Himali Shah


I am an Indian CPA by profession, presently working with a Fortune 500 organisation. I have been a Gold Medalist and National Level rank holder in my academic career. I love spending time with children and volunteer for an NGO in weekends. I have creative interests and hobbies like painting, sketching, quilling, calligraphy, crafting and card making besides reading fiction and non-fiction novels. I love beaches and the woods, sunrise and the sunset, starry nights and rainy evenings and nature; in all its varied shades.

Apart from being a voracious reader, I love to pen down emotions I witness and experience. I am a strong believer in the power of expression and love. To give wings to my creative passion, I started my blog Decoding Happ’y’ness. Blogging gives me inner joy and solace as it enables me to connect with people, make friends across borders, share my experiences and learn from my fellow blogger pals.

According to me the pursuit of happiness is a journey and not a destination; it ends with a satisfied smile on your lips and sound sleep at night. I dream to reach out to the world with my words and actions.

  1. Hey Himali,

    I popped by to thank you for readership of both Thread, Tread and Weave and my latest scrawl, Ranger. Thank you 🙂

    It also gives me chance to enjoy your Blog and read a little of your poetry, which presents a very gentle and compassionate side to your nature. Thank you for sharing as you do that aspect of who you are. Congratulations also on your academic achievements discussed in your About. I hope you feel suitably proud and inspired further should that be your choice. The many varied artistic and creative interests you pursue are a testament to your sharp, keen and enquiring mind and a passionate indulgence to enjoy by yourself 🙂 Good luck and best wishes with all future endeavours.

    Your About photograph left a smile so I leave a quick line. Thank you for pausing me in my cloud-riddled wander across WP.

    Were you here when I last walked this way?
    It was only yesterday.
    When I stumbling, purposefully
    Lost and glumly wandering
    Sought solitude and peace
    To avail myself of some prevalent malaise.
    I thought you were here yesterday.
    I looked for you.
    Amongst the crowds,
    Hoping I saw you again,
    alone upon the sand,
    where my eye might linger
    my pupil widen and shine
    like a rainbow after showers,
    and I,
    Carried to an ancient land
    To a time before time long ago,
    When I stood here.
    Halted then as now in my stride.
    Tied to the one same vision
    Of you
    Calm knelt upon the shore
    Pottering by hand
    Shifting sand,
    my melancholy,

    Namaste 🙂

    Indeed…“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them” – ‘…and a star to wish upon and always guide us on our way.’

    Hoping you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. Take care of one and all in your life in all ways always.

    Namaste 🙂

          • Hey Himali,

            As was my day also a pleasure and one lost in both haze and happiness when I should have been training. Ah well, there is always tomorrow for work lol 🙂

            I always take the perspective that people meet for all sorts of reasons but always because it is intended. The reason may not be known but always all becomes clear in the fullness of time, or in the light of day.

            Love and Peace. Yes that sounds a very good sentiment to me, perhaps even a revitalised daily mantra for the World. Wishing you a wonderful new day.

            Namaste 🙂
