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.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
