Memories and Possessions

I don’t shop during holidays and very little when not on one (ok that isn’t entirely true…). You can say i have consciously stopped buying unnecessary stuff so i can travel more than i already do. While i avoid picking up random ‘things’ from my trips,  I usually like to bring a part of what…

My top three experiences: Nepal

Nepal happened at a time where i promised myself that I would seek experiences and not amass things. I was highly inspired by a logical argument that my friend Ansoo Gupta made on her social media that if we saved all the money we used to buy clothing or accessories, we don’t need we could…

Highway Gomantak: Fresh fish trail

Fresh fish can be bought from the market and made at home. And this happens every week at my place. But what if you are extra lazy on an extra long weekend? And what if your cooks are also in that ‘i don’t want to cook no-more’ mode? So the lazy blogger made her way…

With her she not only brought to office her famed Bengali accent, the unique manner in which she dressed but also her Bengali cuisine. This was when i felt, its always…

F(e)asting during Ramzan: A Bohri meal experience 

Did you know you eat lesser when you sit on the floor cross-legged to eat versus sitting at a dining table? Did you know that roasted garlic and chillies help you digest mutton and other heavy meals? Did you know that no morsel of food goes waste at a Bohri wedding and that the thaal…
