Dhoni ki #No1Yaari

Dhoni ki #No1Yaari

So, once again India has returned back to not bothering about any other sport but Cricket. Love it or hate it, it is one game that unites the nation and I love Cricket for that. I remember the Cricket bug bit me while in school and there has been no cure since. The game has changed, the players have … [Read more…]

Sleeping Ugly

Temples. Pious, divine, holy temples. Prohibiting menstruating women to enter their premises since centuries. Because periods and purity are mutually exclusive. Well.

Carrying … [Read more…]

Kaas Plateau – A Riot Of Colors

The list of places I want to visit and things I want to experience is growing longer day by day. So much so that I can’t stop questioning if a lifetime will ever be enough? Such thoughts disturb me and then I make a mental note of packing as much experience and travel as possible before … [Read more…]
