Who am I…?

Who am I?

No, not

A perfect daughter,

or a perfect sister,

neither a perfect wife,

nor a perfect mother.

And I am not,

a perfect friend either!!

But, I know every time

That my father,

knocks on my door,

an extension of his

….that I am.

That my mother,

hugs and smiles,

apple of her eye

….that I am.

That my sister,

is annoyed,

her closest ally

….that I am.

That my husband,

pours his heart out,

an easy companion

….that I am.

That my daughter,

runs into my arms,

her immense faith

….that I am.

That a friend,

calls me up,

a patient listener

….that I am.

I am all of that,

yet the heart asks …

Who am I?


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
