My blogs are about my PhD journey, its challenges and how I deal with these challenges in my life. I do also write and keep record of my travelling experiences - travel for work purposes and personal trips.  I also write about my life outside PhD - which is full of different activities such as, blogging, socializing, cooking healthy food and desserts and workout. Through my blogs, I wish to convey the message of motivation and progress in a scholar's life and how life outside PhD can be manageable and fun.
