A Grandeur Celebration :)

Untraveled Routes

Team Untraveled Routes’ (that’s Ashish & Charu) wishes all the fellow bloggers and avid readers a great year ahead.

Honestly I firmly believe every single day should be welcomed with much fervor and excitement. Every single day is a ‘Happy New Day’!!!

Well, this is officially the first post on the blog for 2017 and really long due, my last post was in November 2016 and other major events kept me away from blogging. But here I am 🙂

After much deliberation I zeroed on sharing the experience of witnessing grandeur decorations of the most significant event in India – August 15th, the Independence Day celebrated in 2016 commemorating the 70th Independence Day.

rast-bhawan-3 Rashtrapati Bhavan is the official home of the ‘President of India’. The incredible architecture that one witnesses is the culmination of imagination of Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. The mansion has a total…

Breakaway Post Of 2016: How A Generation Lost Its Common Culture by Professor Patrick Deneen


[Editor’s Note]

Out of all the articles/news/information mirrored, this was the most incisive by far.

Professor Patrick Deneen speaks at length as to the myriad reasons why the culture is declining and what type of transformation is taking place in society.

If there’s one thing you read today, let it be this, for the concerns shared by Professor Deneen do not only seep into our present state, but will echo into the future, whether we like it or not.

My students are know-nothings. They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent. But their brains are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation. They are the culmination of western civilization, a civilization that has forgotten nearly everything about itself, and as…

How do you deal with haters?’

My friend and I was having our casual talk at the cake house across the street when she suddenly asked me these question. It took me some time to process the deal word because I have come a very long way to face my haters.

People these days are cruel and judgmental. It’s almost cool to pretend that it doesn’t affect us, like we have some kind of armor around us but the truth and fact is it hurts. This stuff really hurts, especially when you have got nothing to do with them YET THEY STILL HATE YOU!!

BUT, here my friends are the core TRUTH of HATERS…..

Haters don’t hate you, they HATE the fact that you are successful, but deny it and express negativity toward you and your accomplishments.

Haters look for the smallest mistake you make and proceed to attack…

As a Man #2


“My mind will not hang from the strings of a puppeteer, nor will it submit to the cries of a shepherd or the whip of a slaver… My mind will reign only over itself, free and clear from the venomous influence of the corrupt”
I recently read a transcript titled “the Melian Dialogue”, based on true events during the Peloponnesian War (431 BC – 402 BC). It features a discussion between representatives of ancient Athenian invaders, and various diplomats of the small island of Melos. The Athenians sort to enslave or destroy the Melians and so sent messengers to discuss some kind of enslavement treaty. Melos, a province that rose out of Sparta many years before, pointed out how the Athenians were wrong in what they were doing (not that Athens cared); the point of the debate was that the people of Melos concluded it was wrong to surrender, even…

Myself and I

I have found myself loving to wear the same hues of colour from head to toe. I real don’t know why but I love *big grin* It is called the monochromatic look


Today I styled a navy blue tank dress with a knee length sky blue blazer and a sky blue shoe and a navy blue bag.

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

Most people would believe that a tank dress is meant for a more casual outing but I tell you adding a blazer  to it would switch it up to a more work appropraite outfitimg_3283img_3252img_3286img_3274img_3231img_3242img_3237
