The people we meet. (blog marathon post 12)




Each  person we meet and  spend time with is a criss-crossing  paths---that of their life journey with ours. The foot prints they leave, we carry around in our hearts, knowingly or unknowingly, sometimes as a memory, sometimes as a personality trait and at times as a part of ourselves, often embedded so deeply,  a perfectly blended intrinsic part of us, we don’t even realise it is not our own.

A match of mental wave-lengths and the mental-connect you establish is hard to find. You may like one aspect of someone's personality, but may be totally incompatible in other areas. I have met people, with whom the conversation dries out in a matter of seconds and then I have people with whom I can speak for 101 nights and  101 days and still have topics to speak about.

 And then there are people who walk away. They go out of our lives, so that someone else, who has something for you, can take their place. If you have been closely attached to them, the pain as they peel away can be lacerating.


From each of the terrible relatioships/friendships that broke, we have learnt and we have grown. We have emerged better people because of it.

And sometimes, people act in insane ways,. All for  crazy funny thing called Love.
In the end, that is all what counts. If you have it, hold on to it, believe in it and keep the faith—it is all going to be okay.

  2. Meeting someone new is something I look forward to all the time. It helps me get to know someone and also makes me a better and more understanding person. There are so many people who have come into my life and have left a mark back which will never get erased. What's better is when we are still in touch with these people even if we don't meet/speak often. That's the beauty of relationships.

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…
