I travelled to Dehradun last summer to meet my childhood friends whose parents are staying there and they all come together in the parents’ home every summer. We are family friends with uncle and aunty being very close to my … Continue reading Dehradun
I went to see Tubelight very reluctantly. I was not keen on seeing it and mom was. Despite the frame of mind I was in, the movie was just about okay. There are two themes of the movie, both good ones – one is believing in something with all your heart and it will happen and the second is that you don’t need to be a born an Indian to be an Indian from heart. The performances by Sohail Khan, the small boy Matin Rey Tangu and Zhu Zhu are the highlights of the film. They do full justice to … Continue reading Tubelight – An honest Review
This post is written as a part of Indispire Edition # 175 – Share about any place that you would love to revisit. What makes the place special? #TimeToRevisit From a very young age, I have been passionate about travelling with a list of many dream destinations. The love for travelling comes from my army background and frequent transfers. The place that topped the list of my dream destinations is Paris. So it was a dream come true when in 2008, my dad said that we will go on a holiday to Paris. I was ecstatic and on Cloud Nine. … Continue reading A Place to Revisit!
When I was a little girl, my grandmother would keep teaching me about everything a girl should be – a girl should be softspoken, she should be modest, she should not have strong opinions and views, she should be extremely tolerant whatever the circumstances and protesting against injustice, what’s that(she still is the most beautiful memory of my childhood days because of the lovely summer memories she created for us). And today when she is no more and I am the exact antithesis of whatever she taught me, she must be squirming or finally she is proud of me? On one … Continue reading The Saga of the Under Attack Feminist
From the time the Modi government came into power, I have been a sceptic, completely sure that this government will not make a difference in people’s lives. It will be the same circle of false promises, hopes shattered and disappointment. I still am a sceptic, waiting and watching to see if the government lives up to the people’s trust. One of the latest moves by the government that has people(especially the young people) scared and worried is the Anti-Romeo Squad started in U.P. We are automatically worried and concerned that it is a garb for harassing couples. I completely empathize … Continue reading Anti-Romeo Squad – A Protective Act or a Restriction of Freedom
I had missed watching Befikre in the movie hall and I had been very keen to watch it. I missed it when it came on T.V. Recently, I subscribed to Amazon Prime Video. It is amazing with a good movie collection, excellent quality and very convenient. I found Befikre in the movie collection and settled down to watch it on Gudi Padwa since it was a holiday. The movie is set completely in Paris, it is my most loved city amongst all I have visited. I have a forever romance with Paris. The movie explores love and relationships as they … Continue reading A Late Review of Befikre
I am a big Emma Watson fan and from the time the movie was announced with the first trailer, I was finding it difficult to wait for the movie to release. The first trailer itself looked so dreamy and perfect! When the movie released, I went with a close friend to see it. I sincerely think that the right company for such movies is very important, someone who will understand the varied emotions you experience while watching a movie like this. I won’t be elaborating on the story of the movie since most of us are aware of the story … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast
From my childhood, I have simply been fascinated by the moon. It is a love affair that is forever. There is something about the looking at the moon in the night sky that soothes me, lets me forget all troubles and tensions for a while and takes me to another world. Hence, every time there is a Supermoon announcement, I am all excited. 14th November 2016 was one more such day. Somehow, every time I miss out on the perfect photograph. However, this time I was determined. It took many attempts with my simple digital camera but I got the perfect … Continue reading Supermoon, 14th November 2016
I am a big movie buff and a movie I was really looking forward to was Ae Dil Hai Mushkil! The amazing starcast itself had me drooling. Aishwarya Rai, Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor, Fawad Khan – I couldn’t wait for it to release. Eventually, the movie released and I went to see it. The movie starts off well with the awesome bonding between Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. You are in splits of laughter at their antics and the carefree way they live. Their bond is sweet and endearing. Ranbir falls in love with her but she is … Continue reading Ae Dil Hai Mushkil – Simple Life made Mushkil!

When I was 14 years old, I got it into my head that I wanted to be a journalist. I was very keen on it and was working towards that goal by honing my English skills and writing. But life has its own twists and turns. My father was an army officer and he didn’t have a very high salary. My brother and I are just one year and nine months apart with him being older than I am. He went into Engineering college and I was in 11th standard that time. When I passed out of 12th, he was … Continue reading My Life as Written by Myself!
