For those of you who know me or have ever known me or would like to know me;) I would probably be the last person on your mind to have started a blog. I was certainly the last person on mine! But strange things happened, I started reading….A LOT, which eventually gave me the initiative to write…A LOT. Soon I started ignoring work and spent the office hours writing non-stop, till one day I was urged to make it public and hence here I am today.
I am an Indian girl with the aim to create my unique stamp in the world of fitness and wellbeing with the intention of joining the race to fight cancer. A world that is pretty male dominated. A world that has suspicious reactions towards anything associated with the likes of exerting any more energy than required.
I have a dream of building a successful foundation when I should be dreaming of marriage. I have a dream of facing reality and working towards being one of the best cancer exercise trainers out there, when I should be dreaming of being the best wife to my husband. I have a dream of exposing myself to the bitterness and sad realities of life to fight my personal inner demons, when I should be dreaming of acquiring a rich husband and secured financial wealth for the rest of my life. This is the dilemma an Indian girl faces. At 27 I have well surpassed the marriage bracket. I might not represent the typical Indian girl but we damn well have these notions ingrained in us.
So I’m breaking the pattern and fighting the dilemmas. No I am not getting married, no I am not thinking of becoming a billionaire or marrying one but I’m standing up against what I fear the most, which destroyed my life and took the most precious person away from me. Maybe this is one of my many ventures that I plan out for myself or maybe it’s my destined future (my family have their doubts in good reason) and we’ll soon find out, but till then I write this blog, not solely to spread awareness, or to be an articulate writer by any means (as you can see) or make a successful business out of it, but to share my journey. I want to try and find answers to a better life through exercise and a clean diet and show whoever is out there that we can win this battle and hear the music.
I also promise not to be so serious ever again!!!
