When my friend Srilakshmi sounded excited about the Matrikas notebook, I was like “Dude! Why do you have to get so excited. What new can be done with a notebook!
Her immediate response was “Get one and you will know yourself”
As per her recommendation, I got a Matrikas journal as part of the outreach program. The product surprised me even before I opened it. The packing was solid and they shipped within a day or two from my friend referring me on their Facebook page. This shows how much they care about their customers and the pace at which they work.
Coming to the notebook.
The type of journal I got was a woman’s speciality journal (But the notebook was not too girly..girly). The cover was great and the pages were of good quality. The journal immediately got me excited. I’ve been wanting to have a notebook to note down all my novel and short story ideas and there it was wrapped in red fabric with a golden feather on top. I immediately flipped open the notebook and started writing right away.
After spending more than a week with the journal, let me tell you what I liked the most. The different types of pages and sections they had built within the notebook.
It has got the following sections:
Normal pages – Normal ruled pages where you can jot down the thoughts that pop inside your mind.
Scribbling pages – Sheets of thick white paper that let you scribble your heart away
Coloring Pages – Boost your mood by doing some coloring on to the coloring sheets they have included in between the normal and scribbling pages.
Stickers – This is my favorite section. They have provided three sheets of stickers which you can creatively use in your pages.
Pages for To-do list – Matrikas makes it easy for you make a list of books to read and movies to watch
Pages for name and address – Forget the smartphones! Ink your loved ones’ number and address on a physical notebook. Trust me, its a great feeling! 🙂
On the whole, the journal is a perfect writer’s companion. It has got the canvas to make a writer writer, scribble, go crazy, and plan ahead (with the to do list and stuff). I like it? I love it. And, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking forward to getting a personal journal for themselves. The journal is priced at approximately Rs.450 and is available in four colors and variants.
