Himalaya #4FabulousHair Range: A Review

I have long hairs and sometimes I get the urge to get them cut and get some style done but then I remember my mum's non approval of the same and I don't do it and then after two days I thank myself for remembering her words at the right time and not getting my hair shorter at whim because I love my tresses.

But with time, change of places, water, weather, pollution and stress the hair strength has reduced leading to hair fall and I get really worried, the volume has gone. In today's world when food (which give nutrition) is adulterated, there is so much stress about every damn thing and so much pollution, it is difficult to maintain hair and keep them healthy as well.

A dream which will never see the light of day

A dream which will never see the light of day

I am not sure if i can call myself a real fan of Linkin Park because I don't know all their songs by heart nor I know all their albums, but my favorites include songs by them; be it Numb, In the End, What I've done, Leave out all the rest and a few more.

It was my college days when I heard "In the End" for the first time and there was no looking back. They are the reason I started loving English music and then started to listen it profoundly, so much, that my playlist is now 90% English.

Seeing them to perform #Live was on my wishlist, a "dream"; I am heartbroken but guess In The End it Doesn't Even Matter!

RIP Chester Bennington

Why Ladakh?


Ask any true traveler and Ladakh will be on the top of their list. 

The breathtaking landscape, cold breeze, unadulterated blue sky, whitewashed stupas, colorful fluttering prayer flags, picturesque gompas (Tibetan monasteries), the humming sound of praying wheels & bells, rustic mountains, green patches in between, beautiful lakes, snow capped peaks, cold desert and warmth of Ladakhis in this land of two seasons, cold and extreme cold; Ladakh is full of contrasts. It is nestled between the Great Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges (does these words ring a bell? School days? Geography?). 

I had been planning to go and experience this untouched, undisputed beautiful destination with my buddies since I graduated but guess the time was never right, until I visited it last month with 23 beautiful strangers. Strangers or friends, alone or as a couple; one should visit Ladakh at least once in their lifetime. Here are a few reasons which will sure sweep your feet off!

Altitude Sickness: Tips, Tricks and Hacks

It's been almost a week that I am back from the trip of my dreams i.e. "Road trip to Ladakh" but can't get over it yet. So much so that, even yesterday in my dream I saw myself somewhere in the mountains enjoying the "hailstorm". In fact when I open social media, I see people either posting pictures of their Ladakh trip or planning one. June to September being peak season for this trip, this year it's been most touristy. During my trip, I even heard that the tourists during this year (till now) have almost matched the population of the region Ladakh.

With anyone and everyone wanting to go to Ladakh, my stance is that one should not visit a place under any kind of peer pressure. The first and foremost step in wanting to go to Ladakh is to make sure that your body is ready for it as much as your heart and mind.

A memoir by Ruskin Bond

LOOKING FOR THE RAINBOW  my years with Daddy


On his 83rd birthday, its a memoir by Ruskin Bond of the two years he spent with his father and it is an emotional read. 

As he said in his book, When we are small we need someone to hold our hand in the dark.
So true. As kids we are so dependent & we do look upon our parents to hold us, to save us from dark.
