Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog!

I am Shikha Chandel. Most of you don’t know me at all. But that’s alright, you will get acquainted with every new post you read on contemplation. I have been writing since school days but never considered sharing it on a community of people from different backgrounds and mindsets. A few years ago, I was having a regular talk with a friend where I disclosed my love for writing. Like everyone, he asked me to share some of my work. Trust me when I say, what I sent was not really a wonderful piece of art. But, who is gonna judge me right? So, I just sent him a short poetry. Surprisingly, he liked it and suggested me to start writing a blog. 

Honestly, I had no idea about blogging, I still don’t. I was dubious and reluctant about starting to share my stuff on a blog. Mostly concerned about what will be people’s reaction. Is someone even gonna like it? I wanted to write but didn’t want to have a discouraging word from strangers. I was thinking too much. Then suddenly I had a thought, what if people liked my writings? What if they wanted to read more of it?

Anyways, I was free then, struggling with life’s issues. And the writing was my only escape. So, I gave a little thought about blogging. What worse could happen? Either people will not like it or they will. In any scenario, I will always have something to learn.

Keeping that thought alive in my head, I made my first post called “she knows she deserves better” I did not receive too many likes on it, but it gave me the courage I needed to just keep writing. Ever since I have only received encouragement and good words from all my readers. It helped me improve, learn, and grow better. I am glad that I created contemplation. I was a researcher earlier, now I am a writer too. That’s the story of how Contemplation originated.  

Besides writing, I also love traveling, trekking, and taking bike rides. I am a caffeine addict, I can’t survive a day without it. I am a Dan Brown fan. In my life so far I don’t happen to remember a day I slept without reading. In addition to that, I am a geneticist. I love science, puzzles, and mysteries. My friends call me a nerd because I am a knowledge seeker, multifaceted, and never gets bored alone. 


And, if you still want to know more about me, here is a little poetic expression:

I am somebody, who just wants to pen every single thought, hitting my head, rattling about being shared with the world. I am somebody, who loves to write, short to long stories, thorns, and roses, words full of flaws and proses. I am somebody, who would want to write until I figure out the perfection flooding out of imperfections, and this will take forever. I am somebody, who will always be a writer, what if not that famous yet, doesn’t mean I will never be. I am somebody, who still exists and stands for the righteousness and I am somebody, who will always be a little more than useless, better than being nobody.

Through this platform, I am aiming to promote awareness of gender equality and empowerment. It’s an independent effort now, but your love and support can change it to a collective one. Let’s do this together because change is what we need, change is what we seek. Equality is empowerment, and its needed now more than ever. 

I appreciate your precious time for visiting contemplation.

Thank you!

Shikha Chandel 😊
