The Bluest City

The Bluest City

I am sitting by Lake Shore Drive on my last day in Chicago. A woman is sitting by the shore, sketching the long skyline of Chicago. A gay couple kiss each other. A group of girls celebrate their friend’s birthday party. And a naughty Baltimore Oriole chases me. I sit there for hours with my […]






The Kindness Of Strangers

The Kindness Of Strangers

I hadn’t expected the bus to arrive in the city so early in the morning. I had hoped for signs of a city waking up— a tea shop to sit at, a street to people-watch on, while I waited. But it was ten minutes past five, dark. A thin film of fog wrapped up the early winter chill. […]






Jordan: What You Seek Is Seeking You

Jordan: What You Seek Is Seeking You

What you seek, is seeking you. – Rumi Ever since I started traveling, I have been waiting for this big trip that will change my life and I will come back this whole new person. While every new journey has been a completely unique and exciting adventure, I always find myself coming back and easily […]






Srinagar: Tips For Independent Travellers

Srinagar: Tips For Independent Travellers

The ethereal kashmir has been a bone of contention between two very unhappy neighbours. But its lush green meadows, snow filled valleys, warm kangris, hospitable people and delicious cuisine keep drawing travellers despite the tension. I did this trip independently with a friend without a tour package, guide or private taxi. Here are some useful […]






Thank You Kashmir!

Thank You Kashmir!

“Agar Firdaus bar rōy-e zamin ast, hamin ast-o hamin ast-o hamin ast.” If there is paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here.That’s what Persian poet Amir Khusrau, said of Kashmir in 13th Century.Fast-forward to now and this is what I heard from friends and acquaintances: “There’s a constant sense of […]






A Bright Ray of Sunshine

A Bright Ray of Sunshine

  I have been weathering a storm since last year. So, I have been blogging about how unfair, ruthless, and hard life is. Although the storm hasn’t abated yet, I am seeing a bright, bright ray of sunshine now. I am insanely happy today. A few months ago, when it dawned on me that my relationship had really gone down the drain, I had […]






Where The Wild Things Really Are

Where The Wild Things Really Are

“Katrina and her cousin went on a short trek nearby, and by the end there were 60 or 70 leeches on her. Poor thing, she is a city girl, didn’t know what to do! When she came back we removed all the leeches, then I had to sweep the blood off the floor with a […]






Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

I am a tad upset. I have just read about a hotel chain which is soon launching women-only hotels. I know I should be kicked about it, as I often travel solo, but I am not. Traditionally, our streets, roadside restaurants, public parks, pan- cigarette tapris have been a male bastion. While women remained housebound,  men traversed […]






The Dilemma Of Travelling Responsibly

The Dilemma Of Travelling Responsibly

I have always been a staunch supporter of travelling responsibly. I am not an expert in this field but in my own personal capacity, I do my bit. I try to keep the environment clean, carry my own water bottle, use public transport, support local community and propagate the idea through my blog and social media. But, there are times […]






Eat Your Heart Out In North-Goa

Eat Your Heart Out In North-Goa

I was in Goa last weekend and I’m infused with susegado tinted peace. Yes, that much abused word when it comes to all things Goan. A number of people have messaged me asking for a list of recommendations for great eating joints. And being a vegetarian, I believe that if a place in Goa has […]






Sri Lanka: A Magical Love Affair

Sri Lanka: A Magical Love Affair

A friend in Dubai and I have started a ritual. We meet at least once a year in an exotic new location and so this year, after much planning, we decided to visit Sri Lanka. And I am so glad we did. Two girls. 1,300 kms. And just seven days to discover the diverse beauty […]






In The Solitary Heart Of A Himalayan Village

In The Solitary Heart Of A Himalayan Village

The idyllic village of Tosh, located at the edge of  the Parvati valley near Kasol, Himachal Pradesh, has only a few thousand inhabitants. The village is no different from hundreds of others scattered right across the great Himalayan belt passing through a major part of North and North-East India. One of the many obscure villages […]

* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
