Session at Kindle Litfest X and a free booklet !




Thought I would share with you, the video recording of Litfest X, which was a virtual litfest, organised by Amazon's Kindle. I am in conversation with Kumaar Bagrodia, who is the festival director.
I had a great time, interacting with everyone who logged in that day. (People could login and interact with me, real time). It was fun and I enjoyed myself.  The first three chapters of my new book Why We Love The Way We Do, was released during this session.

If you want to download  the free booklet, (there's a signed photo of me in there as well), here is the link:

I am really excited about this book, mostly because I have spent hours and hours, talking to people, researching stuff about relationships, pondering about them asking questions, and discovering and learning many things. I have quoted real-life examples, studies, what the experts say. The short essays give us answers to many pertinent  questions like 'Is it possible to tell if it is love or lust', 'Why do break-ups hurt so much?' and 'Whether friends with benefits' is a good option in relationships.

The book is divided into seven sections, and each section has a specific topic.

My publishers have an arrangement with Amazon, and I will be signing ALL the copies that are pre-ordered. Those who have been following my blog, would remember what back-breaking work that is going to be.

But I am looking forward to it!

Incidentally, the book is already on the best-sellers on amazon.in. I have to thank you guys for making that happen.
And in case  you are one of those late-kates (Or late-latif if you want to be Indian) and still do not know the pre-order link, here it is:  bit.ly/WhyWeLoveTheWayWeDo

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…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
