About

One day (about three years ago now), I sat in the studio which was my office, waiting for the top of the hour so I could read the news, and enjoying John Legend’s ‘Refuge’ (which I must confess I was playing more for myself than for the benefit of my listening audience). While I waited I flipped through my mail and saw something on the benefits of hot liquids which a friend had forwarded to me. Normally I do not appreciate forwarded mails but today I thank her.The mail was on how hot liquids (as opposed to cold ones) increased longevity by helping the faster breakdown and digestion of food, how it was the practice of the Chinese to drink hot liquids with every meal, etc. I wanted to share this piece of information with loads of people but I didn’t want to forward it so I decided I would tell it like a story. And then I thought, why not just add what I was doing when I saw the mail, why not add all I’d been doing all day, why not add this, why not add that and that was how the Chronicles of the Fairy God Sister was born.

Truth is, the name Fairy God Sister came for two reasons;
1. I needed a name that wouldn’t restrict me to anything (fashion, health, travels, relationships, etc)
2. I was providing an escape route for myself in case people didn’t like the article. Then I’d just say, ‘I didn’t write it’, I saw it somewhere!

That chronicle was posted on facebook and the response was very encouraging; so encouraging I’ve been writing ever since! I’ve delved into poetry too, contributed to various media (both print and virtual) and I’m even on the verge of finishing a book I started eons ago.

The Fairy God Sister is ageless, immortal, and all knowing. She likes to travel, learn new things, write, and most of all, loves a good laugh! She is and can write on issues relating to fashion, art, love, family, education, societal ills, etc.
