About

Hello dear Reader,

A warm welcome to my blog.  Lata Image

I am Lata.  I am based out of Mumbai, India.  I have been blogging since June 2014.  It has been a good journey since then.  Read all about it here.

I had initially started off with baby steps into writing non-fiction.  And have since then ventured into fiction, short stories, poems.  Blogging has helped me to discover nuances of writing and its been pure pleasure.  Blogging for me started off as a hobby and hopefully,  someday I will have a good story to turn into a book.

I want to thank the blogging community that has helped me, held my hand, guided me throughout my blogging journey.

The blog name story –

Many people ask me about my blog name.  Hmm.. I call it ‘Hot Cup of Kaapi’ which means ‘Hot Cup of Coffee’.   ‘Kaapi’ is Coffee in local south Indian languages to give a sense of my roots.  Also,  I want the blog to be a positive place,  where we can meet and share stories and comments over a cup of coffee.  It will never give out tips or ‘gyaan’ (knowledge) of anything. Also, I do not plan to be involved in politics though its a hot topic when having coffee.

Personal – 

I am married and have 2 sons.  I live in Mumbai and also work full time.

Hope you enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
