Hi. Im Ragini, a daily prodigy in the fields of list-making and Saas Bahu recognition. I currently live near the mountains with my husband and very cute sons.

I am addicted to making good food, enjoying green sea buckthorn juice from the Himalayas, (preferably in my orange juice rocks), Who wants to be a millionaire versions ,online shopping and the color of sky and clouds.
My own personal joys involve talking on the phone for long to long lost friends and catching up with life around and my recordings of Radio Jockeys playstation playing in the background.
