About

Bhumika’s Boudoir started as this place where I could talk about all that happens in my life back in early 2000s. Then, I was someone who loved to laugh, and be a part of high drama and stormy emotion as often as possible. Drama is something I avoid as I have gotten older and choose instead to just laugh as often as possible.

Over time, I have also stopped using the blog to share my life because now I am older, wiser, more prudent. I also run a business now and I hate needless explanations and spending energy on debunking myths.

Being creative, and communicating with people get me going. I enjoy all the good things in life even those that are slightly risqué, and apologise little, if ever, for all that I do. Literature is a passion and so is music.

I’m not a huge movie fan; but I’m definitely into sitcoms and TV series. It’s really strange that I find it such a chore to sit through an hour and a half or three hours of a movie, but can binge watch TV series for well over twenty-four hours.

I’ve often wondered why the colour purple doesn’t have a proper vernacular name in any of the Indian languages.

    Purple in Hindi is जामुनी रंग, though some people use बैगनी to describe purple. However, actual बैगनी is a colour between violet and purple. And in Malayalam it’s ധൂമ്രവര്‍ണ്ണം.
    I believe if you research you will get a precise word in other vernacular languages.

    • Baingani or Jamuni is again not the name given specifically to a colour. It’s almost an afterthought. I’m afraid I don’t know how to read Malayalam. Maybe you can explain. Later. So yes, most Indian languages don’t recognise the colour purple. Hence the use of ‘proper’. 🙂
