About Me



Hi! I am Pratikshya. Welcome! I am thrilled to have you here.

I am an engineer by education and  an ex-IT professional. I am currently preparing for competitive exams in the weekdays and am an aspiring writer by the weekend. 

Magic Moments is my avid blogging space. I am passionate about books- fiction and non-fiction, Korean Dramas, movies, soulful writing, and travel stories. I do pen occasional verses and other abstruse musings here too.

Reading feeds my soul; travel and music, my preferred mode of therapy; spirituality, a daily pursuit; and experimenting with food, a favorite pastime. You can find me on Instagram where I share my latest inspirations, travel updates, and artsy creations. 


My writing ventures can be read here: Jodhpur Diaries (a Novella).

With just three days in hand, four of us travelled from Mumbai, Pune and Bhubaneswar, to Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru, to join a few others staying in the city. And the excitement to finally meet one another after 6 months of that trip to Pune, the Lohagard Trek- we were kids excitedly clicking selfies in our face masks, hurriedly putting a quick dab of sanitizer before hugging one another.


Next day early morning we were to start for Ooty. Sleepy heads, gulping a bowl each of muesli, we started onward journey to Bandipur National Park. Devouring uttapams, dosas and piping hot cups of coffee for breakfast at a restaurant by the highway, chit chats were full on, as was the music and dance in the 12-seater vehicle.
