Sparkle #195: Last Minute Father’s Day Ideas

Hello folks, how is June coming along for everyone? I am sure most of you are mad at me for not posting as often as I used to. But the last couple of weeks have been a little crazy for me and my family. My sister took ill, then I had to undergo a painful and long wisdom tooth extraction and now my brother is facing wisdom teeth issues of his own – definitely not party times for our family! Am not so sure about the wisdom, but these teeth are definitely bringing a lot of pain along with them. Here are some hilarious illustrations on how…

Sparkle #194: R.M. Drake and his Beautiful Poetry

If you are active on social media, then I am sure you must have stumbled upon the poetic brilliance of R.M. Drake. He is a literary success story from the digital age, as his works were first published and discovered on Instagram! Drake first started posting excerpts from his work on Instagram as an experiment, not realizing that they would go viral overnight. He soon acquired a massive fan following which included popular celebrities like the Kardashians and Ludacris. All of this led him to a global distribution deal which allowed him to sell his self-published works through top booksellers like Amazon. A compilation of his best poems and…

Sparkle #193: Business Advice from TV Shows

Happy Monday folks! I looked at the calendar today and realized it’s almost June – the middle of the year. I cannot believe the pace at which this year is moving. I feel like I am always playing catch-up with both my personal and professional to-do list. There’s always so much to be done, and so little time… Thinking about life, time and my lengthy list of things to do always brings my spirits down. So to cheer up my Monday, I thought of seeking advice from some of my favorite people in the world – TV show characters! A while back, I wrote a post…

Sparkle #192: Incredible India!

India – the land of multiple sights, sounds and experiences. A country which belongs to both the rich and the poor, the old and the young alike. This is the same place where you will find something as enchanting as the Taj Mahal, and something as depressing as the polluted river Yamuna. People here can be extremely helpful and friendly, or they can be really good con artists who will not shy away from making an extra buck off a gullible tourist. Brimming with diverse but complementary cultures, India can be loud, exaggerated and overwhelming for anyone. But once you spend some time here, it becomes easy to spot a method to it’s madness,…

Out With The Old, In With The New

I am writing this post from a room which is bare, empty and feels cold, even though today is a particularly warm summer day. All the paraphernalia on my desk has been packed in boxes, and the pictures and postcards on the walls have been stripped off. No, I am not moving anywhere. I am simply re-building my study room / work-space. After a lot of thinking, planning, postponing and some more planning, I finally decided that I had to re-do my room this year. Over the last few years, I have collected and parked a lot of memories and a whole lot more objects in…
