Do you believe in fairies? If not, your opinion is about to change today. Because some fairies are all set to bestow the “Book magic” on Indore. If you are at Café O2 De La Ville today, look out for free books dropped by book fairies.

Sponsors and Partners - Coffee with Authors and Artists



"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

When Kaffeinated Konversations started its journey a couple of years back, there weren’t many who realized that community would grow at this pace. A thought of having an event about books or literature seemed too far-fetched then. But that did not deter them. Like-minded people came together and the community grew. People started noticing and joining in various forms.

There's more to Indore than just food - The Immersive Project- Literature, Art & all things creative


As the temperature soar this summer, the people of Indore take respite in their air-cooled homes and offices with ice-creams and chilled mango shakes. But a particular group of people can be seen running around from one part of the city to another with diaries and planners in their hands. The scorching sun does not deter them. Neither does the opinion of many people who think that Indore prefers food festivals over literature. Crazy, over-enthusiastic , just another start up looking for quick fame are some of the labels they have braved in the last few months when they announced “Coffee with Authors and Artists”, an exclusive event woven around all things art and literature.

In the name of #BookLove- Happy Birthday Kaffeinated Konversations




If you like reading, you will probably agree with me that it isn’t a very social hobby. You can’t read in a party or a social gathering after all, can you? Given a choice, we would like to stay in our rooms for days at a stretch with a book(s) to keep us company. We are often ridiculed for being anti-social or even crazy. Nobody understands the joy of reading and the whims of a bibliophile. Except the equally crazy people who think there is a parallel, even better, world in books. Like the folks of Kaffeinated Konversations, the book club of Indore.

Caution: Feminist Post Ahead



And one more International Women’s Day (and week) gone by! We did our bit. Shared our enthusiasm on the social media. Tagged the women we thought deserved a special mention. Used the word “empowerment” at least 25 times. Did some men-bashing while the men stood by and let us be. It was rightfully “our” day afterall. Had a blast in the evening with our girl gang. Or were pampered by the domestic men folk by a home-made treat and some respite from the mundane chores. Made best use of the offers and discounts showered upon us thoughtfully(?) by brands. Ooohh! What a day it was. So now that we are done feeling special, let’s get back to being real.

Genie in a capsule - Vitamin E #Evion



When in 20s, your skin has a shining glow that hardly needs any makeup. Your hair is healthy and vibrant. But when you cross the age-mark of 30, natural deterioration of cells starts and its first signs are visible on your skin and hair. As you close towards 40s, the signs become prominent. I was no different to this rule of nature.

Guest post for Novemberschild #BlogLove



Those who blog have their reasons to do it. Some like to write and share their work, some like to help and guide people by sharing their expertize. Some also say that it is therapeutic. For a few others, it is about making money. However, one reason that is common to all of them is that blogging connects you to wonderful people from across the world. Even if you haven't met them in person, they become a part of your blogging life. You help out each other when you are stuck and they pull you out. You take inspiration from each other and celebrate the milestones together.

Life Lessons #GrandParentsDay #LoveJatao


I am yet to meet somebody who does not think fondly of their grandparents. Some were fortunate to be cared and nurtured by their grandparents, while some wish they could have had them for a longer period. There are also a few who have seen theirs only in pictures. But there is always something special about the love of grandparents.

Harmony

The Piano – #FridayFotoFiction Sep 1-6 Flash Fiction Writing

88 black and white keys find a way to live harmoniously. You and I couldn’t find a single melody to resonate in our hearts. Each time we struck a wrong cord, the harsh music reverberated through our dying love. There couldn’t have been a melody in the vengeful notes we were writing for each other. There couldn’t have been harmony in the soul-less music that echoed endlessly. Isn't it amusing how lifeless keys can produce melodies but two living souls could not find any music in their hearts?

70 years- Too Young to be Perfect?



#IndependenceDay

In a couple of days, India completes its 70 years of being independent. 70 years is a long time and the country has come a long way since 15th August 1947. From being a poverty-stricken nation holding on desperately to its rich culture to sustain, to being one of the super powers of the world today, She has seen pretty much everything. More than a couple of wars and an intermittent pseudo-war both at the border and within during these years have put her at constant risk. But She continues to strive ahead. There are mistakes being made, there are battles being lost but then she is only 70 years. Isn’t it too young for a country to be perfect?

Menstrual Leave- Far from reality....or Not?


Menstruation has been a private and personal subject even within the family. With the introduction of this policy, it has suddenly become a topic of public attention. But are all discussions in favour of the argument?
