The Times They Are a-Changin’ : My Delhi

I’m a Delhi’ite. I was born here and have lived/visited Delhi every year of my life. I relate to every word of the Delhi 6 song “Yeh dilli hai mere yaar, Bas ishq mohabbat pyaar” . At different times in my life Delhi meant different things to me. For most of my schooling years, it […]

Destination Coorg

252 kms from Bangalore and 1525 m above sea level lies Coorg which means ‘dense forest on steep hill’. Coorg is often called the Scotland of India.

Being one of the closest getaways from Bangalore (apart from Mysore), it is a nice place to spend a weekend.

The misty hills, lush forest, acres and acres of pepper and coffee plantation, orange groves, undulating streets and breathtaking views are what make Coorg an unforgettable holiday destination.

Fact File : Chail – Himachal Pradesh

It might not be one of the Top 10 Hill Stations in India as per mustseeindia, but Chail has all the makings of a perfect holiday in the hills. And the icing on the cake is that it’s not as crowded as some of the top 10! Chail is about 350km from Delhi and it takes […]

Ordering In @ Marathahalli Bangalore

With busy schedules and 9-5 jobs that never get over at 5, home-delivery or ordering in most homes like ours is a common phenomenon. If you are lucky and live in Koramangala or Indranagar, the food hubs of Bangalore, you’ll have plenty to choose from. But for the unlucky ones like us who live in […]

Soo Ra Sung – Korean – Bangalore

Chinese, Thai and even Japanese, we all know and have been to restaurants that specialize in these. But how many of us have tried an authentic Korean meal? Well, I’ll forever be thankful to a friend of mine who introduced me two awesome things that are Korean. The first is the movie My Sassy Girl… […]

The Ants Cafe, Indira Nagar, Bangalore

When I first came to Bangalore I was astounded by the number of Café Coffee Day (CCD) in this city. Since their launch in 1996, they have successfully covered every pin code of Bangalore. CCD for many college kids is their second home, but I for one want more out of a coffee shop then […]

Take for instance, the Patiala-salwar, the Patiala-jutti and I’m sure you’ll definitely agree with the Patiala-peg ! On my recent visit to the city I […]

My top 5 @ Road Trip – Bangalore

The food is always good, in fact on our last trip someone said “I’d like to know what they don’t make well” that […]
