I am a gypsy. I love traveling. Most new places get me happy…. and I'm addicted to this happiness. It’s like a drug I need every 3-4 months. One shot at travel even if just for 3 days. Most of my friends love the fact that I find ways to travel and places to travel to. Especially when I do so with my girlfriends (without my family) on trips which are becoming a ritual now. Naturally, it’s not uncommon for women to travel in groups these days… Most women who are unattached, looking for a travel companion or looking...Read More

In conversation with Aparna Santhanam, a woman who wears many hats – a sucessful author, dermatologist, mother, wife, and an ardent supporter of social causes. We spoke to Aparna on life after a baby, family holidays, food, and more….. 1. Has Mommyhood changed you? If yes, how?

One ‘aww’ moment/incident with your child When my daughter was nine years old,she was asked to write about a famous figure who truly inspires her.So,naturally I expected she would write about some musician ,politician or some other famous person.She wrote her composition on me and said that “My mother is a very good doctor who is going to be famous!”It was not just an aww moment but has often served as an inspiration to me. 3. One getting on the nerve moment/incident with your child When Sharanya was about seven,she stopped being amenable to suggestions about oiling her hair.I remember,one Sunday morning,she screaming and running around the room,while I chased her with a coconut oil bottle and finally giving up in frustration and flinging the bottle! 4. Favourite Family food with recipe This...Read More
