Oh ghosts, gothic buildings, castles and cafes: A break in mesmerising Edinburgh




I was to write from Edinburgh but I got lazy. This isn’t unexpected, as you all know by now. This introspective process of writing belongs to people who are content with retiring to quietude to reflect and ponder. How was I to find any quiet time when my companion on my trip was my mother? … Continue reading »

An English summer and the unbearable confusion of wanting to do too much




“Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” — Samuel Johnson So well, it is another glorious summer here in London, the English summer … Continue reading »

A brief vacation in Malta




  I am not a beach person. I have very low tolerance for heat, sand makes me dirty, marine algae creeps me out and I do not even want to start on what sea air does to my hair. This is the reason that as a family we are mostly ending up in cool climes … Continue reading »

On playing with fire and close encounters with the FDNY in New York.




Today was an eventful day. We almost tasted our fifteen minutes of fame courtesy the spouse, in New York, Warhol’s own city, no less. It so happened that the spouse decided to fix the older one some breakfast this morning since I was busy running an errand with the younger one, not far from our … Continue reading »

About Ashley Madison, Tinder, illicit love and some more updates from New York




There is so much going on in NYC that I am surprised I find any time to write at all. It is not uncommon to run into people one knows from Bombay when in London but there is less likelihood of that happening in New York City owing to its size and population. You can … Continue reading »

More posts from New York City




I am the most tyrannical mother ever. I torment my children by dragging them with me to art galleries and museums sometimes when we travel. This has made my company less desirable as far as they are concerned. Not only has my effort to expose them to galleries across cities failed to whet their appetite … Continue reading »

St Petersburg: And I say to myself, Oh what a wonderful world




I was already in love with the notion of St Petersburg long before I arrived there.  It was one of those cities of the world I had romanticized about since I was very young. I, therefore, was almost afraid to visit it, lest I be disappointed. Snapshots of the city, some imagined from Russian classics, … Continue reading »

An English summer and an inflamed tendon – loving and limping in London




  I am spending the last bit of my children’s summer vacation in London.  Who does not love the English summer? I like to spend my days in London walking around aimlessly, stumbling in and out of cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries and shops. In preparation of my profoundly purposeless existence in London, I engage the … Continue reading »

The Sophisticated Traveler




I have not posted much since I returned from Japan, this is probably because all I ever want to do lately, is to write about Japan. The other reason is that I have been a bit unsettled ever since I returned and it is always such an effort to go back to one’s routine. Traveling … Continue reading »
