My Year Round-Up 2019

2019 has been a very memorable journey for me both professionally as well as personally. Professionally I got the chance to participate in a few literary Meet and Kids Carnival. Also I got a chance to perform based on my voice. Personally, the year has been a milestone in my life.  I was blessed with some of the most beautiful moments of my life. I have seen the work of art on paper coming to existence in structure formation in the real world. A dream come true. Emotionally I am satisfied with the progress in which the structure is shaping up eventually. So without wasting time lets unravel the mystery.


I was invited for storytelling in Kids’ Carnival 2019 organized by Vichakshan Jain Vidyapeeth. I got an opportunity to share stories from my books Grow Up Messy! and The Santa’s Gift.


Students of the school



It seems I didn’t do anything that month. Probably exam time ate up all my excitement to look forward to life. Aaouch!


Yeah, I can hear the birds chirping. Of course the arrival of springtime. And who can forget the festivals of color HOLI. Had a fabulous time with gulal, pichkari and baang thandai. Did you have fun?



A weekend trip to Vizag and Araku Valley with family friends needs a special mention. It was never so hotter before in the Valley.

“The Booknerds organized a hangout dedicated to children books and authors at Little Flower School, Dehradun. The event focussed on the reading culture and reducing screen time among kids. In the panel were some prominent authors, Ratna Manucha, author of more than thirty books and principal of Little Flower School, Paromita Goswami, author of Grow Up Messy and Roshen Dalal, a prolific writer and historian. Students from Olympus High School, Little Flower School and Doon International School were present at the event.” _ The Booknerds.

It was such an esteem moment to meet some of the prolific writers, Roshen Dalal and Ratna Manucha. Neha and Rohan the founder of the Booknerds really need a lot of applause for taking the initiative.



I got the chance to meet my childhood friends who have always been the anchor of my life. It never felt like we were meeting after twenty-five years.

Practically no contribution professionally. Motherhood takes precedence here and time to catch up with my son’s demands.


With the onset of Navrathris and the knocking of Durga puja round the corner, all jazzed up for shopping. This year donned mostly shopping glass bangles.



Enjoyed fabulous time during Durgapuja with boudis and sarees.



Diwali celebration marked the biggest celebration of the year.


Had a quick getaway to Barnawapara forest. This time we stayed in a resort and enjoyed the fabulous natural setting and wildlife.



It was also the time when I cleared the tests and got selected for All India radio.


The month celebration starts with my birthday which falls on the eighth. Enjoyed picnic with friends.

I wish for a solid beginning in 2020. May my manifestations be granted from the spiritual world to the 3D. Los of expectations and aspirations for the coming year 2020.

Have a set of books to be published. My music career gracefully elated. The kids club more active with lots of events and last, peace and harmony should prevail in all parts of the country.
