7 Bloggers Who Were The Wind Beneath My Wings!

A super short post: yes, I had reserved it for the final day.

For various reasons, one being sounding sycophant, I was wary of writing this post. But after reading, “Don’t Think of the Blue Ball” by Malati Bhojwani (as part of readerscosmos review), I knew in my hearts of hearts that what I am doing was right. Yes, the book pumped me up so much!

The premise of the book is quite promising. It talks about gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation for people around you. In fact, the author suggests readers to maintain a Daily Gratitude Journal, wherein they should thank all the people who helped them during the day. (Sadly though, am yet to come up with such a journal.) 

So much for the greatness of the book. Honestly, I always wished to thank many bloggers promptly and profoundly for visiting my small space for these last seven days (well, almost), by replying to their priceless comments, but I admit, I've miserably failed to do so. Time constraints…hope you understand. So, here I am thanking all my senior bloggers who helped me sail through this festival with flying colors. I would have gone only so far without their comments (precisely, I would have come up with just 4 posts, no more). A special thanks to Corinne for organizing the festival and suggesting fellow bloggers to comment on at least three posts in front of their links… that set me sailing…ended up commenting regularly on 10 to 12 blogs. Peanuts! I know, considering that some senior bloggers spread their fragrance across all blogs commenting and inspiring...thus pushing the envelope in terms of commenting.

There are many like me who are the ‘Children of the Lesser God’ in terms of language limitations, but a kind word uttered by a fellow blogger makes the whole world go round. Believe me!


So here’s goes the list of bloggers who I want to give a big shout-out for being with me for all these days. Thanks for being the wind beneath beneath my wings.

#1. Richa
#2. Roshini
#3. Suresh
#4. Vishal
#6. Me

Tussi great ho, tofa kabul karo

Others bloggers that I can bring to mind include: Smitha, Shilpa, Sugandha, Usha Menon, Jyothi Nair Mahabore, Diana, Susan Deborah, Karan Shah, Talya Tate Boerner,Shail,Kathy, Anu and of course, Corinne. Thank You All.    

Since starting this challenge, I've more than quadrupled the number of people who look at this blog. Agreed, that's still not an good number, but I did love all the attention that my blog was getting.  

Write Tribe Team...I doff my hat to you.

Gujarat to Goa - A Photo Story

Goa - It's 3702 square kms of pure adrenaline, where the sun, the sea and the sand never go on a vacation.
But then, for me and my family, it was the Holy churches, Home-stay concept and the Carpet of greenery turned out to be the ultimate showstoppers. (Talking about churches and greenery, Goa and Kerala could be referred as twin sisters. They are so much alike in terms of food, climate, churches and the greenery around. The moment we entered Goa I became extremely nostalgic.)



We were in Thivim, Goa from January 23, 2017, to January 27, 2017,  and we loved every bit our stay at Ajit Navelkar’s Villa. We had booked his house online through Airbnb, and I tell you, it was worth every penny spent. My younger one liked the house so much so that he nicknamed it as our “Doosra Ghar.” 
By the way, our Doosra Ghar was huge. The living room was spacious and lovely.  From the wooden lamps to the lighting arrangement to the perfectly synced wall frames and the wooden furniture, almost every…

The Story Of A Designer Diya

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 43; the forty-third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "LIGHT" (Today, fifteen-years ago, Roshini had first lighted this antique designer diya at her dilapidated shanty. Today, fifteen-years after, Roshini is still excited about this old designer diya; and she’d once again light it up with all the energy and enthusiasm; but no, not at her shabby shanty.)                                         -----------------------------------



The designer diya was old, dull, dim and dinted. It lay there in the corner of the kitchen store room unwanted, uncared for amidst other regular diyas, half-burnt candles, unused rangoli colors, plastic thorans: all tightly tied-up and stored in a thick polythene bag.
Deepawali cleaning was going on in full swing; and for best reasons known to Reshma, my mai…
