Trash!? It’s loaded with meaning

Trash?

I live in a place where my definition of “trash” doesn’t work any longer. My definition of “gross” and “ugly” are even starting to suffer under the pressure of conflicting views. I’ve written elsewhere about ethnocentrism, proving that I’m at least AWARE of the tendency to view things inaccurately due to ignorance of local…

ONE-ON-ONE CREATIVE WRITING CLASSES!

Hello to all you budding creative writing geniuses! 

 

In receiving feedback on the personal writing goals of interested parties, I've come to the conclusion that there is a flaw in the current setup of the course. While group courses are nice because we're able to learn from one another, it seems each of you has specific goals and individual starting points, which leads me to believe that one-on-one courses will be more beneficial.
 
 
That,…

Chowing Down in Chandni Chowk

Way back in the day, Shah Jehan (of Taj Mahal fame) had a beautiful daughter (amongst other, less beautiful daughters) who built herself a huge, sprawling bazaar called Chandni Chowk, where she could shop to her heart's content.

 

Today, this market is insane. I have a friend who got three full-body tiger costumes there.

 

Part of Old Delhi, it's a world apart from New Delhi's wider, more green avenues. It is the smell of…

II-II Tango | A New Latin Sizzle in Hauz Khas Village

 

With all the new, adorable restaurants cozying up like rapidly replicating bunnies in Hauz Khas Village, it's not altogether unlikely that you might climb a tucked-away set of bright yellow stairs and end up in an emerging Latin American restaurant. But, when I did, it was a pleasant surprise…
