As I drove to Manyata Tech Park for a unique blogging event organized jointly by Blogadda and Tata Motors, I wondered whether I should buy a car at all. The traffic was quite heavy and I was driving from the southern end of Bangalore to the Northern end which made me wonder whether I should add ...

For me, it is difficult to let go of old gadgets and opt for a new one,especially when it comes to phones. I love new gadgets, but letting go of the old ones is tough. At present I don't think I have any right to criticize any mobile phone, considering I am happily using my HTC wildfire which is ...

and cassette recorder all rolled in one? The younger generation would not even

Remember the days when 3-in-1 meant a cassette player, radio and cassette recorder all rolled in one? The younger generation would not even know about them because soon CDs replaced the cassettes and we had the cassette players combined with CD players in coming years.

motherhood. I know you are already disagreeing with me and getting ready to

I have always taken pride in being on time everywhere so far. Lately, it has almost become impossible for me to anywhere on time (give and take 10 minutes). Bangalore traffic has become so unpredictable that either I am quite early or late. It was no different Friday evening. I am not sure, ...

Story
Tagline
You can push me down, put you cannot hold me there! I am a fighter........
Introduction
I am a Mom of two youngsters, who I love with my whole being. They are my world. I am pursuing my education again after 25 years and doing fairly well. At present I work as Freelance Writer regularly. I have experience in working as counselor, mentor for counseling students at 'Banjara Academy' and teacher. 
I was diagnosed with Infiltrating breast carcinoma (breast cancer), state III, in April 1996 when I was breast feeding my 11 month old daughter. I have been lucky to survive breast cancer for more than 17 years… 
I enjoy being ME despite the roller coaster ride of life.... and I am quite sure after being with myself for so many years that I do not want to be anyone else. I accept things as they are because, I believe God to be smarter than me. He knows what is good in the long run. I never intend to spoil his plans for me with prayers or by asking him to do what I think is right. I did rather leave it to him to choose what is best for me.
Bragging rights
Mom of two most wonderful children in the whole world, Winner of III stage Breast cancer battle.
