Who am I?


I’m an addicted reader, an amateur writer, and an occasional movie watcher. I’m a book junkie, a critic, a fan, but mostly I’m a girl who loves stories. Born and brought up India, I’m quite opinionated. I’ve a lot to say on most of the topics. I speak so much that my real life friends have threatened to seal my lips with the permanent glue.

This blog is my attempt  to rant to say something intelligent about the stories I encounter. These stories might be from the novels, magazines, movies or, sometimes, from my own mind.

About the name: Parichita is a feminization of a Hindi word, Parichit, which means acquaintance, accustomed, known.

When I was young (that doesn’t means that I’m old now!), my teacher asked me to select an alternate name. She asked me to think about my special quality. I, with my scrunched eyes and running nose, pondered that question for a moment and replied, “Everybody knows me. I’m not famous, but they all know I’m here. Is that a special quality?” The teacher very gravely nodded at my answer and gave me a made-up word Parichita.

Parichita is not my real name, but this is the personality I hope to adopt in this storyland. I will be ecstatic if you want to become my friend, but in the meantime, I’ll settle for being a writer/reader who’s known to all.

    Hi Parichita,
    Now, every time I will see your name it will remind me of my sister and my cousin name mixed together.
    I too used a pen name out of my real name. Yes, I would like to be your friend if you will let me.
