    Little Stories

    Hi everyone, During my time here at the New School, we have had to engage with numerous innovative and experimental concepts while doing our assignments and projects. Today, I wanted to share with you one such series of photographs that I did for my Media Design class. When it comes to street photography, photographing close ups of faces of people on the streets with snippets of their stories has become a huge trend now (Especially with the huge success of Humans of New York). I decided to take a twist on that concept and as a series photographed the mundanity of everyday life through hands. Even though all these photographs were…

    For the love of Old School

    Hey guys, If you know me by now, there’s one thing that I absolutely cannot forego and thats comfort. By comfort  I dont simply mean comfortable clothing, but also the little things that keep us in a happy place. Ever since I was a kid, I would go to the Delhi Gymkhana Club and Delhi Golf Club with my parents every weekend and sometimes more often. There’s something about these clubs that lets me eat my cup of tea, yummy chicken sandwiches or even the endless array of sumptuous food {Sunday buffets YUM} without feeling guilty. Both these clubs being a century or less old are quaint and magnificient at the same…

    Eidi {Photo diary}

    We all have a bucket list and experiencing Eid at Jama Masjid was a part of mine. Though I have lived in Delhi all my life and have been to Jama Masjid multiple times, I just never managed to go there on Eid. This year however, I kept my commitment and headed to the Walled City with a friend of mine. Both of us were extremely excited (especially for the food) and couldn’t wait to try out all that the streets had to offer. We knew that we may not have time to go to Matia Mahal and hence our plan consisted of visiting the Mosque itself and devouring the Biryani,…

If you have been following me on Facebook, you would have seen me talk about a contest that I would be posting on my blog: It’s finally here! {All the details would be at the end of the post } I am constantly on the look out for comfortable yet chic outfits and recently, tshirts have been a big YES for me.

A while back I came across the website BrownBoy while online shopping…

    Delhi Haat: Quintessentially Indian

    My relationship with Delhi Haat is a long one filled with childhood memories and everlasting charm.I used to visit Delhi Haat as a little girl every Sunday evening with mum and dad to enjoy some Momos and Thukpa from the ‘Arunachal Pradesh’ Stall. As I grew older, I found my self drifting apart from this space until I so happened to have pursue my Undergrad degree from LSR leading to myself coming here very, very often. Delhi Haat is a space where one can pass time for hours without really doing anything concretely. It opened as an aircraft bazaar and food plaza  run by Delhi tourism and transportation development corporation…

    #FoodPorn: Di Ghent

    Hello Everyone! I was really craving for a hearty breakfast at Di Ghent and since a couple of  friends are in town, we thought what could be better than catching up while devouring some waffles and coffee.Di Ghent has been my favorite café ever since it opened up in Gurgaon. Co-owned by a Belgian Lady and an Indo-Australian gentleman and located on the second floor of Cross Point Building, right across Galleria Market in DLF Phase 4, this café exports you right to the middle of an a-historical European experience with it’s French windows and the clever use of wood, Di Ghent (From Ghent – a city in Belgium). This…

    Fête de la photo Delhi: My visual diary

    Hello Everyone, Public art in Delhi has been at it’s peak, whether it may be with the Street Art Festival that happened a while back and colored the walls of Shahpur Jat and Hauz Khas Village or the Fête de la photo Delhi- photography exhibition across public spaces all across Delhi (Cannaught Place, Dilli Haat, IGI Airport, National Museum, Jantar Mantar). Fête de la photo as the name suggests is an  encourage initiatives in public spaces by drawing attention to the medium of photography. The idea is to take photography out of the gallery spaces and bring it on the street reclaiming the space it once had.  In an attempt to reach out to the audiences…

    Missing Mcleod Ganj

    Hello everyone! Mcleod Ganj is definitely one of my favorite hill stations in the country and I really, really miss it right now. Delhi’s summer’s back and nothing seems more inviting than a short trip to the hills. I wrote this teavelogue a while back and it was published in Emaho Magazine. Hope you enjoy it 🙂 Think Tibet, think dimsums, think McLeod Ganj. There was something about McLeod Ganj that put me into a state of blissful inertia and I felt as if I had entered a time capsule I didn’t want to leave. Dharamsala, a mere 11kms away seemed absolutely alien to McLeod Ganj in terms of the…
