What can I say about myself. I’m Maria, an architect by profession, Mom to a five year old, married to a wonderful man and “I’m living in GOA”. I don’t want to brag but what can I say ! I’m the luckiest women in the world :) So far Life has been good and Praise the Lord for that. Yes I’m a spiritual person with a secular mentality. I blog about humanity, nature and peace. I’m not the typical Indian house wife who loves to cook (Although my husband worships my cooking and thats enough for me) Love to hang out on holidays, watch movies and enjoy with my friends and family because thats what people do in Goa. With this blog, I just want to share my experiences and my thoughts with you guys.
