Staying connected (blog marathon post 4)

On Saturdays, my day day begins with checking how my column looks in print in The Financial Chronicle. For those who are not aware, I write a column every Saturday called 'Sex and the city' in the Financial Chronicle. It has everything to do with man-woman relationships, sex, love, how men and women are different etc. I cover a range of topics. If you want to read it, you can either you can find it online, or you could pick up a physical copy (recommended) :)

This was my column today.


One of the things I love doing is reading a  newspaper with a cup of coffee, in the mornings. I read multiple newspapers. I mostly skip the depressing or salacious stuff. I like reading the middle, the editorials and I also like 'The Speaking Tree' in Times of India, which has spiritual pieces.

We went to the multiplex yesterday and watched Me before You. It is rated 8.1 on IMDB and the movie is beautiful. I must say though that I liked Waiting, better.

There was an important message in the movie: That if you love someone, you just accept them for who they are. You may not agree or like the choices they make. But if you truly love them, then you do not try and change their minds to what you think is right. The choices they make are right for them. You accept and support them.

Thank you to all of you who left a comment on my son's blog.  ( For those who haven't read my last post, they are a collection of photos that he clicks with a little write-up about each post) .It has been getting a really nice response.

That's all from me from today.
See you again tomorrow!

  2. Madam, as your day begins with going through newspapers with a cuppa of tea likewise my Saturday begins with reading your article in FC with of course a cuppa of tea. Your blog marathons always fill up those gaps of seven days in between.
    Thanks for staying connected with your readers.

  6. I normally read your article on Sex and the city online. It really makes me happy that you write about issues which affect many people everyday. We may love someone for who they are and we must appreciate them even if their views are different from ours. I have found myself trying to change people, but in the end I realized that that's who they are and this is how I am :-) By the way, I visit Atul's blog on a daily basis and it is really nice to see his photographs and description for each photograph. :-)

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …
