I am Priyanka Bharadwaj, an independent business consultant by profession and a relationship coach by passion. I am currently writing a book on Marriages in India. If you’d like to contribute your experiences, you can write to me at marriagebrokerauntie-dot-gmail.com.

This is a newsletter where I pontificate on love, relationships, marriage, culture, society and India. It’s a concoction of observations, theories, stories - some real, some not, ideas (mostly from the future) and sometimes, just rants.

This is a bed where my thoughts, tired from swirling in my mind, come to rest. They lay quietly, sometimes intertwined with yours, in a safe loving embrace. But not always. No, there are times when we are strangers, shrivelled in indifference and unable to comprehend each other. And, it’s okay.

Writing for nearly two decades, I’ve realise that who I am doesn't matter. You are you, and I am me. What matters are the words you read, and the thoughts they kindle. Sometimes, they reach you when you most need them, and that gives me the strength to keep writing.

P.S. The name, Shapely Gal, is a play on the Nobel Prize winning economist David Gale and Lloyd Shapley, who proposed a mathematical solution to the “stable marriage” problem.
