A Piece From The Past

The most imposing piece of furniture in my room was a red drum kit. For no reason in particular, it was handed down by a senior from school, who I later dated for a short while. The set was a strong deep red, like that on the Arsenal crest. The package looked rather extrinsic in […]

Walks, Thoughts and Wishes

Narrow winding streets, houses that anyone would love to live in, full-bloom Gulmohar flowers shaken and strewn all over the place, the lack of human beings, the smell and serenity of a familiar neighbourhood just after a downpour, and above all, the uncertainty of whether it’s going to rain again or not, are just a […]

Pink Mornings

On some mornings like these, I just wake up with a damn good feeling. These are mornings when I usually get up before I expect myself to. Early. An extremely rare phenomenon in my lazy life. And when these miracles do happen, I feel much like bright colours. Deep down, I do want to wear […]

White Memories

Last month I went home to visit my parents for a few days, and as always, much to my dismay, my mum had gotten rid of my bathroom slippers. I just cannot, not even for a minute, do without them. She knows about my humongous attachment and love for them, but we’ve gone over this […]

Rebelling The Truth

Two houses, three jobs, five vacations and about thirty hair colours later, I decided to resume writing on this space, which by the way, somewhere in between I despised even the look of it. I was sick of answering questions which had anything to do with my blog. In all the time that has passed, […]

Dunkin’ Donuts

So finally, the much awaited Dunkin’ Donuts finally opened in the city. Not like Bangalore lacks decent places to binge on donuts, but this one just had to be there. Located at the junction of Brigade Road and Residency Road, it’s hard to miss this beautifully lit up place which smells oh-so-good. If you’ve eaten […]

Peter Pans and Polkas

The peter pan collar has become a vintage hit this season, yet again. It became fashionable in the 20th century with Maude Adam’s costume in her portrayal as Peter Pan. The Scotts have deeply influenced multiple aspects of fashion, which keep getting inculcated even today, unfortunately minus the fairies and pirates from Peter Pan’s fantasies. […]

Smitten by Spring

Spring is finally here and I’m greeting the season with pop colours! I thought I’d said goodbye to dull and gloomy winter,┬ábut looks like it’s here to stick around for a while (at least I’m really cold, especially in the mornings). So in the interim period, where the two seasons fight it out like girls, […]

Paper Boat Drinks

A big yellow bag of goodies arrived for me. In it, were seven different flavours of drinks that could take any Indian kid from the 90s down memory lane. I don’t remember the last time I had these drinks. They brought back some great memories. Four of these drinks are already available in the market. […]

Bringing Brown Back

Brown has always been this understated colour. “My favourite colour is brown,” said nobody ever. I think it’s almost as good as black or grey, and sometimes better. It has this subtle elegance and panache to it, that no other colour on any palette can boast of. It’s a colour not many people are comfortable […]
