Delhi Book fair and the last Tuesday prompt!

And so it goes. (with due reverence to Kurt Vonnegut)
 This is the last Tuesday  of February and it has been a truly GREAT  month. I met so may of you who have been taking part in the 'Tea for two tuesdays', yesterday at Delhi, during the event at World Book fair.
It was fantastic meeting you all!

I am truly blown away and deeply indebted with all the love you have shown me!  Some of you came from places as far as three hours from Delhi and waited so patiently to meet me.

If you wish to read about the book fair and the event in detail, Aabha has written a post about it here.

Here are two picture from the event (thanks to Aabha again) :

Signing books.

Reading out parts of the book. With me is Vintage (an imprint of Random House) Editor Sheeba.



Now like all good things, the 'Tea for two tuesdays' should also come to an end.. and this is the last one in the series. I do feel bad it is coming to an end, but I feel wonderful about the camaraderie that it has created!  After all, that is truly what blogging, writing and books are about, isn't it?
The connect that words create and the fact that our minds can meet before our physical selves have!

Here is the last prompt in the 'Tea for two (and a piece of cake) Tuesdays".

And this time it is just to get to know YOU better. It has nothing to do with Tea for two or a piece of cake!.

Answer the following questions about yourself:

1. If you had Rs.50,000 to just blow up (you have to spend it on YOURSELF. Giving to Charity or buying gifts for others not allowed), what would you spend it on and why?


2. Name three of your closest friends (not family or spouse) and say why you love them.


3. Name three books which have profoundly affected you and which you would recommend to everyone to read.


4. If you know for certain that you can never ever fail, what would you attempt to do?


5. What is THE ONE THING that you want very very badly?

Go on--take part. You have shown me so much love! You know so much about me.

Now I want to know about YOU! :)

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…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
