I have always been fascinated by portrayal of rustic Punjab in our Hindi Movies and wanted to experience the whole gamut of seemingly fascinating depictions of farmers happily working in the fields, driving tractors, golden fields, rich food and the Punjab ’pind’ (loosely translated village community) thing. And though I have travelled extensively through North India (both on work and leisure), my travels to Punjab has been limited to Chandigarh (which is only technically part of Punjab) and Amritsar. So it was a lovely opportunity for me to travel to the Sangrur & Mansa regions of Punjab on a work trip. The previous week, I travelled back & forth through the heart of rural Punjab and experienced to the fullest, the ‘rustic’ Punjab. The experience has authenticated every portrayal of rustic Punjab for me as a traveler.

It's the last quarter of the year and the season of celebrations. In India, especially, it's the wedding season and endless party season. Which means, lots of dress up, loads of new outfits, make up and jwellery!! I kickstarted the party season this tyear, with a big 'Annaprashan' (weaning ceremony) Party for my daughter. It was lovely having together all our friends & family to celebrate our child's new journey.
I chose my most dependable brand 'Howrah Bridge' and a bright color block Saree for the occasion. The fabulously talented proprietor & friend Anupriya DG made this custom made Saree for me in combination of bright colors which look so great together.

International chain of Harry's bars opened up its second outlet at Khan Market, Delhi (my favorite market in Delhi) couple of months ago and now they are already revamping their drinks & food menu. I was invited to a fun evening of the preview of new drinks & food menu by mixologist Shatbhi Basu and Chef Vicky Ratnani. I had a wonderful time post my office and loved the new range of drinks Harry's have come out with.

Delhi, having a long history of almost continous settlement since ancient times, has an interesting architecture & urban landscape. One can find ancient monuments next to spanking new skyscrapers.
I love discovering & visiting such lesser known heritage monuments in my city. Agrasen ki baoli was one such monument I wanted to visit for a long time but could not make it due to various reasons. So, when I joined a new office in Lutyens Delhi area which is located close to the monument, I lost no time in visiting Agrasen ki baoli. I loved the calm, laidback ambiance of this place & would be coming back here a lot. Sharing some images of my maiden visit to Agrasen ki Baoli.
