I am on a lookout for challenges in the coming weeks and my ultimate aim to turn into an author from a blogger.
Talking about your own story is always an unnerving task. Here I am today sharing my story and I don’t know where to start from.
So, I start with my school and college days. I was a bright student and scored good marks. I liked to participate and explore co-curricular domains as well whether it was singing, essay writing, poem recitation, debate, quiz and what not. And I registered my presence all over as a winner.
As I entered college, I don’t why I restricted myself to very few activities and concentrated more on studies. Maybe I was worried about my result as I scored below my expectations in my school exams. I completed my post graduation with distinction and was very happy that I achieved what I wanted. I also cleared the entrance exam for B.Ed and was all set to pursue my career when suddenly my life took a U-turn & I got married in 2010.
I couldn’t complete B.Ed because I had to move to another city with my husband. It was a decision taken in haste and I still regret that I could not complete my education. I thought I would complete after my marriage but I was wrong.
Another big change was waiting for me. I was pregnant after a few months of my marriage and In 2011 I was blessed with a princess and now I was a mom.
From being a student a year back, I was suddenly a mother by the year ended. My role was changing so dramatically. I forgot about my goals and my focus completely shifted to my daughter. When she was 1 year old, she suffered from pneumonia and her health took priority for the next 6 years. Although recovered now, her sensitivity towards infections is still high. Meanwhile, her baby brother arrived when she turned 5 years old and the whole cycle started all over again.
After my son turned 2 years old, I decided to start thinking about myself again. A long break from my passion for reading and teaching disturbed me most of the time. But I managed to come out of it somehow. I was not sure about my career. I wanted to balance both work and family with it.
I loved reading and writing. I used to write a diary about my experiences, my emotions and the impressions that were rooted in my subconscious mind… and so I started writing.
I created my account on WordPress but I was not regular on it. I wrote 2 initial posts and then there was a break of 6 months, where I felt frustrated an puzzled at my situation. But In the middle of November 2018, I convinced myself that if I do not thinking about myself now, then I will recede in a shell and it will be very difficult for me to come out of there.
Thankfully I prepared myself to fight this battle and I started writing back to back, daily or atleast three to four times in a week. The beginning was not so good but I made my way and never gave up. Gradually I was gaining my confidence.
And In the starting of the year 2019 with lots of Ifs and buts, I prepared myself to take part in the blogging challenge named SuperBloggerChallenge. I participated in three challenges back to back.
This was not easy for me but I was mentally prepared for anything. This determination helped me a lot. And I am glad to announce that I was declared as a winner “Most Promising Blogger” in SuperbloggerChallenge 2019.
Now I have a plan for everything in my mind and taking it one step at a time. I am on a lookout for challenges in the coming weeks and my ultimate aim to turn into an author from a blogger. This is my story. This is the story of a budding blogger with ‘author dreams’ in her eyes.
My mantra is, “If there is a will, there is a way always.”

What I loved was how there is so much in the movie of the SRK we have known, and also a totally new star. The gestures, the smile, the wit and the charisma are all too familiar, but you also witness a rawness, an edginess.
When a movie that got the entire nation in a twist – for the right and wrong reasons – hits the theatres, there is bound to be noise. From ‘I am going to watch it – first day first show’ to ‘Boycott the movie and make it a flop’, social media has been a furore of posts.
Let me get one thing straight here – I did not watch Pathaan to make a statement or to simply rebel as people would put it. I went to watch it for the sheer pleasure of witnessing my favourite superstar in all his glory being what he is best at being – his magnificent self. Because when it comes to screen presence, he burns it, melts it and then resurrects it as well like no other. Because when it comes to style and passion, he owns it like a boss. Because SRK is, in a way, my last connecting point to the girl that I once was. Though I have evolved into so many more things over the years, I don’t think I am ready to let go of that girl fully yet.
There is no elephant in the room really here because it’s a fact that Bollywood has a lot of cleaning up to do. Calling out on all the problematic aspects of the industry is important and in doing that, maintaining objectivity is also equally imperative. I went for Pathaan for entertainment and got more than I had hoped for. It is a clever, slick, witty, brilliantly packaged action movie that delivers what it promises to. Logic definitely goes flying out of the window at times and some scenes will make you go ‘kuch bhi’ , but the screenplay clearly reminds you that you knew all along what you were in for. The action sequences are lavish and someone like me who is not exactly a fan of this genre was also mind blown.
Recent footage of her coming out of an airport had comments preaching karma and its cruel ways, that Samantha "deserved her illness" because she filed for divorce.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu fell from being the public’s sweetheart to a villain overnight because she filed for divorce. The actress was struck with myositis post divorce, much to the joy of certain groups (read sexist) in our society.
A troll responded to Samantha’s tweet, “Women Rising!!” by adding to it “just to fall”. She replied, “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.”
Here’s another insensitive tweet by BuzZ Basket showing fake concern for her autoimmune disease. “Feeling sad for Samantha, she lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of divorce strongly and her professional life was seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again.” Samantha responded, “I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did. And here’s some love from me to add to your glow.”
