ZZZ LONG ZZZ

Okay tell me how long have you slept in a day? Ever? After my school final exams I was exhausted, like really exhausted with the last minute studies and back to back exams. I remember our last exam was maths exam (which I completely hated) and I just wanted to go home and eat and […] Read more…

Yummy Arabian Masala

As a kid who has been born and brought up in Kolkata I wasn’t pretty good with Hindi. We had it as the third language in school. Communicative Hindi was ok but that was mostly from watching TV and movies.   We spent a few weeks in London some time in 2006. My dad used […] Read more…

Tricking the Thief

I was at work when my husband whatsapped to inform some foreign currency was missing from the bed side table drawer! He was back from his work trip just a day back. When I was back home we searched the entire drawer and our cupboards but still some 250 USD were missing. But more than […] Read more…

Surprising Statistics

This for once is not about any travel incident. I was writing the post yesterday and thinking why is that all funny things happen while I travel! Then I thought hard to remember things from school and college. Then I remembered about my statistics paper! God it is a story indeed. I have always hated […] Read more…
