Welcome to my digital den!

Hi all. This is Prathi Balasubramanian. I'm from a buzzing coastal South Indian city called Chennai. I'm a yoga instructor, budding vegan chef, depth-of-field shots aficionado, arbitrary doodlist, macrocosm freak and basically just a hooman who prefers peace over pandemonium.

Praying for a pause button!

As a child, and even more so as teenager, I had a very glamorously Skewed sense of how adulthood would play out. Childhood reminds of those days of longing when a lame kiddie height-chart would bulldoze my fun-ride dreams.
