Its in the midst of Feb and I am reminded of the climate during the months of Dec & Jan in Munnar…its been pretty cold for the past weeks .There were nights when the temperature dropped down to minus 2 and 3 and that’s pretty unusual during this month.The laziest part of all is getting up in mornings to go to school ..phew…:P when you just wish  to stay curled and cuddled in the warmth of your quilt  in bed..and ur alarm goes beep beep..ahh..:(

I was recently featured in the Deepika news portal..
