Must Watch: House of Cards Season 5 Premiere

Does politics intrigue you? I bet it does! Whether you try  to be a party neutral person or an extremist, politics is an integral part of life. It governs not only our country and the world but our lives in fact. And when politics is brought on the screen, it becomes all the more mind boggling!
Everyone loves a political drama. And when the drama involves none other than the first country of the world: United States, we become bound to leave everything behind to savour it. Among all the political dramas I have watched so far, House of Cards happens to be my favourite. And tomorrow seems to be lucky for me as well as all the HOC fans out there, as a brand new season is premiering!
Frank Underwood is coming to India with the television premiere of House Of Cards Season 5 on Saturday, 3rd June, 5 PM onwards, only on Zee CafĂ©!”
House of Cards has been baffling right from the beginning. The previous four seasons have been woven with suspense, treachery and nerve wrecking drama.

Beach Vacation Essentials

It's a no secret how much beach lovers me and my partner are. We narrow down a destination only when it has sufficient picturesque sea beaches. We love basking in the sun. Although we belong to the land of eternal Sunshine India, a little preparation for a sunny getaway never hurts. This year I don't know when we would be able to travel to an exotic destination. But one thing s for sure. We would definitely go somewhere near the water. And for that, I have been preparing a wish list as to what all to pack for our next beach vacay.
There are so many sites that sell what you want. However getting the best deal is tough.I had been searching for the best bang for my buck when I stumbled across This website provides you almost every possible product under the sun and at very competitive prices! So look no more, start shopping now!
Here are the things that I am going to order.

Apart from the typical swimwear, flip flops, sunscreen and hats, there are a few more things that…


I am married for the past six and half years. And yes, I had a love marriage. Love is true sense. I am from Varanasi whose studies have been in Lucknow. While I married a Bengali girl who is a total Delhiite. We did not fight the society although. Our parents readily agreed to our alliance. She is my first love. And last. But I had never planned to weave my life like this. When I was in medical college, I was dead serious about my studies. No girls for me. Its not that my parents had forbidden me to do so, it was a self imposed rule. So I was totally into those thick books with occasional dollops of cricket. However there was a girl with whom I was very good friends with. In King George Medical College, where I did my MBBS, its a joke that 90% girls are pretty; 10% are from KGMC. So you can understand how 'hot' my female batchmates were. Now just around our university, there were lots of general colleges which had really happening girls. Fortunately, those hot girls us…

A monochrome Spring

I now handover this blog to bonafide fashionista Docdivatraveller to throw some light on spring trends!
Hola girls! Spring/Summer is here. Its time for a fresh wardrobe revamp. What comes to your mind when you think of spring? I bet its bright colours and florals. However if you have watched the movie 'The Devil wears Prada' then you must have been moved by Miranda Priestly's famous words: Florals for spring, how groundbreaking! Now that is some food for thought. Why go with the crowd with florals? Why not create some statement with a different style altogether?
Its hard to find 'groundbreaking' trends during spring in the stores. As everyone is selling bright colours and florals. Thankfully I bumped across FashionMia where I found some really interesting designs and colours. By something out of the box I don't mean dark /jewel tones or some gothic prints. Florals are still welcome but with a twist. Like black flowers. Its still floral but not pink or orange bloo…

Unleashing the 'Jugaadu' in me in Santorini!

Broadly, travelers or tourists rather can be divided into two main categories. The vacationers and the real travelers. A vacationer looks for luxury at every corner. While a true traveler loves to navigate himself…whether be on foot or on a two wheeler. He does not believe in taking cabs or looking for comfort. I belong to the latter category.

Last to last year I went to Greece with my wife. Apart from Athens, we were supposed to explore two islands: Paros and Santorini. Paros is rather large while Santorini is small. However our itinerary was elsewise. We were just for a single day in Paros while we had 3 days in Santorini. And we had planned to explore both the islands on a two wheeler.

We had gone to Greece during its economic meltdown and I had underestimated their law. When I went to hire a scooty in Paros, they rejected me at first. Reason? My indecipherable driving license. Yes, my license was archaic. I had got it made during college time and at that period driving licenses wer…
