Know Me

Hi Guys!

So first things first, who am I??


My name is Shivam and I’m a 19 yr old boy living in India, studying fashion designing. I’m in my 2nd year of college. I blog under the pseudo name “Silas” in order to pay tribute to my favorite show which ended last year *sad face* i.e The Vampire Diaries.

Why did I start blogging?

I found blogging as a very interesting and unique way to channel my energy. It helps me with my boredom. Also I want people to know about what I have to say, don’t really think I can change world but ya I guess you will enjoy what I have to say.

My blog URL – 

TheKayasthaJournal is my blog url. Many people have asked me what it means. Well long story short, Kayastha is clan of people originally from Northern India. Like Punjabi, Marwari…. Kayastha is also another caste of India. Its very different, and like very different from other caste’s in India. I’m a pure Kayastha, (both my parents are kayastha) and  hence I thought to name my journal, TheKayasthaJournal.

What all do I blog about?

My blog has some hand picked collection of photographs, travel photographs, etc. I fancy photo challenges.

You will find a lot of amateur poetry stuff by me in response to daily prompts and other topics.

I have three special days of a week –

Floral Weekends, on sundays,  where I talk about a new strange flower around us.

Artful Weekends, on saturdays, where I show my artwork/diy work/etc.

Thoughtful Wednesdays – Where I write some self made thoughts or post some that I loved around the internet.

I participate in Cee Neuner’s Flower of the day, on every monday. So you’ll see a new flower on my blog every start of the week. To check my latest posts, click on BLOG on top menu bar, or if you’d like to browse by category, there’s some picked category on top or you will find many categories on side bar. You can also find me on twitter @KayasthaJournal, Instagram @the_kayastha_journal and Tumblr @The Kayastha Journal.

For my 4th semester in college, we have to record our journey at college. So I decided to blog about it. If you wish to see my college related wok, you will find it under “Visual Culture” on top menu bar.

I hope you’d enjoy reading to what I have to say! And thank you for patiently reading this. 🙂
