Shine on you Crazy Diamond

It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n’ roll.

But, along the way, I’ve learnt to find my calling, my true self, my rebellious edge, and parts of me that I’ve fallen in love with. I am a writer, a mother, and a lot of work in progress. This blog is sometimes a camouflaged history, sometimes a dreamy imagination, and at other times a dissociation from reality. But, at all times, it is me at that exact point in time & space. 100% organic. 100% shining like a crazy diamond.

This is me

This blog simply began as an extension of my joy for sharing – experiences, stories & everything else in between. My true love for writing, music, self-love, Murakami and lipsticks, all came together with the birth of ‘Moms aren’t Gentlemen‘. Two years, and counting, I’ve loved being in a space that’s mine, and yours. My honestly has gotten me into trouble more than once, but well, standing out is all about saying the things that need to be said – and doing it in style.

Write me a love song

Recently, I’ve earned my spot as a writer at my favourite 4-walled space in the whole world – my workplace. From being a molecular geneticist, to a stay-at-home mom, to a content writer – the graph has been certainly skewed. But, I’ve found my haven – this place that I belong to, and one that feels like a home, a friend, an escape and most of all, an absurdity of thought & action. And here, I’ve found my people. I’m so grateful to be a part of the dream team at Axis Vantage. You guys are the bomb.

I even have a chair christened ‘Crazy Diamond’. And, I can play all the Pink Floyd I want to. People sing along.
