In Grace We Are


Mental Health, Musings

It’s early Sunday morning. One of our clients wants to “talk.” I am nervous. We had had a bit of an uncomfortable discussion around payment on Friday. I call them.  She picks up. “I want to say that we are truly sorry. We allowed our biases to creep in. We talk so much about biases, […]

Just A Stripe


Mental Health, Musings

A few weeks ago, I was telling my therapist about my woeful finances. With most of our money going to build MyndStories, and the sudden, drastic cut in marketing spend from corporates, we were staring at a mountain we had no idea how to climb. My therapist turned Life Coach and asked to diversify my […]

The One With Books


Mental Health, podcast

A few years ago, I had a book soulmate. I connected with this person in a way I never had with anyone else over books. Words. We wrote long emails over books. Read together. Mused over words. Fell in love with melancholy. The person wasn’t to stay in my life, however. She didn’t just carry […]

Feel Your Feelings


Everyday, Mental Health, Musings

“How are you feeling today?” This is probably the most difficult question you can ask me.

Sashaying With Sushi


Everyday, Featured, Mental Health, Musings

Many years ago, in 2016, I went on a solo trip to Japan.  The country was everything I had imagined it to be – a bustle of contradictions and sweeping contrasts.  It was also, expectedly, expensive. And being a vegetarian in Japan was even more expensive. There were two ways I could get vegetarian food […]

Tripping On The Past


Mental Health, Musings, Travel

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? These last few days have been a cloud, a dank, damp, and heavy cloud. On such days, my workouts help. A fast run or a furious boxing workout. Reading can be a hit-and-miss – when your mind is saturated, it’s more challenging to focus on words and […]

The Synchronicity Of Words


Mental Health, Musings, podcast

Do you believe in synchronicity? In the mysterious arrangement the Universe sometimes makes on our behalf? I do. Or rather, I don’t believe as much as watch the magic unfold, if I allow the Universe to guide me. Last week, I hosted the lovely Srividya Sivakumar for the MyndStories Minis Podcast. Now, I really don’t […]
