A-Z Challenge 2014


This post is the Theme Reveal for my A to Z challenge, 2014

 Ok.. Let me take a deep breath....... *taking a deep deep breath

What the heck have I got myself into? And Why?

I started my blogging journey few years ago. Learnt a lot. Some hits and some misses. But here I am today, a damn proud blogger, facing the world, daring it to ignore my words. Those same words which as a girl so many of my friends have said, those same words which many of my friends have mulled over a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Those same words which are often ignored by men just because we are women.

In a land where women are worshipped, I found myself coming across many women who have tales to tell. I smiled sadly and as I waved my motherland goodbye, I bid adieu to those stories, happy in my nutshell that it won't touch me anymore. I was in the Queen's land.. England.

Made friends and heard more stories. Met more women. The myth that the English ladies are better off than us... broke...  I made freinds with more abused women... some fighters and some .......

Travelling across the globe, I landed on the land of promised riches - The USA. A land where everyone lives in the illusion of not bieng a migrant. A land which is so progressive that people are ready to break even the laws just to stay in this country. And in this land some of us don't even have the right to work. We are the H4 Visas. The dependents.

The Flowers .......


Flowers and women - Video Maker

I cannot give them names. For they are the stories of you and me.  I take the name of Rose. As I travel around the globe I meet my kins... not by blood but by just being a woman......  And this is my theme... Each Letter opens a new flower - which spreads the story of a woman- for aren't we all a part of the same Bouquet....?
