Help from unexpected quarters and when least expected !

A few months ago I had stated an intent and actively sought somebody’s guidance to fulfill it. I got a lot more help from this person than I had anticipated. I even started out on the track indicated by this person. Things have slowly begun to change. For the last couple of days I was feeling a little slack. My energy applied to this intent was dwindling. I was beginning to doubt or have negative thoughts about my abilities.

Suddenly this morning, a timely reminder…a little push…a small reassurance came from somebody with whom I have never had such interactions before and it happened out of the blue…when the topic was not even remotely being discussed ! This time too I got quite a lot.

I have been thinking why this help has come to me without asking for it. I think I needed a little bit right now and hence it came to me even though I had not asked for it. Also, I think I may not have consciously asked for it, but the other day I made a bucket list and I must have written or intended to write something in it which may have brought it to me. I don’t know for sure. I can only speculate. But one thing is for sure that I am indeed grateful for it.

My belief in The Law of Attraction is becoming firmer day by day :)

How NOT to compère a function

Recently I attended an awards ceremony. It was a grand function with a huge audience in attendance. Many awards were given and some speeches too. The compère was, unintentionally, terribly funny !

In this function, when the compère announced the first award winner, he announced, “Please welcome on stage Mr. X (pause) married to (pause) wife Mrs. X (pause) from 1977 and successfully (pause) completed 32 years of (pause) married life…” I had tears in my eyes from laughing too hard :D

Later, the same compère, while telling the audiences about a certain award winner, said, “…he is married (pause) to wife Mrs. Z (pause) and enjoys playing with his (pause) children K and M. His favourite (pause) holiday destination is (pause) the beaches (pronounced as ‘bitches’) of (pause) Goa” I nearly died choking with laughter for this one !

In the 45 minutes that he was on stage he was responsible for much hilarity due to his totally inappropriate commentary. I, of course, laughed my guts out and what cou…

Belgaum Snapshots

On popular demand (= request from (possibly) the only reader of this blog), we interrupt the broadcast of the UK diaries to post about the short work-vacation trip to Belgaum. For those interested and waiting with bated breath (!) for the last instalment of the UK diaries, it shall be broadcast after this post…I promise !

I am currently on a short trip to Belgaum to conduct a theatre workshop for kids aged 8 to 15 years. I had never been to Belgaum before. So this has been a very interesting experience.
Here are some (word, not photograph) snapshots from the trip.
The first thing that struck me as I reached here was the very different way in which everybody spoke Marathi. The accent is distinctly Kannada and the words and sounds are very well rounded. In Pune-Mumbai we speak in quite a sharp manner…crisply cut sounds et al. Also, there is a fun way of combining the last two words (usually the verbs, in Marathi) of a sentence.
I learnt that almost 80% of the population of Belgaum i…
