hail fellow, well met

Kaveetaa and I met on the net.. a stormy beginning it was..

Yet when two people meet and sparks fly.. it is always a good sign as out of the sparks emerges a mellow fire that brings warmth and good feelings..

And then I have always held that nothing in life is fortuitous.. maybe this fiery beginning had to happen so that things could take off faster and grow.. I was deeply moved when Kaveetaa invited to write on her blog and told me I was the first to be asked..

I hope to be able to share my dreams and hopes for India, my admiration for its incredible women, my pride in the work I do and maybe sometimes my despair..

I am indebted to Kaveetaa for having helped me make a course correction in my twilight years: that of bringing the good things in the limelight and turning the spotlight on them.. something I always preach but sometimes fail to follow..

Before I end this first post i would just like to share a quotation from a woman I admire:

"I always introduce myself as an encyclopaedia of defects which I do not deny. Why should I? It took me a whole life to build myself as I am."

Oriana Fallaci

I look forward to following what you both have to say--words of wisdom from the world's women are what I carry with me each day and have helped create who I am. What would we do without our (world) community of women?

Mapiprincesa,

we hope to kindle your interest in life and its vagaries, always, as it is meant to be.
