Welcome and thanks for dropping by 🙂
This blog has gone through multiple identity shifts since I first started it in 2008. It used to be mostly home to my articles and interviews on books, art and movies while I was a reporter for The Hindu’s Metroplus city supplement in Chennai. Then, it was mostly home to my personal ramblings on motherhood, and life in the crazy city formerly known as Madras.
Now, there’s been yet another shift — both geographically and content-wise. I moved to Dubai last year– back to being Gulfie! — and I’m also in the process of redesigning the site so that I can showcase my music and my upcoming novel(s), while retaining the all the work I’ve published in past decade. .
I suppose it’ll go through many more shifts in the years to come as my priorities and obsessions keep changing. But it will remain my little corner of the web, home to my writing and reflections on life. Do keep reading! 🙂
