  What do you generally expect when you go to a museum? A lot of history, old stashes of books, aesthetics in the corners and other same old stuff. Right?

Through My Soulful Lens: Holipura Village Visit Around Chambal

  What comes to your mind, when you first think of Chambal? Do you think about Phoolan Devi or Paan Singh Tomar? I know even the name ‘Chambal’ creates a fear in our mind but the time has changed. The ravines of the Chambal village no longer house the famous dacoits. The ravines of Chambal (Madhya Pradesh’s Morena and Uttar Pradesh’s Bundalkhand) might definitely be a house to a thousand folklores once upon a time, the ones that are mostly narrated by our grannies in an attempt to threaten us but the village holds much more than what we’ve always …

As I walked into the hot flash of air and a buzzling crowd covering the streets full of colourful dupattas, bangles everywhere and that strong tingling spicy smell emanating from the street food shops down the lane, I found myself on the iconic street of Hyderabad. Hyderabad, a city with an enticing plethora of options for food, shopping should be labelled a paradise for travellers and hoggers. Hyderabad, the city that is famous for its scrumptious biryani, beautiful pearls, glittery bangles and Irani cafes that dish out lip-smacking Irani chai and cookies was a great experience for me. While I was …

Dear 25 Year Old Me, This Is What I Have To Say

  So recently a friend asked me, “What advice would you give your 25- year- old self?” and I was mum.

I stood there for a while taking deep breaths, looking out of the window, trying to play with my fingers a little, gathering all that courage and looking for the right moment to retch them all out.
