About me

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I'm a writer, poet, wonderer, teacher, nature lover, amateur photographer, wife and mother. 

I live in Doha, Qatar, with my husband and a dozen trees I planted in my patch of green. Our children, now adults, have fled the nest. Nature, birds, the neem and mulberry trees, feminism, kindness, travels, poetry and politics inspire me to write. So, I do.

Last year, I published my first book. It's called: 'And all the seasons in between'. It's a childhood memoir woven with fantasy. The book has received great reviews. It's available on Amazon.

Some of my poems and stories  have been published in anthologies and literary journals like 'Mohini' in The Kali Project, 'Jamun Tree' in Kindle Magazine, 'Kingdom of Kitchen' in Tea with a Drop of Honey and 'A Fully Functional Feminist' in Gulmohur Quarterly

I have also performed some of my spoken word pieces and stories on well known platforms like Mirchi Mehfil. These pieces have received impressive viewership, especially Wibbly Wobbly Belly which has had 83 K views so far. Some of my other spoken word pieces are as follows:

I endeavour to continue writing and sharing on my blog and strive to get published in literary journals.

I'm working on a book of poems and a couple of short stories at the moment.

Thank you for stopping by.  I'd love to hear your views about my work.

  1. Hi, I'm the writer on SomeSmallSolitude who you emailed last month. I'm sorry I didn't reply, I actually thought no emails came to that account so I don't check it often so I'm not disappointed when there aren't any messages. I replied to you but the email bounced. I hope this doesn't mean you've stopped writing. I think you are extremely talented and really enjoyed your writing. Thank you for your email, it was a boost on a low day. Love x

    1. Hi. I'm so glad to have connected with you. I was travelling most of September, so haven't done any writing. Hope to be a regular reader of SomeSmallSolitude.


I would love to hear from you. Please leave your thoughts and comments here.
