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

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…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
