To all my Readers, PRs, Blogger friends & Editors… What I really want to do is tell you how I feel about you after 4 years of blogging!

I am writing my 200th+ post and my blog turned 4 just day before yesterday. And like an awestruck mum I kept staring at my baby thinking ‘where did all … Read More To all my Readers, PRs, Blogger friends & Editors… What I really want to do is tell you how I feel about you after 4 years of blogging!

I have grown up believing in romance. Believing that all romances culminated themselves on snow-clad Swiss Alps or running down the hill slope in a tiny Swiss Village. Courtesy, … Read More RIP Yash Chopra | Romancing In Dreams & In The Alps
