About

Hi, I’m Ila!

This is a personal blog about my journey — within and without.

I started this blog in 2015 to reflect on my experiences living and working in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, India (hence the name आईना, m. mirror). It has since evolved into a travel blog of sorts, where I continue to share and reflect on my experiences as I explore the world 🙂

I recently launched the आईना newsletter as an extension of this blog. Subscribe if you’d like to hear from me about my travel experiences, culinary adventures, favorite books, and other interesting things.

Connect with me on Instagram and Twitter — I’d love to hear from you!
