Dating at 30

It’s the valentine week. I remember I wrote an article for the Hyderabad Times in 2011. It was called ‘ A Single Day of Love’. I was single then, and I spoke to my seniors about this idea a week before Valentine’s Day. The article was about how people were embracing their single-hood and were [...]

How I started my blog

It's been quite a journey. Thanks to everyone who stuck around, and everyone who joined me mid-way through these two years. It all started off in a bizarre way for me; not just blogging but this whole inclination towards fashion etc. Back in 2012, one of my seniors at university was working on her thesis [...]

Age old Yashicas too. The same goes for [...]

Sitting at home and devouring mangoes, this is my ideal summer day!

There’s much to envy about Hyderabad, including our [...]

Did you ever imagine the array of questions that you'd be asked ever since you made that decision to get married - what do you want your wedding to look like, what are you wearing, have you decided on the venue, are you having a destination wedding? Well, who would have [...]
