About Me

Hello all visitors!

I am an ordinary person, who likes to travel, see and experience new people and places, loves good food and loves images. My entire philosophy and worldview are encompassed in just one sentence – never consciously try to do any harm to others – but of course, just like others, I too fail in this…

This blog is about all that I experience as I go through my life in this world. This may relate to people I meet, their cultures and customs, photographs I take, places I visit, good food I come across, my own perceptions – biased and unbiased and anything else that I may want to share with the world.

Feel free to share your responses and keep visiting!

    Hello Archana,
    It’s such a pleasure to meet you and visit this site-and additionally, the South Asian Arts Journal-another quality site. I’ve traveled several times to the Himalaya, and it constantly calls me back…these are wonderful photos and writings…I’ll be returning often!

    Dear Mr. Ramalingam,
    Thanks for your offer, but this is a personal blog and doesn’t deal with the kind of posts you have suggested. Hence, it won’t be possible to have your guest post along those lies.

    Thanks for your interest in my blog.

    Regards,
    Archana

    Dear archanablogging,

    My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
    ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in United States, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
    Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

    Best regards,
    Joyce
