Things I did for myself on World Health Day
Why you should experience stillness while you travel

15 days. 8000 kms. 12 cities. Travelling and living in a train!
Around this time last year, I was chilling in Goa. Every time the hobo thinks about the trip, she gets nostalgic! Goa, like I always say is a state of mind. There are times when I am working from my laptop but my mind is in Goa. The slow and laid back life is what […]

The irony of quitting my job for a travel fellowship, but not allowed to travel!
This time when I was suprised to spot some Flamingos in Mumbai I am not a morning person. I love to see a sunrise, but would seldom get up in the morning for the same! The few times I have seen the rising sun is when I have been up all night. Never by choice, […]
I quit my job for a fellowship that would have allowed me to travel. Ironically, now I cannot travel. Well not by choice, but by accident. Pun intended. You will know the pun shortly. Life is funny. Meh. Humor is the only way to deal with it. Bah. The random ramblings. I never plan things […]
