What is this?









Can you say what both these are? Both are common objects. The pictures were clicked by Atul (aged 9), again on a 'photography project' which I assigned him, in order to dissuade T.V watching. When he first showed it to me, I couldnt guess what it was (even though it was in my home!). Can you?


(Shall reveal the answer after I have your guesses. I'm sure many of you will get it right)


And here are more pictures, clicked by him from unusual angles.

  7. Geez, I didn't know until I read the others' answers! How clever of both of you! You, for coming up with an idea that doesn't involve TV or video games, and him for being so creative with his choices.

  8. The 2nd one is trickier...

  9. I'd say the first orange picture is the inside of a blender operating empty. For the second one, no idea at all. The curtain and the stairs pictures look great for their angles!! Atul does a very good job with the camera!!!

  10. Devil Mood: It is a hair brush.So clever, right?

    Jonice:Thank you!!Shall definitely pass on your compliments to Atul.He will be delighted.

    The first picture is a lampshade clicked from above.
    The second is a hair brush or a roller comb.

  14. Lovely pics, considering they are clicked by a 9-year old. And a good way to keep him away from the dumb TV set. I wish him happy holidays and let his creativity take wings.

  15. Absolutely brilliant pics for a 9 year old. Am sure he will turn out to be one of the top photographers if he takes this up as a profession. First glance difficult to guess what these are. However it is the imagination and the angles with which the pics are taken that is truely amazing for a nine year old to visualise and take. I would never have tried these out myself.

  16. I was unsure about the first pic, but guessed the rest..Atul..you have a great eye..

  17. Kudos to your son for such amazing pics and to you for encouraging his creativity.

  18. Okay, I am going to give my guesses and then I am going to look. My nephew is very clever and I am certain he has fooled me.

    1) A lampshade

    2) A vacuum cleaner brush

  20. I am sorry for the immensely late comment, but I was just seeing the various pics under wordless Wednesday, and I these are such amazing pics ( esp for a 9 year old). I didn't guess the lamp shade or the hair brush!

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
