Saanya Gulati's Blog, Delhi Gymkhana Incident

There are two things that every Indian misses when they live overseas: the food, and their domestic help. I recall an alumnus from the LSE narrating her decision to return to India after graduating – “I missed my Lakshmi Didi and Ramu Bhaiya too much.” Didi and bhaiya are the Hindi words for elder sister and brother, but they are often used…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Coffee Tales

I’m a big fan of London’s café culture, but I have one quibble: the coffee is never hot enough. If you’re one of those people who actually wait for their coffee to cool down, you probably think I’m crazy. I’m well aware of it. I am accustomed to quizzical looks from Baristas, and friends who make the mistake of offering…

Saanya Gulati's Blog - Millennial Syndrome

The Media’s Fascination With The Millennial Syndrome Much has been said about the millennial: an individual reaching young adulthood around the year 2000 (If you didn't catch get the Mean Girls reference from the title, there's a chance you may not be one). The description of millennials that you may be more familiar with, however, is ‘lazy, entitled, narcissists who still live with…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, #GlobalGulatis

Now that the mishmash of media theories, otherwise referred to as exams, is behind me, I can finally get down to documenting the culinary adventures that constituted the last few weeks, otherwise known as food blogging. Plus with the family in town, you can bet that gluttony was in full swing. In case you’re wondering why my folks so strategically picked the week…

Saanya Gulati's April Fools Day Blog Post

There's nothing like an entire day dedicated of pranks to remind you that it's the beginning of a new month. And in my case, the end of my internship.   My social media timeline woke up to a flood of feeds that lamented the utter failure that Bollywood’s latest Ki and Ka was.   Of course, that was hardly a surprise…

The Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race is a timeless tradition in London, so watching it is a quintessentially London activity to engage in. Excitement levels were high until the weather forecast expected hailstorms all day and India made it to the Quarter Finals in the cricket world cup. If there’s any rivalry that compares to the Ox-bridge rowing one, it’s the India-Australia cricket…

It’s that time of year when your calendar tells you it’s spring but your body tells you it’s still winter. The good news is that the days aren’t dreadfully short, which is finally motivating me to get back to my early-bird ways. Speaking of birds, look who paid a visit to my window-sill this morning. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDDA0BZt4dB/?taken-by=bombaydelhigirl I’m writing this on…

There are few things that prevent me from getting out of bed for weekend brunch. Even nights spent watching ‘Master of None,’ which was last month's procrastination project. Plus, the weather finally reaching double digits made for a pleasant walk down Westminster Bridge, barring the occasional tourists who give you strange looks for power walking. It doesn’t help that I’m…
