And then life happened...


I closed my eyes
And saw the light
I saw the clear blue skies
I heard the flutter
Of a butterfly’s wings
I couldn't help but sigh

I felt the warmth
Of the sun above
Shining down on me
I opened my arms
Embracing life
My heart filled with glee

The cold breeze
The colourful bloom
Heaven it seemed to be
Alas I woke
All too soon
I guess it wasn't meant to be...

Churu - The Rajasthani town that fell off the radar

Sometimes the road less traveled leads you to discover places others just overlooked. If you're lucky..if you're very lucky..you may find a little gem hidden away from the tourist map.

The stunning skyline in Churu
Last month took us towards Bikaner but we got off a few stops before in a small town called Churu. A place that took our breath away with its haunted beauty.

Just 'another' haveli's door

Food Review - Set'z/ Auma/ Cavalli Caffe



DLF Emporio is not just a mall, it is a destination for the privileged. My latest food feature published in the exclusive DLF Emporio Magazine reviews 3 outstanding restaurants in the mall:
  1. Set'z
  2. Auma
  3. Cavalli Caffe
My favorite dessert in town - Hot Chocolate Foam on Rum Granita 

Interiors of the Cavalli Caffe

The review also talks about 'The Cellar', a wine shop that has vintages that you may not find elsewhere. 

Read the article online or get a copy of the magazine from the mall (it is a limited circulation magazine to maintain the exclusivity).
