10 day challenge.Post 4. Seven wants.


This is a part of the 10 day challenge which I started here.


Post 3 is Seven Wants.





  1. 3 holidays in Maldives each year. (Each Holiday lasting for 7 days will do :-))
  2. A  foot and body massager who/which does a super-terrific job.
  3. A Painting holiday in Venice.(Intend doing that in the near future.Satish does not know. Heh heh heh)
  4. Luxurious Spa and beauty treatments every week.(preferably on mondays so i have something to look forward to)
  5. A book writing machine. I just think and it writes out everything without my having to slog.
  6. A robot like Richie Rich’s Irona to take care of all the housework.And oh yes, while I am at it, a Butler like  Cadbury would be nice too. 
  7. A quiet place to which nobody has access but me. I want absolute silence in this space. Not a single sound. Not even a leaf should stir. It should be completely zen like—lots of light, greenery, minimalist furnishing and Ohm symbols and Buddha statues in it.
 Just realised after I wrote out the above that my wants are truly not 'unachievable' --except 5 and 6 perhaps :) 
And I do have a very zen like room full of my books and paintings and my beloved writing desk.Nobody is allowed to enter unless I allow. This is my private study, my sanctuary. Will post pics sometime.

See you tomorrow with 6 places :)

    1. That sanctuary like place sounds so amazing. A place designated to do one's likings. I think thats so so important. And I guess even more important to an author!

    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

    Forty seven things I learnt.

    I turned 47 today. This is a picture clicked today. I received a lot of flowers today.


    The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that I have in my life. Today, I am living my dream. There's nothing more I ask from life!
    The path hasn't been easy at all. There have definitely been so many downs. When I look back, I think for every victory of mine, there has been a failure. But I have fought. I am a fighter. I never give up.
    Persistence pays.
    Age has made me wiser, calmer and very very sure of many things.
    Here are 47 things I have learnt along my path. These are things I practise.

    1. Say NO to negativity of any kind.
    2. People will treat you the way you allow them to.
    3. If people really care for you, they will make time; Otherwise they will make excuses.
    4. Be grateful for every one who is kind to you.
    5. Better to have TWO genuine friends who truly care for you than a HUNDRED friends who aren't so genuine.
    6. Fitness is everything.
    7.Always have a 'nest…

    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…
