Cooking up a storm!

  I am 26. I am single. I am a female. In India, that’s enough to set people rattling off about marriage and family planning. In my case, more advice follows about learning to do tasks that suit a woman in the house than one in office. To name a few – cooking, stitching, birthing,Continue reading “Cooking up a storm!”

#Swarun Again!

To the long evening talks, to the short Ajmera walks, to the values you taught, and throwing away foods that rot.   To being a bride, those bumpy auto rides, to the faces you made, and the cakes we smeared. To the streams of rant, to the walls dabbed with paint, to the jokes weContinue reading “#Swarun Again!”

Karma.

Karma, they say, bites back. Sometimes in the cold. When you’re sweater-less! Taking you back to a couple of months ago. A friend returned from Kashmir, the ‘Paradise on Earth’, having toured among the snow capped mountains and under the blazing sun, in the cold, dry and biting winds and by the sparkling lakes. HeContinue reading “Karma.”

Wedding Vows.

As I closed my eyes and settled in the flight seat after three long days and interspersed with possibly eight hours of sleep, I only wanted peace and a blanket. Not even food could keep me away from taking my precious forty winks. But as fate would have it, I spent half of my flightContinue reading “Wedding Vows.”

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!”

A dream turning real.

On special request by Izza from the ‘A touch of my saint’, the previous post has been now re-written with a completely different end.   Glistening smile in her eyes, She felt her beau cupping her face, Caressing her hair and her cheek, His finger lingering at her lips. With the soft touch of his lips on hers, CheersContinue reading “A dream turning real.”

The day I saw you!

  I trudged along the road, Seeming as it may, To my tired eyes, The same each day.     The dust swirls, The Sun rays blind, The leaves strewn all over, Blank thoughts crossing my mind.     You came in like, A whiff of fresh air, You seemed to be the answer, To myContinue reading “The day I saw you!”

Big Fat Indian Wedding (With visuals!)

On special request of a fellow blogger Cat Jenkins (do check out her blog!) I am putting in a few pictures of the Big Fat Indian Wedding of last week. I hope you enjoy these as much as we look like we did!

Big Fat Indian Wedding!

Anyone who’s seen an Indian wedding knows that it’s mostly about glitz, glitter and a lot of gala (and gold too!) Well, it’s also about rituals, heavy clothes (so heavy that you can get tired of holding them up and trying to fold them), tensions and family drama along with a lot of fun and lavishly sumptuous buffets!Continue reading “Big Fat Indian Wedding!”
