Hi, I am Ruchira Shukla. Better known as Ruch to my friends ! I live in an urban jungle but my heart is in the mountains. I have two simple aims in life, to travel and to write. And to support these two activities I also work at a boring corporate job!
I have a masters degree in Japanese and although I live in New Delhi now, I have been associated with the Land of the Rising Sun for the past 10 years in one form or the other.
Traveling, exploring different cultures and learning languages is a passion and so is literature.
Since I love to travel, you will find lot of travelogues here. The travel posts are interspersed with posts on literature, reminisces, humorous anecdotes with a little bit of fiction and Haiku thrown in as well.
I like to think of this blog as a happy place, rather like a welcoming, warm and cozy room with a bright fire in the hearth and comfortable couches strewn all around, so that who ever enters it will never want to leave !
Of course Readers only stay if they get good stuff to read and I try to improve my writing skills every day through this space.
And for those curious ones who want to know why I have chosen Nirjharini as my Blog Name, you can got through this page !
