Hi, I am Meenal. I'm a travel enthusiast, a movie buff and a cricket fan all wrapped in one. I love to capture moments through my words. Writing is my happy space, it has been a great way of putting all my thoughts out and feel liberated.


  1. I guess I have OCD,,,I’ve watched the Terminal List about 6 times, mostly when friends and family come I offer up tea and Terminal for entertainment. Some have seen it at least once and more have seen it at least twice. I just pretend I haven’t seen it in it’s entirety (fibbing there!) so I get to watch it when conversation becomes dull. And dull is not the adjective you would use watching this fantastic series. I just watched Chris Pratt on TV Insider with Jack Carr, the author of the book who did a superior job. I have to say I love everything about Chris Pratt, especially his talent, openness, and even his cuteness! Taylor K is also another favorite of the series, xx. Constance Wu was great and her performance especially toward the end when she lit into the SECDEF was awesome. Always loved a Navy man, I married one so together we wanted to say simply…WOW..and hope to see Series 2 ASAP!
