There's no way to avoid saying this. Representation of Pakistan is minimal in books that are actually readable and not reference books. When there are stories from and about Pakistan they are limited to subjects like post-terrorism stories and portraying how difficult life is. While these stories are all genuine, there is also a need… Continue reading Book Review: Upstairs Wife by Rafia Zakaria
Here's to summer 2019..its begun! Last year was all about understanding what I enjoy most outside of academics. It turned out having a hobby like knitting and getting back into reading for pleasure and then talking about it on my blog were a few things that bring me a lot of joy.

If I am reading something dense and literary on paper, I choose something light and comedic for my Kindle.
I've said this in a previous post that I found knitting a great self-taught hobby with tonnes of room to improve.

Over the past few months, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting back on the saddle - reading chair, in this case. And part of that pursuit has been… Continue reading Kindle: a new experience in reading

After seeing it in bookstores, airport stores and news stands countless times, this one held my attention at Indigo Bookstore in the 2 for $15 paperback shelf. I was looking for something with strong female characters, a chic setting and yet a gripping storyline and Falling… Continue reading Book Review: Danielle Steel’s “Fall from Grace”
I recommend this book to every young woman and man, even if they are not interested in public service, as a guide on how to get things done and stick it out at the workplace.
I have a not-so-great morning routine. I wake up stumbling out of my bed and have just enough time to get dressed, grab my stuff and a quick breakfast (that will be eaten in the office). This kind of rushed morning takes a toll on small things we must do that matter. Inspiration and processOne… Continue reading Morning water therapy
