What Took So Long? : First Flight

Image
Almost unknown part of our girl gang and not-so-popular face in the school suddenly became a talk of the town, which took me by surprise. I couldn’t realize why everyone was so excited about her returning from Korea after the summer vacations of 2009. Foreign trip  - indeed a matter of pride. For all of us in our girl gang, it was a moment to live by listening to her experience. However, it was beyond me, then, gauging the emotions of excitement as well as perplexity at the same time. Like any other girl of my age, I was more invested in understanding reactions of fellow students than dissecting my own emotions. 11 years later, on May 22, last month, I unearthed the mystery of emotions I had countered in 2009. Layer by layer I discovered my own emotions and found the answer to my joy and confusion of 2009.  First Solo flight  - all hell broke loose and all I could see is myself among the white spongy stack of clouds, while I am looking right into the eyes of the sun as of

Discovering The Maunderer In The Charm of Chandigarh - Part II

Image
Early morning, the golden sun was about to shine bright, the birds were chirping sweet, an artistic morning wasn’t expected in this TaylorMade city. Early but lazy morning, I had. However, had a feeling of spring as soon as I got out of bed with memories of yesterday and amusing zeal for today. The “ Organized City ” makes a call to the “Unorganized Aanya”, I thought. A refreshing glass of juice and a couple of sandwiches was my breakfast with which I started finding myself an Uber . In a few minutes, I was on the wheels again, driven down to the Vegan Fest - Day 2. To me, it seemed the festival was more about saving animals than focusing on veg dishes. Reason being PETA was also invited. Was pretext misplaced? Well, dunno, neither had head to ponder as long as things serve the purpose, what say guys? All I know is I enjoyed Falafel and Ratatouille before I fetched for myself another cab asking driver to make the best use of this day with exploring some amazing places in the cit

Travel to Chandigarh to Witness The Unpolluted Beauty - Part 1

Image
An organized approach to civilized society was last witnessed in Mohenjo-Daro so far as the subcontinent is concerned until we heard the name of the city that is the capital of Punjab and Haryana both. Yes, Chandigarh. Probably only city in north India that makes you fall in love with it due to its people.  The City of Beauty - Chandigarh Indeed, the organized architecture of the city, the gardens, the lakes, the roads, the markets, the food, and its traffic police, everything is fabulous, but what makes the city stand apart is people - polite, helping, friendly, sophisticated, and cultured, something which is rare in north India.  My experience with the city was a two-day affair. But it lasted almost fortnight. Because I wanted to experience all I have heard about the city - the most famous thing I have heard is experiencing peace in the traffic. And, boss, it was exactly how it is. For a few minutes, I stuck in sector 34A, and my god, no honking, no shouting, no people r

“It is super hot here! Why God, Oh, Why?” This is me each time during the summer at home. My mom can’t make me do the thing as many as this heat of summer does years after years. This time it made me find encouragement from Google itself. Surprised? Well, let me narrate a crazy incident recently I caricatured. In order to avoid the heat and find myself so, ET sort of consolations, I went into the debate with Google Assistant. “Hey Google, What is the temperature today?” “Wow! Triple Digits! - Today in Lucknow the temperature is 101”, she replied “Don’t you think it is too hot here?” “Some of my data centers run as hot as 95 degrees Fahrenheit! *inserts fire emoji*” “But it is 101 degrees Fahrenheit here” “I’m no hotter than death valley, which holds the record of 134.06 degrees Fahrenheit” *sun emoji* *shock emoji* “Thanks for the encouragement google!” (*sits and cries in the corner*) I really dunno if the encouragement was sufficient enough or not, but it did one good thing, stimu

Ornaments and Indians are inseparable. Having traveled to a lot of places I witness a cultural change in every city. From Southern cities like Kerela to Bangalore or in the North from Jammu to Jaipur. In the West from Ahmedabad to Ujjain and in the east from Darjeeling to Nepal. I see women donning beautiful emeralds and gems on their fingers. They carry different style, patterns, and design they are from different cultures but their love for rings is undying; similar is mine! Wherever I am traveling I love to collect sovereigns for my room. However, when I make a visit to any city the only thing I love to get for myself, which is mandatory are rings. Why? Once I have a whole lot of collection will let you know! Rings either dainty or feminine, I love all kinds.

Have you ever thought of walking by the river in the wee hours giving complex to the rising sun of the hues? It was quite a match of rays with the rays and shades with the shades. For a traveler, sunrise and sunset are nothing less than a cosmic romance with nature. But, the same sun turns beast for the beauty during the summers, especially if you are traveling. This scorching heat made me think twice before I started packing for my last trip to Chandigarh and I am sure, scenes in my living room will not be different when I will be packing for my next trip to Mumbai. Usually, it’s messy affair to decide what to wear and how to wear in accordance with the weather and the location. However, things have become easy for me of late as I’m on the experiment spree customizing lot many pieces into a silhouette that usually is not. Don’t you believe me?
