A few blessings.

Most of last few weeks, Indian summer has been at it's full scorch.  But these days, Bangalore feels like heaven.It's cloudy,cool winds blow and the skies paint themselves into landscapes worthy of a Monet's painting.

This was my view.



And as I watched the sun set,  it changed to this:


Truly felt like paradise. It was breathtakingly stunning.

Then the kids were hungry. They wanted a snack. Junk food is something I dislike. I am all for lip-smacking, nutritious, healthy home cooked stuff, which can be made in a jiffy. Here is what I made:




In case you wish to make it, the recipe is here.

 This evening, I made another equally tasty (and healthy)  snack. Here is what I made:



 I spread butter on one side. Then I topped  the other with grated Cheddar cheese, granulated garlic and chilly flakes. (you could just use freshly crushed Garlic too). Grilled it in the oven at 150 degree centigrade for about 7-10 minutes or till the cheese melts.

The kids said it was delicious and  they  simply gobbled it up.

A peaceful day with  fabulous weather, great food and the love of a wonderful family.
Sometimes, the smallest things are the greatest blessings.
I am grateful.

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

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…
