About Me



“Who am I? ” , the quintessential philosophical question which all great people of humankind have tried to answer.  I’ll give it a try too 🙂

I am a computer-science engineer by profession.  A book-lover and foodie by nature. A Saggi by birth, living in India. A traveler-traveler when I can and an armchair traveler on the other days. From a person who couldn’t cook to save her life I have recently transformed to an experimental cook.

This is my personal space. I also started a C++(tech) blog too recently. Like most others, I use my blog to review books, movies and to rant and rave. Basically, to un-clutter my mind and go back with a clear mind to work.  In short it is just an excuse to write.

Everyone of your ‘likes’ are appreciated. What I’d love even better is to hear from you. Your comments both good and bad, are welcome(Unless you are a spam bot).  You can even rate my posts and my readers comments.

If you liked reading this, please also check out my book-reviews on flipitall and my articles on start-ups on startcup

Happy Reading!

      The title of this song is Chiquitita. It is a ABBA song. You can click on the song and go to soundcloud from there. You can find more songs there.

      You have a lovely blog too. I loved your header photo and the tagline “TAKING CARE OF YOUR MOST PRECIOUS COMMODITY: YOUR HEALTH.” 🙂

      • Ah, ABBA! I knew it sounded familiar but I couldn’t place it. Thank you. I will click the soundcloud. Did you like my header tagline? You are the first to comment on it. I do get comments on the header photo from time to time. And your health IS your most precious commodity! ; – )

  8. Hey Sapna,

    We’re soon nearing the end of this year and stepping onto 2015. A lot happened across the blogosphere this year; I was amused to catch up on so many new events when I opened my Reader after a long hibernation. The beginning of this year and the last saw a bunch of us bloggers participating in a month long marathon. It was fun, crazy, exciting, hectic and absolutely insane. I thought we must continue with the tradition in the upcoming year as well. Would you like to join the madness this time too? Please drop me an email if you are interested at kamathseema1@gmail.com
