  • Women take up Facebook-commerce

    It was a surprise get-together where everyone was asked to wear dark blue saris.

  • Before midnight strikes

    Even if the statement is now a cliché, the energy behind the words remain youthful as ever. Every single stage of our life has its own beauty, however late teens and early twenties have their own distinct sense of unbridled excitement, nervous anticipation and colourful fervour.

  • What's on your bucket list?

    Shall I dare visit social media during the upcoming Qurbani Eid? I'd rather not. You see, my 'friends list' is quite diverse, which is not necessarily a good thing.

  • Eid without loved ones

    But it is at times like these when some people are reminded of what's missing the most in their lives— their loved ones, reminding them of Eids bygone and of better, simpler times.
