  • While the shift from wide open spaces to a plain brown🚪 might (a)jar some of you, even Doon runs out of picturesque settings when you can’t/don’t (personal responsibility is important!) leave home 🏡 We’re talking about backdrops here people 🖼 Enjoy your Sunday (and also my pun of which I am inordinately proud 🤓). And if you’re up to the effort, drop your best (worst) dad joke down below 👇🏼🙇🏻‍♂️ Edit- ‘Dad Joke’ is an idiom for puns 🚏

  • Social Distancing, Washing Our Hands and Wearing Masks. Every health expert and organisation agrees that these are the anti-Covid basics as we slowly ease off the pause button for society. Wearing a mask in public can literally save lives, and it takes next to no effort. Even a cloth wrapped over your face is better than nothing, but if you’re still looking for one moving forward, here’s a pretty cool option.  The folks over at @kurinsystems have come up with wearable air purifier, called the Atom. Swipe left 👈🏼 to see how it works. I’ll be giving some away, so watch this space guys and #staysafe 🙌🏼🙏🏼

  • It was a good day for photos 🌝 Even though these Sundays aren’t really like the Sundays that have come before, or the ones that will undoubtedly come after, I still hope that all of you manage to unwind and enjoy at least some modicum of peace in these trying and uncertain times. Stay safe guys ❤️

  • When I was in the 2nd grade, my dad went to London for a year to study, and we all followed him shortly after. Me and my sister joined a school there, and mom would pick us up every day, carrying this massive umbrella, because it was mostly cold and often rainy. And one day post school, as we were on our way to pick up some groceries, a teenager yelled a racial slur and threw something at us. It turned out to be a plastic grenade.  My mom took one long look at it, yelled ‘HEY YOU!!! RUKK’ and took off after him. Picture this 5’3 lady with a 4 foot umbrella  and two kids , in a foreign country for the first time, chasing this egregious youth (who was clearly shocked at being given chase) down till he just gave up. And didn’t let him off the hook till he apologised. That’s the lady I’m proud to call my mom.  A Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing moms out there whose awesomeness can’t be put into words, essays or anecdotes ❤️

  • Quarantine and chill has included - Reading more 📚 , spending more time in the 🌲 🌳🌴 and attempting to eat better (which might or might not include eating 3-4 paneer/aloo paranthas daily 🐷). Sure, a haircut or two would’ve been nice, but a shaggy mane is a small price to pay given the present circumstances🤷🏽‍♂️ Wish all of you the best of health, and almost as important, good cheer 🤗❤️#stayhome #quarantineandchill #MessyHairKindaDontCare #TheFabledHalfCandid

  • #tbt to a more uneventful time. Uneventful here is to be read as the absence of a global pandemic, no ensuing unprecedented lockdown, and the ability to see another human and not feel the urge to jump back to a (minimum) distance of 6 to 10 feet 🚧 And if all that wasn’t enough, the Pentagon has today declassified videos of Unidentified Flying Objects. Which here can be read as goddamned aliens 👽 2020 is fast turning into the year where all of Will Smith’s movies came terrifyingly to life, and I’m not really here for it tbh🙅🏽‍♂️ On a more serious note, I sincerely hope all of you are keeping well in these trying times. Hopefully we can move past this quickly, but till then, #stayhome 🙌🏼❤️

  • Oh hi there 🙋🏽‍♂️ If you know anything about me, it’s that this was gonna be a long one 😋 Here goes nothing  Thank you. For showing me that commitment pays off. That love endures. That passion isn’t a fools errand, even if sometimes , everything makes you feel like  it is.  That you don’t always need a green screen or VFX to make magic. That feelings have a depth  that no numbers can measure.  Thank you for all the people, from the co- actors, to the spot dadas, to the guy I accidentally kicked on the butt in a fight scene (true story) and everyone in between. Thank you for the exhaustion, the grumbles, the complaints. Thank you for all the lessons, the good ones, the bad ones, even the harsh ones. Thank you for each and every person who reached out with their love and their time. Thank you for being something I can always hint at, but never fully explain. You will always always be special. #EkDujeKeVaasteTurnsOne #ForRealThisTimeThough #LeaplingBirthday  #LeapDayBaby #BringingOutTheMushSinceTwentySixteen

  • A lot can be, and is, said about today. But ‘We Are Groot’ pretty covers it for this clan 🙌🏼 Pebble makes his debut by keeping to the long standing trading of my furry family acting too pricey for the camera 🙄🤷🏽‍♂️ But I’m pretty sure he sends his love too. Happy Valentine’s Day guys ❤️🤗

  • So here it is, and (just about) within the time limit 🥳 Not exactly Makhna smooth, but this will have to do for now. Trying to keep up with @prateekshettigar ‘s amazing choreography with @ananyadancestoomuch , who nailed it as usual (on short notice at that) 🙏🏼🙏🏼 Peep the battery drain by the end of the video 😂

  • It’s been a long long love affair with the gym. I just couldn’t understand why people couldn’t make it to gym, spend hours working out like I did. Then I started working, and suddenly there weren’t enough hours in a day sometimes. The shoe was on the other foot,and now, being too tired, too busy, too ‘I just don’t feel like it today’ didn’t seem like excuses, they were a reality. For someone who used to plan his whole day around his workout, having to drag myself there was a bewildering feeling. But taking a step back is not always a bad thing, and in retrospect, it’s done me a world of good. Because it made me realise that all the muscles and six packs in the world aren’t worth it if I’m not in love with the process. The process HAS to be worth it. And the good news is that , once again, it is. The love affair is soaring ❤️ PS- Periscope tonight at 10 pm. Come hang out 🥳  #DearDiary #AnOdeToTheGym #GymKeBaareMeinPooriNovelLikhDi #Haanji #MuscleboundAndProud #GymRat #IfYouGetitYouGetIt #LoveTheProcess
