A second time visit to the magnificent temple district, this time was way more personal and enriching compared to my previous visit which was from college. (I will only be talking about my experience and not the history of the place). Belur lies about 220 km west of Bangalore, a 4-5 hour journey by bus. […]Read More Belur-Halebid 2018
Happiness is a state of mind. Your state of mind. Who do you think is responsible to keep it peaceful/sane? I think happiness is a personal choice. I didn’t approach it that way before but now, I do strongly feel it’s a choice. Your choice. It’s easy to sit back and think you are a […]Read More Is Happiness a choice?
Having mostly taken off on leisure vacations before, Dandeli showed me how extremely different an adventurous trip was from them. Two girls, one two wheeler and a forest to sum it up in a sentence. We took a sleeper bus from Bangalore to the Dandeli bus stand. With a package pre-booked with Rangers Camp homestay, […]Read More Dandeli 2018
As architects, we consider every site visit an opportunity to explore the surroundings. Lucky for us, our site happened to be in Hospete the node for travellers heading to Hampi, a heritage site recognized by UNESCO. We took a train to Hospete where our site was (they’ve introduced flights as well since last week.) Once […]Read More Hampi 2018

A trip to attend a friend’s engagement, the first of this kind. It had been a while since we girls had travelled, last one being Pune about a year ago. So the excitement was obvious for this reason and it was also my first time visit to this beautiful place. Having had several Coorgi friends […]Read More Coorg 2018
I didn’t talk to you all day that day. Excited. I was meeting him after a very long time. Shuffling through my rack, I found a pack of colored foam that you’d gifted me to make something for you with. I Picked up a box and neatly lined it with yellow foam from that […]Read More I Shouldn’t Have
So, it’s been a while. Hi guys! This is going to be the most random post. A lot of thoughts has been in and out of my head lately. I’m gonna try and put them down. First about my confusion on a superior power and then about our darkest days. Some of the first things […]Read More Random thoughts: God and Death.
They say the way you start your year is probably how you’ll spend the rest of it, right? I think I read this somewhere. Having counted down to 2017 in a freakin’ bus and not spending the rest of the year in one or travelling, clearly, that’s bull. Anyway, rewind 365. I walked into 2017 […]Read More Rewind 365
I always thought I’d be the last one to “settle down” (like chaas in a Gujarati thaali) amongst my friends. While almost all of my girlfriends had, had a sit down discussion about this with their folks. Mine always joked about how they would never “give me away.” Dad, mostly. Mom started entertaining proposals the […]Read More When my parents asked me if they can start “looking.”
