New to blogging but has a massive desire to share stories of some of the most amazing women I have had the pleasure to have experienced! Living in London for the past 11 years, before that in Sunny California, Kuwait and a short stint in a boarding in Bangalore, India. A mother of Twin Boys aged 2.5, who keep me on my toes, and who teach me something new and beautiful every day. A daughter of the most Dynamic Duo, Manu & Jyoti Nagrani, sister of two very talented, multi-faceted, and gorgeous couples, Ben & Shubhi Nagrani, Jack & Bindya Nagrani, and their beautiful families, and a wife to Mr. Kind, Generous, and Loving himself… Anand Panjabi.
My career has been colourful and global… pre-motherhood. And now I’m finding my way again with a lot of fun, challenges, and new discoveries.
Jaya has never been to Peru or Tokyo but wants to go. Having effectively grown-up with her now teen-aged kids, she continues to try new things, nothing perfected. With many identities but one voice, she blogs here as JoatMum: describing the joy of weird experiences and lessons learned along the way.
With a master’s degree in sociology, Simi Gandhi has been in working in the telecommunications industry for 26 years. Currently serving as a Director of Client Management, Simi strives to create a balance between her family and career.
Simi has always been drawn to human behavior and social issues. Having conducted a self-study on religious and cultural differences, she is passionate about sharing what she has learned about oneness and consciousness.
Simi’s love for dance and song was nurtured in her early years in Kuwait, and continued during her high school and college years. Inspired by and joined by her daughter, she recently rekindled her love for dancing on and off stage. She resides in Orange County, California, where she feels her most important job is being a conscious mother to her three beautiful children—Vaani (12), Deven (11),and Dillan (8).
