Something about the beats!..

If I have fallen in love with Pune, I have fallen in love with its hills, its freedom, its festivals. When a festival comes, the markets are busier than ever, the people more pumped up and the streets so beautifully lit! And the most iconic of these celebrations is the Ganpati festival.

Today

  I have better things to do – assignments, errands, the gym and more. There’s always ‘stuff’ to do. And this seems like a bad idea anyway. But you know what? Not today. Today, let’s go and feel the rain. Today there’s no rush to go home when the sun sets. Today, there’s someone to…
