In those “instants,” our lives may experience joy and sorrow. Being Rudri explores the moments of gratitude that help us navigate the pendulum between happiness and sadness.
About Rudri Bhatt Patel
Welcome! I am a lawyer turned freelance writer, essayist and editor. On staff at Literary Mama and the co-founder and co-editor of the literary journal, The Sunlight Press, my essays have appeared in The Washington Post, Brain, Child, ESPN and elsewhere. I am currently working on a memoir on grief and culture and how it provides me perspective on life’s ordinary graces. I invite you to appreciate the ordinary with me. I hope my daily practice of seeing the magic in the mundane helps you celebrate and find more of these moments in your life too.
