My friend Harshika Daryanani wanted to do a story on couples who’re in very different phases of marriage.

There may be very few people like me who started working very late in life. I’m yet to meet one. Though I did try my hand at few things earlier but I was destined to end up here. Here’s something that kept my attention and interest in the last six years.
It’s been an interesting journey when I started from a blog where I would write all that would catch my eye. When did my small blog turn into a branding platform? I’m myself surprised!
It does not happen always that you like everything at an event, feel like picking the whole lot and meet many enterprising people. I am fortunate that way, as I attended one such occasion – Collectors’ Affair – at the awesome Restro Bar Taksim, at Ansal Plaza in New Delhi. Continue reading Collectors’ Affair at Taksim
