New Book! Do you want to know the title? (and also some post cards from Bhutan!)

Hi there,
If you have been following my Facebook public posts, or my Instagram,  or my column in Financial Chronicle, you would know that I have just got back from an AMAZING holiday in Bhutan.
The country is PURE magic.

I stayed in Thimpu Punakha and Paro. It was ethereal.

Here are a couple of pictures, in case you missed my posts.


By the river Wangchuk in Thimpu.

 This was at a Nunnery in Paro.

 At Thimpu. The Buddha is MAGNIFICENT. I  feel so blessed to have the privilege of being able to  sketch this scene.
 The art is to Die for!
Fooling around :) (Life is a crazy ride and nothing is guaranteed)


I also did an amazing trek (walked 18.3 kms!!) to Tigers Nest. But I will save that for another post.

I came back with a loud THUD to India, wishing my holiday would not end, and it took me a while to get back to Social Media :)

But now I am here, and excited about me new book coming out :)

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…

I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
