Hello and a very warm welcome to “My Favourite Things”.
When I began blogging here, it was with the intention of only writing about my travel experiences. Soon, I found myself writing about books, music, photography, museums, and Mumbai. More recently, I have started writing on art, food and product reviews I also write occasionally on social issues that matter to me or interest me, or on topics that I want to contribute my two bits to. In other words, this blog reflects my many interests, much like my varied educational background — Geology and Public Relations .
I am one of the founders of #TSBC (or The Sunday Book Club), an armchair and actual traveller, a book nerd, an editor, a communications consultant, an amateur photographer, a Classical music (Indian, Western and Arabic) lover, a mythology enthusiast, a closet graphic designer… I am all that, this and more ! I did say I have multiple interests, didn’t I?
I am based in Mumbai where I spend my days at my full-time job, my evenings devoted to books and music, and my nights dreaming about places to travel to. In between all this, I somehow manage to find time to blog. :D
This blog completed four years on 2nd June 2014 and it has been a heady journey of self-discovery and growth as an individual. The posts I wrote after crossing each annual milestones will tell you more about that journey.
