“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”Mark Twain
Who on Earth are you?
My name is Keenal. I’m strong, independent British Asian lady that don’t need no man, in my early 20’s. I’m a psychology graduate, feminist, egalitarian, left wing human. I enjoy reading, cocktails, writing poetry, travelling and equality among all humans. My goal is to see as much of the world as possible and leave a positive mark on this planet, however small and insignificant I may be in the grand scheme of the universe.
My dad is from East Africa, my mum from India and I along with my older sister were born in London. I studied at the University of Sussex with an all too short year abroad in New York and have worked largely in admin since. I am a vegetarian (95% of the time), and a pacifist 80% of the time. My family may say I’m stubborn, I say I’m passionate about social issues that affect all groups of people. They may say I’m always out, I would say I’m experiencing life to the fullest, one country or cocktail at a time 😉
Why should I bother visiting your beautiful site?
Thank you for the complement! I will be penning musings, poems and articles on a variety of topics ranging from the tantalizingly thrilling to taboo. This blog is a small reflection of my identity as a British born Gujarati woman (amongst the other labels I fall under), which I hope resonates with some of my readers and provides a new perspective to others.
You can expect travel related blogs from classy cocktail places in London, or further afield when my wallet allows for a holiday. There’s cultural content and social content, from the vibrant, to the taboo. I will also use my psych knowledge (finally!) and post about the mind and body as well as my poetry and whatever else takes my fancy.
Are you going to pester me to share/follow?
If you’ve made it this far, then you’re a beautiful human! As this blog is as small as me (I’m 4’11’ so that’s saying something), please share if you like any of the posts, to your social media accounts. You can also subscribe down below to receive any new posts by email. 🙂
