Love, friendship and a guy called Wreck-it-Ralph

Sometimes a movie you watch leaves a lingering imprint in your mind and touches your soul. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, it inspires you and makes you want to be a better person. It transports you to another world for a few hours and you become one with the characters. You find your heart beating wildly when they are about to do something dangerous you find yourself wiping a tear that has slipped out when something terrible happens to them and when they finally succeed you want to stand up hug them and give them an ovation.
Instead you sit glued to your seat, staring at the screen even as the credits roll.

I watched such a movie the other day. It was an animation movie. The graphics were brilliant and though the story had the usual twists and turns of a good commercial movie, what had me was the brilliant concept of a bad guy in an arcade game, wanting to be good. I fell in love with Wreck-it ralph just a few minutes into the movie.


Here is a trailer (which I really think does not do justice to what the movie is all about)



If you have a child in your life watch it with them. And if you do not have a child in your life, watch it for the child inside you.

It makes you feel grateful for all your  good friendships (oh yes there can be horrible friendships too--but I will save that for another post)  and  it makes you go awww.

And it makes you believe that Love and Friendship make life worth living. (Perhaps it resonated so much with me as that is the core theme of all my books)

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…
