C’est Moi!


I believe in the beauty of life, beauty that nourishes, inspires, and heals. I derive inspiration from nature and people…every single person has something beautiful within him which I yearn to bring out. Beauty to me translates into the endless skies, roaring oceans, the innocence of children, flowers, colors and scents of the wild, pristine water, the velvety night sky plundering the twinkling stars, the shroud of mystery.

Notoriously workaholic, I love pondering upon the little mysteries of the universe inter-woven into one big puzzle, which inclines my thoughts towards the ‘building block’ sciences- particle physics, genetics, nanotechnology, neurology, and the apple of my eye-psychology. Eyes and body language often reveal more than words, and my current self-improvement project is to use these assets to be less of an open book than I am.

I’m passionate about books- I must have been born with a Robbins instead of a silver spoon! My birthday renders me a Piscean- compassionate, empathetic, imaginative, and constantly metamorphosing into a different person every second. Imagination is also characteristic of a right-brained individual, as are intuition, creativity, the need for sensory input, and interestingly, the use of hand gestures and an active body language. The cultures of the world and movies happen to be my favorite sensory inputs, and I’m addicted to movies as I was to the initiator of the very concept.

The untiring search for knowledge, synthesizing parts into a holistic whole, word play, an urge to contribute substantially to my Nation and humanity at large, and a drive to achieve are composites of my addictions as well. I enjoy acting, directing, and watching theatrical plays and performances, as well as participating in conferences and workshops glazing myriad arenas. I am fascinated by the myriad career options my generation has, and I believe that exploration is the foundation of every nook and cranny of life.

And I also believe you noticed the linking of ideas flowing from one sentence to the next!

This is by no means the end of  “me”.. Join me in my journey as I discover mysteries within and beyond..

  1. Hi, I stumbled upon your blog from somewhere and I am glad I did! Wonderful thoughts and beautiful photos.

    By the way, why the name ‘Opal Odyssey’? Hey, I am just curious, no need to answer if you feel so.

    Thank you! Keep visiting!
    Opal is a gem which has always fascinated me.. it stands for the mysterious unknown and the familiar twinkle simultaneously.. All of the universe seems to bask in its opulence, and yet, in the blink of an eye, everything is plenum again. Opal Odyssey is a journey through this series of contradictions and conjectures; which, in turn, is startlingly reminiscent of the journey through Life itself.. And hence.. Opal Odyssey!

  2. u are different babes…. feels so nice to read wat u have written… how do u manage all this???

  3. At first when I read your comment on my ‘about me’ page, I thought I had written it well.
    But after reading this I feel mine is just downright stupid! 😦

    Have you chanced to come across that Prestige ad where even the dog looks like Parmeet Sethi because everything and everyone is the same?!

    And for all you know, once you upload you-playing-the-guitar wala video, Rahman might just decide to pick you up! 😉 Jai ho!

  4. Hey, I enjoy reading your posts. You and your readers might like this video that a friend sent me. It’s a Bollywood version of an iTunes spot. Keep up the good work blogging!

  5. Dear Akshaya,

    I have just read your blog comment and I am so very humbled that you would find inspiration in my simple words of truth. Thank you for that. Sometimes the valleys are necessary in life. Yesterday night, I had a car accident and damaged a Mercedes Benz very badly. I was coming from my church and dropping off some biscuits so I really wondered why such a bad thing would happen. But today, while getting quotes for repairing the car, I met a man who told me that it wasn’t that bad and that when he had an accident in 2001, he accidentally killed someone and spiralled into a two-year-long depression.
    I asked him what brought him back and he said, “The realisation that God was still bigger than everything that had happened.”
    I was awed.
    And I thought that maybe all this had to happen just for me to hear that.
    And that’s what life’s about – happening to each other.

    Much love
