Hello people! I am Roopam Jain. Currently residing in Bangalore, India. I am a 24 year old girl working in IT field as a Software Engineer. However, that’s not much of a big deal. I do take my work seriously but only for five days of the week and it’s Sunday today. I always have a difficulty in defining myself within limited words. You can say I am a motley assortment of things. I have varied interests: I love to read (though not everything), words amuse me, I love listening to music, I myself am trying my hands at guitar since a few months, I love to travel but I also love peace and quite. At the end of it all, I want to have lived a good life…No great life! Mmm? Sociable? I guess not. I take some time to gel with people and with them i am my unrestrained self! I am wondering how this text will change in a time gap of six months. But certain things never change about me: I am pretty vulnerable, pretty honest to people who matter and pretty fun-loving :)!


After six months..well nine months almost…

I have aged a year older…and turned into Lead Engineer this time (don’t ask me the difference, work is almost same). I am practising guitar more seriously these days. Also loving to blog and getting to know such encouraging bunch of people around. I have accepted my weakness for shopping as a character flaw. Realized I love nature more than the crowd. Have grown stronger by the day, I suppose. And I have got something going with this pose. I am doing it everywhere.

how time flies..about 4 years after the first intro…

I am soon closing in on the 30 benchmark. I no longer do the above pose. Also gave up on guitar. I own two cute cats now: Waffles and Tabby. They are important to me and have taken over my album. Life is quite up and down right now but isn’t it like that all the time?! I thought I was mature at one point but don’t feel the same of late. Engaged in pursuit of happiness as always.

another year later…

Boy o boy, turning 30 in a few months. Don’t feel old, just less excited about things. At a low point as I write this. But then, when have situations ever continued to be the same?

The pose never left me.


Yeah, that’s all me. Anyway, welcome to my blog. :).

  3. You know you should add the widget where one can subscribe to your blog through their email-id. I don’t know how many people would actually visit the ‘READER’ to read other’s post.

  4. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, Roopam. More than glad to meet you πŸ™‚ Learning guitar is something I always wanted to do but never got the chance. It is nice to see that you are able to follow your dreams and managing it along with work. Not many people can do that πŸ™‚ Keep writing and sharing your experiences, your readers are all ears πŸ™‚

    • Oh! It’s not mutual admiration but I loved your writing. Truely, simply loved it. :). Thank you for your nice words. Also, about guitar, well it’s never too late to start! πŸ˜›

  6. You have a great site here πŸ™‚ Thank you redirecting me here and I shouldn’t use such technical words, but it’s Ok as you’re a tech girl and will understand everything πŸ˜› Enjoy your break @ office πŸ˜‰

  7. Well, it was certainly nice to meet you, and after reading this “About” page, I guess I’m going to have to come back and find out just where you finally decide to take this wonderful little page of yours. We’ll be seeing you then. Until that time, take care, stay safe, and of course, BE HAPPY.

    • Those were very kind words from you…I look forward to see for myself how this page turns out..glad to have come across you..and sure Sir, I will be happy..same goes for you..

  8. Hey there! I see we’re about the same age πŸ˜›
    Thank you for your encouraging comments on my poetry, they made my day! I just have to say I like your style of writing and those accompanying pictures πŸ™‚ . You have a cute and charming character that comes through in your posts!

  9. Thanks Poonam for stopping by and taking time to press that sweet word “follow” for me. It means a lot and hope u will remain in touch through ur lovely write up which speaks so pure n honest.

  10. I love this collection of your photos here! I love nature(too). I was amused at first to see your signature pose maintained across these scenically absorbing places, but, then I realized that even I wish to embrace nature, some times, and, just that, in your case, may be right when you were doing the same, some one clicked these pictures for you! So cool. ;).

    • Well..thank you Sandeep. I know right! I get so excited after going to these places..it all comes naturally then…jumping, frolicking, spreading out your hands! πŸ˜€ Love that you relate to it.

    • gee..thank you so much! πŸ™‚ <3 Surprise visitor is always a delight. I went to check your blog on tumblr and it makes me want to join tumblr and follow your blog so bad.

  11. One of the few ‘About’ pages that has had the intro added as against replaced with the passing years. Gives a sense of coming along in the journey πŸ™‚
    And that pose, isn’t it sort of like ‘there’s too much happiness in this moment and I want to spread my arms as wide as I can to grab more of it and cherish it later’? πŸ˜€

    • Well, thanks a bunch for noticing these little details. Comments like this make my day!
      About not replacing the intro all together, we are nothing but a work in progress, aren’t we? And I guess, you got the pose thing right.
      Cheers to you!
