hmm, after gaining some more worldly wisom, here I am yet again. To give my two cents.
This journey in blogging started two years back as an attempt to test the unknown waters. Unsure how my rudimentary skills in writing would help me stay afloat in this big world of blogging, I embarked on this road nonetheless, with the only goal of putting a happy smile on my readers’ face. Simple goal. I never wanted this to be a place for big, complimented subjects. So if you are looking at some serious sharing of knowledge on some fancy, ‘hot’ subject, I am sorry, this is not the place you’d enjoy.
After living a quarter of century in Mumbai, India, I have now moved to live with my husband in New Zealand. And though these two places are as different from each other as chalk and cheese, I can’t help but notice that all people are essentially the same, no matter in which part of the world you are. We are all made up of the same core ingredients that make us who we are…humans! We all feel happy and sad about same kinds of things, we also worry about same kinds of things, and we all celebrate similar things in life, only in different styles.
‘All things worldly’ is about random musings on everyday trivia. This blog is about people, about everyday things that affect us. This is also a blog about my observations, my thoughts, my new life in NZ vis-à-vis my old life in India. You would find stories here, some funny and some touching. You would also find a few references to some of the most wonderful people in my life.
This is the kind of place you crave after you have been away for a long time. Home. Simple and uncomplicated. Yet warm and welcoming.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to pour your thoughts over mine.
Previously on “About”
I often wonder how you describe yourself in ‘About Me’ sections everywhere, on various networking sites, interviews, job portals etc. What can you write/say about your entire existence in a couple of words? And especially when you know people are going to read this and form opinions about you on basis of this, it puts you in the hot seat and you almost feel like a student writing an exam with the need to please the examiner.
So what do you want to know about me?
What do I do for a living? – I am working on secret project of national interest.
Is this my picture? – Yes
Am I single? – Ya right, why should I tell you that?
Are you ready to mingle? – Why does this clichéd question always follow the above question?
What is my age? – No one ever told you to never ask a girl her age?
Why did I choose wordpress? – Coz everyone chooses Blogspot
Do I live in India? Yes, I do
In Mumbai? Yes, in Mumbai
Do you really find elephants on the roads here? *Yawns*
Can’t you answer one simple question, ‘Tell us something about yourself?’
Okay here goes:
I am an MBA in Marketing, I work as a Corporate Communications Manager, I blog in free time, I love to read, I love to cook, I am restless, I need to drink lots of water, so that obviously means that I have to use the loo much too often, I like to exercise, I am shallow, I am the author of, ‘She is not an MBA’ (you may want to Google it), I am homely, no I don’t feel insecure, and yes I ambitious and yes am confused about things…………………………….I am dozing off. This is so boring!
