4 Halloween Things I Have Never Done (But Always Wanted To)

First up, I live in India. Halloween? It is not a thing here.

We celebrate Diwali/Kali Puja here (dubbed the largest festival of India). Even though this alternative celebration…

The Time I was in a Professional Theatre

The best part of being acting on stage is being live and seeing the feedback of your audience, their applause and aww, their sadness and anger. Somehow, all this vibe finds its way back into your acting again, thus coming full circle. All these reasons and more have always made me feel connected and interested…

The Time I started Blogging for UNICEF

I was always interested to work with UNICEF. It was last month that the opportunity came from nowhere. I was scrolling through the Instagram feed like a lazy dog that I am. Drinking coffee.

The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein: Book Review

Why I won’t watch Game Of Thrones leaked Episodes

I Quit Caffeine for a Month!

There is one ingredient that is common in a Blogger/Writer/Columnist/Painter/High School Student/Procrastinator starter pack. Between the late night work hours, cramming sessions and the sudden realisation of forgotten deadlines, I, tend to get tired. Besides rarely gulping down a can or two of energy drinks that taste like “cough syrup”, I like to drink something…
