Hi, I am Shalvika. Professionally, I’m an engineer. Besides that, I love reading, watching movies andΒ theater. I myself have participated in a couple of theater productions. I’m a trained kathak dancer. I believe that music lets you breathe. I believe books are the best thing that happened to the human race. I believe in freedom. In letting people be what they want to be. I want to explore a lot of things in life. Learn a lot of things, read a lot, watch a lot, enjoy whatever life brings my way and just, live it to the fullest.

Here on this blog, I’m gonna try to jot down some of my thoughts. Some of them are things that happen to me, some of them are just figments of my imagination and the rest of them are what I feel and think about things. I have loved reading all my life and really wanted to try my hands at writing. So this is my attempt at that.

    It’s great to see another random, crazy person on Word Press. Are you by chance, a Gemini? Thanks for following me and welcome to the wonderful world of blogging where unicorns fly from the sky and dreams really do come true! Just kidding about the unicorns. I’m looking forward to reading more of your work!

    Shalvika, you found my blog and so I found yours. I’m just back from a trip to California, exhausted and jet lagged, but I saw your kind note and decided to visit your blog. So glad I did. You are an amazing writer. I am staggered by the talent here. I am following with great pleasure and am so glad we connected. Tom

    Hello there Shalvika. I really enjoyed reading your posts. Happy Blogging first of all. πŸ˜€
    I would like to make you a request to join a writers’ forum/e-magazine that I am a part of. Please send me an email saying that you are Shalvika and I will tell you the details & you can then decide whether you want to be a part of it or not. It will be really nice if you could share some of your musings there as well as here πŸ˜€

    Shalvika, I love your fiction. It’s hard to believe you’re an engineer as well! (No offense to engineers, but I can’t imagine the ones I know being dancers and writers too).

      Oh, absolutely none taken, Susan! I work with engineers, I’ve studied with them and I know exactly what you mean. Believe me, they are a boring lot πŸ˜›
      And I’m happy that you like my fiction! Thank you πŸ™‚

    What I find so wonderful about blogging, Shalvika, is that a 22-year-old and a 63-year-old can read each other’s blogs and find common ground or enjoyment. It is refreshing to see the world through a young person’s eyes again, and I am looking forward to following your posts. Thanks for discovering me!

      I know exactly what you mean Susan! That’s just amazing.
      Btw, I think I’m the only Shalvika Patil in the world as well! So that is another thing we have in common. πŸ˜›

    By the way, my father was an engineer, and my son-in-law is an engineer. What kind of engineering do you practice?

      Jul 10, 2012 @ 20:26:30

      I am an electronics engineer by qualification. But I work in a mechanical engineering oriented job. So I’m a pretty hybrid engineer at the moment! πŸ˜›

    I really like your name, I am thinking of naming my daughter too. Do you know its meaning and send me the story of its origin, I couldn’t find that King’s story.
