  5. You know what, you are my inspiration to write poems. I'm still learning though :P

  6. And you know what, thank you for giving me the idea of writing (c) and do not copy below the poem. I decided to got for it after I indeed had one of my poems copied :|

  7. I really do not know what magic you have that you simply string together some simple words and weave out something that is "fantabulous".

    I have to ask a question regarding copyright. Is it simply enough to put copyrighted below the post or you have to actually register it?? i do have some work planned and feel simply adding copyrighted may not be enough!

    Thanks for the morning dose :) :)

    cheers

  11. Reflections: Thank U Nancy. You really have been one of my biggest 'encouragers'. Much appreciate it.

    Arnab: Thank you. Appreciate your letting me know.

    Nidhi: thank u!

    Shantharam: Thank you. Different countries have different laws regarding copyright. It is complicated. If you google it you'll get all the info you seek.

    partywithneha: As flattering as it is supposed to be, to be copied, I really abhor it. I cherish individuality. Glad to 'inspire' you..Did notice that you put a graphic and a copyright symbol exactly in the same manner that I do for all my poems. Therefore I have felt this compelling urge to change my format in presenting my poems.

    Santasizing: Thank you so much.

    Ashwini: i wish you were Bon Jovi or aerosmith! :P :) Thanks for that fabulous compliment.

    Monika; thank you so much.


    Ajay: Thank you :)

  22. Hmmmm...while I read your poem, I'm imagining myself sitting in a cafe sipping espresso, staring in space and thinking. Why? I don't know :)

    Beautiful. I love your imagination.

    :)

  23. Yes, the same words can travel those distances and you are left wondering whether it is the time that give them their meaning and significance. And yes there always are actors involved too.
    And I think it was more about beautifully conveying those very thoughts, than the imagination, that is so remarkable about the poem :).

  24. Beautifully done. It feels like there is a deep story behind this. Like the characters need to speak.

  29. Hi Preeti, I have changed the "copyright" message on my poems. Since the copyright message is a universal symbol, I am unable to change it :|

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…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

Hey there!

All of you, the regular readers of this blog know that I do a blog marathon each year. It's a term coined by yours truly. It means that I will be posting a new entry, every single day, the whole of this month! So don't forget to hit 'subscribe' on top of this blog (see the button there? Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.


One thing that I follow on this blog, is that it is a happy place. WE do not have control over wh…

My best friend's wedding :)

The above is where I am staying right now! It is an amazing place :)
I am here for the wedding of one of my closest friends.

You can see videos of me dancing on my Instagram account in my story (which will be available for 24 hours).

Here are some more snap shots from today.

How can any Indian wedding be complete without Mehndi?

As you can see from the above pics, as well as from my Insta feed, I am having a really really good time.

More updates tomorrow.
(I left home at 3.00 am today, as I had an early morning flight)

Stay tuned!
