ME: Am a stay-at-home-mom who enjoys being one and loves to watch her daughter grow. Having been born and raised in Delhi, I’m a Delhiite to the core with a heart of a Malayali. I’m currently based in Dubai, a city I’m getting to know and waiting to fall in love with.
I moved in here in June 2014 from Doha, Qatar- a place I didn’t like being in initially, but went on to grow on me and gel with me perfectly, much to my surprise! And now I am fervently hoping that I take to Dubai just as perfectly well.
Music is something which is ingrained in me.It always soothes me whenever I’m low. I love listening to anything thats pleasing to the ears. Apart from that my hobbies include travelling, shopping(more specifically for my daughter), reading(not voraciously though, but works of selected few like Jeffrey Archer, Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham, and more recently Khaled Hosseini, Chitra Divakaruni, Indu Sundaresan) ,playing Scrabble(to the point of being addicted to it), net-surfing, pouring my heart out to my husband(oh yes,he is my primary vent turf) and for the last six years, blogging.
THE BLOG: This space is to mainly share my thoughts and experiences happening in and around me, the way I perceive.
Blogging liberates me whenever I speak my mind about things I feel strongly about, excites me every time I come across like-minded people who relate with my posts, makes me see the other side of my viewpoint when people disagree with me. So blogging is one aspect of my life I am glad I ventured into.
The two constant mentions in my posts will be the two people around whom my life is woven. R, my husband and Namnam, our daughter raising whom we learn a new facet of parenting everyday.
The current header is an image of a sand sculpture which was a part of an exhibition held a while ago in Doha.
The previous header has the image of Souq Waqif, a traditional market located in the heart of Doha. The market has been built in an authentic fashion keeping in mind the traditional roots of Qatar. It has a labyrinth of alleyways lined with small shops selling all kinds of good ranging from dry fruits, nuts, perfumes, spices, shoes, clothing, etc. The Souq is emerging as a major tourist attraction in the country.
The previous header, named MistyDeeps by its creator,Solilo includes some palm tress to signify my Malayali roots,rains to signify my current craving,which is practically there through the year,and Namnam,the essence of my blog. Oh and BTW,do you all see the stain on far right?Yeah,thats tea spilled by Namnam as visioned by her Soliloauntie!
Sols,thank you from the bottom of my heart for this header and for being such a darling.You’re an amazing artist and an even greater friend 🙂
