“Happy Deepavali”, says Little India!

Deepavali or Diwali is a Hindu festival which celebrates the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. It’s probably the most enthusiastically celebrated festival in my home country, India; however, I had no idea that it is a popular one even in Singapore.

Have you ever felt this way?

I love travelling alone. It gives me a soft adrenaline rush. You know, when you have to just take care of your own self? When there’s nobody complaining about the long walk? When you can sit somewhere and refuse to get up till you want? That! It was getting too much of academics with the ...

“Dude, How Did You Get in Google’s Office?”

The Arrival of the Exchange

“How did this day come so fast!” exclaimed my Mom, stuffing the backpack with my favorite snacks. After a long freshman year in the United States, I had just returned to my home in India for vacations and now (blame my “exploration tendencies”), it was already time to leave for a whole new study abroad ...
