Shades Of Words

Home made notice-board


Even though there are phones with reminders and fancy apps, I still like to see an old fashioned notice board in  my home. Now, the lovely jute bags in which we get our Basmati rice have been piling at home and I just wasn’t sure how to recycle them. Then one day I had a brain-wave – how about a foam notice-board with a bit of earthen tone. I got a few dollars worth of scrap book paper, foam board, glue and scissors from Michaels – as shown below:

After half an hour of cutting and pasting , I came up with this.

A couple of binder clips and my creation now adorns my bedroom wall. It’s not as finished as I would like it to be but I am happy with it. Next time I would avoid using the cello-tape and would like to get a better control on the scissors for a straight line cut

Before talking about who we are, we’d like to tell you a bit about how and why Shades of Words came into being. It all started with the idea of “A place where we could share with likeminded people about things we enjoy. From books to music to movies to travel; Shades of Words was to be a place about the best of our experiences” We thought about why should anyone read us? The answer was that whatever we review would be a mix of our experience of the thing along with interesting and useful information about it. So in case you are reading us regularly or even checking us out once in a while then we have succeeded in our efforts someway somewhere. Who are we? Known as Kapil Sood and Vipula Gupta, we thought of Shades of Words on one fine Sunday afternoon. Tired of writing interesting RFP’s and project documentation; we decided to give this a shot. Yes! We work in Indian IT industry. Cupid struck us while were innocently slogging together on the highly intricate job of formatting and beautifying documents! And since then, we have been working together to establish Shades of Words as a place that we can claim as ours. (Because buying a house is still years away!) What else? Kapil also writes some blogs which you can read here and here.
