How did we reduce waste in Adhiyan’s first birthday party

My friends asked me what was going to be the theme for Adhiyan’s party and all I could say was “less waste”. Since we had around 60 guests we couldn’t host the party at our apartments and we had to rent a party hall. We decided to do the decor on our own and started…

DIY – Painted Canvas & Storage box

Craft has always been part of my pastime since my childhood. I used to create greeting cards using chart papers, newspapers and pictures from magazines.

Madras Memories

When I received the joining letter from Accenture on Aug 17th, 2009, I was super excited that I am going to join my first job, but my family was a little disappointed because the joining location was “Chennai”.
