About me


Oh HELLO there internet warrior, who has traveled from far and wide to reach here. Let me tell you a little about myself. Yours truly lives in Bombay. I am a journalist and writer. Compulsive shopaholic. Lover of books, cats, fashion, cinema, red wine, sarcasm, chai, shoes, in no particular order of lovingness.

My friends are getting married, engaged and having babies around me. I am only getting drunk and writing, mostly. But that’s not the point.

Apart from writing for bread, butter and wine, I write for myself. I used to scribble in cigarette packs and torn notebooks, sitting in classrooms and roads, till kind people around suggested me to put my thoughts in one blog. So, here I am.

The voices in my head were too happy with the idea. I am going to blog about anything that makes me happy – cinema, food, book reviews, love, life, sex, relationships, fashion, Bombay, travel, social issues, Calcutta and everything in between.

I shall write a book someday, hopefully. My friends think I should.

Please do not copy-paste stuff from here without my permission. Chances are I would say no even if you do ask for my permission.

I dig feedbacks and will try and reply to each of your comments. Write to me at ushnota@gmail.com or drop a mention on Twitter @journojuno should you have any questions or if you want a collaboration with your brand.

Enjoy the blog!

    • Hi Aayushi,

      I’m a huge American TV show buff. Haven’t written anything in those lines yet, though it’s surely some food for thought. x

  4. I read your article about DCH yesterday and looked up your blog after that. Good stuff. I really like the way your blog has a personality. Am a Hindi movie buff, would be nice to have a chat session on Hindi movies . I tried to blog myself but somehow never started writing about movies!!

  5. I’ve been contemplating taking a solo trip for months and haven’t gathered the courage to. And all that changed just now, after reading your blogposts. Tell me, which bus can I take from Delhi to McLeodganj?

  6. Hey miss Journalist! You write awesome 🙂 whenever i find something heart touching content, all of sudden my inner writer becomes alive. I used to think, lets get settle first and then I’ll start writing but I was wrong. Once you get trapped by career, business and client meetings you can’t do anything. I couldn’t become a writer but I’m a good reader, not so frequent but one book a month.
    There are many people who found you through many different ways but mine is quite funny.
    As usual i was scrolling twitter feed for latest trends and i came across Trendulkar, hope you know him. I found his twitts funny and i decided to visit his profile, and thats where my journey of meeting you started. That profile was so funny that i followed him and even decided to follow him on Instagram. And guess what? There i found a scary gal from Annabelle :p i was shocked and went through the comments and got your comment “dont talk to me now” . That look was so scary, and i was curious to know how exactly you look like in person so i clicked on your profile and got this link…..
    Happy Writing!
