This is the third time that I am participating in the ‘Blogging from A-Z Challenge.’ My first time was in 2014 followed by the one in 2015. It opened doors to a world of new possibilities and connections from the blogosphere that I cherish to this day. However last year, in 2016, I had to skip…


Women’s Day With eWomen – Take the Leap!

When a certain portal approached me recently to write about them for their blog on the occasion of ‘International Women’s Day’ I was clueless on what exactly went into the thought behind women’s day.
