Who is this Goddess Person Anyway?

Who is this Goddess person anyway? Ah, I’m glad you asked. You see, my parents named me after not one but two Hindu Goddesses and when I call myself The Goddess, I’m just translating my name. Also, it’s a little like the Advaitic world view. I am me but I’m also The Goddess.

At a more prosaic level, here’s some basic info about me. I’m a 30+ software engineer who lives in Chennai with her husband (The Hero) and son (Chotu Singh). I mostly write about whatever catches my fancy.

Here are some random facts about me:

  1. I’m perpetually late for everything because I try to time things down to the last second. Obviously, that doesn’t work and is not very good for having any kind of relationship.
  2. I over-think the simplest things and then blog about them. Halfway through the post I realize that I have some very first-world-problems like too much help or too many clothes and I feel thoroughly ashamed of myself. I then feel guilty for feeling guilty leading to posts like these and so the cycle continues until I write posts like these and clear out the gloom.
  3. My guilty pleasures are fashion magazines and lifestyle blogs like Cupcakes and Cashmere and Cup of Jo. Then I promptly balance that out by going to GOMI and reading comments about these blogs. Then I feel guilty for spending so much time on something so useless and read Slashdot instead.
  4. My guilt-free pleasure is dark chocolate.
  5. I’m still making up my mind about what I want to be when I grow up…

If you’d like to know more about me, I’ve dedicated reams megabytes of space here to describing myself.

    I have been following ur blog for about 3 yrs now… and for me its like an experience of seeing an older sister grow, get restless before marriage and finally getting married and almost settling down in life. Its a rare glimpse of a mature woman’s heart. (I am one of those guys without female influence in life whatsoever but luckily not a MCP).
    In simple two words “U rock” !..! … plz continue blogging… 🙂

    P.S.: Don’t bother about taking a look at my blog… it sucks in comparison to yours, and moreover I stopped writing on it about 2 yrs ago….

  2. I have been quietly reading your blog and keeping up with your personal life for the past couple of years. I feel like a stalker at this point so I thought I should at least say Hi!
    I love your writing style. Its conversational and relatable, oh and I totally ship you and The Hero.. Keep posting more please! <3
