Dilli In Transit

Apart from the weddings, this was the part of the trip I was most looking forward to. Never thought I would be this excited to be back in Delhi NCR. My time spent there was the nicest among all the days.  This is what I did: # Got a haricut. At Bella Madonna, Galleria. Loved it.  # Had breakfast by myself at my most favourite place in Gurgaon – Sakley’s Forest Cafe # Went to my old office. Experienced a strange feeling walking through those doors. Sat at my old desk. Sipped on lemon tea courtesy Shankar Bhaiya. Met a lot of people I had left behind. Exchanges numerous hugs…

It all began on a Friday while I was scanning Hindustan Times City for some client related stuff and came across the advertisement for Disney’s all new animated movie –‘Tangled’. Knowing my experiences with Harry Potter’s latest, my love for animation and the fact that I have…

Almost half a year in black and white

A lot has happened over the months. It is almost the end of October and I am overwhelmed by the fact that I have spent the past 6 months being employed and so far, been doing okay. The cliched ‘corporate’ was meant to be this big, bad world which was to remind you, visually, of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. So far, there have been bad days, days when I have wanted to throw myself off a cliff, days when I have wanted to throw others off a really high cliff (tied to a cannonball, of course); but overall, it feels good to reiterate, I’ve been okay. Today, I heard the most…
