How unfortunately true!

It takes a woman twenty years to make a man of her son, and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him.

  8. Very true, and I agree with devil-mood. Sometimes our daughters fall, too. However, they do seem to get up quicker and learn their lesson a wee bit faster.

  12. Hello there, wisdom-dancing woman friend. I am poking my head out of its hole and loving what you've done with the place.

    My dream is to exchange paint for clay with you some day. Wouldn't that be grand?

    Let's see now-----you look like you are about 17 now, so I am guessing that thirteen years ago, you must have looked to be about 3. Am I close?

  14. Okay, and now for this: If a man is made foolish by a woman, she has only stepped where the ice is thinnist. And he needed to know where that was. Yes, he should blush. And then he should be thankful.

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…

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…
