I’m feeling the call to write, and I’m not even clear on what the topic is or should be. All I know is that I have an urge to express, faster than my fingers can write on paper. That’s why I’m here today. Lately, I’ve been..feeling a lot of feelings. And I now realise, there’s … Continue reading Coping, Bracing, Figuring
Flashback to memories made in Monterey, California, USA (April / July 2016) This has to be one of my favourite magnets from the collection. Smooth, but pleasantly textured. Imperfect art that paints a compelling picture. The sky is a whimsical dusty-pink despite the sun being high up; it’s my kind of remembrance for this place … Continue reading #SouvenirStorytime 3/28: Breeze Away to Carmel-by-the-Sea
An ode to the City of Dreams – New York City, USA (Dates unknown / Multiple) I cannot remember exactly when I bought this. I have made several visits to this bustling mad city. I’ve never not been taken by it. In fact, the first time I visited at nineteen – I was the wide-eyed … Continue reading #SouvenirStorytime 2/28: New York City Love
Recap: what is Souvenir Storytime? I am kicking this off in lieu of nourishing time in the mountains up north. (Another lockdown is imminent in Mumbai, so the visit to the mountains will have to wait). The magic of creation through words is always deeply nourishing.

(Ha – if only) Background: I am an independent single woman, I have taken thirty turns around our sun. This year has been all the more challenging … Continue reading I Dreamt a Little Dream
Folks, looks like this is going to be the one and only episode from Season 1 of this narrative. But I wanted to close it out with the long-promised second part to this very long-running season/episode. I’m coming up on a year of detaching myself from society. After much reflection – the short answer to … Continue reading S1E01: “What Have You Been Doing Now That You Can’t Do Anything?” – 2/2
A non-apology for not following through on my promise to write, and a personal reflection on understanding why… read, it will only take 3 minutes to feed your curiosity!
That is a direct quote from one of the several curious well-wishers who reached out in the weeks after I left my job. In the midst of a global pandemic, and more specifically – in the midst of international lockdown. Sidenote: My first official day of freedom was a week before official lockdown in the … Continue reading S1E01: “What Have You Been Doing Now That You Can’t Do Anything?” – 1/2
Off to a profound start. This was one of many questions that were swimming in my mind in the years leading up to this supposedly-life changing break. What break?, you ask. Fair, I jumped in with no preamble. After much deliberation, I decided to get off the treadmill that was my life as I knew … Continue reading Pilot: Why Are We Here?
