10 Happy Moments of My Life 1. The first time I held my baby sister in my arms.  I was happy I had someone I could bully! 2. The first time I saw the Eiffel Tour twinkle.  There is nothing about Paris that didn’t fascinate me: the wine, the fashion, the culture, the gastronomy and the people (especially the men!) Then first time I saw the Eiffel tour was like a long awaited dream come true! The better part, I sponsored my own trip! 3. When I brought my first puppy home and my life has never been the same! My dogs have taught me to love selflessly and to always look where I put my foot (if I don’t, its usually in dog poo) 4. When I entered Disneyland! The first thing on my bucket list was going to Disneyland since I could probably spell ‘Disneyland’! I was longing to go to the happiest and most magical place on Earth! Going there with the love of my life made this experience even better. 5. When I met my childhood friend after many years over drinks and realized distance didn’t ch

5 Things I Learned in my 20s

I was young, wild and carefree in my 20s and had one motto in life – experience everything at least once in my life with no regret and irrespective of its consequences and repercussions. As I inch closer to turning 30 next year in February, the world went into a lockdown and it gave me ample amount of time for self-reflection, soul-searching and making lifestyle changes to condition my mind as to how I want to shape the next 50yrs of my future life. The following is a list of 5 things/lessons that I learned in my 20s from life:- 1. Restrict your Social Circle You can have a hundred fair-weather friends but once you identify your core set of five to ten people whom I refer to as “permanents”, that’s enough to sustain a happy and fulfilled life. Of course! Lesser the friends, lesser is the drama. Oh! I’m a lucky man, To count on both hands, The ones I love, Some folks just have one, Yeah, others they got none, Stay with me, Let’s just breathe 2. It is okay to FAIL!

If you're running out of date night ideas, then head to one of these places and I'm sure your partner/spouse will have an eventful experience and it's easy on the pocket too. 1) Hakkasan, Bandra When it opened in 2011, it took the city by storm. It's an international Chinese restaurant chain with the highest quality standards when it comes to food, drinks and customer service. The menu is a modern interpretation of authentic Cantonese food. Also, this is where I go for my first dates. Cost : Rs. 2,500 for 2 people (without alcohol) Top dishes : Dumplings, Dimsum platter 2) Roadhouse Bluez, Andheri This is an American influenced dive bar with the ambience of a classic rock pub hosting regular karaoke nights. You can spot me here on Thursday and Saturday nights. Cost : Rs. 2,000 for 2 people (with alcohol) Top dishes : Chef's special prawns wrapped in chicken, free popcorn 3) Leaping Windows, Versova It's one of the few book reading cafes in Bombay

Falling in love, AGAIN!

I’m your regular, average looking guy next door. Well, that is after I have had my share of one-night stands, hook ups, flings and girlfriends during my 20s. My idea of a relationship has always been movies, dinners and sex involving no emotional attachment unless demanded. While I was fooling around with girls, one day I received a call that caught me off guard. My best friend broke the news that she is getting married. My best friend was getting married. Wasn’t I supposed to be happy and ecstatic for her? Instead there was this sinking feeling. I started whimpering, a shudder down my spine and I burst into tears because that very moment it dawned upon me that I’ve been in love with her all this while. 9 long years and I never acknowledged my feelings, and now it was too late to tell her. What followed next were obvious days and weeks of sulking, heavy drinking and a devastating period of sadness. I regretted almost everything and felt like I lost out on the love
