My dear readers,
you must think that I have completely deserted you and this blog! So much upheaval has happened that I haven’t been able to concentrate on my poor blog until now! But, as is traditional, I will end this year with my blog roundup! If you’re interested, this post was done last year to assess the progress of this blog!
Top posts with the most views!
- The giant list of typical American phrases, quotes, and verbiage that you may not know! Well, this one was a monster to research and write, so of course, I’m happy that it has so many views! The post is neatly divided into quotes from movies and sitcoms, everyday phrases, jingles from commercials, and from politics. Do check it out if you haven’t already!
- An Indian American family road trip. A photo-heavy post of our trip to Sequoia National Park, but also an insight into how a typical Indian American family packs for and behaves on a road trip!
- The Indian joint family system. This post pertains to my grandparents’ joint family system in India in the 1940’s-50’s.
- Coldplay and Cultural Appropriation. One of the rare posts I did on hot button topics; specifically, the ColdPlay video and Beyonce’s so-called appropriation of Indian culture.
- My experiences with street harassment (or eve-teasing). And, how I dealt with it.
- 7 tips for Indian American parents visiting India. Trips back to our home country can be invigorating, but as parents, it can also be very stressful!
