Cooking with Le Creuset | Aditya Bal demonstrates to GurgaonMoms

Just the other day, I was watching Aditya Bal on one of his T.V. programmes, turning an ordinary dish into an extraordinary feat with his lovely, flowing account of the whole affair, which made me fall instantly in love with the final product. With this, he literally pushed me into the kitchen to rustle up my version of the same. Period. The same afternoon, Subhashini’ s call stirred me from my heavenly siesta and sooner than I knew, the heavy eyed langour gave way to wide eyed  cheer. Guess what, she asked me if I could write for this event...

In Conversation with Preeti Shenoy | A GurgaonMom’s Book Club Event

On a smoggy December morning, GurgaonMoms organized a meetup at the beautiful poolside terrace bar, Vibe, at Hilton Garden Inn with “India’s only woman writer in the highest selling league”, namely, Preeti Shenoy. It’s not diificult to see why she is in that  league. Her books (fiction category) narrate stories of everyday people like you & me who grapple with the same problems you and me face.  Besides, the language she employs to connect with her readers reflects her personality – simple, free flowing and absolutely devoid of pretension. I think the first thing that struck most women in...

Conquer “Picky Eaters and other Meal Time Battles”

Foodhall was filled with glee and camaraderie of the moms who had come to attend Rakhee Vaswani’s cookery workshop cum book launch. The chill of the winter morning gave way to the welcoming warmth of the GurgaonMoms Upasana and Subhashini, whose spirits were infectious . The excitement was palpable as Rakhee entered the hall. With her pleasing personality and affable demeanour, she hardly behaved like a celebrity. She exuded oodles of positivity as she mingled with all of us in there. Having  rightly caught the pulse of the picky eaters, with her extremely hands on book, by the same...

The Modern Gurukul

When the cover photo of GurgaonMom’s Book Club changed to Sonali Bendre’s book launch banner, I immediately checked the banner for details. Reading further I was determined that this will not be one of the events that I will show interest in and never attend due to a full time job, managing a child and, lack of time. After all the book was on parenting, the other reasons why I wanted to go was to meet up moms from this wonderful community called GurgaonMoms. I have always heard them, seen their pictures often but never got a chance to...

We, at GurgaonMoms celebrated the 126th birth anniversary of Chacha Nehru by facilitating a joy ride on the metro for 120 children of the Radiant School.

Meeting Avirook Sen – The Author of Aarushi

“You are a lawyer, will you moderate the discussion we intend to have with Avirook Sen,” asked Upasana in our weekly meeting. I should be able to do that, I thought to myself. I had read the book almost as soon as it was published and had a fairly strong opinion about the case and the book. Reading the book again for this interaction left me with even more questions than the first time around. I prepared myself for a sombre discussion with the author. But the minute he walked into the room, that thought went flying out of...
