I was bowled over with the love and affection of my fellow bloggers..I am speechless…

Bewildered as to how to start off with this post .. With apologies for being a busy beaver and a lazy bum, With loads of thanks for all the adulation and cheers by the blogger buddies or with the jamboree..

Let me take the opportunity to thank the adorable EXCEPTIONAL FOUR  –ANJAN, RESHMA, PANCHALI DI and MALINY  , who showered much love and luxury upon me..I am feeling so special and royal…I am humbled and gratified to be a part of this amazing blogger world..

Borrowing the idea from Maliny of skipping putting in the  details of the rules and regulations of receiving a LIEBSTER , and jumping right onto the procedure..

Here I serve the platter of 11 facts

1. Simple, Clear hearted , straight forward  person with a lot of patience,Gemini is        my sun sign.

2. My Mother is my best friend,philosopher and guide.

3. I am a self motivated person.

4. Listening gears up my mind, Reading satiates my soul, Writing lightens my heart.

5.I took training in KATHAK for 2 years and have been a part of local dance and drama troupes.. I am madly in  love with dancing.”Dhol ” beats roll and I am on the floor..

6. I am a die hard fan of Madhuri Dixit.

7. Yoga and meditation are the best tools to keep my mind body and soul in harmony.I have done  YIC from SVYASA Bangalore.

9. I never fall for the Fashionista blindly , instead I create my own comfortable style statement.I am a bit inclined towards ethnic wears..

10. High aversion for allopathy..Home remedies,naturopathy and homeopathy are best suited for my health..

11.I started writing since I was in eighth standard and was in Hindi of course..It was all genetic, I think ,as my maternal grandfather was a well known Urdu shaayar…two lines of my Hindi shaayri ~

  Jab dard milne lage naam pe davaa ke                                                                              to aur kya kahen,bahut badle hue se rukh hain hawaa ke….
