My name is Vibha and writing has always been a secret hobby of mine. I believe it's, "better to write for yourself and have no public, then write for the public and have no self." I was traveling a couple of weeks ago and happen to sit next to a 96 year old woman. She talked about her parents, her children down to her great grandchildren and in between all those kids, she mentioned her late husband. For some reason, I couldn't get over how independent she was at her age, which made me smile. In the end, she and I played a game of Sudoku. I believe everyone has a story and being a part of desiwebusa gives me that opportunity to do something I enjoy.
