“Indulge” yourselves

(Revised on Dec 15th, 2014)

For the past month I’ve been interning at Indulge magazine Bangalore (The New Indian Express), thanks to my lovely friend R, who works there. It’s one of those well-oiled teams that ensures that everyone gets their bit to write and there’s so much to learn from them. Here’s a small snapshot of the wonderful experiences I had while working there:

1. Just Push RESET

I definitely indulged in my girly side while writing up these two “It Lists” for the fashion-forward. One of those tasks that makes you remember why you secretly trawl those fashion blogs.

My Love-Letter to Mumbai

 

An evening at Juhu Chowpatty beach reminds you of how little it takes to find joy in life.

My affair with Mumbai begins the minute I set foot into the train station. The smell of vada pav and samosas mingled with the sweat of a hundred thousand people rushing to work, from work, to home, from home, to a client, from a client.

Every city is depressing. But none smell of hope as much as Mumbai does.

Only in Mumbai can I meet a hardcore business boy, an insightful writer, a magazine girl, an engineer for a top telecom company, a freelance artist, a student and another intern, each with the same opinion of the place, the same thirst for the city.
