Namaste!
How’s everybody’s Zoom meditation class coming along – I’m really excited about mine!

.

As you may have seen from my social channels, I was surprised and thrilled to find a new comedy outlet in Zoom shows (private and public). I have been working harder than ever, creating new content and spreading the word.
.
It really has been a far more rewarding journey than I ever could have imagined. I went from pretty much total devastation that my shows were cancelled to a new sense of connection and community with my online audiences all across the world, including Stanford University, Hong Kong, St. Maarten, and Bombay herself (in association with the popular blog Humans of Bombay which has nearly a million followers).
.
I wrote a little more about my “Covid Comedy Adventure” on my blog here .
.
.
The response to my online shows has been overwhelming and I wanted to share some of my favorite reviews with you.
.
.
Don’t be shy! Now is the time to reach out. I’m doing birthday parties, wedding, virtual Sangeets, happy hours, corporate meetings, client engagement events, and even a remembrance/funeral. I’ve done small, intimate affairs for 6 people and webinars for over 200.

Snapshots of my Lockdown Life

Zoya and Veer shelter in place together.

I recently had a moment when I was really craving some bhel but it’s so complicated to buy the ingredients even when there’s not a pandemic. When I found out Desi Galli delivered bhel kits with prepared meals or just groceries, I immediately leapt into action.

As you can see, it’s been a very quiet few days.
.
I’ve got to go. My “special water” has just arrived for my Zoom meditation class.
.
Namaste everyone!
