What do I want for my children?


What do I want for my children?

I want my children’s lives to be an extension of mine.
To explore more learnings than I have done.
Make the difficult choices that I made.
To retain a clarity of the soul and spirit.
To clean up their baggages everyday.
To keep asking questions irrespective of yesterday’s answers….

I want them to be wild and fun loving
and very much in control of what they do
I want them to take the right things seriously and give their very best.
I want them to use these two traits at the right times and places.
I want them to make the right choices when they respond to people and situations

Beyond that
I want them to be the best that they can be
With a heart that’s always at peace
And work that’s sensible to the world.
I wish they make no compromises of things of their heart
And they can always cut corners and adjust with things that give less comfort.

They should live a life of inspiration to others.
Climb mountains.
Fly a plane.
Bathe in the streams and rivers.
Converse and work with a chosen family.
Have a long term sense of peace
Have short term adventures

I want them to have the wisdom to know what to start and when to start and also when to stop.
I want them to be completely true to themselves and their deep yearnings and never to compromise on these.
I want them never to give up.

Co- create



thoughts clash

pictures merge

people meet eye to eye

and sometimes try to knock off one of them

when little children learn to collaborate

learn to share

form a picture book together………………….

This is a story of Mumbai bred Sheela and her experiences with her cousins in Rajasthan. Its a story which is set in scenic Rajasthan, and is embellished with a Rajasthani painting ‘touch’ – typical bright colours in a muddy-brown background. The story is about understanding and patience, as much as it is about opening up to new experiences. Children between the ages of 5 and 9 are most likely to enjoy this book as it takes them through similar real life experiences.
