Archana Pai Kulkarni’s Blog

I am a people’s person and this blog is about the people who have touched my life, in ways that I could never have imagined. I wrote my first poem when I was child. It was about my doll–my constant companion, listener and confidante. As I grew up in a large, extended family, at every step, I met people, who left deep impressions on me, some so unforgettable that even today I can draw from this storehouse of rich memories and tell their stories.

For 17 years,  I edited a women’s monthly magazine called New Woman and wrote my own column, Gut Reaction, dealing with political, social, women’s and children’s issues. I took a conscious decision to leave my day job and work on a larger canvas–my novel, while pursuing my other passions–yoga and nutrition.

I’ve tried my hand at amateur theatre and a blink-and you-miss-it cameo in a Bollywood film.

I’m a walker and saunterer.  l love exploring new places–the sights, sounds and smells of a place–on foot. I enjoy cooking, and home-made food. I have a deep interest in the process of writing and am an unabashed stalker of writers and books. My recurring fantasy is about backpacking in the wilderness, living both in a tree house at Vengurla in Konkan and a cave in the Himalayas, growing my own food, and learning the language of the birds.

My motto: Life is simple. Don’t complicate it. Be natural.

I constantly wonder: What would this world be without people?

I invite you to read these people stories, share your own and connect with me.
