And the winners...

The first person who guessed it right was Tyler.He immediately mailed me as he did not want to give the game away.But Tyler is such a good friend. Besides, he knows who all my admirers are! :-) So, Tyler doesnt qualify.Sorry Tyler!

Niall came close, but he hedged a bit as he said "It is someone very young"

Gawpo is the winner. He did not guess it right, but he came amazingly close.(I dont know what you have against 9, Gawpo!) Yes, you are right.He is an old soul.

Misti,That was a really good interpretation.
Hershey,Katherine, the artist wanted me to tell you "Yeaaah.They do think I'm an adult"
Deejay, he loved your quilts that you put up in your blog.
Devil Mood, He wanted to know if you were a devil like the ghosts in Scooby-doo!
Bob-kat, he loves your pictures too!

The picture is done by Atul Shenoy (he wanted me to write his full name, because he says he wants to be famous through my blog!) He was so delighted to read all your comments.Thank you so much, all of you for writing in.You made the young artist very very happy.

Atul is my son--and he is 9 years old.

  1. lol.. When I called him in his 20s I meant it with respect to being a big kid trying to relive his youth.

    But would never have guessed so young

  9. Atul Shenoy,
    a most talented boy!

    Were you son mine,
    I would have guessed 9.

    But because you're so great,
    you could have done it at 8.

    Your knowing smile is a factor,
    all kicked back on your tractor.

    And your depiction of Prince,
    says YOU'RE "The Artist,"
    and he should wince.

  10. Cool kid this guy Atul, even if he is my own son. The best son, a good person and a wonderful boy. Not forgetting a far better artist than his father can ever hope to be... Keep in up my son.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
