Old Shoes Wear Best – Spring Cleaning

I spent the weekend doing what I called “spring cleaning” though we’re deep into summer here in New Delhi. It just felt like what a “main character” from a movie would do. I finally got to sorting through some of the shoes that I wear regularly. Weirdly, I get sentimentally attached to some clothes and…

It Is A Beautiful World, uhh, Patriarchal World

Note: This post has been in writing for a while now. I wrote some bits of it a year back but never completed it. It is a long post. These are some snippets from some of the conversations I have on a daily basis as a small business owner. Most vendors I interact with assume…

My First Love

Disclaimer: This is a very random post and not sponsored. 😛 The year was 2011. My family and I were travelling through Egypt. Our tour stopped at a local bazaar for shopping. As we scrutinized the shops wondering where we should go with all the vendors trying to catch our attention, we heard the words…

An Adult’s List of Favourite Animated Movies

The first animated movie I saw was the original Lion King. I remember howling through bits of the movie. The first animated movie I saw in the hall was Toy Story and I was sold! I am not big on movies anymore. The only genres of movies I watch are – horror and animated. While…

May 2022 Life Update: Trying Out New Hobbies & Skills

Sustainable Gifting Ideas For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, the 8th of May. While I am not a fan of celebrating these Hallmark holidays, I do think that mothers are the most underappreciated people across the globe and hence, deserve a day of pampering and love. I decided to combine my love for being more sustainable with this holiday…

Dating Life: What I Want In A Man?

While growing up I had this long checklist of what my ‘prince charming’ will be like – tall, dark, dimples, rich, funny, etc. But over the past 3-4 years, the list has gotten a lot shorter and way more practical. The men I’ve dated have helped me identify the qualities I’d appreciate in the person…

My April Reads

My target for the rest of 2022 is to read atleast 3-4 books every month. The problem is that I usually don’t pick up a book till halfway through the month, then start panic reading books and then usually fall in love with the book and spend entire nights reading. I want to read more…

Relationships – Domestic Violence

Trigger warning – DV Two things have led to me sitting down and writing about a topic that I don’t know much about firsthand. A few days back clips from Johnny Depp’s trial, in his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, started showing up on my YouTube. It ironically coincided with me completing reading…

Sustainable Living: My Veganism Journey

If you’ve been following me over the past 2 years, you’ll know that I’ve been trying to be more sustainable in my ways. Over the past few months, I have been trying to cut out all animal and dairy products from my life since the meat and dairy industry are extremely polluting and water-intensive. Being…
