Of trails and travails.

Every once in a while, the city closes in upon you and you choose to run after the sereneness of the outskirts, the hill stations, the backwaters, the mountains, don’t you? I almost managed to do the same. I say managed because we had failed to acknowledge how many more would also be looking forContinue reading “Of trails and travails.”

From home to away.

A week off from work means going home and then away from home again. Home always is special but the day, when thanks to tech advancement, you are in both cities on the same day, when you leave home in the morning and are away by evening in another city, is the day the starkContinue reading “From home to away.”

Valparai Tales! Part 2.

Contd from… As I sweat in the Bangalore heat, while doing absolutely nothing apart from just breathing, which you would all acknowledge is a very crucial, and from what I know the most important factor for our existence, I think back of the vacation I recently took. And promised a second post on. In myContinue reading “Valparai Tales! Part 2.”

Valparai Tales! Part 1.

As another three day long weekend came up, the crowd of Bangalore, like me, decided to move away from the city to the surrounding hill stations where temperatures dipped and the real feel was more in the fresh early 20’s rather than the tiring late 30’s! What do you expect when seemingly an entire cityContinue reading “Valparai Tales! Part 1.”

Unravel the Travel!

As promised (to no one in general), here’s a continued set of anecdotes from my trip to Gujarat! Let’s begin right from the beginning of the trip, like is the norm unless I choose to write in reverse chronology. That’s a good idea but for another day! Anyone who’s spent even a day on BangaloreContinue reading “Unravel the Travel!”

Life Notes #11.

Once in a while the Life Notes series of posts should be revived. They are so easy to title! 😉 *** I went on a tour to the Indian state of Gujarat with family recently. It was fun filled, exciting, adventurous, reminiscent of the two decades we have spent together. Sure we had our tough momentsContinue reading “Life Notes #11.”

2016 flew by!

What is time? The ticking of the seconds hand. Dawn giving way to dusk. Mondays coming back! The turning of the pages on a calendar. The change of calendars itself! Wikipedia has a more interesting explanation : Time is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of eventsContinue reading “2016 flew by!”

Travel Trivia!

What is one of the perks of living with friends and in a city which has innumerable weekend getaways around? Simple! Weekend getaways with friends. Okay, I promise the rest of the post is more sensible. 😉 After culminating the latest one, I thought I’d pen down some travel trivia for you to go bonkersContinue reading “Travel Trivia!”

Grabbing eyeballs!

The security check queues at the airport can be long, more so if you’re travelling just at the outset of one of India’s most celebrated festivals, the festival of lights, Diwali; also if you’re travelling from Bengaluru, the second home of most Calcuttans, to Calcutta, obviously their first. What better way to pass the timeContinue reading “Grabbing eyeballs!”

The Pixel Way.

Four days ago, I was awkward, silent and judgmentally observant. Four days later, I am lively, chirpy and still observant but not judgmentally! Oh and 104% tired! What happened in these four days, you ask? PIXELS ~ the photography club at the company I work in. They organised a three day trip to Kodaikanal, Madurai andContinue reading “The Pixel Way.”
