The western ghats have always astounded me. I remember my first venture into the wild, at BNHS CEC in Mumbai where I camped with my friend Gargi Soman. Our ten year-old naive selves were amazed by nature's glory. We were introduced to the wild lexicon like trails, birding, leaf litter and everything we hadn't heard … Continue reading The Drongo Effect
It was 4 am, the dark forest had fallen silent and gently one of my teammates woke me up, "You have to go for the trek, dress-up." This was a planned surprise. To summit the highest point, one has to leave before dawn sets. It was my last day at the field-base and I thought … Continue reading The Other World
The pandemic has taught us that our disregard for other species and their habitats can bring us to insane times like these. But instead of protecting what we are left with , the Ministry of Envrionment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India (MoEFCC) has given a nod to 30+ projects in the national parks … Continue reading Environmental Campaigns & You

But by happening I literally mean a lot. I stopped writing here for what they call … Continue reading Sojourns of the lost mind.
Like every year, a planned family vacation was to happen. We usually do this in winters and find christmas our best time. So this year as well I ventured out with my dad, mumma and my naive little sister in the wild land of Barasinghas and my favourite place to be- Kanha National Park in … Continue reading Charisma of the untamed.
People always appreciate how beautiful and happening mumbai is. And that's true. When a place can teach you by showing you a little of what locals are. When traffic and patience make a great combo and rains garnish the weather over here like no where. Having breakfast packed on the first board exam morning, I … Continue reading Pudhe chala.
Dear mother, Hi. I just scrolled down this blog and realised that something is missing. And that's your presence. So, I'm just going to fill the space with this open letter. Our mornings usually start with what choice of breakfast I'd like. It's not very international, still there's always a platter of your new experiments. … Continue reading To the wonderwoman of my life.

In a world full of everything being judged too early, here's a list of things I'm blogging about that sound cliché to … Continue reading Not cliché enough.
Yesterday while instagraming i conducted this poll of the two misconceptions and people voted feminism to be a one rather than love. So according to this, people feel that feminism is more misconceptualized than love. High five because even i feel the same. Feminism doesn't always rant about what women demand but what women need. … Continue reading Sorting out the unsorted ‘F’ word.
