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..

  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!

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
