I am not known for in depth travel plans. Husband is. And I often lie through my teeth to make him believe I have ‘researched’ enough for a trip to give it a go. But husbands come easy and best friends? Well lets see how this post goes 🙂 Malsej Ghat was a...

Taking up a morning schedule is me!

Procrastination? It has started to sound more like assassination to me. Given the number of dreams, ideas and intentions it takes down with it. Killing a thought now has a new terminology for human race. Yes no aces for that guess. If google is your best friend (I...

Why did I fire my maid?

Devrai Art Village and Panchgani

Sometime in the middle of the day I stumbled upon this wonderful read Notes on Travel, Loss and Forgetting and it got me thinking. A lot. And in the convoluted maze of thoughts my mind went to my most recent weekend sojourn- Panchgani. Mahabaleshwar is often one of...

People are ideas
