Go Indie | Adopt Don't Shop

I have always had a soft corner for Indian street dogs. Be it little pups with the dreamiest of eyes, or the adult dogs who refuse to grow up, I love all furries out there. No matter how tough their lives have been, Indian street dogs will welcome you with all the warmth in their hearts, they will still carry a sparkle in their eyes. People who can't look beyond the 'street dog”' in them, don't know what they are missing out here!
Here are few of my favourite rescue cases that I have been involved with lately. Even though life has brought them down couple of times, these tough indies refuse to give up! All these beautiful stories are a reminder that every dog deserves a family, a home that they can call their own, a place where they will be adored and looked after, humans that will make sure they never sleep without a meal again.



It isn’t easy being a mother dog on the streets. The one in the above is called Mother.
She had her own budding family, a litter of young pups t…

Good Vibes and Good Food: Cafe JC's

I was wanting to visit Cafe JC's since it opened up in early 2017, but I didn't get a chance until very recently. Cafe JC's is a cosy place tucked away at the back side of the market in Sector- 10, Chandigarh. With bright decor and loads of natural light- the place exudes great warmth and good vibes.










It was a pleasure meeting the owner, Miss Jannat Chaddha who has put in her heart in setting up every corner of the cafe- from designing the whole space (ps she has studied Interior Designing and Cafe JC's is her first project as an Interior Designer!) to DIY  Mats, Flower Pots, etc. and handpicked as well as self- made Wall Hangings. This is exactly what makes the cafe feel homely, and warm!
Not just this, she also indulges herself in daily activities- cleaning, attending customers, taking orders, etc.- which is amazing!








Talking about food, Cafe JC's offers a mix of Asian and American dishes!

We ordered the "Going All Out" veg platter, which consisted of all my favorite snacks- Falafel, Pita, Nachos, and Jalapeno Poppers with my favorite dips- Hummus, Salsa Sauce, and Sour Cream. Literally, this was the most amazing platter that I have ever had. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you must have watched me drool over this one!

Next, we ordered "Indo-Chini Bro-Bro" which is a Veg/ Chicken sizzler served on a bed of Rice/ Noodles and a side of Paprika spiced Potato Wedges. We opted for the non- veg version with Rice, but since I am a vegetarian I only ate the Rice and Potato Wedges- and still loved it! It was the right blend of spices. 




The perfect end to our lunch at Cafe JC's was this slice of New York Cheese Cake. Not even exaggerating- this cake was heavenly!


If your mouth has started watering already, go visit Cafe JC's right away and I promise you won't be disappointed! Also, don't forget to say "Hi" to Jannat, she is the sweetest person ever with the most amazing sense of humor! In case you have trouble spotting her, I'll give you a hint: she has beautifully colored hair!
