers from the past. I wondered what I was doing … Continue reading September issue
*9.49 pm* Just had Pizza for dinner so we’re good. Last Sunday, I stepped out of my house after two months. My parents and I planned to visit some old family friends who had lost a loved one recently. Unexpectedly, it turned out to be a much-needed getaway after months of digital screen time. So, … Continue reading Back to my roots
What do I write about Covid-19 & the lock-down that hasn’t already been written? It is scary, governments suck, the World is shut, nature is breathing, the ozone is healing, work from home is draining, sleep cycles are messed up, mental health issues are rising, there's no motivation, economy is bad, pay-cuts & unemployment. Hmph! … Continue reading My Lock-down blog
*12.43 pm* I love Decembers. The cold winds, cozy sleep under the blanket, the warmth of hoodies, holidays and the party mood, hot chocolate at any time of the day and conclusions. December has it all. For the last two weeks I was occupied with a lot of work. On the first weekend of December, … Continue reading a feeling called December
*5.43 pm* Truly delighted and proud of my cooking skills. Its hereditary, guys - I make awesome food. It is quite difficult to write after a gap (of even 15 days). It is difficult to remember all the events that could be worth mentioning in my blog. My mind categorically forgets the occurrence and the … Continue reading Two Year Anniversary!
I visited Leh-Ladakh in July 2017 - a trip that has been etched in my memory permanently for various reasons. I had planned to write this post right after the trip, and it has been two years (almost) I have procrastinated to put it down. But the memories are still so vivid that I can … Continue reading Hi Leh
*3.30 pm* I dislike summers. Where I stay, summers burn your skin like you've bathed with fire, or worse. It is probably my least favourite season. And you know what, it has only started. I wonder how hot its going to get in next two months. Or three. Last week, I had to work only … Continue reading a month so mixed up
of scrumptious street-food, a perfect companion...and more
*10.49 pm* cool breeze and a distant sound of a train honking... April began on a great note. It was the first Monday of the month when I had an interview & got an offer to join as a Content Writer at a company in Mumbai. I was obviously thrilled at this as moving to … Continue reading The cat’s big move.
Dear Mangi, It has been so long. I miss you. It is a weird world here. India is just a part of it but it is so huge and full of life that I feel India is itself the Earth. But I met a man with big round spectacles and he told me there are … Continue reading A letter from my Earth boyfriend
A travel note from April 2014.
Had a chance to visit the forest once again in December 2016 and it was an equally beautiful experience.
A field trip to Kankavli, Maharashtra- Dec 2015
I wrote this short paragraph back in 2012 and it has proved to be my travel motivation since then. Maybe, it can do something for you too. Cheers 🙂 Travel has been by far my most favourite hobby. Travel teaches you in a way no human ever can. Travel isn’t a person, a thing to … Continue reading Travel, you idiot.
