It takes a lifetime to know what one really enjoys, what is the essesnce of what one calls 'I'
These are some of the things that make me happy and keep me in tune with myself.
There is nothing more I enjoy
than sitting on a deep cushion, with a hot cup of filter coffee (I love coffee) and chatting with a friend about life.
am a reader, and read as much as I possibly can and enjoy reading all kinds of things though I am a little partial towards
non fiction and spiritual poetry.
I enjoy walks in the Himalays, going through villages and just watching people go
about their lives, the simplicity of life has always amazed me, how we clutter our lives with so many things that we dont
need becomes glaringly clear when one watches the simple village life.
Photography is another thing that I enjoy and
take as my pictures as I possibly can, long drives with the windows down and music playing, heaven ! Visiting places of historic
interest have always fasinated me and the first thing that I look up in a new place that I visit is the ruins of old forts
and palaces and then ofcourse the museums.
Collecting antiques, silver, porcelain, jewellery, books and works of art
done by upcoming artists, though I dont like abstract too much untill I can feel it as the artist intends it to be.
is something that I enjoy and find de-stressing and much to the horror of the kitchen staff am in the kitchen nearly everyday,
I am also working on writting a cookbook on the foods of Kutlehar.
As it is such an integral part of our lives, I
enjoy designing jewellery, and needless to say most of the time things from our collection are subjected to my 'artistic whims'
I must add though that I never touch the major pieces or the pieces of historic intrest.
For a long time my friend,
Sonali kept telling me about the joys of surfing the net and chatting online, eventually when I did listen to her and got
on line, I can hardly get off, and can now sometimes be online for hours at a strech.
Gardening is something that my English friend Jane Perkins introduced me to, before that all that I knew were names
of everyday flowers and tress, she introduced me to the wonderful feeling that one gets with ones hands in the mud.
thing which has come to mean much to me, but I started it late is writting. I like to write about philosophy, self improvement,
spiritual poetry, among other things.
