Meraki Pahadi House – Run for Nature!

Travelling is always a good idea. I have been travelling to different places across India and internationally since 2014. Locally, Himachal Pradesh is my personal favourite destination. While Uttarakhand is my native place, I see myself more inclined to Himachal. There’s always a new respite of thought with it. However, just to get a little…

Rückkehrunruhe

The feeling of returning home after an immersive trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness—to the extent you have to keep reminding yourself that it happened at all, even though it felt so vivid just days ago—which makes you wish you could smoothly cross-dissolve back into everyday life, or just hold the…

Paris Vs New York

A beautiful gift book of a popular travel journal as told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York. When Vahram Muratyan began his online travel journal, Paris versus New York, he had no idea how quickly it would become one of the most buzzed-about sites on the Internet—it garnered more than a million…

The Experimental Journey

Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their…

The Ticket

It was when I was pregnant, working for the love of working, so much that I worked till the last trimester. I would commute by bus since the middle of my second trimester, as driving was a strain, rather I enjoyed sitting in peace listening to the Garbh Sanskar Mantra on Red FM sometimes. Purple…

From A Modest Mask To A Fashion Fad!

The pandemic has got millions of people worldwide locked down bringing with it a lot of warranted fear and panic. Also to accept that we don’t seem to be getting out of the clasp of this deadly virus any time soon makes us feel helpless and worried about our health, planning for times ahead. While…

To Travel is to Live

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. @anthonybourdain…

Trying Pins

There’s a seldom mentioned, exceptionally entertaining function on Pinterest which was rolled out in November 2016. I was pleasantly surprised having discovered this virtual gem at a particularly painful time in my life. This worthwhile distraction, together with another Pinterest favourite, namely ‘Art History Memes’, was a lifesaver in many ways. If you’re familiar with…

Aurangabad: Forever Agile

It was my love for artistic silk fabric (Paithani) which inspired me to visit a district called Aurangabad in Maharashtra, India. Here I perceived a blend of saga and innovation. I am yet to choose whether to call it a tourist destination or an industrial amalgamation. Paithan, located around 50 km from Aurangabad airport (Chhatrapati…

Unravel!

Trace the city on the back of your hand, the sky, the land and the sand. Whisper your secrets to the wind, watch them travel through the skyline and disappear. We’ve been trying to find our way out of here. Leave your flesh bereft on the sidewalk. We’ve traveled the city in the dead of…
