Hey there! I am so thrilled that you stopped by 🙂

My name is Mohini and I am currently taking a break from my career in pursuit of my other life goals. Originally from India, I grew up in Mumbai and moved to US to pursue my Master’s degree. After living in Indiana and New Jersey (and while traveling all over on red-eye flights owing to my consulting job) for a few years, I met my wonderful husband and we decided to make California our home base.

I started this blog to help me hone my writing and expression. I plan to use it as a space for documenting my journey while I go about smelling those proverbial roses. Let’s see where this goes! I am hoping that you will enjoy reading it.

Why Zen and Zany?

Because I think (and people who know me agree that) I am a healthy mix of both. The public persona is mostly zen but the more one knows me, the zany reveals itself.

I love to travel and I cannot decide what I find more exciting – the actual trip or planning for it. I spend seriously questionable amount of time researching and creating detailed itineraries for trips that I, oftentimes, do not even end up taking! Aside from that, I enjoy watching documentaries (almost anything goes!) and have a massive appetite for stand-up comedy.

It doesn’t take much for me to be happy. I am easily pleased with little things like a cup of hot chocolate, an idli sambar meal, roaming around in flea and farmer’s markets or a good massage.

If you made it till here, do drop me a line. I would love to hear from you! =)
