The fourth month of 2018 – I guess time really knows how to fly!

To me, this year had a less-than-ideal beginning. I was, and still am dealing with quite a few mental and emotional speedbumps. It took me months of mental agony, self-loathing, and self-doubt to accept that I am going through something that cannot be ignored anymore and something that cannot be addressed in just a day or two. Thus began the first steps towards healing. Continue reading “Etch A Sketch”

A Winter Restaurant Trail – Stamford

A Winter Restaurant Trail – Stamford

A two-week business-trip to Stamford, Connecticut in January – sounds delightful, doesn’t it? I mean, an almost wholly-sponsored travel opportunity to another country? Yes, please!

Just the thought of the number gave me a headache. So a friend and I begrudgingly changed the destination to Kochi (most of the begrudging was on my part, since I did not plan in time to witness the 2016 Kochi-Muziris Biennale).

Glimpses of an Era – Mahabalipuram

Glimpses of an Era – Mahabalipuram

A while ago, my friends and I were invited to attend a two-day wedding in Chennai. While the wedding was festive and quite enjoyable, we sneaked out early on day two to return home, for various reasons. I hitched a ride back with two of my friends since they were driving, and we decided to stop by the historic port town of Mahabalipuram. Continue reading “Glimpses of an Era – Mahabalipuram”
