About me.

Hi!

I am Shilpa Gupte. And, this blog is the abode of my thoughts.

I fell in love with words way back in college, where I unleashed the writer within me in the essays we were expected to write. However, with time,  this budding writer went into hibernation. Life took over. But, along the way, I met a friend, who caught a glimpse of that old spark in me and encouraged me to wield the pen all over again.

It has been nearly three years since I began writing seriously. I wasn't very tech-friendly then, so this blog is courtesy that lovely friend, who held my finger and led me into the blogosphere.

I have been a homemaker since after leaving my job as a school-teacher to take care of my family. However, I like to introduce myself as the mother of my Labrador Retriever son, Chikoo. He is my raison d'etre. The one soul, who is responsible for keeping me "afloat" from the moment he stepped into my world.

This is Chikoo. Isn't he  handsome ?


Many a post revolve around this bundle of fur, who has the ability to drive me insane with his histrionics, as well as turn me all mushy with just a look!

I have always loved writing about my feelings, about things I would love to be heard over the din that the world gets drowned in. And, thus this blog named, feelings.

Apart from Chikoo's tales and musings of my dreamy mind, I have attempted fiction, too.  I hope your visit here is enjoyable. I so hope you find something to take back with you, as a memento, perhaps; a little something that touches a chord, or brings about a few chuckles and brightens up your day!

Do let me know your thoughts about my feelings!

If you wish to contact me, here's my email id:    shilpaa.gupte1@gmail.com

Have a happy blog-tour!


Lots of love,

SHILPA...

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

The Wise Man Said - Book Review.

Book: The Wise Man Said.

Author: Priya Kumar.

Genre: Motivational.



The story in a nutshell: Sammy, an 80 year old billionaire, realises that the secret behind his success in life has been the various sacrifices he made along the way. One of the foremost being his neglect towards his family that rendered him a lonely soul bereft of a single person cheering him for his win in the race called 'life'. This realisation spurs him to leave behind his identity and money and participate in the life he missed out on. Eleven months in a year, he takes on a new identity and sets out to experience anything - even death - to participate in adventures across the world. All he carries with him are his curiosity and his willingness to experience anything that life may present him with.

The Wise Man Said is a collection of twelve stories from Sammy's adventures that he penned down in his diary; experiences from his exciting journey that left him feeling enriched and contented at a life well liv…

MOM - Film Review.

Starring: Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Director: Ravi Udyawar

Music: A.R. Rahman.

Rating: 4/5


Because God couldn't be everywhere, He created Mother. A line from the movie, it could very well sum up the movie for you. Sridevi couldn't have chosen a better subject for her 300th film. I haven't been a diehard Sridevi fan, but her last film, English Vinglish, changed my opinion of her and that's the reason I simply wanted to see MOM, right on the day it released.

MOM is emotional; MOM is electrifying; MOM is hard-hitting; MOM is riveting, right till the end.  In short, MOM is Sridevi. This could very well be the review in a nutshell, but there's more I would love to talk about.

Devki Sabarwal (Sridevi) is a school teacher, the kind one can never mess with, whoever you may be. However, at home, she struggles to bond with her 18 year old step-daughter, Arya (Sajal Ali). The quiet acceptance and the sensitivity with which she accepts the cold vibes she r…
