Kalpana Manivannan

A dreamer. A Home Chef. An Amateur painter. An Urban Farmer. I live in Chennai, India, with my wonderful husband and two lovely kids. I am a teacher by profession and a blogger by choice. I have a lot of varied interests. Apart from being an avid reader, I love gardening, painting, cooking, travelling and jotting down my random musings, which keeps me wonderfully busy.
My recent interest in homesteading seems to be taking up a lot of my dream space lately. Living in a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by fruit trees, a vegetable garden and lots of flowering shrubs is what I dream of. I am currently working towards balancing the art of being an Urban city-dweller and a homesteader in a nearby country-side. With all this craziness going, I am happiest being a mother and a wife as my world revolves around my family and their love is what makes the world go round for me.
