Delhi Moments | Ram Laddoo Ki Jai!

Delhi’s street food is incomplete without having Ram Laddoos! It is delicious and lip smacking, is readily available and easy on the pocket. It is basically fried pakodas made from moong dal or chana dal batter, served topped with tangy and spicy chutneys and laced with grated daikon radish. And the deep-fried batter-coated green chillies is an added spicy bonus! Ram ladoo is one of my favorite … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Ram Laddoo Ki Jai!

NY Moments | The Grand Central

The city that doesn’t sleep is now catching up on their sleep. The Grand Central Terminal located at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan is always crowded. One would want to stand and take in the architecture and atmosphere but would get in the way of hard-pressed commuters! And now with the world in a lockdown, it is crazy to see this place … Continue reading NY Moments | The Grand Central

NY Moments | Staircase on Street Frontage

I don’t know if you all have noticed but New York has a signature style in their dwellings. They have a metal stair case on their street frontages. Has that rough, rugged look. So many movies and TV series have taken us through them. The balcony scene in West Side Story, Spiderman etc. Anyway, this one in 9th Street was captured on paper by me! Continue reading NY Moments | Staircase on Street Frontage

Delhi Moments | Gender Stereotyped

Coddled, fragile, sensitive. Virile, strong, cerebral. The homemaker and the breadwinner.  Family versus career. The list of stereotypes that was born out the masculine/feminine construct could go on forever. And it’s so extensive that it seems to have been here since the dawn of time. Pink for girls, blue for boys! This is just one of those stereotypes! From birthday parties, to maternity wards to … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Gender Stereotyped

Florida Moments | Lazy Reflections

When you travel from New York to Florida, you feel like time has slowed down. Where you have to run around in NY, you get to savour every moment of Florida. You get to walk in their beautiful beaches, and get to reflect upon your thoughts and yourself. The breeze brushing softly against your face, the waves hitting you, and the sand getting into your … Continue reading Florida Moments | Lazy Reflections

Delhi Moments | Egoless Rejections

The other day my friend and I were sitting in the Londoners Bistro & Pub in GK 1, when two guys came up to us and started a conversation. They definitely wanted to buy us a drink, or may be take us out for a coffee. They complimented us. We smiled. We refused politely. They smiled. They left. Although we politely refused their offer, I … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Egoless Rejections

Oxford Moments | Solitary Christmas

Another throwback post from my dorm room days! This one is for the Christmas time! It’s fun, frequently materialistic and irrevocably social. People plan for it, spend for it, live for it and dread it all at the same time, each year. The ideal Christmas way is to sit around a heavily bedazzled tree, a heftily set dinner table with friends and family. But there I was celebrating solitary Christmas … Continue reading Oxford Moments | Solitary Christmas

Oxford Moments | Shark On The Rooftop

The Headington Shark is a rooftop sculpture located at 2 New High Street, Headington, Oxford, England, depicting a large shark (25 foot to be specific) embedded head-first in the roof of a house.         It’s creepy, but it has become a piece of history for Oxford! It had ‘crashed into the roof’ without planning permission, in August 1986, the 41st anniversary of the dropping of the second atomic bomb … Continue reading Oxford Moments | Shark On The Rooftop
