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!

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'

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…
