Breaking Bad ! (blog marathon post 21)

Television is something I detest. Like  Roald Dahl says

Television - Poem by Roald Dahl

The most important thing we've learned,
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set --
Or better still, just don't install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we've been,
We've watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone's place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they're hypnotised by it,
Until they're absolutely drunk
With all that shocking ghastly junk.

Read the whole poem here


I know many who are addicted to TV series, especially some who used to be addicted to Friends. (They watch it over and over again). I haven't seen a single episode of friends. Sure, i can talk about it, as I read about it, but I simply do not have the patience to sit through an episode.
Disclaimer: I have nothing against those who watch Friends and who love it! 

However, there are two shows that I watched fully. One is Band of Brothers and the other,is Breaking Bad.

Just finished wacthing all five seasons, of Breaking Bad, the last three in the final season, I watched back to back. I just couldn't budge. It was a great story.

If you have seen it, tell me what you liked about it, who is your favourite charatcer, and what did it make you conclude.
If you haven't seen it, go watch!

Till tomorrow!
Adios!

  1. I am not ashamed to admit that I used to love friends back in the day...still I try to avoid watching television as much as I can

  2. Television is a real time waster of life, but some shows are really good, once in a while it's good to watch.

  3. Friends has been one of my most favorite shows of all time. It's the bond between each one of them and of course the comedy which makes me want to keep watching more and more of its old episodes. Thanks for mentioning about the two TV shows which you watch. Never heard of them before. Shall definitely check it out. Thanks!

  4. That's sad what you said about Friends, it's one of the best show ever, it's even better than Breaking Bad (Although I loved that too), a few years back I also got myself into finishing series to series in a week but even at that point of time, I didn't watch tv, infact we don't have a TV in home anymore :D Just got a good internet connection, people watch youtube sometimes but still, it's way better than what really happens when you do have a TV. I would recommend that you give Friend series a try, you won't regret it. Also How I met your mother is good one, at the end of each episode, you will find something useful to apply in your life. Now coming to the favorite character in Breaking bad :D, I really used to hate that guy named Jesse Pinkman (I guess this is the right name), but later on, i started liking him very much, he's a great character and soul of the series :D

    1. Hey Iqbal---I don't have anything against people who watch Friends! Personally, not for me. I have watched a few episodes of two and a half men.
      Friends is rated 9 on imdb. Breaking bad is rated 9.5
      Different strokes for different folks, I guess!

      Why did you hate Jesse?! :)

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.

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…

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…
