Introduction

Hello! All,

        Welcome to Creative Joys. Before I proceed, let me introduce myself to you. I am an Architect by profession who lives in the Northeast of America. I have lived, studied and worked as an Architect in India and America. Now that I have crossed the milestone of age 40, I thought of setting up this blog to share my experiences with a global audience.
       My architectural education has not only given me a wonderful way to earn a comfortable living but it has also taught me how to live and enjoy life to its fullest potential, by seeking joy through different channels of creativity. Hence the name of this blog is Creative Joys. The purpose of this blog is to share with its viewers the joy I have experienced by doing watercolor painting, hands-on-gardening, nature photography, writing, reading, travelling and being an architect.
     Many of the posts will contain information and images which I have created and amassed in the past 25 years, in the journey of my life. With this I hope you shall enjoy it as much as I enjoyed preparing it. Thanking you for your time 🙂

  4. Great blog! Would you be interested in contributing an occasional article/paper/series to our online portal? We publish on design and development, and have a print publication slated for end 2010.
    Best wishes.

  5. Extremely great content.

  6. I quite enjoy what you submit right here. Particularly insightful and intelligent. One concern though. I’m running Firefox with Debian and parts of your current web design pieces are a little wonky. I realize it’s not a popular set up. But it’s an issue to hold in the mind. I wish that it will probably help and keep the top rated quality writing.

    1. Welcome to Creative Joys and thank you for all the appreciation. Have you tried viewing any other WordPress blog with Firefox + Debian and had similar problems i.e. seeing wonky pieces? Well so far you are the first to report about this. May be WordPress can help you resolve the problem.

      Also since you think the writing in this blog is top rated, it might interest you to check out my book.
