For wanderlusters around the globe , travel right now is a future possibility living in the reality of a throwback moment. Facebook groups and Instagram are thriving with images of trips taken, moments that were forgotten and destinations yet to discover. In looking through lovely images of trips to Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Prague, I cannot help but linger on some bright moments of my old hometown, Hollywood. Few people know it bu...

2020 has been a game changer pretty much since it began. No sooner did we ring in the New Year’s when rumors turned into reality and Covid-19 turned the world upside down with true threat of life and death in the balance.  Up till January 2020, the “sharing economy” was one of the most profitable trends that emerged from the past 10 years with companies like Airbnb, Lyft, Uber, Hubble, Ola, and Lime (an electric scooter sharing ser...

A cup of tea is therapeutic. Cultures around the world have embraced different forms of tea to be part of their social culture and daily diet. What would a visit to London be without having a classic afternoon tea where black teas play an integral role in the ceremonial "high tea" service. Thai iced tea, a global hit, is also created using strongly brewed black tea. This is then infused with flavors such as cardamom, star anise and...

2020 has been a year no one has bargained for causing many of us to think about life and what it means. I am so very honored to have had three articles published by Thrive Global on the news of the moment and my reflections from South Asia. I  invite you to read them:

Super Bowl Sunday has passed... the world witnessed the superb moves of the 49ers and  the Chiefs and the records they broke and probably enjoyed some fun with family and friends. For me, the Super Bowl represents a showcase of the most innovative, memorable, some not so memorable, attempts to capture the attention of every eyeball compressed  in a 1:30 or less experience. The Chief's victory after 50 years was momentous and thrill...

January 2020 has launched a new decade full of unexpected twists and turns having a rippling impact on the global stage.   If the impeachment trials in Washington were not enough to send the world reeling, January 9th launched days of royal turmoil with the Instagram announcement on Sussex Royal from Prince Harry and Meghan that they would like to find a financial and otherwise independent life from the thousand year old British mo...

I recently read a truly intriguing social media post where someone thanked all the naysayers in their life for not believing in them and how this actually propelled them to places they never would have reached without it. It got me thinking as most social media posts you see are either about inspirational, positive moments that have pivoted them in a meaningful direction or a "Debbie Downer" moment where they rant about how unfair...

Good advertising does not just circulate information. It penetrates the public mind with desires and belief.

I fell in love with the world of brand marketing because when it is perfectly done it gives you a high.

You feel exalted, excited, and tingly all at the same time.

I worked in Santa Monica, Ca when the first iPhone came out.

The excitement was tangible in the air, there were those of stuck at work, and the lucky ones...

Some like it salty, some like it sweet. Increasing number of studies talk about the highly addictive qualities of sugar or overly salty processed foods. Lifestyle articles and health books quote disastrous results with too much sugar in your diet like type A diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and other complaints. But ...I would like to look at sugar and sweets as a part of our history, a lifestyle and I was heartened to read a rece...

There is something universal about the love for chocolate. Whether it be the Easter basket full of chocolate bunnies you discover as a child or a birthday gift from friends and family, the chocolate is a global and dependable hit. 

Living in South Asia for the past years, specifically in India, I see that chocolate offerings, incarnations and possibilities have multiplied each year. As a child living between the US and India, t...
