What makes Rishikesh so mesmerising?

“Live with no excuses and travel with no regrets”  And that’s exactly how we must plan our travels – exploring every nook and cranny that catches our fantasy, tasting local cuisines that whet the appetite long after you’ve returned home, and much more.

Why is Haridwar Spiritually Charged-up?

I hope you enjoyed my Delhi travelogue. Delhi is such a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, people, and stories. Leaving Delhi to move on to the next part of my journey wasn’t easy. It felt as though I was leaving behind a friend I’d met after ages and had hardly had time to be with…

Why Delhi stole my heart…

“We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.” That is so true, isn’t it? Not packing up to travel to someplace unseen is the biggest regret of my life. Every breath, sort of, reminds me of all the places I’m still to see, and the experiences I’m yet to make.…

Dear papa, Your father. Your brothers. Your uncles. Same faces. Similar voices. Their presence. Your absence. Tearing chaos. Overbearing silence. I don’t want to meet them. I want them all gone. Even for an hour, I can’t stand them. You stare back from those faces. You speak in their voices. You are there, yet not…

2019 steps out the door and I am thinking of events that happened this year. I’ve known people to calibrate their year based on the good and bad times. I feel that is rather depressing because psychologically, in the end you are left pondering about everything that turned out different from your expectations. I don’t…

The Blind Date – A Short Story

“That’s enough! I quit,” and I stormed out of my manager’s office. I was done taking blames for things I’d never done, or rather for what others had done. “Don’t take shit, ever,” dad had always said. Once again, more than anything, it was father’s perpetual absence that nipped me at every point in life.…
