Amritsar: A city of warmth and sweetness!



Amritsar is a city I have travelled to a few times. The Golden Temple is is spectacularly beautiful, and mesmerizes me each time I visit.
I LOVE the street food in Amritsar. I love the warmth of the people, the noise, the colour, the bustle, the crowd--all of it seeped in history, religion and culture.
So for today's sketch (I am doing a drawing challenge--one new picture, every single day, the whole of May) I thought I would pay tribute to an unknown Jalebi seller in this magnificent city.

Come back tomorrow for a new drawing and a new post.
If you have been to Amritsar, or have always wanted to go, tell me in comments :)

  5. Hello maam my ancestors belonged to this amazing city. I love being there as the warmth n culture always pull you back to ur roots. Golden temple is a serene place ,one can spend hours without even realising the time. The city of Amritsar is also synonym to some mouth watering delicacies. I hope u tried the lassi , phirni and it's famous satpura (a baked flaky patty stuffed with mashed potatoes). Did u visit Kesar da dhaba and Wagah border?
    No matter how many times u visit this city it never fails to welcome you wholeheartedly.

  6. I have heard so much about Amritsar. Some of my friends and relatives post photos when they go on vacation, and whenever they post about Amritsar, I feel like I was there too. Such a beautiful city. Will let you know if I ever visit.

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…

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…

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…
