Biking Along The Konkan Coast

Biking Along The Konkan Coast

I am a fan of luxury and comfort and bikes don’t offer much of either. So when I started my bike trip from Bombay to Harihareshwar, I thought I will come back and write a post titled ‘The diary of a reluctant biker girl’. I might still pen that on a later date but for now […]






Sanjay Acharya: A Tribute

Sanjay Acharya: A Tribute

I write this today with a deep sense of sadness, anger and helplessness. Animals in India have lost a warrior.  In 2011. I was living in Delhi, training to be fund raiser for an animal shelter. Part of my job entailed having a good idea of existing infrastructure, so I requested that I be allowed […]






Born To Be Broken-Hearted

Born To Be Broken-Hearted

I’ve always been interested in stories. I guess it began with the bedtime stories crafted by Papa when we were kids. Carefully personalized for children. So there was He-Man, running alongside the warrior goddess, Teela Radhika . Stories of Himalayan heroics by grandfathers. Growing up in Bengal meant the inevitable fascination for the Durga Ma, the Mother Goddess, […]






Where Nothing Is Lost

Where Nothing Is Lost

I wish the world would understand what we look like when the stars see us. A blimp in the blackness of the universe. A sole blazing sun supporting this delicately balanced eco-system. Perhaps we would then stop rampaging through this world and her resources without a care. We as a race completely fail to see […]






When Less Is More

When Less Is More

Housing is one of the key issues facing our overstretched planet today. According to UN reports, over 30 per cent of the planet’s urban population lives in slums, in great deprivation without fundamental amenities like water, sanitation, adequate space. 35 per cent of the rural population does even worse and more than 2 billion people all over the world […]






Soul Garden

Soul Garden

  I live in a small town, with cement roads and dust smitten air.  We relish the small town luxury of maintaining a garden, in the front as well as in the backyard of our bungalow. We never got a landscape designer or a planner for the garden. Instead, through the years, we just collected […]






Botanical Walls

Botanical Walls

There may come a time when there won’t be enough land for vegetation to grow upon. When we will have more buildings than trees and open tracts of green will be a fading memory. Look around you. It is already happening. The land feuds. The scramble to build more and more concrete jungles where an overture to a […]






Green Luxury

Green Luxury

In the Kamal Haasan starrer Pushpaka Vimana (1987), the story unfolded in the suites, balconies and gardens of a five star hotel. The idea was to pit a few ordinary mundane lives against excessive luxury. The idea of luxury then was limited to carpetted rooms, fluffy beds, marble floors and blinding chandeliers. Over the years however the idea of […]






Prayers For Odisha

Prayers For Odisha

Fourteen years ago in November, I was in Odisha when the cyclone hit the coast. Co-incidentally it was Durga Pooja even then. It was a surreal experience. Winds lashing at 118 miles an hour coupled with heavy rains. Water had filled into the flat that I was living in. Within hours we were disconnected from […]






A Splash Of Joy

A Splash Of Joy

It was a hectic morning as always. Driving for a full 10  minutes in rush hour Mumbai traffic and successfully crossing the grid-locked Khodadad circle, I was ascending the Tilak bridge at a crawl. Looking out of my window, I saw this beautiful and tall bougainvillea vine that had crawled on the top of a […]






The Kanheri Trail

The Kanheri Trail

  It started with the first visit to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park or Borivali National Park  and we were amazed that we lived so close to such a large expanse of nature, and hadn’t explored it for so many years! And so  we headed back next week  to the Upper Kanheri Trail. The guide was […]






A Walk In The Borivali National Park

A Walk In The Borivali National Park

The Sanjay Gandhi National Park or Borivali National Park, as it is popularly known, lies in the Northern suburb of Borivali, Mumbai. It is acres of forest surrounded by the traffic, noise and the chaos of one of the most populated cities in India. It is remarkable that such a large National Park exists INSIDE a […]
