I am an avid reader and a wannabe regular writer. I use the excuse of family and work to explain my procrastination towards writing. My other avatars include experienced pharmaceutical scientist and novice mother (in spite of having one teenage drama queen (DQ) and one pre-teen princess). Coping strategies include yoga, long walks and deep breaths; meditation when all else fails. I am an Indian woman who has previously spent a long period of time in the USA. I now live in Singapore with my loving husband (HH) and family who provide the inspiration and fodder for this blog as I explore new personal and professional frontiers.
