Catchy title, isn't it? Well...I didn't think of it, but someone enticing did. The Girl who looked for Rainbows is Medha Kapoor's blog which I am reviewing as a part of Secret Santa organised by our own girl gang - IndiBlogeshwaris. So what if I am staying away from family and friends, this group makes me feel completely at home, even if it is only virtually that I interact with the gang! Love you girls..you make the sun shine even in this cold Beaverton weather. <3
Uff..now I am getting emotional. The task was to review a blog, Secret Santa isthyle. So I was snooping around Medha's blog so that I can do a review of her blog. Here is my bit about Medha's blog - The Girl who looked for Rainbows. Meanwhile, grab on to some cookies and brownies and also remember me while doing so! :)
It was the first time I had hopped onto Medha's blog. Strangely, I hadn't come across her blog before. Sic sic..I missed out on some good writing. When I first saw the blog title, it let me into dreams of my own - dreams that we weave in broad daylight. The title is mesmerising, intriguing to an extent, and her writings do justice to the same.
There are a few blogs that resonate with the way one feels, at different emotional junctures of life and Medha brings out the essence of these emotions very well. I couldn't stop at just one post when I started reading her blog. It stirred in emotions so strong that I dug her archives till I could have a hold on my quenching thirst for emotions she explores. Be it the way she handles poems, prose or the reviews, I can see a bit of her in everything. Though I do not know her personally, I know that her writings are a bit of her and to me, that is what makes it more enjoyable and thought provoking. Also, a subtle humour here and there in some of the posts take it to a new level altogether.
I love the way she plays with words, with emotions, toying around with the thoughts on her mind that reflect so well on the paper. When we write, it gets difficult sometimes to put down everything that is there in our heads. I might be wrong, but I feel Medha is able to do it. If I have to put it mathematically, for most of us, Thoughts on our mind > Thoughts on the blog post. Whereas, when I read Medha's posts, I felt Thoughts on her mind = Thoughts on the blog post.
I do not want to pick any post of hers labeling it my favourite, not because I don't want to, but because I cannot. I cannot pick only one post of hers that I liked. I can never decide which I liked the best when there are so many good ones that moved me. All in all, a must read! I have only one tiny bit of an advice, maybe the layout could be made more reader friendly and a little "About me" section could be added to get a glimpse of the girl who writes so wonderfully.
So, hop on to the sleigh and lets go on an emotional journey with The Girl who looked for Rainbows!!
To all my readers, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. May these holidays bring in a lot of cheer in your life!
