A post card from jaipur and from Rock Garden :) (blog marathon post 18)

Yesterday morning, I  was in Chandigarh and  had about an hour or so before we boarded our flight to Jaipur. So I visited the Rock garden and had a WONDERFUL time!
Here is a pic from the visit!


 

 By the time our flight landed in Jaipur (and we had to take a flight from Chandigarh to Delhi and then another flight from Delhi to Jaipur)  it was nearly 5.00 pm and I barely had time to get ready and rush for the event.

But I think we managed more than fine considering the circumstances :)

And here are, as promised in the last post,  some pictures from the Jaipur launch of 'It Happens for a reason'.

 









We had a full house!! If you want to see more pics, you can check out my Facebook Author page--links on the right. Almost every newspaper in Chandigarh as well as Jaipur featured 'It Happens for a Reason' To see the full Media coverage, you can go here. (Go on ! And do check it out :) )

Now I am back in Bangalore. Oh the joy!
Nothing like home sweet home.

I felt like I could sleep for the next few days. And I felt I had earned it.
But then I had to write my newspaper column! Which I did :)

I rewarded myself with something I love doing--but I will leave that to you to guess.

Ciao! Until tomorrow--stay happy!

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
