shameem rizwana sharu4ever vintage madras

Hello ! Welcome to my cozyΒ corner of the internet.

I’m Shameem Rizwana. You can call me Sharu. I started this blog as a way to document the fragments of my life I wish I could cling on to a bit longer. I enjoy travelling, experiencing, reading and many more. But most of all, I love sharing it with you.Β You can read about my different experiences and travel here and also about the mundane stuff because, yay for keeping it real. πŸ˜‰

Writing down my thoughts has given me a medium to breathe out the words from my mind and I very passionately enjoy it. It has been rewarding in so many ways, but there are a couple of very special opportunities that I got cause I write :

Interviewing Joshna Chinappa for Femina [2015]

Collaborative Authoring my first book ‘Entangled Lives’ with Blogadda [2014]

I can be anything. But I chose to blog, and I will thrive to be a good one at it. <3

You can contact me for PR, queries or just to say hello at

I’m so glad you’re here.

    You seem to be scaling well for your blog..Happy blogging Shameem..
    BTW, why do you use vintagemadras as twitter handle? …just out of curiosity!!

    1. So happy that you found your blogging mojo, finally. No matter how irregular or late we blog, it is always fun πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for your kind words Arv (your name pls ? :)) ..

      And yes, I’m vintagemadras on twitter. Were you redirected here from my twitter post ? πŸ™‚

      1. True. Arvind is actual name. No I didn’t have an opportunity to do so. just saw the same being mentioned on your page! So what is connection with vintage?

  5. Hey Sharu! Been a long time! Can see that you are not participating in A to Z this time! May I ask why? Get out of the writer’s block, darling! Would love to read your writes. Try to participate. Let’s have fun like last time! πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Shalzz… I’m so happy that you asked, it really means a lot. But yes, I’m suffering a block this time. I don’t think I can wing-it like last time. I need a theme to stick to, so that atleast I can try to get over my block and write something. But I’m not able to come up with any themes πŸ™ I’m so frustrated Shalzz. That’s why I thought I’ll give it a miss this year, although I love A-Z πŸ™
