Midlife Musings – “Just Set Your Priorities”, he said.

I was sitting at the lunch table with a bunch of my colleagues today and we were generally discussing about the lack of work life balance these days in corporate jobs.

All About April 2022 – Trip to London, Bday Celebrations, Parties and Hardly any Reading!

This post decided it didn’t want to be boxed into a category or labelled. It called itself fluid.

Dead Weight – The obsession with female bodies and their weight

A distant family member had died, and we have this ritual on the thirteenth day where friends and family are invited for a meal, after a puja is done, to say goodbye to the spirit of the one who has passed.

The ‘No-Goals’ 2022

Half of January from 2022 is over already and I am just writing this post. I had decided that I didn’t want to have any goals or plans for 2022, before the year started. But the Universe seems to have approved of my no-goals plan for 2022, considering my whole family has been indoors andContinue reading “The ‘No-Goals’ 2022”
