November Rain

Hopped over to devil mood's and her post just compelled me to put up "November Rain".It brought back fond memories of 'slash worshipping days':-) (Well, secretly,I still so!) I used to rave about this one so much to my dad, and used to try and get him to share my enthusiasm about it. :-) (Dad and my son are both November borns,and strangely, it was raining when my son was born) November Rain is always special.




"And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain,
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
'Cause nothin' lasts forever
Even cold November rain"

  2. Ah lovely :)
    I must confess I was never a G'n'R fan back in the days...but I like them now, in a retro sort of way.
    These lyrics make a lot of sense. I love November, I love rain (sometimes hheh)...
    BTW, thanks for the lovely e-mail - loved the words and the picture was also beautiful!

  5. Oh yes! I loved Guns n Roses and still do. I like to play them in my car and turn the volume up a little bit.

    BTW - I visited your art web site and think it is wonderful! That is really something to be proud of :-)

  6. aha..it rains on your son's birthday too...happens to me everytime.
    There can be a clear blue sky on the 22nd of june and it wouldn't matter..before the day ends..it always rains.
    Kinda like the gods crying that I had to leave them...similar to mother's crying when their son goes to another country.

    ofcourse, in heaven's case, they could be tears of happiness, "YAY..harshal finally left, no more pranks being pulled in heaven for a few decades...ahh..peace at last"

    lol

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

It's a book very close to my heart!

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…
