To all women labelled weak and strong, fat and skinny, non-ambitious and successful, outspoken and shy, ugly and beautiful, lovable and to-be-comprised with, loved and cheated upon, happy and depressed, healthy and sick, fashionable and nay, a very very happy women's day!

Or let's put it this way, I am a twenty-six-year-old woman who does not know the purpose of her life, she sometimes thinks she is definitely not born for a monotonous job and must do something creative of her own.

It seemed like I had woken up from a dream as I booked my cab from ISBT to home this Tuesday morning. The previous four days were spent in Jibhi, a small village in Tirthan Valley, away from all the fret and the ordinary delights of the modern life. I had the sky and the... Continue Reading →
A never ending to-do list, hundreds of unread emails, things going a tad bit wrong, news of terror attacks, a possible war between India and Pakistan.
