Hi! This is Shail, your friendly neighborhood homemaker.
I stumbled upon the net one fine day a few years back and have felt like Alice in Wonderland ever since. An incurable romantic at heart, I blog, read, listen to music, and play sudoku, apart from my good old ‘homemaking’ duties of taking care of three Martians, a dog, sundry cats and kittens that enter and exit my life at will. Nothing extraordinary about that, right? …and yet, like the ketchup ad goes, I am different. Keep that in mind when you read what I write.
Irreverent is my middle name. I question anything and everything. Period. That things have been practiced for eons is not good enough reason for me that they be considered sacred and followed to the letter. On the contrary. Probably sheep with herd mentality are the only ones who follow without thinking, questioning. Since I am no sheep, you will find ideas expressed here that go against the popularly accepted ones set out by society.
But that’s only occasional. Most of the time I am looking at life through a mirror that makes everything look out of shape and funny. It may not be everyone’s brand of humor. But hey, to each their own. I also write absolutely sad drivel in the name of poetry. Be warned. For those brave souls who can stomach such stuff: Take a look at Words in verse… my poetry blog.
A warning: Anyone who interacts with me beware! I most definitely will use the conversations with you in my posts if the topic so demands. Of course, anonymously. So it is now up to you whether you would like to interact with me or not. I have had friends turn foes just because I used conversations we have had as a starting point of a post, a part of it or sometimes just as humor. I have also had friends who have understood this approach of mine perfectly too. I have always protected the identity of the persons concerned and will do so in the future too.
A note: NO, I was never an English Literature student, but am a post graduate in Economics. So you might find mistakes in my written work. My apologies.
