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).

Queeristan by Parmesh Sahani

  Queeristan (Amazon Link) Thanks to Audible Free Trial I listened to this amazing non-fiction on LGBTQ inclusion in Indian workplaces. Author Parmesh Sahani identifies as gay Indian, working closely with Godrej higher management and employees for years to create an inclusive workplace, both legally and in spirit. This book is a result of those years of experience, research, collaboration with individuals from difference spectrum of the society and organizations who has successfully transitioned into a queer friendly one.   Indian history is inclusive. From the Khajuraho temple architectures, to Konark to the Rig Veda, there is existing proofs even 2000 years ago of Indian inclusiveness of queer. It’s the draconian British law that criminalised it, which was scraped in 2009, came into effect once again following a sad judgement in 2013 and eventually was scraped off for good in 2018. I am in awe of the lawyers who fought this legal battle- colleagues and partners – Arundhati Katju
