About Aditi...

Hi, my name is Aditi De.

I live in Bangalore, southern India.

I'm an author, editor, dreamer, traveller, foodie, blogger, photographer, media professional. I'm in love with life...

Guess what? I wrote an article about Postcrossing that was published in The Hindu Business Line newspaper on February 22, 2013. Here's a link to the article on my blog:

And another link to a blog about the books I've done so far:

My favourite actors include George Clooney, Patrick Dempsey, Richard Gere, Meryl Streep, Shabani Azmi, Irrfan Khan, Frances McDormand, Jonathan Bailey, Penelope Cruz, Miguel Angel Silvestre....

~ I love illustrations and art postcards. Such as the 'two old ladies' postcards by the Finnish artist Inge Look, for instance. Or Marit Björnegran from Sweden. Or Viktoria Kirdiy from Russia. Or Gotochi cards from Japan. Or cartoons. Or Moomim. Or Pippi Longstocking. Or Anne Geddes. Or B/W cards.

~ Postcards of art and artists, both classical and contemporary, would make me very happy.

~ I've loved football and its stars since the Mexico World Cup in 1970. I still enjoy watching it. My favourite stars include Pele, Messi, Buffon, Ronaldo (of Brazil), Diego Forlan, Iker Casillas, etc etc. Dozens more. :-)

~ I'm passionate about food, too. So, postcards of recipes/ traditional foods/ cooks/ cooking are very welcome.

I like postcards of most types, though. I'm sure each of your postcards will tell me a story about you. Looking forward to that experience.
