6 Things only a Travel Lover Will Understand

Ever felt that rush while packing for a trip to some new place?
Only travelers and those who love travel can really understand the true joy and art of travelling. Here are 10 things that only people who love exploring new places can understand:-

1. You know the world map quite well:-

It has never been a problem to point out places in the map for you. This is mainly because, in most of your free time you keep surveying places you could go to in the future.

2. You've mastered the art of packing:-

Tips and tricks to carry light luggage and how? You've got it all. Its natural for you to finish packing your travel things way before others have even started.

3. Its rare you get to meet like-minded travel lovers:-

Not all the people you socialize with will get this passion of yours for travelling. But that hasn't ever kept you from exploring new places, just for the fun and sheer adventure. 

4.Its just you out there, making memories for a lifetime:-

Travelling is a fresh breath of life to you. Nothing seems like a problem, if only you can travel. Meeting new people in new places, trying their cuisine and conversing with them has an out of the world charm to it.

5. Travelling with someone makes it even more special:-

If you've got a travel buddy or friends who are as crazy and outgoing as you, you've got it all. They will never let you down when it comes to an adventure. Every journey with them is another bunch of funny tales you share at the dinner table.

6. Saving money for the next trip:-

You're always saving money for the next trip you can go on. There's no doubt that you have that travel fund box tucked under your bed or behind your clothing shelf, just kept out of sight. Its like crack to you and you'd rather live out of a suitcase, than not travel at all.

There's a whole world out there. You can never really run out of places to travel. Having new adventures every time you step out is a rare talent and being able to do so with others is even more difficult. Living out of a suitcase or a backpack can be pretty challenging at times. But nothing can ever be compared to the pure ecstasy of seeing a new place with your own eyes or having reached a destination you've planned for weeks.

6 Confessions of a Coffeeholic

The fresh scent of coffee, wafting in the air as soon as you open the can of beans/powder is one of the great ways to start any day, in my not so humble opinion. It takes time to master the art of coffee making, especially when it comes to that particular flavor, which you prefer and that too early in the morning, every single morning.

My obsession for coffee began while I was studying in the higher grades, trying to keep up during exam times to study late into the night (because that is when we ACTUALLY study, no matter what the experts ask us to do). There are so many different kinds of beans out there, combinations of which can lead to an even interesting and sometimes not so exciting flavors. My point is, you need to try it to know it. 
I am a die hard coffee lover and here are my confessions:
1. One cup a day is never enough:
I'm sure this stands true for every coffee drinker out there. How can simply one cup of that steaming, bubbling, aromatic beverage, ever be enough? One…

How to Groom a Groom Classes (Part1)

Ethics classes at Loreto college, in the third year, are different.

Quite... different...

As a young lady, the extent of your education or skill set should not depend upon how well you can cook "butter chicken" or how nicely you drape your saree.

To be honest, I can't do either very well.

But the bottom line is that I'm willing to learn all of that, for my sake and not for the purpose of bagging the next best groom on an online match-making website.


Gender based qualifications required for marriage: Sister (our principal), started class by reciting a few posts put up on a certain match making website.

Interestingly...the guy's resume would go something like this...."Tall banker/engineer/doctor/etc. earning --- of 40 years, coming from well educated Brahmin/Kshatriya family. Looking for fair complexioned, 5'4" or taller girl between ages 20-30, coming from good Brahmin family."



And vice versa for the prospective bride's ad.

Therefore... In …

Little Things

Have you ever wondered exactly what makes your mornings good or your sleep a peaceful one? Why a small text can make your day or how an old friend can bring out your smile? What makes you happy and why do you need those regular encouragements from people that matter (or sometimes even form those who apparently do not)?
To start making sense, I would now have to narrate to you this one particular experience that lead me to think on this matter for a relatively longer period of time...
The Grumpy Walker: Yeah, that's me. For my dear readers, here I am going to specify that when I'm in one of those moods, I prefer a walk. So a few days back when I was upset about some or the other completely obscene matter, I'd chosen to walk it off on the streets of Gariahat Market, just because. The vendors shouting out new offers along with the regular crowds didn't seem to be helpful either.  As I headed down towards main market from Golpark, I got slowed down due to the early mornin…
