Contentment Conundrum

While away on a short trip, I kept thinking about “contentment”. Humans are constantly running and chasing after something throughout their life.

75 Years of Indian Independence: From The View Point Of A Proud Indian

15th August 1947 I’ve grown up listening to stories of how India gained its independence. The stories of the many who laid down their lives hoping for a better future for our country.

Friday Fotos

Yes, I misspelt ‘photos’ to make the title sound catchy. I take a 100 photos every week and most just end up in my hard drive, to be seen once every 3-4 years only to be forgotten again. I’ve been meaning to share more of my photography here and I can’t think of a better…

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…

My Investment Advice For People In Their 20s

As a 31-year-old, I find myself brimming with advice for people in their 20s. Ironically, when I was in my 20s I hated getting advice from someone older, so I am going to try and keep this post as breezy as possible. As much as your 20s are a time to enjoy life to the…

Things I Wish Would Remain The Same From The Last Two Years

The world is slowly opening up with COVID related regulations slowly being done away with. While I’m excited to go back to normal life, there are some things from the past two years that I wish would continue. Here’s my list – 1. Maintaining 6 ft distance from each other in public. I love this…
