A talk at the Lucknow University and Lucknow lit fest (blog marathon post 13)

The folks at Lucknow University are fabulous!I had a wonderful time there this morning, where I gave a talk, about 5 lessons I learnt on my journey from a blogger to an author.

Prof.Nishi Pandey, who is  the Head of Department of English and Modern languages, And also the Director of Planning and development board  , Director is Ineternational collaborations  and the International Students advisor  is a warm and wonderful person. I loved conversing with her. Her depth of knowledge and her perspectives are refreshing and I enjoyed every moment spent with her.

The students of the University came up with some intelligent questions and I enjoyed answering them. One of them made this lovely card for me, and cleverly used all the titles of my books to convey a super-sweet message! Here we are posing with the card. In the picture is Prof.Nishi Pandey, Vishaka (who made the card) and  you know who the third person is :)




This is what she wrote inside the card:


Thank you Vishakha and the University of Lucknow. Let me confess--I loved interacting with all of you too!

Here is a picture of me with the staff and students of Lucknow University who attended my talk.




And here is Prof.Nishi Pandey and me at the Lucknow lit fest.




And here I am posing in front of the Scientific Convention center , Lucknow, where the litfest is being held.

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…
