Sayali says...

Hello everyone! The  "Feel" week of my Monsoon Blog Fest begins. I will have a new person each day, to share their wonderful views with us.
So as an opening post, we have with us today Sayali Dharmadhikari.
Sayali was willing enough to share a little bit of her thoughts with all of us.
Let us see what she has got to say!

Me: Tell us something about yourself. What do you do?
Sayali: What do I do? I read, I write, I appreciate art, I am connoisseur of music. Professionally, I am done with Bachelors of Pharmacy from Mumbai University and I am heading to Wright State University in the city of Dayton, Ohio, USA to pursue Master’s in Pharmacology and many would not believe, but I do plan to come back..! ;)

Me: Tell me any one incident in your life from which you have learnt something.
Sayali: Well, this is not some past incident. It’s happening to me right now even at this moment when I am thinking about this question, I am getting calls and whatsapp messages from friends asking for my time and day of flight, planning my farewell along with gifts (hopefully ;) ) my mom is frantically making besan laddoos and going gaga about how she forgot to teach me theplas,  my dad is worrying if my bags would weigh more than 23Kgs and if I would be able to fill the immigration form properly, my brother and cousins are checking in on me, I am meeting this school teacher (Sadhana teacher; all smiles) who is visibly happy about my venture,I am realizing how little time we have, to spend with those people who mean so much to us. I am finding myself trying to grab all the loose ends, at once. 

Oh there are so many things I wanted to gossip, so many lovely dresses I wanted to buy, play lawn tennis on that PS at Korum Mall., wanted to have so many sleep-overs with my friends,wanted to be a part of the “Dhol-Taashe Pathak” during Ganpati festival

Not that I am going for an exile..not that I won’t make new friends..not that I won’t go on adventure trips in an altogether new country. But, well, I have just realized that we all should give a few hours of our lives to the people who really want to see us and who cherish our company. Time is short..lives can change in span of spend time with those whom you value..!   

Me: One thing you love about our country and one thing which you don't?  (since it is August, the independence day month)
Sayali: The thing I love about my country—
Slowly but surely, the youth is taking charge. Once considered naïve and ignorant, today we are the power. I hope the youth progresses, takes the right path and works wonders. I hope we always strike the right cord and help this nation cherish it’s Independence from malice. I am so glad that today, we know for real that “A pen is mightier than a sword”.

The thing I don’t like—
Illiteracy and poverty.
Some might think, “Oh! That’s such a cliché”
Exactly! And that’s the point. We have let these problems prevail for so long that they have now become a cliché. I think, we need to uproot them at the earliest.

Me: Any memorable incident related to monsoon?
Sayali: Well, there are a few I used to enjoy as a child.
We used to wait and wait and run to the terrace at the first sign of rain drops to enjoy the ‘The First Rain’. That used to mark an unofficial get-together of an entire building. Inventing new ‘Rain-special’ games, splashing water and of course, paper boats formed an important part.
There was also this new game I am reminded of- we used to have a competition of spotting maximum number of good-looking umbrellas from our terrace. :D

My Note:

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together to welcome none other than Gaurav Ghatnekar! Today we have with us a handsome hunk who is a talented Marathi and Hindi actor, famous for his movies like "Tujhi Majhi Love Story" and shows like "Tuj Vin Sakhya Re" among many others. He
has recently been essaying the role of Lord Krishna to perfection in a popular Hindi show called Dharmakshetra on Epic Channel.

Back after a game of squash, in a candid chat with me, he answers some of my questions-

Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.

  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
