Welcome to my world, have a nice stay.

This blog started off as a way of wanting to preserve and share with the world, things that inspired me – the various excerpts from books, classic poemsspeeches, etc.. Somewhat like a commonplace book. Now, I also add original content to this blog— glorious tales of my glamorous travels, my recipe-defying culinary feats, and how I use my secret superpower to save the world.. You get the drift.

What this blog is clear about is not containing opinion pieces, analytical articles, social commentary or persuasive diatribes. Why? Because I spend a significant amount of my time reading them. And everything I have to say, has already been articulated in an excellent, thorough manner, by someone, somewhere in the world wide web. My two cents are best within the confines of my mind. I hope this explains the title of my blog. It’s not going to change your life.

A little about me: I report and write on a variety of topics for a reputed monthly magazine in India.  Feminist, spiritual and restless are some of the words that best describe me. I often day dream about people, places and conversations that take place in an alfresco cafe on a cobbled European street. If you have something you want to share with me,  leave behind a comment.

Thank you!
