This has GOT to be my first blog post because (apart from the obvious comedy factor) this really sheds light on our mad, crazy country. Modern India never ceases surprising me… On one hand, we’ve got 60%+ of the country’s population being farmers/agriculturists/villagers, too little electricity for 1.2 billion, cows and dogs on every road like they belong there, and on the other hand, you have short skirts, parties till 4am, feminist bra burning types, awesome media/news etc, margaritas/tequila shots etc.

It’s short of a small miracle wonderland this India—and as is said, eet wonly appens yin Indiya =) Mera Bharat mahaan baby!

The following visual is for your consumption and enjoyment. Please go through it carefully and dig the details in the graphic too! It’s insane!

PS: I found it at the back of an Indian vegetarian recipe book. Yes, it’s true.


So apparently, lately I have not had any time. For anything in my life. Much less a blog. I don’t write in any of these anymore either- my travel journal, my dearest diary, and my poor chottu moleskin that is still waiting for me to jot down my first writing idea.

But now that I’ve sprained my back and rendered myself uselessly lying in bed, I might as well do this—
Main purpose for creating a blog- documentation of sorts. Maybe I’ll see it when I’m 90 (if I’m ever 90), maybe I won’t. Maybe I’ll ask my grandchildren to see it to see what growing up for us was like (and see how cool Grandma is), maybe I won’t. Maybe I’ll collect bits and parts and publish it, maybe I won’t…
But here goes- If you’re reading this, like really reading it- Welcome to my Blog =)
