On a windy & dusty Sunday, I made a trip to a place I had planned to visit since 2013. In spite of being only about 30 kms or so away from where I live, and inspite of passing by the place quite a number of times, I simply could not manage a trip to this place. I guess, things happen only when they are meant to be. And so, one Sunday, I finally stepped inside the Assam Buddha Vihar, a Buddhist monastery perched on a hilltop in Amingaon, Kamrup, Assam.

…self-love. I believe it is the purest form of love. Only when we can love ourselves, can we pass on the love to others. And i believe its not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself and make your own happiness a priority, because it is necessary. Also, if one does not feel good about oneself, it is hard to feel good about anything else.
As they say, “Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.” (more…)
Is it February already? Where did January go? I am so caught up in things and work and I don’t know what that the first month of the year just flew by and I could not even write a post to welcome the year……sigh! But as I always say, better late than never! 🙂 (more…)
❤ I would tell you how fast everything around me is moving, especially these last few days of 2016. I have so many things to do and so little time. My laziness, especially while getting up in the morning, is adding to the woes (more…)
Band, Baaja, Boys! is a sure-fire laugh riot that will make you giggle, chortle, chuckle and often burst into large guffaws. BA-pass Brajesh sold bras in Manphodgunj. Perhaps his destiny was sealed the day Babuji named him Bra-jesh. Under normal circumstances, Brahmins were not supposed to be businessmen. But Kumud Bajpai had brought along a hosiery shop as dowry and there was no looking back. Only front! One glance and Brajesh could estimate, ‘Madam, 38D will be perfect.’ Together, they had produced and raised Binny, their twenty-year-old daughter, who they lovingly called a ‘happy-go-lucky’ girl: happy to spend her father’s money while different fellows got lucky. As was noted by most of Manphodgunj’s male population, Binny had come of age. Who, from the queue of suitors will bag her? Raja, who has lost his heart to her? Or, the ‘gorment‘- job-holder Tarun? Or, will it be the Sanskari-N.R.I., Harsh? Or, will Binny spurn all of them and elope with Rahul Pandey? Band, Bajaa, Boys! will take you on the laugh-o-coaster of your life!
The past weekend was kind of a let’s-celebrate-womanhood for me. Today, many people understand feminism as feminazi and I would like to make it clear here that I am all for the former only. Let’s make it clearer with their definitions –
Feminism (noun): the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. (Source)
Feminazi (noun): a term used pejoratively to describe either feminist who are perceived as extreme or radical, women who are perceived as seeking superiority over men, rather than equality(Source)
