Life at Work

Interviews, Blogs, Reviews, Insights, Experiences…

I write about a lot of stuff. Expat experiences, parenting nightmares, cultural faux pas, reviews (I have a lot of opinions), journalistic essays.

My interviews have been tele/broadcast at HuffPost Live (World Parents),  KUOW (The Record), KBCS, Homefront Chronicles.

So now that we’ve established I have a lot to say, here are a few posts you may enjoy.

I hope you enjoy these stories.

Expat Experiences

‘Million Dollar Arm’ and Thoughts of Home: My personal reflection on the movie that follows the journey of two underdogs from a Cricket crazy nation into the sensational world of Baseball. For the complete story, click  here. 

Adjusting My Expatriate Indian Family to Seattle: Our story of stumbling through a world where English is different from English! The full story is here.

Bringing up a Child in a Different Culture:

Birds, Bees and Underpants: I was shocked when a 4-year-old boy came up to my daughter and mentioned the distinguishing physical body part that makes her a girl. After recovering from the shock and coming to terms with our new reality, things looked a lot different. To read the complete story, click here.

Reviews and Event Coverage:

Theater and Other Performances: I love theater. I am a closet drama queen and my daughter is drama personified. So we have great fun exploring various plays and theaters.

Since the little lady is also a ballerina and circus artist, we attend Ballets and shows across Seattle just so she can observe her craft in action! Here’s a link to the performance reviews (not -HR related) I’ve done.

I also follow all things Indian and review the shows and events I can attend. To read more, click right here!

Expat Consultation

I’ve stumbled and learnt to navigate a new city (I am topographically challenged), a new culture and a new set of rules – mostly traffic related, schooling system and a whole new world of unlearning. So I try and help fellow expats through their settling -in process so their extent of stumbling is drastically reduced. I also consult and help in the ‘learning and adjusting’ phase.
