About Me

I started this blog, in 2004, when I came across an article about web log or 'Blog' which was supposed to be an online diary of sorts. The writer in me was intrigued. And since then, I have had phases of activities on this blog but never abandoned because 'most of my life is here'. It is fun to read old posts and re-discover the old times.

I quit my Marketing Communication job (a rather good one) because I felt it was not my calling. I did not want to spend the rest of my life waiting for the weekends. A working professional spends most of her waking hours on the job, so it should be the one that she loves. With nursing dreams of a career in writing, I put in my papers. But as someone said 'life is what happens to you when you are busy making plans'. I discovered that I was expecting. So, that called for change of plans.

I believe in giving 100% to everything I take up, motherhood wasn't going to be any different. So, not working actually turned into a blessing because I never had guilt pangs or worries of leaving a child behind. I saw this as an opportunity to focus on raising our baby, and read and write in all my free time. 

Now around 2 years later, I am a privileged stay-at-home-mom to our son. I read a lot about parenting and implement quite a few of my learnings. I am also a freelance writer (read some of my posts here) and a voracious reader (read my book reviews here and find my book list here). 

As my little one learns new things every day, I am also taking baby steps towards a career in writing. I am open to exciting opportunities in writing or anything that integrates writing with creativity. 

Creativity for me is a way of life, expressed in setting up a warm home, creating specialized gifts for loved ones or writing. I love doing up interiors and I am always on the look out for interesting, kitschy products for home.


Well, that's the short-story of my life.

  1. It's a really good feeling when you realise that being a stay at home mom is your calling :)

    1. Being a stay-at-home mom was what I preferred over the job I was doing or some such other job. Twenty years down the line, I should be proud and satisfied with what I did with my life. However, my true calling is writing. Still finding feet on that one.
      I am curious about your lifestyle choices and will definitely drop in to know more.
