Shubho Noboborsho to all my Bengalis and Happy Bengali New Year to everyone!!  How awesome is it that we get another New Year’s? It’s like getting another chance to start over. So if you haven’t been good about keeping your resolutions this is your opportunity to start fresh at least that’s what I’m doing. Pohela…

To My Star Crossed Love

Would you believe me if I told you I stared at my laptop screen for over 30 minutes contemplating where to start? I had one of those nights where you choose to make my thoughts, and my mind your home even if I didn’t invite you. I hope you know my memory loves you. It…

Good Girls Love Bad Boys

As you grow older you learn more about yourself. Everything from what you like, what you don’t like, what ticks you off, weird quirks, good and bad habits. Well something I feel like most women have a common bad habit: falling for the bad boy or the man with (excuse my French) asshole tendencies. Don’t be fooled,…

Adventure of a Lifetime

So my week started out by me getting sick, fun I know. I think it’s God’s way of telling me to slow the heck down and relax. My weekend however, was very eventful. The funny thing is Saturday night I was sitting in my PJ’s and all I had planned was to watch La La…

For The Love Of Fashion

Everyone has something that they’ve loved to do or an interest since childhood. I fell in love with fashion so long ago I can’t quite pinpoint what was my moment. Instead of watching Disney Channel shows all the time, I watched fashion shows and What Not to Wear. I was so obsessed with the fact…

Not My Cup Of Coffee

Growing up I’ve always found that I don’t quite fit a mold or clique. My interests are all over the board and I’ve always enjoyed the company of people from all walks of life. I honestly think it brings new perspectives, opinions, and hobbies and helps you understand how different each of our lives are….

Turn The Page

The picture above was taken four years ago. When I look at the girl in that picture and think about where and who I am now it just amazes me how much has changed. Do you ever do that? Look back at old pictures and think about where you were, who you were and what…

Spring Clean Your Life

As the weather is getting warmer, the sun is shining brighter, nights are getting lighter and April is right around the corner and you’re probably getting the annual urge to have a good ole spring cleaning. I know I definitely do. I welcomed this beautiful season by not only decluttering my home but by getting…

This Ain’t My First Rodeo

Aside the fact that both my little brother and my mother’s birthdays fall in March, this month in Houston is dedicated to the Rodeo. From the expansive livestock show with more than 30,000 livestock and horse show entries, to the exciting rodeo championships, to the nightly entertainment where stars grace the stage and get us…

Your Fave Bengali On Thought Catalog

Hey Y’all, Aside from it being Rodeo season and Luke Bryan coming into town, I have had a lot of reason to be giddy. One is all the support from everyone taking out their time to read my posts and giving me feedback, it really means a lot. Second, a writing piece I submitted to…

Made Out of Brown Sugar, Honey & Gold

As Spring is approaching, well more like summer here in Houston, you can already see all the “brown” also known as Desi/South Asians preparing for hibernation until winter comes around. Both males and females fear the sun like the apocalypse. It’s that time of the year where Bengali Aunties give you random skin brightening remedies…
