I’m Manasi, and Majaama is my blargh.  I like green, language that dances, easily hummable songs, computer games, food and taking photos of my favourite people.

majaama  /məˈdʒɑːmə/  (phrase)

Feeling well, happy, contented.

‘Majaama’ implies a relaxed, untroubled acceptance of whatever life hands you.  Life may not be perfect – it rarely is – but it is good enough.  And that’s the essence of ‘majaama’.  It’s the best Gujarati word ever, and, if you’re in the market for one, a superb motto.
