While it feels a bit sad to see Monica, my co-conspirator in this little Devi adventure, move onto her own greener pastures, I for one believe that the South Asian media landscape needs as much substance and talent as possible and I'm excited to see what "indian-ish" things Monica will do next.
As for this site: Not much is gonna change, really. Hard to believe it's only been 3 months since this has begun because hearing from you guys has become a part of my everyday life. So cyber-weird...!
Look out for some changes in the site in the coming months, including a roster of guest bloggers to talk about all things I cannot...or at least should not...! Curious? How about an Indian daddy blogger married to a diva Devi, an Indian sex-expert, the quintessential Indian Aunty to give you advice on all things Indian-protocol, and somebody who can cook (Monica's departure leaves the blog sorely lacking in that area). We are also going to start interviewing high-profile "Devis with Babies" from all walks of life, including a woman who has started her own line of "Baby Einstein books" targetted at Indian children; a mommy-by-day-jewelry-designer-by-night; and a photographer who takes the most unique and meaningful photos of children I have ever seen.
And that's just in January. Ladies: We're just getting started!
Also stay tuned for the launch of our sister-site, Brown Girl Guide, an atelier of sorts for all things Brown style. Think of it as your favorite boutique and your best friend--the one who tells you the truth about the dress, makes you laugh, and explains how those models in the magazines get those awesomely shiny legs--all rolled up in one. Sign up here.
As always, please continue to let "Devis with Babies" know what you like, what you don't like, what you want more of, what you want less of. You can reach me at email@example.com, and of course through the comments to the posts.
Bon voyage Monica, hope you keep reading ladies--I'm loving being on this motherhood ride with you...
