Yeah..i have been thinking a lot about blogging for a while..but then couldnt decide on what particularly i should blog..I love reading a lot..right from magazines..short stories..story books..newspapapers a lot…writing poems..(offcourse reading a lot too)a avid follower of day – day news ..have a great passion for Indian cooking ..and now a great deal trying a lot of recipes for my Two year old Son…
