I thought it’s about time that I edited this page and filled it up with words of my own, since it’s the only page that’s been viewed the most. So am just a gal next door who likes to reveal about her life in this space.
I love listening to music, especially old Hindi movie songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar. I wouldn’t go into the patent; am a total fan of hers coz it’s been said just too many times. But listening to her songs takes me on a completely different plane where it feels very calm and tranquil. I also like to listen to Mehdi Hassan and Ghulam Ali. Ya, I am orthodox and live in the first half of the century when it comes to songs and music.
I am a procrastinator. This is clearly visible since I am updating this page now after such a long time! I would procrastinate till the last minute possible or when I think that I would be getting a nice firing from someone unless I do the thing.
I like to read but more than that I like to buy books. Probably it’s the idea of reading that I like. From devouring Mills & Boons and Agatha Christie, I am now inclined to read literature.
Most of the time, I let life take decisions for me, which won’t always turn out to be the best but I live with it.
I like to travel. Specially the Sahyadris. Travelling in the mountains is a totally different experience and nothing can top it when I am travelling in the train or a bus with hills by my side. Even the Himalayas are a wonderful place to travel to.
I can be pretty staunch and orthodox when it comes to certain things but am trying to get over it and let myself be flexible. My friends feel that I should have been born in a previous generation.
I can spend hours at the computer or in front of the TV. I will keep browsing sites and blogs on the net and watch any stupid serial on the TV
Well, that’s all I can think of about myself right now!
Updated to add (June 2011): I have been living in Edinburgh, Scotland since June 2010 and this has been the best adventure so far. I have a son who’s just turned two and most of my time is spent running behind him.
Updated to add (Jan 2015): It’s been 4 years living in Edinburgh and I am enjoying every moment of it. The kiddo is 5 and has started primary school here. I have stopped all the stupid serials and now it’s just movies and books.
