"I shall die here. Every last inch of me shall perish. Except one. An inch. It's small and it's fragile and it's the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us..." - V for Vendetta

Ever since a child, I have imagined what it must feel like to have one place in this world you can call your own...where you think, question and create whatever it is you wish, and no one may ever know. Almost like fish staring with unblinking gaze at nothing at all...while somewhere, you roam distant shores.

In my mind I have found this place…and the world of words…is a little window leading into it. Within this space, I live…breathe…exist! Not a daughter, wife, mother, friend….no, the roles come later. This is the core…of one life…speaking to another. It’s what I bring to my words.. it’s what I lay bare on these pages before your eyes.

Special Moments on Hubpages:

I was honored to be nominated twice in the hubnugget competition for my hubs: Red Light Area and Life As Immigrants. Also, felt wonderful to be chosen among the top 5 most creative writers in the list of Hubbers for 2009 on HP as well as being one of the Hubbers of the Month.

Personal details:

I've spent all my life traveling and living in different countries so there is no specific culture I 'belong' to. I've done my Masters in English Literature, and am now studying for a Psychology degree at University of London. I also work as a volunteer for people with disability, juggling family life...and writing along side.

    Have you ever looked at the face of a child born of poverty…looked right into his eyes, held the gaze and wondered what he was thinking? Or did you flinch, momentarily confused, and walk away relieved to be back within the comfort of your safe...
