about me

Sara Siddiqui Chansarkar is an Indian American. Her husband came to Columbus Ohio from India in 2004 for a short project which extended beyond the realm of months. She then followed him with their two-year old son wound around her neck because marriages are not known to survive continents.
Her heart was ripped asunder for leaving parents, sisters and brothers behind but Columbus welcomed her with open arms. It has been home since then. Never has she felt like an oustsider.She loves the diverse and inclusive culture of the city and enjoys its four distinct seasons.
She is an Electronic Engineer with an MBA. She will forever be indebted to her parents for educating her beyond their means. Anything good, she says, is the genes she inherited. All the bad is a result of mutations.
She works as an Informational Technology lead, reviewing codes and systems during the day, cooking in the evening and then curling up with a book at night. A cup of hot tea brings a smile to her lips, especially if it’s made by her husband.
Her thoughts find words while on her usual Fitbit-powered solitary walks or in the shower. She then downloads them to her blog Her son, now a towering teenager, teaches her the common colloquial expressions and corrects her pronunciations. He is also her best critic.
