A racoon and a donkey (post 17)

Many people who read my books are unaware that I also make art. I have been doing this since my childhood, and it is one thing that gives me immense joy, apart from my writing.

An art course that I did a while back, had a very interesting exercise. We had to get realistic looking  plastic animals, use them as models and then make realistic animal sketches.
Today I took out my collection of animals, and here's what i made.


A brown raccon




And a donkey.

And here they are, now a part of my sketchbook!

  1. It's inspiring and amusing to see how you take breaks from doing your regular work (writing), which is art by itself, and breathe life into these other forms of art and rejuvenate yourself in the process. No wonder you are able to get so much out of 24 hours in a day :).

    Your sketches look superior than the models.

  6. Very Nice. I had done art work only in my 12th std biology class and for my btech graphics class. I did enjoy them but never carried this interest forward. Your work is very inspiring. Brown Racoon looks lovely

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…

It means that I will be posting a new entry, every single day, the whole of this month! So don't forget to hit 'subscribe' on top of this blog (see the button there? Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.
