I usually don’t talk about myself on social media be it on the blog, or Instagram or Insta stories. I shy away and feel awkward about sharing my day or life in general. But I love learning a little more about the ladies behind my favorite blogs, and I get asked a lot on what I do and where I am from. So I thought you will enjoy these little facts about me. I would love to know about yourself, don’t forget to leave them in comments.

This is me 90% of time, raw, unplugged from the fashion norms, no make up on, messy hair, breezy clothes, trying to eat less, loving the wonky spaces of my body and mind, believing nature has an answer for everything, dreaming of living a sustainable and healthy life.

15 Random Facts About Me

1. I have been vegetarian all my life except for the 6 months when I ate chicken 2 years back.

2. My first salon haircut was when I was 23 years old. Until then my mom used to cut my hair and wouldn’t let anyone touch it (literally). In short, she loves my hair more than me.

3. I get really awkward when someone compliments me. I shrink and used to walk away. Now I’ve learned to thank back and reciprocate the same when I like something about others.

4. I love love plants. My biggest dream right now is to have a mini jungle in my house and live a plastic free lifestyle.

5. My favorite family vacation is visiting different temples and knowing their history.

6. I did my Bachelor’s and Masters in Computer Science but growing up, I wanted to be an animator, gynecologist, and a professional violin player.

7. I get confused on how to answer when someone asks me where I am from? My ancestors hail from Karnataka state in India but I was born in Andhra Pradesh and grew up in Odisha.

8. I can speak 3 Indian languages fluently (Telugu, Oriya, and Hindi) and can understand little bit Tamil. I cleared the first (A1) level test for German language but hardly remember any words now except for few like Danke (Thank you!). My latest obsession is to learn Japanese.

9. I am a food lover but I hesitate trying new items in restaurants because I don’t want to miss a chance to eat my favorite dish. I am plain boring when it comes to food.

9. India and United States are the only 2 countries I’ve ever been (sadly). The places that I am most excited to visit are Bali, Japan, and African safari.

10. Green has been my favorite color ever since I can remember. I love all shades of it but I am little biased to mint.

11. Music fixes everything for me. I am a die hard fan of A R Rahman’s music and also enjoy listening to Adele and Taylor Swift.

12. I’ve won several prizes in dancing and singing while growing up but never did a solo performance on stage.

13. I barely wear any makeup (mostly lipstick) in all my outfit pics. I spend less than 5 mins on my face every day.

14. Sleeping is not my favorite thing to do. I feel we can get a lot of things done if we didn’t sleep (swear on my dark circles and puffy eyes).

15. I despise any kind of discrimination based on caste, race or color. I also run a Facebook group called unite against caste feeling for the like-minded people.

I would love to know more about yourself. please leave them in comments.

    I’ve also never thought about doing a random facts about me blog post!

  • Jessica Hughes

    I really love my sleep, but I don’t often get as much as I would like. It gets tough with two littles, especially one who seems like you and doesn’t like to sleep! I love learning about the person behind a blog, it is always to interesting to see their likes and passions.

  • jade

I too won awards for dancing growing up and i’m also a boring eater – I love food but I don’t want to miss out on my fave dishes in restaurants like you said.

  • Donna

    I don’t make my blog personal either but it can be so nice to find out more about someone. I used to be a pro singer and then a magazine editor, it always gets a conversstion going! xx

  • Firstly I love this outfit. Great to get to know some facts about you 🙂

  • Celestial B Purposed

    The awkwardness with compliments used to be mo too. Well, still is, to some degree. I spend about 5 minutes on my make-up as well, foundation and such are not my friends. However, give me some black eyeliner and lipgloss and life is great. Awsome that you have your Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science, that is a wonderful achievement. Great post and thanks for sharing. 😉

  • Margarette Puno

    You’re such a lovely lady. The way you put up your fashion is great too. I feel too shy also when people compliments me. But am used to it. I’ll keep reading more of your post. Thanks.

  • Margarette Puno

    You’re such a lovely lady, Surekha. The way you put up your fashion is great too. I feel too shy also when people compliments me. But am used to it. I’ll keep reading more of your post. Thanks.

  • Candy Rachelle

    I’m a lot like you. I ALWAYS order the same meal at restaurants. I have a problem with change! And make sure you travel a bit more. So much to discover!!!

  • Alison Rost

    I love when bloggers write posts like this. It’s so fun to get a sneak peek at their off-line life. I hear you on the sleep thing .. but take it from me Sweetie, one day you’ll be 40 and those dark circles won’t disappear so quickly after a couple night’s sleep. As Rhett Butler said to Scarlett O’Hara “Tomorrow’s another day” x

  • Sierra Schomburg

    I relate to you on the fact that I hardly ever wear makeup and spend less than 5 minutes putting anything on but I think that is because I value sleep to much and don’t want to lose any of it to put makeup on. I love it when bloggers post things like this because you get to know the person behind the words instead of just the persona

  • Cynthia Nicoletti

    It’s nice to hear about you. I love your clothing and yes I to wear no makeup most of the time and just go out the door.

  • Sondra Barker

    These were really great, I loved getting to know you a little better. I like that you go for the natural look and keep things simple.

  • These are such sweet things you’ve told about yourself. It’s so interesting that you’ve been a vegetarian for almost all of your life! I think you’re a more reserved person generally, and you should feel free to express that!

  • I loved getting to know more about you. Your outfits are always amazing, but I enjoyed learning more about the person in them!

  • I wrote a post a few months back about random facts about me in order to let people know about me and for me to learn about my readers too. A fun post, nice to know about you.

  • KleyrrFieonah Santiago

    I appreciate your courage. It’s hard to disclose yourself especially on social media where a lot of judgement might be made. (Gee Villaruz)

  • Marceline Dementori

    I’ve been reading your blog for some time now and I don’t really know anything aside from the outfit posts and the tips that you share with us! It was nice getting to know you!

  • Brooke Poston

    I love random facts posts! I feel like we get an insider’s look at a life and it’s so interesting. You know sooooo many languages. I know English, and a little Cajun French, so I’m slacking!

  • Marie Andrea Goldstein

    Wish I could pull off pants like this. I love this outfit.

  • Mike Marie Barber

    I love these kind of posts, i find them really interesting! Id love to learn mire languages, really want to learn Spanish its such a beautiful language. I can’t stand discrimination either! Its been tough for some in the UK lately.

  • loved knowing the bits about you. you are such a sweet and unpretentious person! xx
