I am born Indian, living in North America where everyone comes from various regions of the world leading to a treasure of cultures, traditions, rituals, languages, fashion, lifestyles and ideas that are outrageously different from your own. Learning to accept and love someone from a different culture and embrace their differences not only helps you open your heart but also become more accepting and open-minded.
Transitioning from a country with one concentrated culture into a country with a wealth of cultures and traditions was a bizarre experience as a child. I was exposed to countless cultures/traditions/lifestyles as an eight-year old immigrant due to which, I wandered away from my roots. “Staying rooted to your culture/tradition and being proud of where you come from is the first step for knowing and discovering yourself.” –Yours Truly.
I have taken my first courageous leap into the world of blogging hoping to discover new passions and of course discover myself. What matters most to me is that you enjoy reading my newbie writing/views and support me where you can otherwise thank you for dropping by!
Treat each day as a festival/holiday! All of us are in a super jolly mood closer to the holiday season especially around Christmas/ Diwali. As soon as we return to work or go back to routine after new years- we become the grumpy, old neighbour again. Incorporating the festive mood into our everyday routines would naturally bring much more joy to our everyday, boring routines.
I tried to incorporate the festive mood into this look- ornamented myself with fresh jasmine (mogra) flowers, wore a simple blue semi-silk saree, draped the saree in a different way, experimented with makeup, explored the local architectural art in Toronto and spent time with my loved one (i.e. my better half).
Enjoy the festival of routine every day!

"I was hell lot of confused if I have made the right decision or not! The workplace was quite far from my house and my parents weren't too happy about the decision. But eventually everything turned out to be for the best! "
"My boss was so cool. I had a roller coaster of emotions but, he not only made me feel comfortable in the new setting, he took all new employees including me to Lunch. It was great. And has been great since then!"
"I felt amazing seeing the beautiful desk. The first thing that I did was I arranged my family photos because I was already homesick after I came in. I was afraid of how many experienced people were surrounding me."
