Transplanted into the Houston suburbs from the heart of Bangalore I have learnt to fondly call the suburb my home. I strive to do whatever all mommies do while  trying not to lose my mind. Despite of my undying love for Hindi soaps I enjoy watching PBS with my son.My boys truly bring out the best in me. I started this blog and my first online business in 2016 (and is still in the works). Its been a long undertaking especially being a mom and a wife. Please subscribe to our site and support us.

Thank you



Mr D

Avid supporter of human rights, gender equality and freedom of expression. Born and raised as an Indian national and now living in the US. Politically very neutral, but I do like taking sides if the agenda is ethical and for the good of everyone. Do not believe that reservations of any kind should be followed, however if any sections of the community is struggling, they could use some help to learn fishing and help them find the tools to continue fishing.

I have developed liking for creativity and talented individuals fascinate me. Materialistically, I develop Android apps, create simple websites, and fix computers and love working around the house. Still struggle with organizing my closet, but very comfortable and a confident team player at work and take pleasure in managing resources for projects.

Spiritualty is my sanity and truth. Religions and cultures are expressions of spirituality and I tend to keep away from too much expression as some of the expressions are outdated and have turned into a religious façade (superficial) which fuels extremisms leading to atrocities amongst religious and non-religious groups. I have tremendous respect for other’s beliefs and belief systems.

Shiva, Jesus, Alla, Waheguru, Ahura Mazda, Dios, Sun, etc, all these names just mean one thing for me that we like to believe in a Creator which is similar to use of words such as Lucht, Luft, Vzduch, hava, gaali, etc, which means Air in different languages.
