Through the eyes of a child

Isn't this a lovely picture? And what an unusual angle it has been clicked from! My 9 year old clicked this one.
The kids school is having their christmas break.Yesterday, to keep them "creatively occupied" ( I am totally against kids watching T.V, or playing computer games endlessly--though I do let them once in a way) I handed my son the camera and told him to take five interesting pictures.
Of all that he clicked, I loved this one.
Reminded me of what my house must have looked like to the lizard that came in :-) (see my post 'The uninvited visitor')

  1. You realy do manage to look at things in a different way..seeing the world through the eyes of your child or a lizard. I think it is one of the most important keys to world peace (if such a thing can be considered!) Learn to see the world through the eyes of your neighbour..try to understand their point of view..you made reference to this in an earlier post and I wholeheartely encourage you to never lose your hunger and passion to understand. We can make a difference!

  2. I totaly agree with you that too much of TV and games spoil the kids.You are lucky that your son really took the picture.If I was the kid who got the camera,I would have tried to dismantle it(shall I say reverse engineer!)and put it back...except that some left over parts will be there which I would never know where to fit!

  3. What a great idea - to tell your child to take pictures instead of watch TV! I'm sure your children are more creative than their tv-watching friends!

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)

Like it? Tell me in comments.

Greetings from Delhi! Blog marathon begins. Post 1

Hi all,
This is my first post for my blog marathon that starts today. Many of you, wait for my blog marathons, and have written to me telling me how you like to start your day with my posts. I feel happy to be connected to you, and become a part of your daily lives! Thank you for the privilege.
I am typing this from the skies—from 35,000 feet above sea level. I shall post this later today, when I get a wifi connection.I left home at 6.45 am this morning and I am headed to Delhi for the times lit fest which is taking place at India Habitat Centre. The other authors in my panel are Ravinder Singh (who is also a friend), Andaleeb Wajid and Seema Anand. The great thing about litfests for authors is that we get to meet our fellow authors.But for events like these, we would be cocooned in our solitary writing wells.


Travel is exhausting. I had just got back from a wonderful session at Kolkata. From Kolkata, I had flown directly to Kochi, where I was the chief guest at the inauguration ofa boo…
