A relaxed Sunday (blog marathon post 19)

Some time back, I have having a conversation with my writer friends. And we were all discussing relationships.

We all agreed on the following:





On this topic, here is an interesting article:

My Sunday was a lovely, relaxed one. We watched Udta Punjab. (Loved it, though I found it very disturbing). Then we had a family conversation about it. We always discuss the movies we watch. The essence of it, how it panned out, how we can relate to it in real life, what we learnt from it, how it could have been different and all of that. It is wonderful, to have these conversations, which I really enjoy, especially as I get very interesting perspectives, from both my children, as well as spouse.

Here is a picture from my day today:


 Till tomorrow! Ciao!

  1. Yeah ! healthy discussions among family members about things that a family shares are really great. We get to know the viewpoints of each other.

  7. It is always nice to spend time with family and one of those ways is by watching a movie and discussing it afterwards, perhaps over a cup of coffee. Yet to watch the movie which has become quite popular. Have a great week ahead!

  8. Discussions in families are like boosters for life. After a hectic day, some time with family will release all the stress..The family that lives together, eats together is the happiest family..

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…
