Our Inner Diva

We come across articles online or in the papers about the divaesque behavior of the celebs. But what about the diva that lives within us all? The one who is temperamental? Volatile even and turns away in a huff? The one who turns up their nose at some transgression-imagined or otherwise. I am very closely … Continue reading Our Inner Diva

A Post From The Past

I wrote this post on a Word doc years ago and didn't get around to publishing it. Discovered it today and publishing it because it's still relevant and I'm still fighting for my space on the bed!" Travails of Sleepytime Many of us sleep alone at nights. And they are the lucky ones. The ones … Continue reading A Post From The Past

Movie Review: Veere Di Wedding

I almost didn't watch this movie. Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor aren't quite the draw for me personally. Add to it, the reviews had been less than stellar and I didn't want to watch a badly made chick-flick when I could use those 2 hours to sleep or read instead...color me pleasantly surprised!

The Little Piggies In A Woman’s Life

Different … Continue reading The Little Piggies In A Woman’s Life

The Joys of Living Alone

I've lived in a dorm, as a boarder and lived with my folks till I was an adult and those things really drill it into one's head about the utter necessity of having your own space for your own shit. … Continue reading The Joys of Living Alone
