No posts?

In case you are wondering why Devika isn't blogging for the past few weeks, it's because her parents have not found time to "type in" her posts.

Hope they read this...and oblige :)

Bucket List

For the past few days, I have been thinking of creating my Bucket List. Had some interesting discussion with my friends to find out the things which they would want to put in their bucket list (some of the wishes were hilarious and cannot be shared here).

There are some things which I know I definitely would want to do before I die. Have decided to restrict my list to only 10 items as of now (it could be the effect of the movies I have seen on this topic).

Here are a few of my bucket list items :
1. Driving a Formula 1 car
2. Writing a book
3. Having my own photography exhibition
4. Running a half marathon with sub 2 hour timing
5. Owning a beach house

Some look impossible, don't they? What the heck, if they are easily acheivable, then no fun.

There are five more to add....the thinking process is on.......

India's youngest blogger?

Devika is 6 and a half years old.

Stays in Mumbai.

Got inspired to blog when she her mom started her own blog.

She writes her thoughts on a piece of paper, and daddy dear types it for her.

It's called Rabbit Hops.

It's amazingly refreshing and very cute.

Take a look. It will definitely remind you of your childhood :)

The Photo Connection

For the last year and a half, I have been trying my hand at photography.

While different people have different things to say about the photos I click (the ones who know about photogrpahy have lots of things to say of course :)), there were a few things which really touched me.

For example, I saw one of my friends using one of the pictures I had clicked as her laptop wallpaper. I was pleasantly surprised that she would think it good enough for a wallpaper.

Another friend wanted to put up some of my pictures on the "photo wall" she planned for her new house. Very flattering again !!

The last but not the least was when a friend said she found the nature pics of mine very soothing and peaceful and looked at them when she was upset or low. I seriously did not know how to react to this. This was far more that I had expected and it really took me by surprise. One never can expect what different things can mean to different people.

Maybe I should stop being so lazy and take this hobby of mine a little more seriously.

Also, now that I am working on my bucket list, maybe ..just maybe..I should think about having my own photogrpahy exhibition sometime in the future.

Sounds like a target, doesn't it :))
