Lounge Diaries - Part 2

Many of my dear readers messaged /  emailed and connected via my social media channels to complete the missing part of my earlier 'most read monthly ' blogpost : the Lounge Diaries- Part 1.  

Honestly, technology was keeping me busy and hence the delay in sharing Part 2. As I sit in the luxurious American Express proprietary lounge at T3 , I wonder how it feels to fly a plane . Yes , random thoughts and even more complex me. Its a beautiful sight seeing airplanes fly in and out of the sky to the stars and back to the ground .

Eventually , life is also like this . You aim for the stars and then land up back to where you started , the ground . 

You get to meet interesting people when you travel provided you are game to say a hello or a hi to the strangest of people whom you meet. 

I happened to meet an interior designer who was actually scribbling something onto her notebook while I was hand-typing this on my tablet. While she thought I was busy doing some official work , I actually saw her pen down an interesting design of a sea-side villa which caught my eye and hence began a conversation.




While the wait to the flight was a little over 2 hours , we chatted on a number of things -  from demonetization , to the red color of the Starbucks cups , to the art of writing and sharing thoughts to designing something unique for every customer . 

When you are creative it shows.  We talked about TumBin 1 and TumBin 2 and how we miss Jagjit Singh and his soulful voice and we also chatted on the best airline travel credit cards . 

So basically, everything we could think .  It feels nice when you get to talk to someone who doesn't know you and everything is so white , so pure. You feel to be 100% honest , even if this first time is the last time you are meeting ....

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .





Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family & friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
