Lakhsmi.... This post took me the longest to write. Its so easy to write about general things, other people and observations. So hard to write about ourselves!

So glad to know about you more Garima. However most of the things I could guess from reading your blogs for a while :) You definitely got to give beauty pageants a shot since your answers are ideal :)
