Saanya Gulati's Blog, Social Media Day

With days dedicated to each member of the family – fathers, mothers, sibling, and even different food groups – pancakes, chocolate, and sushi – it was only a matter of time before social media had its own day. After all, how else would we know about these days if not through social media? https://www.instagram.com/p/BBk64iGN4fo/?taken-by=bombaydelhigirl As a scholar of media and…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, #YouthVotes Brexit Debate

I have seldom pondered about the fact that it is a privilege to understand politics. Yet, somehow it ended up being my parting thought from a debate that was intended to discuss the implications of Brexit for the youth.<center><iframe width="670" height="377" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bI4QeQCGzTc?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></center> The question is simple, even Shakespearean – to leave, or not to leave?

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…

It’s 9 AM.

It’s 9:30 AM.…

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…
