Is there something called destiny? (post 16)

If you haven't yet watched the movie Lion, please do go and watch it this weekend. It is the true life story of Saroo Brierley. I was so deeply moved by the movie, that I bought the book, immediately, and I am currently reading it.

The book first published as ' A long way home' and subsequently, after the movie came out, has been published as Lion.

Watching the movie, and reading the book makes you believe that there indeed is something called destiny.

Our life paths unfold exactly the way it was meant to.



That is the core message of my last novel too. That we all have  our destinies.

Does that mean we adopt a fatalistic approach and leave it all to chance? No. We put in efforts, we steer our lives, and we accept the outcomes.

Hard to do, but it comes with time. And age.

That's all for today folks.
Tomorrow--meet me here again :)

  1. Destiny has been a very vague concept for me to comprehend, given all the uncertainties and variables in life. Having said that I will definitely watch the movie...movies with philosophical touch always leave you with something to ponder on.

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

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…
