For me it has always been very difficult to tell people who I am, or fill the about me section. There is something about defining yourself that is very restricting, and now that I am sitting down to do It I feel it is equally freeing. So to answer simply who am I?
I am Jaibala Rao, a mom to a wonderful boy, daughter to my parents and sister to my brother and my sister in law. And yes we live together all of us, makes it so much more interesting! So much of what I write is from what I see, feel and observe around me and most of the times they end up being the subjects of my writing. I am also friends with some of the most amazing people.
Academically, I have my Masters in Microbiology (Yes I was one of those good students people who didn’t have a life beyond studies), and professionally I have worked in the event industry taking on various roles. I think this diverse experience is what even prepared me for writing in so many tones and styles.
But if you ask me, what truly I am is a reader and a Writer. They have been my only constants in life (except for family). What I write about is anything that inspires me to. It doesn’t take a lot for an idea to take root in your head, and once it is there, it has to be written.
I write a personal blog, as a columnist at various portals and even commercial content. For a complete list of the services I offer click here. My blog has been awarded the Best Creative Writing Blog at the Orange Flower Awards 2017 by Women’s Web and is featured in the Top Indian Blogs.
