Magic of faith

little girl
Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  1. oh what a beautiful post about great mommy power at work - thanks for sharing these beautiful moments. I would like to be six again as well - to whole heartedly believe in something like that and then make it happen by sheer power of believing.

  2. oh my.. I've got goosebumps.. this is amazing.. :)
    Faith does miracles at times :)
    So sweet of the sun not to show up ;)
    I too love children that age :D In fact I sometimes feel children should be at least 3 yrs old when born ;) and let's hope little Purvi never learns to lie :-S

  5. Pink Dogwood: How trusting they are--How they believe in you.It is so humbling, isn't it?

    Shruti: She will change for sure.But for now, i cherish it.

    Brocasarea: but why 'lol'? Truly it was a magical moment. I guess only a parent or a woman would understand.

    Suma: Oh yes--how they believe you.

  7. I love that age too...my younger one is similar to that age...and I know what you're saying.
    The faith in which they put themselves into our hands...its so heart-tugging.
    I can imagine the "my mommy bestest" scene...
    aaawww....*hugs* to lil P...and may her faith remain strong always

  10. Wow it was such a sweet post.. all kids r adorable and lil girls especially.. Just love them :)

  11. Lovely, so sweet and innocent. I really hope the sun was not that bright that day, it is not fair for the kids to stand under the sun for so long.

  12. One doesnt have to be six to see/feel thier amma's miracles! I feel it still. Rather I feel it now more than ever. Faith really does move mountains! For you it moved the clouds to a favourable position :-)
    A GREAT post

  13. Awwwwwww...My gosh!! How sweet!!

  14. I absolutely love it whenever you write about kids, or about the bonding between a mother and her child. Mainly bcos many things which you communicate thru 'mama moments,' I can relate to my own life a well. :)

    I too know a mother and her child just like Atul,Purvi and their mom. The mother is as caring as theirs, but the son can't claim to be as sweet as Atul or Purvi.

  15. You just can't beat an 'aaaww' moment like that, can you?

    Great post, PS.

    :-)

  16. Gosh...that so sweet!

  17. You know I still believe that my mom can talk to the Sun and other higher powers - what she says always comes true! Some things like a moms faith never change i guess, regardless of whether you are 6 or 60! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I guess things work that ways...Their innocence and trust is always rewarded :)

    Blog hopped from someplace.You write well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wanna have a lil girl just like Purvi :)

  22. Wonderful post.
    This would make a great children's book. I could envision all sorts of things that would make the sun not shine as hot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. :( How bad of me asking the Sun to be hotter so that white chiks can be more open with their dressing... I should have considered sweet children like ur daughter too....
    From now on, I am offering my cap to any small kid who's walking in the hot sun.... :)
    All the best for whatever she is doing in her sports day function....

    ReplyDelete
  24. Awwwwwwww..SOOOOOOO SWEET!

    u know i was begining to get skeptical n cyical n say today's kids no more have that innocence we used to have and they are missing the most imp part of childhood...but ur li'l one is making the best of it..thanks to her gr8 mommy!

    I'm so Jealous of that innocence..when everything is taken at face value and one doesnt know wat it is to read btw lines or lie!

    ReplyDelete
  25. that was sweet post!
    I can exactly relate to you. I have a 6 year old son too...Many a times I have wanted to be kindergartner.

  27. A nice way to describe a 6 year old ;)

    Now, can you please make the sun go away here in B'lore too :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awww! You are such a good mummy. Six is a great age. I loved it when Olivia was six. She will be eight next week. I had to check the calendar to be sure because it seems with her attitude lately she is going on sixteen! I hope it gets better ;P

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.
