Tag--six inconsequential things.

Mary of Momathon tagged me.

The Rules:
Link to the person that tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
************************************************************
Well—are any habits really non-important? To others of course they will be non important—but to yourself, every little detail, that goes into making YOU, is important. Right? At least it is for me!

Anyway since I have been tagged, I decided to do it—here are 6 things about me—Important or not!

1. Deep Hatred is an alien emotion for me. I can’t ever remain angry with anyone for long. No matter what they have done. I have had some truly God-awful experiences—things which people did or said to me. I remember the incidents—but the people I have forgiven. It is weird because I have tried to make myself hate them —but I don’t. I forgive so easily. I don’t know why I’m like this—but have accepted that this is how I am.
2. I respond to every single mail I get. (Except the forwards—if they are exceptionally good, I respond to them too)
3. I care truly, deeply and passionately for animals. I abhor cruelty and cringe when I see the extent to which some people can go.
4. Intellectual arrogance and considering yourself smarter than others is one thing I can’t stand. I truly believe that we are all gifted in different ways. Some of us are great at writing—some at Math—some at Art—some at being a wonderful human being. I don’t think it makes one any less than the other.
5. I can laugh and laugh even in the most serious of situations. I find humour in almost anything.
6. Fitness is almost an obsession for me. I work out regularly, eat healthy and drink lots of water. I actually enjoy doing my crunches and my weights.
The ones I’m tagging are:
Devil Mood from 'Love is stronger than pride':(I know you must have done similar tags before.But I so love reading what you write!)
Scotty from frog Prince: Your insights are deep.
Prats Retrospections: Would love to know you a bit better
Tys: Waiting to read !Do it NOW!!
Misti from hope : Want to know more about you

Shru from high spot: Reveal!

Hershey from cave of Wonders: Want to know what you have to say, my friend!

(I know that makes it seven--but anothe little quirk I have is that I hate rules!)

  4. This actually sounds very interesting...though most of your quirks seem familiar....
    Feels like i've been ghosted :)
    Except for the 6th point...just don't know how you do it...

    But you translate that love for people very well and it shows in your work ...

  6. It's such a great thing you can't ever remain angry with anyone for long. That's definitely a good attitude. Keep it up ,sexy mom! ;0)

  7. well, in my books, you failed miserably!!!

    none of the 6 (and even the 7th one you slipped in) are inconsequential or non-important! did you notice?

    all of them were either very relevant, useful or meaningful.

    guess you don't find anything irrelevant or quirky in life? ;-)

  9. All 6 I relate to. Esp the 1st one. Forgiveness and forgetting comes eacy to me. These days am reconsidering forgetting..

  10. hehehe will do :)
    But I must say your list doesn't sound like a list of quirks, even though I prefer it. Isn't it better than "I always put on the right sock before the left?" ;)

  12. Thinking aloud:You know me so well! You are good at figuring me out!:-)

    Rads:How to forget? The more I try, the more indelible it becomes!

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
