Did you miss me? Seriously, did you miss me? I hope the answer is “yes” and not “who is she again?”
If you’re reading this post, I made it through the wedding without accidentally tripping on my clothes, falling on my face and breaking all my front teeth. I know that sounds specific and unlikely but walking around all day in Indian clothes has reminded me how difficult it is to navigate yourself in Indian clothing. Especially when you’re trying to walk through a crowd and dodge people you know like a football player. I could be a quarterback after this experience. To be honest, I know nothing about American football so that comparison might be absolute crap. But I’m bougie so let’s just say it’s cràpe.
I have some wonderful news today. And that is, the poetry anthology that I had the privilege of being a part of has an official release date. It’s coming out on January 31st. You can order it either as paperback or on Kindle by clicking here. This is my first endeavour with something like this. And it’s the first poem by me that has ever been officially published. So, I would truly appreciate it if you supported me and my writing by ordering this book. And it’s not just me, so many amazing poets have contributed. I am sure you’ll love each poem. If you do order it and read my poem, do let me know what you think. Edit: The book is now a #1 Amazon Bestseller! 😱
That’s all for today folks. I’m exhausted. My posting, activity etc will be back to normal next week.

Were you in a sari? (I’m sorry, that’s all I know about Indian outfits) Congratulations for making it through the wedding, it can be tough in all corners and congratulations! That’s amazing that the book is doing well and you’re in it.
No, I wore a choli instead. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choli ) Thanks so much!
Ah, okay. I forgot about those. Those look pretty.☺️
Thank you 😊
I’m glad that you are okay, Pooja! It’s always nice to see your posts in my inbox. Be well. ☺️
Thank you so much! 😊
You are welcome. ☺️
Missed ya and you got the reference to football correctly. 😊 So happy you made it through the wedding! And yay you on your published poetry!!! How wonderful and exciting!!! Congratulations!!!🎉
Thanks and yay can’t believe I actually made a sports reference that worked lol 😂
That’s awesome, congrats on publishing your poem!!
Thank you so much!
Hello! Welcome back! Yes, I missed your posts. Congratulations! On the book. It’s great you made it through the wedding. Get you some rest. Have a great week.
Thank you so much, I’m so happy to be back. Have a great week too.
JK, Congrats on the publication! I ordered it!
As for the football reference, it depends on which Quarterback, but it works lol. Though no QB has had to dodge with Indian wedding clothes lol.
Lolll can’t believe I got a sports reference right, I was like prepared to get roasted in the comments 😂 I can guarantee you that football players wearing Indian clothes while playing would make the sport a million times more interesting.
Yes, I definitely missed my favourite blogger. 🌟
Glad to see you back 😁🔙
I would like to see the pics, maybe through a blog based on it 🤔.
I will check out the book for sure.
I wonder if it’s available in india, but then there’s kindle 🙂🔆
Rest well 🦇
Thanks! I’m waiting on the pics and will be posting them as soon I get them 😊
I believe the book is available in India as well but yes check Kindle if the paperback version is unavailable.
I will wait
And also will check out the book on Amazon here. 🙌🏻
Congrats, Pooj! surviving the wedding is a huge accomplishment. I am dying to hear all the gossip. Weddings are best occasions to make everyone mad like football games when your team is losing. I enjoyed the comparison, two teams trying to beat each other: the bride’s and the groom’s clans clash in a battle LOL I can envision that, no, in reality I can’t but I would love to… Yes, please, pictures will be highly appreciated. Thank you!
2 teams trying to beat each other
But in the wedding how we will decide the winner? 😝
You know in Indian wedding, there’s a healthy competition between girls’ sides and boys’ side.
Girls’ side often tries to hide the footwear of groom, and if they succeed they demand money for returning it. More such things happen. 😅
Hey, I also wanted to ask if your site is still active?
Because I cannot access it.
Life I tried tapping on your site, but it’s showing cannot retrieve the posts. It’s showing nothing
it should work, wordpress is wonky sometimes
I tried to tap the name of site
It’s saying author has deleted the site.
However, I search for it, and followed you.
I will read your work peacefully later 🙂
Thanks! I don’t know what’s wrong with my account. I will try to fix it
I hope that 🙂
Best wishes 🇺🇦
The website domain linked to your username is different. I think you just need to update it in settings on “My Profile” and that should fix it.
Will do it right now, thank you so much
Thanks again! It’s fixed now
No worries, glad it’s fixed!
Haha yes, there was so much drama I am excited to share some of it here with you guys lol. And pictures coming soon, I’m just waiting to get them myself!
Welcome back Pooja 😋and a big congrats.. For making it through the wedding and for the book release 🤍
Thank you so much, happy to be back! 😊
Congratulations on your poem publication. What an achievement! You go, girl. Express yourself in the most beautiful way…
Thank you so much, I am so excited for the book. This is my first ever published writing so it’s extra exciting.
but of course….. YESSSSSSSSSSS
Of course, I missed your post Pooj. Not falling at a wedding is definitely an accomplishment I fell at mine, and I was just standing still. The excessive alcohol the night before and the bright lights I was under didn’t help.
Thanks. Lol, yeah I can understand. I was like that at the afterparty because the wedding itself was completely dry so no alcohol.
Of course! Your post are one of the biggest highlights of my week. Glad you survived the wedding and congrats on the poetry. I plan to write some poems this week 🙂
Aw thanks so much, I look forward to your poems 🙂
Congratulations on surviving the wedding and the publication of your poem. The bob and weave skill could be used in many sports😉.
Thank you so much. Yes, I will be adding professional sports player to my resume now 😅
Talking about wedding, I just got to know yesterday that a friend of mine is getting married, I am feeling like I am more nervous than her😅😅
Omg congratulations to her! Lol that’s how it was when one of my besties got married 😂
Haha.. Thanks by her side💛
You’re welcome and yes stay by her side 😊
For sure! 😊
I’m glad you made it through the wedding. Can’t wait to have your posting activity back on line. Welcome back
Thank you so much, I am so happy to be back. I missed blogging lol.
We are glad to have you back
Good luck for the book!
Thank you so much!
Lookijg forward to seeing the pictures of the wedding. And congratulations on your anthology. 🥰🥰🥰
And yes we’ve missed you
Thank you so much, I’ve missed everyone here too 😊
Models have tripped and fallen on the runway. Glad you’re back and survived hazards.
Yeah, so true. Some of those fashion shows have crazy outfits. Thanks.
Great news your publication! I like it!
I don’t miss you…not because i hate you, but because it was only a weekend…
Thank you! Lol, that’s fair.
Thanks so much!
Yay, welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the wedding despite having to dodge people you knew here and there, lol.
Thank you! Lol, yeah it was great except that.
You’re welcome, and congratulations on the book! Well deserved!
Yes pooja, I definitely missed your blog posts in the morning (as per our time zone). I love wearing Indian outfits and luckily I’ll be attending a wedding in February.
Would love to see you in Indian outfits. And dodging people randomly ad tripping on clothes at weddings is a real struggle.
Thank you so much! Yes, Indian outfits are fun although a lot of trouble to deal with sometimes lol.
Makes me remember when the Sari was a hot pop culture article of clothing for basic white women who tried Chicken Tikka “that one time”. I’m sure it’s comfortable to lounge around in but doesn’t seem practical for suburban America lol
Lol, I think it’s still a thing among a specific group of white women. It’s most definitely not comfortable to lounge in anywhere. Like I avoid saris so much although I guess I’m too young to wear them anyway.
I think they’re pretty, don’t get me wrong, but I can understand why traditional clothing from any culture would be uncomfortable. It’s usually made to look beautiful at the cost of the time it takes to put on and take off. Haha.
I was in Hapkiido (Korean karate, basically) in my teen years and I remember putting on a gi was one of the more annoying parts of my day. That’s not even close to as intricate as actual traditional garb usually is!
Yeah agreed, I think traditional clothing is beautiful but personally wearing it is not always fun lol.
Welcome back! Great to know you made it through the wedding weekend! And congratulations on your inclusion in the poetry anthology. I enjoyed your poem from a few days ago, “Brooding of a Lost Soul.” Way to go!
Thanks so much! So glad you enjoyed that poem.
forget you Pooja? How ever would we forget you girl. I wanna see those pics of you in your Indian get up being tackled on the dance floor.. lol.
Soooo happy you are in the anthology and congratulations!!!! It’s just awesome. Waiting for my copy! 💗
Lol pics coming soon 😂 Thank you! 😊
Woow, congrats!! For surviving an Indian wedding in Indian clothes but most of all for the poetry anthology! That’s such an amazing achievement!!
Thank you so much!!
I did miss you a lot. Congratulations on the wedding, I always like Indian clothing, they look colourful and beautiful. Another feather to your cap on your poem. Absolutely Beautiful ❤️
Thank you so much 😊 Yes, Indian clothes are very vibrant 💕
I’ve worn a saree and palazzo suit. Actually danced in the saree. Fun times.
Glad you made it back to us in one piece. 😁
Whoo, bestseller! Congrats. 👏
Thanks so much! 😊
Welcome back Pooj. Congrats again on the published poem. About the wedding, I think it would be fun to see some pictures of you and some of the wedding if available.
