Welcome to my site! I’m Shweta, a blogger residing in Bangalore. Here’s a little bit about me:
Psychologist by day.
Poet by twilight.
Asleep by midnight.
I’ve been many things in her short life – software professional, teacher, writer, counsellor, theatre artist and poet. I prefer to be a Jill of some trades and a Mistress of some. Above all, I believe in doing everything out of love.
Poetry found me when I was an awkward, unsocial teenager and has come and gone since then like waves at the beach of the coastal town my ancestors come from. I’m a Bangalorean, and much like the traffic here, poetry has sometimes forced me to slow down, cultivate patience and just go with the flow.
I write in traffic, on flights and just after baths. I write on diverse topics, but all my poems are rooted in personal experiences or observations. Being a psychological counsellor, I am a firm believer in the awesomely therapeutic and life-changing value of writing and listening to poetry.
