True Love--it cant get any purer than this!

I might have become a published author. I might even call myself an avid writer. I might be able to say that I make good portraits. (click on link to see my latest pictures)

But nothing, absolutely nothing I do, can ever match up to this !(click on image to enlarge)



Awwwwww...!! I couldn't help sharing this.

I  felt totally blessed and felt like the luckiest person in the world!

I saw myself through my daughter's eight year old eyes.
To her, I am perfect. (for now.)

Who am I to deny?!

    Really brilliant.
    But comparing your sketches with that made by your daughter is like comparing streets with superhighways.

  36. Being a mother to two daughters, I can relate to this. I'm always flattered and bewildered when I get gifts like this one you've been given.

    As adults we know we aren't perfect, yet to our children, who idealize everything-we are the BEST.

    There is an important lesson here I think. Thanks for sharing Purvi's grand vision with us...she is bang on the money. Princess Preeti IS fabulous. xoxo
    (But then again, so is Princess Purvi)

  37. Chakkarummaaaaaa and a huge hug to Purvikutti! How about posting her latest picture?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Maddy: Chakkarumma wil surely giveher :) Do add me on FB where all the latest pics are visible to my friends. I dont share my childrens pictures on the Internet which is open to all. Somehow feel very strongly about it--especially now, after becoming a published author. Am sure you understand.

    Gillian: Oh yes--their love is totally overwhelming :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. So blessed indeed! :)

    You both will ALWAYS be perfect for each other! :)

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.
