Together we can be alright. Post 10



Today has been a rough day for me. When I have had a rough day, I usually call up or text my friends. But I do not tell them about my day or how things are going wrong for me, at the moment. I see no point in that. Instead we talk about other things--either about some happy thing which is happening in their lives or some old memory and we laugh. That cheers me up too and things do not look at bad as before. But when I called up a good friend today, I felt even more down as things were going horribly wrong in my friend's life as well and there are no easy solutions.

So imagine my delight  when I read a totally  unxepected text from another good friend which said 

Cause I've been there before
And you've been there before
But together we can be alright.
Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold eachother till we see the sunlight
 I am embedding the song above.

I texted back saying "How did you know I had a rough day?"
Pat comes the reply " Real friends always know everything about each other :-) "

Thank Lord for real friends! When I count my blessings, I count them twice.
May they never change and may they always stay around to be the rainbow, after the rain.

Love and friendship do have a power.

  4. Friendship is a very very powerful thing. And I think in true friendships, there is something like telepathy as well :)

  9. Hi Preeti,

    It did happen to me many times, when I am low and wanted to speak to my husband, and I pick my phone and I get a call from him. It happened to him as well..friendship and love is great to keep us going.

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!

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.

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.
