Urban planner, Fibro warrier, amateur writer, really amateur photographer, wanna-be chef, Moi a.k.a Lakshmi Rajagopalan. I have been married to Guru for 14 years (has it been that long 🙂 ), who is my rock with FM, mom to 3 lovely boys, Vidyuth, Vishruth and Rocky 🙂 who keep me on my feet all day (& night) long.

Fiercely independent with a rebelling streak, known for my tomboyish traits, nicknamed “Phoolan Devi” in college…..
Love all things organic, casual, comfy & earthy (READ: PJs and t-shirts)
Music and Books are an absolute necessity to me survival.

When faced with a roadblock or a distraction, I rant for sometime (DUH!!!) and remember my mantra
“The expected is just the beginning. The unexpected is what changes our lives………EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.” and
“Low expectations lead to less disappointments….”

I started this blog as a sounding board for my thots, observations,and sometimes my experiences from real/reel life…….but now it is my way of coping with Fibromyalgia, a small step that allows me to retain my sanity despite the maddening pain and everything that comes with it.

Here’s hoping for a less-pain…..eventually pain-free day and life.





  1. Hi Lakshmi

    I read your post about Fibromyalgia – my wife is having exactly the same side effects as your. We are planning a family and wanted to check with you if you had this condition during pregnancy? Also, are you trying Ayurveda as a cure?
