Delhi October

Getting started with the November project, I wanted the first post to be about something happy that I am thankful for. When I first heard that the Eid-ul-Adha holidays in Oman were going to be a week long (Yay for living in Oman – UAE only got three days 😛), my first reaction was to pledge that I wouldn’t stay in and mope about the lack of exciting things to … Continue reading “Delhi October”

Day 12# Sorely Missed.

If someone were to ask me this, say – a year ago – I wouldn’t even have to blink before I replied – home.  But now the story has changed. I am home. Surrounded by all the comforts and reassurances that family brings. However, the heart is never really satiated. So even though I have nothing to complain about, there are some things I miss dearly. # Mobility. The ability … Continue reading “Day 12# Sorely Missed.”


Another thing I love about India is the fauna that one finds, as a regularity.  Apart from domestic rodents, of course – I’ve loved the fact that I could make friends with the dogs, cats, birds and even pigs and cattle in my surroundings. I’m sure people in first world countries would probably turn up their noses at the mention of the last two animals, but I’m not attempting to … Continue reading “Estrayed”

One Day…

A toast. To the days when the roof was leaky. The midnight birthday revelries. To the horror that were exams. The peals of laughter at silly jokes at group study sessions. To the dreadful lack of nutrition. The small joys that chicken lollypops could bring. To missing family, but having friends around. The clouds floating through windows. To being angry with everything. The singing aloud while on trips. To not being able … Continue reading “One Day…”

The Korba Wedding.

The small wonders of life constantly surprise me.  I still smile thinking of how worried I was about moving to Delhi at the end of my post graduation. Little did I know that these would be some of the best years of my life.  Like I always maintain, the people matter most and this post is about one of the most amazing people who I came into close acquaintance with, during … Continue reading “The Korba Wedding.”

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 … Continue reading “Dilli In Transit”

Time Freeze

It’s been five months but it feels like I was never gone. The same streets. Broken in the way I had seen them last. The same turquoise walls of House Number 2683. The Delhi winters that I came to fall in love with. After a really beautiful wedding creating an overwhelming number of memories, my mind is in a freeze.

Winter Deprived

November is almost coming to an end.  If I were in Gurgaon now, my immensely warm white comforter would be out – as would be my Zara overcoats.  There would be no need for the fan and Shankar Bhaiya at office would be requested to bring in the lemon tea first thing in the morning.  The huge glass windows of Vatika Triangle would probably be all foggy in the mornings … Continue reading “Winter Deprived”

Time Of Our Lives

To think of it, seems like only yesterday that I walked into the office of a rather unknown firm – a R & PM Edelman. I had never heard of them, not before I had begun organising internships for my public relations batch at college. By the end of the college year, in a whirl, I had interviewed with them, got selected and chose Gurgaon as a desired geography. Although … Continue reading “Time Of Our Lives”
