Wedge heels saves the day!

Purvi (aged 6) trying out my shoes just before the party

Yet another Children’s birthday party (sigh!)
Kids AND parents invited.

Unfortunately, husband is traveling.
Fortunately, there were many women whose husbands were traveling as well.
Unfortunately, there was no Vodka.
Fortunately, there was no Conrad/Conroy too!
Unfortunately, there was one ridiculous game for mothers and children.
Fortunately, my kids decided it was too ‘dumb’. (and we did not take part)
Unfortunately, there were other ‘compulsory’ categories.
Fortunately, I enjoyed it, because I won it :-)

It was a prize, for 'the mommy with the highest heels.' And yes—the winner was me.
I have always loved wearing high heels. I always feel ‘party attire’ is incomplete without those killer heels. But this is the first time I have got a prize for it!

Yeah—I guess you could say the party wasn’t so bad after all. Despite there being no husband and no Vodka !!

  1. Ahhhhhhh.. I would have loved to be in that party.. I would have given you stiff competition, lady! :D

    I am all about the high heels. My appa came to visit me and he had normal reactions to the rest of the apartment. He step into my walk in closet, he turns and looks at me and gives me a lecture on how I should not waste money on shoes and hand bags!
    :D

    No outfit is complete without high heels, period!

  2. I love high heels too. I had to have serious surgery on my right leg some years ago and my foot and the lower part of my leg are partially paralyzed and my main worry was whether I would be able to wear heels or not again.
    It took a lot of practise but by golly, I can wear heels!

    Hi ps,

    Congrats for the prize! My wife too got a prize like that soem time ago in a ball that we attended in Delhi.

    Soory about the vodka, I know being a woman it must sound it a little too ambitious, but like me, you can expore the possibility of keeping a hip flask. And call it a purse flask, or something.

    You daughter looks cute in the heels. My daughters too do this cat walk all the time.
    Cheers!

    Raj:Thank you! appreciate your taking time to comment.

    Kulpreet:ah--a hip flask! As it is I'm branded a non-conformist.And also not that much of an adddict.So no hip flask for me! :-)

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
