Over & Out

So 2015 was quite uneventful & drab but even then it has its share of personal achievements that I can think of. Clicking pictures and writing took a back seat, I chose to soak it all in rather than look through the viewfinder that often.
I traveled and how. A personal decision became a mission and one that was well achieved. Where all did I go? Amsterdam, Delhi (Thrice), Chennai (Twice), Goa, Srinagar - Gulmarg, Pondicherry. Can't wait to better this in 2016. Cooked to save a life and more. Chicken curries and rice and a tad bit more. I want to move onto making cocktails now.Traveled with my sibling. While I have traveled with friends, family & cousins I have never traveled with her alone.Went to Kashmir. The place was home once - as my grand mom tells me & exactly how she described it from memory.Two of my closest friends got married. One after over 12 years of courtship. True love exists.Attend a Telugu wedding - check.Aced all my tests - blood tests of some 8 types…
