Some talks to remember

If you haven't heard of Ted talks, you have been missing a lot! They are described as 'riveting talks by remarkable people' free to the world. I have enjoyed a lot of these amazing talks, the most recent one I watched being this amazing talk by David Blaine on how he held his breath for seventeen minutes under water.

Ted X are created in the spirit of Ted's mission and they are independently organised Ted event. They happen all over the world.You can find a Ted X event near you, and attend it. You could use this link to know more.

I have been invited as a Ted X speaker for an event happening on 9th June. All details  are here:

The talk I will be giving is called '5 lessons for growth or in other words, 5 important lessons life has taught me'.  I would be sharing 5 important rules one needs to follow if one has to grow. I would be peppering it with all that I have learnt in my life's journey --right from school, to where I am today, how I grew, the mistakes I made, the failures I faced, the defeats I had to accept and the sacrifices I had to make to reach where I am today. It would be a honest, straight from the heart talk.
Once the event is over, the talk would be freely available on the Internet. I am indeed looking forward to this as much as I am looking forward to hear what the other speakers have to say and share.

I think there is a LOT one can learn from talks like these. A talk which particularly impressed me was a recent one by Neil Gaiman.

If you haven't yet seen it, stop what you are doing right now and watch this:

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…
