About me

I’ve measured out my life in jocund boons.

Eliot was quotidian, even trite, measuring it in mere coffee spoons…
Life is all  about memories,associations ,experiences and above all, the joie de vivre!

Dreamer, food enthusiast,homemaker, mom-of-two and recently turned entrepreneur that’s me!

Born to a littérateur father and a connoisseur and artist Mother, word-love, art-love and food-love have been the core of my existence. My foody husband and teenagers have made my culinary journey fun and fulfilling.In the past, I documented some of my kid raising and hair raising experiences here.

My recipes are learned and inspired  from Ma, family, friends and the great web world.  All my recipes all thoroughly tried,tested and vetted in my kitchen and oven 🙂

Recently, my love for the Jaipur hand-block printed cotton inspired me to launch my fashion label- Jaipuriya. I share glimpses of the story of my journey and a peek into the gorgeous handprited and handwoven fabrics of India. Rooted in the colour of tradition, Jaipuriya features apparel with contemporary styling. Find it all here!
