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.

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
