Biryani

There is something deeply satisfying about sitting on your couch at midnight with a bowl of biryani and a laptop, while the rest of the house is asleep. For those who have never heard of biryani, it is a staple food item in any South Asian home.

I think it vaguely occurred to me to get my day 14 post out but I just couldn’t get my eyes to open. This second day of packing required quite the physical exertion. My mission was the kitchen....more

Drastic Changes

Tuesday, April 14, 2015Do you think you need to drastically change in order to grow in the emotional sense?I’m currently reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and this question made me think of one of her Secrets of Adulthood: ‘What you do every day matters more than what you do once in a while. From my experience, a person is much more vulnerable towards failure when they aim for one huge, vague drastic change and focus solely on that....more

Love, Life, and Fear

By some accounts, emotions show up in two forms: love and fear. It is said that all other forms of emotions are variations of these two basic emotions. Let's look at them....more

You might not want to talk about this.

What makes us think we are a modern, enlightened society? Every newspaper screams headlines about child maltreatment, but most of us turn a blind eye—those who are not affected. Of course the victims have no choice because they suffer physical and mental harm which lasts their whole life long. ...more
