A poem for my son on his 1st Birthday!

My dearest son as you turn one, Let me tell you something, You light up my world like the shining sun, You don’t know how much joy you bring. For you, the world changed, The day you were born, From the warmth and comfort of the womb. To the world you now adorn. The first…

JUNIOR’S FASHION WEEK 2019, HYDERABAD : A DAZZLING AFFAIR

The Junior’s Fashion Week was recently held in Hyderabad and I am still suffering from a fashion hangover! I was one of the Bloggers covering the event, officially. I was so impressed with the entire execution of the event, that I couldn’t help myself from spamming my social media with numerous photos and videos. Seeing…

My Breastfeeding journey.. So far..

On 29th October 2018, morning 10:30 AM, a clueless drugged me had a tiny baby attached to my breast. I am one of the most fortunate mothers whose baby did not trouble her at all and latched properly in the first attempt. But.. as is the case with a few fellow mothers, I had to…

C-section over Normal Delivery?

Even though the world is against C-section delivery, I am glad I went for it. Right from the time I conceived, I was inclined towards a caesarean delivery. As they say, to each his own, my idea of childbirth just did not involve hours of labour. I was scared and just thought I couldn’t do…

How I dealt with postpartum depression.

I am going to be super honest while writing this post. After delivering a child, our hormones just go for a toss. Even we, ourselves, are not aware of what might happen. PPD (Post-Partum Depression) is different for every Mom. Some may not even feel any sort of anxiety or depression at all; some may…

I can do it all!

I am on my way to work after seven long months. It’s my first day back at the office, after maternity leave. I feel a thousand emotions yet I feel numb. I will still try to put down my the feelings into words so that non-moms ( not sure if that’s a word) can understand…

Ciclo Cafe : An experience to remember!

Ciclo is not to be pronounced as Cycl-o but actually cheek-low. Now that we got the basics right, let me tell you that it is one of the best places in Hyderabad in terms of the food they serve and the interiors! In an already crowded part of the city, a cafe with a sexy…

24 hours in Mumbai! The Global Citizen Festival

I saw COLDPLAY perform live on stage. I can die peacefully now, so peacefully. Global Citizen Festival fulfilled forty thousand dreams and more! I still get goosebumps when I actually think about it! I saw Shah Rukh Khan! The Shah Rukh Khan! I love him, just love him. And then A.R. Rahman sang ‘Vande Mataram’ with…

May the Spice of Malaka shine bright!

Malaka Spice has an intriguing name and thanks to Piyush, for deciphering it for us. Malaka Spice is one of the best Asian restaurants, in Pune. The newly opened branch in Hyderabad is one of the best looking places, the city has. The USP of the place is it’s location. There’s natural rock formation along…

Not homeward-bound during Durga Poojo….

You want to know what Durga Poojo (the biggest annual festival for bengalis, celebrating good over evil) means to a Bengali, ask me! Or better still, ask any “Bong” residing any where in the world. I know the feeling used to be completely different during our childhood, when our extended family huddled together in a room to play cards and…
