Become a book fairy! Brighten someone's day :)

Hi there!


Am off to become a book fairy :)

Wondering what a book fairy is?
Read this article (written by yours truly)  which explains it. (click on image to enlarge)

You can also read the above article here.

I shall come back and update this post.
Till then stay tuned :)

Here are the three books I left around for people to find:


And here's the second one:
And the third one is my own which I left in a flight :)

  1. Such a beautiful concept. Thanks for the information. Now on, one can pick a book placed by a book fairy without any guilt, and after having gone through it, can place back for further reading by another book lover. I too intend to place a book in Delhi Metro, but not an author signed one. A book with its author's signature is something to preserve; it immediately takes us to the moment when it was being signed.

  2. Wow! This is such an interesting concept. I have never heard about this before. I know that reading is a wonderful hobby, and once you start, you won't be able to stop. One of the nice things is to share the books which bring lots of peace and joy to one's life so that others can also experience the same. I will definitely let my friends who love to read know about this concept - in case they are not already aware of it. Thank you!

  5. What a lovely concept this is ma'am. In US here we have a concept of painting stones with a positive image and hiding it in the garden or a porch or any public place. It indeed does plant a smile on the faces who receive these beautiful stones. When I come back to India for my vacation, I am surely going to participate in book fairy concept. :-)

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 few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…
