The world is overwhelming. It’s infinitely bigger than you, there are people doing so much better and so much worse than you at the same time. You can spend hours watching biographies of people who are way more successful and swim in the sea of guilt of wasting your life. Similarly, you could be watching documentaries of children working in mines and get swallowed in pity and helplessness. … More Cut your ear to be a successful artist!
One of my major weaknesses that slow my productivity train is daydreaming. I love making imaginary scenarios in my head and giving interviews to major magazines exaggerating the hardships I faced. I have loved doing this since I was a child. I would come back from school and replay the embarrassing situations in my head … More Is sleeping and meditation the same thing?
I take a couple of art history classes as a part time job. Not so much to earn but to force myself to revise the things I studied in college, developing a deeper understanding each time. For when I sit down to read about an art movement or an artist, it opens my world to … More Finding ourselves in someone else’s story
One of the biggest blessings in my life has been the house that I stay in. It’s not much but somehow, we have managed to make arrangements for a lot of natural light to come in. Another huge bonus is the multiple open areas that we have decorated thoroughly with plants. The plants attract bees … More There is Ant in My Water

A significant part of my childhood revolved around stories. I had a cassette with a couple of fairy tales on them and I remember rewinding it and listening to it over and over again. Yes, you had to rewind the tape in the cassette. I wonder if Alexa would have been able to operate the … More Elsa v/s Cinderella
I usually draft a blog idea first and then click corresponding photos but this time the blog itself is inspired by this photo that I found scrolling my phone gallery this morning. This was taken by my brother candidly and the reason for us being all fancy and traditional is because it’s Diwali. This is … More The Horror of Picking Up a Call
Everyday at 12.15 P.M. a tribe of goats passes by my house. (Yup! A group of goats is called a tribe! Look, this blog is so educational!) Most of the goats wear little bells around their necks and as soon as I hear the tinkling bells approaching me, I drop my work and rush to … More The Goat Named Biryani
I remember being really young when the first McDonald’s opened in my city. It was always heavily crowded, with crying cranky kids who would only stop after a happy meal toy was handed over to them. For the longest time my routine was to unwrap the burger completely, lift open the bun, carefully slide the … More The Ketchup Obsession
The society I belong to brought me up with the idea of gender equality and female empowerment, so much so that it came naturally for me to strive for better grades than to learn how to cook.
