‘Kapper Who?’ goes live

To all who voted for me, a big thanks.

Along with bloggers of ‘Amsterdam mamma’ and ‘MissNeriss’, I was invited to read a blogspot at the ‘I am not a tourist fair’ at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.

I chose  ‘Kapper Who?’

The winner was Neriss of  the blog MissNeriss with the loudest cheers in the hall.

Thank you again, for your cheers from near and far, virtual and real….and all the good energy, compliments and encouragement you have given me. I value your support hugely and plan to keep writing.

  1. Hello,
    I just read your piece about your Dutch teacher and I feel very touched by the beauty of your expression. I am a writer in the U.S., and am trying to learn Dutch with a once-per-week class. For reasons even I do not understand, I believe I will end my days in NL. Funny, because I have never ever been there…. Life is a mystery. Thanks for a great read.

  2. Congratulations on winning second prize in the competition! I was one of the nominated bloggers too. I like intercultural musings because they are so important. I grew up as a third culture kid, a Dutch girl growing up in Africa. I blog about everything that has to do with kids growing up in other cultures. It’s my first time on your blog, I would say keep up the blogging and enjoy it too! greetings Janneke

    I enjoyed reading your Blog regarding the Ghanga and the contrast between cultures. As a geriatric nurse, I frequently work with dying people or I am there when people come face to face with their mortality. What a wonderful mystery this life is! A doctor I know, Michael Fratkin says it best: Dying is not a medical condition, it is a condition of the soul. We, of the western persuasion are learning – slowly. the same might be said about India. best of all, we learn from each other.

    1. Hello Evy,

      Thanks for your comment.Yes, death is a condition of the soul and as I grow older, i realize that. Here in Holland, I have come across incredible acceptance of the end nearing.Terminally ill people take the decision to die supported by their families. You must have developed an amazing sense of calm through your work. It’s good to hear from you again. Nandini

  4. Hi Nandini,

    I think you refer to our event as an initiative of GOPIO? It has nothing to do with that, we did not receive any support from the same, I muyself have created the event and the word spread only via friends and presonal messages and Facebook, not that that I care, but neither should GOPIO get any credit for doing with respect to the event.

    thanks again!

  5. Hi Nandini,

    I think you refer to our event as an initiative of GOPIO? It has nothing to do with that, we did not receive any support from the same, I myself have created the event and the word spread only via friends and personal messages and mostly Facebook, not that that I care, but neither should GOPIO get any credit for doing nothing with respect to the event.

    thanks again!
