About Henri and this Blog

About this blog

I walked into a mall the other day, and looked up; the ceiling was almost invisible to the naked eye. The hottest sun-rays nor the arrival-of-spring-breeze, nor the romance of autumn were allowed inside! The height of the glass walls ensured that one remained untouched by the other side of life. The bizarre psychology of having glass walls- crystal clear…yet unreal! It was so simple to walk out and buy some sumptuous bhel-poori. This is my voice from the other side of the glass wall.

This blog was featured on “Freshly Pressed” on wordpress.com’s main site on November 15th 2010. It was a great encouragement for me and I am incredibly happy to say that this blog has managed to retain my sanity. Thank you for visiting my blog, look around, leave me some words of encouragement if you’re moved by something I wrote.

About Henri

Henri, is a pseudonym that is more me than what I’d let the world see. Henri is the perfection and imperfection that Ekta can never be or outgrow. Henri is not an escape, rather an inspiration to live and love truly. A strange name, many people tell me. But I love it. What we gift ourselves remains priceless. I gifted myself an identity that sets me free.

  9. Hi Henri! I just read your post on Learnings of a consultant’s wife and absolutely loved it! I have recently (not so recent- long story here) become one and am in pretty much a similar situation as you probably were when you decided to go back to school. I would like to get your thoughts on some questions that I am trying to figure out for myself. Would you have an email I can speak to you at? I am also now going to proceed to read the rest of the blog- looks very interesting and i love your writing style. πŸ™‚
