Holidays

When I first started this blog, about three years ago, I never did have to think so much. I mean, I pretty much penned (rather typed) my thoughts on here, as and when they poured forth. As days became more rushed, the posts became forced. Now, we have reached a point where I sit in... Continue Reading →

First world problems.

Forgive me if any of you folks are having a difficult time in life. Apologies if you have bigger problems. Please do no take offence to the fact that my current problem is finding a gym in Doha that opens before 6 AM. And please do not mention those hotel gyms that would cost me... Continue Reading →

Hello

Hella folks. Just popping in to say a quick hello. Thank you for the lovely congratulatory emails and wishes.

Full circle.

The genesis of this blog is rooted in the singular loneliness of a new mother. The written word has always been my solace. Whenever I feel alone and detached from the hectic world around, I gravitate toward the written word. This was meant to be a sort of online journal, instigated by massive changes brought...
