Hope Unites Globally: HUG Award

Numerous predictions and speculations have been made about the fate of world. Some say the world will end in 2012….. Will it? I HOPE not because there is so much left to achieve….

Each one of us has so many dreams for ourselves and for our kids…..Its hope which gives us strength to face the numerous challenges that life throws at us. World today is divided over religion, color, beliefs, territory, caste, financial status and what not. The only thing that is common in people world over is Hope. Hope to have love, success, fame, happiness and peace. Yes, Hope does unite all of us globally!!

I have hopes to provide a secure and happy future for my daughter, to grow old and walk hand in hand with my beloved husband, to look after the needs of my aging parents and of course to be read and appreciated!!

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....
