Mango, dates & vermicelli payasam / kheer (pudding) – Remember when you used to go back to school after the summer holidays and you’d totally forgotten how to tie your tie or do long division? The adult version of that is surely returning to work after Christmas/ New Year festive season. Don’t worry – you’re not alone. Opps!! It took awhile for me to settle back after that festive season.

No matter how much you love your passion; there will always be days when you need inspiration from one muse or another. We all needs to find inspiration, in order to produce inspired creations.



I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite ways of finding inspiration — some of them obvious, some of them less so. But it’s always good to have reminders, and if you haven’t used a few of these sources of inspiration in a while, give them a go.

Blogs :

This is one of my favorites, of course. I have many amazing blogging friends who are so great in inspirational writings.

The other all sources which I depend are books, magazines, movies, art, quotes, nature, travel, children, success stories and my dreams.
