A Getaway to Creative Wonderland: #WanderlustWednesday

  It’s a cloudy Sunday morning. But the sun, though hiding behind the rain pregnant clouds, steals in a shower of golden glow upon me- or is it a creative glow?  I’m blissfully unaware of the fact that this will be an eventful day; packed in a mean, scintillating punch.  

Of Movies and National Anthem

Last Saturday we went out on a cosy family date to the cinemas. Spider-Man: Homecoming released just a day before and we had already read and heard rave reviews. It had been a while since we had done a movie together as a family. The 9-year-old, doesn’t enjoy movies too much, especially in the theatres. The 19-year-old is …

War and Pieces: #BarAThon

Mrs. Pammi Chopra is our buxom, next door neighbour, with an extremely foul mouth. She, along with her meek husband, Mr. Chopra who has a tiny frame that surprisingly dons a handle bar moustache, their two over boisterous kids; live in the apartment across ours. Mrs. Chopra’s favourite hobby it seems, is to pick up arguments …

#ThursdayTreeLove 11: Morning Mysticism of a Mountain Tree

It’s our last morning at Dhanachuli, a quiet little hamlet in the Himalayas. It’s a Thursday morning too. A day when we share our Tree Love. As I walk past the apple, pear and walnut trees, I look at them quizzically and wonder whether to feature them in my today’s post. I take some random …

#MondayMusings:Way Back into Time 

We set out for a road trip yesterday, a rainy May morning. The rains were a pleasant respite from the sweltering summer, and they made our journey an intensely happy one.  I was excited as hell as we were making a pit stop to my birth place, Pantnagar before heading out to the cool climes …

#ThursdayTreeLove: Pristine & Gracious 

“God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers, and clouds and stars.” – Martin Luther King On a mid-monsoon morning, the wispy clouds powdered across the sky, draw out designs of divinity over the glimmering river Kali. The gracious trees bow and behold the sight in …

#MondayMusings: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Read : Girls Must Have Fun! Early this month I took a trip to Goa with my bestie. She has a little Enid Blytonish pad, beautifully furnished with immaculate whites, where we spent three dreamy days. It was my first girlie trip. Having heard so much about all the fun girls have when they go …

#ThursdayTreeLove: Standing Tall, Arm in Arm

It’s balmy sunset at Thalassa, the Greek Resturant that lies ensconced on top of a cliff, at the Vagator beach in Goa.

As the sun peers through the cloudy sky; the wisps of cobalt yellow rays or are they pixie dust, tumble into the evening sea that placidly shimmers in a magical glory.
