Even in the darkest, saddest, lowest moments of one’s life, never stop preaching. People still need good advice.

  • What I see from my balcony?

    July 13, 2020 by

    Hello! I am back! I felt guilty for not writing for so long. But what do I say! These are unrealistic times! Covid right! It’s fantastical. It’s very difficult to believe what is happening and we are actually getting used to it. So, what’s the new normal? Is it the big moustache? Or immersing oneself… Read more

  • Exploring Jaipur # 1 (Year: 2020)

    February 16, 2020 by

    Last weekend was our two years marriage anniversary (Yayy!!) and after much nagging coupled with a few tantrums I convinced my plant of a husband to uproot himself from our couch to come on a road trip! Destination was a major North Indian tourist attraction which I mostly overlooked till now due to its proximity… Read more

  • The “Sis” code

    November 23, 2019 by

    In a job interview, they usually ask you examples of team spirit, supporting colleagues, thinking on your feet, problem solving. As a girl, I don’t need to look beyond my teenage years to find real life situations where I used one or all of these skills seamlessly. Pop culture has mostly celebrated the “bro” code!… Read more

  • A Tale of resilience

    November 18, 2019 by

    It’s been a while! Miss me? Wondering what happened? Well, life happened! Did you think I wasn’t coming back? You’re wrong! I may be lazy & indisciplined but I DO NOT GIVE UP! As a comeback, let me share a story to showcase my resilience. This was about three years back, when Delhi had only… Read more

  • Growing a green thumb

    October 1, 2019 by

    I have always been in love with plants. As a kid, I volunteered to water some sixty potted plants that my parents managed to keep alive in addition to three children!! One should have a strong heart to maintain gardening as a hobby. Why? Well, encountering a lizard especially if it leaves its tail behind… Read more

  • Exploring the Taj (Year: 2018/2019)

    September 24, 2019 by

    It’s a shame! In 27 years of my existence mostly 200 kilometers away from the Taj, I never visited it. It was always on my bucket list. I felt the worst when I visited the Great wall of China even before I got a chance to step in Agra. However, this changed last year. Since… Read more

  • My perfect self

    September 19, 2019 by

    Yes, I am a hypocrite. I would like to write “watching movies” under hobbies, but, end up writing “reading books” instead. Hobby is something you derive pleasure from in your leisure time. Then, why judge people who like to innocently just watch television? Why are we obsessed with being productive even in our leisure hours?… Read more

  • What are you in the mood for?

    September 11, 2019 by

    Stories: An experience from my life worth sharing! Based on true events! Rants: Observations & opinions..Especially the ones that make me go blah blah blah…. Travelling toes: Not your regular travel blog..meaning less informative and more opinionated.. Preachy’s Projects: Real life mini projects with me! Let’s start a journey together…

  • 21 days Journey # Honest confession

    October 1, 2019 by

    Just a quick update. I started with full swing but couldn’t achieve my goals daily. Some unforeseeable reasons and some very seeable reasons which were completely in my control. I was a little hesitant while sharing the initial post..”What if I am not able to complete the task?” “What if I am not able to… Read more

  • 21 days Journey

    September 25, 2019 by

    I recently watched a great web series which recommended that any activity religiously followed for 21 days turns into a habit. If you have read my earlier posts, one thing would be clear by now, I don’t hesitate in taking life lessons from pop-culture. I wanted to give it a try! First thing, I narrowed… Read more

  • The grocery bag

    September 17, 2019 by

    Some years back, I was staying with my colleagues in a three-bedroom flat. Let’s name the flat-mates for our convenience: Preachy (yours truly), Baby & Perfect (Checkout my post on “Types of flat-mates” to know the origin of these names). They could manage only late-night interactions on weekdays as all had different office hours. One… Read more

  • Exploring the States # 1 (Year: 2017)

    September 13, 2019 by

    Couple of years back I visited USA for office work. Managed to squeeze in a vacation as well. When you visit a new place this far from home, you would surely want to see the major attractions. US has plenty to offer: New York, LA, Vegas. My work schedule allowed me to visit two of… Read more

  • Exploring the South # 1 (Year: 2011)

    September 12, 2019 by

    Oh yes, I did it. I started a travel blog! Vibe of “The preachy one” is everyday experiences..it’s fair to include travels as well. However, it’s not your regular travel blog, meaning less informative and more opinionated. I would include instances of my previous travels also, which might not have alot of photo content. My… Read more

  • Save our generation

    September 9, 2019 by

    Netflix, Amazon and now even Disney..Everyone is moving towards on demand content rather than broadcasting it the old fashioned way. It’s so much fun to watch what you like, when you like and keep watching..keep on watching…KEEP ON WATCHING… Binge watching is one of the greatest adversaries of our generation. It’s less of an entertainment… Read more

  • It happens only in India

    September 5, 2019 by

    India is a dynamic, soulful, colorful, unique country. Most of all it’s full: full of life, full of people, full of energy, full of experiences! There’s a common saying “It happens only in India!” which came from a popular Bollywood song. There are incidents which make my belief in this very strong! Once, I was… Read more

  • My motivation..

    September 4, 2019 by

    I have been working for more than six years now. Recently, I can feel my motivation to go to office dwindle. Nop, it’s not related to my commitment towards work. I do enjoy going to office for the fresh challenge it brings every day. By challenge I surely mean the ocean of traffic I need… Read more

  • Do I feel pretty?

    September 1, 2019 by

    A general tactic for any salesman is flattery. Load the client with compliments to make the sale. “This color is meant for you, Ma’am” “This shoe is a perfect fit for your pretty feet!” Fake or real, one usually comes home with lighter pockets but riding a huge wave of newly found confidence! Any guesses… Read more

  • Beginner’s guide to Flat-mates

    August 29, 2019 by

    Moving out of parent’s place for the first time could be overwhelming! Along with the new city, job and being a grown up, come multiple un-knows. Biggest one being “the flat mate”. Having moved across four cities for work, I have had my fair share of flat mates. Here are a few kinds I encountered:… Read more

  • Let’s fly…

    August 28, 2019 by

    Imagine standing on the curb, near your favorite hot dog stand. Every couple of minutes you’re inching towards yummy goodness. The weather is a little hot, but you don’t mind it that much. Now imagine there’s a Michelin star hi-end restaurant with glass walls just behind the hot dog stand. You can see people enjoying… Read more

  • The “unromantic” proposal

    August 26, 2019 by

    Around 9 PM, pleasant weather, racing heart..Could faintly hear a couple of ladies gossiping..there was a distinct stink of an old dirty cloth..and yes, this was the most romantic moment of my life…Hold it! Let’s rewind a bit.. It was the year 2006. This was the first time I saw him. We both were enrolled… Read more
