A picture post. A produce and the farmer ( Blog marathon post 10)

Thought I would make this a picture post. These are a couple of pictures clicked in the last one week, around my home.


Beans that I have grown on my terrace. I have an organic vegetable garden.



This is how it looked on the plant.





Fresh tomatoes. This is my first tomato harvest. Regular readers may remember them from my first post.



Healthy green, fresh, fragrant mint! It grows so well.


 And  the farmer :)


But of course that is not how I look when I am gardening :) I am too sweaty, dirty and involved to pose for pictures then! 

G'nite folks. New post tomorrow. 

Pssst: Don't forget to leave me comments if you are like my posts. Marathon is hard work you know and I could use a little encouragement.

  8. I know I am late in offering encouragement but as I am reading your marathon posts, I am constantly wondering at the time and effort you have put in it. I am sure you are also working on your books or book tours plus there's always managing home to do for a woman. Right now, I am working on my blog and your dedication inspires me no end! Thank you so much and keep up the good work!

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…

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:

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…
