Sashaying With Sushi


Everyday, 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 […]

New Beginnings


Everyday, Musings, Travel

Today marks a confluence of New Years.  I love celebrating New Year’s. There was a time in my life when I made it a point to celebrate the New Year in a different country every year. I have seen the New Year ushered in Wadi Rum, Jordan, with a singing bedouin who proposed marriage to […]

The Relativity Of Time


Musings

“Time is relative.” – A wise philosopher in Chennai told me this a couple of years ago. The quote then was a nonsense, mocking response to a serious question.

Musings

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 […]

An Ode To My Valentines


Musings

February is the month of love, isn’t it? That Hallmark-magnetized celebration on February 14th?It’s only fitting that I tell you I celebrate this month with not one Valentine but five.  I am not polyamorous, but these Valentines are my forever corners – I go to bed knowing they have my back.  Meet my Valentines: Voozy […]

Cafe Stories: How Our Life Is A Story


Musings

Last weekend, I was sitting by a beach in coastal Karnataka. I had a week of beach-time ahead of me. Or so I thought. The sun settled into a weak haze, overpowered by a full moon that rose angrily to the sky. The next morning, as I was well into my Sunday long run, my […]
