In good old days, I used to write diaries on day-to-day events. Then I felt boring of writing them all in paper and altogether stopped that habit.

          Now this blog is my diary for a very long time. Even though, I am having some restrictions in pouring out all my feelings & emotions, I continue to write this blog as my solace.

       'Window Sill' Blog, I share the world that I look through my window. Travel, Lifestyle, Books, Cinema, Nature and my favorite Bird Watching - anything, I share here..

         Usually I travel a lot, nearest to farther. I always like to put in those experiences with you all. May be it is useful or may not be.  Its nice to do.
