Women and their HOLIness!

March 8, 2013

In my previous blog, I wrote about bridging gaps. Speaking of which, there’s a noticeable gap between Planet Venus and Mars, the apparent origins of women and men respectively. If you come to think of it, the descriptions do make sense.. After all, planet Venus is pretty much in between the cool-blue earth and the blazing sun – It reaches out for the star yet remains down to earth!

Gap years are unconventional here in India; people plan for their postgraduate studies as soon as they begin their undergrads! But the University of London degree wasn’t conventional either. If I was willing to go thus far on the offbeat path, I’d be willing to go a bit further. Hence, my decision to start with only one subject.
