I am a mother of two charming twin girls and a dermatologist by profession. I am practising in the field of Cosmetology and Dermatology since 10 years. One of my passions is blogging and I hope to share my ideas and experiences in raising my twin daughters through my blog -"www.raisingtwinsblog.com"
This year that is 2020, due to online school the twins could spend the whole of Diwali month in Goa, celebrating with their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Goa is the birth place of my twins. They were born here and spent their early years here at my maternal home. So being Goans, the culture and traditions of Goa hold a special place in their hearts.

Mahur is a small village with a population of around 3000 with its own Gram Panchayat and School.
