About Me


I am Alpana Deo, founder-editor-writer and person behind Mother’s Gurukul. I have a Masters degree in Business Administration. After working in India for sometime, my marriage brought me to the USA.  By God’s grace I had always been blessed with good and supportive friends. With a desire to stay connected to management field, I have volunteered at some places and made new friends and connections. During this process, I got back to my hobby of writing.

I have written and still writing articles for a newsletter. I am a Guest contributor for few other websites namely Parents, Indian Moms Connect, World of Moms, Hindi Gym, Bnobology.Other than that, I am a NRI Contributor & Citizen Journalist for the prestigious Times of India (TOI). Also, you can read my interview on  various other parenting platforms.

Technically speaking, I am a home maker (another area of management, I would say), mother of two cute angels.  During these years, I have explored lot of new things. My perspective got different shades after my daughter’s birth. Every stage was and still is a learning experience. With a thought of sharing my experiences with other fellow Moms, Mother’s Gurukul came into existence.

I am happy to take up my hobby of writing and passion for management together to build this website.

You can connect with me on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Twitter Please feel free to share your feedback – I would love to hear from you.

Wish me luck!!

Hello Florence. Thanks for visiting and taking time to write a comment. Glad that you like my page..:) I have checked your website. I really like when you said ‘Balancing our heritage and our new culture.’ in your ABOUT page. I too believe in this notion of preserving our culture, heritage and passing it to the next generation. I agree that sometimes it is challenging but its nice to accept challenges sometime…:)

Once again thanks for stopping by. Keep in touch!!
