Adventure Inc

The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud and…

When Water is Thicker Than Blood

I’ve written about these often on my blog. My true love and king of chaat will always be the humble pani puri. So pure is my love for this chaat that it is immortalized outside my fridge as a magnet. Just looking at the door reminds me of grabbing a plate. Alas, Bombay is too…

Tangy Memories

  Chana jor garam is a ‘fast-food’ made from cooked chick-peas that are flattened, fried, and seasoned with rich and tangy spices. It is served with chopped onions, tomatoes, fresh coriander, chaat masala and topped with lemon juice. It was on my must-have list when ever we took a trip to the beach. Being a…

A Place Called Home

Home is one of those places where you can be your uninhibited self, where maps don’t make sense and you are never truly lost. No matter how many changes happen, it will always be your haven. That said, it is very easy to take this comfort zone for granted. When I had the liberty to…

Chess Mate

I enjoy some fun mind games, be it a game of chess. I may not be the best player around, (so if you want an easy win, you know whom to call), I am still fascinated by the games and its pieces. On a stroll at Bandra’s Carter Road, you can see tables close to…

Up In The Air!

I’ve always loved helium balloons in large bunches. Long before I managed to catch the movie Up I’d often wish how many balloons I’d need to take a free world cruise.

Monsoon Magic!

OK, as you’d have already noticed, I haven’t been writing a lot here lately. But that doesn’t mean I’ve been lying low. The shutter bug in me has been very much active, and here is a small collection of the monsoons that I clicked over the last two years. It includes foods, monuments, and everyday…

Wheeling It Out

The fun fair is still around, close to my house. I love big giant wheels, in fact i even managed to get some great shots, (like my last sunset post) when it took to the highest point. Felt like a little kid again!

On A High Horse

What good is talking about the Kala Ghoda Festival without any horsing around? Well, this isn’t the symbolic painting after which the street is named, nor is it the Black Horse that stands for the iconic festival. This one seemed more like a the one straight out of a chess set, with a lot of…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

In Mumbai Local trains, you can pull the chain to raise an alarm at the train stops at the next closest railway station. As simple as this seems, it most often than never doesn’t work. Initially people would pull it just out of┬ácuriosity to check if the system works, so how such meaningless acts are…
