Hola! I’m Saloni Das. I’m only 28 yrs young and from Kolkata. Born into a Bengali family, I am an Aries woman who loves to eat and dreams of travelling the entire world (some day)!
YOU DO YOU & HOW!
When I think “Happy”, I think
Netflix, snacks & chocolates
myhoogah.. in 3 words
Hot tea, bringing a smile on my loved one’s face & rains
My gratitude jar thanks
My family & friends
Coz happiness is… childhood memories
Playing with my grandmother (who has left for heavenly abode now).
My warm fuzzy, food memory
It was last year, when four of our closest friends went for a quiet dinner after skipping a party at Sheraton.
Thank you, my speed dial peeps!
Shreya, Moinak, Agnibesh, Dipsha & Sahar
Thank you, for this unforgettable act of kindness!
I forgot to carry my wallet once. I offered the conductor my watch. Instead, he sweetly declined and let me travel without a ticket (good people do exist!)
Happiest when doing this with my fam!
It has to be all the Bengali traditions that we celebrate together as a family

My fav memory with my grandparents
Visiting them at my hometown, cooking and chatting with them. 🙂
Best advice ever, period!
Never settle for anything less. Be kind, always!
I’m quirky & I love it
I randomly tend to shift from one topic to another (which most often, has no correlation at all :D)
My simple joys..
Tea, home garden & sunshine
An all-time guilty pleasure
Chips & chocolates
When I feel low..
When things don’t go as per the plan
I’ve got only 10 years to live. How will I live it?
Try out the best dishes at both local shops and restaurants; travelling the world without any fear & clicking beautiful nature pictures
If my life was a book, it’d be called
Through darkness & sunshine
I’m learning something new
Pasta in white sauce
The most spontaneous me, so far!
Pretending to be my mom over the phone
Dear 15-year-old self..
It’s okay to have failures. Never give up on yourself
Dear 60-year-old self..
You are young at heart. Always!
An all-time favourite quote

Like the Flowing River by Paulo Coelho
My all-time favourite movie

My all-time favourite game
Not a game person
My all-time favourite fairytale

FINDING HOOGAH DURING COVID
The biggest lesson I learnt
Not everything is in our control, so let’s wait and watch
An unexpected happy lockdown outcome
My culinary skills
Found it tough to deal with
Staying without a job for straight 3 months
A new lockdown skill
Trying the Mandala art therapy
During lockdown, I find my pockets of hoogah
By taking each day as it comes
Let’s beat Covid together!
Times are tougher than we think, hang in there! There is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Try out new things every day, have a goal of learning something new and if possible change your schedule every now and then to beat the monotony of lock down life.
