मैं घुमन्तू: तेरे मेरे बीच में

    I have been reading and re-reading your blog since long, got introduced to you via your articles on Livemint. Felt like commenting on this blog because I could relate to what the lady is trying to tell you (trust me she means more than the words). I have a decently good life, family and husband but I can't live without my soul sisters :)Btw all your blogs & pictures are heart-warming and your daughters are adorable. You all look like one great family & really 'nice' people. (Touch wood:)
