I asked the writephoto challenge regulars if they would like to come over and introduce themselves. Today we meet Ashwini Nawathe from Kaleidoscope of my Life.
Without those of you who write and read the pieces inspired by the weekly photos, the writephoto prompt would not exist. So, if you follow or take part in the weekly challenge, why come over and introduce yourself too?
Being a regular does not mean taking part every week… so why not drop me a line?
Well, I always find it weird to talk about myself and I’m still struggling with it as I did for my first assignment for Buddhist Studies class. But here’s a sneak peek into my life.I’m a nature lover, a trekker and an ardent reader from Mumbai, India. After playing Lawyer for a time, I shifted to my passion and love – History! Acquiring a Masters degree in Ancient Indian Culture and Archaeology, I now work a 9 to 6 job as a Senior Executive (Research), and Content Writer for an Online Museum which helps me earn my bread and butter that is ultimately spent on travelling and exploring historical avenues. 😛
Being in my late 20s, I’m still trying to find my place in this world. I think as I get older, I’ll figure it out. But until then…the Kaleidoscope of My Life will continue to surprise me! J
As to my blog, I’m a tad bit of a crazy writer with lots of gumption. My inspiration for writing primarily comes from my grandmother who was an excellent poet and used to write regularly for Hallmark’s Marathi greeting cards. It was her dream to see my write-ups and blogs published. But been a bit of an introvert, I obviously said no and eventually got a few of my poems published as a eulogy to her. And since then I have never looked back. She wanted the world to read my words and that’s what I’m trying to do…Create a world of my words for her.
I’m really grateful to Sue for hosting the weekly #writephoto prompt challenge; because it’s her prompts that really do push me to try my hand at different genres in writing and make me come out of my conform zones. And I’m not just being modest or fake when I say; my blog has swelled in numbers of follows, likes and comments because of her and other awesome people who participate in her challenges and continue to show their love for my writing!
Thanks you fellas. Happy Blogging to you!
Sometimes I drift away
crossing the time limits
following the rivers way
or climbing the higher summits
Happily with the birds I fly
or join the wolves while they cry
Sometimes I like to be the sun
sole and aloof from everyone
The moon is my best friend at times
for I like to be with the loved one’s of mine
Occasionally like a pond of water
I sit uninterested, whatever the matter
Sometimes I am the waterfall
spraying drops of happiness on one and all
I can be as gentle as the winter sun
or a bolt of lightning as the tempers run
Do not try to understand
for I am as unpredictable as I am told
Do not try to stretch your hand
for drifting clouds you cannot hold….
