Namaste Delhi

It’s been almost 10 years since I was here last.  And we both have changed. As I got out of the plane, I braced myself for that all familiar smell of paan and urine, one of the first things that hits you in India. But there was none! If the signs didn’t say ‘Welcome to... Continue Reading →


The One-Night Option

I am writing this on yet another over-night train journey and the fact that there is a Brazilian couple on the top bunks above me whispering playful whatevers to each doesn’t actually help writing this post!

Lessons in Kuala Lumpur
