My Indore trip. (with lots of pictures from my talk at Acropolis college)

I have just got back from the beautiful city of Indore. My talk at Acropolis college was a HUGE success. I spoke about my journey and '5 Ways to a Happier You'.
A packed auditorium, giant hoardings all over the college (I was so surprised!), a very large turnout and so much love and respect, that just thinking about it envelops me in this warm feeling.

Was mobbed for signing books!

Another shot of the audience

The hospitality and arrangements made by the faculty and students of Acropolis college Indore was exemplary. I do feel very blessed to have been in their midst and shared those few hours.  The students and the staff---all unequivocally told me that they found my talk outstanding---inspiring, entertaining, and that it helped and motivated them. Cherished memories indeed were made.

If you want to see more pics of the event, you can go here.

After that I got an opportunity to go around the city of Indore. The owners of Readers Paradise which was where the book event was held, were very sweet to me. His son, accompanied me, and we visited many sites in Indore. I am sharing one pic, clicked in front of Rajwada Indore.





I will be making sketches of these places, over the next few days and I will share them on my Instagram art page.

In the flight too I made a few sketches. I shall share them too very soon.

I am just about recovering from a very hectic trip.(I had to leave home at 2.30 to catch the only direct flight from Bangalore which leaves at 5.20 am)
But I feel so blessed, fortunate and happy.

My next stop will be NAGPUR, which will be on December 1st. Block your dates, if you live there.

Will blog again soon.
Till then, stay positive.'
Love'

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 Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

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…
