I'm a wanderer, forever in search of new books to read, new crafts to make, new languages to learn! I speak Telugu, English, Hindi fluently, and a little bit of French and German. I like to watch the sunlight filtering through the window, casting a golden glow on my tea mug and book, and the feel of paper against my skin. I admire beauty in ordinary things, travel and art journalling.
I honestly don't know where to begin. I devour books, anything that looks interesting in some way, and I see something nice in almost every book I read. I enjoy reading the 'underdogs' as they somehow seem to speak to me on a deeper level. Books are my best buddies!
'Few' of my favourites : All the light we cannot see, the Giver series, Hyperbole and a half, The storied life of A J Fikry, Through the woods, The little Prince, Nimona, the Book thief, Captain Underpants!, Throne of Glass, The Glass Castle, Matilda, Bridge toTerabithia, The Silver Star, A tree grows in Brooklyn, Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma, Love among Bookshelves, Swallowing Mercury, Sputnik Sweetheart
I love to experiment with any medium / material I can get my hands on. In the past, I have worked with acrylic paints, watercolours, charcoal, oil pastels, pencil, yarn, handbuilding pottery, modern calligraphy, linocut stamps, woodcut stamping, glass jar decoration, repurposing, illustration, bookbinding, origami, and ZINES!
P.S. : I am a hopeless Zine Enthusiast.
I am a total foodie. I love to cook, and eat almost all the time, I'm always on the lookout for for new simple recipes that I can try. In fact, I love experimenting so much, I never make the same recipe twice because I keep tweaking the recipe to see what it would taste like if I swapped an ingredient for another, or introduced a new ingredient. Love tea AND coffee( never really understood the concept of an exclusively Tea/ Coffee person!) South Indian Cuisine is Comfort Food.
I have a collection of glass jars, washi tape, penpal letters, watercolours, art books, travel souvenirs, illustrations, and small trinkets.
A few things I like : ZINES!!,Typewriters, Maps, Illustrations, neutral, muted and pastel colours, handmade goods, Fabric samples, postcards, bookmarks, packaged/ empty tea bags!, Botanical / Cactii, Inchies, pretty brochures, space or constellation themed stuff, Book themed stuff, nice paper clips( I have a thing for rose gold paper clips!), and scrapbook paper!
You've got mail, Roman Holiday, anything by Benedict Cumberbatch or Eddie Redmayne, The sound of Music, Mary Poppins, The sixth sense, Home alone, Ratatouille!!
Friends, The Office(US), Gilmore Girls!!, Game of Thrones, Parenthood, Naruto, Playful Kiss( K-drama), City Hunter( K-drama), Master Chef Junior
Indie is my favourite genre of music, and my favourite singers are Prateek Kuhad and Ankur Tewari. I dig the Beatles, Amr Diab, Tarkan, and Ed Sheeran too! Always ready to explore new music(well all except heavy metal), because you never know which corner a treasure of a song might come floating in. New surprise favourite: "Udd gaye" by Ritviz, an EDM track that I am totally addicted to.
