My answers to the questions are:

What is your blog about and what are your goals for your blog?

I started my blog as I wanted to share my life’s experiences and then I moved on to poems, stories, photography. I’m thankful that my blog has transformed ever since I had started this. For me, my blog is a blank space that gives me the opportunity to fill it with as many colours of creativity as possible. I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the support that I get from my fellow bloggers in the form of their encouraging, kind, supportive comments; likes or follows. I still don’t know what I’ll be adding new to the blog.

What are you most grateful for?
I’m grateful for a healthy mind and body. I used to have severe migraine and knee aches but I’m thankful that I don’t have them now.

What is your fondest memory?
My fondest memory is when I was a child of 5 or so and all the family members used to gather for Christmas celebrations.

Who most inspires you?
Nature! I’m inspired by nature.

If you could do anything, what would it be?
Fly! I would like to fly, fly like a kite, a bird, a butterfly, a fly.

What are you most proud of?
At the moment I’m proud of joining an art class.

What’s on your bucket list?
I feel like I haven’t slept in a long a while. I would like to go off to sleep for at least a day without being bothered by anybody as to how much I am sleeping. The next thing is a book that I’ve been working on.

What are you most passionate about?
Recently I feel that I’m drawn to two things — writing and drawing. I would either find myself writing something or sketching something. Although, when outdoors I love to click photos of anything strange, beautiful, and captivating.

Where would you most like to go?
I love trees and lots of greenery and flowers. I would like to go to a hilly place in a nice resort and take a walk, sit, meditate, click photos, talk to the locals. Eat, pray and love kinds. 😉

What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
I had visited Leh last year and I wanted to see the monasteries. They were at a great height. There was no other way than walking. One specific one was Hemis Monastery. It had stairs some 100 or so stairs I don’t remember the number now. But there was no other way — no cycles, no donkeys no motors. You just had to walk to reach the top or the monastery. I started walking but also feared that my knee would start hurting. Throughout the steps I kept the self- talk on. Once we reached I felt every step that I had walked was worth it. The beauty was majestic and the serenity of the place brought inner peace. The walk down was easy. After reaching the hotel in the evening I did some acupressure for myself and slept like a log.

What advice would you give to other bloggers?

Write, share and contribute to your blogging community. Be encouraging and supportive off the efforts of others.

The Sunshine Award


Today was just another day, until I checked my blog which had a hidden surprise for me by one of my fellow bloggers. I would like to thank Kirstan for sharing “The Sunshine Award” with me. I found her through freshly pressed for “Falling For An Amish Boy”. I read it, and instantly started following her. If you are wondering what made me do so, I would suggest you to visit her at

Blogging has helped me to find lovely people who share their stories, thoughts and views. During my short blogging journey I’ve found people whose stories make me happy, sometimes it is emotional and sometimes it is just a light read. As “The Sunshine Award” is for bloggers who positively and creatively inspire other bloggers; I would like to share this award with some of my fellow bloggers whose reads inspires me in some or the other way. I hope you also find inspiration when you read their blogs. Each has a different approach to life and a different style of presenting it.

If you would like to accept the nomination you could write a post about the award. Tell who nominated you and pass the award along to the others. You could also share some fun facts that the others might not know about you.

Now some fun facts about me:

  1. I have jet black hair.
  2. I love to travel to places and know about people and their cultures.
  3. Once I saved a small little bird when it dashed into the windshield of our car while the car was moving. It was badly hurt. I thought it would die. But I held it and kept praying. I saw it open its eyes and I let it fly.
  4. I don’t love cooking, but I always surprise myself along with others when I cook and people praise it.
  5. I love the idea of me sitting behind the wheels of a car as I’m very scared of driving.
  6. I love to get up early in the mornings, but don’t always sleep early at nights.
  7. I only listen to gossip when it benefits me and not harm others.
  8. I can keep secrets; so much so that I could forget what you said or where did I hide my secret pouch of money.
  9. I don’t like celebrations but I love it when people have a reason to be happy.
  10. I like to stay happy as it attracts positive energy not only for me but also for others who surround me.

Cheers! see you soon, till then just enjoy your life. 🙂
