The Ayana Resort- Rimba Jimbaran Bali

One of the most charming places to stay in Rimba Jimbaran, Bali, Ayana sprawls across 90 hectares of land area. Yes, it does have the ocean view. No, it’s not included in the resort area I just mentioned. 😛 The dazzling driveway between the entrance and the resort reception itself gives you a sneak-peak into…

What’s your Spiritual Story?

I have been brought up in the foothills of Himalayas, in a town called Rishikesh in Uttarakhand. The holiest river in the world, ‘the Ganges’, twists and turns around it like a perennial bridge to serenity. Having been close to nature instills a sense of thoughtfulness. Witnessing people from across the world travel to find…

Badrinath

  I have been visiting this place since childhood yet every time I gaze at those hills, it feels like a new beginning all together! Badrinath is a hilly and holy town in the state of Uttarakhand, India. At an altitude of 10,170 feet, Badrinath is on the banks of river Alaknanda between the Nar…

Spinach, Sweet Potato, Carrot Salad

My constant disappointment in India is the unavailability of good salads. I often crave a big bowl with fresh greens, contrasting textures, a riot of colours and interesting flavours. Not to mention, the feel-good-factor attached to all things healthy 😀 My recent experiments with diet were subconsciously oriented towards protein-rich salads, but I guess I…

Can Vegans be protein-rich? Hell Yeah!

“Vegan diet must be a penance for sins you committed in the past”, said a friend, laughing. Many people perceive the vegan diet as boring, tasteless or simply punishing! Anything personal has the scope to be experimental, just like the food we eat. My own experiment with no carb, high protein diet changed that perspective…

What not to do at a restaurant

Hey Foodies, Howdy? I’m dreaming cafes and restaurants. Don’t we just like the idea of food diversification and a smiling face serving those luscious varieties to us? You see, it’s never the food alone but the whole experience that counts. While we get an experience at an eatery, we also give an experience to the…

Mental Health at Work-Place

On the occasion of World Mental Health Day, a group of people sensitive towards mental health initiated an event to gather more of such sensitive people for an open talk on October 10. Kavya, the founder of Cafe Otenga and a student at National Institute of Design, was our gracious host. Her idea behind this…

Beetroot & Cabbage Cutlets

  Hey Fellow Hippies! Hope you’re keeping your tastebuds happy and your gut healthy. I had vanished in between to the ‘Food Capital of Punjab’, a.k.a Amritsar. How I had to keep away from it’s pride chole- bhature (Deep fried wheat bread served with chick peas in spicy tomato and onion gravy)! Anyhow, more about…

Why Singapore is what it is!

  I had often heard about couples visiting Singapore for honeymoon. As I prefer destinations with natural surroundings, I used to wonder what takes them to the city of vertical development with everything man-made, except for the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea. My bad, I underestimated this place with ‘good vibes’ until my…

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Joey loves Pizza, and so do all of us! But every time after gorging on one, I used to have these guilt pangs. 😦 Please don’t overestimate my fitness level, I am not a superwoman! I just try to be one with minimum effort possible. 😀 And.. and.. and.. Pizza only deserves love and respect,…
