Do you remember some of the posts that I did for Cinthol’s Alive is Awesome contest? There were some prizes associated with it. I was extremely reluctant in the beginning but the person who was in charge of the contest was one persuasive person. Once I committed I did all the posts that were required. And it was fun reliving some of those water filled memories.
So last week I was very pleasantly surprised when I got a mail saying I won an iPad! And the next day evening I got the iPad too!
This is my first Apple product. Daughter considers it her tab. I get to use it in between sometimes. May write more if I get to use it more. Have to say I never expect to win! And among all the thing iPad was what I was eyeing most!
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
