Friends – The Family I’ll Always Choose Over Romance

There is little in this world that friendship didn’t give me. My friends stood by me when the world refused to, sometimes even when my family didn’t know how. They understood my bits and showed me the way. Romantic love can’t come close to what friendships offer. It isn’t an exchange; you give your heart expecting nothing. What’s more beautiful than that? Here’s to friends who kept their spine and stood by me when no one else did. You’re the family I choose, chose and will forever keep. We aren’t bonded by some kind of weird obligation, you’re completely and…Continue Reading

19 Things You Know To Be True If You Have A Younger Brother

Well, well. My mother tells me of a childhood instance when she’d taken my brother and me to a photo studio to have us clicked in traditional attire. I happened to glare at the photographer because he kept making my baby brother cry by constantly repositioning him for the perfect frame. (There is actually a photograph of me glaring at the guy behind the camera as proof.) I am the elder sister in our equation. My brother is two years younger to me and our graph of bonding, over the years, shows a definite hike. Living with a younger sibling…Continue Reading

21 Powerful Affirmations That Will Connect You To Your BEST Self

“An affirmation is a phrase that reinforces positive beliefs or behaviors. The best ones are a statement of what we want and are phrased in the present moment” – Gala Darling, Radical Self Love The words we speak create our reality, so said some great human some long, long time ago. And what they said, in my experience, is truly bang on! It is not only the words we tell each other, but the words we tell ourselves that determine the quality of our lives.

15 Beautiful Life Lessons We Can All Learn From Children

When we were kids, the world was our oyster. We never believed otherwise and life seemed to roll out like it was striving to always keep us smiling. We’d fall, get bruised, cry a bit…and the next thing we knew, there was a pretty little bug on the grass and we were watching it with awe. We’d roll over in our sleep, snooze like all the freedom was ours (which it is even now, actually) and burp without asking for permission. There’d be loud farts without embarrassment, and there’d be anger shown with complete honesty. There was no hiding. Most…Continue Reading

Hello, hello. When we think of turning 25, the heartbeat quickens and we may start to sweat a wee bit because, hey, it’s this “no-going-back” year. The year when you OFFICIALLY finish a quarter of a frigging century on this planet! God, that’s a LOOOONG time. And since these heavy, heavy numericals demand some serious goal-completion, we’re more than driven to make sure we don’t feel completely useless by the time we meet our 25th birthday. Marriage, my friend, isn’t even a consideration. Let’s happily dump that in the bin and look at 25 of these super-essential challenges we really…Continue Reading

How My Worst Breakup Taught Me Life’s Most Important Lessons

I won’t lie. I wouldn’t want to relive the first half of 2016. It was the worst blow my heart’s taken in a long time, but to be honest if I was given a choice to erase that year out of my existence, I wouldn’t. Because no matter how messed up the first half of it had been, it was one of my favorite years in the almost-30 stint I am heading towards. I am assuming we’ve all been through a breakup that’s opened a gap within the center of our chests with constant pain spilling out. And mine was…Continue Reading

10 Darkest F.R.I.E.N.D.S Fan Theories That’ll Make Every Fan Think Hard

It’s been 12 years since the last episode of Friends aired and about 12 minutes since I sang ‘Smelly Cat’ and ‘I’ll be there for you’ (and mind you, I clapped exactly 4 times throughout the sequence). After multiple failed attempts to achieve the state of “Unagi”, countless efforts to know the exact age of characters throughout the seasons and hours of pondering whether Ross and Rachel were actually on a break, I stumbled upon the dark side of the Internet and got my hands dirty with some extremely dark and depressing Friends Fan theories that gave me the creeps.…Continue Reading

25 Chandler Bing Moments That’ll Make You Say “That’s SO ME”

“Could we be any more Chandler?” Well, if you have watched the series you would know how much one can relate to Chandler Bing, and that is because the character by him was portrayed so damn well. Keeping aside the moments where he gave us some unrealistic expectations about a loving husband, we couldn’t be happier to realize that we were Chandler on so many levels. Chandler Bing is that iconic character from “Friends” who has perfectly timed sarcasm and an honest opinion about himself. Being a hardcore Friends fan, I could discuss his hilarious jokes all day, but here…Continue Reading

Okay, so if you clicked the link and you are here, you are probably a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan. So I don’t need to go on and on about how great the show is. I mean, the show has been on reruns across the globe, on different TV networks, since it ended in 2005. And it still has better viewership than many shows that are still on air! If that doesn’t scream QUALITY, I don’t know what will! So in India, Comedy Central has been doing the rerun for a while now. Although they continuously, unnecessarily self-censor the hell out of that…Continue Reading
