I am in a train returning from Jaipur and this is all I can think of- elephants in Jaipur and not the usual camels associated with the desert state. Apparently I came across one on each day of my short visit, which is mind boggling in itself. I had hoped to see camels roaming the… Continue reading Going Elephantastic in Jaipur
My blog turned two early this year and I missed the notification completely, my head was in the clouds. My strategy, from telling myself that I'd publish every fortnight to publishing multiple times a month (wasn't going to argue with the muses whenever they decided to make their presence felt), I finally settled for at… Continue reading Turning Two and Forty Two
Keep your face to the sunshine, the shadows cannot hurt you. Be the dragon. Recognise your power. Awake, arise, ascend! https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/ascend-cmhr/
Winter has set yet the air is hot and dirty. Delhi was in the news for its smog conditions; the media, the memes, the wats app forwards had so much material to tap and I living 300 kilometres away developed a nagging cough. I'm unsure whether to blame the changing season or the quality of… Continue reading Clearing a queen size smog

Well, that meant I had to egg my family harder to join me in… Continue reading A peek into a Nature festival in the hills
Ok! I need to say this - I'm utterly obsessed with the two cello wielding musicians from Croatia called 2Cellos.

It clasps it in its deceptively small beak and flies away with the prize. The target is… Continue reading Waiting to crow on the golf course
All year long, little hands scribble and scratch, swirls of colours in waves and giant balls. They gleefully rip, many times carelessly snip and then glue the bits. The characters begin to come together; snakes and lamps, planes and trees, traffic lights, Santa, creatures under the sea. Then comes the time when it's imperative… Continue reading Collage
The self imposed ban on the Internet,in the interest of clearing my exams with minimal drama, is over and it is good to be back . Believe me ,there were times when I weakened and gave into the siren's call -I checked my phone! I know for sure now that my Whatsapp status 'busy' was… Continue reading Breaking news!
Do I believe in fate? In karma and just deserts but that doesn't stop me from straining to read tiny columns of the daily horoscope in the newspapers. Chalk it to one of my guilty pleasures quite like the instant noodles - quick, easy, knowing it's not doing wonders for your health but horribly addictive… Continue reading The zodiac wellness pill.
