  3. what was it like before internet? well...it was world full of arrogant postmen and encyclopedias. The postmen knew that they are the only way you can maintain a long distance relationship... encyclopedias were the only way to get all the info you need without going through a lot of trouble.

    Then...it arrived. The internet. It humbled the postmen(though not all) and encyclopedias became equivalent to mere trophies to be displayed to guests.

    P.S., no, not your name, the other P.S., I am not actually back to blogging yet,just coming to update that art blog...
    its a new blog, like a small baby, needs to be fed or it shall die.
    Off I go... 4 days...

    People were much less annoyed on buses.

  8. Without the internet I would not have made contact with many of the people that are now part of my routine. I like to drop by and 'see' people like you! In this way it enriches our lives even if it makes other parts more frustrating at times!

  10. The inter web thingy is now so much a part of our lives ..we take it for granted I think. I am a richer person in so many ways because of it..being able to cite you as one of my best friends though we have never met is the best thing..and it gets better..as there are others out there who I can not imagine living without their words and minds being active in my life and time!I am daily so greatful to be able to do this!

We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

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…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
