Some Chai-Time Gupshup – Year Gone By ☕☕


Wishing all my folks out here a Super Awesome 2⃣0⃣1⃣8⃣ year. Wishing the year brings in good health, and happiness and cuts the negativity out.


Its been long since I had a chat with all. 🙋🏻‍I know the break has been too long but I would surely work on more frequent gupshups in 2018.

With another year gone by, leaving a trail of memories of a lifetime some worth a rewind and replay while some better to be skipped. I guess we all have our moments.


2017 was a year I want to remember for all my travels ⛱⛱ – it started with one and almost ended with one. Multiple road trips, I really explored some Amazing places. I hope you enjoyed my travelogues here, there are many more to come. I really feel thankful about this as I love travelling. I discovered new facets about me too. There was a bad experience which could have proved fatal but I truly believe good things happen to good people with some lessons learnt the hard way.

Healthwise it started on a low and ended with the same problem. An allergic cough, ya I am allergic to smoke and dust. With so much construction always on in metros, traffic and lesser green cover we breathe toxins I feel all the time. Crackers during festivals are enjoyed by many but for me its a cause of worry. This is also due to lack of open spaces in Mumbai, I feel we are only cramping in.

It was a tough health time especially for my father, he has seen through a lot last year. It was obviously hard for the whole family and I Thank God to give us strength. It’s difficult to be weak inside and not show it.


As a blogger the year gave me some moments to cherish, a lot of learnings and few accomplishments too.
