Our family driver, Minhaj is a simple, humorous, guy. He is a family man with two young daughters in school and a son who’s now in college. He’s very decent with no professional shortcomings apart from his quintessentially Hyderabadi nature. By this I mean of course that he’s pretty chill and laid back in most […]

Introduction – Pros and cons of having cats My wife and I definitely wanted kittens since we couldn’t leave a dog puppy at home while we were both at work or out. A lot of our friends have kittens and cats and after all our research, the pros of having cats as pets are as […]

I’d been here once with some friends earlier. We were hungover after a late night out and felt like a good strong English breakfast. Long story short, the breakfast was terrible here to the extent that they didn’t even have fresh fruit juice. Just the canned stuff. Moving on, another friend of mine who’s a […]

Now Zen’s been around for a while, really it has. Not since T=0 but long. It’s decent enough to take a family, guests, maybe a snobbish girl, you catch my drift. Coin weilding students might want to give it a second thought as it might be out of your budget. So when you walk into […]

The commonwealth games are on in the city, so there’s gunmen everywhere. Hotel Janpath was no exception either. I see this sign for Swagath ever so often about coastal sea […]

An office colleague and friend decided to take us to the Lodi restaurant, and boy was I pleased with it. Though I didn’t get enough time to take it all in that one time, I had a wonderful time there. The restaurants a pretty unique place, it’s along the periphery of Lodhi Garden, which in […]
