    Hugs, Parul! What an eventful year. I loved reading your month-by-month account. I can imagine how it must have felt at that moment when you walked on stage with your name on the screen! Congratulations! and congratulations on the decade of love! As you know, I enjoy your photos on instagram, especially of your godchild (I know, I am partial like that). So! Can you read, write and speak Kannada fluently? I’ve never heard you speak the language!
    Was hoping to see you at the Orange Flower Awards and learned that you had to rush out of town as someone was unwell. Hope s/he is feeling much better now.

    Love and hugs, and thank you for being part of the Gratitude Circle, Parul. May 2017 be fabulous for you!

    (The January linky will be up in a little while. )

      Thanks for stopping by Vidya! I love writing this yearly account and it reminds me that things were not as boring as they look. 😉
      I can speak kannada. Swalpa swalpa. Jaasti illa.
      Yep – how I wish I was around but sometimes things don’t go as we plan. Love and hugs Vidya. You will see me around as always.

    I loved reading this post. I feel the annual stock taking at the end of every year is a great way to learn lessons and feel grateful. I enjoyed the way you wrote about each month of 2016. I also did a blog post about the lessons I learned in 2016 on my blog

    To make each moment count and always to be grateful, is what I learn from you. Lovely lovely recap of 2016! Wishing you and yours an amazing year ahead and hope you include London in your travel plans!

    Thanks for sharing your year with all of us. Wishing you a fabulous 2017. May all your dreams come true.

  11. A lovely list, Parul. You are an inspiration. Continue to shine in 2017! ♥

    Parul .. you’ve managed to pack so much into one year and make every month count. I can see how month on month the gratitude posts were leading to this finale. Learning languages , travelling , being positive , being happy – what a fulfilling year it has been for you.
    Thanks once again for the gift .. like I mentioned I would perhaps start making a note of the little happy moments when people like you have been kind to me..far away from gratitude but I guess its a start towards being more thankful! Happy new year 🙂

  13. Wow! You spoke on a radio show, that’s so superbly fabulous!

    Really, you’re one of the most amazing women I’ve been following here via blogging. Editing Wikipedia, being vocal about women-related issues, travelling, being an awesome blogger, and still having the time to dabble in crochet, baking and figure out what you like the most. Super amaze!

    Wishing you all the very best in the new year 2017, Parul 🙂

  14. Vineeta says:

    Ameen for your wishes and I am sure they will be fulfilled.
    I am also thankful for every year that passes and pray Almighty for better days ahead but sometimes I think life is also finishing so fastly .
    Well doesn’t matter . Your writings will inspire your mom when she will feel weak .
    U are our strength . Love and blessings for 2017

  15. Great reading about a full fabulous 2016! Hope that 2017 has even more in store for you. 🙂

    Low moments? All I can take from this year that it was a springboard to the next year. You’ve achieved so much and I must congratulate you in documenting it so well. If I look back at my year, I can only remember the good things that I’ve eaten, while life happened in the background. Have a great 2017.

    • Parul Thakur says:

      ha ha, Rohan. Like I say, I choose to write good things. Life did happen in the background and will continue to happen. We need to pick the things we want to save and make memorable.
