Banaras – The City of Light & Liberation:  Moksha-Prakāshikā Kāshī (Travel Guide)

I have been obsessed with the idea of Banaras for years now. I don’t remember how the obsession started (probably thanks to Instagram) but for the last 5-6 years I have longed to go to Banaras to just sit on the ghats and soak in the spirituality. I am not a religious person but I am a spiritual person and I really enjoy the spirituality that engulfs popular holy places.

Delhi Heritage Walk – Tughluqabad Fort

Hello hello! 2023 is off to a lousy start blogging-wise. As much as I wanted to spend time writing last week, I was all out of ideas. The new year hasn’t really had that ideal start for me with the year starting off with a big fight with my father. (Yay?) The fight triggered A…

2023: My Hopes and Wishes

2+0+2+3 = 7 Seven is considered by many to be a lucky number so maybe the year is already off to a good start? I have many hopes and wishes for how I want this year to go. But my biggest wish this year is to stop sitting on the sideline and make things happen…

My 2022 Favourites

I’m not even exaggerating when I say that it felt like yesterday when I was writing about my 2021 favourites. How has this year just swooshed by? It literally went like…January, February, March…30th December! Where did the rest of the year go and what did I do with all that time? I’ll definitely keep ranting…

Kumbalgarh Fort Kumbalgarh is located in Rajasthan and can be reached via road from Jodhpur and Udaipur. Kumbalgarh Fort was built…

I Said Goodbye To My Grandpa

I’m sitting on the steps outside my grandfather’s house. He passed away 2 hours ago. As much as I want to be practical and see it as a relief for him, I just can’t. It’s not fair. It’s not fair that 10 days back he was walking, eating, and chilling with us and now he’s…

Falling in Love with my City: Delhi Heritage Walk To Purana Qila

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Delhi. I’ve lived most of my life in this city and I’ve had my issues with it. But the city seems to have grown up alongside me, and I’ve been on the mend – trying to mend my broken relationship with the city. Rediscovering places, trying new things, and…

Quiet Holiday In The Hills: Offbeat India

To be very honest, I’m not the biggest fan of visiting the hills mainly cause I hate the drive up and down. The winding route just makes me very anxious. I also don’t enjoy the crowds that throng to the hills during any long holiday in India. So when my mum proposed a short trip…

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. The songs, the movies, the stories about our fight for Independence still give me goosebumps. Knowing that less than a century back…

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…
