The quarter life crisis is a period of intense soul searching and stress ranging from twenties to thirties, in which a person begins to feel doubtful about their own lives, brought on by the stress of becoming an adult.In our culture, there is intense pressure to be in a flourishing career by your mid-twenties, to be married to the ‘right’ girl or guy and be well on the way to be fulfilling family and society’s expectations.Then there is the comparison trap which is never ending.Societal pressure is too intense for youngsters to cope up with.Depression, frustration, detachment, fear of failure, feeling of being stuck in a rut, escapism are common symptoms of people suffering from Quarter Life Crisis.

Christmas Special Post, things I am grateful for
A year back I wrote this post titled “Fight Like A Girl” when I got very moved by a huffington post article .A soul stirring article here inspired me to write this blog post.I am been working on this post since several days but haven’t found it complete till this point.Thinking of the trauma and stress both physical and emotional that they have to go through sends a chill down my spine.90% of women after having been diagnosed with non-metastatic forms of breast cancer survive but the struggle is quite expensive , its a painful journey and like every war it leaves you with scars.Women fighting this battle alone need a lot of emotional support and confidence to come back to their usual self. Its an extremely sensitive topic to write on and haven’t seen personal instances of people suffering and surviving from breast cancer.It’s so troubling to know that breast cancer affects 1/8 women all around the world.

Is it the stress from our hectic […]

Above I am wearing an embroidered white kurta with a Handloom Patterned Indian jacket panel work. I got this while thrift shopping in Central Delhi, Janpath.I had been meaning to write this post for quite some time but for some reason I kept forgetting.I have been to Delhi quite a few times as its near my home and the city and the capital of India is exquisite and so colourful.It has a lot to offer when it comes to food, fashion and sightseeing. So one of my close friends from college is getting married in Delhi.Besides the wedding I also had some sightseeing and food safari on my mind.So here is how I organised my travel essentials and planned my time.Key to a happy trip is effective planning and packing light.So all I have is a backpack and a small trolley as luggage.I would usually limit to a rucksack but then because there is a Indian engagement it can never be minimalistic.I also took a print out of the Delhi Metro for ease of travel […]
