Dakshineshwar Kali Temple in Kolkata, West Bengal (India) is a popular Hindu Temple which is visited in huge numbers by both locals and travelers. I come into the category of both a local (by virtue of my parents having origins in this city) & traveler (since I don't live here and just visit this city on regular basis) and have a beautiful relationship with this temple. I am sharing my experiences of the Dakshineshwar temple with you all here with the hope that when you are in Kolkata, you will definitely visit this temple once.

Online shopping has become a major segment of our shopping experience. This segment of the market has opened up wonderful choices for consumers and retailers alike. For working women, it’s a double boon as it not only saves our time but gives us a plethora of choices to shop from the workstation or home.
Recently I came across this fabulous online lingerie shopping portal called prettysecrets.com. It retails in exclusively in women wear and its major product segments are innerwear, sleepwear, workout, swimwear and shapewear. The shopping portal has a number of reputed brands (Enamor, Peri Peri, Lovable, Triumph, Bwitch to name a few) in each segment, including its own home brand ‘Pretty Secrets’. It has a lot of Sale and offers also going on all the time.

The wonder Indian Garment Saree has been reinvented beautifully for the present times by some Indian designers. One such talented designer is Anupriya DuttaGupta and her label Howrah Bridge. She has come up with a lot of quirky prints and I have got a number of pieces from her collection (see here, here, here and here).
I simply fell in love with this Howrah Bridge Telephone Print Saree and lapped it up immediately. Wore it during the festive season (on Diwali Night actually), pairing it with a quirky pair of RuHH Kanphool Silver & Crystal earrings. Needless to say, I got loads of compliments that night!

The food industry is one of the toughest businesses and more restaurants close each day than they open up. It takes a whole lot of ingenuity, effort and continuous hard work to not only make a restaurant click, but to keep it a favorite over time.
Olive Bar & Kitchen, Mehrauli in Delhi is one such restaurant, which has not only become a favorite among Delhiites (with its beautiful location, ambiance and food), but also keeps bringing up new stuff up its sleeves from time to time. Last weekend, me and the husband went for a cozy dinner at Olive Bar & Kitchen, to taste the new menu by Chef Sujan Sarkar. It turned out to be a gastronomically delightful dinner, coupled with lovely ambiance and service.

Shore Temple in the coastal town of Mamallapuram (also called Mahabalipuram) in Tamil Nadu, India is a mesmerizing UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the best examples of temple architecture in south India, dating from the Pallava Dynasty, dating back to 8th century A.D. I visited this monument, during my marathon South India travel, some time back and the wonderful memories are forever etched in my mind.
