Back to Basics!

Do monkeys sit in one corner of the earth? NO! They jump from one tree to another, pluck and taste new fruits, play with each other, tease cows and crows, and screech at humans! Were we always human? No! Do our ancestors like us bound? No! Is that why they screech at us? May be, yes!

Hyatt Regency Da Nang Resort and Spa, Vietnam

The stay broke the ice between Hyatt and the Happy Hippie and How! The dominance of ‘H’ is screaming ‘happiness’ here because it was in beautiful beyond words Vietnam. Delay in flights between Cambodia and Vietnam is as common as my craving for coffee, so checking into Hyatt Da Nang was the best part of…

Kochi- Muziris Biennale 2019

What is the purpose of travel? To escape from somewhere or to escape to something? What is the purpose of art?

Hotel Shangri-La, Singapore

As I stepped inside the lobby of Shangri-La, Singapore, looking around reminded me of the James Bond series. For some reason, I imagined Pierce Brosnan flashing a credit card in his signature fashion, flirting with the receptionist all along!

My First Monsoon in God’s Own Country

This was my first summer away from the hills, my sanctum sanctorum, from the scorching heat of Gujarat. I had made two trips to both Garhwal and Kumaon in the previous month, but May and June in Ahmedabad are nothing short of torturous. So I just wanted to go someplace cooler and greener. A blogger…
