Nirali k dil se

Myself Pooja aka Nirali. 'Nirali' is the name I have given to myself by combining all the adjectives I see in me, good or bad, all-inclusive. A yr back I discovered my hidden talent of writing (writing my thoughts, my emotions, my empathise, weaving stories). In a true sense, I discovered the way to pour out my soul through words. While playing the roles of a daughter, a wife, a mother, a friend, and a human...I am trying to be Me. Me.... who loves to giggle and mingle, who loves to share, who loves to love, who loves her imperfections, who loves to learn, who loves music and tapping her feets, who loves her not so curvy body. In all who loves herself. Follow me here
