What real love feels like

When I fell in love with my husband in college, I was overwhelmed with that feeling. How could I love someone that much?! And then years later, we brought Reiko home. The moment I held her, I knew that for her, I would throw Abhinav under the bus without a second’s thought. When I was…

10 things to do in Yercaud

Almost every summer I take off on a solo trip. It’s my time for solitude. This year I had one coming up in October and plus, summertime was also about school holidays! My son was at home for 2 months and after a lot of planning we ended up zeroing on Yercaud. Funnily, the trip…

Where did we go wrong?

You know my biggest fear? That one day, I would look at the man my son had become, and wonder what went wrong with my parenting. That, he would be far from the sensitive, loving, generous and honest boy I am raising. That my values, my teachings won’t mean anything. That I was an unsuccessful…

Those 6 months

Do you believe in Astrology and fortune tellers? I don’t. Well except for that crazy fascination with Sun signs during the growing years. Looking up for the best matches; Scorpio goes well with Cancer and Pisces, Leo and Gemini are a bad combo. Apparently. Thankfully, I grew up and learnt that people don’t need the…

Thank You

I am not a poetess and I don’t pretend to be. Just another girl telling what she feels. That someone sitting on her couch, trying hard not to slouch. Thinking how far she’s come, and how life isn’t always about fun. We say thank you when everything goes good. And thank we definitely should. Thanks…

Take a chance on me

Exactly an year ago, this day was my last working day. I had quit a 7 figure, salaried job to focus on my passions for fitness, food and travel. I had quit the security of having a solid financial backup to constantly wondering about the income coming in. I had quit multiple vacations every year…

#metoo #mentoo #whatswrongwiththeworld

If you are a woman, or a man who is friendly, understanding, respectful and non-sexist towards the women in your life, you might have heard multiple stories of them getting molested and abused. The saddest part is no matter how varied are the people in any group, when this conversation begins, every one has something…

The art of getting high

Disclaimer: There is a lot of profanity used in this post. I feel very passionately about this topic and literally boils my blood every time I think of it. So, I profusely apologize for the language used. I hope you will understand why I did that when you read it and maybe feel the way…

Cruising Away

Handsome men, tantalizing cocktails, exciting events, delicious food, gorgeous pools is what you think of when the word “luxury cruise” is dropped at you. If that’s what you are expecting, exit right away! Cause we had none of that. My friend Vanita was invited to be a part of a new luxury cruise liner’s maiden…

Fight Club

Somebody once called me a popularity w**** (not the exact word used by them, but exactly what was meant), trying to piggyback on social media, spreading lies and trying to get famous. Get famous? Really? I have a paltry 1000 followers, and a few hundreds read my blog post. Sometimes the likes on my posts…
