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

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…
