Saying goodbye to November

2016 has been an interesting year by far . With about a month and half  to go for the switch to happen to 2017 , I hope a positive momentum sustains ; for all of us. 

Like every year , this year as well , till date, I have met some amazing people and some not so genuine ones. I always try to pen down the names and the date when I first met them and see if I would want to carry them ahead with me in the coming year.

Agree , not everyone makes the cut and not everyone needs to. 

Till date , have met people who are elder to me yet immature inside out in a dream world of their own , met people younger to me who have given me food for thought and have also met people that are so pure at heart you just can't make them sad and also the ones that get onto your nerves.

Yes , I will be not in touch with a couple of them and 'me being me' not being in touch means ' game over' for this life for sure . For the remaining , I am sure the bond will continue to grow not because ' I' want it more so since ' we ' want it . And that is life in a nutshell .




In this smart world everyone has a right to be smart . But assuming the other person less smarter than you is a big mistake we make for ourselves . So as an important insight , remove and de-clutter people who are negative in heart and soul and engage and meet with people who charge you up and lift your inner spirits. This small 'edit'  in your life can go a long way by yourself to be happy and spread the cheer around you.

As I sip my flavorful of freshly brewed hand-picked Assam tea overlooking the beautiful Nilgiri Hills at my friend's tea estate , all I can think is life at such places is what I call as real life . I smell an equally scrumptious Irish breakfast awaiting us. 

A beautiful quote right in front me reads as - "  The best thing about keeping busy in your life is there is less time to pick at old wounds ."  

Perfectly summarizes , I guess for the day. 


Check this November song  . Hope you'll like it .

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , 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 . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , 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 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 he undergoes to be one.

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

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

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 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 Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
