About




Hi, I’m Diethono Dee Nakhro, single mother currently living in Kohima, Nagaland, India.

<<<< This is me and my son Khrieto. How time flies…….it seems like it was just yesterday that he was a baby. He is a grown man now and happily pursuing his culinary dreams. I am so proud of him.

I love writing and started this blog just as a casual project to pen down my thoughts. But I have since become quite passionate about it as I slowly discovered that it is a great way to share my views on various concerns and interact with people.

What is my blog about? Nothing specific really…..as it says at the top of my page, it’s just stuff on my mind. Life, love, family, women issues, culture, things happening around me, our beautiful earth, social issues that I feel strongly about, random thoughts on anything and everything……..so, it’s really about everything under the sun :-)

Of course, you’ll find me talking a lot about my little corner of the world - Nagaland, a tiny state in the north eastern end of India. My Nagaland, it’s God’s own country, so beautiful and unique. But our society is presently at crossroads, confronted by many social and political issues. Blogging gives me the space to share my views and ideas and initiate discussions, especially with the youth.

Disability Rights is also a subject I’m passionate about.

I was involved in a car wreck in 2006 which initially left me completely paralysed from my neck down. Things did not look good at all and everyone thought that was pretty much it for me. But I wasn’t about to give up just yet and so I fought hard and was able to beat the odds. Yes, I need a walker to help me shuffle around and I need some assistance for a number of my everyday functions, but I’m not the completely dependent, bed-ridden vegetable that everyone thought I would end up as.

I am among the few lucky people who get a second chance in life and I know for sure that there is a deep purpose to this. It is a blessing, a gift bestowed on me to get it right this time and do my part to make this world a better place.

This is why I take my role as a disability advocate very seriously. Disability awareness is still very, very poor in this part of the world which means there is practically zero accessibility everywhere. People living with disabilities face gross discrimination mainly because of misconceptions and lack of understanding.

Blogging has been a godsend towards reaching out and talking to people, which I feel can help change perceptions and attitudes on disabilities and people living with disabilities. 
 
I truly believe that I can leave behind a positive print with this second chance.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you add me to your blogroll or reader or bookmarks or whatever it is that you do and do stay in touch.
