About me! :)


I am Shrinkhla Arora, an engineer only by degree who stumbled into the UPSC civil services wilderness by sheer chance. With no prior knowledge about it, I decided to embark on this journey as an escapist route of not doing MBA (not my cup of tea!) and to get my parents off my back about my career indecisiveness. Eventually, it turned out to be the most adventurous 4-years and counting of my life. I would not trade it for anything in this world (despite not being selected yet :P) as this time helped me discover my strengths & weaknesses, my calling and make friends for a lifetime.Today, I can feel India’s democracy, diversity & development (the 3 beautiful Ds) because I am India and a proud part of this vibrant country. 

I have had the privilege of spending time reading worthwhile books to develop and transform myself enabling me to become a better citizen and a better person. With this blog, I intend to share my understanding of topics, share ideas, link seemingly unrelated issues & broaden the horizon of the readers with new & different perspectives. Additionally, it will incentivise me to continue learning and satisfy the scribbler in me.

It is targeted towards people who are intellectually open to new insights as I use my fundamental right of free speech & expression under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution. The topics chosen will be intriguing to inquisitive minds, related to current global and national happenings, the direction we are headed towards as a species with a pinch of philosophy ( as it stirs my soul:)).

My justajoo in life will continue with even more enthusiasm & vigour. 😀

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.
