Holy Basil, Radisson Blu Plaza, Hyderabad.

Okay, so I am pretty sure, like a hundred percent sure about the fact that I was an Asian in my past life. When I say Asian, I mean more towards the eastern part of the continent Asian. And only that can explain my love for Pan Asian cuisine. Be it Vietnamese Pho or Kung…

The Black Sheep Bistro, Panaji, Goa.

If there’s heaven on earth, it has to be a place like Goa. It’s been half a decade since I first went to Goa, with a group of clueless people heading to yet another destination for yet another bachelorette party. My bachelorette party to be precise and that is when my secret affair started. Goa is…

Desi with a twist!

I am the laziest person I know, when it comes to dressing up. For me, an ethnic day dressing involves a cotton kurta, with a pair of leggings and silver jhumkas. But I do love to wear a saree, once in a while, the least difficult to wear , already draped ones! Bollwood makes wearing…

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.
