Finally! So after venturing into every social media platform there is and being completely obsessed with it, here I am posting my first blog! I don’t really know why it took me so long. Maybe because I had no idea what do I write about. Also maybe because I don’t think I am too much of a ‘writer’. I am a ‘talker’, ask me to talk about anything I have some idea about, and I will.
The other day I met a friend’s friend, it was a Saturday afternoon and we were sitting in this cozy cafe looking through the menu. I was hungry, I didn’t care too much about the conversation that was on. But some how I heard the word palmistry and I looked up through the big broad menu. “You read palms?! You know that stuff?” I asked. He was slightly taken aback since I hadn’t really spoken to him much. “Yes, kind of. I mean everyone in my family knows this. So i learnt too. But somewhat ha.” he said. “READ MY HAND!” I pulled out my hand and put a few inches away from his face. “Umm ok. Sure.” Then he spoke about some obvious things about how I am and what I will be. “Do you write?” he asked and paused. “Umm..no. I am not too much of writer. I suck at it actually.” I said awkwardly. “You should write you will be good at it.”
Really? I thought to myself and have been thinking about that since. I didn’t enjoy writing exams in school or assignment papers in college. I don’t like writing documents at work. But then I thought maybe if I write about what I love, I would be OK. I would be OK at writing about food! I am always thinking about it. I love to describe every meal I had or am going to have. My favourite shows are cooking shows and I watch almost every one of them (sometimes watch repeats). Even on a long Monday, I love to cook some dinner or bake something, I feel like all my stress has melted away. I might be borderline obsessed but I can’t really help it (I have tried).
So this is the story about why I am sitting here after a long day doing this. Planning to write about something I love. No teachers, no given topics, no seniors, no deadlines, no language control, writing about what I love the way I want.
I am also posting one of my favourite lunch pictures. It is a Seafood Thali that I had in Zambar, Pune. Quite lovely if you are a seafood lover.
Until next time!
