We all need change- in our lives and at our Homes. I always wanted my Home to be my reflection. Inspired by the art of Decoupaging, I was excited to discover the power of this art form. I started with Kitchen- a place where I spend good time of my Life. The result was beautiful and now I am confident to spice up all the dull things. It saved me Money and helped me up-cycling the things.   Also see:…

Who is your Backlight?

June 9, 2016

Who is my inspiration? Often we get the question “Who inspires you”. Today is not one of the good days. I can feel the weakness- My arms are getting numb and my feet paining. I hate this feeling when health is in the blues . I know everyone does. But then I hate it more because it is reflecting on my face and sap my energy making it difficult for me to run after my Toddler. From last 4 months,…

We shall overcome: New Year resolutions

January 6, 2016

Its 2016 and this year I am doing the other way round- Gifting myself with a not-to-do list rather than to-do wish list. While I am starting this post, I wonder that I do not have to ponder over it unlike the to-dos. This might be because we know our weaknesses very well. My new year resolutions: 1. Do not say what I don’t really mean Having said that, I am admitting that I utter many words in the momentum…

Wish List aka Bucket List

November 28, 2015

Wishing is Healthy. We live for these wishes -sometimes ours and sometimes our loved one’s. It started with the Indian Movie “Dasvidaniya” which was about the things to be done before death, that I started creating my Wish List. And then I heard about the American comedy-drama film “The Bucket List“. The term has gained popularity since then. Its again a list of all the goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill and things you desire to…

Names and the story behind

November 14, 2015

You may ask – What’s in a Name girl but its the first thing which gives you an identity. Indian government gives us 1 more fundamental right- Liberty to name a person whatever we want. You will say its a norm but No, there are some countries which do have rules for naming a person. Mexican state of Sonora banned many names such as Harry Potter, Hermione, Hitler or Batman. Germany also bars the naming of a child after an…

September 27, 2015

After spending few days in a Hospital while my Tayiji (Elder Aunt) was admitted, I got a chance to experience Hospital life more deeply. I wanted to share my views. So, I decided to write about it. First thing comes to your mind about Hospital life is…Gloomy! Yes, you are right and its because everyone is in pain….Mental or Physical. Being in Hospital, one can feel what a patient is going through: Their pain… Their healing experience…Their fight within…Their wish…

Break Gender Stereotypes

September 14, 2015

Some will laugh at this Some will mock me Others debate over this I live in a country full of stereotypes and Gender stereotypes is the biggest challenge each Indian has to face right from childhood. How much we resist these stereotypes, we cannot get rid of them. We can experience these in 1 way or the other and slowly,…

A daily Thank Note..to Almighty

September 8, 2015

I always remember my school morning thank you prayer: “Thank you for the world so sweet, Thank you for the food we eat. Thank you for the birds that sing, Thank you God for everything” Prayer can be in any form or at any time of the day. The compulsory ingredient should be a thank note rather than how we perform our prayer and at what time. I think place of prayer is important as I myself feel the difference…

You need that favorite corner!

August 30, 2015

East or West Home is the best but there is a piece of every home which make us love our Home even more. Each one of us have a favorite corner in the home where we feel more relaxed, more peaceful. Whenever we are happy or sad, this favorite corner plays an important part. It can be Balcony (Verandah traditionally), kitchen, TV room, a relaxed chair/bean bag OR a swing. For some, washroom can be the one. No no, I am serious. This has…

Unforgettable loving letters from Father

August 23, 2015

Today I want to share my life’s most complex relationship i.e. with my father. Complex because it looks strained from outside but smoother inside just like a Coconut. As a child, He was like a visitor to me who visit us once a year. He wasn’t along with us till I was 11 as he was away for job but his timely letters make me feel loved even today. I never liked his absence for many reasons. Every year, I…
