My Hopes For The Last Quarter Of 2022

We are officially in the last quarter of the year. I feel like the year flew by far too fast. I’ve barely had any time to catch my breath and time has just been rushing by. Honestly, I wish I had used my time better. I have felt incredibly demotivated for most of 2022. It…

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…

Monsoon In My City

I love rainy season. It feels like the entire world around is getting cleansed for a new start. When I was younger I always connected rains with romance.
