About Me

Welcome to my blogimage

So one of the things that I planned to start in 2016 was my own blog. I tossed up  with ideas and my busy brain is overflowing. I thought I’d start with a brief introduction of myself. So Sam being abbreviation for SAMANTHRA ….growing up I often thought my mum could not spell Samantha and I found myself constantly having to explain the letter “R” in my name. Older and wiser I love the addition of the “R” as I now understand the full meaning of mantra and realise that’s where the symbolism of my name lies. More about that here. Having migrated to Australia about 15 years ago, my birth country being South Africa, my heritage and culture lies in no other than the beautiful and mystical India. I now reside in Australia.
In a nutshell I’m a South African Indian living in Australia.
Hence, I love everything Indian, African and Australian and the mix of it all has shaped me somewhat.  This is what you can expect from my blog…a fusion of my cultures and a mix of blogs about life, love and happiness. Stay tuned!  If you want to get to know me even further read this post The Best Things In Life Are Free

    Hahah I swear I read it as Samantha until I saw Shelley’s comment.
    Samanthra is a rocking name. Mind if you honor me by letting me name a character in one of my upcoming novels?
