Life is not a mid-summer nights dream, nor is it a tempest, it is but a comedy of errors so live it as u like it – Sushmita Sen
Mother, marketer, lecturer, advisor, wife, sister and daughter are some of the roles people recognize me by. Though I am happiest when I am reading, traveling, writing, singing, cooking or doing craft, doting on my four-legged and two legged babies. Unfortunately the latter doesn’t give me a pay check.
I enjoy my own company most of the time, though I need doses of adventure and people. My adventures can range from cooking new food to exploring caves. Sometimes even sitting on the porch swing or singing while it rains is adventure enough to sustain me for a while. Some days I am full of energy and have no time to breathe. Some other days I binge watch series and order takeout all weekend.
I hope to write about my adventures and misadventures in this blog and post some photos. This is mainly for my own entertainment, but I do hope you like it too.

My privacy, Watching the rain, Animals, Movies-books-music, long drives, vacations, talking about obscure stuff, contemplating, learning, the list is endless.
