Hello Dear Reader,

Thank you for stopping by. If you are looking for any tips or tricks on how to go about your life sorry reading this blog may not help you..(or will it?) Okay on a more serious note..I’m the author – Nishi; a former banker who quit her job to follow her husband to the U.S and now full time mum to a 2 year old and amateur homemaker.

My blog  would be me throwing up violently onto the blogosphere my thoughts that circle and circle my mind in an endless loop…Ok, before you freak out, not to scare or disgust you with that imagery..Its just going to be a couple of stories here and there with some images/drawings some activities we could do just a general blog on stuff going around in our lives.

Ive always loved reading stories and poems for “Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” not my words but those of Joyce Carol Oates..having been a student of English Literature during my graduate studies, Ive always enjoyed the process of writing as tough as it can be at times… 🙂

I  hope to be able to inspire you to find your own form of expressing yourself through writing or art or music or even cooking…..do feel free to comment and share…would love to hear your views and ideas…


Your pal,


Create, Express, Live

    1. Wow Ronovan..really? I’m honored..don’t know much about the awards here though..shall wait for the details.. 🙂 Thank you deeply humbled by your thoughtfulness..

      1. Thank you Ronovan..read the post..thank you very much deeply honored..by the way I may be Indian but I live in Utah, U.S and my blog is mostly a showcase of my artistic offerings literary and otherwise….just incase you thought it was based in India..:)

      2. 🙂 I know. I read about that, but you bring a bit of India with you at times. And you bring a different perspective from some of my other favorites from India. I think actually bringing some of that into your work more and doing a bit of comparison or blending would be excellent. You would have a very nice view of some issues.

      3. Oh yes..you are right..I will definitely try to do that you are right that would make it a little more different and will lend a nice perspective to the cultures as I see it…Thank you! Hope you had a nice weekend.

  2. a very neat and clear intro. Thanks for following my blog. I shall be appearing in your visitors list often. 🙂 Regards.

    1. Thank you Manu for stopping by enjoyed reading your blog too.witty and original posts…looking forward to your comments and feedback..Cheers, Nishi

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog.i happened to read through yours begning with about me section:). Seems interesting, after all, is going to have stories during time you moved from india and the time you were a home maker :).Would love to read more. Cheers shilpa:)

    1. Thank you very much Shilpa..truly appreciate the kind words..did I tell you how much I loved your blog and specially your art..looking forward to many more interactions! Lots of love, Nishi

      1. Im from South India too..Kerala to be exact.. 🙂 loved your poetry..’embroidered laugh who wore red’ what imagery! amazing!

      2. When I came back to Canada, I felt like an Indian villager moving to Toronto. Everything I experienced in India changed me so profoundly, I still feel a bit like an immigrant in my own country. Very nice to meet you. I hope your move to the US was less dramatic?

      3. haha really? Pondicherry did that to you? Must be the idyllic setting..it wasnt as dramatic since I was under no pressure and could take my time to take in the changes..but yes I did have my set of withdrawal symptoms as I call it..very nice to meet you too Wuji and what a unique name..do keep in touch…

      4. Yes 11 years in Auroville, without leaving India between the ages of 16-24 and the ages of 3-7, did it to me 😛 The counter culture-shock was enormous, due to the various ideological changes in me as well. I lived in a lifestyle that was tied to Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy, etc…

        ‘Wuji’ is a pen name I have adopted since my girlfriend is from Taiwan. How long have you been writing poetry for Nishi?

      5. Wow..that mustve been such a wonderful childhood experience your philosophical foundation shines through in your writing..I’ll be honest with you Wuji..I never thought I could write poetry it was mostly prose..Ive only just started experimenting since I started my blog a couple of mnths back..how long have you been writing?

      6. You have the poet’s touch and a more profound diction than is ordinary, you should keep writing I think. You can be a writer surely!

        I’ve been writing seriously for 6 years I guess. Auroville was a very eccentric, eclectic and colorful background for my youth.

        Do you ready any poets in particular?

      7. Wow! Thank you so much I really value your compliment Wuji…Ive only heard stories about Auroville but never been..Ive only read Frost and Tagore..are there any poets youd like to recommend Id love if you would.

      8. May I see your horoscope? Then I would be better equipped to recommend poets to read. One of my pet hobbies in Auroville, was teaching myself astrology (not Vedic, mostly just the western style).

      9. What I meant was, I can see it if you give me your date of birth. Date and place of birth (biggest nearest town) with time of day if possible.

        Better to be Christians in the US these days. 😛

      10. My birthday is on the 27th oh June and Im a cancerian is all I know.. 🙂 yea was born a Christian dont know anything much else.. 🙂

      11. Ah okay what year is that? In what town? Does your Mom know the time of day? All astrologers need this info to make the chart accurate. hehe.

        I’m 17th of May, 1979 myself.

      12. Oh okay a Gemini.I was born in 84..anywho..dont bother with my horoscope Wuji..wont make a difference..:) will definitely give you a shout out if I get into it some time in future.. 🙂

    So I think you should go to your local library and get books out by:
    1. Walt Whitman
    2. Sara Teasdale
    3. Emily Dickinson
    4. Edna St. Vincent Millay
    5. Pablo Neruda

      1. And fyi, astrologically speaking you do have a rare aspect that is well suited to writing being a passionate hobby of yours.

        Your Mercury (mind) is in sensitive Cancer Trine (120 degrees) to Saturn (concentration, depth psychology, discipline). This aspect is only exaggerated with your Mars in Scorpio, that is incredibly determined and energetic. A sun in Cancer can write beautiful lyrical poetry, that is sentimental and personally relevant.

        I looking forward to reading you.

      2. Wow..you are good! Thank you Wuji..I hope to keep up the momentum your feedback and comments are anticipated and appreciated.

      3. I’m glad to hear that Nishi-Radha, I don’t randomly contact people or poets very often. I’ll read your blog more, when the muse of the day has subsided more.

    1. Thank you Ronovan..Honored and Happy to accept the same from you – being a blogger I admire and follow myself..Thank you once again.. 🙂

    1. Hello and namaskaram! I’m so glad to meet you too! after reading your comment I did a quick swoop Into your blog and your yummy cakes had me stop right on my tracks..looks like I will be dropping by there quite a lot…where in Kerala are you from? thank you for dropping by looking forward to interacting with you more dear!

      1. Namaskaram Nishi…feel kinda funny actually, because I hardly remember wishing anyone Namaskaram back in India, used to do the Namaste hand gesture though..”enthokkeyund” would be my word of choice… :-)…I’m from Trivandrum…what about you?…let me also thank you for your kind words about my blog.

      2. Wow…so many awesome relatives and friends, huh?…well, ummm…you don’t need to reply to that you know.. 🙂 .. Your words are so elegant and you write with such ease.

      3. Haha..true a lot of awesome people..now I know one more ;)..Thank you so much deary for your very kind words.Im actually a fan of your informal and easy style of presenting recipes..Thank you once again..Always welcome!

  5. Create, Express, Live…

    This is something that I’ve harbored a belief in for quite some time, which is why encountering your blog is such a joy. Creating is living and if we aren’t creating we are simply pretending to live.

    Thanks for putting this out into the Universe!

    1. So happy to meet you Shun and yes I totally agree with you a life without creativity is equivalent to death or maybe sleepwalking while wide awake.Looking forward to reading more of your posts.Do continue to drop by.Thank you once again.. 🙂

  6. Hello Nishi…

    I just wanted to catch up and say “thank you. I appreciate your ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also add my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    The blog has grown to some 1150 posts now; so if you are at a loose end one day, you’d be most welcomed to stay a while and have a trawl through. There are plenty of drop-down categories within the menu to help in said digging process. Saying that, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
