Hey there! I’m Rajal Patel and I’m so excited you stopped by. Thank you so much! 🙂
A little something about me – so I am just another twenty-something year young girl full of dreams, full of aspirations and someone just like you who are trying to carve out a niche in this competitive world. I have been born and brought up in Gujarat, India. Talking about my educational qualification, I have a masters’ degree in Industrial Chemistry where I learned a hell lot of things. EVERYTHING. Right from how a product is born from scratch to how it benefits humanity. Be it cosmetics, pharmaceutics, polymers, paints, or petroleum, we learned it all.
I am an avid learner. You know what! My passion for education and curiosity for learning new things has helped me fetch four university gold medals during my graduation and post-graduation. That is exactly what fuels me every single day-learning. But what is learning without sharing? Nothing, right!. So here I am with my websites writing about all the things that will help you learn something new, stay motivated and of course stay beautiful & fashionable. This is my home on the internet. And I’d make sure I teach and pass on everything that I learn. Whether it is investing in a good product, reading a good book or letting you know about that absolute essential piece of jewelry you must have, I’ll always try to write posts and create content that can help you transform your life and make better choices.
I thought a lot about the kind of names I wanted for all my initiatives. Something special. Something meaningful. I knew I wanted to personalize it. My first initiative – an e-learning platform had to have this name: SHIKSHASTRA. It is made up of two words – SHIKSHA which means to learn and ASTRA, which in Hinduism means a supernatural weapon presided over by a deity having spiritual power. And I’ve always felt that if u have the knowledge, it can work as your weapon of mass construction. And so I came up with this name.
My second initiative is again something which will teach you art, craft, and DIYs. For me, art is very personal. It holds a different meaning for different people. You might have noticed how if given a few colors, we would all paint and make something different from each other. That is because somewhere it comes from the soul. I, too love making art. I also host regular art, painting and handmade jewelry exhibitions every year. And hence, I came up with the name JHHAROKE which is a kind of stone window projecting out of the building. Just like how art is. The window to our souls.
And finally, the third one THE BEAUTY NOTES. My beauty notes to teach you the art and basics of makeup and skincare and will help you stay beautiful & glowy inside out. Learn tutorials, hacks and tips & tricks. Basically, all that the ‘Desi girl’ needs. And the best part is, you can get HINDI videos too.
And finally, a The Beauty Notes in Hindi so that all of you who are more comfortable in that language can feel at home.
