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!

We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

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…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
